Sometimes a story is so ridiculous you’d only believe it if it were true. This is one of those stories. Dennis Rodman, yes this Dennis Rodman,
chummed it up with his new buddy, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Perfect. But I’m not phased by this. The dude does what he wants. If anything, we should expect Rodman to visit a despotic country as nuclear tensions are mounting. Only Rodman can get away with a move like this. Only Rodman. But lets not forget Rodman’s prowess on the basketball court (five time champion, hall of famer).
Why LeBron refuses to participate in the dunk contest baffles me.
Aaaand those are all the exhibits I need. LeBron entering the dunk contest would be cooler than any bandwagon Harlem Shake video would be. It shouldn’t take a one million dollar offer from Magic Johnson to convince Bron Bron. For the fans, man! Do it for the fans!
Alright that’s enough non-New England talk.
The Sox and Yanks had their first exhibition game of the 2013 season; you can throw away the score (5-2 Yankees) and look at what really matters. Dempster was nice in his second spring training start, retiring all but one in three scoreless innings. He was remarkably efficient in the start, throwing first pitch strikes to all nine batters he faced, and out of his 28 pitches, 25 were strikes. Hopefully, this trend continues into the season and Dempster can help us forget about Boston’s putrid pitching last year.
The B’s squared off with the Canadiens last night and its safe to say that the rivalry hasn’t softened a bit. The Habs sulked away with a 4-3 win, securing the top spot in the East. After the game, coach Claude and Brad Marchand called out noted flopper P.K. Subban for embellishing multiple hits in an effort to draw penalties. The Canadiens lead the NHL with 100 power plays and it is no mystery why with gutless skaters like PK falling left and right. Despite the loss, the Bruins sent a “Dont F with us” message when Zdeno Chara bundled Alexei Emelin after Emelin broke his stick on a cross check to Tyler Seguin’s ribs.
When is this bitch-ass Canadien team going to learn? You don’t poke the bear.
And my personal favorite Chara highlight:
Let’s Talk Balls Spits the hot fire.
