2019 New York Yankees Preview

Christopher Dinkins | February 27th, 2019

It’s a new year and we are here to get into the 2019 season for the New York Yankees. I had the Yankees winning the World Series last year, but they fell short to the eventual world champion Boston Red Sox in the Divisional round. But its a new year, and you live and learn. The Yankees went through injuries and a less than stellar year from one of its main power bats. But last year is over and its time to focus on this season and putting some heat on those guys in Massachusetts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers…2018 …another one bites the dust !!

Christopher Dinkins | February 9th, 2019

My Tampa Bay Buccaneers (that’s what I like to call em), had a season to inspire people in 2018. Inspire them to throw their televisions out the window!!! This season began with the unknown; how was Ryan Fitzpatrick going to respond with Jameis Winston being suspended for first three games of 2018. Well, he AND the rest of the Buccaneers responded with the greatest two-game stretch for Tampa Bay football since the end of the 2002 season, the NFC Championship which closed down Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia for good, and Super Bowl XXXVII versus Oakland.

VRBO Citrus Bowl Preview

Christopher Dinkins | January 1st, 2019

I knew there was a bowl game that I forgot about, it used to be known as the Tangerine Bowl, which was turned into the Florida Citrus Bowl in 1983. WOW !!!!…Where was I ?? Because I clearly remember the Capital One Bowl from 2001 until 2014, and then it was CompUSA, Ourhouse.com, and then it was sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings a couple of years ago. Overton’s sponsored the game in 2018, now it is sponsored by VRBO, a vacation rental marketplace and will be hereby known as (for now) the VRBO Citrus Bowl. And out of all of the non-College Football Playoff bowl games, this game has the highest payout per team at $4.25 million. That’s more money for the Big Ten and Southeast Conferences, Now that we got the identifications out of the way, it’s time to discuss this game.

Christopher Dinkins | December 31st, 2018

The second oldest bowl game in the country takes place in El Paso, Texas and is aptly named the Sun Bowl.  This bowl game has been played since 1935 along with the Sugar Bowl and Orange Bowl and is right behind the “granddaddy of ’em all” the Rose Bowl. The game has been hosted by the University of Texas at El Paso since 2011. Conference tie-ins are the Pacific-12 and Atlantic Coast Conference. This game has been sponsored by Hyundai since 2010 and has actually had numerous sponsors in the past.
