WHAT!?! The Nets Won?!?

It’s getting pretty cold outside as winter hits full stride, but hell might just have just frozen over with this news! The Nets have finally won a game taking out a very good mediocre team, in the Charlotte Bobcats 97-91. I guess the Bobcats are pretty bad, but Jersey fans will take what they can get. They luckily ended their record breaking 18 game losing streak, which MCeezy paid tribute to yesterday, and still hold the title of the worst team in the league, but at least they won’t have to worry about losing all 82. Now they just need to make sure they win ten more, so they don’t set the record for worst season of all time! At this point that could be a challenge, but I think they will keep themselves from making that type of history, especially if Courtney Lee and Brook Lopez can both deliver the type of performances they had tonight. If anything is positive about this team is that they have the inside track to drafting John Wall, who I think would fit nicely with this team, even with Harris in the lineup.

One last thought that occurred to me about the Bobcats from a Warriors fan perspective. I wondered how SJax likes his new surroundings on a WINNING TEAM HAHAHAHAHA! Way to get yourself out of Oakland smooth move!

More Impressive than Lebron’s Shot?

Now we’ve all see Lebron’s full court football pass that somehow went in the basket. It was impressive, but for some reason I don’t find it as impressive as if he’d made the same shot with a basketball from the same distance. A football is made for throwing, so in essence, it should be easier right? This brought me to try to find a shot that was harder, and the clip above made the cut. Not sure how many times they tried, but either way it’s very impressive! There are more things that need to be accounted for with this shot as it’s just lucky if it does go in! Aside from putting the right swing on the ball, you have to hope the outside elements don’t effect it like the wind or the unevenness of the bounce… Anyways, enjoy, and have a great weekend!


Marco Scutaro Signs With the Much Maligned Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox and SS Marco Scutaro agreed to a two year deal this morning, making Scutaro the team’s new shortstop – a position that’s been somewhat of a hole for the club in recent years. It’s unfortunate to see one of my favorite players go to my least favorite team, but I’m happy for him to get the opportunity to be an everyday player on a contending team.

In honor of Scutaro’s deal, we’re going to revisit his greatest career moment, and probably the greatest moment I ever witnessed, in person, in my career as a professional sports fan. Back in 2006, the Oakland A’s won the American League West division title, and earned a first round matchup with the Twins. The Twins had home field advantage, and many predicted the A’s would leave Minneapolis down 0-2 in the series. Scutaro had a key RBI in each of the first two games. Game 3 was out here in Oakland. After an RBI double in the 2nd inning, Scutaro came to the plate with the bases loaded and 2 out in the bottom of the 7th. With a capacity crowd chanting his name in unison, Scutaro fell behind 1-2, and then cleared the bases with a drive down the right field line, sending the Coliseum faithful into a frenzy – and me almost over the railing down into the first deck. That hit put the game out of reach, as the A’s now had an 8-2 lead, and ultimately sealed the Division Series sweep for the A’s.
