Small Thoughts: Rants and Raves
Raves: Congradulations to The Alabama Crimson Tide for winning the BCS National Title against the Louisiana State University Tigers in a game that was shear total domination from the defensive side of the ball, 21-0. Only one meaningless penalty toward the end of the game, which I’m sure Nick Saban stewed on the rest of the night being the perfectionist that he is. But you have to hand it to the coach he had a month to prepare and prepare he did. LSU wasn’t ready forAlabama and it showed.
Rant: Note to Billy King it is a 66 game season and your team are already 2-8 and Deron Williams is one foot out the door. The magic gave Dwight Howard and his agent permission to make trades. The teams are Mavs, Lakers and the New Jersey Nets. Get to work Mr. King before the Lakers swoop in and take Dwight Howard and cost you Deron Williams use those chips you been talking about and make it happen, by the way, did the Nets make someone in the NBA offices angry or what, three times in two weeks the Nets played the Atlanta Hawks and all three times got beat. Maybe the Nets should ask for amnesty the next time Atlanta is on the schedule.
Raves: Congratulations to the New York Football Giants for their complete disassembling of the Atlanta Falcons 24-2. Just one word of caution to all Giant fans resist the urge to compare this team to the 2007 Super Bowl team. They still have a long way to go in the playoffs. Beating the Packers isn’t going to be easy, and Aaron Rodgers isn’t Brett Favre, he’s better (Rodgers).
Raves: Congratulations to Barry Larkin on making the baseball hall of fame. Considering the fact that he played in the Ozzie Smith era (the best shortstop of the era) and still made the hall of fame says a lot about his talent. Playing his whole career in a small market (Cincinnati) winning a championship and displaying class in and out of baseball, just goes to show you can succeed without the aid of performance enhancing drugs or without all the drama that comes with many of the players today.
