Brewers Trade Zack Greinke To Angels For Prospects

Well it looks like the Milwaukee Brewers are giving up on this season with the move of pitcher Zack Greinke. The Brewers trade Greinke to the Angels for three minor league prospects. The three prospects are
rookie shortstop Jean Segura   and two Double-A pitchers. The three prospects were some of the better ones in the Angels organization. I do not like the trade for a few reasons as the Brewers should know by now pitching wins championships.


Milwaukee traded Greinke away and that is a shame as he is a very good pitcher. Finding pitchers like Greinke are rare these days, so when you get them you should hold on to them very tight. Yes, Milwaukee got some good prospects for them, but in reality nothing that will help them right away. It looks for the Brewers fans this could be another one of those lost seasons as they struggle to get back into the playoff race.

Joe Paterno Statue Removed By Penn State

Now for me this comes as a shock, but Penn State has removed the Joe Paterno statue from campus. This shows how much pressure that Penn State was under regarding the statue. They university has decided to leave his name on the library, but his statue will not longer be displayed. This also shows that they thought Joe Paterno should have done more than he did and it was dividing the university.

Removing the statue was probably best as it let's the university move on quicker. It is a shame it had to come to this, but Penn State had to do something as it was becoming a flaming point for the University. Hopefully, by removing the statue now the University, community, and students can look forward to the new school year. By leaving the name on the library it still gives Paterno credit for all he did do for the University. It's sad it ended this way, but there really was no choice.

Are The Miami Hurricanes In Trouble Again?

It seems the Miami Hurricanes college football program keeps making news for all the wrong reasons. Yahoo sports is reporting that the program could be in trouble again  for infractions in recruiting.The NCAA is looking into it and it will be interesting to see what will come of it. Current coach Al Golden has said that he has done nothing wrong and has followed all the rules.

It seems these new allegations surround Sean Allen former equipment manager who was former right hand man of Nevin Shapiro. Shapiro was the guy who caused all the troubles for Miami before Golden got the head coaching job. Let's hope for the Hurricanes sake that the allegations are unfounded. If not this program could get hit hard again and that is something they really do not need right now. Only time will tell what will happen, but right now it does not look real good for the Miami Hurricanes football program.

Dwight Howard Still Bulking At Signing Contract Extension With A New Team


It seems that the Dwight Howard saga just keeps dragging out and people around the NBA are getting tired of it. From fans to GM's Dwight Howard seems to be burining a lot of bridges. In the end, he may wish he did this another way. The path that Dwight Howard is going down is going to make him a bigger villian then Lebron James did it seems. Yes, James made a mistake in the way he did it, but it seems Dwight Howard has not learned anything from the James debacle.
The way James did it is different then Howard, but in the end Howard is not helping himself out by not being willing to sign an extension if he is traded. Dwight Howard is going to tet the free agent market, but he maybe surprised if he does not get the kind of money that he wants. It would not surprise me to see owners not offer him the max contract that he is hoping for. Other players have tried this before and it has not always worked out for them.
Hopefully, Dwight Howard knows what he is doing, but sometimes I wonder. He could be forced to sign with a team that is not very good now, but it's his choice. Getting traded to the Lakers or another contender gives him a chance to play with a good team. In the end, Dwight Howard might have limited choices in free agency. I guess only time will tell if he is making a good decision by not be willing to sign an extension if traded.

Should Joe Paterno's Statue Be Removed?

Joe Paterno's legacy has taken a real hit and now many people are calling for his statue to be removed. Should Penn State remove the statue? That is an interesting question on many different fronts. Many people will tell you no, but just as many will tell you yes it needs to go. It reminds many people of the guy who could have done more to stop the child abuse. That hurt goes deep in many people and it will not go away anytime soon. Of course we never got to hear Joe Paterno's side of the story, so all we can do is guess what he did or did not do.

Some people have the opposite opinion and they feel Joe Paterno's contribution should be applauded. He has done a lot for the University and taking it down would show disrespect for his accomplishments. In the end, this is a hard decision, but over time I think the statue will stay and not be removed. It pits two different opinions about the situation and if the trustees remove it someone will not be happy. Doing nothing is the best answer right now and do not look for that to change anytime soon.


Can Team USA Win Gold In London?

Team USA basketball are prepping for the Olympics and anything but Gold for them will be a bitter disappointment to them. It will be a nice challenge this Olympics for Team USA this year. Some of the players they were counting on could not come because of injuries. This does not mean that Team USA is not without talent as they have some of the best in the world. The interesting part is one of the most hated players in recent times Lebron James will hear cheers with every made basket.

In fact, I look for Lebron James to make this Olympics his own and carry Team USA. Over the last year James has learned a lot and matured after he left Cleveland. Now that he is a NBA Champion he seems poised to go to even greater heights. Kobe Bryant is another guy who could also make this Olympics special as it will be his last. He wants to go out on top and will not let Team USA fail in his last go around. This Olympics will be tough at times, but I see Team USA bringing home gold once again.

