RF23 - Sports In Review....

RF23 - Sports In Review...


Well the fanzster has recovered from the devastating loss of his Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs and ready to talk sports. You know it's losses like that that could have a person crying and rolled in the bed for days at a time....Enough about T.O., lets talk sports..

AFC Championship Game: I thought that the L and the T that charger fans yelled out along with MVP, was for his name, LaDainian Tomlinson. Little did I know it meant, "Little Tantrum." This season, I saw something from Little Tantrum that I didn't enjoy seeing. On three occassions, well if you want to talk about last year, five occassions, I seen this guy gripe and pout on the sidelines and last year, outright cry about the behavior of the New England Pay err!! Patriots, when they got punked in the playoffs last year. I let last years tantrum go, because, well, I never saw that before in him. But this year, oh boy I seen it in living charger color...

But this is not why I'm talking about LT. One of the people who received Little Tantrum's tirades was his quarterback, Phillip Rivers. Rivers, suffered a knee injury in the last game of the season and Tantrum got hurt last week playing against Indianapolis. Rivers, had surgery on his sticks and Tantrum was said to have a pull. Rivers played on Sunday, Tantrum tried to go and sat the rest of the game. And afterward, Tantrum was quoted as saying, that healthy back ups, Darren Sproles and Marcus Turner, was better than 50% him....Problem!

Little Tantrum, you are a former MVP and a 50% you, is better than any healthy combination of Sproles and Turner. You could have been a decoy and oh yeah! how many touch down passes did you throw from 20 yards in to the end zone. You could still make plays. It was potentially the last game of the season and there you are sitting on the bench with your helmet on, hiding your face. Get it together Little Tantrum...

Props to New England....

NFC Championship: Enough of Brett Favre, already and memo to Favre...quit. Don't get fooled by the hype, you had a good season, but when your team needed you in big games...you choked. You couldn't come through against the Cowboys and you couldn't come through against the Giants. Take your one super bowl win and loss and stay in Misssissippi. Good memories and like Steve Young, you'll be a great player, that is in the Hall of Fame.

Memo to FOX, quit showing Archie Manning! I don't want to see Archie Manning, short of seeing highlights of him getting his ass handed to him by every defensive player not wearing a Saints uniform. Look! I get he has two boys playing in the league and if you had to line them up, you'll take his boys at age 9 over him..But enough already, Archie isn't playing in the Super Bowl and he didn't play last year. I mean damn, they was showing Archie and family when the kicker, who is not his son, finally made the game clinching field goal. What about his parents? There was drama right there, a kicker who missed three field goals during the game and finally nails a forty seven yarder in the frozen tundra. And additional memo to Giants coach Tom Coughlin, believe the weather man when they say the temparatures are 15 below zero! with a wind chill factor of -47. Dude, you were turning into a Washington red apple right before I eyes. Mix in more clothes!

Props to the Giants...

(local) NCAAF: Well if you can't beat 'em, hire 'em. The UCLA Football Bruins hired recently fired Norm Chow as their offensive coordinator. Question to the Football Bruins, is there anything else you need from USC?

(local) NCAAB: Meanwhile, as the Football Bruins were in the sloppy seconds and thirds aisle in the super SC market....The Basketball Bruins were getting fed a good portion of bad Mayo, as the SC basketball Trojans beat the highly ranked Basketball Bruins. Look, I usually don't talk basketball, especially college basketball until March. Apparently that's when the season begins and ends...one moment in time....Props to the basketball Trojans..

(national) Boxing: Roy Jones, Jr. defeated Felix Trinidad in a fight that was 5 to 8 years too late. HBO will rerun the fight this Saturday.

(local) NBA: The lakers are playing good basketball, at one point in first place, before losing to the Suns on Friday. They will be on the road and this time without Andrew Bynum...Quick note about Bynum, I never thought this guy would respond this quickly to his critics and show why he has the potential to be named as one of the best presently playing. The kid put in work and it's showing and the Lakers need this guy. About this time last year, he was a non factor...folks, he's a factor now...

(national) NBA: It looks like the writing is on the wall for Shaq. He is about to have his first back to back less than fifty games streak be a memory. The Heat are atrocious! The Clippers, well they're the Clippers. Boston is still rolling, but needs to find a way to get past the Wizards aka The Bullets. Detroit is still a threat, but not a easy favorite. Lebron James needs some help and quick and can someone tell me what happened to Larry Hughes...this guy has disappeared and yet we see him on the court...

The suns look vulnerable and the Mavericks are either pacing themselves or the clock has run out on them. Meanwhile the Spurs are just rolling along...

(national) Golf: Phil Mickelson is going to miss this weeks tournament, due to healt ailment. Not a good start for Lefty, but I think he'll represent. Tiger is Tiger, and let me say this, although the events in the San Francisco Zoo was tragic, this should serve notice to golfers who compete with Woods...Don't ef! with Tiger!

Tennis (Australian Open): The Williams sisters were put out and Maria Sharapova dumped Justine Henin. On the men's side, Fedorer, Nadel and James Blake are still alive. Roddick was last seen in Huntington Beach, CA.

NHL: Sidney Crosby is out from an injury and will miss the all star game...He suffered a high ankle sprain during a game last week. And props to Tim for schooling me on the terms "hat trick" and why squid is thrown on the ice floor.

MLB (St. Louis Cardinals) Albert Pujos has banned a local St. Louis radio station from his news conference, due to some report that he was on the "Mitchell Report." Albert just because your name wasn't allegedly on the list does not mean, you haven't used roids or HGH. Sorry, it's the era in which you play.
