When Will The NHL Get It?

Can NHL Hockey ever capture what they provide in the Olympics? The truth is everyone loves Olympic Hockey. Just check out how many millions follow it should tell you how popular Olympic Hockey has become. There are many reasons this has not transferred to the NHL. One of the main reasons no matter how many fans like it is the fighting. Olympic Hockey does not have it and that is why it is so popular. Fighting takes away from the game no matter what people ma think. It interrupts the action and makes it harder for people to follow or care about NHL Hockey. Until they eliminate most of the fighting the NHL will never be as popular as they can be. That's a shame as it really is a great sport to watch and enjoy.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Grabs Another Daytona 500 Win

Dale Earnhardt Jr knows how tough it is to win the Daytona 500 as he has been close before, but Sunday was Dale Jr's day as he took the checkered flag to grab the win in the rain delayed race. Denny Hamlin finished second in The Great American Race. Junior now can work on rest of the season. It would be nice to see Junior win a championship and get the monkey off his back.

Why Do We Hate King James So Much?

It seems no matter what King James does on the court he always has his detractors on and off the court. Why is it we hate Lebron James so much? There are many reasons that come to mind. The Decision did not sit well and that is part of it. The other part is people are just trying to find fault in everything he does. James has made some quotes that probably he should have kept to himself.

James does so much on and off the court many people overlook his greatness. Before he even turned 18 everyone had him being the next Michael Jordan. He was called the chosen one and on almost every sports cover imaginable. Along the way he made some mistakes, but that is no reason to hate him like people do.There comes time when you must bury the hatchet and give him credit for what he has accomplished.



For Lebron James he wants to be the best ever and there is nothing wrong with that. If more people would support him like they did Jordan we could see something real special. Jordan had people from every walk of life supporting him. Hopefully people will warm up to James and stop hating a guy who just wants to be the best.

Team Canada Supreme In Hockey With Another Gold Medal Win

No matter what anyone tells you Team Canada is the best in the world. They have proved it without a doubt in the last two Olympic Winter Games. Canada beat Sweden by a score of 3-0 to take the gold medal. Many teams felt they had closed the gap on Team Canada, but that was not the case at all.



 Give Team Canada credit as they had a bullseye on their chest, but rose above it to bring home another gold medal. Other teams thought they had a chance, but when it was said and done it was Team Canada's defense in the end the difference.

Finland Dominate TEAM USA To Grab Bronze In Hockey

Team USA Hockey laid down again when they had a chance to at least medal. Finland dominated Team USA on way to an easy 5-0 victory and the Bronze medal. Team USA hockey needs to rethink how they do things or they will find the same results. I don't know if it's the coaching or the players we choose, but changes must be made before the next Olympics.



We as fans expect more from Team USA Hockey then an exit without any medals. I think after losing to Canada Team USA just did not care. You cannot play like that. You must have pride in yourself and come out and play well. Team USA wanted to get revenge against Canada from the last Olympics, but now they have to be sitting wondering what went so wrong for them.

Kevin Durant Or Lebron James Who Is Frontrunner For NBA MVP

The NBA MVP race in my opinion is a dead heat. Many people have Kevin Durant ahead of Lebron James, but just as many have King James in the lead. Both players are having great seasons, but I think it could come down to how they both perform down the stretch. Most voters always look at how you finish not how you start. Another thing that must be considered is Kevin Durant has not one MVP yet either. Many times voters give a guy who has not won one the benefit of the doubt.



No matter who wins this battle the real winner our the fans. They get to watch to of the best basketball players on the planet. In the end I see Lebron James winning again. If Russell Westbrook did not come back Durant probably would will as he would need to do more for his team. No matter who wins this is a race that should be good.

Richard Petty vs Danica Patrick And The Winner Is?

Well it seem that Tony Stewart had a good idea having Danica Patrick race Richard Petty to shut him up. If Tony Stewart thought The King would back down apparently he does not know him very well. Richard Petty said bring it on. Now Richard Petty is 76 years old and has not driven a race car in 25 years, but he is not back tracking you have to respect him for that.



Now the only thing left is where they will have the race and what day. It will be interesting to see if it actually takes place. Now if I was betting on the race I'm not betting against The King. There was a reason he won 200 Nascar races during his career.Danica is a lot younger, but Richard Petty is never one to back away from a challenge. This one should be very interesting to watch.

