Dear Anybody

If anybody is wondering where I have been of late.  I don’t really know.  I thought that I would have time to get this thing going again, but it hasn’t happened.  Therefore, I need to take a quick hiatus from writing.  I will come back in the future to continue writing, but for the time being I won’t be around.  Alas, it’s almost NCAA tourney time and the NBA playoffs are around the corner which means that I will be forced to come back, because as we all know I love me some NCAA tourney time!

Bye for now!

Happy 41st Stevie

Steven A. Nash turned 41 the other day.  Here’s one of the best plays he ever made.

The Van Gundy Effect

I could sit and watch Jeff Van Gundy call a college or NBA basketball game any day of the week.  He just makes things much more interesting than most announcers.  First of all, he and Mark Jackson together is just an amazing combination.  They both just talk crap about each other and it’s pure comedy.

Believe me, even when he is being stupid it’s funny.  Just ask Doris Burke.

Where is Tiger Woods?

Remember about 6 or 7 years ago when everyone was wondering when Tiger Woods would break Jack Nicklaus’ major Championship record?  Remember when Tiger was supposed to break Sam Snead’s PGA tour wins record?  Remember when Tiger was just breaking records like crazy?  Yeah, me too.

Tiger Woods is outside the Official Golf Rankings top 50.  And not playing like a top 350 player.  He was absolutely terrible in his first tournament of the year and we can only sit back and watch as he continues to try and regain some semblance of what made him so great.

Until Tiger finds his short game however, we are destined to see him play terrible golf.

Dunk Contest

The NBA All-Star game is approaching and that means it’s time to talk about the Dunk Contest.  The NBA was finally smart enough to realize that last years event did not work.  This year we got Giannis Antetokuompo, Mason Plumlee, Victor Oladipo and Zach Lavine.   LaVine should be the front runner and the reason is this:

Australian Open

The Australian Open is now heading into it’s second week and a few upsets have already happened.  Roger Federer is the first big name that I can think of, but there have been others as well.

Let’s pick some winners shall we?

I am thinking that Andy Murray is due for a big win on the Men’s side.  He seems to be the healthiest of the top 5 players and the one most likely to make it through the tough draw that he has.

On the women’s side, I think Maria Sharapova outlasts Serena Williams in the final in what should be one hell of a great match.  Looking forward to that.
