Yesterday, we saw the Chiefs defeat the Broncos in overtime, a crushing defeat for Denver. It was only last year that the Broncos won the Super Bowl, so why haven’t they been doing well? A lot of it has to do with the Broncos losing Peyton Manning to retirement.

That is a long time for anything to happen, much less an annual event. But the Cubs, for the first time in 108 years, won the World Series against the Cleveland Indians, who also haven’t won the World series in a long time.

But while those were very good games, the game that I thought was the closest, most exciting, and overall most interesting to watch was Continue reading The Best Football Game of Week 5→
Last week, we talked about baseball players doing stupid things in reaction to calls that they disagreed with. In football, the bulk of the stupid things that they do is through celebrations. Let’s take a look at the three most memorable (in my opinion) stupid celebrations.
