Super Bowl sneak peek and Lions news

Fat Guy Corner

The Super Bowl on February 7th will be the Tampa Bay Bucs from the NFC and Kansas City Chiefs from the AFC. The Tampa Bay team shocked Green Bay at Lambeau Field 31-26 as road underdogs. I missed that prediction as I thought Green Bay would defeat the GOAT Tom Brady and crew. I say, never go against the GOAT! […]

NFL playoff recap, battle of the Bays, new Lions GM and more

Fat Guy Corner

A quick recap of NFL Playoff action is where we will start this week. The AFC Conference is down to Buffalo and Kansas City. The Buffalo Bills disposed of the Baltimore Ravens 17-3 in an extremely low scoring affair. I will continue to state that, until Lamar Jackson can pass better, the Ravens will struggle in the playoffs. Change my […]

Cardinals topple Detroit CC, advance to state semifinals



LAPEER — The Davison Cardinals punched their ticket to the D-1 state semifinals with a 20-7 win in the regional final over Detroit Catholic Central last Saturday. Davison (10-0) gutted out a tough defensive battle with Detroit CC (9-1), breaking a 7-7 tie in the fourth quarter with two touchdowns in the last 11 minutes of the game. The Cardinals […]

A recap and preview of NFL games, including the geezer special

Fat Guy Corner

The NFL Wildcard Weekend featured some good and bad football games. Let’s start with Saturday’s action on the grid iron. The Buffalo Bills took care of the Colts in a tight one 27-24. The win was Buffalo’s first playoff win in 25 years. I thought the coaching of Colts Frank Reich was horrendous. Why the Colts went for it on […]

College football championship Monday, plus a look at NFL coaching needs and weekend games


The college football championship is set Monday night Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. The Alabama Crimson Tide earned a spot by easily defeating the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 31-14. I never doubted Alabama would be in the championship as they are the best team in college football. I don’t care for Nick Saban one bit! However, Saban’s coaching and recruiting […]

Predictable college football playoffs arrive

Fat Guy Corner

I ask, can the college football playoffs be any more predictable and boring? I mean, Alabama at No. 1, Clemson No. 2, Ohio State No. 3 and Notre Dame at No. 4. I am tired of Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State every single season being one of the top four teams. The boys from Notre Dame just received a football […]

A look at the college basketball season ahead

Fat Guy Corner

The Holiday deadline is here again, so this article will be written without knowing Saturday college football results. The next obvious sentence is: no NFL results will be known either. The holidays are tough on us old sports writers this time of year. However, the fat guy will deal with the hand he has been dealt. I believe it’s time […]

College football teams head to the playoffs

Fat Guy Corner

The college football season is winding down and what a wild ride it’s been here in 2020. The cancellations of so many games has effected everything this season. I am actually shocked the season finished and we will have four playoff teams in the end. The conference championships are this weekend and wild stuff is still in the cards. The […]

A look at NBA draft results and why I’ll be eating extra pie this Thanksgiving

Fat Guy Corner

The fat guy is out of the woods. A shutout was tossed as far as seeing any horns for deer season so far. The bucks tossed a shutout much like the Detroit Tigers do hitting wise on the baseball field. I will say, the peaceful and quiet environment in the woods is priceless. Heck, it could be a Mastercard commercial. […]

Is another brutal week of football ahead?

Fat Guy Corner

The opening day of deer season was awful for all of us deer hunters. The rain and wind cut down one of my favorite days of the year spending time in the woods. It is Monday night and there is still no deer hanging from the fat guy’s buck pole. I do have numerous squirrel sightings making unneeded racket. I […]
