Tim Tebow to the Jets….let the magic begin

March 22, 2012

First let me start off by saying that I really am so, so, so sorry for Mark Sanchez…..because the pressure to succeed that he has felt for the past couple of years is going to seem like a soothing bubble bath with his best bud Timmy compared to what he’s going to have to deal […]

Legend Born in Beijing

August 17, 2008

In these days of wars, death, crime, and despair being experienced all around the world, finally we have become witness to a story of imaginable greatness and accomplishing what many thought was truly impossible.  Michael Phelps, a young 23-year old swimmer from Baltimore, not only did he win at the Olympics, not only did he […]

Redeem Team feasts on revenge, courtesy of Greece

August 14, 2008

It seemed like, while watching the game between USA and Greece, that the Americans had shed their smiles and silly attitudes and seriously came to this game to show how dominant they are.  They seemed like a team that knew they were going to win, and there was nothing the other team could do about […]

Spanish Basketball Team is Racist

August 13, 2008

Here is a picture of Spain’s finest (Olympic Basketball Team) mockingly making fun of people of Asian descent with a very obvious gesture of taking their fingers and making their eyes more slanted to imitate the general looks of possibly the Chinese people….and may all in all end up offending more than just one country…..which […]

There are no arguments … Phelps is the greatest Olympian ever!

August 13, 2008

Having won 5 Gold Medals already, and fashionably doing so while breaking of the world records associated with each event, here stands Michael Phelps.  Only 23 years old, and now there is no arguing the fact that he is the single greatest Olympian EVER!  He now has 11 Gold Medals, which a chance to end […]

Team USA becoming favorites—on and off the floor

August 12, 2008

**Here is a recent article that I came across that goes into how popular USA Basketball has become, and also shines some light on how Yao Ming helped bridge the gap between USA and China….well in terms of basketball….but hey, it’s a start.** The U.S. is becoming the home team. That was apparent on Sunday […]

USA Basketball, Swimming, Gymnastics, Track and Field….etc

August 11, 2008

I guess I thought of the USA as a dominant force in athletics around the world but I really didn’t realize how much we dominated.  Besides the silly sports that really haven’t found a spot in the USA’s mainstream (table tennis, badminton, etc) the USA is usually tops or right there in just about every […]

Best Olympic Swimming Race EVER!

August 11, 2008

Did you ever see a swimming race/relay like the one like the 4x100m men’s freesyle relay?  I highly doubt!  The race was one for the ages and one that I will remember for probably the rest of my life…easy.  It had the drama: you have Bernard (from France) talking about “smashing” the Americans, and you […]

Interview With Erin Andrews

August 5, 2008

Here is a real interview that really helps shed some light on the type of person the fabled and idolized ‘ERIN ANDREWS’ is.  I mean we all know that we’d like to see her in Playboy, but to know that she isn’t some stuckup bee-otch is kind of nice also.  So for all of us […]

Manny Ramirez worse than steriods users?

August 5, 2008

Even though I have mad respect for the dude’s ability to play baseball I cannot let myself become infatuated with ‘Manny’ because when you really think about the type of baseball player/man/teammate he is one thing MUST come to your mind………..HE LAYED DOWN AND QUIT ON HIS TEAM BECAUSE OF HIS CONTRACT.  And I find […]
