Ebony's dream came true
In today's ever changing climate of the "me, me, me" athlete, every now and then you come across an athlete that despite it all, is not all about self. We all love the game winning home runs, the dramatic touchdowns and the buzzer beating three pointers. Those are the reasons we love sports and are often glued to our televisions. However, we also never get tired of what Lebron James accomplished this past weekend during a Miami Heat game in Milwaukee. James turned a high school basketball player’s dream into a reality — one that she will never ever forget.
I remember when a young and dominant Eldrick Tiger Woods dominated The Masters Golf tournament winning by a mind boggling 13 strokes. I remember when folks that never bothered to watch golf would always turn on their televisions on Sundays to watch Tiger just intimidate his competition. Even if he was trailing the leader, his mere presence forced golf's greatest players into epic meltdowns. They knew Tiger was lurking and it meant huge ratings for television and the sport of golf was thriving because Tiger was the man. At the rate Tiger was winning and dominating, the thought of him passing
Finally we got to see heads roll in the Miami Dolphins’ bullying scandal following the release of the Ted Wells report. Offensive line coach Jim Turner, yes he of the blow up doll purchases, gone. Longtime athletic trainer Kevin O’Neill whom we understand refused to cooperate with the Wells report — gone.
The Ted Wells investigation into the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal finally came to an end and was released to the media this past weekend. Wells’ 140-plus page report on the drama that unfolded in ‘Fins camp leading up to Jonathan Martin’s departure from the team is graphic, troublesome and not the type of behavior one would expect from grown men. Firstly he did a masterful job of sifting through the evidence, concluding that Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey were the main
Super Bowl week is upon us, and the lines in the sand have been drawn. Good versus evil, the legend against the loud mouth. What we have is the Denver Broncos with the leagues top rated offense and record-shattering quarterback Peyton Manning against the Seattle Seahawks and that top-rated defense led by the game's best and loudest corner, Richard Sherman.
Before the search for the new Miami Dolphins general manager got underway, owner Stephen Ross felt it was necessary to clear up the confusion on what exactly the new GM's role would be within the franchise. There were reports that the GM would essentially be powerless, leading to execs around the league to steer people away from the job whom were otherwise interested. Yes you read
University of Miami coach Al Golden won’t be the next coach at Penn State. Golden, who played at Penn State from 1987-91 and spent a season there as an assistant, said Sunday that he is not a candidate. So now what? Do we hear a collective sigh of relief or is that disappointment? I guess it depends on which side of the fence you stand on.
The Miami Dolphins would be in the playoffs if the season ended today, despite their embarrassing 19-0 loss this past Sunday in Buffalo. However, with one more week to go in this wacky NFL season we will attempt to explain the playoff scenarios to you.
Enjoy the ride, Miami. LeBron James, the world's best basketball player, has shown no signs of slowing down despite playing a career low in minutes to begin the season. James was recently named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the second time in Nov. and is already in mid-season form. James is averaging right around 35.5 minutes per game through the Heat’s first 17 games of the season. Maybe head coach Erik Spoelstra has been watching Greg
In the midst of all of the chaos that has surrounded the Miami Dolphins in the past few weeks, they have somehow managed to be very competitive in the playoff hunt. The glare of the national media spotlight has not had the ill effect so many expected. Not yet, anyway. While the NFL is prowling all over the Davie facilities looking for answers in the never ending Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin saga here are the Dolphins still in playoff contention.
