Your First Look at Lebron on the Nets

With only two years until Lebron becomes a free agent, and with every passing day it seems it is more likely for him to become a Net, I thought it would be fun to do this:

What do you think?
I think he looks pretty good as a Net.

The Next Athlete to "Grace" Dancing With the Stars is...

...Warren Sapp. That right, all 300 pounds of him. On the next season, Sapp will partake in all sorts of dancing.

It may just be me but I don't think it will be all that easy trying to move all of those lbs. Warren, don't make a fool out of you self. Go to the booth, do a nutri-system commercial, but please not this.

I'll be gone for the next day or so. I should be back by late Sunday. Hang tight.

Bulgaria: The Land of Tiny Balls

Bulgaria has pulled the plug on its' weightlifting team. Ivailo Filev, Demir Demirev, Mehmed Fikretov, Ivan Stoitsov, Georgi Markov, Ivan Markov, Alan Tsagaev, Velichko Cholakov, Milka Maneva, Donka Mincheva and Gergana Kirilova all were members of the Bulgarian weightlifting team. News just in today, they all tested positive for steroids. Wow. 11 people. Not only was it most of the weightlifting team, that is most of Bulgaria.
These Bulgarians are known for cheating.
Take a look at the Italian flag.

Now take a look at the Bulgarian flag.

Very tricky Bulgaria. You think we wouldn't notice. If they cheat at making their flag, why wouldn't they cheat at weightlifting?
Pssh. Flipping the flag and changing the colors around will not fool me.

Is MLB 2K8 Kidding Me?

Get a load of this.

I have played games with glitches, but I have never seen anything like this before. If you've played this game you know how glitchy it is. This is just ridiculous.

To Da House: Best Returns For TD Ever

10. Kevin Cobb- this one falls to the bottom because people thought he was down

9. Desean Jackson- this one also falls because he didn't really break tackles but is still amazing

8. Devin Hester-broke a few tackles gave a stiff arm and cut back in for the TD. Wow.

7. Brandon Tate- broke 4 tackles and took off

6. Darnell Blackman of (insert ESPN's "The Nation" line here)-this man does not stop moving his feet

5. Josh Cribbs- greatly made up for his mistake with this play

4. Dante Hall- like the Jackson play but got around a lot more people

3. Woodrow Dantzler- complete with a couple broken tackles and tight roping the sideline.

2. Darrelle Revis- bonus points for the big hit and surviving the end on the sideline

That last play was great and all, but the next one is RIDICULOUS!(hint)
Take a wild guess who will have #1 play
You guessed it!
1. Devin Hester-this doesn't need explanation

Bonus: Daniel Sepulveda-

Ha you weren't expecting that were you!
In case you were wondering that was the punter on the hit.

More Hester for your viewing pleasure:

Help me out. Did I miss a great play? If I did post a comment let me know and I'll be sure to get to it.

White Sox Must Feel Silly About Willie

Pardon the 3 Chicago posts in a row just bear with me. Willie Harris formerly of the Chicago White Sox (2002-2005), is starting to come through for the Nationals. Don't mind the .200 batting average because he hasn't gotten much playing time. Not only does it seem that Willie has one of the greatest catches in the outfield nearly every month, he is on fire at the plate. In the last two games he hit 3-5 with 2 homers. Not only can this man roam the outfield with ease, but he can also play the infield. Oh, and did I mention that he is a threat on the bases. The aging White Sox could sure use some speed in their line-up right now. Not only does he have more speed than criminal Juan Uribe, but he has more homers also. Sox, would you like a mulligan?

If that doesn't convince you maybe this will:

or this(sorry this is the only place I could find it!):
Willie Harris Robs Carlos Delgado

If my memory serves me, that^^ was the top web gem or play of 2007.

or this:(earlier in the game when he robbed Delgado)
Willie Harris Robs Moises Alou
Update: this is same link as Delgado one but the catch against Alou can be accessed from here.

Jonathan Ordway, are you kidding me?

You may not have heard of Ordway just yet, but you may want to get to know him. I was at the ESPN televised AFL game Dallas @ Chicago and left with 1 minute left in the game because the Chicago Rush were up big. I got home, and to my dismay, I missed something huge. Just watch this vid and you'll see what I'm talking about. First, Devin Hester now Jonathan Ordway. What is in the water in Chicago? What made this event even worse, besides missing it, was that it was Sportcenter's Top Play of Sunday. This man is amazing. Remember the name Jonathan Ordway. You heard it here first.

Update: here's a better way to watch it.

Cubs Dominate Crosstown Classic

With the Cubs sweeping the White Sox over the weekend there is some speculating to do.

Oops! That was a mistake.
Either the Sox are not as good as their record shows, or the Cubs are what we thought they were plus more. Don't get me wrong, most people expected the Cubs to win the series. But did people expect the Cubs to come out and win this solidly ( except for first game)? The Cubs out scored the Sox 22-11 in the series. Is the AL central weaker than we thought?

