The stress of last Saturday’s 31-14 loss at Wisconsin must have been getting to Illinois Fighting Illini head football coach Tim Beckman. During the insufferable beat down, Beckman tried to settle his nerves by enjoying some smokeless tobacco on the sideline, and as so often happens these days, national TV cameras were right there to [...]

One out away from picking up a half game on the Cardinals, it looked like the Brewers were keeping the heat on in the race for the second Wild Card.  Three batters later, Milwaukee fans were convinced the season was over.  The 2-1 loss to the Reds was a brutal tease and put the Brewers [...]

It seemed as though the St. Louis Rams had turned a major corner in their home opener against the Washington Redskins. No longer the impotent doormat patsies of recent years, these Rams have fight in them. These Rams are if nothing else, entertaining to watch. Then the Rams went up to Chicago and returned to [...]