Team USA Hockey Disappoints In Olympics Again

Once again Team USA Hockey disappoints in the Olympics with another loss to Team Canada this time by a score of 1-0. Jamie Benn scored for Team Canada in the second period. Yes, both teàms played hard, but I expected more from Team USA. It seems we just cannot get over the hump when it comes to playing Canada. Give Canada credit they came to play and won a hard fought game.


It makes you wonder if we will ever beat Team Canada again. I guess Team USA will need to go back to the drawing board. Losing is never acceptable and we need to do better in hockey. Hopefully, in the future we can bring home gold, but for now we just cannot beat Team Canada.

Will Johnny Manziel Find The Same Fate As Tim Tebow In The End?

Johnny Manziel was the talk of college football for the last couple years, but is he worthy of a high draft pick. Will he become another Tim Tebow eventually, or does he have what it takes for a long pro football career? First I do not think he will be another Tim Tebow. He is able to make all kinds of throws which Tebow has struggled to do. Manziel has a football attitude which includes doing whatever it takes to won football games.



Is drafting Manziel a good idea for some NFL teams? It is on one condition. If you want to draft Johnny Football you must have the proper talent around him. Secondly, you must run an offensive system that will utilize his talents. If you just draft him and think you are going to win it will not happen. The right fit is very important if Johnny Manziel is going to be successful. Every team should precede with caution unless they have everything in place to let Johnny Manziel do his thing. That thing is to win ballgames, but he cannot do it alone.

Team USA Hockey Tops Czechs 5-1 Reach Semi-finals Rematch With Canada Next

Team USA made it look easy again this time against the Czechs as they came away with an easy 5-1 win. The USA have been on a hot streak and head to the semi-finals where they will play Team Canada the team that gave the United States a loss early in the Olympics. This game should be an instant classic as it seems all USA-Canada hockey games are always close.



The winner of this contest will head to the Gold Medal game. Team Canada has struggled a little bit in the Olympics on hockey which really is a big surprise. If you love Olympic hockey will not get better them Team USA vs Team Canada in hockey. Canada takes hockey very seriously, so this should be a wild one. If you love hockey you do not want to miss this one.

Road Warriors What A Rush

What A Rush is a catch phrase that was used by the Road Warriors during there wrestling career and even though they no longer wrestle they will never be forgotten. When you talk about tag teams the Road Warriors have to be put at the top of the list. The first time I seen them wrestle you knew they were something special. No matter what wrestling federation they were in they won tag team gold. No other tag team can claim that feat. Knowledge as Hawk and Animal they had a loyal following.
If you ask anyone that wrestled them they will tell you they were non-stop in your face guys. They were great on the mic and Manager Paul Ellering was the straw that stirred up The Road Warriors. He knew exactly what to do and say to keep them on top. Without Paul Ellering they may not have been so successful. They will easily go down as the greatest of all-time. Hawk died before they ended there run which was kinda of sad. It would have been nice to see them end it the right way. No matter what no one will match what they accomplished.

Frank Howard Our Player Of The Day

Frank Howard Is our throwback player of the day. Howard was a huge man at 6' 8" and 275lbs. He excelled in basketball and baseball at Ohio State. he probably could have been a very good basketball star, but decided on baseball as his chosen career. Frank Howard had some colorful nicknames such as Hondo and The Capital Punisher to name a few. During his career he hit 382 home runs and had over 1,000 RBI's. He was Rookie of the year in 1960 and a four time all-star.



The one thing most people remember about Frank Howard besides his side was his monstrous home runs he use to hit. Frank Howard was a player that  played hard and always gave it his all. If Frank Howard would have played a little longer his numbers could have been even higher. No matter what Frank Howard is one of the good ones and our player of the day. In his spare time he raises money for St. Jude Hospital.

Is Tony Romo Still The Answer In Dallas?

Tony Romo has had a roller coaster career in Dallas and since he started his career there always have been rumblings he is not the guy to lead the Dallas Cowboys to another Super Bowl. With another season in the books should Dallas rethink the direction they are headed. Moving up in the draft is an option, and grabbing a  quarterback is not out of the relam for Jerry Jones.



The truth is Tony Romo is a good quarterback and is paid well to lead the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones believes in him and it looks like he is going to ride this horse for awhile. Cowboys fans are tired of seeing no results though and that is never a good thing. Jerry Jones needs to surround Romo with not so much better players, but ones that play more consistent.

