Mark Sanchez might not say it publicly but he isn’t likely too thrilled to be on the same team as Tim Tebow again. The pair were teammates with the Jets and even then Sanchez didn’t like the fact of Tebow being inserted into a game for a play or two and throwing off the offensive rhythm. With them once again being paired on the Eagles depth chart along with Sam Bradford there are obviously too many names for one job. Experts say obviously the job belongs to Bradford, but that Sanchez could push him to start as well. Nobody thinks Tebow was brought in to go after the starting job, but the way Sanchez tells it, he doesn’t expect Tebow to be around period.
Drake gets a lot of flack for always supporting front running teams or the star athlete of the moment, but he does have genuine love for his Raptors. Unfortunately or him however the Raptors are basically being run out of the Playoffs by the Wizards so he might not have much time left this season to cheer for them. With that in mind, Drizzy traveled to D.C. to watch the Raptors try and get back in the series. The moment he walked in the boo’s started but he handled it like a pro, taking a couple bows and enjoying it. It was all for not though as the Raptors lost again and now are down 3-0 in the best of seven series so it is pretty much a wrap at this point.
It is safe to say Greg Hardy’s first week in Dallas could have gone a little better. The polarizing defensive end was signed by the Cowboys during the offseason with the expectation he would face some type of suspension from the league for his domestic violence issues. The suspension was handed down earlier this week and it was for ten games, so things were already off to a bad start. Then during one of his first practice’s he got into a fight with teammate Davon Coleman, who called him a “woman beater”. Now on top of all that Hardy also had to literally leave his black Bentley on a road in Dallas after it was surrounded by flood waters.
The biggest story of the NFL offseason for a while was the question of does a tape of Dez Bryant doing something despicable on camera really exist? It seemed the Cowboys were about to get the shock of a lifetime and the league as well. At one point people were on edge as footage was expected to be released any day, but then that day came & went. In the age of social media stories can snowball out of control without any real proof things are true and this, for now at least appears to be something like that.
A lot of you might think you are talking placing real money on the biggest fight in history May 2nd, but most people can’t even understand this level of money talk. Diddy and Mark Wahlberg made a wager of $250,000 on the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. Diddy is going for Floyd, and Mark for Manny. When you are rich like these guys it’s easy to make bets like this because there is really nothing to worry about. $250K is a lot of money, but it’s small change to them. Who you think will win this bet?? Diddy probably is not used to someone calling him out for small wager like Mark does at first.
Washington Redskins receiver Desean Jackson has scored a major win off the field, getting his own reality show for the BET network. The show will be called “Home Team” and will center on his life as a player and also off the field. If you remember many reports had said the Eagles got rid of Jackson last year due in part to the company he keeps off the field so if this show covers any of his friends in the street this show will definitely be interesting.
Grant Hill was just trying to enjoy a snack while calling the Bulls/Bucks playoff game and along came a fan and knocked him upside the head! It was all an accident but it was pretty entertaining when it happened. It damn near knocked Grant’s entire headset off. He didn’t even turn around to see who did it because he probably wanted to punch whoever just knocked into him that hard. Not everything is bad for Grant though as yesterday a group he is part of purchased the Atlanta Hawks for about $850 million. That will help him cool off.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was this year’s recipient of the Nancy Lieberman Lifetime Achievement Award given by the basketball Hall of Famer’s foundation and accepted the award at an event in Dallas last week. Romo’s speech was mostly about giving the same kind of help he’s received over the years to the kids supported by the foundation’s work, but he closed with a prediction that he’d be winning another prize early in 2016.
Iman Shumpert’s new record “Offs”, yes short for playoffs, is all about getting his teammates hyped and ready to go after a title. All the lyrics refer to coaches, teammates, and the goal at hand for the Cavs. Check it out and let us know what you think. Shump seems to be in such a better place right now, I wonder why, lol.
Call it bad timing, but it was almost worse for Cavs teammates Iman Shumpert & Anderson Varejao. The two players came within inches of being on a kiss cam for years to come. During a timeout Varejao appeared excited to tell Shump something and as Varejao got close Shump turned his head and almost turned right into a lip lock. I am sure thankfully for them the missed because players would have never let them live it down.
