Typically, this is a down time in the world of sports. The NBA is finally over, most of golf’s majors are done, the chance of a triple crown winner has once again vanquished, and we as a nation are desperately waiting for the upcoming football season. Usually, the only thing that keeps our sporting interest this time of the year are a few MLB pennant races. But lately there have been several intriguing stories to occupy our time.
The NBA had has it’s share of headline news the past few months. The Sterling nightmare is a soap opera/black eye for the league and just won’t go away. Please Donald, sign the sale papers and go to some nursing home where you belong! The summer of big name player movement perked our interest for the last few months. Melo did his dog and pony show only to remain in the Big Apple. I thought it was about winning for him? Let’s be real. The only thing that matters to 99.9% of all players is the check! Stay in NY where it is all about you. ‘Bron toyed with the media for months and finally said adios to the fun in the sun to return home to sunny, warm, rich, titletown…..CLEVELAND! OK, he has a sense for family, home, and giving back to his community. I admire that. He has his rings now and the thought of winning an NBA title in C Town will certainly add to his legacy. Even if he does win an NBA title there, he will still be behind MJ…SORRY! Cleveland is in the midst of making a huge move by shipping off their #1 pick this year, their #1 pick from last year, and possibly their #1 pick in ’15 or ’16 to bring in Kevin Love. With LeBron, Irving, Love, and a mix of other off season free agent pick ups, Cleveland has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse in just a few months!
Staying with the NBA, I can’t believe Kevin Durant walked away from Team USA citing being tired and worn out. Was he afraid of being injured like team mate Paul George? Look, these guys play year round, they have to so they can stay in shape. The chances of getting hurt on the playground is much higher there than on the court with world class athletes. This just smells like the build up of his summer of 2016 dog and pony show whens he becomes a free agent and the world will be kissing his…..I want to go home….to Washington for a BRINKS truck full of $$$$!
Just when you thought the world of sports was in a “dark period” ( not much happening ), all hell broke loose this week. No NFL, No NCAA Final 4, No College football…No problem! Stupidity never takes a timeout!
Where do I start…Let’s start with NENE last night as the Baltimore Bullets, I mean the Washington Wizards, basically had a chance to put away the Bulls. But no….NENE ( I thought names like this were reserved to Futbol ) did his best MMA impression and put a dreadlock, I mean a headlock, on the Bulls Jimmy Butler. Newsflash…Instead of being up 3-0, the Wizards are up 2-1 and Uncle Mo just jumped on the backs of the Bulls. Stay tuned….
Hey LeBron, you got knocked on your ASS last night. Stop whining. What if this was 15 years ago and you were facing the Bad Boys? Lambier would have knocked you down and Mahorn would have stepped on your neck! Think Magic would have planted a kiss on your cheek? Would Larry, Kevin, and the Chief let you walk down the lane and posterize them? Doubt it! This is the playoffs, this is big boy basketball. Get some GONADS!
Gotta love basketball. Michigan’s Mitch McGary misses the year with a back injury. He decides to burn a few doobies during March Madness and fails a drug test. No problem, he can walk away from the college game and the NBA will draft him in the first round and he will make millions. Of course he learned his lesson. He will never burn one again…wink, wink, nod, nod!
Maybe the height of stupidity happened in Fenway Park on Wednesday when Yankee pitcher Michael Pineda was tossed for having pine tar on his neck. Are you freaking kidding me?? Pine tar on his neck..on National TV…Yankees vs. Red Sox…A history of doctoring the ball already??? It may be one of baseball’s “unwritten rules” that it is OK to load up a ball but a gob of the goo on your neck is about as dumb as it gets!
Albert Pujols just hit HR # 500. Should be a great milestone, a monumental achievement. But in the steroid era, who really believes it was done without the juice. A sad time for MLB.
Hey some good news for the Bluebloods…Cauley-Stein, Lee, Johnson, Poythress, Aaron and Andrew Harrison will return to Kentucky for their second season. With that core group and another top recruiting class coming in, the Wildcats may be tought o beat in ’14-’15. Had Duke’s Parker and Hood stayed, we could have been looking at potentially one of the greatest NCAA Championship games in the history of college basketball. Oh, well, money is more important!
Love golf, but we need Tiger back. Not many personalities out there with Phil floundering and “T” sitting home playing video games. Jack’s records may be safe after all! Did Jordan Spieth’s lack of maturity or immaturity cost him the Green Jacket?
And how about the biggest idiot of all – Clippers owner Donald Sterling. I am not even going to address his outlandish, idiotic, racist, 1920’s mentality comments. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s legacy in year one may hinge on his handling of this situation.

