Italian immigrant realizes the new American dream

Italian immigrant realizes the new American dream

You may have heard of Frank Sivero, an immigrant in the United States living the dream. Sivero, 62, came over from Italy when he was young and was raised in New York City. As a young adult he found work in the classic movie The Godfather Part II and soon became a regularly-working actor. His most notable [...]

Still Sleepwalking in Seattle

Still Sleepwalking in Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks are the defending Super Bowl champions, but something is amiss with the team that many expected to have a good shot at repeating this season. The Seahawks have stumbled out of the gate, and as a result they are a 3-3 team right now. They made a rare midseason trade of a high-priced [...]

Reader submission: Please grow a pair, Jay Gruden

Reader submission: Please grow a pair, Jay Gruden

Dear Jay Gruden: I’ve been a Redskins fan for 33 years. That’s 33 years more than you have been. I actually care about this team and feel we should use the weapons we’ve spent millions on acquiring. That being said, I believe you may want to take a trip to the eye doctor. You may [...]

My heart says Kansas City, but my head says San Fran

My heart says Kansas City, but my head says San Fran

Surprise! When I told you a few weeks ago I wouldn’t be surprised if Kansas City advanced to the World Series, I’m not sure I really even believed it. While a scenario where the Royals got hot and advanced didn’t seem all that far-fetched, if you told me the Royals would go 8-0 in the [...]

Can the Cowboys continue their unexpected success?

Can the Cowboys continue their unexpected success?

Anyone that is a regular reader of my column knows I am an unapologetic Dallas Cowboys fan. With that said I am also a realist–when the Cowboys are bad I am perfectly willing to say it and tell you why. This year even as a Cowboy fan I have been shocked by the team’s early [...]

Ebola doesn’t scare me, but the feds’ response to it does

Ebola doesn’t scare me, but the feds’ response to it does

The list of federal incompetence recently has been pretty staggering. Less than half of all Americans trust the United States government to handle problems according to a Gallup poll last month, and who can blame them? After the botched Obamacare rollout, the IRS scandal, the inability to secure our borders and constant partisan bickering, Americans [...]

1972 Dolphins qualify as flimsy all-time champions

1972 Dolphins qualify as flimsy all-time champions

Last weekend when Patriots beat the Bengals, the NFL said goodbye to its last undefeated team this year in an event we seem to be marking off the football calendar earlier and earlier each season. Parity has come to the league based on a number of factors, and with that parity it becomes less and [...]

Did ‘Gone Girl’ just become the favorite for Best Picture?

Did ‘Gone Girl’ just become the favorite for Best Picture?

The stuff Ben Affleck touched a few years ago used to turn to crap. Now it seems to turn to Oscar gold. Audiences loved Gone Girl this weekend. While its $38 million figure may not seem all that impressive, it was somehow acclaimed director David Fincher’s best opening ever. That may seem strange considering Fincher [...]

Has the Autumn Wind abandoned Raider Nation?

Has the Autumn Wind abandoned Raider Nation?

The Autumn Wind is a pirate Blustering in from sea, With a rollocking song, he sweeps along, Swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten. He wears a hooded sash, With a silver hat about his head, And a bristling black mustache. He growls as he storms the country, A villain big and bold. And the [...]

Wake up! MLB’s magnificent postseason is finally here!

Wake up! MLB’s magnificent postseason is finally here!

Finally! It takes so long to get through the MLB season. If you are not in a city fighting for a Wild Card berth late, baseball in August and September really can take a backseat to the NFL. Not anymore. We did a pretty good job predicting the regular season I suppose, at least in the NL. [...]
