For all of you that think I'm too critical of reality TV vixens I hope the events of this weekend put things in their proper context. Former all pro wide receiver Chad Johnson was cut by the Miami Dolphins after being arrested Saturday night for alleged assaulting his wife Evelyn Lozada. At least they were happy for the first month of their marraige. Miami was Chad's best chance to make an NFL roster so the fight effectively ended his football career. I'd like to feel sorry for Chad Johnson, but my conscience won't allow it. Anyone stupid enough to get into a relationship with a professional groupie known for hooking up with athletes deserves to suffer the consequences.
This thing had train wreck written all over it from the word go so the outcome is somewhat predictable. Now Chad has to look himself in the mirror and say " I let Antoine Walker's old girl and Kenny Anderson's side piece ruin my career, tarnish my image, and destroy my legacy." Happy trails Chad. I'm sure we'll see you on the NFL Network in no time. Evelyn Lozada strikes again. Here are some observations over the weekend.
The good news for Kevin Durant is he won a gold medal in London and set the record for most points scored in one Olympics. The bad news is while he was leading Team USA to victory the Lakers re-tooled behind his back and now the championship is out of his reach. The signing of Dwight Howard (along with Steve Nash and Antawn Jamison) puts LA in the drivers seat to win the West. They are definitely on a collision course to meet Miami in the 2013 NBA finals. Vegas has both of them at 8-5to win the chip.
Tyrann Mathieu loves weed more than fame and fortune. The LSU standout cornerback was dismissed from the team for failing a drug test and unfortunately this means the Tigers will not win the national championship. They have depth at every position, but the honey badger was special. His presence won't easily be replaced.
The Seattle Seahawks will have a top 5 defense this year if they stay disciplined and stop over pursuing on screen plays. From what I saw against Tennessee it's going to be very difficult to throw on this secondary.
Jamaica set the world record in the 4x100 meter relay with a time of 36.84. If you do the math that means the 100 meter splits were 9.21 seconds. As if those numbers weren't mind boggling enough they did this without former world record holder Asafa Powell on the team. Unreal.
