It was a moment that I hope to wipe clean from my memory someday, but one I’ll never forget. One of those “where were you when...?” type events. As I flipped to CNN, I saw a chilling cloud of smoke rise from streets I knew all too well. Multiple bombs had gone off at the finish line of the Boston... Read more »

As a Bills fan, I have one, overwhelming fear about the 2013 season. No it’s not that Bills may lose every single game they play. Nor is it that the Bills may perform so poorly that they may move out of Buffalo. My crippling fear about the Bills’ year in 2013 is that they may draft Manti Te’o.You... Read more »

The role that sports should play in our society has suddenly become a hot topic in the media. In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, the New York Knicks lit up Madison Square Garden in an emotional victory over the villainous Miami Heat. At that moment in time,... Read more »

It is an unwritten rule of fantasy football that one may have a little something-something on the side with players who aren’t from his or her favorite team.

Friday is game day. And game day usually entails a meal at Panda Express. But a few weeks ago it was different. That game day meal was more special than the rest. I’m waiting in line with some other Panda goers and lo and behold, in walks Steve Young! Previously, I detailed... Read more »

I’ve had 49ers season tickets my entire life. From the age of five on, I have spent countless fall Sunday afternoons sitting on a hard orange seat behind Big Mike. Big Mike and his son are at every game. Always. Rain or shine, they show up at Candlestick Park—woops, Monster Park—and turn into... Read more »

I had to do it. They said I could relinquish the reins after last issue, and give up my spot on the last page, but I wanted the chance to pull out me ol’ quill and ink for the Viking one last time. And when I say that, “after this I’m done”, I mean it in the literal sense, and not the way Brett... Read more »

Seriously guys, the bandwagon will not be able to move if anyone else gets on. This is the greatest time of year for sports, hands down. Not only is there 40+ hours of football airing from Saturday morning to Sunday night, but the World Series has just finished, while the NHL and NBA seasons are only... Read more »

If you take close look at the helmet of a member of the 2010 Palo Alto Vikings football team, you will get a glimpse into the life of a warrior who by day hammers out essays and math worksheets, and by night hammers opposing players to the turf.
