-Wow, didn’t realize it’s been nearly two weeks since I posted anything.  Sorry about that.  Anyway, a lot going on the world of sports.  I’ll start with my favorite… basketball.  The NBA season is coming to a close.  Most teams have around 16-17 games left.  The Eastern Conference picture is becoming more and more clear [...]

-So much going on these days in the world of sports.  Perhaps some of the Hawks’ players read my article a few days ago and that encouraged them to pummel The Mavericks last night.  Or it could just be that I was just totally wrong and the Hawks are an elite team.  Big game in [...]

Are the Atlanta Hawks REALLY this good?

February 25th, 2015

As many of you know, I’m a huge NBA fan.  This has been a really fun season so far because the top two teams (Atlanta and Golden State) aren’t the same old teams that are always at the top.  San Antonio is really struggling.  Miami lost LeBron.  Cleveland is finally starting to figure it out, [...]

Oscar Preview and Predictions

February 20th, 2015

The Oscars are this weekend and I can’t wait.  I’ve always loved movies and award shows, so the Oscars are a perfect match for me.  I always make it a goal to see as many of the Oscar nominated movies before the show each year.  This year I was able to see all the films [...]

-I watched a good bit of the LSU/Kentucky game last night.  I’ve been a bit obsessed with Kentucky this year, as they chase history with a perfect season.  They’ve nearly given that perfect season away during their last two games.  Granted these were both tough road games @ Florida and @ LSU, but they have [...]

-Lots of interesting talk around the NBA as they get ready for the All-Star break.  One of the most interesting things I heard was that there was consideration of switching the Playoff system to include the best 16 teams, regardless of conference.  This would make it more of a tournament than a Playoff.  There are [...]

-I know everyone is tired or reading about the controversy at the end of the Super Bowl.  However, I just wanted to give my take.  Let me start by saying that if your a Seahawks’ fan it really doesn’t matter what ANYONE says, you’re still going to be upset.  You can show them all the [...]

Super Bowl Preview/Prediction

January 31st, 2015

The “Big Game” is finally upon us. I was listening to a podcast that said they thought this was going to be the highest rated Super Bowl ever. First off let me say that saying something like that is not really going out on a limb. Nearly every year the game seems to get bigger [...]

-Lots to cover today, so I’ll get right to it.  I’ll start in the NFL.  While I’m not surprised who won the games, I was shocked to see how they were won.  I had written Seattle off when Wilson threw an interception with 5:13 left to play.  They were down 12 at that point and [...]
