Almost here...

Basketball at the Olympics starts officially on August 9th, 2008.

Even if it's already over.

Bring it, Planet Earth.


Apparently, Emmit Smith is being taken off of Sunday NFL Countdown.

Wait for it.

Wait for it.

Let it come.

...and I, for one, am OUTRAGED.

In an unrelated story, college football starts a month from today. Thank God.

Puffy is Poison

Someone made a list of the worst things ever to happen to hip hop, and listed Puff Daddy somewhere around 5. I say that their list is nonsense.

Puffy has done more to hurt rap than I ever really thought about.

The God Damn Lox.

Same Old Story, With A Twist...

So, another restricted free agent bolted from Atlanta because the Hawks brass was too cheap to lock up the sparkplug sixth man who helped us push the current world champs to seven games, soemthing the Mighty Lakers couldn't do.

Wait a second.

The Hawks WANTED to re-sign him?

They were going to MATCH any offer from a team that wanted him?

They offered him a 36 million dollar deal?

And he's going to play in Greece? What is the world coming to? Of course, he negotiates with a team that Atlanta doesn't even have a chance to match, because they are OUTSIDE THE NBA!!! Plus, how does the sixth man on a (let's be honest) not very good basketball team garner the largest contract in Euroleague history?

Screw it, I'm going to Greece too.

WNBA Brawl

I hope a better video of this shows up...if not, this is the best shot of a hilarious occurrence that no one saw. You know why no one saw it? Because it's the freaking WNBA!!!

I refuse to tag this as sports.


Okay, this is the first time in recorded HISTORY I'm really glad I can't sleep; this 'story' is getting more ridiculous by the second. Now, the story includes Rick Mahorn pushing women to the floor, subsequently getting beat up by OTHER women, and Bill Laimbeer acting as the voice of reason. This is the single DUMBEST sports story of the year, I don't care what happens from here on out. I don't even know which team is which in that video, I just know it's funny.

Catching Up on Sports

- Wow. I normally am a straight up football/basketball/UFC kinda guy, but that Sunday final between Nadal and Federer turned me into a tennis nut all day. I watched rain delays, for God's sake. Sure, it doesn't help that there was absolutely nothing else on, but I was also genuinely transfixed.

- Elton Brand. You know you wrong. At the same time, I can't REALLY hate on the man getting his money, but I wish he'd be honest about it. Donald Sterling couldn't meet because he was on vacation with his family, and that's why you left? C'mon.

- I love summer basketball. The summer leagues in Orlando and Vegas have been transfixing to say the least. The number 1 pick getting pulled because of an injury, the number 2 pick running the entire rest of the Orlando crowd off the court, the number 3 pick hit a half court shot at the buzzer, and the most talked about player is Brook Lopez? Really?

- Speaking of basketball, we're getting closer to watching the US Men own the world one more time. Yes we can!

- Roger Clemens should be dropping that defamation lawsuit any day now as more and more dirt gets pulled up. Is his lawyer working under the table for Brian McNamee?

- All you PGA Tour guys, enjoy the open field until Tiger gets back...it's kinda like throwing a party when someone's parents were out of town in high school: fun, loud, anything goes, but don't leave anything that will show a party happened. And when the parents get back, all you are left with are memories. And the occasional trophy.

- So...Madonna and ARod. Hm.

- Bret Favre, you know you wrong. And the Packers know they wrong too. Just a bunch of stupid acting people in this story. Sure, Favre is in the wrong for unretiring, but it's not like he hasn't waffled on his future before. That's like getting mad at the snake for biting you (see Saban, Nick, and soon Petrino, Bobby).

- Half way through the baseball season...only 1 million games left!

NBA Draft + Free Agency

NBA Draft Talk:

- I love the NBA draft. Love it. Normally, I would have done a running draft blog, but the Hawks didn't have a pick to blow, so I had no real worries.

- I demand Michael Beasley be followed at all times by a camera crew on south beach (the Dwayne Wade - Penny Hardaway article is coming, I swear!)

- Seattle...I mean Oklahoma City took Westbrook with Kevin Love still on the board. How does that make any sense?

- The Suns took Robin Lopez with what would have been the Hawks' pick.

- JaVale McGee is the first son of a WNBA player to be drafted to the NBA. Sometimes, the jokes write themselves, they really do.

- How the good hell did Chris Douglas Roberts last until pick 40?

- Chris Wallace should be arrested.

Let's recap the last six months for Chris: gives away his best player (Pau Gasol) for the rights to his kid brother, and a player who had his career destroyed by the GOAT before ever stepping foot on a court (Kwame Brown). Then, after watching his team 'inexplicably' fail to contend down the stretch, he makes an intelligent draft pick (Kevin Love), only to trade this newly acquired talent AND his current best player (Mark Miller) to Minnesota for ANOTHER athletic guard (O.J. Mayo) and a bunch of terrible contracts. I reiterate:

Chris Wallace should be arrested.

Free agency started, and boy has it been entertaining so far:

- So the Warriors let Baron Davis opt out, and he signed with the Clips? Boy, I bet they feel dumb as hell, huh?

- Trying to avoid THAT situation, the Hornets are extending Chris Paul.

- "Agent Zero" Gilbert "Hibachi" Arenas opted out, but has maintianed that he wants to remain a Wizard...and looking at the cap space of other teams, I believe him.

- The Nets are cleaning out space for LeBron in 2 years...and Richard Jefferson has been shuttled to Milwaukee. Having run into this guy socially in New York, this couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Have fun in Packer Country. Jerk.

- And in further opt out news, Ron Artest, who said on national television that he is happy being a King, is now openly regretting not opting out. Anyone want a headcase on the trading block? Any takers?
