Jordan Vs. Lebron Parody

Ran across this clip this morning, and have to say it’s awesome! I’m on the fence if it’s actually real or not, since I don’t know why Nike would want MJ to rip on their golden boy Lebron. Either way, I don’t really care if it was doctored, and the words MJ is saying are from a completely different interview, because I bet this is how Jordan actually feels deep down. All I know is if it’s real Lebron might wish he didn’t tell everyone in the league to not wear 23 anymore

Showdown In Reno

There’s three big games in college football today featuring a matchup of two Top 25 teams. You’ve got Oregon-Arizona and the biggest game of the year possibly in Auburn-Alabama. But, the one I’m looking forward to most is the nightcap, Boise State at Nevada. We all know where the Broncos stand, but what few outside of Nevada realize, the Wolfpack are enjoying quite possibly their greatest season ever. With BSU set to move over to the Mountain West next year, this will be the final conference matchup between the perennial champions, and maybe their greatest challenger this decade. I could delve into an in-depth preview of the game, but clearly this game is going to hinge on one factor: UNR’s mindset. Despite growing up a mere 100 miles from Reno, I’ve only seen one sporting event there, and I was fortunate enough for it to be a huge basketball upset of then #2 Kansas. Although, that game wasn’t necessary for me to understand how great Nevada fans are. The Wolfpack are the only game in town, if you don’t count the AAA-Reno Aces or the NBDL’S Reno Bighorns. The stadium is going to be rocking tonight, so it’s all going to come down to how the players come out the gates. They could either ride the emotion of the crowd and play the game of their lives, or they could buckle under the pressure and suffer a similar fate to that of their WAC counterparts in Fresno, who lost 51-0 last week. I’m so fired up for this game though, that I looked into getting tickets for the game. Not surprisingly, they’ve been sold out for some time now. It’s not a bad consolation that I’ll be in nearby Lake Tahoe for the weekend, so I’m really looking forward to catching the game somewhere in Wolfpack country. The game kicks off at 7:15pm Pacific Time at Mackay Stadium in Reno and can be seen on ESPN
