I wanted to put some feedback out there on some of the things that have been going on in sports, but haven't really had a chance to due to a badass weekend. Anywho:
-The NFL Draft's first and second rounds were yesterday. The Bucs only had one pick and that was quarterback Josh Freeman from Kansas State. You know, I don't mind addressing a need at quarterback (because they have one), but why say you were happy with Luke McCown, and whatever other scrub was with the franchise and earlier this week sign Byron Leftwich? I just don't understand why you spend the pick on a quarterback when there's more pressing needs on defense. Like at linebacker and defensive tackle. And not only did they spend the pick on a quarterback (and one that is supposedly "developmental"), but they traded their sixth round pick just to move up two spots. And they jumped Denver to do it too, who I'm almost sure wasn't going to draft him considering they needed defense like a motherfucker (and drafted Knowshon Moreno with the 12th pick in the draft). I might look back on this and say "oh, well Josh Freeman is the quarterback on the future" but when the defense is so old and can't contain shit, I'm not quite sure Josh Freeman's arm is going to come to the rescue. And the Jet's trading the Browns trash (first round, second round picks and three garbage players) to get Mark "The Dirty" Sanchez. Jet fan kills me. They blow the draft out of proportion and truly believe that Mark Sanchez is the answer to all of their quarterbacking problems. The games were Sanchez' met adversity in his short run as a starting quarterback at USC, he was awful. Just imagine how bad he's going to be against better competition and more adversity? Dude has as much chance seeing the field as science has correcting Stuart Scott's lazy eye.
-These new Gatorade Tiger commercials officially annoy me. I like Tiger, but it seems like the media makes me want to love him but just push me in the other direction. Just watch this trash:
What's up with the creepy animals? Review the cast:
Scott Van Pelt as "Bald Stalking Gopher"
Mike Tirico as "Cliche' advice giving old Owl"
Kelly Tilghman as "Attractive Blonde Squirrel"
And the problem is, these people slurp Tiger in real life. So perhaps these depictions were supposed to represent real life? And here are some more questions... why are they the only ones watching baby Tiger play golf alone in the forest? And Steve Williams as a giant rat? This commercial confuses me.
-Celtics/Bulls series has been flat up ridiculous. I've been loving the Playoffs so far... now if the Magic would quit blowing games like assclowns and beat the 'Sixers tonight.
Anyways, that's all I got. I got serious blog coming later in the day.
