THE TRUE VILLAINY OF KING JAMES: HOW I RESPECT THE MAN, BUT WILL (PROBABLY) ALWAYS ROOT AGAINST THE MAN
I’ve often argued that every person’s views on sports, college and professional sports teams, and rooting interests stems from a period of formative years in their childhood. It’s the time when you started watching SportsCenter every day (for me, it was the golden age of Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann pre-MSNBC liberal crusader), watching every championship game/series, reading the sports section each morning (before the transition to around-the-clock internet coverage), and deciding who the heroes and villains were and who you’d root for above everyone else.
This post comes from Lakeland, FL native Jeremy Wilson. Jeremy wrote our first ever guest post entitled, The Curious Case of Jeremy (Lin). He is now joining us to blaze another trail and to help spark a debate. This is our first “letter to the editor”, in which he is responding to Colin’s post yesterday on why the NBA Playoffs are better than March Madness. He originally started writing it as a comment and then it kept getting longer and longer and was submitted as a guest post. Feel free to weigh in on the debate in the comment section below! Read more
The NBA playoffs are better than March Madness. Try and debate me. If you have a team of interest in the NBA, then the NBA Playoffs are so much better than the few weeks of March Madness. If you are a basketball fan the playoffs give you the best sample of competition possible. Allow me to rebuttal the anticipated arguments. After deconstructing those oppositions, I will then present the reasons for you to agree with my opening statements. Read more
“If right now I had to stake my life on one team making the NBA Finals it would be the Memphis Grizzlies.” -Bill Simmons
As some of you know, I work in the non-profit world. For non-profit organizations to survive it is essential to have a solid case for support together to share with prospective donors. Every charity organization is trying to do good in an area of need and they are all competing for the same dollars from prospective donors. A solid case for support is something that can really set you apart. It’s something that leads donors to believe that their money is going to have the greatest impact with you.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I present to you the Memphis Grizzlies case for support. This is designed to persuade citizens of cities outside of Memphis (i.e. Nashville) to hop on board with the Grizzlies. So if you’re tired of pretending like you care about hockey and want some real excitement in your life, I’ve got you covered. Read more
Here’s a fun and easy transition for my night. I spent hours studying for and insurance test, then wrote a blog post about Tony Allen. That transition went about as well as this clever pun not inserted here, which was intended to be, but my brain hasn’t allowed the funny part to be turned on just yet. Yes, I know several of my readers have already clicked away by now. But for those of you still here, I thank you. We will get there, have faith in me and my abilities to draw you in more and more. See, it’s working isn’t it. Read more
And so it began. Yesterday I made several attempts to get my buddy Tony Allen to retweet something I sent him. He is always RT’ing, so I figured I would make a conscious effort to get TA to approve a 140 character or less configuration.
I would like to apologize to those whose Twitter feeds I overwhelmed. Don’t judge my desperation as the night came to a close. Now to share with you my feeble attempts to get @aa000g9 to give me my 12 seconds of fame, since @Scootereater didn’t seem too impressed with our blog or website or blog or is it a website? Am I getting paid for this? Bazinga. Full circle. Read more
