Ok. So I did get left out of the name of the blog. That's because I got left out of the blog. But that's probably because I don't talk to any of my friends. But they remembered how much we used to talk sports and I ended up being included. But hey, it's OK, I'm just like Tim Tebow in the NFL, I'm just happy to be here! I have a couple takes on a couple sports bits this summer.
Take #1 - People who hate Kobe Bryant are Robin Hood wanna be communist scum taking from the strong and giving to the poor. They would rather the BEST PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE (today for sure) fail so that the weaker specimen can win. Who in this survival of the fittest world would want that besides your boy President O-B-Boy??? Kobe is the best and he deserves championships because he earns them. People, listen up, don't hate greatness because it's great. Embrace greatness because it doesn't come around very often.
Take #2 - With all due respect, Boyzee State fans are the most confused fan base in the world which results in them either looking like idiots or being idiots. Congratulations. You've done really well in one sport. And by really well I mean you've never won a Div. 1 National Championship in that sport and you've beat up on weak teams in that sport. Should I mention their prowess at other sports? Oh wait, what? Unless they have a really good underwater basket weaving team, I'm pretty sure their bragging rights hinge upon a handful of Not-National-Championship seasons and a couple not Heisman nominee players. But don't get me wrong, I don't blame the players. Boyzee does it's very best with it's PAC-28leftovers. They better watch out now that the Utts are actually in the PAC 12 and will get the PAC 17 leftovers ahead of them.
Take #3 - Socker is not popular in the US because we will never be sufficiently entertained with a whole day of ties. Remember the first day of group play last week? Boring. And hey, this is coming from a guy who can actually sit through 5-10 minutes of socker at a time.
Take #4 - The Spelling Bee and Poker are very entertaining but ESPN spends too much time broadcasting them when they could be broadcasting retro SportsCenter reruns. Think about it. Would it not be awesome to watch a SportsCenter from the Bird-Johnson days. Or watch any other episode that aired after any historic sporting event. ESPN Classic is cool for games and documentaries but so much time is wasted on showing things that aren't even sports.
Those are my takes. Like 'em. Love 'em. Hate 'em. Enjoy 'em.
Peace - The Coach
