It’s fourth and inches, with the game clock winding down twenty to seventeen. Your team is up by three and every part of your body is screaming “Win!” and in that split second, the snap. It’s a run, your team lined up for pass. He breaks one tackle, two, three, and the clock is running down. From ten to zero, from the fifteen to the goal line, your team’s playoff hopes were crushed. The 16 games of blood, sweat, and tears all seemingly down the drain. Why? By one simple error in judgment, the game clock More >

The Mets have made some bad decisions over the years. They signed Jason Bay to a 66 million dollar contract, but received almost no production from him. They spent a ton of money on Oliver Perez, only to watch him flounder as a starter and a reliever before being let go early. Neither of these awful decisions, even trading franchise icon Tom Seaver, can top Dec. 10, 1971 when the New York Mets dealt pitcher Nolan Ryan and three others to the California Angels in exchange for shortstop/third baseman Jim Fregosi.
In hindsight, it was one More >

Boston fought their way through a nerve-racking series against the Maple Leafs, potentially embarrassed Lundqvist and the Rangers, and shocked everyone by sweeping the top seeded Penguins.
The Chicago Blackhawks went though the Wild, overtime with the Wings with kudos to Brent Seabrook, and off of Patrick Kane’s hat trick, eliminated the defending Stanley Cup champions in the LA Kings, and moved to the finals.

This season has already shown some impressive and promising talents when it comes to pitching in the MLB. Both Annibal Sanchez and Yu Darvish came so amazingly close at achieving greatness, and while Sanchez’s game would have been a no hitter, it is still an admirable feat that only a select few have achieved. And yet after watching these two players collapse at the last second, I feel disgusted. There is a feeling in the back of my head that is filling with rage and sickness, a chilling feeling that is hard to describe. The weird More >

It has been quite a bit of time since I last penned an article for Sports Card Forum. A lot has changed for me during the last year. My family moved into our dream home north of Niagara Falls, NY. It has a ton to offer, outdoor concerts during the summer months galore, festivals, country living and one of the best school districts in Western New York, just in time for Olivia to start kindergarten in the fall. It did come with a price.
That price was having to own 2 houses for nearly 8 months. This More >

As fellow card collectors, I’m sure you guys have been in the same situation that I’m in regularly. People asking: “Why do you want to pay that much money for a card? It’s just a piece of cardboard.” I shake my head and laugh at those people, and even my best friends don’t understand why I collect hockey cards. I’m not surprised, though. Living in a small, non-hockey crazy country like Denmark isn’t exactly a hotbed for hockey like Toronto or Montreal, but it’s becoming a top 3 sport here. So why are people – who More >
