-So Johnny is officially the backup QB in Cleveland.  I have to say that he didn’t deserve to start.  Not only was his play only so-so, but he also flashed his immaturity several times.  There is no doubt that Johnny has considerable talent.  However, he has to learn to harness his emotions.  Guys are going [...]

-The baseball All-Star game is always one that I enjoy. The first few innings this year were very exciting. Then all the closers came in and shut down all the hitting. Wouldn’t it be nice to have 4 closers to end the gamekeeper that?  I thought Trout was deserving of the MVP. There wasn’t anyone [...]

-What an exciting time for sports. I’ll start with the World Cup Final later today. I’m really looking forward to the game. Two powerhouse teams go at it for the chance to be the 2014 Champion. Germany has been more proficient on offense, but I’m not sure they’ve plays a defense quite as good as [...]

-It’s been a whirlwind in the NBA Free Agency so far.  The LeBron and Carmelo stories are coming from every angle.  If you had asked me where they’d both end up a week ago I would have said New York and Miami and felt very confident about it.  Now, I’m not so sure.  There have [...]
