2016 NBA Playoffs Predictions: Conference Semifinals

Although the 1st Round is not quite finished, the Conference Semifinals of the 2016 NBA Playoffs kick off this weekend. It's hard to give a definitive statement for a round that has yet to have concluded so we'll just leave at that. Stay tuned over the next couple days as the picture of the next round clears up as I add more pick but in short, this post will tell you who is going to the Eastern and Western Conference Finals.

B-Flo 360 Podcast - April 27, 2016

I am very pleased to announce the debut of the B-Flo 360 podcast. Each episode will feature me riffing on three different topics in three different minutes in what is probably the most original idea ever.

In our debut episode, I discuss the triumphant return of the "Deflategate" scandal, Donald Trump and the "woman card" as well as movie I am not looking forward too. Enjoy.

2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs Predictions: Conference Semifinals

We shall roll on the road towards the Stanley Cup as (save for one series) we have concluded the opening round of the playoffs and are headed to the Conference Semifinals. Who will survive and advance to their respective Conference Finals and whose dreams of hoisting the Cup will fall by the wayside? Here are my predictions.

The great John Ourand has reported that Tirico is in fact headed for NBC in what is one of the biggest talent moves in the past several years.

2016 NFL Mock Draft: 10th Edition

Just in case the Rams trading into the top spot was not enough for you, now the Eagles have traded up to the second pick. And since both are taking quarterbacks, that helps to give us a different draft picture than the one we had a couple of weeks ago. And with the draft coming in only a handful of days, will we see any more shakeups?

It's time for my tenth mock draft.
