Tigers Walk-Off!

[Snarf Remix] Damn it feels good to hit a walk-off Feedin’ the crowd and helpin out wit they stress Although it was bottom of the 9th Now we’re walking off da field Damn it feels good to hit a walk-off I mean a score that you don’t really know Ridin’ around town busy with some […]

Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode

I actually got to see Chuck Berry and Little Richard as a kid in concert together. I was a huge fan of Little Richard, maybe the first person I ever listened to because, I believe, of our dad showing us his music (and maybe from King Ralph, too). And I got up and danced up […]

Little Richard – Ready Teddy

Wiz Khalifa – See You Again ft. Charlie Puth

After 14 weeks atop the Billboard Charts, this tribute to Paul Walker has replaced Uptown Funk (the second longest tenure of all time). It’s a worthy #1. RIP.

Journalism’s New Standard

Interviewers no longer have to do their job. Just hurl a fact at an athlete or coach, not even a question. “Coach Stan Van Gundy, your team hit 18 3’s tonight.” (Puts microphone on Stan Van, waiting for a response.) How about: “Coach, why did your team make so many threes tonight, was it a […]

Fuckin’ Red Wings

Petr Mrazek earned the start at goalie in game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Grand Rapids Griffin saved 44 shots – a new Red Wings record in a debut. Some of them were impractical, but he still made them. Seven penalties against us put Detroit at a constant disadvantage. Nonetheless, we fought through […]

Good Luck, Red Wings

Remember to fight hard and play together. It’s been a joy watching you skate this season, from the superior leadership at the top to our Grand Rapids Griffins supporting – LET’S GO GET IT!


Nod to the first African-American player in the history of Major League Baseball. We salute you, Jackie Robinson, and thank you for the unimaginable hardships you endured to help not just the sport we love, but our entire world. Let’s continue to knock down the walls that divide us.

End of NBA Season

What a ride. The Pistons crushed the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, a fitting end for both teams. For New York, because they’re terrible, a deserved ass whooping. (Trade Tim Hardaway, Jr.!) And if you’re Detroit, these god-awful teams must be beaten. It should be us as the 7th or 8th seed in the playoffs. Thank […]

Grand Rapids, MI
