Well, the weekend was dominated by sports news – with the riots and everything – so why not a quick Monday wrap-up?
Blue-eyed white devil NBA Commissioner David Stern came down with suspensions yesterday of many the players involved in the Freewheelin’ Friday Fracas in Detroit. And what was the real reason behind these suspensions? Why, racism, obviously. Just look at the players that were suspended!
How hard is it to add up? David Stern = white. Suspended players = black. End of story.
Speaking of racists, NASCAR crowned Kurt Busch the Nextel Cup season champion for 2004. The fans absolutely hate Busch (so much so, that they turned their back on him during his cup celebration after the race), which is why he is now officially my favorite driver. I am going to ask for a Sharpie 97 baseball cap for Christmas, in fact – hopefully Santa will pull through this year.
My Friday football picks weren’t too bad – I went 3/5 in both college and pros. In the NCAAs, I missed Michigan/OSU and Fla/Fla State. In the pros, my beloved Titans & Kelly’s Pack proved me wrong. I am still hoping that the Titans drop the rest of their games so that we can get the best possible draft pick in April. I realize that I’m apparently the only one who feels that way, but that happens to me frequently.
Not that anyone cares, but I was pleasantly surprised with Rick Clausen’s first start for Tennessee on Saturday. He managed the game well – threw some bad passes, but also threw some unexpectely good ones as well. If our defense didn’t suck out loud, the game wouldn’t even have been close. I wish there was a way out of playing Auburn in the SEC Championship game – they’re going to beat us like a stray dog. Especially if we play defense like we did at Vandy on Saturday.
Now back to your regularly scheduled blog-browsing. That’s it for sports for a while, I promise.
