Warriors Clinch History

Posted in Bill's Blog
When Steph Curry brought the ball up the court, had a crossover dribble to the left, then spun to the right around the Spurs Jonathan Simmons and capped off the highlight move by miraculously hitting a layup, high off the glass, as he fell to the floor….well, it was over and the Spurs looked as if they knew it. While it was only 4 minutes and change into the game, the Warriors had clinched history.  The Warriors are the first team to ever go 12-0 entering the NBA Finals since the league went to it’s current format back in 2003. The Cavs have had a mis-step vs.… Read the rest

The Big Beard Of Power Is Clean

Posted in Bill's Blog
The Brewers Eric Thames has come back to Major League Baseball in a big way.  He has slugged 11 home runs and we’re still in April my friends.  Now, he’s owned Cincinnati Reds pitching with 8 of those dingers but that’s beside the point.  After slugging in obscurity in the Korean Baseball League, and now his wall banging success in the bigs, rumblings are beginning to surface about the possibility of “enhancements”, whether in Korea or current. Well, here are 3 reasons that you can seemingly rest easy if you’re a Brewers fan.
1.  Thames was tested numerous times in Korea, and not by the KBL but by the same independent agency that tests their Olympic athletes and all of Thames tests came back negative.… Read the rest

With The 29th Pick In The 2017 Draft

Posted in Bill's Blog
Ted Thompson’s recent drafts haven’t really produced that special player, at least not yet.  Now, those last 2 draft classes really can’t be judged for another year or two but one thing we can say is that Aaron Rodgers’, Nick Collins’, Clay Matthews’ type talent hasn’t surfaced. The Packers are in desperate need of pass rushers and corners defensively and a running back and a guard offensively. With those thoughts in mind as the 2017 draft approaches, what specific need do the Packers fill with their first pick? I know it’s an unpopular answer for many of you but if I’m Ted, I take the best player available.… Read the rest

Mommy Serena Will Be Back

Posted in Bill's Blog
The big story of the day, Aaron Hernandez killed himself.  Move on, nothing more to see here. So let’s talk about the positive, the success and the good in life…..or life in general.  At the age of 35, the 23 time major champion, Serena Williams has announced that she’s pregnant.  In addition to the photo of the baby bump, the mom-to-be will not play tennis again this season.  Williams is also engaged to be married. While Williams did announce that she will return in 2018, you have to wonder; with more money that she’ll ever know what to do with, major championships in her back pocket, a new born and the joys of motherhood on the horizon, how much fire to play the game that has given her so much will she have?… Read the rest

Fixing Everything In The Draft Is Unlikely

Posted in Bill's Blog
We are 2 weeks away from the 2017 NFL Draft.  The Green Bay Packers will soon be on the clock and the angst of every Packers fan will be running high. Why? Because without an upgraded defense, there’s only so much Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense can do in regards to getting Green Bay to another Super Bowl. How much, realistically, can the defense be upgraded through the draft?  A little but not as much as is actually needed. GM Ted Thompson will have to hit on at least 3 defenders, 2 if which have to be pass rushers, and by hit I mean these rookies will have to play at nearly a pro bowl level. … Read the rest

NCAA Investigation Of UNC; Disgusting

Posted in Bill's Blog
The University of North Carolina is only 9 days away from winning the NCAA tourney.  Some, love the Tar Heels.  Others, let’s just say they’re not Tar Heel fans.  The rest, think the Tar Heels, and their head coach Roy Williams, are cheaters who didn’t deserve to even be in the tourney in the first place. University of Maryland President Wallace Loh said that the UNC’s academic scandal, and the lengthy NCAA investigation, “abysmal” and then stated, “implementation of the death penalty” could be a fitting punishment, according to a published report in the Carolina News & Observer. While North Carolina may eventually be punished for the alleged academic fraud charges revolving around the African and Afro-American “no show classes”, it’s the NCAA that should be absolutely ashamed of itself.… Read the rest

2017 Has Arrived For The Cubs And Their Fans

Posted in Bill's Blog
The Chicago Cubs have raised their banner and celebrated their world series.  108 years of toil, anonymity, monikers of losing, jokes and strife have now ended. And so a new era begins.  One of defense, being the hunted and hopeful repetition. A dynasty in the making?  Who knows?  Time will tell.  Time will tell, not the flowing obnoxiousness from Cubs fans.  To be a dynasty, you must win and win and win. Last I checked, the Cubs aren’t the “27” Yankees or the “76” Big Red Machine of Cincinnati.  You’re the loveable losers, torn down, rebuilt and you have tasted the sweetest of success.… Read the rest

Lesson Learned

Posted in Bill's Blog
Years ago, I watched Sergio Garcia and saw a smug, cocky, somewhat arrogant young man who seemed to be a whiner because he should have been a major champion numerous times over if it weren’t for a guy by the name of Tiger Woods. Over the years, he’s made snide comments that have gotten him into hot water with the American public golf fan and was never really accepted as one of those competitors you can root for. What I saw yesterday at Agusta was a golfer who has seemingly grown up….he’s become humbled by the chase for a major and appreciative of the greatness it takes to attain that stature.… Read the rest

Will The Bucks Fall Too Far

Posted in Bill's Blog
A week ago the Milwaukee Bucks were firmly entrenched in the 5th seed of the NBA’s Eastern Conference.  Things were looking good, the team was playing well and seemed to be firing on all cylinders. Since then, Malcom Brogden’s back has been acting up and Kris Middleton’s shot can’t be found even on your local milk carton. This lack of productivity has allowed the bucks to drop into a 3 game losing streak with lackluster performances to Dallas, a national cringe to the OKC Thunder and now to the scrappy Pacers. As it stands, Milwaukee is 2 games away from either the 5th seed or not making the postseason at all.… Read the rest
