Thoughts for this week

Arsenal showed the heart of a champion today-they rebounded from the loss at Porto and are now challenging for 1st place in England and they routed Porto today. Samir Nasri scored one of the best goals i’ve seen this year.

Great win, I hope they keep this form up.

70 wins and counting-but does anyone really care about Women’s College basketball? I admit, I watch it on occasion, and I think what they may lack in athleticism, they make up for in fundamentals, but it’s clearly a sport with only three or four real dominant powers (UConn, Tennessee, Rutgers and in the past, UCLA) and as such…..is it really relevant?

It does beg the question though-is this the most impressive team winning streak?

I must admit, AC Milan v. Manchester United-David Beckham’s first game in England against the team that made him a star. I think this is going to be even better than the first game 2 weeks ago. Ronaldinho, Beckham, Rooney, Eto’o, Alex Pato…this is going to be something special

And on the subject, I think the Champions League is by far the greatest sports tournament in the world. I think the NCAA Basketball tournament is a close second, but for completely different-one celebrates the best teams and best players in their sport in a tournament within a tournament. The other is fun because of the classic David vs Goliath scenario; the underdogs who make it there and challenge the big boys.

The Lakers don’t look like the best team in basketball anymore. Odom is playing like garbage, Gasol is playing soft (AGAIN) and opposing guards a driving past Fisher like his name is ‘EZ Pass’

Who's Dwight?

Well, for starters, i'm a Jamaican born resident of New York who loves sports, politics, books (reading and writing them) and meaningful debate. I'm also a published author of two books, several short stories and articles-with more on the way-and most importantly i'm never without an opinion. I try to keep abreast of the world around me and look at things from my perspective-which is sometimes irreverent, occasionally funny, frequently frank, and at times downright weird.
