Looking at the NFL’s 2-0 Teams Geoff Magliocchetti 14 hrs ago With nearly two weeks of the NFL football in the books in 2019, the 1972 Miami Dolphins only have to wait out nine teams before commending their infamous champagne toast.

"You are what your record says you are." quipped the famous football coach known as "The Big Tuna." Call us crazy, but we're more likely to go with Parcells over the public.

Bettor uses ‘points betting’ in Ravens-Dolphins game, turns $30,000 into $600,000 Charles Curtis 6 hrs ago It seemed obvious to just about everybody that the tanking Miami Dolphins were going to lose to the Baltimore Ravens. It even seemed obvious that the visiting Ravens with Lamar Jackson at the helm would cover a 7-point spread. But that brings us to a question: How much would you be willing to bet that the Ravens would cover AND would blow that spread out of the water? We have an answer of sorts. Per Action Network, a bettor took $30,000 and put down on the Ravens at PointsBet. But there was a catch: That gambler used a specific product called "Points Betting": ...

They like to claim that theirs is the most important movement, as they seek to end alleged injustices and violence against black men. They also truly believe, in their heart of hearts, that they are 100 percent, emphatically right. So what does an anthem kneeler do when another NFL star, perhaps one whose more conservative and Christian beliefs fly ...

My last three years in high school, I was in Northern Virginia. I hung out at Springfield Mall and Wakefield Recreation Center. Though I had lame handles and an erratic shot, I still managed to get into pickup games, and each time I hoisted up a brick, my buddy, Kelvin Nash, would holler, “Riceman!” I was supposed to fill it up, you see, but rarely did. Son of a lawyer, Kelvin is now a real estate agent in Dallas. He married his college sweetheart, with whom he lost his virginity. So much for black sexual precocity. I worked at McDonald’s. After I got a Mustang II, I ventured further afield. I’d go to DC to scrutinize the National Gallery and Hirschhorn, and snoop ...
