Murphy’s Law: Scattershot Thoughts

murphys_law_400

LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet.  It appears the Spurs are the best team.  It’s okay if both are true…

Horace Grant claims the 90s Bulls would beat the Heat.  Horace Grant is right…

Watching what the World Cup means to other countries makes me think we’re missing out, but we’re definitely joining the fun more every four years…

Wouldn’t Maria Sharapova conserve energy if she didn’t grunt like that for three straight hours?…

Jamie Pollard is smart to get ahead–way ahead–of the significant price hike coming soon to the Cyclones’ best fans…

The Triple Crown fascinates because it’s so hard.  Make it easier, and we won’t appreciate it as much…

Belmont Stakes

Do not play the Kings in pub shuffleboard.  Still can’t believe where that puck stopped in game 4…

If the Padres are drafting Johnny Manziel, MLB may want to shave a few rounds…

Nothing proves Donald Sterling is nuts more than the fact he’s not immediately trying to bank the ridiculously overpaid sum of $2 billion for the Clippers

Steve Good is right.  Hilton Coliseum needs to stop playing Jock Jamz.  Every arena does…

Vegas puts the ISU football over/under at 3 1/2.  Give me the over.  Rhoads is due another upset special.  Iowa is 8 1/2. Logic says under.  Schedule says over.  The schedule could not be more friendly.  Seriously, take another look…

It will seem odd not having the Cubs on WGN, but at some point, how many millions is it worth losing each year to have the Cubs keep losing each year?…

Harry Caray could drink…

New Bucs head coach Dave Allison is a fun interview.  Fans will love him, and he’ll bring winning back to Buccaneers Arena…

Jerry Seinfeld’s Mt. Rushmore of comedians: Carlin, Pryor, Cosby, Rickles.  Mine:  Pryor, Rock, Murphy, Kinnison…

First concert I ever saw was Steve Martin.  If you’re under 40, that won’t make any sense…

One of our neighbors can’t find their cat.  Somebody call Chad Greenway…

The Cleveland Gladiators just scored again…

The best amateur hockey player in North America, Sam Bennett, can’t do one pull-up.  If pull-ups become part of a power play, he’s in big trouble…

I hope Manny Ramirez makes it to Des Moines in time for the State Fair…

Lonnie Chisenhall had 3 home runs, 9 RBIs in one game.  This begs the question, who the heck is Lonnie Chisenhall?…

“Hooray for Ames” has gone quiet, but rest assured, you haven’t heard the last of it.  Hawkeye fans have it locked and loaded for emergencies…

The most chilling part of Rashad McCants account of quickly going from failing classes to honor roll at North Carolina is that Roy Williams may be telling the truth that he had no idea.  If that’s true, it’s because Williams didn’t want to know, for reasons just like this…

On the other end of the student-athlete spectrum, Harrison Barnes continues to impress.  He’s like a 22-year old CEO of the Harrison Barnes brand…

Warriors vs Nuggets is great for Des Moines.  I’ve already been asked for tickets.  By my kids…

Did Jeriann Ritter get a haircut?  I haven’t heard…

The Bubu Palo story just won’t end.  Someone did something awful, and we’ll never know for sure who it is, and two people will never be the same.  No happy endings here…

Amazon Prime keeps getting better, and Fire TV is fantastic…

MIchael Jordan’s trainer told, Tim Grover, told me the “Flu Game” was actually the “Food Poisoning Game”.  Grover says Jordan had no room service in his Salt Lake City hotel so he ordered pizza.  Five guys showed up to deliver it.  Jordan got sick…

Pete Carroll says he had no idea sanctions were coming USC’s way, and he wouldn’t have left for Seattle if he had known.  No one outside Seattle believes Pete Carroll…

A hot dog wrapper decided a NASCAR race?  That’s more fuel for the haters…

The NCAA apparently has competition in the profit machine hypocrisy arena: FIFA.  John Oliver mixes humor with facts to eviscerate soccer’s governing body.  It’s beautiful…

Thanks for stopping by.
