*Whitney Houston dead - Whatever. I have never felt sympathy for crackheads and I don't see why I would start now. My only feeling about this is that Kevin Costner has failed yet again. Some shitty bodyguard he is.
*LINsanity is officially annoying - Who could have guessed that ESPN would take a pretty good story, prematurely blow it WAY out of proportion, and then make the world turn on a kid that deservedly has earned praise. The 13-15 Knicks (still terrible, mind you) led off Sportscenter every day this past weekend due to their Asian point guard that they were forced to play. Guess what: the Knicks are still bad and Jeremy Lin will go back to being a nothing once Carmelo and Amare come back and take every shot. So enjoy it now because those two ballhogs are going to kill off Yellow Fever very soon. By the way, Worldwide Leader, Kyrie is better than Lin and Rubio, start reporting this.
*The Cavs are done - When news broke on Saturday that Anderson Varejao broke his wrist on Friday night (caused by goddamn Drew Gooden), it effectively ended the season for the Cavs. Andy is out indefinitely which I would guess is anywhere from 6-10 weeks. This team has almost zero depth (Harangody!) and can not afford to have their few good players get hurt. It was a bad week for Byron Scott and Co. Oh well, it was a fun 25 games but now it is time to start focusing on lottery position. Let's unload Razor Ramon and Jamison, let the young guys learn on the job, and get some more balls in the lotto. The pieces are there for the future, that is for sure.
*Sparty owns the Fuckeyes at everything - What a pleasant surprise it was to see Tom Izzo come to town and end Ohio's long home court winning streak Saturday. It was an ugly ass game, but Sparty continues to beat the shit out of Ohio no matter what sport it is. By the way, was it just me or was ESPN's HD feed fucking awful during this? It was all choppy at the Mansion. Congrats to Jared Sullinger on his triple-double (TEN turnovers!). We've said it before but it bears repeating: Matta's team is ELITE defensively but this offense probably can't go on a 6 game winning streak come March. The troof hurts.
*Bow down to the 'brow - I haven't watched a ton of Kentucky this year, but it's hard to ignore that Anthony Davis averages almost FIVE blocks per game. That is ELITE. I don't know if the kid is big enough (muscles) to go #1 overall, but he is a lock for top 3. And if the Bobcats (AWFUL) get the #1, it's hard to see them taking someone that plays the same position as Byron James Mullens.
*Next stop: NOT the Hall of Fame - The Steelers are finally going to release Hines Ward. That makes sense since he's terrible. It's funny that Ward is begging them to resign him to a lesser deal just so he can stay with the team. Fuck him.
*Next stop: Pittsburgh? - Everyone is reporting that the Yankees and Pirates are closing in on a deal that will send AJ Burnett to the bottom of the NL Central. Obviously, the Yankees will eat a lot of money on this and have asked for slugger Garrett Jones in return for doing this (which would be a nice addition). The Pirates are balking at this though. But it appears that AJ's days are over in The Bronx. Now, most Yankees fans truly despise Burnett but I don't. Sure, they way overpaid the guy but he helped win a World Series and was a pretty decent big game pitcher over the years. So if he is gone this week, I will just remember his excellent playoff starts from 2009. But it is pretty LOL that they are going to pay someone 25 million to take AJ off of their hands.
*Next stop: Southside! - I think that we all are hoping that Gunner Kiel's college years are similar to what happened to Mitch Mustain. Mustain was a piece of shit throughout his joke of a football career and now he has signed with the White Sox. Mr. Ace already bought a MUSTAIN t-shirt jersey.
That about covers it for today. I see that that Diggs asshole committed to Maryland which makes him the first cat not to get brainwashed by The Urbantaker. Whatevs, there better be some awesome Dut/rodeo jokes today. Don't let me down.
