If you love The Karate Kid series (FINISH HIM!), then make sure you tune into the Versus Network in the upcoming week and a half. If you liked the trilogy once, you'll love it five times. Now remember, SWEEP THE LEG JOHNNY!
We were all over the Greg Paulus being a cheap shot artist puss-bag yesterday morning, but it looks like we weren't alone. Mr. Irrelevant found this youtube clip of ESPN's Mike Patrick acting as if he is Paulus' agent.
Not a good sign for the Astros if their new Shortstop and the man they gave five prospects for Miguel Tejada gets his Green card revoked and is deported. It's a very realistic option.
Boy does the city of Green bay take their football seriously. The local Fox affiliate cancelled Saturday night's episode of Seinfeld because it's Eli Manning's favorite show. No, this is not a joke either.
It must be nice to be Sean Penn. You played Spicoli. You were in Dead Man Walking, Mystic River, Colors, The Game, etc. You were were Madonna in her prime. Now your marriage to smokin hot Robyn Wright Penn is over because of your constant flirtations with the even hotter Sienna Miller.
Evidently, one national writer thinks Lebron James has the Cavaliers on the move.
Jason Whitlock never fails to bring race into an national article. This time it's regarding the Randy Moss restraining order situation. I happen to think Moss is being blackmailed.
Cleveland State 56 #12 Butler 52 - The biggest win in two decades for the Vikings. Gary Waters has officially made his mark. CSU led the majority of the game, and played stifling defense of Butler's vaunted three point shooting attack. The Bulldogs made just 6-23 from deep and 34% for the game. Star Guard A.J. Graves was just 2-11. J'Nathan Bullock held his own against Matt Howard, scoring 14 and grabbing nine boards, but it was the play of point guard Cedric Jackson that was the difference. He controlled the game scoring 14 points, dishing out five assists and locking down Graves. It was CSU's first win over a ranked team since the 1986 Mouse McFadden led squad knocked off Indiana in the NCAA Tournament. The fans stormed the floor when the buzzer sounded. "It's big," Waters said. "What we're trying to do is establish a foundation. It [the win] will help people understand that there are some good things going on at Cleveland State."
#7 Tennessee 80 #14 Vanderbilt 60 - If there was a lock of the year, this was the game. We know Vandy was coming off a loss, but we saw this one coming a mile away. The first good team Vandy has met on the road blew their doors off. Wayne Chism was a beast with 18 and 18. Tyler Smith had 14 and nine. JaJuan Smith had 14 and six. The swarming defense forced 21 Vandy turnovers and held the best three point shooting team in the SEC to 3-21. Need we say more? This is what we call being outclassed.
#8 Washington State 69 Oregon State 46 - Solid bounce back game for the Cougars on the heels of the thrashing at the hands of UCLA. Arron Baynes had 17 and Derrick Low had 15. Nothing like the 6-11 Beavers coming to town to get you back into your groove.
#10 Indiana 65 Minnesota 60 - These are the kind of games that separate good teams from average ones. On a night where Indiana clearly did not have it - they committed 24 turnovers - they pulled it out in the end thanks to a huge three by Lance Stemler. Eric Gordon did not have one of his better games, going just 3-8 for 12 points, but fellow Freshman Jordan Crawford came off the bench with a huge 16. Give Tubby Smith's Gophers credit; they fought hard and hung around all night. The held the Hoosiers without a field goal for over eight minutes in the second half. But in the end, IU's superior talent was the difference in front of a hostile Barn crowd.
