Professional Tailgating: Vacation Style

While there was no real tailgating, the head member of the Only Time Will Tell tailgating crew was in Boston doing the vacation thing and during his trip Joe Wolfs Vertical Jump also checked out Fenway Park.
It's not the greatest looking place in Major League Baseball but its home for many

Fenway never had that many banners
Fenway has been around a really long time

Everyone is hung up on the World Series win even the parking lots

Hey even Dice-K has a street sign

Even the sidewalks sing the praises of the Red Sox

Rest in Peace

The time has come to say good bye to an old friend, the Orange Bowl. The venue has been a great gritty home for the U for decades and now on Saturday, when the 'Canes leave the field Saturday for the final time, the sun will set on college football at the Orange Bowl and it will be sad day.

The field at the OB has been home to some of the best players in college football history from Ed Reed and Ray Lewis to Kenny Phillips. Here is hoping that the Dolphins Stadium will see the same great players that Orange Bowl has.

CBS keeps taking steps backwards

ESPN has the market cornered on hot sideline reports, with Erin Andrews, but another network keeps loosing ground in the race for the hottest sideline reporters. CBS started with Jill Arrington then she left and then they hired Tracy Wolfson, which is a clear step down.

Here is photo proof:

As you see a picture is worth a 1,000 words and these photos say Jill Arrington is a very good sideline reporter.

It's only a matter of time before the Whites are back

For the last couple of years there has been one team that has been missing from the Barclay's Premier League, Leeds United. While the league continues to make money hand over foot, the league lacks Leeds United and their passionate fans.

Over the course off the last couple of years financial issues have forced the destruction of a side that made the 2001 semi-finals of the Champions League and now they find themselves in League One playing the likes of Carlisle United, Port Vale, and Yeovil Town. The financial issues lead to Leeds starting the season with a 15 point penalty, but so far they are the only undefeated team in League One. At this rate they should make the playoffs and hopefully return to the Coca-Cola Championship next year and then move quickly to return the top flight of English Football.

The ""Whites'' have won three league titles during their history and have had a roster that features some of the best players in England:
  • Rio Ferdinand
  • Gordon Strachan
  • Lee Bowyer
  • Eric Cantona (pictured right)
  • Scott Carson
  • Robbie Fowler
  • Robbie Keane
  • Aaron Lennon
  • James Milner
  • Jermaine Pennant
  • Paul Robinson
  • Alan Smith
  • Mark Viduka
  • Jonathan Woodgate
  • Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink
  • Jack Charlton
With the list of former players that they have, its a ashamed that people like Peter Ridsdale and Ken Bates have destroyed one of the great clubs in English soccer.
