Cup Check: Are Baseballs Ruining America’s Pastime?

As summer gives way to fall the MLB postseason is finally upon us. It was a long and grueling regular season filled with errant helmet throws, pointless rules debates, and, worst of all, the Mets. One hot button issue that has taken over the world of contact sports of late has been concussions and the risks they pose for future health concerns. While head trauma is certainly a very real and very scary threat, we witnessed another very scary moment on Tuesday night during the Yankees/Twins Wild Card matchup (at least most guys would consider it scary). I’m hear to bring your attention to another player safety issue that doesn’t get nearly as much press coverage as it deserves: dudes getting hit in the junk. Continue reading

That’s so Athens 

The Milliron Sports crew is embarking on an awesome adventure this Saturday. We are returning to our home away from home; Ohio University for Ohio Brew Week. A trip to Athens no matter how long or short the stay always provides endless stories. It also brings back a lot of memories, and obviously with the reputation of being a highly ranked party school most memories are about drunken nights. I have a couple of stories I’d like to share that come to mind every time I think Athens.

Raw Recap 07/10/17

Welcome to another Raw Recap with Jefe; where I breakdown the latest episode of RAW and offer my predictions on future matches. Tonight’s Raw featured the continued development of storylines that should carry into SummerSlam. Last nights pay per view (Great Balls of Fire) in my opinion was an amazing success. It brought back flashes of the “Attitude Era” with a brutal end to the Ambulance Match. Titles were retained, friendships were ended, and rivalries continued. So what happened on tonight’s RAW?

Brock vs. Joe: The Preview

Lesnar vs Joe (Picture: WWE)

Fellow wrestling fans, we may have an epic battle on our hands in Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar. The two finally clashed on Monday Night RAW. It was an all out brawl between the Superstars. The brawl on Monday night adds excitement to the storyline, and has a lot of wrestling fans marking out at the thought of this match up at WWE’s Pay-Per-View, Great Balls of Fire.

Samoa Joe made his first appearance on the main WWE roster in January. His presence was immediately felt as he was introduced as a heel to fans. Joe had a direct impact on the storyline between Triple H and Seth Rollins, when he injured Seth Rollins knee in an ambush attack almost costing him a WrestleMania appearance.

So what’s next for Samoa Joe? He has held title belts with several other brands, so most fans think he is being groomed to be the next champion and face of the brand. I don’t believe he’ll get a chance to hoist the Universal Championship quite yet. I anticipate they will ride out Brock Lesnar’s reign until the next WrestleMania. What do you think? Comment Below!
