We in Kansas?
Damn, NASCAR is boring.
Kansas, Vegas, Texas, Charlotte, California, Atlanta.....the list goes on and on.....how many mile-and-a-half races does the sport need?
After a while, you just simply don't care.....watching NASCAR these days, you get the impression that you've already seen the race before.
The NASCAR suits better figure something out.....the sport needs a makeover.
Apparently, there was no plan B in case Dale, Jr. couldn't find Victory Lane. Actually, Junior has been pretty consistent in 2012, despite the lack of winning...but the sport needs to figure out what to do with their schedule and the tracks that are being used.
I'm bored to death with the races.
I feel the same way during the middle of the bowl season....so many games; so little excitement. Give me the juice....I need something to get fired up about. NASCAR has some serious issues to address.
As of this post, the Charlotte Bobcats have lost 20 straight games and are on pace to finish with the worst winning percentage in NBA history.
The final three games of the season include road trips to Washington and Orlando and a home finale against the NY Knicks.
What is ironic, is that the finale with the Knicks could determine the Bobcats' place in history, and the game is being televised nationally on TNT.
Maybe the suits at TNT realized that the game will be going up against the NFL Draft, and they figured, "what the hell?"
It will be the last chance for America to catch a glimpse of what basketball fans in Charlotte have known all season.....and that is that Michael Jordan has single-handedly surrounded himself with his buddies to make a mockery of the NBA game in Charlotte.
There's no other way to describe "7-56".....almost every night, the team gets destroyed by the 2nd-teamers of the clubs they play.
Last week, Boston didn't even fly down their top 3 stars.....they stayed home and rested.
The Bulls basically played a half and then let their scrubs destroy the Bobcats.
I remember the days of the Hornets, when the Charlotte was buzzing....no pun intended.....and it didn't matter who they were playing.
When you turn on a Bobcat game on TV or even take advantage of free tickets to watch them in person....the one thing that jumps out at you is the lack of energy in the building. Unfortunately, it starts with a lineup that would be the Kentucky Wildcats' bitch.
This team and franchise is an embarrassment to Charlotte and the NBA.....and it starts at the top.
Maybe the team can somehow win one this week, not to wear the label as the worst NBA team ever....but to be honest with you.....this team deserves it.
We all know how much ESPN loves their Boston Red Sox.
Maybe it is the proximity of Bristol to Fenway, but either way you can always count on non-stop coverage from the WorldWide Leader when the Red Sox play.....and when Boston hooks up with the Yankees, forget about it.
They act the same way the state of North Carolina acts when the Heels and Blue Devils tangle on the hardwood.
What happened to the Sox over the weekend was cruel and unusual punishment.
Its one thing to lose to your arch-rivals on the 100 year anniversary of Fenway.....it's another to blow a 9-0 lead while giving up 15 runs to close out another loss to the pin-stripers.
Poor old Bobby Valentine must be feeling the heat, and it's not even May.
Something tells me that Boston might contact ESPN and see if they can arrange a Francona-for-Valentine trade.
I'm joking of course, but it does make you wonder how long Bobby V. can last in Beantown, with the way his over-paid club is performing.
The NFL Draft is this week, and that means it's time for Mel Kiper to act the part of the football expert.
I love Kiper....not because of his picks....they're awful.
But I love him because he has found a niche and has everybody fooled.
He's brutal with his mock drafts....I lost count how many he has floating around out there, but I can assure you that he will tell you how on the money his insight and picks are in the Draft.
can still see him telling America that Jimmy Clausen was a Top 10
pick and the best QB on the planet.....and what an amazing steal it
was for Carolina to grab him in the 2nd round.
Clausen has as much chance of playing QB for the Panthers this season as my dog, Chester.
But if you aren't riveted to the tube watching the Bobcats on Thursday night, I suspect you'll be watching the NFL Draft.
By the way, if the Panthers don't pick a defensive lineman in the first round, then they have lost their minds....it's so obvious what they should do that Kiper can probably figure it out.
I love that guy....keep fooling them, Mel.
