Football has dominated the talk around here for months now but since that is ending, we should check in on the other sports to see what it going on.
*College Basketball! - I'm really struggling to get into it this year. My alma mater is terrible and the game seems to be lacking ELITE white males and thus my interest is at an all-time low. When boring ass Virginia is the #2 team, that isn't helping. Plus, Ohio and WE ON don't appear to be have a big run in them. Dullsville, bruh.
*Hockey! - I pretty much only follow the Jackets but I do have to say that the goddamn Islanders are really fucking impressive. Them and Nashville are the two teams that just obliterated the CBJ from start to finish and that doesn't happen often. As for the CBJ, the early season injuries killed them and they won't be able to dig out of the hole this year. The rest of the East got way better while we spent most of the first half averaging 7 guys on the shelf PER GAME. I still love these guys because they play their asses off and won't quit and additional gritty sports cliches, but they need to play .700 hockey the rest of the way and I don't see that being possible. Carry It nonetheless!
*Golf! - Outside of Tiger Woods' hilarious meth teeth, the big story from the weekend was the Hawaiian abduction of Robert Allenby from a wine bar. Cowherd was questioning the truth behind this odd tale yesterday and I'm starting to poke holes in this as well. I'm calling this guy out as a liar. Pretty sure that Allenby is a serial rapist of homeless people and finally met one that fought back IMO. Also: LOL Tiger's missing tooth.
*Baseball! - We briefly touched on the Max Scherzer signing on Monday but the parameters of this deal are fascinating. Baseball people are saying that paying him 15 million a year for 14 years is smart but that seems pretty dumb to me. Then again, I'm no nerd. I would try to front-load as much of that as possible just to get it out of the way. I hope that the Reds fans are paying attention to this because you should start preparing for no more Cueto. He isn't going to make Max money, but it is definitely going to be more than what you offer. And now that teams are doing this deferred money plan, the rich are only going to get richer.
*NBA! - Last but not least, let's talk about my rejuvenated Cavs who look like an entirely different team now. Mozgov and JR Smith have been fantastic additions (TIMOFEY has been well worth the low first round picks if he keeps playing like this). LeBron looks focused and is actually trying. Kyrie and Love are slowly playing a little bit better defense. Blatt is setting on player rotations. Shumpert should be back any day now to bolster the perimeter defense. Things are trending up for sure. I know that Lacey will chide me for cocking off about a game in January, but they beat the piss out of the Bulls the other night. It was never close. I've always said that I'm OK with losses as long as the effort is there. When the Cavs play with the kind of effort that they showed against the Bulls and Clippers, no one in the East can beat them in a series. No one. Sorry, Dawg, but your Hawks are peaking too early. I'm feeling good about this team now and they are starting to become pretty fun to watch. THE DIFF! Also, we made Derrick Rose's pussy lips cry after the game...LOLZ!
I got through everything that I wanted to today but feel free to discuss anything and everything non-football. This is my final post for the week as you get a BONUS ICEMAN RANT on Friday. He's had this one locked and loaded for months so you know that it is bad.
