I may have missed the big upset of USC a couple weeks ago, but I sure didn’t miss this week’s upsets! Ole Miss, Penn State and Cal… not to mention Miami! Wow, what a weekend of college football!
…but after learning what they were fighting over, I’m left scratching my head.
I realize I’m treading on very thin ice here, commenting on how a woman looks. Being a woman myself, and one who has received negative comments in the past regarding my appearance, I don’t want to come across as mean spirited, cruel or not understanding.
That said, when I began this blog post over an hour ago, I did a rather exhaustive internet search for images of “sexy KU coeds.” Disregarding all the pornographic results, this was the best image I could find.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying she isn’t attractive (how could I tell… it’s a terrible picture). But really? This is the best “sexy” pic that’s out there for KU girls? If you search nearly any other school you’ll find countless images of hot coeds…
Like the FSU girls.
Or the Oklahoma girl.
Or even the Michigan State girl.
So come on KU! Let’s get it together and put a few “safe for work” pics out there to showcase some of your hot girls! I know you have them. Even this girl would do if the picture was taken in better light and she was wearing a tight or low cut shirt. That’s all it takes.
Because if you do that, then the whole fighting between football and basketball players over girls and jealousy thing… well, at least all that makes sense.
After looking beat down by the end of last season, it’s no surprise the Great One decided Enough was Enough!
With the Coyotes bankruptcy proceedings dragging on, and it clear to all that neither remaining party ivolved had a place for him in their future plans, Wayne Gretzky made it official and stepped down Wednesday morning as head coach and director or hockey opperations.
So what’s next for Greatsky? Hopefully something that returns a smile to his face, because for one, I was growing tired of watching him do a job that he clearly didn’t want to do anymore.
Here’s some free advice, Wayne… Go hang out with that still hot wife of yours and enjoy yourselves. Because life is far too short to be miserable when you really don’t have to be!
As in The Franchise, Mark Sanchez!
As corny as it sounds, that’s exactly what his teammates have started calling him after his un-rookie like performance last weekend. Then again, it was against the Texans, so you know… take that for what it’s worth.
But I do find the name funny. Almost as funny as this picture of him at the beach. Don’t get me wrong, Sanchize is HOT (I may be the Sports Report Girl, but I’m still a girl)!
No, what’s funny about this pic is the sexy model posing with him… but more specifically, where she’s staring! I mean come on, she’s burning a hole right through his crotch!
Not that there’s anything wrong with that! It just makes me laugh.
Mark “Super” Sanchize is more like it!
Here’s the YouTube video of the Posada/Carlson/Bench & Dugout clearing brawl from Tuesday night. It’s a feed from TSN and it’s almost nine and half minutes long… which is great if you want to see all the little details SportsCenter leaves out. But to get right to the action, skip ahead to the 2:41 mark for a good replay of how it all started.
One of my favorite moments is the shot of Hedeki Matsui staring off into the stands at 1:54. Meanwhile the melee is still being sorted out the other direction.
Makes me wonder what’s going through that guys head at a time like that?
Hello! There’s a brawl going on over here, and you’re busy scoping some piece of ass in the stands? Nice!
It started last Friday night when, at the induction ceremony for the Basketball Hall of Fame, Michael Jordan was taking pot shots at his former boss. It carried over into the weekend when Serena Williams let lose a tirade of threats and four letter words after being called on a foot fault. And it culminated Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards when, like the douche bag he is, Kanye West stole the microphone from Taylor Swift and pronounced to the entire world that Beyonce’s video deserved to win.
So what ever happened to civility? These aren’t isolated incidents in the worlds of Sports and Entertainment. Just look what happened to President Obama last week. In your wildest dreams, could you ever have imagined a U.S. Representative heckling the President during a joint session of Congress?
It’s like half the people out there have forgotten how to be polite, gracious and respectful! Are we such a backwards society now that those traits are viewed as signs of weakness? I understand that the “We” generation became the “Me” generation, but sadly it seems like the “Me” generation is now the “Fuck You!” generation.
I hope I’m wrong… but sadly, I don’t think I am.
Last week, before the first game of season kicked off in Pittsburgh, I read a feature in the Los Angeles Times Sports page about LaDainian Tomlinson. The bottom line of the article was simply this… LT was desperate for the season to begin so he could prove his critics wrong.
Okay, I get that. After his lackluster performance last year, I would expect nothing less. And in the article he spoke about how his increased knowledge of the game was going to compensate for his age and diminishing physical talents. He was so passionate and eloquent I actually started feeling good about having him on my fantasy keeper league.
Visions of the old LT were creeping into my head. I started to believe I might once again win my league behind a 1,700 yard, 20 plus touch down season from the San Diego Super Chargers Star Running Back!
Then I watched Monday Night Football and realized two things…
One, that Norv Turner is the coach in San Diego, not Marty Schottenheimmer. Long gone are the glory days when LT would carry the ball 25 to 30 times a game, allowing him to wear defenses down in the fourth quarter.
And two, the Star Running Back of the San Diego Super Chargers is named Darren Sproles… and I don’t have him on my roster.
In that LA Times article, Tomlinson compared himself to Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, saying that he was not yet a complete back like himself… that Tomlinson could run, block and catch, and most importantly, didn’t have to come out on passing downs.
Hmmm. Well, for those who might have missed it, LT was no where to be found during third down situations Monday Night. But Sproles was.
So… if it wasn’t completely clear before… it definitely is now. Early last season the Chargers became Phillip Rivers’ team, and early this year, Sproles became their running back.
A double dose of True Freshmen dominate the biggest games from last week. Looking ahead, we have a slew of games to look forward to, including Georgia Tech at Miami, Florida State at BYU and Boise State at Fresno State. Oh yeah… and there’s this other little game… Tennessee at Florida????
You’ve probably heard that the greatest baller of all time is being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame Friday night, along with other former greats David Robison, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan. Oh yeah, there’s also a women’s college basketball coach being inducted too, but really, who cares? Sorry Vivian!
This may be the most decorated class to enter the Hall in decades. But what I find interesting is the list of presenters.
Jordan has David Thompson?
Stockton has Isiah Thomas?
Jerry Sloan has Sir Charles?
And Robinson has George Gervin?
Okay, that last one actually makes sense. But the others seem kind of odd to me. I realize new inductees are obliged to ask current members of the Hall to present them, but really, John Stockton couldn’t think of anyone better then Isiah Thomas? And Michael goes with his childhood idol instead of Dean Smith or Phil Jackson? And what does Charles Barkley have to do with Jerry Sloan?
I don’t know, the whole thing seems kind of odd. Then again, combining men and women, both pro and amateur, into one Hall of Fame is kind of odd too, right?
That’s right, I said it. Tonight Derek Jeter, who is currently tied with Lou Gehrig at 2,721 hits, will surpass that mark and become the all time hits leader in Yankee history. I mean come on, they’re playing the Orioles for crying out loud. He’ll probably blow the record away.
But that got me wondering how the most decorated franchise in baseball history has never had a player reach 3,000 hits entirely as a Yankee. Seems odd, doesn’t it? I mean there are only 27 players in the 3,000 hit club, but nine of them played their entire careers with only one team… and none of those nine were Yankees.
That’s until Derek gets there, because we all know he’s going to. Congratulations Captain… even if it is a bit premature.
