The NCAA is a hypocritical nightmare.
Imagine a world where everyone, from every line of work, NEEDED a Bachelor’s Degree….
The Mets and Yankees demolish bad teams.
Who are you taking with the #1 pick in fantasy football??
Zeke and Melvin Gordon STILL want to get paid!!

Bryce Harper is not the best baseball player in the world. But, he’s still better than you think.
Jake Marisnick may be the most mature person in the world.
Jadeveon Clowney deserves more of your money..trust me.
If you think the Warriors should trade D’Angelo Russell before he ever plays a game for them, you’re a moron.
The New York Yankees forgot how to lose. LeBron James tried something new. And the Seattle Seahawks broke the mold. I’ve probably said this thousands of times, but sports, in the Springtime, is filled with never ending excitement. And this past weekend, was no different….
Yankees ALWAYS Carry A Broom (Just In Case)
The Los Angeles Angels weren’t able to remind the Yankees what losing feels like. Despite their best effort, the Angels were smacked in the face with a broom this weekend. The Yankees swept the Angels, in Anaheim, for the first time since 2003. C.C. Sabathia turned back the clock, again, Sunday night. C.C. gave up just one run over 7 innings, lowering his e.r.a. to 1.71. Not bad for a 37 year old who remains 4,800 pounds overweight. The Yankees held on 2-1, behind a 4th inning moonshot by Gary Sanchez.
The Yankees will ride their nine game winning streak into Houston for a four-game set with the Astros. As optimistic as I am, I don’t see another sweep in the near future. This Yankee fan will take three-out-of-four though.
LeBron, In A 1st Round Game 7?!
Yes, the best NBA player in the world needed seven games to get past the Indiana Pacers. The 1st round, for LeBron James, is normally reserved for sweeping. Not this year. LeBron gave EVERYTHING he had in Game 7. Planning to play the entire game, LeBron’s body, midway through the 2nd half, intervened. Leg cramps forced LeBron to miss five minutes of action. In turn, the pile of mediocrity LeBron calls teammates was forced to contribute. Tristan Thompson turned back the clock, providing his 1st double-double since February 9th (15 points and 10 rebounds), and Kevin Love made a cameo appearance, scoring 14 points.
Side note: Remember when Kevin Love was a top-10 NBA player?! Seems like a lifetime ago….
LeBron posted 45 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals (just another day at the office). And the LeBrons now have the privilege of heading to Toronto to take on the #1 seed, Toronto Raptors. Game 1 is slated for Tuesday @ 8:00 P.M. EST on TNT.
Public Service Announcement: Allow this game to be a lesson to degenerate gamblers everywhere. If you bet on Cleveland to win (-5.5), you’ve probably broken something in your house, or skipped town. Victor Oladipo hit a MEANINGLESS three-pointer as time expired, bringing the score from 105-98, to 105-101.
A Dream Come True
Shaquem Griffin’s life’s work culminated in a phone call from Seattle Seahawks’ general manager, John Schneider.
“That was the phone call I was waiting my entire life,” Griffin said. “I literally broke down after that. I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t know how to talk, I mean, I was just lost for words.”
Griffin, a linebacker from Central Florida, was drafted 141st overall by the Seattle Seahawks (5th round). Griffin, who lost his left hand at the age of four due to a rare condition, became the 1st player with one hand, to be drafted in the NFL. He’ll also join the short list of siblings on the same team, as his brother, Shaquill, was drafted by the Seahawks in 2017.
Griffin is an inspiration for all. No matter the obstacle, you can succeed. No matter the adversity, you can fulfill your dreams. All it takes is a relentless work ethic and positive attitude. That, and approximately 8 million squats, pushups, deadlifts, burpees, wind sprints, tire flips, and pull-ups. You get the idea.

In breaking news, the Melo-Drama has come to an end. The New York Knicks have agreed in principle to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
And a 2nd Round Pick
Melo, being 1 of only 3 players with a No-Trade Clause, must sign-off on the deal. According to league sources, the deal will be complete Monday morning.
Doug McDermott is entering the last year of his rookie contract ($3.3 Million). Kanter is under contract for this year ($20.56 Million) and has a player option for the 2018-2019 season ($18.6 Million).
The Thunder also acquired Paul George this offseason, so it’ll be interesting to see how these new additions meld with Russell Westbrook.
Stay tuned for more details and analysis of the trade once it’s official.
How do my Knicks fans feel?? Are you happy Melo has been traded??

No, seriously, Joe, please make room on the couch.
Yeah, I know this is awkward, but we’re going to need to give your seat away.
Yes, I know he’s ginormous. That’s why we need you to move allllll the way over.
Have yourself a seat Aaron Judge.
Now, by no means am I trying to disrespect or disparage Joe DiMaggio, I am solely seeking to exentuate how incredible Judge has been this season.
Aaron Judge has amazed not only Yankees’ fans, but baseball fans all over the world. He continues to send baseballs into the stratosphere, literally at a record setting pace. When they lend they generally leave Armageddon-Size Craters in earth.
His latest moonshot launched him past DiMaggio, into 1st place on the Yankees’ all-time rookie home run list. A record that has stood for 81 years. The most impressive part?? Judge accomplished this feat in just 84 games!! Insanity!! Judge also joins Mark McGwire as the only rookies to hit 30 home runs before the all-star break. McGwire hit 33 in 1987 (he finished with 49).
It’s hard not to like Aaron Judge. At just 25 years old, he does and says all the right things. Judge’s character doesn’t need checking at the door, as he appears as humble as he is freakishly tall. When asked about breaking this record, he responded, “I wish all 30 were game-winners.” Well take a page out of the never say anything wrong Derek Jeter playbook why don’t ya??
And don’t worry folks. You won’t have to go through Aaron Judge home run withdrawal. Judge will compete in Monday night’s Home Run Derby. I expect him to win –in impressive fashion. The only problem will be when he inevitably regresses to a human level following the All-Star break, and everyone suggests the home run derby somehow ruined his home run hitting groove. Yeah, because that umbrella I opened inside the other day is really ruining my life….
Is Aaron Judge having the most impressive rookie season in MLB history?? Tell me what you think in the comment section below.
