Today was my one and only down-time day to hang out and watch football games from start to finish and the games were really disappointing. Who would have though that the VA Tech/Cincinnati Orange Bowl would be the best game of the day? Too bad that by the time this game was on, I was burned out on football. The Big Ten is not showing well, notching just one win so far (thanks Iowa!) ESPN is scroll...

Theater Review

What's the difference between Vince Lombardi and a pit bull? A necktie. Bada-bum. Okay, the joke is starting to get stale, but the new play about former Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi is definitely NOT.

I've never before been less excited for a football season. That's not to say that I'm not excited, I'm just still in full-on baseball mode and therefore have not at all switched over into "Is it football season, yet?" mode. I have my fantasy draft tonight and it's been so far from my mind I'm a little concerned...That being said, color me shocked when I realized the Badgers play this weekend. So b...

Jim Cryns on Sports

If you heard a loud crinkling noise during the Packers intra-squad scrimmage recently, that was probably me crawling out of my skin.

For those who may not have heard, over the past few weeks there has been some kind of controversy going on between the Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre, one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history. It seems that Favre, who led the Packers to a stunning 13-3 record last year and came within a game of taking the team to the Super Bowl, was threatening to come back to try to do it again. Ordinarily, any professional football team would be overjoyed to have a great quarterback decide not to retire and instead attempt to lead them to another championship. But in the case of the Green Bay Packers, it messed up all their plans.
