I came home from my extended Labor Day weekend in New York to a ton of sports news. Obviously it was opening weekend in the college football world. Additionally, it was the final weekend prior to the kickoff for the NFL.
At that digested, it was the arrest story of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart which sticks out. He was arrested for possession and trafficking a controlled substance . In honor of this, I decided to post this YouTube tribute. Well, ’cause why not. Why not get lost in YouTube looking at old Jim Neidhart video clips.
I am in the minority, but I haven’t disagreed with much of what LeBron has done this summer. That is — until this new GQ interview.
What do I disagree with? It’s not his admitted hate towards Cleveland…
“It’s not far, but it is far. And Clevelanders, because they were the bigger-city kids when we were growing up, looked down on us.… So we didn’t actually like Cleveland. We hated Cleveland growing up.”
That I find hilariously honest and honestly hilarious.
I disagree with the chose to wear these white pants that LeBron is rocking in his GQ photoshoot. These things are not quite at a Kobe LA Times-mag level — but they are in the conversation.
My thoughts about the new “nWo version” of LeBron if you continue.
I’ve been letting this one stew all day. In the case that you have not heard; the Marlins have let the Phillies take over. This is akin to the nWo invasion of WCW in the mid-90s.
“There have only been 20 perfect games in history,” Marlins president David Samson said. “To the extent that there is any demand for tickets for that game, and there is an availability of tickets, this just made sense.” So, the Marlins are actually selling the remaining tickets to the 20th perfect game in MLB history. A game in which they were essentially made to look inadequate.
You know how most team would have sold tickets to see the world champion Phillies, and their new ace? Maybe put a decent product on the field on a semi-perennial basis? Maybe?
Since putting a decent product on the field in Miami is a very cyclical thing, and thus seems out of the question, the Marlins chose this clever alternative approach. (more…)
