The NFL season is proving once again to be a strange one. Kansas City Chiefs undefeated through September? Chicago Bears? Who the hell is Arian Foster? Even Darren McFadden (R) has started earning his paycheck!
All we need now is for a contender to sign JaMarcus Russell, have their starter get hurt and him take them to the playoffs for this to be the official beginning of Bizzaro Season 2010.
I’m beginning to think that Lindsey Lohan has to drive naked down the Pacific Coast Highway with a few kilos of Colombian white in her trunk, at least two (2) bodies on the backseat of her convertible while waving the murder weapon in the air to get arrested and really spend time in jail?
I’m just saying…..most other people would have been halfway through their sentences already, and she’s still tweeting!
Even Iron Man (L) went to jail, but she doesn’t?
I am very happy to see Michael Vick playing exceptionally well with The Philadelphia Eagles this season. He was involved in some heinous stuff, got caught, did his time and is making the best of his second chance at a career. I hope he stays out of trouble and I hope he continues to play well.
Manchester City showed last week that it has the fortitude to go toe to toe with the big boys and beat them too, but can they do it week in and week out? I think they can and i’ll say it again; the two best teams in England are Chelsea and Manchester City.
Manchester United is slipping, Arsenal needs help, Tottenham doesn’t have enough of everything and Liverpool is what they’ve been for the past few years-also rans.
In Italy, this may be the year, after 5 straight years as Serie A champions that Inter Milan is dethroned as kings of Italy. AC Milan added Robiniho to an already loaded squad, while Roma, who chased Inter all last season, is playing very well early on. I still believe that Inter Milan is the best team in Italy and should make it six in a row.
This is supposedly the year of the pitcher, no-hitters being thrown on average once a month, blah, blah blah….but some morons in the media want us to think that Felix Hernandez (R)
a barely .500 pitcher deserves the Cy Young award? Seriously?
I don’t care what his ERA is or his run support isn’t, in the year of the pitcher, he has won 13 games and lost 12. For a team that has not played a significant game since 1995. He should not even be in the conversation. Period.
CC Sabathia and David Price are the two best pitchers on the two best teams in the American League. They have pitched in pressure packed games all season long and their teams are deadlocked at the top of the standings.
The Cy Young award should be decided between them, not a marginal pitcher on a very bad team.
If this joke of so-called rhetoric isn’t evidence of the Yankee bias in a large part of the (cough-Bristol, CT cough-ESPN-cough) media, I don’t know what is.
Boise State is a great story, their quarterback is very good, but after watching Alabama, Ohio State, Texas and Oklahoma play, I can say in no uncertain terms-Boise State is not a top-5 team.
The NFL Red Zone network is television crack. It is sports television on steroids. It is, and I’m tearing up here, the best thing to happen to television. Where have you been my whole life?
Whose idea was it to put the VMA’S opposite the season finale of True Blood AND Entourage? Probably the same person that dressed Kanye West. It’s sad when everybody agrees that Lady Gaga dresses better than you.
I’m not that worried about the Yankees recent play. This team was built for the playoffs, and when Andy Pettitte returns to the rotation and they cut Phil Hughes loose from his innings restrictions, they will be primed for a playoff run.
If the Eagles are trying to win this season, they would have had an open competition for quarterback to begin the season. They didn’t; Kevin Kolb was named the starter immediately, signifying the beginning of the rebuilding phase. That means that no matter how Michael Vick, he of the 3 Pro-Bowls, will be not get the starting job full-time this season, no matter how well he plays.
The NY Jets are in trouble for allegedly sexually harassing a female reporter who was at practice to interview Mark Sanchez. I have a tremendous amount of mixed feelings on this issue. I think that this reporter, Ines Sainz (R,) has the right to do her job. She has the right, like any other woman, to dress however she wants whenever she wants. But, but, I also think personal responsibility absolutely comes into play and should.
Because you have the right to dress however you want, going to a NFL team practice dressing like you’re going to a nightclub is probably not a good idea, and considering most other female and male reporters get that concept is telling. There has been very little in the way of a surprise reaction from reporters and athletes alike when told of this story and who the reporter was. Ms. Sainz is a known entity and has been for quite some time; she doesn’t seek a story, she seeks the limelight. Her network is the same that sent another reporter to a Superbowl press conference to propose to Tom Brady.
There is one truism in life: If you always try to bring attention to yourself, you will always get it, and it might not be the attention you want.
That being said, I am truly concerned about the ‘new culture’ of the NY Jets. Rex Ryan has a great football mind, and a very good coach. There is no filter between his brain and his mouth, and that trickles down to his team. Add to that mix, some players of questionable character and you have a volatile mix and more than halfway down the road to a wreck. Whether the situation with the reporter is correct as indicated or not, a warning flag needs to be raised to this team, its management and its owners.
Kevin Durant is poised to have a monster year. Move aside, Kobe and Lebron this kid deserved to be mentioned in the same breath as those two. He is an unbelievable talent and Oklahoma City will be in the upper echelon of NBA teams this season with him leading the way.
