Tim Tebow Booed at Yankee Stadium. So What?

April 16, 2012

Tim Tebow was booed at Yankee Stadium last night.  Predictably, some of my favorite Twitter people are reacting to the news as if the booing is further evidence of the decline of western civilization.  After all, Tebow stands up for what is right in the world and New York City is one of the most [...]

October 6, 2010

After the first game of the season, all-time great wide receiver Randy Moss said that this would be his last season with the New England Patriots.  This morning word came out that he was being traded to the Minnesota Vikings for a mere third round draft pick… today! As a Pats fan my emotions are [...]

Welcome to the NFL, Mark Sanchez!

October 5, 2009

The NFL is great for the sports drama and excitement it dishes out every week.  In keeping with that, New York Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez put in a very rookie-like performance yesterday in his 24-10 loss to the high-flying New Orleans Saints:  The New York media has been generally forgiving, though.  With all the [...]

Favre Signs with the Vikings

August 18, 2009

For the record, I believe that Brett Favre will be studied by sports psychologists for years to come, and undoubtedly be used as an example to future athletes thinking about retirement regarding what they should not display in public. Here he is again, back in the NFL.  Proving me wrong again while he’s at it.  Brand new [...]

Stop the Presses! Brett Favre Retires… Again

February 11, 2009

Where have I heard this before? That’s right, every single NFL post-season since Noah was trying to tick off “two emus” from his list!  Though this time I think it’s for real.  Maybe.  Thusly, I’m not getting all nostalgic.  I’ve already done that at the end of last season and what did that get me — Favre [...]

AFC East division rivals, the New York Jets and the New England Patriots met last night in Foxboro and the result was great football!  Check out the last play of regulation with 0:08 on the clock: Talk about a crazy ending!  Yet, the game was a tale of two halves:  the Pats weren’t playing offense in the [...]

Patriots’ Pyrrhic Victory

October 21, 2008

Last night’s 41-7 victory over the Denver Broncos was a relief to many New England Patriots fans who wanted to see if Matt Cassel had some real potential after five games.  Check.  The Pats fan was also interested in seeing how the Pats defense would handle the Broncos’ pass offense.  Check. But the price of these small [...]

Tom Brady is Hurt

September 7, 2008

I’m sure all of you with Tom Brady on your fantasy teams were hoping for more than one quarter out of the two-time Super Bowl MVP and the man who holds the single-season touchdown record for quarterbacks at 50, but football is a contact sport and people get hurt.  But why did it have to be [...]

Brett Favre and the New York Jets

August 7, 2008

Trading in the green-and-gold for a certainly less shiny green-and-white, the Green Bay Packers have ended all this pre-season Favre silliness by finally trading the future Hall-of-Famer to the New York Jets for a “conditional” fourth-round draft pick.  But, here are some other conditions from NFL.com: “The pick turns into a third-round selection if Favre plays [...]

Favre’s Impending Return

July 26, 2008

Is anyone else getting sick of all this?  I remember at the end the last NFL season, the great Brett Favre finally retired.  Everyone was nostalgic, some even perplexed since he obviously still had talent, even I here at AOR provided a glowing post as a career epitaph for a man who always looked like he was [...]
