It seems everything these days is in danger of being rendered useless by the internet. The mighty blue Blockbuster fell to Netflix. Bookstores were chewed up and spit out by Amazon.

Despite a couple of good swings, the Miami Herald's Dan Le Batard pretty much failed to connect with reality in his column last Sunday, a 1,000 word humble-brag tricked out as a nostalgia job. The basic thesis here moans that the Heat's 2012-13 season is a lot less "fun" now that the entire sporti ... More >>

It started around Presidents' Day. ESPN has been picking the "Mt. Rushmore of Sports" in every state, then choosing the top five states. This week, it decided Illinois had the best mountain, with Michael Jordan, Ernie Banks, Walter Payton, and Mike Ditka. Hard to argue those guys aren't Da Best. Flo ... More >>
