A Trough of Meat and Football, Texas Style!

So I went to Dallas, Texas last weekend for the Red River Rivalry which is the annual match up between Texas and Oklahoma. College football is one of my favorite things in the world and I love a good tailgate. Years ago, my brother and I decided that once a year we get together and watch a iconic...

The World Cup Does NOT Floweth Over!

Sad times indeed for the USA. I am not making any kind of political statement here, but I am talking about how our national team failed to make The World Cup. It is a bad joke and national nightmare that we could not even qualify for our group Concacaf, which is not the most completive group in the...

Footballin'!

Hola Bitcholas, Hope you had a fine weekend. If not, it's no fault of mine. Or, if it is, sorry 'bout that. My daughter had a soccer game on Saturday, so there I was watching her version of the sport. It was not pretty. What's the opposite of 'pretty' but uglier than 'ugly'? It was like that. The...

Saturdays in the Fall Rock!

Well, it's that time of year again! When college football is back and Saturdays are the best. Now, I know a most of you are huge NFL fans. My love for college football starts with the fact that the games are on Saturdays. I like to enjoy an adult beverage so to me it makes more sense to party on...

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...

First Pitches

In this world, you have goals and dreams growing up you wish to one day accomplish. Going to a baseball game and throwing out the first pitch was always a dream of mine. I have yet to get to throw one out at a Major League Baseball game, but have had the honor of throwing out a first pitch at two...

Ted's Blog: Football Already?

I honestly can't believe that I am even typing this, but football (all be it pre-season football) is already back! The annual Hall of Fame Game that kicks off the pre-season schedule is already being played this week. Pre-Season NFL football is an odd beast. While it does scratch the itch of...

Ted's Blog: Tennis Buffy

I mean, I'm kind of making a joke here in having titled this 'Tennis Buff-y'. I am not the biggest tennis fan in the world, but I always enjoy watching one person dominate their profession. Roger Federer is a beast and now eight time Wimbledon Champion. Federer has also won nineteen Grand Slams. To...

Ted's Blog: Pro Sports Award Shows

I have noticed that all the major sports leagues have award shows now. If you won the MVP back in the day, you just won the MVP, but now when you win the awards they have an awards show to give them to you. I am a bit torn on this issue as I am not sure that we need an awards show to give these out...

Ted's Blog: KD and the Warriors

Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors just won the NBA title and people are not happy about it. I like Kevin Durant though! Number one: Because he is from PG County in Maryland where I grew up. I should mention Kevin grew up in a totally different part than I did, I grew up in PG, but in...
