The NFL draft is coming up fast and once again the prized pick is expected to be a franchise changing quarterback. This year two names stand out at the top of the heap and the truth is they may be exact opposites of each other. Famous Jameis Winston from Florida State is that flashy superstar, who loves the cameras and he loves him some him. Kind of like Deion Sanders playing quarterback with lots of drama and controversy following him everywhere. Do your homework GM's. The other kid, Marcus Mariota, is Mr Nice Guy. You would not mind if he dates your sister so mild and well mannered. Despite the fact that he has big time game, he is just an “aw shucks” type of guy off the field.
The $325 million dollar man, known as Giancarlo Stanton, is ready to lead the Miami Marlins into the next phase in their pursuit of greatness. The Marlins’ super slugger has accomplished a lot in his young career. However, this offseason he did something that most South Florida baseball fans thought would never ever happen. He helped to convince the normally cheap owner, Jeffrey Loria, to put this baseball team in a position to compete for a championship.
The NBA playoffs are coming soon and with our Miami Heat fighting for their playoff lives, they are desperately trying to get in because as Kevin Garnett would say anything is possible. All of these top tier playoff teams have their own kryptonite. All of them even the seemingly unbeatable at times Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. There are some teams that just have other team's numbers.
The Miami Dolphins have signed Ndamkong Suh and South Florida is delirious with excitement. Deep pockets Ross has done it again. Our Ryan Lasner of www.thesportsbros.com has some pretty good ideas on why Suh chose Miami and why we should all be “happy” like Pharrell.
I would love to tell you that I know exactly what the Miami Dolphins will do with speedster Mike Wallace as a big decision looms ahead. The truth is I have no idea. None. Wallace has said no to the idea of restructuring his contract. Changes are coming to the Fins that is certain. Last week the release of Brian Hartline surprised
The time has finally come around. Like the rapper Flo Rida has said, "It's Goin Down For Real." No more disputes about gloves, steroids and all of that crap. We have finally got a fight. The boxing god's have heard our cries for far too long. We actually began to wonder if rapper Dr Dre's often joked-
I was having a conversation the other day after someone asked, is there still racism in America? This may sound like an absurd question, but it is still pops up these days. Especially since we have the first Black president in American history. It's as if the election of Barack Obama was supposed to douse the flames of 300+ years of racism in America. Unfortunately it doesn't and won't work that easily. When it came time for me to answer that question, I had a very simple reply.
Randy Shannon makes his return to Florida. Things are starting to get real interesting among the big 3 of college football in the state of Florida. Well, at least for two of the three anyway. With the Seminoles out of the national championship picture after losing to Oregon in the national semi final, and the Hurricanes season coming to a merciful end at the hands of the South Carolina Gamecocks in the Duck Commander bowl, the Florida Gators were 1.) getting ready for their Birmingham Bowl matchup against
The Black Mamba has finally caught his idol at least in one category. Kobe Bryant this past weekend finally eclipsed Michael Jordan as the number three most prolific scorer in NBA history. He moved into third place behind Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Like most misunderstood and under
Even in the world of sports, Blacks are viewed differently
An interesting thing happened last week that went unnoticed. In the midst of the many protests that were occurring around the nation in response to the grand jury decisions involving the shooting of Mike Brown in Missouri and the choking death Eric Garner in New York City, something happened in sports that further solidifies how Black men are looked upon and treated differently than white men in this country. And it happened in the world of sports.
