    Oneida Indian Nation, of Upstate NY, Begins Radio Campaign Against "Redskins"

    The Washington Redskins have an offensive nickname. It's one of those things we'll look back on 20 years from now and find absurd. For now, however, there is debate, there is publicity, there is a radio ad campaign. The Oneida Indian Nation, which is based in Verona, New York, has bought thousands ... More >>

    Super Bowl Commercial Week: Brad Pitt Ditches the Paparazzi (and Jennifer Aniston) on a Beer Run

    Despite opposing claims from TMZ, celebrities are actually nothing like us. Take, for example, this 2005 Heineken commercial starring a beer-thirsty Brad Pitt.

    Jets Need Sympathy; Giants Need To Wake Up

    Watching the Giants 19-17 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, two things stood out for me. The first was how extraordinary the Giants have been in two championship postseasons. The second is how utterly ordinary they have been otherwise in the Tom Coughlin era. Late in the 4th quarter, ... More >>

    Tom Couglin on the Giants' Loss to the Eagles: "Why?"

    According to ESPN last night, Tom Coughlin's first word to his team after the Giants' baffling and humiliating 17-10 loss to the Eagles on Sunday Night Football was, "Why?"
