Batman On Steroids: How The NFL On Fox Theme Song Was Born

It was March 1994, and Fox Sports president David Hill was on the phone with a new employee. Hill himself was something of a new employee.

Why The NFL Flexed Bears-Eagles Over Patriots-Ravens

At first glance, it was a surprise. The NFL wants America to see McCown-Foles over Brady-Flacco?

How Fox Faked Crowd Enthusiasm For Neil Diamond Last Night

Last night's MLB All-Star Game in New York featured a few high moments, several low moments, and one weird moment.

Ben Watson's Added-Time Header Delivered Doomed Wigan The FA Cup

Wigan entered today's FA Cup final as 17-2 underdogs, and are facing a major uphill battle to stay in the Premiership.
