NFL Concussion Documentary Omitting the Obvious???

I’m the first person to hammer the NFL, the Walmart of the American Sports Industry ; but PFT points out what League of Denial overlooked…

Six Pack of Thoughts – First Weekend of NCAA Tournament

March 21, 2012

With the initial two rounds of the NCAA Tournament (I refuse to comply with the NCAA calling the 5th through 36th game the “second round”) behind us, here are some of my thoughts :  (more…)

Let’s All Feel Sorry for the NFL’s Golden Boy Peyton Manning

March 8, 2012

Peyton Manning was released by the Colts yesterday. Poor lil fella. Predictably, ESPN led the crotch-nuzzling.

You would have thought he retired, with all the attention he is getting. I heard an ESPN voice (and former QB) say he “deserved better”.

He deserved better? He was paid $25 million this year to play quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts sit on the couch like you and me.

He talked Indy into NOT putting him on IR in September. Instead of a 53-man roster, the Colts operated with a 52-man roster the ENTIRE YEAR. That’s not selfish at all.    (more…)

ESPN – The Entertainment & Sports Promotion Network

March 5, 2012

What do Danica Patrick and UConn coach Gino Auriemma have in common? I would say three things:

1) They are all over SportsCenter

2) I had to google them to find out how they spell their names.

3) No real sports fan gives a crap about either of them.

Last year, the 4-letter network’s coverage was over the top comparing UConn’s winning streak to UCLA men’s record.

Hey ESPN – they play with a different size ball. IT’S NOT THE SAME GAME.   (more…)

Dallas Mavericks – 2011 NBA Chumps

February 29, 2012

Who won the 2011 NBA title? Was it:

Kobe and the Lakers – no that was 2009 and 2010.

Oh I got it, it was those Spurs led by that all-time great Tim Duncan – sorry, no.

Was it the NBA’s greatest franchise, the Boston Celtics, they won number 18 right? Wrong again.

It was Oklahoma City, led by the league’s youngest star Kevin Durant. No, what the heck?

Oh yeah I almost forgot, it was the Miami Heat – they won the title in July 2010, that’s what almost everyone said anyway. No no no, why I am so confused?      (more…)

Kevin Hart is the Funniest Man Alive?

Kevin Hart Drives against TIM Hardaway

You may or may not agree with that opinion but it’s a fact that he is a fool.

Last night was the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, the annual curtain-raiser for the NBA’s All-Star Weekend; a game of actors, singers, rappers, television personalities, NBA Legends, male athletes from other sports, and usually a WNBA star or two. The game was a classic East vs West battle.

The West team boasted the old Golden State Warriors trio, Run TMC (Tim Hardaway, Mich Richmond, and Chris Mullin). Other notable stars were JB Smoove, Ne-Yo, and Common – who is not an NBA player but played one on TV. Common and the East’s J Cole had a head-to-head battle that was dominated by J Cole, as he invited him into “Cole World.”   (more…)

This was ESPN Mobile’s Lead Headline for 35 min Last Night

February 18, 2012

Yes, you read that correctly.

Courtesy of the always awesome Deadspin, ESPN ran that headline on ESPN Mobile from 2:30 to 3:05 EST this morning. Shortly afterwards, the apology came:    (more…)
