Holly Holm Knocks Out Ronda Rousey in Huge UFC Upset

A brutal beat down, Holm kept beating her to the punch. Can't understand why Rousey tried to go toe to toe with her instead of dancing around like she normally does. Holm has been the womens champion in her weight class in both boxing and kickboxing. Going to be an interesting rematch.

Matthew Stafford: the $53m mistake costing the Detroit Lions dearly

Mitchell the biggest player mistake and yes Matt Millen the biggest Lion mistake of all time. Can't stand seeing Millen on TV acting like he knows something about football.

Matthew Stafford: the $53m mistake costing the Detroit Lions dearly

Oh by the way, no player will ever replace Scott Mitchell as the Lions biggest mistake and to compare Stafford to Mitchell is just wrong.

Matthew Stafford: the $53m mistake costing the Detroit Lions dearly

As a die hard Lions fan for sixty years I cannot blame the terrible Lions offense solely on Stafford, the Lions have had no running game since Barry Sanders and until last year a defense that couldn't stop anyone. Since Stafford became a Lion they could score (2011 4th highest in the NFL) until last year when the defense won games. The only thing that changed with the offense the last two years was the coaching staff with Lombardi destroying the offense. No Stafford isn't a superstar but Tom Brady couldn't help the Lions with Lombardi running the offense. My beloved Lions will continue to lose but I won't put the blame on Stafford alone, Lombardi has to go.

Surprise military reunions at NFL games reach peak Bullsh*t

Maybe they are trying to make up for the rotten way we were treated when we came home in the Vietnam era. What should of been one of the happiest days of my life turned out to be by far the worst day of my life, I hid from the public until my hair grew out. Sorry. I would rather see them go overboard welcoming soldiers home then see even one go through the treatment we went through when we came home. Semper Fi.

@ jagsnumberone " I'm proving that less knowledge is, in fact, better when picking these"

This CFL is insane, it's like every team is bi-polar.

Ottawa by 3 (guess I want excitement)

B.C. by 10. Toronto took Babcock so all teams in Toronto must lose. (even though Bashill will kick start the next great Red Wings dynasty, it's the principal of it)

Edmonton by 10 ( they can't lose to Winnipeg at home can they?)

Hamilton by 14 (The Roughriders are my all time favorite CFL team but it ain't happening this year.)

These are my picks and I stand by them, NO Costanza for me!!!!

A tie for the win is a lot better then where I usually end up in these things. I think because the Pistons weren't in the playoffs there were no wishful thinking in my picks. Thanks to Ufez Jones for doing this.

Golden State Exposes Cleveland in Game 4 Rout

Golden State will dominate the rest of the games but the
sad part is that no matter what super human effort LeBron James
puts out the media will blame him for losing the title. Micheal Jordon
couldn't win the title by himself, but back in those days the media
was intelligent enough to know that one super player doesn't make
a championship winning team. If you are as old as dirt as I am you will remember
in early playoff games teams playing against the Bulls would let
Jordon have his way and just stop everyone else. I think James is
one of the best players ever but until he gets a couple of good players around him Cleveland will not get the big prize.
