Why I Am No Fan Of Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose, the former MVP and point guard of the Chicago Bulls has been dealing with loads of criticism. Both those criticizing him for not playing and those criticizing the critics for being critical. Everyone needs to shut the hell up. The reality of it is we are all right and wrong at the same time.

And Douchiest Trade Ever Goes To…

The Philidelphia Phillies! The king of all dick moves in sports has reached a new low in baseball. Now salary dumps are normal and teams are willing to trade stars or good players for players with expiring contracts in order to free cap for one reason or the other. I generally don’t complain about those things because they make those trades with the future in mind.

But what did the Phillies trade RHP Mike Cisco to the Angels for?

Literally nothing…

NFL Season In Review

The Ravens are the crowned champions and a lot of 49er fans are distraught (including my roommate). Since the Superbowl is over now, we have one lastĀ vestige to look forward to as pro football fans. The NFL Draft. So let us get the run down on where each team has ended the season… from best to worst.

Not Only Is Ray Lewis Far From The Best Middle Linebacker of All Time, He Is The Most Overrated Defensive Player In NFL History

The Baltimore Ravens have won Superbowl 47 and did it with exactly the opposite style that the Ravens generally have been. They did it offensively. Joe Flacco played out of his mind and is now alongside Joe Montana as the only quarterbacks to ever throw 11 TDs with 0 INTs. Joe Flacco played out of his mind all playoffs and is he getting credit? Kind of. He got the MVP trophy, but everyone keeps wanting to babble on about Ray Lewis this Ray Lewis that. I’m not doubting that Lewis brings an energy to his team, nor do I doubt his skill level or ability, but to say this guy is not just one of, but is THE best linebacker of all time is an absolute joke and travesty.

My Superbowl Prediction

So here it is… my choice for who will win this years sports spectacle. There are many stories to run with this year and I don’t give a single s–t about any of them. I care about football and the gridiron that it is played on. It doesn’t matter what Ray Lewis has done in his career this coming Sunday, nor do I care which Harbaugh boy wins it all and I especially don’t care about whatever crap that talk about involving Colin Kaepernick and his upbringing. I might care about something involving Ed Reed’s beard and anger toward everything that is wide receiver based… that seems mildly interesting.

This game will hopefully be what it should, a decent scoring slug fest where 2 great defenses collide against 2 hot handed quarterbacks. Flacco vs Kaepernick is a hell of a lot more interesting than I expected it to be. Flacco, who is duller than a 1920’s dildo against Kaepernick, a young quarterback who has successfully integrated a solid pistol style offense and is being what everyone thought Mike Vick was in 2006 but with a more accurate arm. So who? Which team am I taking? Well…

The Lakers Need To Trade Dwight Howard Or Risk Becoming “The Lackers”

This is something that many would have found laughable just 6 months ago, but it is true. If the Lakers want to return to prominence in the Western Conference, they need to remove the peanut brained Dwight Howard from their roster. In his last year with Orlando, he managed to get a good head coach fired in Stan Van Gundy, absolutely clusterf–k everything in the way of leverage for a trade and refuse to sign an extension of any kind because he was a whiny brat who doesn’t understand how trades work for NBA teams. He wanted Brooklyn, not because they are a team who is up and coming, but because he wants to hangout with his friends and be good ole’ silly Dwight. Awww shucks! Except the reality is that he is nothing more than an average center when it comes to a teammate. He can put up points and boards, but he doesn’t possess anything that offers leadership and this should be an alarm that the Lakers and the Buss family need to take into account immediately and trade Dwight Howard.
