Ten Things I Hate About Major League Baseball

February 4, 2010 2 comments

After last season’s epic blog about the ten aspects of Spring Training I hated, I wanted to write the sequel that widens its focus to the sport as a whole. If there are two things I hate most, it’s Bluetooth headsets and Lifetime Original Movies. If I had to add a third, it would be unnecessary movie remakes. Chew on those things as I jump to the next sentence, and more importantly, to the real topic of this blog. Read more…

Sam Smith: Also Sampling the Lincecum Weed

November 7, 2009 3 comments


This column slipped under the radar a bit, but when I read it this morning, I had to share. Sam Smith, best-selling author of “The Jordan Rules” and full-time blogger for the Chicago Bulls, writes in a column this past week that everyone has it wrong when it comes to where the most logical place for LeBron James is.

Hey, look at that. I just combined the three top stories of Friday into one blog title.  ZOMG. It’s a busy sports weekend, with a full plate of basketball and football to satiate even the most hardened baseball fan.  By the way, let me repeat what I’ve told several people this week.  Read more…

2009-10 NBA Previewapolooza: Western Conference

The West has for almost ten seasons now, been the marquee conference of the NBA. Since 1999, a team from the West has won eight of the past 11 NBA Championships, including two separate mini-dynasties in San Antonio and Los Angeles. Despite last year’s NBA Champion coming from the West in 2009, many are picking a team from the East to make it to the very top. To simply assume this however, ignores the gauntlet that is the Western Conference of the NBA. Ahead, we have the preview for all 15 teams and finally a prediction of how the upcoming NBA post-season will pan out.

2009-10 NBA Previewapolooza: Eastern Conference

October 27, 2009 Leave a comment


In the 1980’s, the NBA was ruled by a small group of dominant teams that clashed epically against each other while feasting on the weaker teams in between. As defenses grew more advanced and used the rules of the era to stifle scoring, the parody increased dramatically, culminating in an eighth seed New York, reaching the NBA Finals against San Antonio in the strike-shortened 1998-1999 season.

But since then, the rules have steadily changed in the new century to bolster scoring and give the stars a chance to shine, the game has shifted back to only a few powerhouses vs. a league full of pretenders. Read more…

Brandon Marshall: Local Idiot

August 28, 2009 1 comment

There’s a lot to be said for just how stupid wide receivers in the NFL can be. If Michael Irvin smoking crack was a nine and Donte Stallworth killing a man while drunk behind the wheel of a car was a ten, than this next chapter of, “As Brandon Marshall Ruins His Career” has to at least be a seven, right?

Unbelievable. I have seen countless amazing events recapped on Sportscenter or read about them after the fact, but I can count only a handful of meaningful events that I have had the pleasure of seeing live: Sam Perkins game winning three-pointer against the Bulls in Game 1 of the 1991 NBA Finals, Magic Johnson’s memorable MVP performance in the All-Star game in Orlando, Tyus Edney’s full court sprint to the basket to give UCLA the win over Missouri in the 1995 NCAA Tournament, and Derek Fisher’s 0.4 shot against the Spurs.

But I had never seen anything truly special live in baseball until today… Read more…

Grading the NBA Offseason Moves

Picture 2

I remember as recently as last year when people didn’t really care about the NBA 0ffseas0n past the first week of July. The draft and big free agent signings would happen and then the action would pretty much be done until October. But this offseason has been wonderfully different. Mix one cup of bad economy, a spoonful of horrible team management, drop in some opportunistic teams trying to be the next, “team to beat” and you have the recipe for one of the most exciting offseasons ever. We’ll update you as more moves are made, grading the notables on a scale from zero basketballs (worthless move) to five (best possible move to make based on needs and improvement) and keep you in the know for the 2009-2010 NBA season.
