A boring week in sports had a fitting end as there wasn’t too much to report this weekend. The boxing was exciting, but not too much else really caught my eye. Smarty Joines was actually sitting next to Chuck Liddell at the airport in Vegas with his laptop, but he failed to show him my “Four-Sided Fight Night” article. How perfect would that have been? I hope Brian didn't have the computer resting on his lap. I had a laptop sitting on my lap for 2 summers in a row during college, and I don't think I have any sperm left in the tank.
Stephen Jackson and Ron Artest have both managed to be suspended for 7 games at the start of the 2008 NBA season. Artest’s problems stem from a good old domestic dispute felony charge this past spring.
Boobs Mickelson managed to choke away the Scottish Open on Sunday when his play became a bit erratic coming down the stretch. Starting on 14, Phil went bogey, birdie, bogey, birdie, bogey. He was leading by one stroke heading into 18, but his bogey sent him to a playoff with Gregory Havret of
The WNBA All-Star game produced some unexpected drama……………..just kidding, no it didn’t.
In baseball news, the Phillies became the first team to lose 10,000 games, Barry Bonds was 0-12 in the Giants series with the Dodges, and the Yankee’s climbed back above .500 back taking 3 out of 4 from the Devil Rays. The Cub’s closed the weekend trailing the Brewer’s by 3.5 games in the NL Central, while the NL East and NL West are both up for grabs as the Mets are only 1.5 games out in front of the Braves, and the Dodges are holding onto a slim 1 game lead over the San Diego Fathers.
The Red Sox still have a strangle hold on the AL East, leading the Yanks by 9 games, while the AL Central is very tight with the Tigers up a half game on the Indians (can’t forget about the Twins at 5 back either) The Angles lead the Mariners by 3 out in the AL West, and the Athletics will probably go on a 25 game winning streak soon so look out for them.
I think the most interesting story coming out of MLB this weekend was speculation about A-Rod’s future if he opts out of his deal and decides to test the free agent waters. Supposedly, a team that wanted him a few years back is still interested, and they should have the flexibility to go after him! I don’t want to see Log hurt himself but this would almost be too good.
(The picture is what I would suspect the press conference to look like. Meaning A-Rod is such a dick that he would steal Daisuke's # and wear eye-black....or is that the famed poopy conseco he is sporting???
Victoria Beckham has a reality show on NBC titled “Coming to
In entertainment news, the ESPY’s were televised tonight on ESPN. I watched the first 20 minutes and decided that was enough. Lebron was really funny from what I saw, but the show is a drag. I already knew who won as the show was taped over a week ago, and the information leaked all over the internet. I’m done typing.
