Read it, don’t read it, I don’t care…just needed to get some things off my chest.
On the clock. Quick hitter. Let’s turn and burn.
The grass is green, the sky is blue, and UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad declared for the draft. This is probably a good call for a kid who would have gone straight to the NBA if not for the rules that are presently in place post LeBron and Melo. They still have talent there, but the place has been an odd chemistry blend for years now, and it will most likely take a settling in period for new coach Steve Alford to implement his basketball philosophies. It is not like he would have ANY chance of staying a year after next. The CRAZY proclamation today was that Marcus Smart was going back to Oklahoma State. Wow. Of all the kids who are possibly NBA ready skill and physically, he is up there. There are some improvements he can make in his game, and to think he almost won the Wooden Award without those improvements. NBA teams in the top five picks are sad.
Joe Montana’s son will be given a look by…the San Francisco 49ers. Why not? You are pretty set at QB, and you just did something Joe DIDN’T do-LOSE a Super Bowl. Let’s see how well the genes got transferred, and give him a look before assuming that the 4 schools in college he attended is a direct signal of his lack of talent.
I got a few numbers for you: 33, 0, 4. The 33 is the age of Tracy McGrady, who just got picked up by the Spurs. I would have guessed higher being that his entire career has been a changing team, wasting of talent, injury fest. Zero is the number of titles AND playoff series he has won. The 4 is the number of titles the Spurs have. The Spurs are like the basketball version of the Pats as far as smart pickups, and they must also have surmised it was an ODD numbered year, meaning they can win it.
I tell Lindsey all the time how I want the biggest, hugest, largest dog on the planet when I get one. The African Boerboel is ranked first for me, with the Saint Bernard and Newfoundland probably being #2 and #3. Anyway, in the spirit of those conversations, check out these cool big dog pics: http://www.buzzfeed.com/newu1085/21-dogs-who-dont-realize-how-big-they-are-654m
The Following was good, then slightly unrealistic, then more believable, then bad, and then good again this week. To further clarify, it had a few times when I thought it was going off the rails that it brought me back because the plan WAS to make me believe that it had gone off the beaten path. And, once again, the end had not one but two surprises for us. Well done again, and I will be tuning in next week again.
The FBI has questioned Dennis Rodman about his North Korean trip. He actually gave them some new family information and this can only go more sideways if he goes back according to a new invitation. I am trying to wrap my head around if he actually feels important and if he even is in the same paradigm of knowing how much everyone laughs at him. Something about a square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square and an enigma wrapped in a puzzle. Way to represent the Rant Squad regardless, bro.
Here we go tonight. The Lakers win and they are in, possibly even in the 7th spot. If they lose, there is a scenario they are totally out of the playoffs. The Nuggets and Clippers are vying for NOT playing the Grizzlies in the first round. The Nugs win and they are good. If they lose and LA Clippers win their game, the Nugs get all they can handle with food eating, pot smoking Zach Randolph. Here we go.
As in Caro “line.” Props to the Yankees for giving their arch rivals a classy couple moments by playing THEIR song during the Yanks game. Sweet Caroline never sounded so sad, but so perfect for this tragic memorial.
Pat Summerall died yesterday at the age of 82. Thoughts and prayers to the family, it is a great loss in the world of sports, and he will forever be known as one of the truly football voices in our land.
That is it. Will I blog tomorrow? That is a CLOWN question, bro. Peace.
