Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…
The New Orleans Saints and their former defensive coordinator were caught in a bounty scheme that paid players for hard hits. Their defense was pretty terrible, I doubt they paid out much…or at all.
The media has put a lot of emphasis on the bounty story and the NFL is allegedly going to make an example of the Saints but is anyone foolish enough to believe this is isolated to one team or group of players?
Arian Foster finally got the new deal he deserved from the Texans (5 years, $43.5 million with a hard guarantee of $20.75 million), wonder how Matt Forte and Ray Rice feel about that?
After being beaten in their own building by a late Austin Rivers’ shot in their first meeting, UNC routed Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium to claim the ACC regular season title.
Kentucky cruised to an undefeated SEC regular season. Will Coach Cal be once again disappointed by a talented, young team in the tournament?
Oh Lebron, you’ve got to stop making it so easy for your detractors.
Deron Williams scored 57 and the New Jersey Nets needed at least 54 from him to beat the woeful Charlotte Bobcats 104-101.
Rajon Rondo’s stat line of 18 points, 20 assists, and 17 rebounds gave him his second triple double in three games. He was the talk of many trade rumors this past week so was his performance a plea to stay with the Celtics or a “look what I can do” for other interested teams?
Kobe Bryant’s mask must be bringing him good luck as he has been on fire since breaking his nose in the All-Star game. Sunday he had 18 in the first quarter, on 8 of 11 shooting, as he lead the Lakers to a win over the Miami Heat.
Tiger Woods posted a 62 (his lowest final round ever) and for a moment TVs all over America were interested in golf again. Unfortunately for the media, Rory McIlroy went on to win the tournament and the #1 overall ranking.
By now you’ve seen or heard about Juan Pablo Montoya’s horrible run in with the fuel truck at the Daytona 500. We’re glad he’s safe but we still can’t figure out how this happened.
