The Sports Guy

Pretty much everyone I know has dogged The Sports Guy in recent years for being repetitive or boring, and I’ve tried to defend him, but even in the last couple months there have been columns that have left me scratching my head. (The “Is is harder to go undefeated in fantasy football or real life?” column took the cake.)

Oh, and the Patriots are favored by 22.5.
