NHL Free Agency Draws Near

Aaaaaaaand given the frenzy of trades at the draft last Friday, I’d say we are in for a fairly boring free agent “frenzy” on Wednesday, July 1st, the first day of free agency. There are a few big names out there and we’ll take a look at some of them but I fully plan on having a free agency post up on Wednesday that will be updated with up to the minute transactions across the league. Also, be sure to follow me on twitter @kpharkins as I talk about all the really dumb decisions made by general managers and players alike. Oh what fun!

NBA Finals: 4 Things That Shouldn’t Surprise Us

While the 2015 NBA Playoffs have been amazing, the Finals themselves have proven to be astronomically good through the first several games. Overtime games, incredible individual performances, and diving all over the place have been the custom so far, leaving hope that these Finals will continue to be the highly exciting events they’ve proven to be so far.

However, some of the elements in the Finals so far have people living in shock and awe over things that shouldn’t surprise them. Yes, it’s surprising that the Warriors can’t seem to shoot straight and yes it’s surprising that the Cavs were been able to take a game away from the home-court advantage of the Warriors, but there are three things that people are shocked by that they really shouldn’t be.

Going Green, Vol. 10: NBA Finals Chatter & Should College Athletes Get Paid?

In both breaking news and a related story the Chicago Bulls have got rid of Tom Thibodeau and have hired Iowa State men’s basketball coach Fred “The Mayor” Hoiberg.

In our last Going Green, Sonja thought Thibodeau should be fired while I figured the Bulls would keep a former NBA Coach of The Year who racked up a 255 wins in 5 seasons. But I was wrong and the lady was correct…again!

So what do we have for you this week?

How about the NBA Finals changing the playoff schedule on us and college football bringing in big bucks and not sharing it with the players.

UFC 187 Review

6239716349_e4cfd6fa17_o

Wow is all I have to say after watching UFC 187. Every fight was entertaining in their own way. I am going to give a brief takeaway from the event.

The whole show went as I expected minus a I thought Uriah Hall won the fight and I thought Travis Brown but here we go.

Joseph Benavidez always looks good he did again with a solid  unanimous decision win.

I really thought Brown would win but Arlovsky put on his best performance to get the first round KO

Donald Cerrone won a  tough fight with John Makdessi via head kick. Makdessi Took this fight on short notice and gained mine and others respect .

Chris Weidman stops Vitor Belfort in the first round. But needed to take the Phenom down in order to do so because he was rocked while trading on the feet

image

I feel like I’m repeating myself because the Main event went the same way.  Anthony Johnson came out swinging knocking Daniel off his feet. Props to the  new champ Comier for taking those shots and weathering the storm and wearing out  Johnson to get a rear naked choke victory

image

Overall the PPV was awesome one of the best this year.

Babcock Has Moved On

And, now, so must we.

It’s Friday. It’s been an exhaustingly long week. Mostly due to work but the ordeal of anxiously waiting for Babcock to do what it seemed like he was always going to do, leave Detroit for a different opportunity…..and a metric crap ton of money. Somehow this Babcock thing has completely overshadowed the end of the second round of the playoffs, the fun World Championships that were going on and the start of the Conference Finals in the NHL. Wednesday was Babcock’s self-imposed decision day and he kept it, making the shocking/not so shocking decision to leave Detroit for….Toronto. The Toronto part was the shocking bit as it seemed everything he said prior to his decision pointed away from Toronto as a destination.
