The HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week

That was disgusting! If you’ve been watching the NCAA Tournament you know exactly what I’m talking about. There’s probably even a few viral videos about this already.   I advise anyone with a weak constitution to not read beyond this point.   That’s what happened to Louisville’s Kevin Ware’s right leg when he tried to ...

Comparing The Sacramento and Seattle Arena Deals

The Cities of Seattle and Sacramento have put forward two arena deals; one City is trying to regain what it lost five years ago, and the other is trying to save what it already has (for the third time in the last three years). Not only do these Cities have solid arena deals, they also ...

The HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week

It’s amazing how many things can happen in the world of sports in such a short amount of time. It was hard to choose the moment that really stood out to me this week.  I was planning on doing a double-feature on Brandon Knight getting dunked on by Deandre Jordan and Jason Terry getting dunked ...

Sacramento Has A Term Sheet, Now We Wait

I’m pleased to announce an agreement w/ Burkle-Mastrov-Ranadive group on a public-private partnership to build a new ESC at DT Plaza Mall… — Kevin Johnson (@KJ_MayorJohnson) March 23, 2013 But wait! There’s more! For a comparable investment to the 2012 deal, we've secured more private investment & greater econ development potential at the new site… ...

The Big Question Everybody Seems to Be Asking; Are The Oakland Athletics For Real?

Last season the Oakland Athletics caught everybody off-guard by winning the American League West. It was a stunning run that saw the Athletics take advantage of the Rangers epic collapses. Their run left baseball fans everywhere stunned, and surprised; the reality though is that it shouldn’t have. Their run has left baseball fans wondering if ...

The MADNESS Has Returned

Today is the tip-off of March Madness, and office’s are going to get absolutely nothing done for the rest of the month. This time of the year marks the return of the fake spreadsheets, the nervously glancing over your shoulder to see if your boss/teacher. My senior year of High School I actually developed a twitch in ...

Timothy Bradley & Ruslan Provodnikov Create Something Special

The crowd for the Timothy Bradley (30-0 12 KO) vs. Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2 15KO) wasn’t exactly the biggest crowd ever, but it certainly was one of the most privileged as Bradley and Provodnikov engaged in one of the most violent and entertaining fights of the year so far. No one who witnessed this bout will ...

Cliff Avril Bring Pass Rushing Ability to The Hawks

Cliff Avril was confident going into free agency, he felt like he was one of the best defensive ends in the league. In fact he felt like he was going to get a contract similar to Mario Williams. Instead there wasn’t very much interest from teams around the league. That being said, nothing really broke ...

Some Rambling Thoughts On The Cougar Men’s Team Disastrous Season

As I write this intro paragraph, the Cougs spirited comeback against cross-state rival the University of Washington failed; just like every other comeback this season. This season has been brutal on the fans, players, and program. It has also put the man in charge of the program in a very bad spot with a good ...

State of Cougar Basketball

Washington St (13-18, 4-14 Pac-12) Washington (17-14, 9-9 Pac-12) It’s amazing what a win can do for a team.  In this case though, the Washington State Cougars have won two in a row entering the PAC-12 Conference Tournament. One of those wins was over UCLA, the #1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament. Now I’m not ...

WSU Women’s Basketball; The Season Recap And A Look at The Underclassmen’s Playing Time.

Early on in Conference play I wrote this piece on my blog analyzing how Coach June Daugherty was using the underclassmen at that point in the season. For those of you who are not inclined to go take a look at what I wrote; I concluded that Daugherty had decided that this season was about developing the ...

(2) Indiana 72 (26-5, 14-4 Big Ten) (7) Michigan 71 (25-6, 12-6 Big Ten) The Michigan Wolverines should change their name to the Washington State Cougars. They borrowed a page from WSU’s playbook and decided to “Coug It” in the final minute. Up 71-66 with 52 seconds to go the Wolverines had the game in ...

WSU Does Rare Thing And Beats #23 UCLA In Pullman For The First Time Since 1993

  I honestly did not want to go to tonight’s game, I’m not going to lie. This team was poised to get its ass kicked, and I have this thing called school to worry about. Thank you Melinda Lee and Scott Vic for getting me out to Beasley to learn the ropes on the replay ...

A Word of Caution Regarding Spring Training

Spring Training is a time of uncontrolled optimism among baseball fans, especially for the teams that are absolutely kicking ass down in the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues. This year the teams that have the top five in winning percentages are the Kansas City (1.000), Mariners (.909), Baltimore (.778), Tampa Bay (.667), and Cleveland (.615). Of these five ...

The HOHOHOrrible Moment of the Week

I actually was watching Tosh.0 on Tuesday when I saw this, but regardless this is pretty low. In November youth hockey coach Martin Tremblay plead guilty to assault when he allegedly tripped a Vancouver youth hockey player.  The player broke his wrist during the fall. I’m not even a hockey fan and I’m demanding that ...
