Let’s Be Honest…

19 Dec

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Let the bowl games begin! Did you know you missed three bowl games last week? Do you even care? (pic from Famous Idaho Potato Bowl)

As if Penn State hasn’t had enough problems their QB, Matt McGloin, suffered a seizure and was hospitalized due to a locker room fight with Curtis Drake, WR. What’s really good?

Quietly the NCAA has decided to hold off on plans to pay student athletes an additional $2,000 stipend. Let’s hope they can agree to enact this, it’s the least they can do.

Thursday Night Football on Saturday night? NFL Network needs to go back to the drawing board with that one.  It’s okay to pay the graphics department to change the logo a tad.  You got a new CBA so you should be able to afford it.

The firing of NFL coaches has commenced with Todd Haley, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, and Tony Sparano, ex-Miami Dolphins head coach. Will the golden child Gruden finally land somewhere (and off Monday Night Football)?

As reward for Romeo Crennel, interim head coach, (and perhaps a slap in the face to Haley) the Chiefs dethroned the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers with the discarded Kyle Orton at quarterback.

Who knew it would be upset special week in the NFL? Most folks in their fantasy football playoffs are wondering what went wrong.

Many rejoice as the mighty Tebow has fallen. Unfortunately, that only means that the media will now turn their attention to picking him apart.

The story of Sam Hurd, WR of the Chicago Bears, shocked us all. He’s been associated with major amounts of cash and cocaine and is now the poster child for hustling backwards.

#1 Baylor defeated #2 UConn in women’s college basketball on Sunday.  I hope you are prepared to see more of Britteny Griner this season, she continues to be a beast.

Baron Davis has agreed to sign with the Knicks when he returns from his back injury.  Somehow nothing about this sounds good for the Knicks.

Speaking of teams moving in the wrong direction, how bout those Lakers?  Since losing the Chris Paul jackpot they’ve signed Josh McRoberts and Troy Murphy.  Nothing about that spells championship.

Considering his personal issues (divorce) and the teams’ recent moves, how long before we see Kobe: 1) go off on a teammate or 2) behave like a petulant child?  My bet is February.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to former Georgetown standout and current Boston Celtic, Jeff Green, as he undergoes surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. That NBA physical came at the right time.
