T Dog’s Four Pack – Olympic sized fun

A midweek edition of T Dog’s Four Pack: What’s not – and what’s not: Worthy of Gold Olympic hockey.

T Dog’s Four Pack – A long time coming

Been awhile since a T Dog’s Four pack was published… so, let’s create one. Now! What’s Hot: The New Orleans Saints. …and in fact, the city of New Orleans and the entire state of Louisiana.

Breaking News: Matt Millen, you still suck

Remember a few days ago when I said Chicago media is one big freak show? Well, I think Detroit may have us beat… WDIV in Detroit ran a crawl during NBC’s Super Bowl pre-game coverage when former Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen appeared on-screen and the station ran a crawl ripping into him stating: “Matt Millen was president of the […]
