Steven LeBron Radio (Ep. 63): Discussions About CBA’s And Subpar Internet Connections

I can’t remember the last time I wrote something here at The Sports Fan Journal. I do know that since the last time I appeared on here, I got married in Hawaii, and finally finished self-publishing my first book (ohh, link to the online store in the first paragraph, my job is done here. The rest...

Steven LeBron Radio (Ep. 62): The Gift That Keeps On Giving (Not Like Herpes, Though)

Being that Alex Wong is a demigod of many talents – published writer being one – when the man calls and humbles requests your presence on his critically acclaimed Steven LeBron podcast, you know what you do? Jump. That’s what the hell you do. And that’s exactly what Ed and yours...

The Definitive 2013 Jacksonville Jaguars Prop Bet Guide

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a terrible football team this season. This much we know. They haven’t scored a touchdown at home yet this season, which is kind of okay until you realize we’re heading towards the halfway mark of the season. But when a team is bad, maybe historically bad, we...

Things You Need To Listen To: Steven LeBron Vs. Grantland’s Jonathan Abrams

I think everyone who is familiar with Grantland’s Jonathan Abrams has their favorite story. While some remember the epic Oral History he did on the 1980′s Houston Rockets and the reflections he’s done on players like Tracy McGrady, Stephen Jackson and Korleone Young, my favorite will...

NFL Week 5 Winners And Losers: Romo Romo Romo Edition

“Cowboys QB Tony Romo throws 506 yards in loss to Broncos” is probably the most Romo of all Romo headlines. Just 48 yards away from tying the all-time NFL record for passing yards in a game and having kept pace with Peyton Manning and the record-setting Broncos for four quarters, Romo got...

The NBA Store Online Sale Purchasing Guide

When I went to New York a few months ago, I went to the NBA Store and considered buying an Andrew Bynum Philadelphia 76ers jersey because how often do you get a chance to own a jersey of a player on a team that he never played a single game for? Unfortunately, this was before Bynum signed with the Cavaliers...

NFL Week 3 Winners And Losers: The One-Liner Edition

This is my fifth attempt at writing this column. In the first one, I tried to write about Trent Richardson. The second and third were attempts at ranking the teams while making a bunch of references to Breaking Bad. The fourth was an empty WordPress box. I then opened my e-mail to tell editor-in-chief...

NFL Week 2 Winners And Losers: The Single Confetti In Buffalo Edition

In football at least, Buffalo is the place where dreams go to die. Some don’t even let their imaginations run too wild at this point. As with any team that’s suffered years, decades or even centuries of misery, there are arbitrary starting points for that pain, signature losses and heartbreaks...

NFL Week 1 Winners And Losers: Peyton Throws 7 Touchdowns Edition

There was a lot of symmetry in the season opener on Thursday between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos. First, via Bruce Arthur, last year’s Super Bowl blackout delay lasted 34 minutes, while Thursday’s lightning delay was, well, 34 minutes. When Peyton Manning took the field —...

The NFL’s Concussion Settlement: A Problem That Remains Without Too Many Answers

The NFL’s $765 million settlement of concussion lawsuits is, on the surface, a monetary conclusion that will compensate a lot of former players and their families for physical damages that have arisen as a result of the game of football. Beyond that, it’s just another reminder that the concussion...

Because This 1991 Sports Illustrated Article Basically Told The Future Of Sports

In the July 22, 1991, issue of Sports Illustrated, William Oscar Johnson looked at how the sports world would look a decade later in 2001. Using a fictional character named Ulysses S. Spectator, Johnson crafted a piece that described the world where the ozone layer is a bit more depleted and the resulting...

My eBay Adventures: Mase, R. Kelly And A Whole Lot Of Sports In Between

This is how it starts. I go on Tumblr, check out Oakley and Allen, it leads me to For All To Envy where I start browsing the hip-hop section and see this Mase t-shirt for $100. I think about it for a second, actually more than that, enough time to actually debate whether it’s worth shelling out...

Hi everyone, this is Larry David here. I’m the new head coach of your favorite football team, and I’m here to tell you how, why and all your other pressing questions. Now this is unusual for me, because while my pal Seinfeld is in effect producing his own sitcom under the guise of a web...

Important: Adam Jones’ Popeyes Cake Is Not The Best

Last week, Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles got a Popeyes cake for his birthday, and sure enough, I’ve decided to associate myself with Popeyes, several people alerted me to this cake via Facebook, Twitter and email, including the editor-in-chief of this site. This was cool and all, but when...

The Comedy Of Brian Cashman Vs. Alex Rodriguez

Okay. First off, before any other words are spilled onto this WordPress box I’m writing in, I think we need to all agree on one thing: This Alex Rodriguez versus Brian Cashman and the Yankees organization subplot is absolutely hilarious. I say this because there are no livelihoods at stake. When...

A New Generation Of Baseball Fans In Toronto

Two years ago, the Jays were 25th in the league in average attendance, coming in at 22,445 fans per game. Last season, it increased to 25,921 per...

The Big Miss: A Series Of Sporting Events I Missed For Various Reasons

Earlier this year, Benjamin Hochman of The Denver Post wrote an article titled “Legendary sporting events can leave tail of wouldas, couldas, shouldas” in which he compiled a bunch of stories of people who gave up tickets or missed a classic game for various reasons. It made me think about...

The Week That Was In All Things Dwight Howard

(photo via @BlameSanjay) It’s over. It’s finally over. Last Friday at around 6 p.m. EST, having just started digging in to a three-piece meal from Popeyes (what up KD, I’m keeping it trill like you), I had to use a couple of greasy fingers to scroll Tweetdeck as news started rolling...

Aaron Hernandez And The Things We’ll Never Know About Athletes

For me, the strangest part about finding out another side to an athlete you follow is the part where you go back and scour through interview clips and read articles looking for clues that make sense after the fact, to layer in the additional context that comes with new information. In the past couple...
