Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Sorry Ron Artest World Peace, we don’t believe you when you say this elbow to James Harden’s head was an accident. Most people would stop after an accident and check on the person they hit, not sprint to the other end of the floor to defend themselves in the upcoming fight.

The Charlotte Bobcats have lost 20 games in a row and are on their way to the worst winning percentage in NBA history.  Their owner, Michael Jordan, was one of the most competitive players in history, how can he sleep at night knowing this is his doing?

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Isn’t it interesting that as soon as it was clear Tiger was out of the running at the Masters the announcers began to elevate Phil while downing Tiger?

Congrats to Bubba Watson for winning the green jacket on the 2nd playoff hole.  We bet you never associated the name Bubba with golf.  Of course the redneck jokes have already started about what he’ll select for the Masters champion dinner.

Bobby Petrino was in a motorcycle accident while giving a ride to his 25 year old mistress, who’d just been hired in the Arkansas athletic department the week prior.  We’re sure Atlanta Falcons fans are calling this entire incident karma.

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The theatrics to get a foul called is getting old. *cough* D Wade *cough*

The media wants so badly to discredit LeBron that they considered his performance in Game 3 of the Finals poor.  Not sure how having 9 assists and contributing defensively is a poor performance.  Poor performance = Dwyane Wade’s disappearing acts throughout the playoffs.

I’m not exactly sure why this guy thought it was a good idea to attack NBA legend Dominique Wilkins (in Atlanta no less) but I’m certain he wishes he hadn’t.

This must have been the week for throwing punches in the NBA. Both John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Lakers (nothing new for him) were suspended for getting violent.

Derek Jeter…The Price is Right!

For well over a decade, Derek Jeter has been the face of the New York Yankees.  For well over a decade, he’s deserved that.  However, its 2010 and Derek Jeter is 36 years old and his skills are not what they once were.  He isn’t even the best shortstop in a Yankee uniform (but we all know there is ZERO chance that Alex Rodriguez gets that spot as long as Jeter is in pinstripes).  The Yankees offered Jeter a 3 year $45 million contract and he’s turned his nose up at it.  Derek are you crazy?  That’s enough money to keep you in young models and actresses for many years to come.

But this goes back to something that almost all multi million dollar contracts go back to.  Ego.  If you listen closely you can hear Jeter thinking, “do you know who I am?”  Yes Derek, we do know.  You’re an aging shortstop who is okay in the field and declining as a hitter.  THATS who you are.  I’m sure no one has told you that though because people are too busy telling you how special you are to the Yankees.  Special you were.  You were the face of the franchise as it became once again the gold standard in Major League Baseball.  But nowadays, you’re a run of the mill player.  You need the Yankees far more than they need you.

Derek, the price is right.   That’s why Yankees management told you and your agent to play the field.  It’s their subtle way of letting you know, your time is coming to an end.  You can end as one of the greatest Yankees in history.  Don’t let you ego lead you somewhere else.  Look at how silly Emmitt Smith looked in an Arizona Cardinal uniform then do yourself a favor and sign on the dotted line.

Dear Baseball, We’re Over You Already. Signed, Other Sports

Here it is November 23rd and baseball is still giving out its post season awards. Does Bud Selig not own a television? Is he not aware that ALL of the major sports are now in season and the public at large has moved on? Someone needs to talk to the powers that be in baseball and let them know that there is no benefit to their season stretching through the entire calendar. Its probably not good for the sport for the Most Valuable Player award to be a buried story on SportsCenter behind NASCAR and Duke whipping up on the pansy of the moment.

Baseball is struggling to find a new audience and the thought is probably to string things out to keep people talking. I’m not entirely sure that dragging the World Series into November and the awards into Thanksgiving is the right way to go. How about having games start and end before the kids that you need to grow up to be your next group of fans go to bed? Then let’s try to wrap this entire thing up before it gets cold outside. I’m fairly certain people in Minnesota and Seattle (where there are snow warnings right now) aren’t dreaming about tossing the ball.

So someone clue Bud Selig in, or at the very least show him a channel guide so he can understand that now is not the time to talk baseball.
