It will change your life. Check out Aziz’s solo spot as well.
Get Ready for Coach Harbaugh and the Ravens to play in their first ever home playoff game under his tutelage. It will be Joe Flacco & Ray Rice’s first playoff game in M&T Bank Stadium as well.
Those familiar with the NBA will be aware of the fact that not too long ago, last years MVP Derrick Rose signed a 5-year contract extension with the Chicago Bulls worth nearly $95 million.
As if that wasn’t enough, it seems as if D-Rose is rapidly approaching another astronomical payday. Word has surfaced that the point guard is close to signing on the dotted line with current sponsor Adidas for a fresh endorsement deal. At first this may fairly run of the mill, but wait….
According to ESPN‘s Marc Stein, one of his sources reports that the two sides are very close to finalizing a deal worth $250 million. Yes that is correct, two-hundred and fifty million dollars. Thats a hefty sum of dough to rep some sneakers don’t you? Can’t knock the hustle though, dude is getting his.

Well as anticipated, Chris Paul landed in Los Angeles. Just not necessarily with the team everyone initially thought. Rumors have surfaced in recent hours claiming that the NBA’s most coveted castaway has finally found a landing spot next to Blake Griffin with the Clippers.
Now as I am sure you have heard, unless you live under a damn rock, that last week David Stern aka the Hornets owner by default, vetoed a trade that was set to send CP3 to the other occupier of the Staples Center. Instead, the revamped three-team deal includes Los Angeles, Minnesota, and the Hornets.
In what does not seem to be a substantially more beneficial deal, NOLA will receive Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu, a 2012 first-round draft pick (from Minn), as well as two future second-round picks.
Going to be interesting watching CP3 throw a few oops to Blake, thats for damn sure.
When news broke prior to this season that there would be a lockout of the NFL, people seriously freaked out. On the other hand, players, coaches, owners, and fans alike have been well aware of the fact that the NBA would be not far behind. After over 100 days of speculation and absolutely zero progress, the lockout has claimed the life of the inaugural two weeks of the regular season.
With weeks of fruitless negotiations and star players departing American to take their talents elsewhere in the basketball world, it seems as if we are witnessing the collapse of the empire that is the National Basketball Association. I mean let’s be real here. A few weeks ago, the head of the NBA Players Union, the foremost representative and advocate for the players rights, Lakers PG Derek Fisher, joined an “NBA Players Only” League based out of Las Vegas.
When the man leading the charge to reinstitute the season and work on restructuring some sort of new collective bargaining agreement leaves the league to play in a glorified D-League, you know all hope is lost.
I’m not saying that the NBA is going to be done for good, I’m just saying that there is a pretty fair shot that there will be no season whatsoever this year. Though there is still somewhat of a possibility the two sides could find a common ground in the coming weeks, it looks more and more unlikely each passing day.
In a day full of action-packed European qualifying matches, there was certainly no shortage on goals. With such world powerhouses as England, Portugal, Germany, and the Dutch all playing on the same match day, you are bound to get some overwhelming results
The most convincing and absolutely mind-blowing result of the day was the Netherlands route of San Marino. Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie netted four goals, while Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneijder both grabbed braces. The World Cup 2010 finalists kicked off their EURO 2014 qualifying campaign with a seriously powerful performance.
Wayne Rooney continued his run of excellent form both for the Three Lions and the Red Devils by leading the way and scoring two goals. In a drastically different Fabio Capello side where we saw Frank Lampard excluded in favor of Scott Parker and Gareth Barry, and United’s fledgling defensive starlet Chris Smalling started at right back. Gary Cahill had England’s third goal as they also won quite convincingly in their opening fixture.
My predicted winner of the 2014 World Cup, Germany, put on a magical performance led by surreal Real Madrid middy Mesut Ozil. The German #8 put on a dazzling show and came out of the match with a hat trick. Youngsters Mario Götze and Andre Schurrle also found the back of the net, further proving that the German youth system is far more superior than any other, aside from maybe the Spanish.
Speaking of Spain, they were brought to the wire by former rivals Chile, who went out to a commanding two to nil lead. The World Champions fought back valiantly late in the second half to wi nthe match. Super sup Andres Iniesta marked his second half entrance with a goal, as did Barcelona new-boy Cesc Fabregas, who in the 90th minute missed a game-winning penalty. Then proceeded to score a goal seconds later to win the game, thus leading to a scuffle that really put an ugly scar on an exhilarating match.
As all football fans know, the last day of August is always an important day in the calendar. It marks the end of the summer transfer window, and is usually we see a significant amount of big money players moving in the final minutes. This particular day is generally frantic and hectic for clubs, fans, and journalists alike, so here’s the up to the minute list of big player moves that have been made thus far on deadline day.
Dutch winger Eljero Elia signed with Juventus today from Bundesliga side Hamburg in a deal said to be worth about 9 million euros. The gifted midfielder is just the offensive weapon the Bianconeri needed to attempt to get back into Serie A‘s elite.
Real Madrid confirms the loan of Pedro Leon to fellow La Liga outfit Getafe on a one year spell.
Long time AC Milan fullback Massimo Oddo has completed a switch to Lecce.
Queens Park Rangers have acquired Manchester City want away Shaun Wright Phillips.
More up to the minute transfer news after the drop! Cheers.
Arsenal fans worldwide saw their team on the wrong side of an 8-2 romping at the hands of reigning champions Manchester United. Under-fire manager Arsene Wenger, and his substantially depleted starting XI, made up of a makeshift defensive unit and lacking in midfield creativity, were embarrassed at Old Trafford this past Sunday.
As you might imagine, the devoted, trophy-deprived supporters of one of England’s most prolific and historic football clubs are far from happy. So, in order to make an attempt to please them, the front office has offered the cost of a match ticket to nay future away Premier League match.
Personally, I do not see this as much compensation for the disgraceful, shambolic performance displayed by the Gunners this weekend. If you really want to please the fans in North London, go out and sign a few proven, youthful British-born players, the maybe you will see the support. But if Wenger does not start spending the Cesć and Nasri money they just raked in, they will be left high and dry in all competitions yet again, and their fans will remain unhappy.
In what has come to be yet another scintillating weekend of international football, there was no shortage of goals by any means.
Saturday’s headlines ran rampant with Didier Drogba’s horrifying head injury, when he was knocked unconscious by Norwich City’s keeper and immediately rushed to the hospital. In a game where Chelsea saw Spanish new boy Juan Mata find his first goal for the club, the packed ground at The Bridge was treated to a 3-1 win, with goals also coming from Frank Lampard and Jose Bosingwa.
Check out the rest of this weeks action on the next!
If you thought it was impossible for Lakers forward Ron Artest to do anything else that would be considered clinically insane by some professionals, you thought wrong.
The former NBA Defensive Player of the Year had his bid to change his name to Metta World Peace, denied by a judge. Yes, you read correctly, it is not a type. Ron Artest is attempting to change his name to Metta World Peacer.
Having begun the name-changing process this past June, Artest’s request has been postponed due to some outstanding traffic warrants. Hopefully Metta can get all this figured out soon…..
