My Week 4 NFL Super Stack Rankings

  I figured I need some new superlatives to describe my NFL week to week power rankings. Power rankings just seems so cliché. And then for some reason the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers came to mind. And then I remembered how I used to have a crush on the pink power ranger. Ahem “used to” being the key word there. With the Monday night game over and done with, we […]

Seahawks huge road win…early impressions

The Hawks win in one of the most gut wrenching games I’ve ever seen. My stomach still hasn’t quite recovered. I need some Pepto. At the end of the 3rd quarter, this game looked over. However, I kept thinking back to last season against the Falcons. How Russell Wilson willed this team back from a huge deficit.

With attempts to ignore bias, […]

The 2013 Seahawks: The anti-Seattle sports team

Who exactly are these Seattle Seahawks? They are big. They are nasty. They are cocky. And yes, they are really, really good. This is unprecedented territory for a Seattle sports team. For as long as I can remember, in my 34 years of existence, the Seattle sports teams have always mirrored a soft reflection of the regional fanbase. Seattlites are a soft, small, passive-aggressive, white-collared, section of the country that […]

Lebron, Peyton…and the great numbers debate.

@ESPN_Colin it's as simple as this: Lebron's stats go up in the playoffs and Peyton's goes down. People are biased. Numbers never lie — L.David (@_Lenny_Lens) September 24, 2013 I posted this on twitter in response to Colin Cowherd’s tweet about Peyton Manning getting the benefit of the doubt when it comes to greatness due to his squeaky clean image. After I replied to Colin, I went downstairs to make […]
