Good day, sports fans. I do apologize for what has been a slow few weeks here– both Drew and I have been under the weather and there hasn't been much going on from a blog perspective. We expect things to pick up soon now that the two worst months of the year are over. The cold, frigid (though this year Al Gore provided us some warmth) months of January and February are finished. We can move on to baseball, meaningful hockey and… well, the Sixers stumbling like a nerdy kid trying to leg out a triple in kickball.
Last night the Sixers lost for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, sixth time in seven games… and that’s not the Here Come The Sixers pun I wanted to make.
However, there was one positive takeaway: Malik Rose’s #shitmaliksays had a good night, highlighted by this gem while James Harden was choking on free throws:
Excellent. Glad to see Malik has kept up the full court press as we get into the dog days of, um, I guess March.
– DeSean Jackson shut down Gucci last night. I’m not up on all things thug, but I assume this means they either “stayed so late they closed the store” or “it was shut down because celebs were in the house.” I don’t care to research further.
– Good article on Mike Richards and Jeff Carter being reunited.
– Here’s a grainy pic of Shane Victorino, Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon shooting a March Madness spot for TNT. The network, along with CBS, will be featuring celebs and athletes in spots throughout March.
– Finally, when a friend told me yesterday that Jeremy Roenick was advertising the Harley that he is selling on eBay through his Twitter page, I wondered why I couldn’t see the update myself. It turns out it's because JR blocked me following this somewhat heated exchange with your friendly neighborhood blogger. Sad.
Anyway, JR was back at it again yesterday, first telling off fans on Twitter…
… and then a hilariously heated exchange with Mike Milbury on NBC Sports Comcast Whatever The Fuck. Video after the jump.
