NBA Playoffs Preview – First Round

This is written by somebody who we are hoping will become a regular contributor. His name is Adam and he actually knows and follows the NBA which -as many of you know- is something we’ve been missing from this website. Either way, here’s his preview for the playoffs:

First off, I would like to say that I live in the greatest state for the NBA…Missouri, with two major cities St. Louis and Kansas City and a combined number of zero teams. So that means I have no team, but I love the NBA and always have since I can remember, of course I grew up a Bulls fan (who didn’t)!

The NBA seems to be somewhat rejuvenated from a competitive standpoint with a crop of true Superstars in LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and many more. Sure the defense is still lax for most of the game during the regular season, but for the Playoffs it is different. That’s why I’ve always said that for the casual basketball fan or the NBA hater that the NBA Playoffs are the time to watch. It’s when the greatest players in the world play their hardest and for the NBA fan, it’s the best time of the year! Continue reading

Hull City A.F.C. Tigers

Bryan and I are in the same boat right now when it comes to finding things to write about. When I read his most recent post he mentioned that he would be writing more about soccer and I figured I would try to jump on that bandwagon. Unfortunately for me, I don’t know much about soccer and this will be my first ever soccer post. Buckle your seatbelts because this could get a little rough. All I really know is that my favorite EPL team is Hull City, so I figured that would be a good place for me to start. Back in December I wrote this post about which team in each major (and one not-so-major) sporting league was my favoirte and why. In that post I revealed my newly found favorite EPL team to be Hull City. Well in the 2007-08 season they successfully made the promotion to the EPL for the first time in club history. Then last year (2008-09) they avoided relegation, edging out Newcastle United by just one point. Unfortunately, this year it looks like they’re going to need something similar to happen in order to, once again, evade the fate of being relegated. Continue reading

Where Might I Find Michael Vick in 2009?

Last year around this time I wrote a post (I’m actually just one week short of it being the exact same date) breaking down each team’s quarterback situation. You can check that out here. This post is going to be similar except it will be to specifically address whether or not each team has a need for Michael Vick and if they do, how much of a need it is. Some teams may need him simply because they need a quarterback, while others might be looking to use him in the Wildcat formation. Just today on ESPN.com’s NFL rumors section they said that the Redskins may be interested in Vick. I’d be interested as to what our commenter, Michael, who is a Redskins fan, thinks about this.

The Oklahoma City Thunder (Yes, Again)

About a month ago I wrote a post, “The Oklahoma City Thunder (Again)” as a follow up to Bryan’s post, “The Oklahoma City Thunder.” Well here I am writing a third post in the series. I felt inclined to do this when I learned that this Oklahoma City Thunder team, was originally going to be called The Oklahoma City Barons. I actually already knew this, and I also knew that there were multiple other names that were possible candidates for the team. What I didn’t know however is how different the uniforms would have looked.

Now tell me that these don’t look infinitely better than the actual jersey that the Oklahoma City Thunder will be wearing. (Show below)

Tell me which jersey you think looks better in the below poll.

Oklahoma City Thunder (Again)

As a follow up to the post that Bryan wrote a few weeks ago, I’m writing to show you all that the Oklahoma City Thunder now have a jersey to match their hideous logo. Here’s what their home jersey looks like:

I personally don’t think the jerseys are quite as bad as the logo, but they’re still very bland. I want some originality from a team in this situation. But we can’t always get what we want. I guess it won’t be too long before we see how Kevin Durant and company look in their new uniforms. Here’s a look at the away jerseys which are signigicantly worse in my opinion.

That is just pathetic. What is this? A jersey from a Salvation Army league? I certainly won’t be buying one. If you disagree with me please feel free to share your opinions in a comment in case there’s something that you see that I’m missing here. I’ve certainly never claimed to have an eye for fashion or art of any kind, so let me know what you think.
