The Coin Toss: NFL Week 7

Welcome to The Coin Toss, where I make bold predictions about your favorite professional sports. Last week’s predictions went one-for-three. I had the Patriots and Chiefs scoring at least 60 points combined, and the two teams came through with 83 total points. I had the Titans beating the Ravens, which did not work out as the […]

The Coin Toss: NFL Week 5

Welcome to The Coin Toss, where I make bold predictions about your favorite professional sports. First a recap of last week. I had the Browns over the Raiders, but Oakland took that game by three in overtime. I correctly picked the Texans over the Colts in Indianapolis. I also predicted a bounce-back game from Tom […]

Weidner’s Words: Pettiness in the NBA

With all the stories coming out on a daily basis covering NBA injuries, potential trades and drama, you’d find it hard to believe that the NBA season still hasn’t even begun. It’s felt that way for nearly the entire summer, to be honest, as the NBA continues to prove why it’s the best sports league […]

The Coin Toss: NFL Week 4

Welcome to The Coin Toss, where I make bold predictions about your favorite professional sports. To quickly recap last week’s predictions: I had the Jets beating the Browns, Blake Bortles as a top ten fantasy quarterback again and the Chargers upsetting the Rams. None of those came true! This will happen some weeks; these are bold […]

The Anti-Bostonian: The case against romanticizing Tom’s battle with Father Time

“Tom vs. Time” is reaching an untimely pinnacle for Patriots fans. As in, is it time to worry about Tom … for good … like really start sounding the alarm … and realizing there’s no backup plan. Uh oh. Brady’s arm unremarkably expired on a fourth quarter heave to Phillip Dorsett in the dying embers […]

Postgame Press: Boo to booing

Two weeks ago, the Philadelphia Eagles took the field for the first time since they won their first Super Bowl ever. In the first half, they had 68 yards of offense and 66 penalty yards. The team kneeled to end the half and headed into the locker rooms. That is when the fans started booing. […]

Postgame Press: Fan(tasy)hood

Being a fan means you get to be a part of an amazing community of people with whom you have a bond as soon as you see them at the game or on the street wearing a jersey. I see someone with my team’s hat and immediately feel a sense of kinship. But team allegiances […]

Weidner’s Words: Weeding out the opiates

A few weeks ago, on April 20, people across the country participated in what has become known as the “weed holiday.” On the same day, Bleacher Report released several videos featuring former NBA and NFL players discussing their use of marijuana and use throughout those leagues, as they were aware of it. Athletes like Kenyon Martin, […]

Weidner’s Words: A players’ league

The NFL Scouting Combine took place over the past week, where most of the draft locks and hopefuls hope to impress teams with their athleticism and skill. Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin stole the show with the fastest 40-yard dash time for a linebacker in more than a decade, running it in 4.38 seconds. Behind all the […]
