NBA 2013 Regular Season Awards

hi-res-6944918_crop_exact

With the 2013 NBA season winding down, I’ve decided to give out my regular season awards and nominations. This year was pretty standard as far as NBA seasons go. Like every year, you had your great teams, your bad teams… and your Charlotte Bobcats. You had your good players, your scrubs… and Luke Walton.

But why only give awards to the “best” players? Why not give players awards for being a scrub, having stupid hair or acting like a knuckle-head? That is exactly what this article will set out to do. Disagree with me? Think I’m an idiot? Comment below to state your case.

2013 NFL Draft: Unnecesary Mock Draft #12,402,387 Ver. 1.4

With the recent departure from Carson Palmer as their starter it’s obvious the Raiders are ready to go in a different direction, and I highly doubt it is with All-Time OSU outcast and college flop Terrelle Pryor. By trading Carson Palmer to Arizona, Kevin Kolb getting a ludicrous amount of money from Buffalo (They get rid of Ryan Fitzpatrick so they could sign KEVIN KOLB!? REALLY?) and the Raiders getting Flynn from Seattle, it sets up a scenario that could see the first QB drafted out of the top 10 for the first time since 2000 when Chad Pennington was selected 18th.

Actually looking at the board as it stands now, if Geno Smith falls out of the top 10 I’m not sure where he lands. The last time the first round came and went without a QB selected was 1996, the year that saw infamous busts like Tim Biakabatuba, Cedric Jones, Jermaine Stephens and Lawrence Phillips. Without Ray Lewis, Johnathan Ogden and Marvin Harrison 1996 is arguably the worst 1st round draft class in NFL history.

America’s Pastime: The Debate

The Daily Sports Obsession

America’s pastime. It’s an honor baseball has claimed throughout its’ history. From Cy Young to Verlander, Cool Papa Bell to Mike Trout, it cannot be debated that baseball is a piece of Americana. However, the game of football has become the most-watched sport in the United States by far. Fans are now arguing that the game of football is, in fact, the real “America’s Pastime.” This debate has been raging for years and it’s time for our great nation to come to a verdict. Let’s break it down: which sport should it be?

Football

Reasons for football as America’s pastime: Die-hard football fans will argue that football is the red-blooded, weekend spectacle that should be considered our nation’s pastime over the game of baseball. One of the main reasons is TV. 19.3 million viewers tuned in during the regular season this year, and despite the blackout nonsense that brought the Ravens-49ers Super Bowl to…
