For those who follow the NFL know that it is crunch time as teams make a push for the final playoff spots. The big suprise has been in the AFC North talk about Wacky Wednesdays, as the Bengals of all teams has clinched the division and the Ravens and the Steelers fight for the wildcard spots. This past weekend the Ravens played the Steelers head to head with a chance to all but guarantee a playoff spot and had a chance to take the lead in the game late in the fourth quarter 2 different times but got on their knees and blew the game. In the words of Ed Lover: "C'mon SON!" "Get the f*ck outta here with that Bullsh*t!"
If you havent heard Artest rap before, here you go as he goes in on a nice beat sharing a little about his past(he is 2nd verse). He's not bad. The title refers to Artest recently stating that while he played for chicago he used to drink henny at halftime and before games.
A lot of hype has surrounded this kid for the last couple years, especially during the last few months now that he's lighting it up at Kentucky. I'm telling you now: believe it. This kid is the real deal. Some prognosticators believe that he is more developed at this stage during his freshman year than Derrick Rose was 2 years ago. He is bigger, a better leaper, and a much better defender than Rose, with just as good of a handle (just watch the highlights), but perhaps a tad less speed than his Memphis predecessor. By all reasonable accounts Wall should end up as the number one pick in the draft this spring. As Wall and the aforementioned Rose (who I actually like a lot, by the way--I am just that sold on Wall) continue to develop, the NBA could be entering an unprecedented era of point guards with Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Steve Nash, Tony Parker, Jason Kidd, Devin Harris, Chauncey Billups, and Gilbert Arenas having already established themselves as perennial All-Stars and with Rajon Rondo, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Brandon Jennings, and Tyreke Evans waiting in the wings. Just watch out for Wall. He could be better than them all.
This is Steve's first post. Glad to be contributing to "KindBombs," the new Sports/Music/Movies/Culture blog that will certainly be taking Wash U and other institutions by storm this spring. Lets get it started:
I was at the Washington Huskies/Texas A&M Basketball game the other night and witnessed this gruesome injury in person. Crazy situation. They stopped play for what seemed like at least 15 minutes. Below is the video of one of the more graphic injuries of the last few years. The most recent injury I can think to compare it to would be Allan Ray's violent eye injury in a Villanova game a couple years back. After showing that initial footage of Rowland's leg, Fox Sports decided not to air a replay of the play during which his leg was broken or show any additional footage of the leg as it was deemed too graphic for television. Happy to report that Rowland is back in Texas after surgery on his leg and all signs point to a full recovery. Unbelievable story.
Everyone is jumpin on it, the paparazzi is the new Tsunami and a huge Tiger(Tidal) Wave has hit us! This is my favorite Tiger song complete with a dance with his patented celebratory fist pump! Sucks that the media has to destroy people by gettin all up in their personal business but just ride the wave and enjoy this song... hole in one
