In the despair that is currently the wasteland of the sports world in the age of coronavirus, Wednesday graced us with the long awaited premier of the 35th season of MTV’s reality show meets kind of actual sport(?), The Challenge.
The delay was a bit longer than what we are used to; usually we get a trailer, releasing the theme and cast, around mid-February. That wasn’t until March 18 this time around, for an April Fool’s release date.
But, it’s here, and just in time, as the desire for competition has never been greater.
With all of that out of the way, lets get into the premier of The Challenge: Total Madness.

The Premier League is finally getting a hall of fame and we get to find out the first inductees on March 19. The English top flight will be adding two legends from a yet-to-be-revealed ballot of 20 players. Now they’re letting the fans decide the inductees, which is dumb as hell, what they should have done is let one fan decide the classes, and that … Continue reading The Premier League Is Getting A Hall Of Fame, Here Is What The First Five Classes Should Be

Since the mid-2000’s, sports video games have largely stayed the same. The various companies in charge of our AAA sports game franchises issue an annual software release, which usually amounts to updating the rosters, making graphical and in-game engine improvements, and perhaps adds in a new mode (like the ever-popular Ultimate Team modes in Madden and FIFA) or playing feature. (Remember the visual cone of … Continue reading Pokemon Sword/Shield is the best new SPROTS video game
What’s popping willforthrillers. We’re back for another week of exciting NFL football and we’re going to enjoy it the only way we know by: by pissing away all of our money. Last week we went 2-3 to extend the current losing streak. We’re still up 29-21 on the season but that record is trending in the wrong direction. The good news is that I love … Continue reading #Thrill5 Week 11
Hand up. I want to begin by taking responsibility for my picks last week. I had been on a bit of a heater the past few weeks and started to get cocky. But everything that goes up must come down and last week I went down hard, going 1-4 on my picks. And if the Seahawks make the field goal to win the game in … Continue reading #Thrill5 Week 10
Welcome back willforthrillers! Last week was a bye week for the blog (I actually wrote a blog but the editor-in-chief was too busy moving or something to post it) but I still posted my picks on Twitter like I always do and we went 4-1, bringing the season record to 26-14. My Thursday and Monday night picks have been winning at a high rate too. … Continue reading #Thrill5 Week 9

That’s a 62.9% winning percentage. We’re making money! This week’s board has a lot of untouchables. These are games between two bad teams/teams that are inconsistent and difficult to predict, or mismatches with … Continue reading #Thrill5 Week 8
Hi everybody we’re back for the week 7 #Thrill5 column. Unfortunately, I was unable to fulfill my blogging duties last week but luckily an international man of mystery stepped in to give his picks and went an admirable 3-2, bringing our season record to 19-11. This week I’m back and we’re going for all the marbles. Mortgage your house, withdraw your kids college fund, and … Continue reading #Thrill5 Week 7
