It’s been quite the offseason for Maryland Basketball. After an up-and-down season, the Terps did not receive an invitation to any postseason tournaments, including the NIT. One could chalk it all up to the turmoil around Maryland’s move to the B1G (beginning on July 1), but it seems that the ACC/B1G drama is the least of the men’s basketball team’s worries.
This first weekend of the NCAA Tournament has probably been one of the most memorable to date. The tournament definitely lived up to its “mad” nickname. For the first time in many, many years I didn’t fill out a bracket. I wanted to have zero investments in this tournament and watch it like a normal person. That’s not to say that I don’t have rooting interests. Okay, it’s more like anti-rooting interests.
Ever since I first watched curling at the 2006 Olympics, I’ve wanted to try it. It looked easy enough for a non-athletic person such as myself. Boy was I wrong.
This past November my friend decided to have a curling party for his birthday. A group of us gathered at the National Capital Curling Center in Laurel for a fun night of curling, beer and birthday cake. We did some stretching (that we all laughed about), were given our “rubbers” (the covers for the bottom of your shoes) and off we went to the rink.
Listen up, Baltimore sports fans! The squabbling between baseball and football fans has been irking me for awhile. It all reminds me of "Mean Girls" and cattiness, in general.
The hating has got to stop! We should defend one another, not tear each other down. Hell, we shouldn’t even be divided. Preach it, Ms. Norbury!
Tim Tebow is a bust. Please understand this. I know people wanted him to beat the odds, but it’s not going to happen. Admit it, Mel Kiper was right about him being a tight end.
"When you watch him play, he's strong as a runner and he's great with the ball. He can be that third quarterback in a wildcat formation. He could be an H back or a tight end, like a Frank Wycheck does in the NFL. He gives you that third quarterback, that versatile all-around guy."
It’s been almost a year since I’ve written a post about hockey. I feel like I had a falling out with a best friend, and we’ve only just started to get back to normal. See, when the NHL lockout happened, I got a little pissed off. At first, I wasn’t sure who was pissing me off more: ownership or the players.
I’ll admit it; I’ve had a crush on Ryan Lochte for a few years now. What’s not to like? Athletic? Check. Hot? Check. Then he started doing a lot of media during the 2012 London Olympics. Brains? Not so much.
Current free agent and former Redskin Fred Davis is in a legal battle with a pimpette. Yes, you read that right, a PIMPETTE. Makini Chaka is a lady-about-town who hangs out with local athletes and celebrities and used to be close with Mr. Davis. That is until Chaka showed up to Fred Davis’ party with some Baltimore Ravens. Oh, now you know shit is about to go down.
The NFL Combine has officially come to a close in Indy. If you haven’t seen any of the coverage on NFL Network, this post will not enlighten you, but it will hopefully make you laugh. Here are some of the funnier moments and pictures coming out of Indianapolis.
