Here’s the lesson I’m taking from what may be the dumbest thing to ever happen on morning radio: If you’re about to do something that feels awful, stop. Don’t do it. At any cost, stop it. Super insightful advice, this is not. “Don’t do things that feel bad” is something that’s programmed into each of
Big-time college football programs make a lot of money. They also need to convince star high school players to play for them. And since they can’t give money directly to those players (in theory), they end up spending money on other ridiculous things that will attract those players. This isn’t one of those things.
Pre-Show I like the idea of a live Pre-Show before the PPV, but just like the NFL, Pre-Shows are always better in theory. Renee Young hosted, and she was fine, but then Wade Barrett and Titus O’Neil started talking, and … they’re not good at that. At least not in this forum. Titus in particular

This is a merely a genial suggestion from me. I am requesting
The two most captivating figures in sports this weekend are Danica Patrick and Ronda Rousey. They are both female. This seems like a big deal. As much as social progress and gender equality are important to me, I can’t claim to be any kind of activist or role model in the promotion of women’s sports.
Do Everyone A Favor, Lakers, And Send Dwight Howard Somewhere Else Kobe Bryant, according to recent reports, wouldn’t mind if the Lakers shipped Dwight Howard out of town. I don’t buy these reports. It’s the phrase “wouldn’t mind” with which I quibble. I think it’s probably more accurate to say that Kobe “wouldn’t mind” if
