1.) The Sixers season is over, but I hope they at least win the next game to prolong the series. We can complain about the foul calls from game one all we want, but the simple fact is that the Heat are a better team. Lebron and Wade just dick around for three quarters, give the Sixers hope and then crush it in the fourth.
I hate them both. Literally hate them. At one point in last night’s game, Lebron missed a foul shot, Lou Williams grabbed the rebound and Lebron chest humped him the entire way down the court. What is a chest hump, you ask? It’s when you run up to the guy with the ball and lean all of your extremities back except for your chest and then thrust it into the player with the ball. I thought Lou was just gonna dribble the ball into the crowd to avoid Lebron’s chest humps. Meanwhile the ref just stood their thinking, “Man, Lebron is so dreamy.” F that guy, I have never wanted anyone to lose and never win a championship more than Lebron. HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE.
2.) Look, I know that I am about 6 months too late, but that song “F you” by Cee Lo is F-ing TERRIBLE. It may be one of the top ten worst songs I’ve ever heard. And this is from a guy who loves Cee Lo from his Goodie Mob and Perfect Imperfections days. But man, that song is God awful. There, I said it. It had to be said.
3.) Did you know that .5 percent of the entire world population are descendants from Genghis Khan? That is 16 million people. Talk about a prolific lover. Leon Phelps ain’t got nothing on Khan (early 2000’s SNL reference anyone?) Also helping is the fact that one of his sons had 40 sons of his own.
4.) The NFL Draft is coming up and since the Raiders don’t have a first round pick, I haven’t been paying too much attention up until this point. But now, I’m immersed. Here are some quick hits:
A.) The Panthers selecting Cam Newton will be a mistake. Take it from a guy who’s team took a great SEC passer instead of a can’t miss receiver in 2007. The parallels between the Panthers in 2011 and Raiders circa 2007 couldn’t be more apparent. The best player in the draft (arguably) is a WR, then it was Calvin Johnson and now it is AJ Green. Both teams desperately need an upgrade at receiver. At the time, Lane Kiffin wanted Johnson in the first and then Trent Green in the second. That is exactly what the Panthers should do in this draft, even though they would need to trade back into the second round. I say, draft AJ Green, or hell even Patrick Peterson. Then trade back into the second to get a QB like Colin Kapernick. OR just stand pat with Jimmy Clausen and draft the can’t miss WR. Mark my words, Cam Newton will disappoint.
B.) The Eagles should draft Jimmy Smith if they have the chance. Yes the guy has character concerns, but you also know who has those? Mike Vick and so far, that has worked out OK. Their secondary sucks (besides Asante) and they could use a guy like Smith who looks like he will be incredible.
C.) The Raiders will trade back into the first round OR they will stay where they are and take a CB or QB. If they do trade into the first round, their target will be Jimmy Smith, for sheezy.
5.) As a child, Elizabeth Bathory (aka Bloody Mary) witnessed a gypsy, who had been accused of selling off his children to some Turks, have his whole body, except for his head, sewn into the stomach of a dying horse and then he was left to die. Holy. Crap. That would suck. Take THAT Human Centipede!
Sorry to leave you on such an uplifting note, but hey, it’s FRIDAY!
