One of my favorite days of the off season is when the NFL schedule comes out. I don’t recall there being a three hour production on the schedule in years past but in the day in age of the players declaring the team they are signing with by shaving it into the back of their head, and LeBron’s decision, why not have a show to announce the schedule that is as long as one of the Lord of the Rings movies.
This past Tuesday the NFL unveiled the new Nike uniforms for all 32 teams. Most all looked about the same, except for the Seattle Seahawks and our own Carolina Panthers. The new logo is featured, as well as the words, “Keep Pounding” embroidered in the neck line. It was great to see the new look, but what I kept wondering was whether we would see Stewart on a number 28 Panthers jersey this season.
Peyton Manning to The Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, the Manning, Tebow saga played out like an episode of Days of Our Lives. So now that the dust has settled on both the Manning story and my recent move to a new house (I am still sneezing and unpacking) what it will be like in Denver for Manning and Fox.
After their early exit in the NCAA tournament yesterday I wanted to wish Duke a happy St. Patrick’s Day. The boys blue now have the day off to enjoy all the festivities this day has to offer, the parades, green beer, corned beef, and Irish Car Bombs.
All ten of the people who read my blog have been sending me emails the past few weeks so I decided to answer a few. I love getting the emails and you can ask me anything you want from sports to television to dating advice, whatever you got I’ll do my best to answer it. So without further adieu here is my mail-blog.
So what is in a name? Well, to the people at bringbackthebuzz.com, it means a great deal. The guys at Bring Back the Buzz have started a grassroots movement to help bring the Hornets name back to Charlotte. So, what exactly would that mean for Charlotte and the basketball community here?
A few weeks ago I wrote a Valentine’s Day letter to Duke. For the most part it wasn’t, well, lets just say very nice. It apparently raised quite a ruckus, so for that I would like to apologize. So Duke, I am sorry.
With two major events taking place this weekend in Florida, I thought one sport came up short while the other exceeded expectations. NASCAR showed the NBA that this is how you throw a party. So where did basketball go wrong and where did racing go right (or left if you really want to get technical about it)?
After watching Duke barely survive in overtime against Virginia Tech, I couldn’t help but wonder has Duke lost their mystique at home. Is Cameron not the feared place to play it once was? It seems as though Duke has been more impressive on the road then they have been host.
As I sat and started to look at things I started to realize that it wasn’t really Valentines that has me so angry. It is that Carolina-Duke game from last Wednesday. As a lifelong Carolina fan I am still genuinely pissed off about that game, and since I have a forum to sound off on I am going to spend this V-day sounding off on the Dookies I’ve hated the most over the years.