It may not seem the likeliest of pairings, but Tiger Woods‘ ex-wife Elin Nordegren and current flame Lindsey Vonn have apparently become close friends, according to an US Weekly report.
Elin and Woods split in 2010 amid news of the golfer’s serial infidelity.
Woods’ former wife, 34, reportedly approached the 29-year-old Olympic alpine skier because she knew Vonn would be around Nordegren and Woods’ two young children, the article stated.
“After meeting her, she found she actually liked her,” a source told US Weekly. “Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
Their initial encounter apparently blossomed into a full-blown friendship, with the US Weekly article reporting the two even vacationing together recently. “Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common,” the source said. “They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever.”
REVEALED: Elin Nordegren, sent ‘fake text messages’ from Tiger’s phone to his mistresses to confirm her cheating suspicions before explosive fight which ended marriage a year ago
Tiger Woods was first caught cheating in 2009 through some sneaky text messaging by his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
The former Swedish model is alleged to have taken the golfer’s phone while he was passed out under the influence of sleeping pills, on
Thanksgiving night four years ago. Elin began scrolling through her then-husband’s messages hitting upon an exchange between Woods and one of his mistresses Rachel Uchitel – and that’s when she began impersonating Tiger.
According to The Daily Beast , Nordegren, 33, first grew suspicious after she saw a National Enquirer article, published Thanksgiving week in 2009, claiming the pro athlete was embroiled in an illicit affair with Uchitel.

A source told the publication that Tiger, 37, got Uchitel on the phone on November 24 one day prior to the story hitting news stands so she could persuade Elin into believing they were merely friends – the two talked for half an hour.
But Nordegren was not convinced.
On Thanksgiving night, Woods, who is known for having trouble sleeping, is reported to have passed out after dinner with the aid of Ambien and Vicodin.
Once he was asleep, Nordegren grabbed Tiger’s phone and found a text message from Uchitel, saying: ‘You are the only one I’ve loved.’
It was by then the early morning hours of Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, when Nordegren hatched a plan.
The mother-of-two wrote back, impersonating Tiger: ‘I miss you. When are we seeing each other again?’ Read full story here

Robert Griffin III, Sexting on Wedding Night
Robert Griffin III, the Redskins’ quarterback and NFL 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year, is now the center of a potential sexting scandal as Meredith Barber claims she received “inappropriate” text
After initially standing by his comments, Brandel Chamblee tweeted an apology for inciting an uproar by calling Tiger Woods a cheater.
Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee has apologized to Tiger Woods via Twitter after he made insinuating remarks and allegations about Woods for his various rules transgressions this year.
Chamblee, a former PGA Tour player and frequent critic of Woods’ swing under coach Sean Foley, had written an analysis piece for Golf.com in which he assessed several top players’ years by giving them letter grades.
He gave Woods, who won five times this year on the PGA Tour, an F.
Calling someone a cheater can taint one’s legacy, so don’t expect Tiger to take it lying down, writes Farrell Evans. Story
“When I was in the fourth grade, I cheated on a math test and when I got the paper back it had ‘100’ written at the top and just below the grade, was this quote, ‘Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!’ It was an oft-quoted line from the epic poem ‘Marmion‘ by Sir Walter Scott, and my teacher’s message was clear,” Chamblee wrote. “Written once more beneath that quote was my grade of ‘100,’ but this time with a line drawn through it and beneath that an F. I never did ask my teacher how she knew I cheated and I certainly didn’t protest the grade. I knew I had done the wrong thing and my teacher the right, but I never forgot the way I felt when I read that quote. Read full story at ESPN.com
Chamblee’s Twitter Apology: Golf is a gentleman’s game and I’m not proud of this debate. I want to apologize to Tiger for this incited discourse.
