Rihanna stole the show in Giorgio Armani.

Jessie J looks like a human disco ball in this Julien Mcdonald creation, and I mean that in a good way. I just wish I could see this number in person, I am sure the cameras do not do it justice!

Kelly Osborne looks incredible in this Tony Ward gown, everything from the color of her hair to her tattoos meshes perfectly with her look!

This Alberta Feretti dress fits Kelly Rowland like a glove, I love how feminine this look is, the color is just gorgeous on her!

Katy Perry keeps it extraterrestrial with the blue theme in this stunning Elie Saab gown.

Adele is the ultimate class act in this Giorgio Armani gown.

There you have it, my picks for the best dressed at this years Grammy Awards, there were so many fabulous looks to choose from, I really had trouble narrowing this down! Stay tuned for my worst dressed list…




We have one of the best finals match ups in years, who will come out on top?

Keywords: nba finals, thunder, heat

 

After a long season it all comes to this…..actually it was a strike shortened season, but Im still tying to set the mood. Anyway we all know the match up, the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Lebron James and Kevin Durant. Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook. Chris Bosh and, well you get the point.

 

 

On paper obviously it seems like a series that will be very entertaining and incredibly close. Many actually have the Miami Heat as the underdog, and a team that could potentially be swept out. With all the trouble Lebron has had in the finals the Thunder have become the popular pick. But the question is, are they the right pick?

 

 

I want to say that the Thunder are the right pick, but I just dont feel good about it. Lebron was sensational against the Celtics, especially after the return of Chris Bosh. I think Lebron will finally shake the jitters and have a spectacular finals. There are a lot of other thing I could look at, the Thunder have the best bench in the NBA and the Heat are one of the strongest defensive teams. When it comes down to it though none of that will matter if Lebron stays on fire. I got the Miami Heat winning it in 6.

Ice Cube’s Triple Double and Michael Jordan’s journey into and out of baseball

Keywords: michael jordan, ice cube, white sox, bulls, retirement, it was a good day

 

So last week I said that my songs wouldn’t necessarily have anything to do with basketball. But this week it just worked too well again. Ice Cube released It Was A Good Day in 1993, around the time our little walk down memory lane begins, but we will get to that later.

The reason I love this song is for when Ice Cube talks about playing pickup basketball and says “last week f****d around and got a triple double.” It was always funny to me when I imagined Ice Cube actually kept track of his stats during a pickup game. And of course to continue playing to the basketball theme, another moment of Cubes perfect day consist of watching the Lakers beat the Supersonics. And remember, this is 90′s rap, so throw on the earmuffs because language is a bit coarse.

 

 

While Ice Cube was messing around on the basketball court, one man stopped playing the game. That man would be Michael Jordan. Jordan announced his retirement on October 6th of 1993, quite a few months after Cubes song came out. Anyway, Jordan cited lack of passion for the game as his reason for retirement. That passion was lost as his father had been murdered shortly before Jordan retired. His father had always dreamed of Michael as a baseball player, so that is where Jordan headed.

 

 

Michael Jordan spent parts of 2 seasons playing within the Chicago White Sox organization. The first season without their superstar the Bulls did quite all right, going 55-27. But midway through the second season without MJ the Bulls were just 31-31. Jordan would down blow the sporting world away once again, simply announcing “I’m back.” Jordan led the Bulls back to the playoffs that season and following a series loss to the Magic, he led them on to their second three peat.

Syracuse will ditch the Big East for the ACC in 2013, but it will cost them

Keywords: syracuse, acc, big east

 

The Big East has been having a rough time of it lately. A few of their top basketball schools are bolting for the much more storied ACC. Normally a team would have to wait two years before being able to depart, but the Syracuse Orange are paying an early departure fee. The Orange will drop $7.5 million in order to jump to the ACC for the start of the 2013 season. Now for those that remember, back in 2003 Cuse won the NCAA tournament led by Carmelo Anthony. But unlike Melo, the Orange will not be showcased in Madison Square Garden anymore as they head out of the Big East.
