Happy Birthday Hulk Hogan


What do Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan, and Hulk Hogan all have in common? They are all hands down the greatest all-time performers in their respective sports. It looked like The Golden Bear was about to be dethroned, but right now I can’t count on any more Majors from Tiger Woods. Hogan turns a youthful 58 today.…

Robinson Cano is a FitzandVig masher


Robinson Cano smoked a line drive grand slam in the bottom of the 7th inning to break a 2-2 tie and spark the New York Good Guys to a 6-5 win over the State Farm Los Angeles Home Depot Angels of Anaheim Inc.  It was Cano’s 20th bomb of the season and third hit of the day.  The Grandyman drove in…

Oklahoma will not win the National Championship


Preseason rankings are a waste of time. We all know it’s just a way to promote the big schools for the TV networks, so you can have an early season #3 vs #8 matchup that draws in tons of viewers. Like everything revolving around college football, it’s all about the money. The darling of August is the Oklahoma Sooners with…

A post about beach Volleyball? Read on, trust me.


  Fitzandvig are competitive guys so we appreciate all sports. We especially appreciate sports played by attractive and fit women, who encourage you to look at their butt’s. A female UK beach volleyball team have allowed a sponsor to put a QR code on their uniform bottoms. (Do yourself a favor and click) If you’re not familiar with what a…

Is Rafael Soriano back?


A lot of people, including Fitz and Brian Cashman, were not fans of bringing in Rafael Soriano. I didn’t mind giving up a first round pick, but I hated his contract. Almost $12 million per year for 3 years, with a player opt-out each season. So that means if he sucks, we over paid. If he’s great, then he can opt…

What if the Yankees had signed Cliff Lee?


This is certainly pie in the sky thinking, but we were awfully close to landing Cliff Lee this off season. We all knew what happened with him ultimately going to the hated Phillies because “they had a better chance to win“. Though it might have had a little something to do with some drunken Yankees fans treatment of his wife…

Chris Johnson deserves a long term deal


If there’s one thing I hate in professional sports, it’s players holding out. This most often occurs in football where contracts are not guaranteed (except for that funny thing called “guaranteed” money”). I spoke in detail earlier about Osi Umenyiora holding out and my feelings about how a marginally better than average DE deserves no more than the $3.5 million…

FitzandVig believe in Ivan Nova


Ivan Nova continues to state his FitzandVig case for remaining in the Yankees 5 man rotation (forget the 6 man nonsense).  On a night where the stuff was pure, but the command was not, Ivan The Great battled through 6 strong innings versus a quality Los Angeles Angels squad.  Nova improved to 11-4 with a 3.85 ERA and has handled the…
