I think we will all remember where we were when we heard Nnamdi Asomugha of the Oakland Raiders/Philadelphia Eagles/not really a member of, but cashed check from, San Francisco 49ers retired. I was out of town, and about to fall asleep on my wife while she watched, New Girl. When I got a text from my friend, who’s a diehard Oakland Raiders fan. Let’s call him Darryl Lenox. The text read, “Nhamdi missed out on the HOF by leaving Oakland.” Now it’s obvious that he a true delusional Oakland Raiders fan, because not only does he think he would be in the Hall of Fame, but he didn’t even have the decency to spell his name right. However, that text is a perfect manifesto for Nnamdi Aomugha’s career. He was a guy that was sold as the greatest defensive back in the league while in Oakland, but at the end of the day he wasn’t even good enough for us to remember how to spell his name.… Read More
On this first inaugural reincarnation of The Last Show. I talk About Kanye West, Dion Waiters, The Cavaliers, Kobe Bryant, and Duck Dynasty
Dion Waiters and the Cleveland Cavaliers, haven’t been coming along as quickly as many people thought.
Going into this season they were unanimously picked as a team that would take the leap to the playoffs. So when the Cavaliers stumbled out of the gate at 4 – 12, it was time issue blame.
The blame could have started with the owner, but who wants to test Dan Gilbert’s gangster. If you even thought about blaming him, your family wouldn’t get a Comic Sans ransom note.
The next person in line was the coach, but he hasn’t been here long enough to get blame. However I have faith in him. Give him some time. He’ll slow the team’s tempo, and get the offense nice and constipated. Then he’ll be a candidate.
Then the media started looking at the GM. They started examining all of Chris Grant’s decisions. The big indictment against him was his draft selections.… Read More
The idea that Robinson Cano would play for the Seattle Mariners is preposterous. He is using the Mariners to get a contract from a team that he really wants to play for.
Now I applaud Seattle for their inconsequential effort. It’s nice for them to try to land a good player. I’m use to them investing in slap single hitters, with the goal of making more money. However, I am starting to concede that they may be changing their stripes. Over the last 3 seasons they took a run at Prince Fielder, Josh Hamilton, and they got rid of Ichiro. When you couple that with their push to sign Cano, you have to take notice. Perhaps the Mariners are trying to be relevant? Maybe they have finally figure out that Safeco Field wasn’t built for them to profit off of ticket holders. While fielding a Triple-A baseball team.
For a minute, let’s say Cano goes to Seattle.… Read More
