“If you’re gonna be critical, do your homework.”
My Floyd Mayweather Jr., head scratching observations…
-Boston Red Sox fans, please, no excuses. I don’t want to hear about injuries. You have 3 possible 2011 MVP candidates in your lineup.
-I watched a High School football game last night and the kicker recovered an on-side kick.
-If you rat someone out involved in software piracy, you can get a cash reward. How many people out there do you think will turn into stoolies?
-No NBA camp? No pre-season?
-ESPN was lovin’ them some Russell Martin on Friday. The Yankees catcher said, “I hate the Red Sox.”
-Syracuse Orangemen in the A.C.C.?
-Former Detroit Tigers and ex-convict Denny McLain was arrested Friday afternoon. McLain had a record of 31-6 in 1968.
-Sports Illustrated one week has Justin Verlander on their cover now this week they have Brad Pitt.
-Tom Crean, men’s head basketball coach tweets often. The former Mt. Pleasant, Michigan resident has over 40,000 follower but only follows 13 people?
-New York Yankees center fielder and former UIC basketball player Curtis Granderson has 41 homers,10 triples and 26 doubles.
-Those championship t-shirts they pass out to the winners look cool. But in the lockerroom after the celebration, those things are soaked with booze.
-Ted Williams won the triple crown twice and wasn’t named American League MVP in either season.
-The Dan Patrick Show does an excellent job in covering sports. They have outstanding guests and great conversation all around the studio which consists of 5 grown men. But why all the talk about women?
-Out in Vegas they have formed the Lockout League. NBA players running on a daily basis. No coaches allowed. Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee attempted a hook-shot and Kenyon Martin screamed at him, “whaddya think you’re Kareem Abdul-Jabber?”
-Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees has been in pinstripes for 16 years. He’s made the post-season 15 of those years.
-Former Kansas Jayhawk basketball player Keith Langford said that Kris Kardashian Humphries was a jerk on his official recruiting visit to Lawrence. The Kansas players informed head coach Roy Williams that Humphries would not be a good fit in Phog Allen Fieldhouse.
-Listening to WEEI Sports Talk Radio out of Boston and a host said the Red Sox missed the boat on Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Doug Fister. Oh really? The guy was 3-12 first half of the season with Seattle. In 16 of his games Mariners scored 2 runs or less. I would say with hindsight being 20/20, a lot of teams missed on Fister.
