The Video

Yes...a tragedy...so unnecessary.

You be the judge:

 

Tragedy on a Dirt Track!

Kevin Ward Jr., 20, was hit and killed Saturday night (8/9/14) during a sprint car race Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York. NASCAR driver Tony Stewart was driving the car that killed Ward. Ward had climbed from his car after a wreck and was standing on the track when he was hit and thrown several yards.

NBC News...Rapper's Delight

We ran across this on a Jimmy Fallon telecast.

Very funny.  Thanks to Brian Williams and NBC news:


A...Georgia...Touch of the "Hall"

Today's Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Ceremony...Had quite a "Georgia on My Mind" feeling.

Consider this:  Tom Glavin, Greg Maddux and Bobby Cox all played or coached in Atlanta.

Joe Torre played and later managed in Atlanta.   Tony La Russa spent a year with the Braves as a player.

And...the "Bit Hurt" himself...Frank Thomas...was born in Columbus, Georgia.

But our three...deserve their due justice:

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen stepping back

"The Broncos are very saddened that Mr. Bowlen is no longer able to be part of the team's daily operations due to his condition," the team said in a statement. "We continue to offer our full support, compassion and respect to 'Mr. B,' who has faced Alzheimer's disease with such dignity and strength."

The "Payne" Truth

Last night, the ..."Association"...known around these parts as the NBA...held their annual draft.

Our beloved Atlanta Hawks had the 15th pick...and...

Selected a 4 year college player out of Michigan State.

His name is Adreian Payne and he is 6feet 10 inches tall.

The mere fact he stayed in college all 4 years should raise a red flag to the obvious.

But these are the Hawks.  Mediocrity...  win 40 games...make the playoffs...lose in the 1st round.

Nod....if you've heard this before.

We have no quarrel with Mr.  Payne.  Our quarrel lies with the Hawks management...or lack there of.

How many 7 feet stiffs...are already in this league?  Riding the bench....night after night.

The league has changed.   It's about who can shoot the three pointer....and who can get physical on defense. (See San Antonio vs. Miami).

The Hawks drafted a big man...They need scorers.  Maybe this big man will make liars out of us and not only defend the paint...but shoot 3's too!

Wishful thinking?

Anyway here is Mr. Payne's bio...courtesy of Wikipedia:

We we hate Soccer...in the USA

America wins...when they lose?

The clock runs forward...instead of counting down?

They add...minutes to the game?

There are no...."TV" timeouts?

This...is ...us.   We need structure.....4 quarters....a halftime show.  A shot clock!  Instant replay.

"Fut-ball"  just doesn't do it.

 

AMERICA WINS 0 - 1

A Strange...Game 1

No air-conditioning...No LeBron ...No Miami victory.

Strange game last night.  For three and a half quarters it was nip and tuck.  Close.

100 degrees on the floor.   Then James goes out.

Spurs win.

Strange game...this game 1!

From the San Antonio paper:

 

"Cramping" ...His Style?

I have never had a cramp.   But I have been around athletes who have...and women who have them monthly.

So all these haters?  Take a chill pill.  Give King James a break.
