These are the times we live in. Arguing about the color of a dress on social media and EVERYONE getting sucked into it. Rather you thought the dress was gold & white, or blue & black, you likely were voicing your opinion via twitter, Instagram or some other platform. People were literally going crazy and wondering why it was even changing colors in front of their eyes. The sports world was no different as numerous players and teams jumped in the fun to debate what color it was. For the record ladies and gentlemen, the dress was White & Gold! Check the gallery.
Manny Pacquiao is too funny sometimes, even when he isn’t trying. Manny can’t sing for shit, and recently said he was giving it up. It appears though he has new inspiration now that his fight with Floyd Mayweather is official. Pacman has gone ahead and jumped back in a studio, this time to create his own song for his entrance music for the May 2nd fight. This is so conceited that it’s hilarious. I guess he figures he if is going to walk out to music anyway it might as well be his own. Pacquaio laid down the vocals for “Lalaban Ako Para sa Pilipino” … which we’re told translates to “I Fight for Filipinos.”
When it was reported earlier this week that Derrick Rose was going to need another procedure on his right knee we all likely had the same reaction…it’s over for him! Not only just him, but over for the Bulls as far as this season is concerned as well. Rose has shown in the past he at times is not mentally tough, which is even more important when it comes to injuries. The good news in this case is now that a few days have passed, more info has become available and Rose’s injury may not be so bad after all and could lead to him returning during the regular season.
Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings has apologized for a postgame incident Thursday night in which he was caught on camera berating his player Wade Baldwin IV profanely, at one point saying, “I’m going to f—ing kill you.” Stallings said “he did not mean his words literally” when confronting Baldwin, who had taunted a Tennessee player in the postgame handshake line. Based on his choice of words, I am not sure his apology is going to end this story.
The NBA as we know today, with African-American players pretty much being the majority in the league, gets taken for granted because it has been like this for so long. However it wasn’t always like this young sports fans. The NBA used to be full of nothing but white players, and I mean really white. Earl Lloyd showed courage and made such an incredible long term impact when he played his first NBA game in 1950, becoming the first black player in the history of the league, and at the same time changing the future.
Ahhh social media, you gotta love it! Yesterday the country was taken by storm by a dress that had people bugging out over it’s true color and earlier in the day we had llamas on the loose in Arizona, which led to a whole bunch of jokes and memes. The llamas were seen running around in Sun City, Arizona and showed off some speed and moves that NFL coaches wish their players had. It led to the Arizona Cardinals twitter account offering contracts to the llamas, but the Indianapolis Colts wanted in on the deal too, but only if they are willing to trade Andrew Luck’s beard. All in good fun. Check the gallery
Russell Westbrook had a hell of a game last night in a losing effort against the Suns, but there were times during the game where Russ was struggling. At one point when coach took Russ out of the game, you could see he was frustrated and just wanted to walk to the bench. Kevin Durant extended his hand to give Russ some love, but got totally ignored! Now some fans will make more out of this because of who the two players are, but this was really nothing more than a funny moment. KD even leaves his hand there after realizing Russ left him hanging.
Kevin Garnett held a great press conference yesterday but the introduction for his first actual game back blew that away. The Wolves held it down for the most famous player in franchise history, with a great video tribute to all his years in Minnesota before he wound up in Boston. This isn’t a situation where fans are feeling some type of way cause KG left. Wolves fans genuinely love him and are happy he got to win a title. Lebron was watching the KG intro right along with the rest of us and took to twitter to talk about the chills he was getting watching the home crowd welcome KG back. Lebron definitely knows a thing about that.
Chicago Bulls fans gotta be feeling like this can’t be life right now. Derrick Rose will need another surgery on his right knee, and although it doesn’t appear to be as serious as previous injuries, he is still likely to miss the rest of the season.
