Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved Illinois athletics AND contrary to how I write about our athletic programs, I still do. Also before you ask, yes, that is me (as well as my Dad and Brother) at an Illinois football game, circa 2008… when Illinois was actually watchable… shoutout the GOAT ‘Juice’ Williams. This […]Read more "19 Things You Know if You’re an Illini Sports Fan"
Another season of Illini football is upon us and our coach is somehow not on the hot seat after going 3-9 last year. I don’t know what Ball State is even good at, but I’m pretty confident it’s not football. Illinois wipes the floor with the Cardinals in Week 1.Read more "Illini Football Preview + Week 1: Illinois v. Ball State"
CR7 got a 5 match ban today for pushing a ref in an El Clasico meeting that literally means nothing. Why do people even look up to this guy? All he does it tan (probably not naturally), makes fucktons of money posting on social media, has tons of kids, buys inconceivable amounts of supercars and sometimes plays soccer.Read more "Daily Blog #51: CR7 is a Piece of Shit, Suspended 5 Games"
Roberto Aguayo is no scrub, but at this point, with some practice, I think I could make more extra points than him (out of like, 100).Read more "Daily Blog #51: The Bears are OUT HERE Combing the Waver Wire… For Kickers"

Arsenal v. Leicester City: What a fucking shitshow. I’d be lying if I said I’ve started second guessing my Champions pick, but the XI was basically scrubs so imma reuse a Cubs line and say #WeAreGoodRead more "Daily Blog #49: Fuck The Haters, Arsenal Are Top Of The League"
I love the Soccer, I love Arsenal, and I love the Premier League. It’s once again the best time of the year, when I’m not bitching about Arsene Wenger, injuries, lack of spending, shitty quality of play, etc. COYG forever though I guess.Read more "Daily Blog #48: The Premier League is BACK."
RIP Vince Wilfork the Defensive Tackle, but Big Vince is going to make one hell of a salesman for Kingsford. Not that they need it, I’m sure their margins and market share are ridiculous already, but their creative is gold so I couldn’t care less.Read more "Daily Blog #47: Big Vince Wilfork Retires… via a Sponsored Ad on Twitter"
Arsenal won silverware! Don’t get your hopes up, it’s just the Community Shield, but still, at least we don’t have to deal with Robbie, Troopz, and a bunch of other pissed off randos ranting about how Arsene Wenger is cancer to the club and should die.Read more "Daily Blog #46: Arsenal Actually Win Something… The Community Shield"
Track and Field has never really made sense to me. If it’s your thing, watching sweaty men run for under a minute and then not again (or at least not caring) for another 4 years, be my guest, but personally, I think it’s stupid.Read more "Daily Blog #45: Usain Bolt Places 3rd in “Last Race”"

LaVar just got fucking melted by Shaq and I’m really hoping he just chooses to ignore it and move on with his life. However, that would be too simple, and we all know that won’t happen.Read more "Wake Up To: Shaq v. LaVar, the Savior of Modern-Day Basketball"
It’s well noted that I don’t like Steve Bartman. I don’t condone any of the crazy shit thats happened to him and his family since 2003, but I still don’t think he deserves a Cubs World Series ring for being nothing but a distraction for 13 years.Read more "Daily Blog #41: The Cubs Gave Bartman a WS Ring… Wait What?"

At times, I hate summer, and it’s not even about all the heat and the sweat. Bluntly, I like baseball, but even I can’t watch it/news about it 24/7. Substitutions like scrub ball tourneys, billiards, and bags are pathetic.Read more "Daily Blog #32: Fuck ESPN"
What a guy. Even in the most expensive state (to live in), $42.5 mil/year is a big chunk of change.
