Who You Gonna Blame If Mayweather Pacquiao Doesnt Happen?

The Mayweather/Mosley fight last Saturday night turned out to be a total let down. The hype and promotion was top notch, but after the second round, the outcome was never really in doubt. From a business perspective, it was a smashing success. From the fans perspective, it sucked.

Naturally one would think a Super Fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao should be next, but something tells me neither side will be willing to budge when it comes to drug tests.

Pacquiao claims random blood testing within 24 days of the fight will give Mayweather an edge. Not sure why he thinks that, but Floyd isnt likely to budge. And after the success of the Mosley fight, I dont think he should. If Pacquiao really wants the fight, he should accept the random tests. But I dont expect that to happen anytime soon.

The NFL’s New “Captain of the God Squad”

Kurt Warner retired last winter, vacating his position as the reigning Captain of the God Squad in the NFL. But fear not, for the Denver Broncos selected Tim Tebow with the 25th pick over all, thereby filling the post. The Legend of Tebow is great, but so too is the Legend of Elway. Those are some big shoes to fill, and no one has been able to fill them since Elway retired.

Can Tim Tebow be the guy? Only time will tell. But if the kid cn practically walk on water, why wouldnt he be able to win games in the NFL?

Big Ben & Tiger… That’s All I Missed?

Okay, so I was away for a couple weeks and, as such, missed some really big stories from the world of sports. The biggies were Tigers return to the Masters, where he played quiet well despite his own overblown expectations.

And of course the other big story was that Big Ben Roethlisberger avoided going to the big house when the DA down south decided not to file sexual assault charges. Though he wont be serving any jail time, the Commish is sure to put the smack down on him with a several game suspension next season. Dont be surprised if the Rooneys pull a Santonio with Big Ben. Then again, who would want that kind of baggage?

Urban Meyer’s Apology Disappoints

Last week Urban Meyer had a PR nightmare on his hands when he publicly emasculated Jeremy Fowler of the Orlando Sentinel. The outburst was caught on tape, and soon, it spread across the internet. Talking heads everyone castigated the Florida coach for stepping over the line.

His way of repairing the situation was to have a private conversation with the reporter whereby he was able to explain himself. Fowler accepted his apology, but afterwards, Meyer refused to face the media. From my point of view, that was a big mistake. The right thing to do is to offer a public apology. After all, he embarrassed and threatened the man in public, so why not apologize in Public?

Gilbert Arenas Receives Just Sentence

We all know that Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton were stupid to bring weapons to their place of work. And though the court could have thrown the book at him, Arenas was only sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house, two years probation and 400 hours of community service.

Some may think he got off easy but considering the plea deal Crittenton received, it wouldve been wrong to punish him more. After all, both were at fault here, but only Arenas suffered the public scorn and humiliation. Sure, he brought a lot of it on himself by not taking the situation seriously. Still, the media attention made it seem like Arenas was the only one who brought a gun with him to work. And that simply was not the case.

Big Ben Still Not Talking, Probably Never Will

Its going on three weeks since this story broke, and amazingly the Police still havent spoken with Ben Roethlisber. They did, however, rescind their request for a sample of his DNA. And now the woman who filed the complaint against him is reportedly refusing to give a follow up statement to the Police.

But one person who will soon be speaking with the Steelers QB is NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Whether Big Ben is innocent or guilty, one thing the commish will certainly convey is his intolerance for players casting the league in a negative light.

Brackets May Be Busted, But I’m Lovin’ The Madness

The first two rounds of the 2010 NCAA Tournament have been overrun with upsets. And though my brackets are officially busted (I bet youre pretty much in the same boat), I have enjoyed the drama.

So at this point I say keep it coming. Lets see Cornell or Northern Iowa in the Final Four. Heck, for that matter, lets see one of them in the title game! Now that would be exciting.

Reviewing The Tiger Woods Interviews

As we all know, Tiger Woods is making a comeback. Next month he is set to resume his career at the Masters. But someone in his camp was smart enough to realize that he couldn’t just show up at Augusta National without fielding a few questions first.

Thus, two interviews, five minutes each, no restrictions on the questions that would be asked. The end result was both pleasing and surprising. It was the best thing he could do to “humanize” himself, and in turn, start the healing process for both his fans and sponsors.

Tiger’s Rough Week

Filed under Other Sports, SRG's Blog

For Tiger Woods, the week started on such a high note. Considering how things had been going the past few months, it was a welcome relief to be receiving so much positive press. After all, the greatest golfer of our generation had made it official… he was making his tour return at the Masters, the site of his first major victory nearly 13 years ago.

Sure, some sports radio pundits were bashing Tiger for the bold faced lies he told at his news conference last month. He told the world his career would have to take a backseat to repairing his marriage. But that seemed to last all of about two weeks before he was out on the range, training for his eventual return. Most of us, however, have been clamoring for him to get back out on the tour, if only to begin the process of putting this ugly chapter to rest.

But then the week took a turn for the worse. First, one of Tiger’s alleged former mistresses (porn actress Joslyn James) decided the time was right to release hundreds of old text messages she received from Tiger while they were carrying on their affair. Of course she had to wait until she got her own website up and running(sextingjoslynjames.com), but one has to wonder why this wasn’t done months ago. Now it just seems to be the act of a desperate and bitter woman.

If that weren’t bad enough, a line of sex toys bearing Tiger’s name and likeness recently hit the shelves of your local adult video stores. Tiger Sex Dolls, Giant Condoms and other kinky items are being sold by Pipedream Products. Naturally Woods’ attorneys sent Pipedream a letter demanding the products be recalled and destroyed. But that’s a little like trying to put the genie back in the bottle. At this point, the damage is done.

And perhaps not so coincidentally, Elin Nordegren has been M.I.A. from the Woods estate the last few days. I guess she’s not down with being humiliated all over again.

Like the saying goes, “fool me once, shame on… shame on… you………. Fool me, you can’t get fooled again.”
Those are sage words, Mr. President.
