Floyd “Picks” an Opponent: That’s the Problem

February 25, 2014

What is really going on in the world? Dale Jr. won a race, gay athletes are not having the bible thrown at them at every turn, and Floyd Mayweather has picked an opponent for his pre-booked May third bout. Now if you’re reading that, I’m sure you know one of those don’t really belong in the triad of mentions. Yes, Floyd has picked an opponent. However, there is absolutely nothing new about this scenario. In fact, this scenario is THE problem with the sport...

New Bigfoot Video: Sasquatch is Real … and he Surfs [VIDEO]

News out of Dallas today points to new bigfoot videos and photos that experts say prove sasquatch is real. But those who made it out to the Still Frothy Surf Festival in Pismo Beach, Calif., already new that. Sasquatch showed he is real Sunday, busting out his surfboard and catching a few lefts off of Pismo Pier, as we noted in a previous post. Here’s the video of Satch’s performance: No word on if Satch’s booties or melted bits of hairy surfwax were among...

Central Coast surfing fans were treated to quite a show on Sunday during the Still Frothy Surf Festival as pros such as Tom Curren came out to Pismo Beach, Calif., and made the most of the sloppy 3- to 4-foot surf. But what local surf fans weren’t expecting on Sunday was a sasquatch sighting. That’s right, a bigfoot surfer crashed the festival, surfing the opposite side of the pier from the contest but still catching a odd looks from beachgoers along with a few...

“Money” Mayweather vs Canelo: Why I Dislike

June 1, 2013

The boxing world has been trying to put Manny Pacquiao in the ring with Floyd Mayweather for a number of years now. I think the consensus of fans realize its probably not going to happen, which lead some to trying to figure out the next best fight to get “Money” his first loss. Thats where Saul “Canelo” Alvarez came into the picture. The hard hitting Mexican fighter brings a level of excitement to a Mayweather fight that hasn’t been seen in a while. Without...

We’re Going to Miss Russell Westbrook While He’s Gone.

We’re Going to Miss Russell Westbrook While He’s Gone.

It’s hard to quantify how much of an impact injuries have had on the NBA Playoffs. Kobe Bryant isn’t playing, Derrick Rose may or may not return, Rajon Rondo has been out for months, and so on. It sucks because we wait all year for four rounds of non-stop basketball, climatic finishes and huge box scores that make our eyes pop open. So, it serves as no surprise that Russell Westbrook being out of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s lineup for the rest of the...

The Exploitation of the NCAA Student-Athlete

I’m about to graduate from college in about a month, and it’s been a pretty fun five years that include some unique stress. I’ve been down to my last dollar on more occasions than I’m willing to mention, I’ve spent money on instances that I probably shouldn’t have, and I’ve had my fair share of irresponsible moments because, well, I’m a college student and that’s expected of me. So, when I watch NCAA sports and keep up with the hell and high water that...

The Sixers Should Be Happy Bynum is Hurt Now Instead of Later

March 4, 2013

It seems to a lot of people that the Philadelphia 76ers have a lot to be mad at Andrew Bynum for during this frustrating season many hoped would make for the Sixers taking a step forward. If the Sixers should be anything, they should be grateful that they traded for Bynum, even if he never plays a single minute in their uniform. For years, the Sixers have been one of the many teams in the NBA who struggled with being in limbo, stuck between...

Joe Flacco Deserves His New Contract.

Joe Flacco Deserves His New Contract.

Joe Flacco has gotten the biggest contract in NFL history for a quarterback, and everyone has most certainly chimed in with differing opinions about the Super Bowl MVP getting six years and $120.6 million. Flacco has been the latest subject of the “Is he elite or his he not?” debate that seems to take place every season now that there is an apparent obsession with the NFL’s signal-caller hierarchy. With a laser arm, 6’5 stature, and calm demeanor, Flacco has the physical tools that...

The Possibility of an Openly Gay Athlete

March 1, 2013

Things have certainly changed from our grandfathers’ sports realm. Heck, things have changed from our fathers’ sports realm. The media, social networks, and bloggers (coughs) have turned sports into something just a tad more than just wins, losses, and championships. That change is progressing into something we haven’t seen before. Along with that change comes that of an openly gay athlete. It is something that is pondered by many and the way it will be received is not really known by anyone. People, cameras,...

Colin Kaepernick Ushers in a New Era This Super Bowl Sunday.

Colin Kaepernick Ushers in a New Era This Super Bowl Sunday.

It’s the most wonderful time of the sports year. In case there was any idea that I tried to re-write a Christmas carol, I’m talking about Super Bowl week with Super Bowl Sunday looming. There are enough storylines to spark intrigue for everyone watching. This will likely be Ray Lewis’ last game of his 17-year Hall of Fame career, Joe Flacco is going to continue his ascension into the top tier of NFL quarterbacks, and there’s the Harbaugh Bowl that everyone is glowing abut...
