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.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Tom Brady looked like Aaron Rodgers last week.  Unfortunately, the Ravens didn’t capitalize the way the Giants did.

Brady tried to go for the nail in the coffin and Jimmy Smith made him pay dearly.  After this interception, you just felt the momentum shift in the Ravens favor. Alas…

Out With the Old

In 1999, Michael Jordan retired (we are going to just pretend that whole debacle of a comeback with the Washington Wizards never happened, ok) and a big deal was made about who among the current crop of NBA players would replace him.  Many acted as if the NBA would shrivel up and die without his presence.  Considering Jordan was the preeminent player of his time (and to some the best NBA player ever) his absence left large shoes to fill.  Many thought the heir apparent was Kobe Bryant who was three years into his career and seemed to pattern his entire game after Jordan.  Kobe never quite lived up to those lofty expectations but built his own great career and 12 years later, the NBA is undergoing yet another changing of the guard.

Empire State of Mind

Well, here’s this non-NBA fan’s take on Carmelo Anthony and his trade. I like Carmelo. I’m from the Baltimore area and he represents Bmore well. So I wished him the best throughout all of this. This trade talk lasted a LONG time, but I wasn’t annoyed like I was with Brett Favre (remember my rant on that, lol). Read the rest of this entry »

A Superstar’s Right To Choose

Now that Carmelo Anthony is officially a New York Knick (as if there was ever any question) the pundits are front and center lamenting how these new athletes are killing the league by choosing to go play on superstar laden teams in glamorous cities.  Oh spare me.  Since I’ve been alive there have only been a few NBA champions.  In the ’80s, there were the Lakers, Celtics, and 76ers.  The ’90s brought us the Pistons, the Bulls dynasty (and a couple gift championships by the Rockets courtesy of Michael Jordan’s retirement) and the ’00s have had the Lakers, Spurs, Heat, and Celtics.  That’s nine different teams in 30 years in a 30 team league.  The NBA has always been made up of the haves and have nots.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The flashy, metallic imprinted uniforms worn during the NBA All-Star game made them look like futuristic break dancers.

Justin Bieber winning the Celebrity Game MVP over Scottie Pippen making all of those three pointers was a travesty.

The coaches as hype men during the Dunk Contest was a little unnecessary. Ok, a lot unnecessary.

The Kia Optima was a great prop (you know you were checking it out) but Blake jumped over the hood so the dunk wasn’t all that impressive.

It’s too bad Javale McGee isn’t a bigger name, the two basket dunk was creative and had anyone else done it they would have won it all. Read the rest of this entry »

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Duke should have won against UNC, there is no reason Duke shouldn’t have been ahead for the entire game.

(Disregard the team, just listen to the chant)

No one is really surprised Ohio State lost to Wisconsin. However, the fans spitting on OSU players is not a good look.

Let’s hope things in the NCAA pickup as Selection Sunday is only four weeks away.

The Cleveland Cavaliers snapped their record breaking losing streak and contrary to popular belief it was not to the Washington Wizards.

As soon as the Cavaliers got on the winning side of things they promptly gave the Washington Wizards their first road win. Read the rest of this entry »
