Thoughts on the Memphis Tigers New Court Design

Posted on by Garrett Hall in Basketball, Featured, Guest Spots, Sports | Leave a comment

Memphis Basketball Court

Today Memphis Basketball announced that the court will have a new design for next year.  No, not a simple new paint job, they are going all out with placing the Memphis Skyline on the court.

For college teams, this trend was started a couple years ago when Oregon announced that they were going to have a new court design.  Everyone was excited to see what they would come up with, because heck it is Oregon and who doesn’t love what they put out.  Well lets just say their court design went over just as good as the silver reflective helmets that they tried to wear.  In my opinion it was a total fail.

USP NHL: STANLEY CUP FINAL-CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS AT B S HKN USA MA

Hockey, you sneaky devil. You timed it so well. You waited for the perfect Monday night—the NBA Finals are over, the most boring Bachelorette of all time is on, and you put me in the city of the new champions, the Chicago Blackhawks.

When I moved to Chicago, I took any chance I could to take subtle (or not so subtle) jabs at hockey, its fans, and its players. Now, three months later, I find myself writing a post about it, with fireworks continually shooting off on the streets outside, and with my heart still racing from that unbelievable finish in game 6. [Check out the highlights below. Chicago was 90 seconds away from losing and going to a Game 7 to determine the Champs when the unbelievable happened.]

The 2012-2013 Memphis Grizzlies: A Reflection

Grizzlies

If you’re anything like me, you cringed as the Grizzlies’ 2012-2013 season came to an abrupt close, thanks to the marvelous and annoyingly efficient play of the San Antonio Spurs. Sure, every team’s season ends, but why ours? Why this way? Why, after all the talk of how Tony Allen would shut down LeBron James and how Big Spain and Z-Bo would maul Chris Bosh, did our season have to end in such a rude fashion? Read more
