YEP, we’re back. Not since the 3rd of June have we actually posted a podcast and you know what, it feels good to be back. So we kicked off the dust and got back to it. We talked about the Olympics closing up and Team USA basketball. We only just touched on football, but I can promise, this will be a fun football season. Well, thanks for tuning back in, and we’ll get back to a regular schedule at some point.
I think Golden State is going to do well. They’re my team. They’re gonna do it. Enough said.
This evening I get to watch this game because MOJO+ television is broadcasting the NBA Network for four hours. I now want the NBA network. I saw so many sick moves and dunks in a 45 minute period. I couldn’t stop smiling. I felt like a kid. It was great times. Now I just have to put down the money to have the network full time. Maybe I can swing it when I move into my next place.
I just watched the Blazers flame out against Houston. I’m hoping that the All-Star break will do the team some good. Brandon Roy is playing in both the Rookie-Sophomore and All-Star games, though. He gets to play back to back days on a weekend that is everyone’s break? Although I don’t think it will be quite as demanding as two games that count towards the playoffs.
On a recommendation from Jason Quick of the Oregonian I went and checked out Channing Frye’s blog. (Check it out on the links to the right.) Good writer. I also like hearing an athlete actually talking about the things that interest him. He weighs in Politics, does movie reviews, talks about his day to day life, and anything else without pretending he’s a expert. He comes across as a real person with opinions. I’m glad that blogs have become a way for fans to find out the more human side of these athletes that the leagues would have us believe are superhuman. Thank you Gilbert Arenas for beginning to popularize this and make it okay in the NBA. Read the rest of this entry »
Here’s a book I’m planning on getting the next time I can find time to actually make it to a book store. It’s called The Kitchen Readings: Untold Stories of Hunter S. Thompson. The excerpt was great, although a bit PG-13. Good times though at Hunter’s sporting events. My favorite line came early: “Hunter had no problem with children, as long as they were willing to gamble along with everyone else.” I’ll let you know how things go when I’m done.
If anybody saw that terrible Tom Brady post I regretted and eventually took down I want to make amends. A much better post than mine was done over at Girls Gone Sports. So in case anyone hasn’t figured it out the Patriots lost. I can once again root for the Celtics. I will no longer worry about the cloud of smug consuming America from Boston.
Shaq goes to the Suns. I was discussing this with various people and think that the Suns may improve because of this. They may also tank terribly. I have to think the team will do well though and especially against teams with big men. I think Marion will do well in Miami as well. Yeah, Miami probably won’t be in championship contention anytime soon, but Marion will keep doing what he does. With Wade as the other big name he’ll get the respect he feels he deserves. I think it was always hard for him to realize that Nash and Stoudamire were what the team was really about. But he’ll either be the guy in Miami, or duck out and find a different team next year. Time will tell. Read the rest of this entry »
So I just found out that the new Will Ferrell movie Semi-Pro is coming out on February 29th. The story of an ABA team. This just looks hilarious. The site has a red-band trailer that had me cracking up. I can’t wait.
Who wants Super Bowl tickets? With the prices on StubHub being $3,000 – $17,000 dollars I think I might have to pass this year. And since when was scalping legal when you do it on the internet?
