Week 11 of the NFL season started with a bang (like, a literal bang, as in someone’s helmet going bang), but that was rather quickly overshadowed by things like Lamar Jackson being Lamar Jackson, Philip Rivers’ terrible accuracy issues, the 49ers almost losing to Kyler Murray and the Cardinals, and the Patriots being carried by their defense to a...
Eighteen million acres burned. One billion animals dead. Cities and towns overwhelmed by smoke and flame. This is just a glimpse into the havoc currently being wreaked by Australia's bushfire season. Australia currently faces a wildfire system that is, by most metrics, the most extreme and disastrous it has ever faced. Since summer arrived in the Southern Hemisphere in late...
Week 1 of the NFL is always a special time, for both me and millions of Americans around the country who have tuned into their TVs and are screaming at them five minutes in. However, the first real week of the National Football League is, in my opinion, the best time of the year for everyone who considers football...

Limited Offense The Cowboys faced a solid Saints' defense, which mostly prevented any big plays from the Cowboys'...
Every generation of people in America has faced an event that dramatically changed their world. Baby Boomers faced the Civil Rights movement, the JFK assassination, and the Cold War. Generation X faced Watergate, the Vietnam War, and a continuing struggle for Civil Rights. Millennials faced the Great Recession and 9/11. So far, Generation Z (Zoomers) has not had an...
It's not every game that you can throw 3 interceptions against a respectable team and still have a chance of winning. It's also odd to have 200 more total yards than the other team and still lose by double digits. It was a weird week for the Cowboys. They suffered their second defeat in a row in a 24-34...
