Football is Back!

The NFL is back for real this week. That's right! No more pre-season stuff that doesn't matter. The games are real and so are the hits. I have said before that I am not the biggest NFL fan these days, but there is no doubt that the NFL is the national sport of the USA. First, let's just take the...

Ted's Blog: NBA Playoffs: Game 7

One of the great thing in sports is game seven in any playoff series. In football, we get used to the 'one and done' way of things. In the playoffs, you win and advance in the series. In baseball, hockey and basketball though it is always a series and when it comes to a winner-take-all game seven...

Ted's Blog: NHL Fever

This blog is really just to say how fired up I am about the NHL playoffs! And the Washington Capitals have a chance to undo so much pain at the hands of the Pittsburg Penguins. As I have stated in past blogs, when you grow up in the Washington DC area, you kind of get used to the Caps being good...
