The NFL Draft is Officially a Primetime Affair

This press release came while I was in the car and unfortunately, I could not get to a place that had wireless until late. So here’s the official word from the National Football League that next year’s Draft will span three days with the first round happening on a Thursday night and ending on a […]

Jason Whitlock Is Bat Shit Crazy

There are certain writers I try to ignore at Fang’s Bites for the simple reasons they write to draw attention to themselves and more often than not, they don’t write about the sports media. But even when these writers do, they come off badly. Case in point, Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star and […]

Crazy Thursday Linkage

Well, where do I begin? There’s the Erin Andrews story which continues to pick up momentum. And we have ESPN finally acknowledging the Ben Roethlisberger civil lawsuit story two days after other media outlets have been reporting it.

Various Press Releases

I just got a note from Jessica Camerato from telling me to get to sleep so I’m going to finish this quickly and go to bed. Funny how people just know my schedule thanks to Twitter. So as I listen to Sophie B. Hawkins on iTunes, let me finish this post up. NBC and […]

Two Baseball Press Releases

I have two baseball-related press releases for you. One is the very first from Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, a channel I cannot watch on DirecTV, but that’s neither here nor there. This touts the record ratings the network received for Tuesday night’s extra-inning win over the Chicago Cubs. Tuesday Night’s Phillies Win Delivers Highest Phillies Rating […]

Fang's Bites Musical Interlude – Heart

Time for a musical interlude as I haven’t done one in over a month. I’ll post videos from one of my favorite bands, Heart. Led by sisters Ann & Nancy Wilson, the band was one of the pioneers for future female-led bands. Ann sang, Nancy played guitar and through the years, have added and subtracted […]

Westwood One Radio Unveils 2009-10 NFL Announcing Teams

After battling the ESPN College Football schedule press release for over an hour and a half as I edited it and tried to get it to format properly, this release from Westwood One Radio arrived in the Fang’s Bites inbox. This should be considerably easier to edit compared to ESPN’s mile long release. Take a […]

The Last Ever TNT Quotage from The Open Championship

I’m going to miss getting TNT quotage from the Open Championship seeing that this is the last year for Turner Sports at Golf’s Oldest Major until at least 2014. Thanks to the fine people at TNT for getting this out so quickly not just today, but throughout the four days of the Open. Notes from […]

Videos of the Week – Rage Against the Machine

Two years ago, on my birthday no less, I posted a RATM-themed Videos of the Week so I figured it was time to do so again. It’s time and why not? No real reason other than Rage Against the Machine is one of my all-time favorite bands. I’ll start with Freedom off RATM’s self-titles debut […]
