Tuesday Lunch: The Kings are on a Roll

By Will Robinson

Yes, the relocations talks have been hovering all over the team. Yes, there is now a public pissing match between the owners and the city of Sacramento, but despite all of that, the Sacramento Kings are playing their best overall ball of the year. They have won five of their last six (the lone loss being a blowout in Chicago), including going 4-1 on a five game road trip. There have been some interesting developments going on with the team, so I will highlight a few that I have noticed (and extrapolate from some box scores).

Wednesday Lunch: NL West Preview and Playoff Predictions

By Nick Gallaudet

Note: Check out this post on our NEW site!

This week we finish our division-by-division look at Major League Baseball with the National League West, home of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants. This division is notoriously tough to pick and it seems like each of the last five years, it’s ended up the opposite of what everyone thought it would be, so let’s see if this year is going to be any different.

Tuesday Lunch: MLS All Time Team Leading Goal Scorers

By Evan Ream

 

While watching the MLS games last weekend, I was thinking about each individual team’s all-time leading goal scorers. For some reason (maybe because MLS has only existed for 16 years) people never talk about the player that is the leading goal scorer for each team. Now that each team officially has a leading goal scorer, I would like to look at who are each team’s all-time top marksmen and when that mark will be broken as well as who will break it. I will start with the team who has the lowest goal total for their all-time leading scorer and go up from there.

Monday Lunch: Thoughts on MLS Week 1

By Evan Ream

Wow, what a great opening weekend! MLS First Kick 2011 has made me upset that it is only Monday now and I have to wait until Friday to watch more. This weekend had it all: There were goals, upsets, red cards, dream debuts, flops, and tons of drama. Here are a few thoughts on each of the games that took place this weekend:

Thursday Lunch: NL Central Preview

By Nick Gallaudet

It’s ironic that the division with the most teams in baseball also seems to be the least competitive. The NL Central has some of Major League Baseball’s most storied franchises, but we’re talking about 2011, so none of that matters, now let’s get down to business.

Tuesday Lunch: The Return of Tiki Barber?

By Will Robinson

As I was getting up and preparing for my day, I noticed a particularly interesting tweet. Adam Schefter reported that Tiki Barber, yes, the four years removed from the NFL Tiki Barber, filed paperwork to be reinstated into the league. Clearly, I'm not in the mind if Tiki, but I could speculate as to why he is making a return to America's game.

Thursday Lunch: AL East Preview

By Nick Gallaudet

The AL East was the division I dreaded previewing the most; this division is the most boring division in the bigs, but it gets the most attention. Every year, at least two teams come into the season already eliminated, and unfortunately, that number is at three this year. Without further ado, here is your 2011 AL East preview.

Tuesday Lunch: Sacramento Kings Game Report

By Will Robinson and Dylan Davis

Last night, two members of the esteemed TSL staff attended the last game EVER at ARCO Arena. Yes, it will still be there, but under the stupid name “Power Balance Pavilion.” GREAT. We attended a game earlier in the month, but our seats were not conducive for a game report. This time, however, we were approximately 20 feet away from the basket on the Kings’ side of the court. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
