Lebron James almost becomes the first unanimous MVP in NBA history.  Key word, almost.  1 voter votes Carmelo Anthony over Lebron.  Carmelo?  You have to be kidding me.  Not Durant, not Chris Paul, but Carmelo.  Lebron is the MVP, how someone can vote for anyone else is mind boggling.

Royce White talks trash to Kevin Durant via twitter.  White called the Thunder ‘shhaakkyyy’ after the Rockets win.  Durant responds by closing out Houston in 6 games.  I’m not sure we will ever see Royce White play in an NBA game.

derrick-rose1People need to settle down about Derrick Rose.  I understand people wanting him to play, I get it.  But if he says he isn’t ready, he isn’t ready.  Who knows Rose’s body best?  My guess is Derrick Rose.  If Rose doesn’t think he can play at the level he wants to play at, why on earth would you risk getting injured even worse?  Rose and the Bulls made the mistake of saying there’s a chance he could come back this year.  From day 1 they should have said his season was over, no chance of coming back.  Instead, they put false hope in the minds of fans and media.

The Iowa Cubs finally get to play.  After postponing 3 straight games the I-Cubs split a doubleheader with Oklahoma City.  The good news, the weather is turning for the better.  The bad news, leading hitter Ryan Sweeney is being promoted to Chicago.  That’s the life of a Triple A team.

Nate Kaeding retired from the NFL at the age of 31.  Kaeding had a solid career.  If a couple kicks in the postseason go a different way Kaeding may have played in a Super Bowl

One of my good high school friends got married Saturday night.  It’s always fun to catch up with old friends you haven’t seen in a while.  Time flies.  I remember some wild times in high school with my friends.  Can’t believe its been 13 years since I graduated high school.  As I get older and continue to attend weddings I also realize how much tougher it is to get up the next day.  Beers + shots + age = slower moving body.  Good times.  shot-of-rum-01
