Let’s Be Honest…

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.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Tony LaRussa announced his retirement after leading the improbable St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series victory.  That’s what you call going out on top.

Eric LeGrand, who was paralzed from the neck down in a game last season, inspired his former Rutgers’ teammates, among many others, by leading the team onto the field this weekend.

Congrats again to old man Joe Pa for being the winningest coach in Division I football with 409 wins. What’s the over/under on how high that number will get? Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Whoever thinks the coaches have it easier would have to change their mind after Sunday’s NFL games.

Sean Payton, head coach of the New Orleans Saints, was ran over by one of his own players on the sideline and suffered some broken bones and a torn MCL, yet still pushed through the pain and remained on the field to coach through the first half.

In that same game Tampa Bay’s DB coach, Jimmy Lake, tore his patellar tendon celebrating an interception. Read the rest of this entry »

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Some say Floyd Mayweather sucker punched Ortiz, some say it was a fair knockout.  I say, the more chances we get to see this picture, the better.  This was the highlight of the fight.

Aren’t we tired of Floyd fighting lesser competition and getting controversial victories?  When is he going to bite the bullet and fight Manny? Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s Be Honest…

*blowing the dust off and removing the cobwebs*

After seriously prolonged negotiations and a shortened pre-season the question must be asked: Are you ready for some football?!!!!!!

I guess the NFL feels it should get a cookie for similarly suspending Jim Tressel in his new gig as Colts’ assistant. They had to. Folks would have been outraged otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »

Give The Ladies A Chance

I’m giving women’s basketball a chance. Don’t laugh.

I watched a few women’s NCAA games this past season and was very much impressed. I enjoyed it more than the men’s games I watched. And when I stopped to think about it I figured if I told anyone what I was watching I probably would be made fun of. Generally, people don’t view women’s basketball, whether it is NCAA or WNBA, as legitimately as men’s. The thing is women’s basketball is all about passing and teamwork, which is lacking in the NBA and one of the reasons I don’t watch it anymore. Read the rest of this entry »

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Vancouver fans went nutso after the Canucks lost the NHL Stanley Cup at home but everyone was fascinated by this couple whose behavior seemed counter to what was going on around them:

The Bruins winning the Stanley Cup gives the city of Boston a championship in every major sport since 2004.

The Green Bay Packers received their Super Bowl rings and they are mighty nice! Read the rest of this entry »
