Sports Fandom’s Biggest Pandemic: Matthew Stafford Syndrome

Reading Time: 3 minutesSports fans have a tendency to overrate players. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just a fact. Whether it is because they are someone’s favorite player, they’re on someone’s favorite team, or they just grew up with them, tons of players get overrated.

The Boat Trip: A Giant Story of Dysfunctionality and Embarrassment

Reading Time: 11 minutesIt was New Year’s Day in 2017… the Giants had just beaten Washington to cap off an exciting 11-5 season. All was well. And then, it wasn’t. Following the game, a few Giants receivers decided to take a spontaneous trip to Miami. Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham Jr, and Sterling Shepard were among the crew.

Really, there wasn’t a problem… until someone (we don’t know who) decided it would be a good idea to take a picture...
