Correct me if I'm wrong but we're in basketball season now right? The world of college basketball is down to the Final Four with the so called "Civil War" between Kentucky and Louisville which is sure to be an instant classic. Then the other game that commentators have forgotten, Ohio State vs Kansas for the right to play for the National Championship.
The NBA is still going on with teams starting to make their moves to get into the playoffs. The Miami Heat have lost a couple of games and everyone's panicking but the Heat are one of those teams that can sort of throw a switch to get into playoff mode so I think they'll be alright. Kobe getting benched is another story.
Mike Brown has guts errrr I mean listen dude was coaching, that's why you hired him Mitch Kupchak. The players on the floor were scoring at will and playing excellent, why mess it up by taking a player out for another one...then again when that other player is Kobe Bryant aka your boss errrr I mean star player, that is a brave move to make.
The reason I'm wondering what season we're in is because all we've been hearing about is Peyton Manning, the Colts, the Broncos, the Jets, the Jaguars, and Tim Tebow. Speaking of Tebow did you guys see that hatchet job the NY Post did on Tebow's attire? First they hit him with a "captain of the God Squad" blast. Then they went after his suit calling it an, "imperfectly fitted, light gray two button suit, a blase textured pastel green tie and a snooze worthy white shirt."
I like when they said it was "just an $895 off the rack Hugo Boss suit." Wow! I personally don't care what the hell Tebow wears I just want to know how many of Mark Sanchez's snaps he'll get errrrr I mean how these two are going to coexist. Believe it or not, the NFL is in their off season and I often wondered how these guys spend their time off.
I was going to mention the Saints but everyone's doing that and besides it's too easy. Some players will hit up Spring Break and the club scene like that party animal Rob Gronkowski. Others will take their talents to Dancing with the alleged Stars, and Marshawn Lynch will be filming a western.
The Seattle Seahawks running back will be working with Lee Majors, Edward Furlong, Gary Busey, and Margot Kidder. What Howard the Duck didn't want any of that? Was E.T. busy? This is what happens when Hollywood runs out of ideas, they rehash what has worked before, that's how we get to look forward to Top Gun 2...for the love of God don't do it! But they will, that's stupider than doing the Bourne Identity without Matt Damon...which they are.
The working title of the film is "Matt's Chance" and let's hope that doesn't remain the title. Marshawn, you just signed a $31 million contract with the Seahawks. You are the leader of Skittles nation. You're going Wild West with it? Worse than that you're going has-been with it? Well you know what, I'm sold! I just have to see Marshawn in a movie with the 'Six Million Dollar Man', 'Lois Lane', the crazy dude from 'Point Break', and that brat from Terminator 2...
