Sports Recap - Friday, January 13th (FRIDAY THE 13TH EDITION)
It’s Friday the 13th everyone…spooky (Jim Jones voice)…Happy Friday! Today we’ll cover some NBA action, Penn State, BCS and our NFL Picks!
First we’ll head to Oakland for the Warrors vs. Magic last night. It was a Hack-A-Dwight night yesterday, and boy did Dwight respond. 45 points, 23 rebounds, 1 trade demand…as a Nets fan I sure hope that last part doesn’t change. Holy moly, that line is ridiculous. The previous trade proposal included up to 5 future 1st round draft picks, if I’m NJ I include the draft picks, Soprano DVD’s, Gov. Chris Christie, anyone from the Jersey Shore, and Rutgers University. Anything to bring Dwight to Jersey, that man is a beast.
The Miami Heat play the Denver Nuggets tonight…I heard Tebow is playing center for the Nuggets now.
Scott Paterno needs to SHUT THE HELL UP….He said the following, “As has become apparent, the termination on November 9, with no notice or hearing, was not handled well.” Hey Scott, do you know what else wasn’t handled well? When your father allowed a child molester at Penn State University, knew he was raping children and did NOTHING. I realize the NCAA probably won’t do anything, but if there’s ever a situation for the Death Penalty this is it. Give me a break, they allowed a child molester to continue to attack children for YEARS, and now they’re angry Joe wasn’t fired in the correct way. Give me a break. The Paterno family is a disgrace and needs to go away.
The NCAA president favors a 4 team college football playoff. Hey, its not perfect, but anything is better than nothing. MAKE IT HAPPEN.
NFL Divisional Series Weekend——YEAH BABY
New Orleans Saints (-4) vs. San Francisco 49ers.
I’m going with the Saints giving 4 points against the 49ers. I realize the Saints aren’t as strong on the road as they are at home, but damn that offense is ridiculous. I think they have 8 WR’s, their TE is the best in the game and he used to be a basketball player. The Saints bar in NYC is Bar None too, can’t hate on that.
Denver Broncos (+13.5) vs. New England Patriots
I’m taking Denver Broncos getting 13.5 points against the Patriots. The Pats will win this game, but not by two touchdowns. TebowMania has gone full throttle on ESPN…yesterday during a single hour of SportsCenter the word “Tebow” was mentioned 160 times. Imagine this guy made it to the Super Bowl…holy shit. There was a rumor that Tebow is currently dating Katy Perry…imagine Tebow did a full 180 and started dating Kim Kardashian. He’s America’s most popular athlete and she’s one of America’s most despised people. Who wins out, does Tim fix Kim’s popularity or does Kim bring Tim back down to hell that is the Kardashian clan. I don’t think anyone can escape the Kardashian hate, and considering Tebow is so polarizing to begin with, there would be no coming back. Well anyways….
Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens (-7.5)
Baltimore cruises. The best part of NFL broadcasts are the player introductions on NBC. Unfortunately, no games will be played on NBC this week. If there were I’d want to see the Ravens, Texans game. Terrell Suggs is from Ball So Hard University fyi.
New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers (-7.5)
I like Green Bay giving up 7.5 points. The Giants receivers are dangerous, but Green Bay is something else. Aaron Rogers is a beast, their backup QB threw up 450+ yards, a well oiled machine that will beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
