Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…
The battle of the titans between LSU and Alabama was all about defense and the mistakes on special teams.
We hope everyone watching understands why there should not be a rematch of that horrid game for the National Title.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State and Kansas State were exploding on offense. How many folks changed the channel to watch that game? How many knew it was going on at the same time?
This week’s blooper comes from the Georgia-New Mexico State game. Those hedges play some mean defense. Kudos to Aron White for avoiding those precious xylophones though, oh and getting the TD.
After the accolades of Joe Pa getting to the top of the win category in college football, Penn State is reeling with charges, filings, and resignations of high ranking athletic officials covering up incidents of child sexual abuse involving a former coach. Oh Joe, even being old might not get you out of this one.
These definitely aren’t the New England Patriots of old we are watching. Two losses in a row? The jig is up, you’ve been figured out.
People clowned Eli Manning for saying he was on the same level as Tom Brady, while he might not be, he sure has some pretty impressive victories against him.
Peyton Hillis’ discontent is affecting the Cleveland Browns’ locker room causing teammates to hold an intervention in hopes of getting his mind right. Hillis had a great story last year but now he just looks disgruntled, as well as victim to the Madden curse.
Tiger Woods’ former caddy, Steve Williams, continues to tear him a new one through his comments only this time he chose to make it racial. We get it, you’re mad. Isn’t the fact that he sucks right now satisfying enough?
At this point, the NBA lockout talks are going nowhere and the players are playing hardball. It’s going to take the risk of running low on funds to get anywhere.
An interesting story has developed during these talks as it was discovered that Michael Jordan has taken the lead on pushing the hard-line stance being held by the NBA owners. The same MJ that told Abe Pollin to sell his team if he couldn’t make money on it. Oh how our thoughts change when we sit on the other side of the table.
As a result of MJ’s stance, players have considered boycotting his shoes. Sadly, it won’t make any bit of difference.
Speaking of legends…it’s been 20 years since Magic Johnson told the public he has HIV. Didn’t you think it was a death sentence in 1991?
NASCAR has put their foot down and punished Kyle Busch for deliberately wrecking a fellow racer (and championship contender) in the Truck Series. He was banned from both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races held this weekend. It’s time for some in car anger management.
Did you know the NHL season started weeks ago? Do you care?
