(Wipes the figurative dust off this blog)

I did a Google image search for "NFL Loser" and, of course, this came up.

Hi! It’s me. I’ve been watching sports and not sharing my thoughts on it. For the past three NFL seasons, I’ve run suicide pools. These are great for people who want to care about games they otherwise wouldn’t/be more involved in football viewing, but not as involved as a fantasy team requires.

This season, I’m running the pool with a twist… instead of picking a team to win each week, you pick a team to lose each week.

Seeking an Alternative Fantasy Football

December 11, 2013

Superbowl

February 4, 2009

While the country suffers from a recession, did the Superbowl suffer? I say “no,” and I was a business major in college. Financial disappointments of the Superbowl are not from the recession, but from unrealistic expectations.

Ticket prices for Superbowl XLIII were down twenty percent from last year. This makes sense considering last year two major market teams, one undefeated and one hot since a dramatic Week 17 loss to the aforementioned team, drew higher ticket prices then a game with one major market team and one unloved franchise.
