STAMFORD, CT – I don’t know who told you I forget to write something for today, but it’s a lie. A very stable genius like me would never forget, in spite of a late hockey game and one-year old twins who just would not let me sleep last night. I’m not stalling at all right […]

NEW YORK, NY – They light the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City tonight. I’m hyper-aware of this because 1) I live in New York and 2) I work only a couple of blocks from 30 Rock. But, the fact that we are about to fall headlong into the holidays should come […]

BRONX, NY – Let’s be honest for a moment, no one in their right mind wants to be doing any kind of work the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Why do we continue this charade, year after year after year? The entire week should be a global holiday, where everyone is allowed to be depressed, […]

Doc Diz re Nick Saban with the Devil, TCU, Bama and College Picks

11 Comments

FORT WORTH, TX – I think Nick Saban is in cahoots with Beelzebub. How else do you explain their victory last week? LSU holds em’ to ten points…..ten…over the course of the game. With 50 seconds left, the Bayou Bengals kick a field goal to go ahead. 50 seconds. And Bama has no timeouts. So, […]

MIAMI, FL – Last night’s game between the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the Crimson Tide of Alabama was one of the most anticipated college football games I can recall.  I spent the past two and a half weeks at my father-in-law’s house, who graduated from Notre Dame in ’58, so that probably added […]
