The Sports Bank.net: Latest updates on the Baltimore Ravens

blog

The Baltimore Ravens rode Joe Flacco’s big arm and a strong defense led by the retiring and inspiring Ray Lewis to a magical Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. That was the 2012-2013 season. The 2013-2014 season was much different. Gone were future Hall-of-Famers Lewis and Ed Reed. Also gone was Flacco’s favorite …

shark-cage-300x198

2001 was deemed summer of sharks; at least according to Time magazine. I know, younger readers are like “what’s a magazine?” There were four or five shark attacks that year which got a lot of press.

TROY: HP Chromebook 14 Review

SJ

For the last week I’ve been playing around with this HP Chromebook 14 (which explains all the posts since last Monday).

Jeff Pearlman: Striking out on a softball

blog

This morning, I Tweeted out a softball. By “softball,” I mean the above image, which has been making its way around right-wing e-mail chains. It doesn’t take a bleeding-heart liberal to realize the disturbing and disgusting nature of the message. It’s lily whiteness vs. savage blackness. And if you don’t see that … if you …

blog

If Houston Rockets fans don’t think of what could have been, then they should be just fine. That takes a special kind of mind-warp, though. That’s some sort of cognitive dissonance at its absolute finest. For a while there, it appeared as if the Houston Rockets were well on their way toward fielding a starting …

Screen-Shot-2014-07-14-at-1.12.06-PM

A true professional. Just learned from this Richard Deitsch piece that Pam Oliver, the excellent, intelligent, informed Fox Sports NFL stalwart, will no longer serve as the network’s top sideline reporter. She has been replaced by Erin Andrews. Glub. Anyone who has worked in sports media long enough knows what this is. And it sucks. …
