But because of his personality he primed for television.

Rafael Nadal Missing US Open

15 Aug

Tennis player Rafael Nadal will not be playing in the US Open due to an ongoing knee injury. The injury also caused Nadal to have to withdraw from the London Olympics. Nadal hasn’t played since the shocking loss in the second round of Wimbledon to Lukas Rosol on June 28. Knee problems have been a constant problem for Nadal who know for intense playing. He is considered a grinder, which basically means he plays intense defense on court.

The US Open begins on August 27th. Everyone will be watching as Wimbledon champion Roger Federer takes on Olympic Gold Medalist Andy Murray.

Trade Talks: So Where is Everyone Going?

14 Jul

It’s been a crazy trading season, like usual, so I have decided to give you an easy rundown on what is happening. Here is your trade cheat sheet.

Boston Celtics

Ray Allen bid farewell to the team in order to warm the bench in South Beach with the Miami Heat. Or as some fans refer to Allen he sold his soul to the devil. But don’t worry the Celtics have managed to hold on to big man Kevin Garnett. I know what you are thinking but Garnett is like 36 but don’t forget he can still do fist push-ups so he’s good for at least another season. The Celtics also managed to hold onto Brandon Bass, Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Although Green has been out to due heart surgery he may just be the it scoring factor the Celtics need.

They are still in the process of acquiring Jason Terry from the Dallas Mavericks but the paperwork should be done by the end of the week.  So don’t worry they will be fine without Allen.

The Miami Heat

Obviously the Heat are in a great position. They are coming off their championship win and they have all three major players still in place: LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. Now they just have to hope no one gets injured. They are now just padding their bench with veteran players. Allen is the perfect example of this. Joining Allen they added Washington Wizard Rashard Lewis. Both were former Seattle Supersonic players back in the day.

One thing is clear the Heat are looking for another championship win next year.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers obviously need to replace point guard Ramon Sessions since he didn’t intend to return. And aside from that the after being knocked out of the second round of the Playoffs it was obvious something needed to change. So the Lakers brought in veteran Phoenix Sun point guard Steve Nash. We can only hope he is more comfortable on the court than he looked at the ESPY awards the other night. The Lakers also managed to hold onto Devin Ebanks for another year.

Now the question is will the Lakers end up with Dwight Howard? Up until today it was looking like the Houston Rockets were going to get Howard but now the Lakers seem to be back in the mix. There is nothing official about what the deal would look like. Everyone has speculated that Andrew Bynum would be exiting as part of the deal. As a Laker fan I would gladly take Howard over Bynum even if it’s only for a year.

Football Get Thigh Highs

22 May

The NFL has made it mandatory for players to wear thigh and knee padding starting in the 2013 season. I know this doesn’t seem like a big deal because you assume players were already wearing this stuff. A lot of players are already sporting these trendy pads but some are not. But players who are worried about speed have not been wearing this padding. This is especially true for wide receivers and cornerbacks. I can’t say I blame them, I wouldn’t want extra padding weighing me down when I am trying to run from a 250 pound dude.

More Bad Rivera News

10 May

The Yankee’s closer Mariano Rivera addressed his medical issues Wednesday. Just last week Rivera injured his knee while shagging fly balls. Wednesday he revealed that he also has a blood clot in his calf. He is taking blood thinners to try to deal with the issue. At age 42 to Rivera is determined to get back to playing next season. He is will have knee surgery and start rehabilitation shortly after. If he can’t recover than Rivera says he will retire.

I think even Red Sox fans can feel for Rivera. They surely don’t want him back but they definitely want him to get better.

Rivera’s Career Over?

4 May

Veteran Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera’s playing days may be over after he twisted his knee during practice Thursday. He tore his right ACL, and we all know what the magic words ‘torn’ and ‘ACL’ mean.He will be sitting on the bench probably all season, and who knows if he will be back at his age (42).

Rivera was in tears as he addressed reporters after the fact. It is hard to watch a grown man cry, but you have to feel for the guy. It is just awful to end a career on an injury, and an injury during practice at that.
