Well folks, the COVID-19 virus has shut down sports. College sports seasons have been cancelled, and professional sports have been postponed for the foreseeable future. Yeah. It really sucks. Lots of us are stuck at home with nothing to watch. What are you gonna do? Talk to your wife? Play with your kids? Hell no! […]
My daughter Emma and I went out to watch the XFL’s New York Guardians host the LA Wildcats at MetLife Stadium yesterday. We had a lot of fun. I highly recommend the XFL as an overall football fan experience, but I will say that you might want to wait until it gets a little warmer, […]
I got tickets to this week’s local XFL game via VetTix.Org. The New York Guardians will host the Los Angeles Wildcats this Saturday at MetLife Stadium in scenic Northern New Jersey. Full disclosure: I’ve been an unabashed XFL fan since the league’s initial incarnation way back in early 2001. I’ve quite enjoyed this year’s […]
Army Women’s Basketball, Men’s Basketball, and Wrestling all BEAT NAVY! this past Saturday, making it the first three star Saturday of the year. Women’s Basketball won handily on a final score 62-52. By comparison, the Men looked like the better team throughout the contest, but they somehow let Navy come back on them twice, including […]
It’s been a big sports week, friends. Football held its annual awards banquet, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse got off to fast starts, Softball opened with a win, and Baseball starts this weekend. We even got a little actual football with the XFL. Let’s get into it. Army Football Awards Banquet Army Football held its […]
Army Lacrosse has a big game this weekend against #18/#19 UMass, and that means it’s finally time for the second annual AFF Army Lacrosse Season Preview. Army Black Knights Army has been a primarily defensive-minded team for the past few years, but with the team’s best player serving on the attack, and arguably its […]
Good morning, friends! Army Football has hit the coaching carousel, and Army Lacrosse is right around the corner. Let’s get it on! Army Football Coaching Moves and Rumors Quarterbacks Coach Mitch Ware announced his retirement this week after thirty-five years, including the last six at West Point. He mentored some outstanding players, including Ahmad […]
Happy Sunday, everybody, and if I didn’t say so already, Happy New Year as well. We’re halfway through an electric NFL Wild Card weekend, and Army’s got a new Defensive Coordinator. I like it. I honestly thought the rationale behind Army Head Coach Jeff Monken’s hiring former Georgia Tech, App. State, and Wofford DC and […]
It’s been a pretty good week of football, my friends. I’ll admit that I’ve been a little more caught up in the NFL’s race to the playoffs than I have been in college bowl season, but yesterday’s games were all terrific. Western Kentucky won an instant classic in the First Responder’s Bowl against Western Michigan, […]
Happy Friday, friends. I’d hoped to get this preview up yesterday, but I’m up in Vermont with my family, and the skiing has been pretty good. All that clean mountain air can be a little distracting to say the very least. The As For Football crew sincerely hopes that you had an excellent Christmas or […]
