Read it, don’t read it, I don’t care…just needed to get some things off my chest.
On the clock. New format. Let’s turn and burn.
Yes. Old school versus new school. Old school wins. Madden 25 had elimination voting to determine the final winner of their cover athlete. Being that it was #25, they brought in some old school guys. The winner? Barry Sanders won over Adrian Peterson. Boom goes the dynamite, and at least Barry doesn’t have to worry about the injury curse as he is retired. AND, Adrian doesn’t have to worry about because he isn’t retired.
Indiana bullied the Hawks again and are in firm control of this series. All you need to know about last night’s game is to Google “gerald green dunks on josh smith.” That’s it.
OKC beat Houston last night, and it was close. OKC gets a test that might wake them up for 48 minutes a game against a team that will just keep shooting. If I am Houston, I am thinking that being up 4 points with 3 minutes to go and NOT playing a little slower and forcing passes was NOT the right remedy.
The Spurs pulled away late on the Lakers, but they were in control for most of the game. The Lakers were a trendy upset pick. Not. Tim Duncan had one fast break finger roll that made him look like the early 2000’s.
Where is Hubie Brown by the way? He better be doing tonight’s Memphis-Clippers game. Last night was empty being Hubie-less. I am going to start throwing shit.
Or lack of. Great moves by both Russ Smith and CJ Fair for deciding to come back to school. You know you will have decent teams, you know you will be starters who can boost your stock with a consistent year, and you both realize that the second round of the NBA draft means no guaranteed money.
Penn State QB Steve Bench will transfer to get a starting gig, as he is in a fight with Tyler Ferguson and incoming stud Christian Hackenberg for the starting role. Good luck, Steve, but I think a backup role has got your name written ALL over it. Sorry. As Dennis Leary said in No Cure For Cancer about Lou Gehrig, “Gotta love Lou Gehrig. Jesus Christ, poor Lou Gehrig. Died of Lou Gehrig’s disease. How the hell do you not see that coming? You know. We used to tell him, Lou, there’s a disease with your name all over it, pal!”
Here is a taste of the performance:
This even made Lindsey laugh. Onion headline, and thanks to my ex-boss and friend Vince for sending along. http://www.theonion.com/articles/report-for-8th-straight-year-europeans-remain-weir,18912/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=standard-post:headline:default
LeBron James is going his second year without smart phone or Twitter. No contact, and off the grid. The Twitter thing is believable. The smart phone thing is a joke with his stature. Nice media coverage on it though. You are a monk, sir. A 6’8″ basketball playing monk.
The Cardinals beat the Nationals and Stephen Strasburg, dropping the dude to 1-4 with a plus 3 ERA. It is early in the season, and no one should panic, but…they are probably about two more losses in the next month away from panic.
These are technically all sinkers, and the only question was who brought us home as anchor. Who is our runner up? That would be Auburn CB Jonathon Mincy, who decided to show how powerful of a hit he could deliver in a game…a spring game….against his own teammate. Ugghhh. Getting ejected from your own internal game is just dumb. http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootball/story/auburn-db-jonathon-mincy-tossed-from-spring-game-for-crushing-hit-042413
And the winner of today’s low is Browns player Quentin Groves. In between practicing with the team, Quentin found time at night to answer an ad, meet at a hotel, and hopefully get full service from a lovely lady. What he got was a police sting, and a charge of solicitation of a prostitute. Nice job. You are a freaking professional athlete and you can’t figure out a better way to get laid? Dude.
That is it. Hope you enjoyed. Will I blog tomorrow? That is a CLOWN question, bro. Peace.
