College Football Playoff… This Is It

Jalen Hurts, Jake Browning, Deshaun Watson, and JT Barrett lead their respective teams into battle today. This is the day college football fans have been waiting for. 128 teams fought for the opportunity, but only four remain. Alabama (-14) vs Washington; 51 The Crimson Tide have been unbeatable this year and rolled through the competition (see what I did there?). Jalen Hurts has had his turnover problems this year, which should scare the Alabama faithful. Where this Alabama team stands out, like usual, is in the trenches. The physicality of the defensive and offensive lines is unmatched. Hurts has added Continue reading College Football Playoff… This Is It

Just End The Season: But what about next season?

We are all Team Big Blue over here at AVS but that shouldn’t stop us talking about New Jersey Team B.  The Jets have really helped us on in our Homer picks each week!  Week 17 is meaningless for both New York teams but for very different reasons, the Giants will most likely be resting guys as the prepare for their Wild Card opponent and the Jets will just be wishing the game will be over quickly and the offseason can start.  But the offseason hasn’t been too kind either for Gang Green.  They draft poorly and prioritize FA incorrectly, Continue reading Just End The Season: But what about next season?

What Goalie Controversy?!

The Rangers do not have a goalie controversy, let’s get that out of the way now.  What they do have is two very talented goalies playing at a high level of hockey.  This sounds like a good thing to me.  Antti Raanta is getting the start tonight vs the Stanley Cup Champ Penguins.  Over the past few weeks some of the hockey world thinks that Lundqvist’s benching is a sign of concern for the Blueshirts and for the King’s future in NY.  I take this the complete opposite ways.  Lets take a quick look at the easy stats: King Henrik Continue reading What Goalie Controversy?!

Pop Culture: Coming Soon to the Movies

The Fate of the Furious This should be no shocker but I am a massive Fast and Furious fan! Since day one this franchise has been special to me and all jokes aside they actually are good movies.  The original is classic, so many good underrated quotes, and while 2-4 aren’t Oscar worthy 5-7 were awesome action movies, no question!  Fast 8 will have a different tone without Paul Walker (RIP) but I expect more of the same from the rest of the gang.  This small LA family has taken the world by storm the past few years with many Continue reading Pop Culture: Coming Soon to the Movies
