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!
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.
History was made Sunday at the All England Club when Roger Federer beat Andy Roddick, thereby breaking the Grand Slam title tie he held with Pete Sampras. Roddick gave it everything he had, taking it to 5 sets, the final going all the way to a 16 to 14 win for Federer. But does it really mean as much knowing that the best challenger he could face missed the tournament, resting his ailing knees?
And how about Tiger Woods? Sunday was vintage Tiger as he shot a 67 to win his own tournament by one stroke. The most significant moment came after the golf was over, when he flashed a bit of personality and showed he has a sense of humor by partaking in a mock Q&A, interviewing himself as host and winner.
As I’m still nursing a hangover from the 4th, that’s all for today.
See ya manana!
