Fix yo bracket, fool!!!

Before I get started, I have to remind you to sign up for the 2nd-annual BASG March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament Pool. Or to shorten it up a little, “Chocolate

Mike Leach isn’t a fan of the born-agains

The good-ol’ boys at Texas Tech are probably doing a boot-scoot boogie over the Mike Leach videos that orangebloods.com bestowed to the world this morning, uncensored videos that show the

In sports, pessimism is your friend

One of my main philosophies in life is “don’t get your hopes up.” And I am absolutely maniacal in my attempts to keep my hopes at subpar levels. For instance,

Thank God for mock drafts

The Warriors are basketball Nyquil

The inflatable mattress was set up in prime position in the living room yesterday evening, directly in front of the TV. Me: wearing pajama-like clothing and thick socks, underneath two

The Olympics soap opera rolls on…

To truly enjoy the Vancouver Winter Olympics is to enjoy the imperfections. Sort of like walking to work in San Francisco. The weather isn’t always the best, and sometimes you

2009-10 Warriors: Worst Warriors Ever?

Hingis, Monta and coaches’ sons that look alike

You can have Anna Kournikova, I’ve always been a Martina Hingis fan. It’s not that I have a thing for big foreheads — Tyra Banks is my least favorite non-criminal

Golden State Wu-Warriors

A couple days ago, David commented on the Ray Allen/Amare Stoudemire/Monta Ellis post that perhaps the RZA could take over as head coach of the Warriors, which led to a

Ben Sheets goes to … the Oakland A’s?!?!?!

I’ll say this for Billy Beane: nobody in the last decade has cornered the market on ridiculously talented pitchers that may or may not be made of low-grade porcelain. Rich

Recycled Ray Allen and Amare rumors — things could be worse

In one of my many “the Warriors should get something for Monta Ellis while they can” posts I’ve written over the last six months, I threw out the idea that

Monta Ellis hurts his other ankle

The Warriors can’t win for losing…players. Every game it’s another guy grabbing his ankle and hobbling off the floor, and last night it was the ironman. Monta Ellis hurt his

Stephen Curry and the jaded Warrior fan

Frustration levels surrounding the Golden State Warriors in their home region have never been higher. Just check out what people are saying about Stephen Curry. Chris Cohan (the fake one,

With his warmups around his ankles…

Watching Corey Maggette over the last month brings to mind the funniest story ever created by The Onion’s sports section. I can’t go into the specifics here… Wait, yes I

Wanna know why the Warriors can’t stay healthy?

I’m a former member of the Golden State Warriors organization. No, I’m not joking. I even have the business cards to prove it. In one of the more short-sighted decisions