About Time

Yesterday, our namesake got his first win since mid April. He now "improves" to 2-9.
With that record, it gets you thinking. Where's Ubaldo's control?
Congrats Ubaldo!

Are the Blue Jays kidding me?

As I was watching ESPN, I saw at the bottom of the screen that the Jays fired their manager which was no surprise. Following that though was also the firings of the hitting coach, 1st base coach, and 3rd base coach. What? I can understand the hitting coach too but not firing both the first and third base coach. Is that really necessary? Were they fired for not waving their arms vigorously enough. Or perhaps they didn't stay inside the coaches box. I really don't get it. With all of them fired except basically the bench coach there was something really wrong that we don't know about.

Do you hear squishy noises from your knee?

Oh, you don't? Well apparently Tiger Woods did during the U.S. Open over the weekend. After a tweak in his swing years back, more torque was added to his left knee. By adding more distance to his drives he also was constantly wearing down his acl.

Here's analysis of his swing changes.

Anywhoo, that is just nasty. I never hear noises from my knee I don't know about you. The news is that he has decided to take the advice from the doctors and get surgery to repair the acl that was nearly gone. Like we had any doubt but, Tiger is officially a warrior. The surgery will keep him out for the rest of the season and leave him time to spend with this:

Charles Barkley makes fun of Sam Cassel: Follow Up

In case you missed it.

That was Sir Charles calling Sam Cassel Gollum. There are also comparisons of Sam Cassel to ET.

This just in: Sam Cassel has a ring. Charles Barkley has none. That's funny. I was joking around about Pau Gasol, but this does not sound like a joke. Whatever Sam Cassel does look like, he has more rings than Barkley. I hope Cassel leaves a nice imprint with his new ring on Charles's forehead. In the mean time, Cassel can win another ring and Barkley can acquire more gambling debt. Sounds good to me.

Why did they give the trophy to this schmo?

There are three possible options for who the hell this man is. Wycliffe Grousbeck, Stephen Pagliuca, or H. Irving Grousbeck. I have never heard of any of these guys so why should they the the trophy? Sure they could be the owners, but I would much rather have someone who I actually know hoist up the trophy for the first. Take a look.

Isn't that just awkward?

With championship on line, Lakers play like HS team

It was July 31st, 2007 when the whole world saw a much brighter future for the Celtics. GM Danny Ainge made two earth shaking trades. He received Ray Allen from Seattle and Kevin Garnett from Minnesota. Both were aging veterans who both were tired of their losing careers and neither had won a title. Paul Pierce, who dodged trade rumors in Boston, was paired with KG and Allen and were quickly dubbed the "Big 3". Ainge was not done changing the team though. James Posey, P.J. Brown, Sam Cassel would all arrive in Boston as well. With only 24 wins in the 06-07 season many people in Boston were calling for coach Doc Rivers to be fired. The season started with many critics questioning how PG Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins would keep up with the ability of the other three starters. At season's end both had bloomed into treats and not just the other two guys in the starting line-up. The Celtics made a record breaking turnaround and finished with 66 wins.

The 6th game of the Finals started with Boston leading 3-2 over LA. It ended with the Celtics as the champions. Ray Allen finished with 20 3's total in the Finals which broke a record. he also finished with 7 3's in Game 6 which tied the record of 3's in a Finals game. The Celtics as a team finished with 18 steals which broke a record for steals in a Finals game. The final score was Celtics 131- Lakers 92. No that's not a typo, the Celtics beat the Lakers by 39 points. 39! That margin of victory was only 2 points short of the record 42 points that the Bulls beat the Jazz by in a 1998 Finals game. Obviously, this game was not even close. With 4:55 left in the game the crowd was already singing Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!

In Phil Jackson's press conference his voice was nearly nullified by the noise of the fans that were still celebrating in stands. That sums up the series. The Lakers were over-powered by the Celtics. In all of Game 6, the Lakers grabbed only 2 offensive rebounds. No, that's not a typo either. They were terrible on defense also. Glen "Big Baby" Davis,
was past the ball at half court and "flew" by all of the Lakers and proceeded to jam it on some dude's dome. A man that big should not be able to breeze past all of the defenders like he did (289 lbs.). All in all, the Lakers did not deserve to be on the court.

Chicago Bears RB Graveyard

Cedric Benson (2005-2007)
Curtis Enis (1998-2000)
Rashaan Salaam (1995-1997)
May all of these terrible backs rest in peace.


Ok. I may have been harsh when I called Pau Gasol, Mr. Ugly. I apologize. At 7' he does look a bit like Big Bird though.

Is that a stretch?

Funniest... Thing... Ever...

Seems to be a drunk Texas Tech fan up in the stands. Hilarious! Just watch believe me.

"I paid to get in the game I can say whatever I want.
I crack up every time I see this.

NBA Finals

Kobe and Mr. Ugly (aka Pau Gasol) try not to blow another lead. This time it could cost them the 'ship.
