After weeks of my friends, family, and followers urging me to watch the flick I finally sat down and watched Moneyball. It was an interesting and captivating movie. Kudos to Billy Beane for having the courage to think outside the box and trust his system through failure and success. Of course if he had the Yankees payroll he would have been able to keep Jason Giambi, Johnny Damon, and Jason Isringhausen to go along with Miguel Tejada, Barry Zito, Mark Mulder, and Tim Hudson. That's why the Yankees have rings and the A's have moral victories. Still and yet the ability to compete with such an unfair advantage has to be commended. Here are some observations over the weekend.
Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani got thrown out of a North Carolina St. home game for arguing with the refs. Just goes to show that school spirit is powerful and always a part of you.
Last night Kevin Durant scored 51 points, Russell Westbrook chipped in a cool 40, and Serge Ibaka had a triple double (points, rebounds, and blocked shots). I'm starting to feel like Seattle fans are being tortured Wu-Tang style. The pain is becoming unbearable.
The Charlotte Bobcats would have a tough time beating the Syracuse Orangemen right about now. Michael Jordan should have a word with himself to clear things up.
The last time the UConn men and women lost home games on the same weekend was 1993. Damn!
Mike Mayock didn't have Chris Polk on his list of the top 5 running backs in the NFL draft. I'm starting to lose respect for his opinion. I'm sure the combine next weekend will vindicate one of us.
