NBA-All Star Weekend Recap

NBA All Star Game Basketball

The West beat the East 146-119. Yes, it was as bad as it sounds. The East led at the beginning but then the West took over and see ya! The East could never fight back. I tell ya, it’s the shoes. The West’s shoes totally dominated the Easts….

How The West Won: Outrebounded 51-38, Out Assisted 37-21,  and Out Stole 13-9 over the East.

    • W Kobe: 27 points
    • W Shaq: 17 points
    • W Amare Stoudemire: 19 points
    • W Tony Parker, Brandon Roy, Pau Gasol and Chris Paul all had 14 points. Paul also had 14 assists!
    • E LeBron James: 20 points
    • E Kevin Garnett: 12 points
    • E Paul Pierce & D.Wade 18 points
  • Co-MVPs: Shaquille O’Neal & Kobe Bryant. Co? Yeah, they wanted to pack as much drama and marketing potential into the moment as possible. Like naming Naomi and Annie Co-Homecoming Queens together on 90210.kevin-durant1
  • Slam Dunk Contest: Nate Robinson, aka KryptoNate, took down the Superman Dwight Howard to become this years champ. His shoes will be talked about for months and everyone is begging Nike to release them to the public
  • Three-point Contest: Daequan Cook, Miami Heat beat Rashard Lewis in a tiebreaker
  • Skills Challenge: Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls, was 4.4 seconds faster than  Devin Harris, New Jersey Nets
  • H-O-R-S-E: Kevin Durant, Oklahoma Thunder, over Joe Johnson and O.J. Mayo
  • Rookie-Sophomore Game:  Sophomores won 122-116. The Sophs have won seven times in a row (hmmm could this game be a little unbalanced??)

Matt Kenseth won The Daytona 500

Officially kicked off the NASCAR season Sunday afternoon! Matt Kenseth, who didn’t win at all during the 2008 season, raced to the finish and took home the, hmmm…. took home whatever you take home when you win a NASCAR event. Car Air Freshener? Everyone loves those!  (Hey, I just began my journey into NASCAR country yesterday. Gimme some time!)

The race was called early due to rain. The cars only drove in circles for 152 laps instead of 200. Like I Twittered yesterday, they should have had the Sarasota 500 because it didn’t rain at my house on the Sun Coast of Florida yesterday (that’s why they call it the Sun Coast…)

On winning, Matt said:
“Man, I don’t know. Winning the Daytona 500 is definitely a dream moment. It’s just an unbelievable feeling.” ~ESPN.com

College Basketball Recap

The Tall Ass Guy on UConn, aka Hasheem Thabeet

The Tall Ass Guy on UConn, aka Hasheem Thabeet

When informed that this was a big Saturday in the world of NCAA b’ball I got a little testy. I may have snapped something like “every freaking week is an important week. I am painfully reminded why I do not watch college basketball until March. It’s demanding, time consuming and does not matter until March!” I had not had my coffee yet.

However, I thought it best to enlist my Special NCAA Men’s Basketball Correspondent for the official rundown of the weekend. He said:

“Jodie Meeks scored 45pts for Kentucky, Blake Griffin had 40pts and 23 rebs for Oklahoma and that tall ass dude on UConn had 23pts, 20rebs and 9 blocks”

Reasons why baseball has bigger money power than football

Baseball attracts millions of spectators, and it makes the largest amounts of money throughout the world.