There will be times the offense plays great and other times in the game they cannot even get a first down. Dez Bryant is a talented guy, but he is only one guy. The Cowboys need more play makers if Romo is going to be more successful. Maybe Jerry Jones will grab some play makers in the draft for Romo, but I doubt it he does not draft real well it seems.

Oscar Robertson One Who Never Seems To Get The Respect He Deserves

There is one player that always seems to get lost when we talk about  the greatest basketball players of all-time and that is Oscar Robertson. He was a player that accomplished many things during his playing career. Only player ever to average a triple double for a season. Many people do not realize how tough that is to do. He was a multiple time all-star and a league MVP. He could do everything on the court.



Today's players are more flashy then Oscar Robertson, but would be hard pressed to put up the numbers he put up on a consistent basis. He was ahead of his time, but his game would work in any era. I wish more of the modern day players would acknowledge what he did for the game

Is This Kobe Bryant's Last Stand?

In the last few years we have not seen the Kobe Bryant we have come to grow and love. Injuries of course had a lot to do with that. Right now Bryant is nursing an injury and missed an All-Star game that he wanted to play in badly because he was voted in  by the fans. An honor he really takes pride in alot. How much does Kobe have left in the tank?



I really think Kobe is on the downswing in his career, but that does not mean he cannot put up some impressive numbers. We could be seeing Kobe's last stand, but you never know about him. Just when you want to count him out he shocks you with his play. I  would not be surprised to see Kobe come back in 2015 and make a deep playoff run with the Lakers as he is that kind of player. He will go down as one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Kyrie Irving Grabs All-Star MVP Trophy As East Wins

The East had lost a few All-Star games in a row, but that end last night as Kyrie Irving scored 31 points and dished out 14 assists on his way to game MVP. This help Cleveland fans who lost another MVP in Lebron James a few years ago. The east won the game by a score of 163-155. It was your normal All-Star games full of dunks and great plays. Lebron Jas, Kevin Durant, and Blake Griffin all had great games, but it was Kyrie Irving's night to shine.

Austin Dillion Puts The No.3 Back On Pole At Daytona

You probably could not right a better start to the season for RCR Racing. Richard Childress decided to bring back the No.3 having his grandson Austin Dillion drive it and right now it looks like a great move. Dillion took the pole in the Daytona 500 with a run at 196.019 mph. Greg Biffle will start beside Dillion in a Ford which surprised a lot of people.



I will have to admit that I never seen this coming. Yes, Austin Dillion is a good race car driver, but I was surprised that he got the pole. This will just give more excitement to the Daytona 500. This could be one of the best ways to start the season. A win would top it off for Austin Dillion, but right now I bet he is happy with his results so far.

Does Carmelo Anthony Really Want To Stay In New York?/

Carmelo Anthony will have a tough decision to make soon and that is if he wants to stay with the Knicks or move on. Many people have many views on this as the truth is you really never know what a player will do until it happens. Anthony has said he would take less pay and wanted to retire as a New York Knick. By taking less money the Knicks could entertain more free agents, but that's if anyone wants to come to New York. Mike Woodson is the coach, but many feel he will not be there much longer. I like to think that he will be there long-term, but I just do not see it.



As far as Carmelo Anthony goes I think he loves playing in New York and for the Knicks. If he stays with the Knicks he is their best recruiting tool to get more players in New York. Anthony is one of the best players in the league and he does have some influence on today's players. It will be interesting to see if he can lure any free agents to New York. The Knicks are not playing well, but in reality they are really not that far away.

Lebron James Should Never End A Dunk Contest

Over the years many people have wanted King James to enter the slam dunk contest. There are a long list of reasons why he hasn't and many are valid points. I do have my theory on why it would be a waste of time for King James to enter. First and foremost he could probably win it pretty easy and then he would have to listen to the competition level was not that good. If he lost he would hear people say they knew he was not that good of a dunker. Lastly, it will not change people's opinion of him.



 LeBron James would be better off just to continue to skip the dunk contest. Like he has said before he is better as an in-game dunker then a contestant. No matter how much the fans would love to see him enter the reality is it will never happen. Enjoy King James on the court as that is the only time you will see him dunk.

