|Enjoy this nightmare|
*I've done "absolutely nothing wrong" - This weekend was a big one here in Columbus as The Memorial was played. I have no idea who won because I'm writing this Sunday morning and it doesn't matter anyway. The fun news is that Phildo Mickelcock is being investigated by the FBI for insider trading. LOL! Dude is so guilty. I have a source at the SEC (ELITE speed on this non-existent person) and he says that Phil will spend the rest of his life in prison. He is guilty as sin. Remember how people hate Tiger for being a terrible husband and a surly competitor? At least he isn't cheating on AMERICA. Phil Mickelson is pretty much a terrorist IMO.
*The NBA Finals are set - Rematch, NOGG! I'm pretty excited for this one for the same reasons that I probably stated last year. Ape is already GUARANSHEEDing a Spurs title which is ballsy and could never backfire. We should all root for the Spurs anyway because if the Heat lose, the likelihood of LeBron shitting all over those terrible Miami fans is much greater. Also, if you root for the Heat, Smiling Pop will haunt you forever. I am picking Miami to 3peat though and if this works as a jinx then I am perfectly fine with that.
*About the Conference Finals losers... - For the Thunder, we all know that Kevin Durant has a tendency to shrink in the clutch and that Scott Brooks is a below average game manager, but I blame Sam Presti who is always considered an ELITE GM. When your team is playing Derek Fisher down the stretch then you haven't given them enough talent. OKC was playing the entire second half on Saturday 4 on 5. As far as the Pacers go, I'm glad to see that Frank Vogel is keeping his job because this is NOT his fault. They have to let Lance walk. George Hill stinks and Roy Hibbert needs to find his balls. Outside of Paul George and David West, everyone on that roster is expendable. The Pacers are a mess.
*MLB needs to fix this - OK, so if you aren't the biggest baseball fan, let me tell you how free agency works for the bigger names hitting the market. Their previous team can offer them some sort of one year contract before FA begins. That player almost always declines it because a bigger pay day is coming. Once that is declined, they player comes at a cost. The signing team has to surrender their first round draft pick. For instance, the Yankees had to give up their first this year to Boston by signing Ellsbury. These conditions were put on marginal guys like Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. The Red Sox ended up re-signing Drew a week or two ago. Morales is still not playing. Why? Because no one wants to give up their pick for him and that condition ends once the draft happens this week. This IS STUPID. Once the season starts, that condition should cease to exist. FYI, Morales is going to sign with the Yankees about a second after the Draft starts because Teix just hurt his limp wrist AGAIN.
*Just throw Josh Gordon in prison already - The guy who is clearly not a top 5 receiver got pulled over recently and of course there was marijuana in his hoopty. His bro took the fall as cronies are expected to do but we're not dumb. Gordon has learned nothing. If he wasn't so goddamn talented, the Browns should cut his ass. The problem is that he is really talented and keeps embarrassing himself and the organization.
*Who beats the Rangers for The Cup? - Game 7 in the West was last night and this Kings/Blackhawks has been all sorts of terrific. I can't imagine the Rags beating either of them without Lundqvist putting together a once in a lifetime miracle series. I hate the fucking Rangers.
That will do it for me today. Did you pick up super-stud prospect Oscar Taveras for your fantasy baseball team yet because I DID. DEAL WITH IT. Good things happen when you're sitting at home on a Friday night watching the MLB Network! Stay tuned for Ide's breakdown of the Red Viper/Mountain fight to the death! SMILING POPOVICH WILL TUCK YOU IN TONIGHT!
