Jerry Jones Now Wishes Johnny Manziel Was A Dallas Cowboy

You know this has to be killing Jerry Jones that he did not get to draft Johnny Manziel. Jerry Jones is a riverboat gambler and usually he gambles, but this time around people around him would not let him gamble. Was it a wise decision not to draft Manziel? That really is a hard question to answer these days because you really never know for a few years.

Jones was in a tough position as he has Tony Romo and bringing in Manziel would have just caused friction. The team made the right decision, but if Manziel does real well Jones will be kicking himself for a very long time to come. In the NFL you never know how things will work out. One time you can find a gem and sometimes you will not. The verdict is still out on Johnny Manziel.

Will The Cavaliers Become The Darth Vader Of The NBA This Year?

Now that Lebron James has made his return to Cleveland are the Cavaliers becoming the Darth Vader of the NBA. When James went to Miami he was hated for surrounding himself with good players and spurning the Cleveland Cavaliers. Will the same scenario play out in Cleveland? It very could and here is why.

Yes, James is loved in Cleveland, but around the league I cannot imagine this will sit well. Players just joining the Cavaliers because they think they can win a championship. This just fuels resentment from other teams, fans, and the public in general. Remember when Lebron was going to win not 4, not 5, not 6 okay we know the story Lebron.

Cleveland is slowly becoming the Darth Vader of the NBA. Being hated isn't always a bad thing if you win. The Oakland Raiders are a prime example, but they have not won in a long time. Ask their fans how enjoyable it is to lose season after season. If James wins another championship it will be interesting to see how he is perceived. Will he be loved or marked as Darth Vader forever.

Can Dwayne Wade Get Back To MVP Form?

Okay most people are probably thinking what in the hell are you thinking. Durant, Bryant, James Westbrook and Dirk are a few of the names that come to mind before Dwayne Wade.  Why do I think Wade will be MVP it's actually pretty simple. Let's look at why I think this could very well be one of Wade's best seasons ever.

The last few years Dwayne Wade has taken a backseat to let his teammates come to the forefront. This does not mean Wade did not want to it was him being a team player. Yes, he has been injured, but he should be pretty healthy going into this season. Wade also will have a chip on his shoulder. Most people think that Lebron James was the only reason the Heat won their championships.

Dwayne Wade has something to prove and this coming season I expect him to be a standout. With James gone he can be the man once again. Look for Dwayne Wade to have a MVP season. If he does the Heat could head back to the NBA Finals.

What Has Happened To Baseball?

Baseball for so many years was labeled America's pastime, but I fear that may not be the case anymore. Growing up I remember going to the ballpark every week enjoying the game with my family. There was specials all the time, so it was very affordable, but that is not the case anymore. I played little league growing up and one day I wanted to be just like my idols. It never happened, but hey kids are allowed to dream.

The baseball I see today do not even look like the sport I loved growing up as a kid. We have steroids, cheating and all kinds of things going on. It's not about the fans anymore it's all about money and that is sad. There was a time where kids could go to the ballpark and eat hotdogs with their families and try to get a foul ball in their glove along with some autographs.

Where has real baseball gone? Soccer, football, and basketball have taken over for baseball it seems. Little league is getting less players and leagues are vanishing quickly. I fear the sport I love is dying a slow death and my grandson will miss out on all the fun baseball was for me growing up. Hopefully, people will see what the game has become and give it back to the fans. I know that will not happen, but I can dream just like I did about being in the Major Leagues.
