By DX Traeger (@PolemicLicense)

Each year on October 31, people all over North America dress up in costume for “Halloween,” a holiday that celebrates ghosts, goblins, and popcorn balls (although not necessarily in that order).

Children aren’t the only ones to get in on the costume act: recently, Benstonium’s own cub reporter reviews what the stars of the MLB, NFL, MLB and NHL dressed up as:

By DX Traeger (@PolemicLicense)

Who would you root for: the Flyers, or the Russians?

Sid or Ovi The Face of the NHL: Crosby or Ovechkin

Ever since their rookie seasons, NHL superstars Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin have waged a fierce and often-times personal battle to be number one.  Despite their mutual successes, when the league brass at the NHL offices in Toronto sat down to choose a player to serve as the face of the NHL, their decision was simple: Alexander Ovechkin scores goals, but Sidney Crosby scores goals and doesn’t look like a mutant.

These two bitter rivals will once again face-off in Pittsburgh, less than 48-hours after the Penguins captain took a puck to the face. Throughout his career, Crosby has overcome head-rattling concussions and teeth-shattering collisions, so Pens coach Dan Bylsma is confident that his star will once again bounce back. (more…)

By DX Traeger (@PolemicLicense)

When Ray Lewis finished his NFL career at the Super Bowl, he left the only franchise he ever knew with gaping wounds at the linebacker and leadership positions. Still, if you believe Baltimore GM Ozzie Newsome, the answer to finding the “next” Ray Lewis is simpler than one might expect.

“In the past, we’ve had success in the draft by relying on the advice of our talent evaluators,” Newsome explained on Tuesday, “but it’s not every day that your team is trying to replace one of the NFL’s all-time great defenders and frauds.”
