Video: 45 Days of Ties in 34 Seconds

So the run is over. I went 45 days without wearing the same time on the air twice. When I started doing a daily #tietweet on twitter just for fun, a former co-worker told me I couldn’t post repeats. I took that as a challenge and decided 45 days would be the magic number. I’d like […]

A still-perfect record of 12-0 is a very nice Monday morning realization. One that a lot of people began […]

Watch What You Tweet

Washington Redskins rookie Robert Henson, via his Twitter account, went off on disgruntled fans after Sunday’s win over the Rams.
