Not much on the agenda so we’ll make today everyone’s favorite day… Grab Bag Day. Hip, hip, hooray!!!
>>> The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are possibly interested in signing Barry Bonds. I say go for it. A lot of people are sick of seeing Bonds play baseball and no one see the Rays play.
>>> Floyd Mayweather is going to wrestle in the WWE’s WrestleMania. The 5’8”, 150 pounder is going up against The Big Show, a supposed 7 foot, 500 pound man. I’m not even sure what to expect here. I haven’t watch the WWF in about eight years. But at the “press conference” Mayweather needed to stand on a chair just to get in the face of The Big Show (and by face I mean mid chest, neck area). This may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I don’t even know what to make of it or to make a joke of it but I felt like you people should know the WWE is still out there and you still aren’t missing anything.
>>> The ugliest man in college basketball, Ohio State’s Kosta Koufos, is not only the ugliest man in college basketball, but the biggest mama’s boy too. Here’s a brief part of a story about this in the Akron Beacon Journal this morning.
When center Kosta Koufos hits the hardwood at Value City Arena, his eyes invariably look to the stands for his mother.
He also seeks out his mother after games so she can critique his performances, a practice she resisted at first, but eventually agreed to.
My goodness Kosta. You’re a college man now. You shouldn’t need your mom to tell you how to play basketball. For god sake she named you Kosta. She obviously takes bad advice so what makes you think she could give you good advice. No wonder why Big Ten basketball sucks. Moms are telling them how to play.
>>> Rumors out of the best run franchise in the NBA have James Dolan ready to fire Isiah Thomas. The straw has finally broke the camel’s back. No it wasn’t the sexual harassment case. No, it was the horrible team for four years. No, it wasn’t Isiah taking on overpaid player after overplayed player. No, it wasn’t even the fact that they are more of a laughing stock than the Clippers were in the early 90s. The final reason was Thomas isn’t playing Eddy Curry enough. Yes, Eddy Curry. I think more people would rather see Eddy Winslow on the floor over Eddy Curry.
>>> The Cavs play at Milwaukee tonight. Andy Varejao is expected to be back. That will give the Cavs their full front line. Z, Wallace, Joe Smith and Andy. It will be interesting to see how Mike Brown rotates them. It could take a few games to find the right combinations. You can’t really have Wallace and Andy on the floor at the same time. That would be like playing 3-on-5 offensively and the Cavs might never score. But on the flip side, they are the two best defenders the Cavs have so maybe the other team would never score either. I think with Z and Wallace starting, Smith and Andy will come in and take over towards the end of the first quarter. Brown will get a feel to who is having the better game and use those two down the stretch. As hard as it might be to get them all minutes and get the right guys on the floor, I’d rather have this problem then deciding between Donyell Marshall, Ira Newble or Drew Gooden to put in the game. When in doubt, just put in Billy Thomas and let him shoot.
