Stuff I Would Forward To My Buddies 3/31/09 Edition

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Just once I want to go there before I die. (Deadspin) Wow, it sure would suck if no other team picks him up. (ESPN) I believe this wholeheartedly.  Or at least leads to depression medication. (Shutdown Corner) Who would sleep with this guy? (Big League Stew) It worked for the Eagles.  Even the stupid ...

Could Anybody Ever Grow A Beard Faster Than Him?

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

The Sacramento Kings of the late 90's and early millennium were a sight to behold.  I enjoyed watching them play as much if not more than the Suns led by Mike D'Antoni.  I think Rick Adelman is one of the most underrated coaches in sports history.  He's won everywhere he's ...

The Wright Stuff

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Listening to Jay Wright, it's very easy to see how he keeps getting good recruiting classes to the Villanova in the suburbs of Philadelphia.  I'm not kidding when I say this, he might be the most likable interview guest I've heard.  It never truly seems like an interview, it just ...

The Big, Goofy Kid Who Can Ball… A Lot

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

23.  23 freakin' years old.  At that primo age, Dwight Howard became the youngest player to collect 5000 rebounds last night.  Dwight still has no idea what he'll become as a player.  Sure, he's leading the league in blocks and rebounds per game, and that might make you say, "Hey, ...

Nothing Like A Cocky Owner

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Owners are some of the more interesting figures in sports.  You have Mark Cuban and all his schtick.  Arthur Blank and the world's thinnest mustache.  Jerry Jones and his face-lift.  Paul Allen and his reclusiveness.  George Steinbrenner and his turtlenecks and 'Boss' persona.  Al Davis and his sweatsuits and glasses ...

Just Like Real Estate, Good Time To Buy In Sports, Bad Time To Sell

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

My buddy Lance Zimmerman did such a nice job with the Jamie Moyer post, I figured I'd give him another shoot.  Here's his post on former agent and the new Padres owner, Jeff Moorad.  If you're interested in sports business, this is good stuff. Jeff Moorad just agreed in principle to ...

Jason Taylor Is A Wanted Man

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Jason Taylor will tell you he had an off year last season, but that bodes well for the team that gets his name on a contract.  Even though he'll be 35 when the season kicks off, Taylor is a highly motivated guy and a world talent.  More importantly, he's a ...

Brad Faxon Talks About Tiger, Taking the Field at the Masters and Costs of Missing the Cut

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Brad Faxon, one of the more underrated players on the PGA Tour, got on the horn with Dennis and Callahan (who he's apparently boys with)  of WEEI recently to talk about Tiger's ridiculous win at Bay Hill. Faxon was hanging around near Tiger at the end of Bay Hill, and ...

Tom Izzo Talks Prepping for Louisville and Dogs the Refs for Screwing Illinois in 2005

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Tom Izzo popped into the Waddle and Silvy show on Monday, presumably to chat about Michigan State and their chances of winning the title in Detroit this year (I mean ... duh, right? Yeah, duh.) Instead, Waddle and Silvy decided to ask him about prepping for Louisville and "home court ...

Al Horford Talks About the Celtics, Billy Donovan, and the NCAA Tourney

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Al Horford and the Atlanta Hawks have had unprecedented success (for Atlanta, anyway) in the past few years, and a lot of the media love they receive stems from taking the Boston Celtics to seven games last year in the playoffs. Of course, many folks think the Hawks match up ...
