Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…
Vancouver fans went nutso after the Canucks lost the NHL Stanley Cup at home but everyone was fascinated by this couple whose behavior seemed counter to what was going on around them:
The Bruins winning the Stanley Cup gives the city of Boston a championship in every major sport since 2004.
The Green Bay Packers received their Super Bowl rings and they are mighty nice!
If Tiki Barber don’t sit down somewhere! Now he is saying that he hopes football will turn his life around after falling into depression due to the loss of his analyst career and a divorce. All as a result of his poor choices. Um, ok.
Why can’t John Wall throw a baseball without it looking like a bounce pass?
Speaking of bounce passes, will the NBA be able to avoid a lockout and get an agreement done before the end of the month?
Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals is out 4-6 weeks with a wrist fracture. I’m sure this will not help him as he tries to get a huge contract at the end of the season.
Rory McIlroy won the US Open with a record setting performance. People are quick to compare this to Tiger’s Masters in 1997. Does Rory have staying power?
Weren’t you impressed that Rory was able to win the very next major after his dramatic collapse at the Masters in April?
In the last five laps at this weekend’s NASCAR race at Michigan Dale Earnhardt, Jr. crashes yet again (and changed the dynamics of the race). He just cannot win or walk away without a scratch. Did he piss the wrong person off or something?
The US Soccer team redeemed itself (somewhat) by beating Jamaica in in the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals amid comments of underperformance. If soccer is to have more of a presence in the US they got to do better.
The Williams’ sisters are back (to the delight of many men)! Venus and Serena are competing in Wimbledon and feeling quite confident.
The NCAA held a forum last week in an effort to increase minority presence in its coaching ranks. Wow! We’re impressed, hope it helps to make a difference in the numbers (18 of 120 BCS programs are coached by minorities).