Joe Paterno's Legacy Is Gone After Freeh Report

Joe Paterno built a legacy at Penn State that I thought was second to none, but after that Freeh Report it is left to a pile of rumble. No matter what anyone thinks Joe Paterno knew or had some insight to what was going on and he did very little about it. It seems he was protecting his friend and that is very sad indeed. We will never hear joe Paterno's side and the truth is most people do not want to hear it anyways. There is no excuse for protecting a guy who was sexually abusing kids.

Paterno's legacy is gone and never will be back. He ruin it himself because he was not willing to do the right thing to his friend. Paterno should have been a stand-up guy and do the right thing, but he never did and that is a shame. In the end, Joe Paterno will be remembered for what he did not do in the sexual abuse case more then all the wins and good men he delivered from the university. It is a shame it ended this way, but he can only blame himself for what has happened to his legacy.

2012 Dream Team Or The Original Dream Team Who You Got

It seems Kobe Bryant is losing his memory or just does not realize what he is saying anymore these days. Bryant said he thought his 2012 edition of the Dream Team could take the original Dream Team who had a host full of Hall Of Famers. Now Kobe said the game would be close, but they thought they could pull it out. Now Kobe's statement makes great copy, but that's where it all ends Mr. Bryant.

The truth is no matter how great the 2012 Dream Team is they do not have a Michael Jordan or Larry Bird on the team. Kobe is older and Lebron is good, but comparing your team to the original is laughable at best. Jordan's Dream team would eat your lunch plain and simple. The original Dream Team had great size and it would not even be a close game in my opinion.

Yes, Kobe and company would keep it close for a half, but after that it would be a rout. I hate to tell Kobe that him and James would be shut down by the defense of the original Dream Team. It is good print Kobe, but rethink what your saying when you compare Dream teams.


Drew Brees And Saints Agree On Mammoth Contract

The New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees finally agreed on a contract. Brees was given a five-year 100 million dollar contract with 60 million of it guaranteed. I will admit that is a lot of money, but Brees has put up some amazing numbers as Saints quarterback. The New Orleans Saints really had no choice as they knew losing Brees was not an option with Sean Payton out as coach.

Drew Brees is one of the leaders on the New Orleans Saints and they needed him. He got what he wanted and the Saints have a quarterback that will continue to put up impressive numbers. Now the Saints are going into the season without their coach, but they have one of the better quarterbacks locked up for five more years. It will be interesting to see how well Brees does this year without his coach on the sideline. Will he earn his money or will he struggle? Only time will tell, but I have a feeling the Saints will be fine with Brees under center.

Baseball Cards Stash Found Could Be Worth Millions

Baseball cards are still popular today, but finding rare cards in an attic do not happen very often. Karl Kissner was looking around in his grandfathers attic and found a stash of old baseball cards that he could not believe. Names like Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, and Connie Mack were just a few of the 700 cards he found. The cards were hidden under a dollhouse in his grandfathers attic.

Now these cards are going to fetch anywhere between 500,000 to 3 million dollars for the family. His grandfather had them hidden away and are in good condition considering the age. The family should turn a nice profit once the lot is sold. Just goes to prove you never know what you can find in your grandfather's attic once you go through it. You may find a treasure just like Kissner did.

Steve Nash Makes Lakers Instant Contenders

The Los Angeles Lakers gave up some draft picks, but in getting Steve Nash they have added a vital piece to another Championship run. Nash is a point guard that the Lakers really have not had in a long time. He will take some of the pressure off of Kobe Bryant and that will help the Lakers out a lot. Nash and Kobe together should make a tough duo to deal with on a nightly basis. This trade has helped make the Los Angeles Lakers instant contenders for an NBA Championship.

Rumors have it that the Lakers are not done yet either in improving their team. I do not know what direction the Lakers will go next, but the Nash trade was huge for them. They will be a much improved team and Nash will help them where they need it the most point guard. It will be interesting to see how well Kobe and Nash work together. I do not see a problem as both players just want to win Championships.

Dwight Howard Making Demands Once Again No Real Surprise

Dwight Howard making demands should not come as a surprise to NBA fans anymore. It seems Mr. Howard will now only resign with the Brooklyn Nets when he becomes a free agent. Now if I was teams I would stay as far away from Howard as I could. He has proven to be a flip flopper and you cannot trust what comes out of his mouth. He thinks he is bigger then life and can dictate where he is going to play. If I was Orlando I would send him wherever I could get the best deal.

Mr. Howard has really become a disappoint to the NBA and himself in my opinion. He was at one time one of the most popular NBA players, but he is also losing his fan base. Lebron James was the most hated player at one time, but I'm starting to think Dwight Howard is inching up on that title now. Hopefully, the Orlando Magic will get smart and cut ties with Dwight Howard as soon as possible.

Joe Paterno May Have Known More Then First Thought

Joe Paterno said he did not know much about the Jerry Sandusky child abuse allegations, but it looks like he may have known a lot more. According to various sources and emails that has come to light, shows Joe Paterno had more knowledge about what was going on. If that is the case that will make a big impact on how Joe Paterno is remembered.

Most people have a high opinion of Joe Paterno, but if these new allegations are true his image will take a big hit. In the end, we probably will not know what the truth is as Joe Paterno has passed away and he cannot defend these new allegations. No matter what this could be a sad ending to the Jerry Sandusky abuse allegations for Joe Paterno supporters.
