Let’s Be Honest…

07 May

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Rest In Peace Tiaina Baul “Junior” Seau, Jr.  Junior’s family has agreed to allow his brain to be studied.  There may be so much we can learn about mental illness and concussions from his passing. Oh, and ESPN, you can stop showing the clip of his grieving mother any time now.

Only Floyd Mayweather could bring together 50 Cent, Triple H, and Justin Bieber.  The Money Team gets more random by the day.  We wonder if they’re accepting applications.

Floyd won, but boxing still loses as it looks less and less likely that we’ll ever see Mayweather/Pacquio. Maybe Floyd can think it over while serving his 87-day jail sentence, beginning June 1.

Have you heard of Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals?  If you haven’t, you will, as the 19 year old is taking Major League Baseball by storm.  Not sure there’s been this much excitement around a teenager since Ken Griffey, Jr.

On Sunday after being intentionally hit by Phillies pitcher, Cole Hamels, Bryce Harper paid him back by stealing his first MLB base…home plate.

The Orioles outlasted the Red Sox in 17 innings on Sunday.  It just keeps getting worse for Bobby Valentine’s team.

Our long national nightmare is over, Albert Pujols finally hit a home run for the Angels. Hopefully now we can stop with the Albert Pujols has lost his mojo talk.

Rickie Fowler got his first PGA Tour win at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. And he sure stood out in his all orange ensemble. Who’s hitting up Puma for that look?

Do NBA fans care less about the Jazz/Spurs or the Magic/Pacers?  These series could go seven games and no one would even bother to watch.

The Oklahoma Thunder made quick work of the defending champion Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs.  Let’s just hope they don’t get tripped up by the re-surging Lakers in the next round.

Baron Davis is the latest NBA player to go down with a gruesome knee injury.  How many more of these will we have to see in the playoffs?  Can we make a deal with the networks to stop showing them in slow motion replay?

Dwyane Wade missed the winning shot that would have swept the Knicks but all you hear is “why didn’t LeBron have the ball?”  Have we resorted to blaming LeBron for everything that goes wrong with the Heat?

Dear crazy stalker, please be thankful Ron Artest was banned from this game where you ran on the court looking for Kenyon Martin.  For the record, I’m sure your crack research team told you Kenyon now plays for L.A. but please note it is the CLIPPERS and not the Lakers.

Ma’am, you deserve the Blake Face for your actions.
