I never had the opportunity to meet Craig Sager personally but somehow you felt like you have known him all of your life. The colorful suits, the memorable interviews – Craig Sager was more than a sideline reporter – he was part of the fabric of the NBA – he was family. I remember being […]


WELL it probably was not the way Bernard Hopkins wanted to officially retire.  But that is part of life sometimes you are not in a place to write how it ends. After seven competitive rounds with Joe Smith Jr. – Hopkins was knocked out of the ring (literally) and was unable to come back and […]


I’ve been a fan of Charles Barkley’s for a long time – he doesn’t pull any punches and at times he makes me laugh.  He is who he is and sometimes Chuck can put his big foot in his mouth too. So when he recently called out the Golden State Warriors and called their style […]

BITTERLY Disappointed

COACH Jim Harbaugh said it best – after the loss to the Ohio State Suckeyes – Coach Harbaugh was not in the mood and the press could see it and feel it.  He came out on fire – “I’m bitterly disappointed” “I’m bitterly disappointed in the officials” You go Jim because that is definitely how […]

WHAT Happened?

IT is true when they say the NFL means – Not for Long.  Boy things certainly look different this season. Last season Cam Newton was the toast of the NFL – forget Mike – everyone wanted to be like Cam.  He was dabbing his way into the hearts of millions of football fans and even […]

Oh, say can you see

To all those Patriotic Americans who are strongly against Colin Kaepernick.  I’ve heard you use words like pathetic, sickening, and disrespectful.  I’ve seen you burn your jerseys and quite a few of you have used this time to call him a nigger and have asked him to leave the country. But what is TRULY sad […]


Nothing like a bunch of spoiled frat boys to ruin a good party.  That party is only the Olympics in Rio and the frat boys are swimmers Ryan Lochte, Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen. We have now all heard the REAL story – instead of being robbed at gun point.  We learn they […]


So the NFL has threatened James Harrison, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers and Mike Neal.  The league has stated that each player will be suspended if they do not cooperate with the NFL’s investigation on allegations that all four of them received performance-enhancing drugs.  Now mind you the guy who originally put this story out there […]


She stands only 4 feet 9 inches but she is the biggest athlete around.  Simone Biles is larger than life when it comes to gymnastics.  She put on an incredible show in Rio winning four gold medals and 1 bronze.  She has made her mark following in the steps of our other golden girl Gabby […]


It’s all about the Benjamins baby Now, what y’all wanna do? It’s all about the Benjamins baby Wanna be ballers, shot-callers It’s all about the Benjamins baby Brawlers — who be dippin in the Benz wit the spoilers It’s all about the Benjamins baby The NBA has definitely been making it rain.  There are some […]


I never met Pat Summitt personally but she was always someone who I truly admired from afar.  I loved the fact that she was fearless and tough.  When you thought of Pat Summitt you thought of a great coach.  I never thought of her as a “female” coach – she was just a great coach […]


THERE was more drama this season during the NBA Finals than an episode of the Young and the Restless.  On and off the court everyone had strong opinions and this was ratings gold for the advertisers. Yes I had picked the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 to win and well….  Regardless of how you […]

Joining the guys from the Crush Sports Talk Show


I could not even imagine waking up on Sunday morning to find out someone I loved was killed in a senseless massacre.  But that is just what happened to many families and my heart breaks for all those who lost someone in one of the worst mass shootings in US history. A coward entered Pulse […]


“The Greatest” Muhammad Ali has died. All my life I saw Muhammad Ali as a superhero a larger than life athlete. It was no secret that Ali was a phenomenal boxer – the only heavy weight to win three world championships. But Muhammad Ali was also a strong black man who in the 1960’s refused […]


EGO is a powerful thing. Ego starts wars, ruins corporations and kills for no reason. Ego a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Brady recently filed an appeal on the decision that upheld his four-game suspension. Tom Brady’s ego is ridiculous and he simply needs to let this fight go.  It has been almost 500 days since […]


SOMETIMES the little guy wins. The Toronto Raptors did not let up and went toe to toe with the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 4.  Now they almost took their considerable lead for granted and allowed the Cavs to catch up.  But Kyle Lowry was the little engine that could and refused to quit.  He put […]

SAY it ain’t so

WELL another incredible Detroit Lion bites the dust – Calvin Johnson aka Megatron has said he is retiring.  Just repeating those words hurts – no Calvin you can’t leave us! Megatron is responsible for some of the most electrifying and craziest catches in the NFL (pre Odell Beckham Jr) over the last few seasons.  We need […]

OLD School vs NEW School

SUPER Bowl 50 might not be as “drama filled” as some of the previous games or as splashy.  But it is the most interesting with two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league. PEYTON Manning aka The Sheriff – high football IQ and one of the most influential players in the league.  Respected and admired […]

WHAT the Buc?

YEAH I get it – the NFL is a business and it is all about “What have you done for me lately?” but there are times when I’m scratching my head on some of the decisions being made. When I heard that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had fired coach Lovie Smith I was upset.  First […]

THE Panthers Purr

WHO would have thought the Carolina Panthers would end the season at 15-1? I know I did not and if you did not like all the dancing, the smiling and laughing on the sidelines then something is seriously wrong with you. Thank the football Gods for the Carolina Panthers.  The Panthers had fun this season […]


The Carolina Panthers are 12-0 and the ONLY undefeated team in the NFL yet they get no love. I don’t want to be that person to blame “the media” when well I’m part of the media.  But where is the love for the Panthers? If this was the Patriots, Broncos or Giants “the media” would be […]


Yes Ray Rice deserves another chance. If Greg Hardy can put on a Dallas Cowboy jersey every Sunday and play –  then Ray Rice deserves to put on a jersey too.  Yes Ray Rice had the video that to this day makes me sick.  There is no excuse – you don’t hit a woman – […]


It is no secret that the hottest thing going right now is football and nothing gets folks crazy than rooting for their college football team. College football fans are fiercely loyal and just like the NFL it is also all about the money.  Schools expect to win and schools in the south well it is […]

Follow the Money

THE University of Missouri system’s President Tim Wolfe and the chancellor R. Bowen Loftin have both resigned. The University of Missouri has been dealing with racial issues on campus that caused African-American students to protest, some faculty threatening to walk-out, one student to go on a hunger strike and the football team to announce they would […]
