Looks like Danica Patrick is no fan of Jay Mohr

Last night was the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Awards Ceremony is Las Vegas with the host of the events being comedian and Fox Sports Radio host Jay Mohr. Now I'm not a huge fan of Mohr but he had some quality bits last night including awaiting when Kevin Harvick fights one of Gene Haas' grandkids and criticizing Clint Bowyer's acting (watch his full monologue here). But the night was without question by a joke he made about Danica Patrick and how she might be uncomfortable considering she's "not used to being this close to the front," obviously making light of her struggles this year. Safe to say she and boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. (who was also Rookie of the Year) did not enjoy the joke. Let's go to the videotape.

The NFL for breakfast? It's coming in 2014

(AP)
The NFL has announced the London series for the 2014 NFL season with a third game, up from two this year. In Week 4 on September 28th, the Raiders will host the Dolphins. In Week 10, the Jaguars will host the Cowboys. And the big whopper is the Week 8 game between the Lions and the Falcons which, unlike the other two games that will start at the traditional 6 p.m. London time and 1 p.m. Eastern, this one will kick off at 1:30 p.m. London time, meaning an East Coast start of 9:30 a.m. and a West Coast time of 6:30 a.m. Yes, you read that correctly.

2013 NFL Playoff Projections: Week 14

December has arrived and we have reached the final quarter of the 2013 NFL season with still much to be decided, even with one team in the Seattle Seahawks that has clinched a playoff berth. There are a number of compelling races to watch down the stretch and I think we are all wondering how the pitiful race for the second Wild Card spot in the AFC will shape out. Here are my projections as of Week 14.

2013 NFL Predictions: Week 14

AP
Who is the best team in football? After their demolition of the Saints on Monday night, you would have to say the Seahawks, right? I certainly think so, at least at this juncture, and considering how good this club is at home as well as the fact they have the inside line to homefield advantage...maybe I shouldn't get too ahead of myself. After all, they do have a tough road bout with their division rivals, the 49ers. Here are my week 14 picks.

2013-14 Bowl Projections: Week 14

Not only was Chris Davis' touchdown return of a missed Alabama field goal epic, it helped to throw another wrench in the BCS. Now with top ranked Alabama out of the championship picture (for now), Florida State and Ohio State are both in the driver's seat but you now have both Auburn and Missouri in the mix when they play in Atlanta for the SEC Championship if either slips. Just in case you didn't have enough reasons to be watching college football next weekend. Here are my latest bowl projections.

2013 College Football Predictions: Championship Week

After a wild Week 14, quite likely the best week of the college football campaign, we have arrived at the week of conference championship games with seven of those this weekend. And of course we have plenty of storylines. Can Northern Illinois get back to the BCS? Will Florida State and Ohio State continue their undefeated seasons and meet in Pasadena? Will an unlikely showdown in the SEC Championship result in Missouri or Auburn getting to the title game? Here are my picks.
