Hey FanNation, how goes it? The NBA wrapped it up last week (thank goodness!). The NBA draft is tomorrow. I've only really heard of about 5-6 players who will be drafted tomorrow. Is it just me, or is this a sign of the result of more and more early draft entrants? I used to sit glued to the tv to see the draft because of all the juniors and seniors who had spent the better parts of their college years playing, and me getting to know them. Now, unless you follow a specific team and possibly see a player a couple of times, you really have no clue who they are. I will comment on this John Wall fellow. Is he the second coming of Rajon Rondo or what? Mad hoop skills, quick, athletic, excellent defensive prowess, but can't shoot the ball to save his life. And both from Kentucky, what are the odds? I don't wish anyone bad luck, but he better find a semblance of an outside jumper if wants to survive in DC. Because other than Arenas, the pickings are slim for scorers. My Jazz are picking 9th. Highest pick since getting Derron Willimas. Hopefully there is a difference maker who can come in and help right away.
US Open.....brutal. I couldn't watch it. It reminded me of me playing golf.....bad news! Albert Haynesworth........holy crap, what a whiny little girl. Just shutup and play ball, even in a 3-4. Marcos Ambrose.........gave that race away. Moral of the story, keep the dang engine running!! LeBron........I officially don't give a frogs fat **** where he plays. Landon Donovan.......the man!! US Soccer in the Knockout round where anything can happen. France showed us their new method of surrendering. Protest a little when there's some adversity, and then not show up for battle. Classic choke!! Baseball approaching the mid-season. This is when it starts getting good. Hopefully we get some close races come September. Training camps.......right around the corner. Can the Saints repeat? Can Tom Brady get his mind off that goddess wife and focus on football? Will Rex Ryan live up to all the hype he's generating? Where in the world will TO play? And who will Jessica Simpson be dating? Just some questions to ponder as football draws closer.
That's it folks. Thanks for checking in. All comments are welcome. Have a great week, and until next time, this is life as I see it.
