Burns & Gambo

  • Burns: I did not see this coming

    I love movies with surprise endings. I’m just arrogant enough to think that I’m as smart as the guys who made the thing and I can figure it out before they figure it out for me (I’m not that smart – I just think I am). The thing about them is that the clues are […]
  • Burns: A tiger of similar stripes

    Call me a cynic. Maybe I’ve been covering professional athletes too long. But there is not one shred of me that is surprised about Tiger Woods. The voicemails, the cover stories, the photos, the sheer volume of women that are now being linked to the world’s number one golfer. I don’t care how perfect the […]
  • Gambo: The Wildcats come up short of smelling roses

    There are certainly no moral victories for the Arizona Wildcats this season. The door was wide open for them to win the Pac-10 championship and head to their first Rose Bowl thanks to a down year by USC. But Saturday’s devastating loss to Oregon — a game in which they led 24-14 in the fourth […]
  • Burns: The Cardinals make me giddy

    At times it was sleepy. At times it was undisciplined. At times it was alarming. And in the end it felt more like relief than a victory. But the one thing, the main thing, I take away from the Cardinals 31-20 win over the Seahawks on Sunday is a sense of…….giddiness. Kind of like that […]
  • Burns: Predictably unpredictable

    The Arizona Cardinals unpredictability have become….so predictable. In a season filled with plot twists, what’s one more? The unexpected is to be expected after watching the Cardinals demolish the Bears 41-21. 4-0 on the road, 1-3 at home. Five picks last week for Kurt Warner, five touchdown passes this week. Shock the world by beating […]
  • Burns: You get what you pay for

    The Yankees were the best team in baseball this year. Well….you know what they say. You get what you pay for. Call it like it is, the Yankees paid for a World Series by shelling out a half billion dollars in the offseason. What’s funny, in a your-car-is-stuck-in-the-mud kind of way is that ever since […]
  • Burns: You just can’t trust the Cardinals

    One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies: “It seems to me that if there was any logic to our language, trust would be a four letter word.” Uttered by Tom Cruise’s character Joel in “Risky Business”, that quote is right up there with the more famous line in the movie (“Sometimes, […]
  • Gambo: Collinsworth apologizes

    It was just about 10 months ago when NFL analyst Chris Collinsworth said that the Arizona Cardinals were the “worst playoff team of all time.” We’ll it’s almost a year later and Collinsworth has issued his apology. Today, as a guest on Gambo and Ash, Sports 620 KTAR Phoenix, Collinsworth was asked if he has […]
  • Gambo: Phillies no match for Yankees

    Pedro Martinez, Cole Hamels, Joe Blanton? Are you kidding me? Memo to the Philadelphia Phillies – this isn’t the Tampa Bay Rays you are playing in the World Series. Just how people are picking the Phillies to win this series when after Cliff Lee they are sending that collection of junk to the mound is […]
  • Gambo: Cardinals-49ers to battle for NFC West

    And then there were two. The NFC West is now officially a two-team race between the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals made sure of that on Sunday with a convincing win over a pathetic Seattle team that couldn’t get out of its own way for much of the game. The victory […]
  • Burns: What will the D-backs do with Webb?

    It is the biggest decision this organization has ever been faced with. Careers may be defined by it. Fans may be won or lost because of it. What are the Arizona Diamondbacks going to do about Brandon Webb? They have until five days after the completion of the World Series. Either they pick up the […]
  • Gambo: Lang is good signing for Coyotes

    The Phoenix Coyotes despite ownership turmoil have just added a front-line center by signing Robert Lang. Granted Lang is 38-years-old but he is a solid pick up and will be a welcome addition on a young team. Lang had 39 points in 50 games last season for Montreal, missing the end of the season with […]
  • Gambo: Gretzky era over, Tippett hungry to coach

    Now that the Wayne Gretzky era is mercifully over in Phoenix it is time for the Coyotes to turn the team over to a real NHL coach and that coach will be Dave Tippett according to my sources. Tippett is a solid NHL coach, a career coach with a good structure, a plan and also […]
  • Burns: Everybody knows that sex sells

    Everybody knows that sex sells. And everybody knows that the Cardinals “sex appeal” is on the offensive side of the ball. All the attention, all the focus, all the love and all the question marks go to the offense. Warner’s hip…..Warner’s age….Warner’s arm…..Fitz’s brother…..Fitz’s touches…..Whisenhunt’s play calling….no Haley….Beanie’s injury….Beanie’s fumbles…starting running back….Boldin’s health….Boldin’s contract…..Boldin’s attitude….Leinart […]
  • Gambo: Vontaze made an impression

    While I go to most of the Arizona State home football games every year I had to sit the first one out this season as I was in California with my daughter for a soccer tournament. Now, while I did get to see some of Oklahoma-BYU, Notre Dame-Nevada and Alabama-Virginia Tech in between soccer games, […]
