Beginning of the month, been watching a lot of sports… yep, it’s time for another round of random thoughts.
Fernando Torres has scored one goal since being acquired by Chelsea in January… one. I always pick the best teams to follow don’t I?
The Yankees wouldn’t trade for Ubaldo Jimenez due to concerns about his velocity. In a possible trade the Rockies would’ve wanted Ivan Nova as part of the deal… Jimenez hasn’t made it past the 5th inning in 3 of his 7 starts with the Indians, Nova hasn’t lost since June… I think Cashman got that one right.
Losing to a FCS school should be like relegation in soccer shouldn’t it? Hi Oregon State.
Me at 8:30 pm last Saturday of the Boise State-Georgia game: “those Georgia uniforms are hideous.”
Me 48 hours while watching the Maryland-Miami game: “those are the worst uniforms I have ever seen.”
Nyjer Morgan called Albert Pujols “Alberta,” does he realize Pujols is 4 inches taller and 50 pounds heavier than him?
Baylor is mad that Texas A&M is leaving the Big 12 and possibly breaking up the conference leaving them in football limbo. Somewhere Rice, TCU and SMU are uttering to themselves karma is a mother.
Wait a minute, Kevin Durant has tattoos?
At least David Garrard and Byron Leftwich have something in common to be mad about.
The way that analysts were criticizing his QB skills you would’ve swore Tim Tebow was black.
Appalachian wants to join the FBS… after getting drubbed 66-13 by Virginia Tech they should reconsider.
Tom Brady said he would welcome back Randy Moss with open arms. I’m not saying that’s in some way related to Chad Ochocinco… but I’m saying.
So if John Isner wins the U.S. Open is his career a bigger success than Andy Roddick’s?
Utah State almost beat Auburn, BYU beat Ole Miss, and Utah beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl years ago… maybe the SEC should stop playing teams from Utah.
Stephen Strasburg’s back, and he looks good.
(honestly it didn’t matter if the Nats lost that game or not, all that mattered was if Strasburg looked like he was the same pitcher he was before he left or not and he was. His movement and velocity were pretty darn good, he made everything look effortless and dominated a decent Dodgers lineup. If I’m the Nats and I look at a rotation with Strasburg, a rejuvenated Chien-Ming Wang, Jordan Zimmerman and John Lannon at bats like Ryan Zimmerman and Mike Morse then I’m feeling good about next year. that is if Jayson Werth can hit with that $18 million per year salary on his back.)
That Carlos Beltran deal isn’t working out so well for the Giants… shocker.
Who’s the next program to get stung by the NCAA? I’ll take South Carolina.
I’m still blinded by Maryland’s uniforms.
TIki Barber is shocked that no one threw him a bone this offseason. I mean who wouldn’t want a 36 year-old running back that hasn’t played in 5 years with tons of public baggage?
Ndamukong Suh is not dirty, he’s just playing football the way Deacon Jones would like.
It might be time for Tiger Woods to consider new career options.
I will not talk about A.J. Burnett, I will not talk about A.J. Burnett, I will not talk about A.J. Burnett.
Aaron Rodgers called out Mark Sanchez for his GQ pictures. What can Sanchez respond with? Rodgers just won a Super Bowl he can say what he wants.
I think we might actually have a season without Brett Favre.
I have a feeling Luke Fickell might be more conservative than Jim Tressel.
By the way, how does Tressel get a six game suspension from the NFL for his NCAA violations?
(Goodell needs to keep college problems in college. Their penalties don’t transfer to the NFL. Tressel quit/ got fired by the Ohio State University so his 5 game suspension is pretty much obliterated. The fact that Tressel and Terrelle Pryor for that matter have carry over suspensions from college shows that maybe Goodell has too much power when it come to these disciplinary actions and should some of that power stripped. And it will be… in ten years with a new CBA. Good job NFLPA.)
Doesn’t it seem like Lance Briggs and the Bears have been beefing since 2006?
Apparently the NBA is making strides to getting a CBA done real soon. How does Wilson Chandler feel about that?
If the Philadelphia Phillies don’t win the World Series it would be a Greek tragedy.
I have a few choice words for how the Baltimore Orioles handled the makeup games with the New York Yankees and the results of those games. I can’t say them on this blog but I’ll let your mind wander.
After all of the controversy surrounding Ohio State this year how do three more players get suspended for taking benefits? I should’ve went to Ohio University.
I expected more from the Winnipeg Jets jerseys.
At least they weren’t Maryland’s.
(you know what’s even scarier than what we witnessed on Monday night? There are more than 12 color combinations that Under Armour has in store for this year. Under Armour is based in Baltimore, Maryland and I guess they are doing to the Terps what Nike did to the Oregon Ducks… except Oregon’s outfits look extremely cool. Oregon’s designs have flair and eye popping designs, Maryland’s are a horror show. There was way too much of the Maryland flag for any human being to take. A message to UA: emulation is the sincerest form of flattery but leave the flashy stuff to Oregon. By the way Maryland’s football team is going to make some noise this year and you should pay more attention to Danny O’Brian than his jersey.)
What Ana Ivonivic could’ve been.
Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly broke up… hide your girlfriends New York.
NHL training camps start this week…
That mean we’re a month a away from Rachel McAdams shots at Vancouver games and Carrie Underwood at Predators games.
God I love hockey.
