Wake Up With Whitty – 12/18/2017

Good morning Good evening Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re midway through December and the unthinkable has happened. The Bengals have been officially eliminated from playoff contention. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. I could’ve sworn they’d clinched a playoff spot like three weeks ago since they’ve played so well this year. The good news is that Bengals fans can watch the last two weeks of the season without worrying about the games’ outcomes. At this point the best case for the Bengals would be to lose out in order to get the best possible draft pick, but I just can’t get on #TeamTank. It feels wrong. So I’ll continue to pull for the Bengals to win, knowing that if they don’t then they’re still going to better their draft position. It’s win-win. Or lose-lose, I’m not quite sure. Anyways, here’s Wake Up With Whitty.

Best College GameDay Sign – Wisconsin | Madison, WI, 11/18/17

The long awaited return of the Milliron Sports College GameDay Sign blog is here. It’s been a while, but the stars aligned and I was able to get some quality time in with the blog machine on this gloomy Saturday morning.

The GameDay crew was in Madison, Wisconsin for this week’s showdown between the Michigan Wolverines and Wisconsin Badgers. I have no dog in the fight, but I love cold weather Big Ten football, so this is must see TV in the Mac household. As expected, the opposing coach, Jim Harbaugh took a beating from the fans with their signs. If you can weed through all the copycats out there trying to get money sent to their Venmo accounts, there is usually some pretty good content in the crowd. That is, unless you’re in NYC Time Square for some weird reason.   Continue reading

Nati Boys #32: Marvin Lewis Let Everybody Down

img_3509-1

The Nati Boys are starting to get fed up with Marvin Lewis and his antics, as he clearly has no control over his team and has resorted to calling out players in the media.  Burfict also managed to get himself tossed from another game, so things aren’t going so great in Bengals world right now.  We also discuss Greg Olsen’s foray into broadcasting, which has the Vikings organization a little bit upset.  Things are looking grim in Dallas as well with Jerry Jones feuding with the rest of the league and Zeke finally starting his 6-game suspension.  LiAngelo Ball and his UCLA teammates are finally back in the U.S. after their shoplifting arrest over in China, and Lebron James does battle with Enes Kanter and the New York Knicks.  Finally, in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of things we’re thankful for.
