Because I keep the television on something sports related 16-20 hours a day every once in a while I feel obligated to give up the remote control and watch something different. Instead of watching the Lakers game last night I was forced to watch re-runs of the hit show Kourtney and Kim Take New York. It was pure comedy to see how dysfunctional the relationship between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries really was. Other than physical attraction I can't see why those two ever thought their marriage would work. At one point in the show I thought Kris was going to turn to Kim and say "Could you just be quiet and go into the room and get naked?" After putting myself through that torture it's safe to say I will have a kung fu grip on the remote from here on out. Here are some observations over the weekend.
The Bengals and Falcons are a bunch of girlie men that didn't deserve to be in the playoffs to begin with. Sure they were both on the road, but there's no reason not to give it maximum effort. Both teams should be thoroughly embarrassed by their performances.
Losing a playoff game to Tim Tebow is like getting dunked on by Mugsy Bogues. You know he's a professional athlete and anything can happen in sports, but the feeling is still utter disbelief. No matter what he does I can't bring myself to jump on the Tebow Bandwagon.
Give the coaching staff and the players at Syracuse a lot of credit for their ability to handle all the distractions surrounding the program. Amidst the horrible accusations against former assistant Bernie Fine the Orangemen have managed to start the season with 17 straight wins. Impressive.
The Washington Wizards have started the season 0-8 and star player John Wall says he doesn't enjoy playing basketball right now. It's time for coach Flip Saunders to contact his realtor and think about spending more time with his family. He may not make it through the month.
Even though Floyd Mayweather Jr. got his prison term suspended until June 1st Manny Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum has gone on record as saying he will not fight the champ. Arum's excuse? Manny suffered a cut during his fight in November and won't be ready. Pretty flimsy if you ask me.
