“As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots—what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home—why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment? Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N——s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—-hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!”

I hope that Phil Mushnick doesn’t have too much in his desk to clean out. What is he thinking? Do you really think that saying anything about Jay-Z is a good idea? Did you think that this was going to be a great career move, or are you looking to retire with a bang? Either way you’re not going to win. Just not a good choice for Mushnick here. Not good at all. Hey, maybe we will all see Mushnick on WordPress soon.

I thought that the medical staff was supposed to euthanize horses that got hurt out on the track? All joking aside though you never like to see any player go down like this. Just a freak accident. Sad end to a great career.

 

No matter how many times Tyson Chandler says that he’s joking about his teammates defense, he’s really not. They suck.

Junior Seau was found dead at his home in California. The longtime NFL linebacker was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chest. Seau has shown “suicidal” tendencies in the past. You may remember that Seau had previously tried to commit suicide by driving his SUV off a cliff in California. Sad to see such a great player go out this way. You will be missed Junior.

“If there is a decision I could take back it’s easily that decision,” Mangini said. “Never in a million years would I have wanted it to go this way. It’s disappointing whenever it comes up. It’s regret, it’s disappointment, it’s all of those things. Because I know what it took to win those Super Bowls and I have so much respect for the people that were involved there. I’m disappointed that this is what it’s translated into. Never in a million years did I expect it to play out like this,” Mangini said. “This is one of those situations where I didn’t want them to do the things they were doing. I didn’t think it was any kind of significant advantage, but I wasn’t going to give them the convenience of doing it in our stadium, and I wanted to shut it down. But there was no intent to get the league involved. There was no intent to have the landslide that it has become.”

 

Well, well, well. Look who regrets turning on the Dark Side. I wonder when Mangini started regretting his decision? Was it when no team wanted to hire him? Was it when he had to take a job as an NFL analyst with the forced out and retired coaches? You really thought that being a snitch was going to work out for you and your career? He doesn’t regret that he informed, he regrets what happened because he informed. Those are two different things. Even he says that it didn’t provide an advantage. Mangini basically just wanted to stick it to Belichick and it backfired. Now he’s on ESPN and Belichick is still coaching. That’s what happens when you try to disrupt the force.

 

Great move by the Greg Schiano and the Buccaneers here. A true feel good story in a time where those are becoming harder and harder to find. Great to see that Eric LeGrand is having his dream of being signed by an NFL team. On top of that this is still a better signing than anyone that the Jets drafted.

After last nights monster performance by Paul Pierce he did what some are saying was “Tebowing”. I’m not quite sure that’s what it was though. I just think that basically Paul Pierce was saying thank you. That’s all. And since when did praying become “Tebowing”? Are you serious? Players have been doing this before games forever, and they will keep doing it forever. I guess it just took an overrated, back up QB to bring it to the media’s attention. Give me a break. If your a real Celtics fan you will have no problem with me stating that Pierce is a drama queen, who complains about no foul calls every time he drives in  lane. I think that this is just an extension of his overly expressive emotions.

Remember this-

“Hey John I got 5 rings, how many you have? Oh yeah I forgot. Zero.”

John Harbaugh-

“In the end, everything is brought before the light of day, when it’s all said and done,” Harbaugh said on “98 Rock” in Baltimore. “What happens, even the thing in New England, no matter whether those things had any impact on whether they won their championships or not, they got asterisks now. It’s been stained.To me, it’s never worth it. You have to figure out ways to use the rules to your advantage; you have to figure out ways to make the most of everything. We have new work rules here as far as what we can do and what we can’t do with our players, and we’re going to make the most of it. What we’re finding is, ‘Man, maybe we can do some things even better than we did before, because these rules make us focus more on some things that we didn’t focus on before.’ You just have to make them work for you. That’s what success is in the world. You have to find a way to do things better than somebody else. But if you’re cheating, in the end, you’re going to get discredited. It’s not worth it.”

 

Tedy Brushci jumped to the Patriots defense on ESPN with this-

“You want to take a shot, go ahead and say it. When I look down at my hand and I see championship rings, I know how much work had to be put in to win those championships. I’m very set and secure with all of the victories that we had, the work we put in. I don’t know what the Patriots organization or Coach Belichick has to do to prove how good he is as a head coach or how good those players were or how good that organization is. Coach Belichick belongs in the same breath as Vince Lombardi and coach Paul Brown, those types of coaches. That’s who he is, that’s where he belongs. The shot at Coach Belichick I don’t understand. When Coach Harbaugh was interviewing for the job in Baltimore, it was Coach Belichick that vouched for him. There’s a little bit of loyalty that Coach Harbaugh needs to learn.”

 

Harbaugh then “clarified” his comments-

“I have so much respect for Coach Belichick and the job he does and has accomplished in his Hall of Fame career,” he said. “I called him to remind him of my respect for him. I also reached out to Tedy Bruschi, who rightfully defended those Patriot players and coaches on ESPN, to tell him that I agree with him that the Patriots earned every victory.”

 

This is what I love about the Patriots and being a Patriots fan. If one person says something stupid, another Patriot jumps in to defend them. I love what Tedy Bruschi did here. Oh, you want to talk bad about the Patriots and their championships John Harbaugh? Didn’t Belichick help you get your job? Yeah I thought so. My only question is why would Harbaugh even say something like this? Is he really still that mad about the AFC Championship game? It’s not the Patriots fault that your coaching staff and kicker shit their pants when the game was on the line. No amount of tape could cause that. I don’t even really understand why some Patriots fans take offense to people talking about the Spygate thing anyway. Spygate is just used as an excuse by shitty teams to make themselves feel good by saying that the Patriots cheated. That’s fine with me. If you don’t think that your favorite team, and a majority of the league, doesn’t do it too than your ignorant. What’s you should really be worried about is that your favorite team sucks so bad that taping still doesn’t help them.

 

I’m not even sure what Steeplechase is, but it’s definitely makes for good youtube videos. It also looks like a good way to break your neck. Either run track or swim, not both.

If this isn’t the Knicks luck than I don’t know what is. Just classic Knicks. Lose 12 straight playoffs games and just getting handled by the Heat. Stoudemire is pissed that he lost and that Carmelo took 100 shots so he punches a fire extinguisher and cuts his hand on the glass. Good news for the Knicks is that their stats are actually better when Amare doesn’t play. In reality it’s not like they have a chance against the Heat anyway.
