Some Sports Thoughts

Okay, so it’s been a little while since I’ve posted sports thoughts, well since the end of the football season I guess.  So here’s a bunch real quick:

-  So I could have commented on this when it actually happened, and now it’s almost pointless because enough people have talked about it (check sports guy on ESPN Page 2 here), but what in the hell is Isaiah Thomas thinking?  My jaw dropped to the floor when I heard he traded for Steve Francis, and my next thought was “Okay, so he must be setting up another trade.”  Nope.  Just wanted Steve Francis, Stephon Marbury, and Jamal Crawford all on the same team.  Brilliant.  Are there any Knicks fans left?  Seriously, who is going to those games?

-  Let the Shaun King era begin!!! I’ve been dying for there to be a “Buy your Shaun King jersey here!” link on the Lions homepage.  Oh man, that just makes me laugh.

-  Spring Training has begun, and hearing Pat and Ron commenting on the Cubs games is like getting reacquainted with an old friend.  It always feels so good when baseball starts up again (although the snow outside in Michigan right now tells a different story).  I haven’t really decided how I plan on handling my baseball thoughts, if I want to do a weekly thing or just random thoughts, but the only thoughts I have now about the Cubs is “You gotta love their chances.”  I do think that, although we have more question marks than the riddler (wow, that was bad), but I think the whole division does too.  Maybe I’ll do a division preview or something, since I just don’t feel like I know enough to do a full league preview.

–   March Madness is so the best sporting event ever.  I can’t wait.

–   Free Agency for the NFL will begin soon (provided they can figure out a stupid CBA.  I hate all that stuff), and let’s see how the Bears address some of the to do list that I’ve mentioned.  More on that later.

So I guess that’s it for now.

  1. Yah, so the NFL came close to destroying all they’ve built in the last decade by almost letting the cba expire…uncapped 2007, no draft after 2008…Al Davis actually believes a competing league would have started in 2008 or 09 if the owners didn’t extend the CBA yesterday. It’s a good thing they got it done because the fan base would have significantly dwindled when the NFL became like MLB where the big market teams mostly dominate the playoffs and the brewers and royals play for .500 every year in front of 12,000 fans. As a boston sports fan, I reap the benefits of routing for big-market teams, but honestly, the NFL has been more exciting a league to follow as a whole because every team has the opportunity to succeed in any given season (insert Arizona Cardinals joke here).

    But they got it done in the end, and now a very interesting offseason begins with some big names already out there on the free agent market. The patriots just released Willie Mcginist and his 7 million a year cap number. He’s 34 years old, but he’s still a great OLB and I hope that we actually resign him to a new contract that better fits our cap. Drew Breeze and his shoulder hits the free agent market. TO will get a chance somewhere. Dante Callpepper is rumored to be done in Minnesota with Miami, Baltimore, and a few other intriguing teams interested.

    This will be one of the most interesting NFL offseasons in a long time, so if you like football, don’t ignore it until September this year! 🙂
