If you have been keeping up with most of my articles regarding collecting, I have done little to hide the fact that I am not a big fan of Panini’s business practices. Between their redemption process and the enormous gap in quality between their low end products and high end products, it is becoming difficult […]

Try this for a quick and easy appetizer or meal:  Spicy chicken satay. Satay is a reinvention of Indian kabobs and were developed in South Asia. In many ways, satay has become westernized, and one of the most common meats that have found its way into satay style is the ever-versatile chicken. Grilled over high […]

Chef Sean Vodden - Feb 14, 2015

For many years, people have debated which came first, the chicken or the egg? There is no easy answer to the age-old question, and the same is true when considering which type of grill is better to cook on, propane vs charcoal. Propane is a versatile, multipurpose fuel that is clean-burning, inexpensive and non-toxic. It […]

If you read my first article on the ethics in the sports cards industry, you will remember that I put a lot of emphasis on the unethical practices on eBay.  It is a topic that I could probably write another article or two very easily. But deceptive sellers and whiny buyers aside, there are other […]

I hadn’t been to the TD Garden in Boston since last year’s 2013-14 NHL season.  I was lucky enough to receive some Bruins tickets for this past Christmas and made the trip to the Garden twice in the last two weeks.  I’ve had some of the greatest times I’ve ever had inside the TD Garden, […]

Walk into any sports card shop and you will be mesmerized by glass cases, many three or four shelves high and full of single cards. These cards are often in penny sleeves and top loaders, and are usually arranged by section — baseball, football, and so forth. Occasionally you will also see a case catering specifically […]

Sports are a huge staple of American culture and society today. From overly proud parents who brag about their little athletes, colleges settling old rivalries and proving dominance, to four major professional sports programs in the United States and Canada, sports are here to stay. I know personally, I almost do a double take when […]

Collecting sports cards is a hobby I have enjoyed for some time now.   I have had countless experiences, ranging from hitting the lottery to downright criminal.  About 95% of my transactions meet my expectations, as in I get what I paid for or was expecting in a timely manner.  That other 5% is divided between […]

As I lay in bed listening to the rain pitter-patter on the window, I thought to myself, “I could not have picked a more miserable day to document the Stanford game day experience.” Not only would my pictures look all sad and gloomy, but also I questioned how much the wet weather would impact attendance. […]

WHY THE SAINTS WON’T WIN! Absorb these OFFSETTING notes right off the bat: 1. The Saints have not won on the road in their small playoff window history & the Saints are a dome team. In the playoffs, dome teams playing in temperatures below 35 degrees on the road are 3-22. But… 2. Here’s a […]

Last Word Staff - Jan 4, 2014

The logos donned by football teams represent their history and are riddled with esoteric messages filled with hidden meanings. Many fans remain unaware that the symbol of their favourite team’s crest tells its own story. What does it mean when a particular animal is the highlight of a logo? Similarly, what’s the deal with the […]

Qualifying US Open
Eddie Davey - Jan 4, 2014

Most golf fans think of mid-June, Father’s Day, when they think of the U.S. Open, few even know the virtually untold story of US Open Qualifying. While the winner accepts the trophy on Sunday afternoon, the true “open” part of the U.S. Open takes place in relative silence at qualifying events held weeks before the […]

Premier League
Last Word Staff - Jan 4, 2014

Football s one of the most followed sports on the planet and has billions of loyal fans. While leagues like Serie A are very popular, the biggest draw is arguably the English Premier League. There are many reasons for this – with the fast-paced action and tough tackling being important. The Premier League is also […]

Bruno Lage

Not many fans knew the name Bruno Lage before he stepped foot in the Wolverhampton Wanderers technical area in the summer; nobody really knew what to expect. In all honesty, it all felt a bit ironic that once again, Wolves were turning to the Portuguese to oversee a change in fortune. It all felt a […]

This summer, the Harry Kane transfer saga was one of the biggest stories with the star Tottenham Hotspur striker eyeing a move away from his boyhood club after their continuous decline since reaching the Champions League final in 2019.

Tottenham Hotspur new era

Another Tottenham Hotspur new era beckons, with another manager axed and new man in the hot seat. Spurs are a team in transition once again, which all started with the departure of Mauricio Pochettino.
