    Lost in the fun and frivolity of Tuesday’s ESPN hatchet job on the Patriots was this companion piece in Sports Illustrated, which I never got to. Of course nothing pleases the national pundits and fan bases in other markets like accusing Patriots fans of being crazy, paranoid, conspiracy-theorist nutjobs, and you know how much I hate incurring their scorn. So I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that two of the leading sports media outlets simultaneously came out with almost identical articles dredging up the same tired, unsubstantiated rumors about an eight-year-old Spygate story and both conveniently posted them at the...

    If last night’s “America’s Game” was a winning scratch ticket for Patriots fans, “Do Your Job: Bill Belichick and the 2014 Patriots” is the series of Powerball numbers. The coach gives NFL Network unprecedented access in tonight’s 8 p.m. special and offers a real window into how his Patriots do business. Belichick and his staff talk about everything from calculating game plans to making decisions in the heat of the moment. Here is a preview of some of the best moments from the show: Mystery solved Who is Ernie Adams? What does he do? These are two questions that have...

    It was a sausage fest. Almost all of the Ashley Madison female profiles were faked. Only 12,000 of the 5.5 million women listed at the site were real. It was all faked.Gizmodo reported: When hacker group Impact Team released the Ashley Madison data, they asserted that “thousands” of the women’s profiles were fake. Later, this number got blown up in news storiesthat asserted “90-95%” of them were fake, though nobody put forth any evidence for such an enormous number. So I downloaded the data and analyzed it to find out how many actual women were using Ashley Madison, and who...

    The fallout from the “Deflategate” report released Wednesday remains very much up in the air (sorry), with most informed opinion pointing to at least a several-game suspension for quarterback Tom Brady. The media coverage of the report has focused largely on the highly-qualified language of its conclusion (“more probable than not” that Patriots staff cheated, and that Brady “was at least generally aware”), rather than on the far more damning details of the report. Patriots (and Brady) apologists like to point to this language as an indication that the report doesn’t meet the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard of proof,...

    A report commissioned by the NFL has found that there was "no deliberate attempt" by the New England Patriots to deflate game balls to gain an advantage over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Champsionship game—but that a Patriots locker room attendant and equipment assistant "participated in a deliberate effort to release air from Patriots game balls after the balls were examined by the referee." The report by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP also said "it is more probable than not that Tom Brady...was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities." Brady denied knowing anything about deflated balls.

    As they rush to file their taxes by April 15, Americans are rightfully frustrated with the complexity of the 74,608-page-long federal tax code. The federal tax code is 187 times longer than it was a century ago, according to Wolters Kluwer, CCH, which has analyzed the federal tax code since 1913. Amazingly, in the first 26 years of the federal income tax, the tax code only grew from 400 to 504 pages. Even through President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, the tax code was well under 1,000 pages. Changes during World War II made the length of the tax code balloon...

Wednesday’s announcement by Little League International that the team has been stripped of its U.S. title and all its wins from the 2014 Little League World Series tournament is all the proof you need. These are not champions. To say otherwise is a disservice to these kids, and they’ve already been handed a disservice big enough to last a lifetime.

    That time-honored anti-cheating mantra, “You’re only hurting yourself,” may be literal fact, according to new research. Emerging evidence suggests students who cheat on a test are more likely to deceive themselves into thinking they earned a high grade on their own merits, setting themselves up for future academic failure. In four experiments detailed in the March Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from the Harvard Business School and Duke University found that cheaters pay for the short-term benefits of higher scores with inflated expectations for future performance. The findings come as surveys and studies show a majority of...

    “Torrid” is the word the nearly 60-year-old congressman used to describe his extended adulterous relationship with a married staffer that destroyed his political career. He is possibly the last politician in this town that most observers — especially those of us who knew him and respected him — would have expected to have an affair. When he and the woman met, he said, they spontaneously felt a “spark.” As they worked closely together, the spark ignited a flame of passion that eventually engulfed them. The congressman added, as a matter of context, that his vulnerability stemmed in part from the...

The much ballyhooed show featured a cameo by First Lady Michelle Obama who invited the chefs to pick what they needed from the White House garden in the opening scenes. Mrs. Obama agreed to appear --and give the show access to the garden -- because the episode promoted her healthy eating themes and...
