Mile Miller Trolls Lebron James at Cavs Game

The NBA season is just a few weeks away from getting started. And many teams are making tours around their local markets playing exhibition games and rallying their fan bases for the upcoming season.  The Cleveland Cavaliers are all too happy to showcase their biggest off season acquisition with Lebron James back in the mix. 

Last week the Cavs were in Cincinnati taking on the Pacers, and last night the Cavs traveled back down I-71 to Columbus Ohio.  Upon taking the court, King James received a standing ovation.  That is until we realized it was Mike Miller who the crowd really wanted to see, or at least that's what Miller would want us to think.

Clever Shirt in the Royals Clubhouse

So the Kansas City Royals are on a tear in the ALCS. Last night they retired the final 16 batters to take a commanding 3-0 lead over the Baltimore Orioles.  It seems that the team of destiny, is not only filling that destiny, they're starting to talk some smack while doing it.

While I'l admit to be an O's fan living here in the DMV, sorry Nats the O's were here first.  I have to admit this is a pretty clever shirt, and I'd buy one if I was a KC fan.

Walker's Rants: Don't Call it a Comeback

Yea I know we're back at this whole blogging thing and giving it ago.  It's been a while and the game has changed a bit, but we still now how to hold it down here are Walker Sports.  Make no mistake about that. 

Now let's see if we remember how to do this, Walker's Rants are a go...

The Cowboys are legit as of now 10/13 but that doesn't mean it will last into the new year...

Who told the Browns they were allowed to be good? Someone Free Johnny Manziel...

Quietly the Chargers are putting together a great season thanks to a lax schedule. But don't worry they'll find a way to bow out in the first round...

Mississippi State is legit, but they will go as far as Dak will take them... shocker I know right?

I'd like to welcome Perry Speedstick Baker to the USA Sevens squad, way to make Tiger, and 1823 proud...

So the NBA season is coming back around and I haven't heard one person mention the defending champs.  Guess that's just how Pops likes it...

I actually feel sorry for Lovie Smith...

When Peyton throws his record setting TD pass does it actually change your perception of him?

Dan Snyder is still a dick...

I find it fascinating that as pass happy as the NFL currently is, the overall all best teams feature a strong running game...

Happy Birthday and congratulations to Zach Test for picking up try 100 on his stellar 7s career...

Jamis Winston will leave FSU before the end of the week,and pursue a mediocre NFL career...


Arizona Kicker Misses Game Winner, But has the Perfect Flop

The Arizona Wildcats are a week removed from their biggest win in the Rich Rod era, and they followed things up with a dud on Saturday against a bi-polar USC team.  Both PAC 12 teams are struggling to figure out exactly who they are, and what they do, and as the season plays out either could find themselves in the drivers seat of the PAC 12 South. 

One thing that will not help the Wildcats cause is missing game winning field goals.  What will not help the cause of all kickers claiming to be athletes is this epic flop he executed after missing the important field goal. 

Mississippi State Jumps to No. 1 in Both Polls

They weren't on anyone's radar five weeks ago, but thanks to impressive outings the past two weekends, everyone knows who Mississippi State is today, as they leapfrogged Florida State to take over the top spot in the AP and Coaches Poll.  

The Bulldogs began the season unranked and among 10 teams receiving consideration votes.  Since that time they've knocked off a host of ranked teams in spectacular fashion and set the record for fastest ascension to No. 1 in the polls.

Marquee victories for Mississippi State, include blowing out LSU in Death Valley. This was followed up by going the road the next week and defeating Texas A&M. The Bulldogs finished off the impressive three week stretch by knocking off then No. 2 ranked Auburn.  Needless to say it's been a productive few weeks for the Bulldogs. 

While I'm sure the boys will enjoy the No.1 ranking for now, they must remained focused with a loaded back half of the schedule that includes, Kentucky, Alabama and Ole Miss, there's still plenty of battles left to fight, not to mention the potential of an SEC title game.

Game Day Eats: Fall is Here, Break Out the Slow Cooker

Fall has finally rolled into the the Mid-Atlantic area, and the temperatures are slowly dropping.  Finally it feels like football weather. That means it's the perfect time to break out the slow cooker, and make some down home feel good food. 

Today we are keeping it simple and cooking up some Sausage, Greens, and Beans.  Yup it's really that simple, don't believe us? Check out the recipe here.

We did make a few adjustments to the original recipe.  We're cooking with Dinosaur Kale.  Yeah crazy name and to be honest it looks a bit crazy as well. But Dinosaur Kale is perfect for meals like this because it's hardy and can hold up to the long cooking process. 

We're also using some Greed Chard as well.  Thanks our vegetable share we have an abundance of various greens and this meal makes use of a lot of them which is a good thing. 

Finally we went with an Andouille Sausage from the local butcher Meat on the Avenue.  These are naturally cased, and have a bit of  kick to them. 

Of course all of these is being served with a nice selection of Pumpkin and a few early season stout beers.