Team USA Hockey Gets Dramatic Win Over Russia In Eight Round Shootout 3-2

It should not come as a surprise that Russia and the United States battled each other right down to the wire. These two hockey teams are talented and fans would expect no less. What maybe surprising is the way it end on T.J. Oshie shootout goal in the eighth round. Now this was a game that in retrospect the United States really needed. They could not afford a loss this early if they had dreams of Gold in this Olympic.



 The game had everything you want from great skating to awesome goal tending. It is a shame there had to be a loser in this one. Russia is talented and kept coming at the United States. The eight round shootout is something I would have never guess was possible, but it happened in these Olympics. I hope TEAM USA can keep up the good work.

2014 Baseball Season Should Be A Good One

Spring training is gearing up which means baseball season will be here very shortly. Last season we seen many different things including the Pittsburgh Pirates finally returning to the playoffs. What will 2014 hold for Major League Baseball? I think 2014 could be one of the best seasons ever.

Can the Boston Red Sox repeat and how good will the New York Yankees be as well. These are just a few of the things that we will have our eye on this upcoming baseball season. Derek Jeter retiring is another thing that will also be closely watch as well. Looks like no A-Rod this season either which maybe is a good thing. Many off-season moves were made by teams, so we will have to wait and see how that plays out. All in all should be a great 2014 Baseball campaign.

In A Way Richard Petty Is Correct About Danica Patrick

No matter how much I do not want to admit it The King Richard Petty has some valid points in his statements about Danica Patrick. I think Danica Patrick could win a race one day, but certain things must happen. One she has to earn the respect of everyone in the garage area which will be tough. Many drivers do not respect what she is doing and will make it tougher on her. Can Danica drive a race car? Yes, she can but many times it takes more then being a good driver.

You have to be lucky sometimes and get help from other drivers at times. Right now Danica is not getting much help from anyone. Some of the comments that Petty made were not real popular, but until she wins consistently they are valid arguments. Many times talk like this fuels Danica to greater heights and this could as well. Only time will tell if this does just that.

Derek Jeter To Retire After 2014 Season He Will Be Missed

Now I will admit I do have mixed feelings about the 2014 campaign being Derek Jeter's last as a New York Yankee. Now I have never been a Yankees fan or even really a Derek Jeter fan. I must admit though he is one of the best that has played that position. Jeter during his career has made some amazing plays. My favorite is his flip at home plate which can be seen below. It was a awesome play.



Now that was not the only play he made during his great career. If I showed all the highlights I would be here forever. Jeter was a one of a kind player that only comes along once in awhile. I have a lot of respect for what he has done on and off the field. He has kept his nose clean and has always did the right things. Many players could learn from him. Derek Jeter will be missed by baseball and the average baseball fan.

What Is Going on With The Orlando Magic?

Many people are wondering what is wrong with the Orlando Magic, but the truth is nothing really. On the outside looking in many people wonder how they were able to beat Oklahoma City and Indiana back to back. The truth is even with the horrible record the Magic have they have always been a good home team.

Did it surprise me when Orlando beat these two teams? I will tell you it was a big shock to say the least. Can Orlando keep it up? I really hope so, but I am realistic and I think it was just luck. I hope I am wrong and the Magic continue to play well. Only time will tell if that actually happens.

Would The 49ers Made It A Closer Super Bowl Game?

Now that the Super Bowl is over we. An reflect on many different things.  Yes, the Seattle Seahawks are the best right now in the NFL and there is no doubt in that thinking at all. They dismantled the Broncos with ease. The real question is should we change the format in choosing the best in the NFL.

The San Francisco 49ers without a doubt are the second best team in the NFL. They also got a win against Seattle and maybe should have been playing for the championships. One thing they need to change is AFC vs NFC. Right now the two best teams in the NFL are in the NFC. Having Seattle play San Francisco in the Super Bowl would have been a much better game. Maybe the NFL should consider adopting this change.

Derrick Brooks Gets Into The Hall Of Fame

Out of all the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Derrick Brooks was one guy who never complained and did his job season after season. It's no wonder he made it on his first try on the ballot. Brooks combined great speed with the ability to make plays when it counted.

Brooks played on a great defense that won a Super Bowl and he was a big reason they won. Brooks will be remembered as a classy guy who put team first.  Off the field he was just as classy doing many good things in his community.  Derrick Brooks was a great choice for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.
