Jeremy Lin speaks out on who his favorite Pokemon is

Keywords: jeremy lin, pokemon

 

So today a friend of mine reffered me to an article on Deadspin way back when Lin went into surgery. Now there were a lot of little trivia fact in the piece, but those really don’t matter to me after reading the big one. Jeremy Lin said his favorite Pokemon was Blastoise. Really? Blastoise? Jeremy Lin may have been the only kid that got Pokemon Blue Version instead of Red. I know for a fact that all the kids on the playground were all about Charizard. And maybe some of the hipster kids would pick Venusaur. But not one pick Blastoise.

 

You may be asking yourself, “hey Rob, what does this have to do with basketball?” The answer may surprise you. Absolutely nothing. I just cant get over the fact that a guy as skilled as Linsanity picked the most irrelevant of the Pokemon starters of 90′s. Then again, he is a Harvard graduate in the NBA. Maybe I should have chosen Squirtle way back in the day?




David Stern discusses only allowing players 23 and under to compete

Keywords: david stern, kobe bryant

Commissioner David Stern has been floating around an idea that would put an age restriction on NBA player’s competing in the Olympics. The rule would prevent anybody over the age of 23 from playing basketball in the Olympic games. Of course a major change like this would garner quite a bit of backlash, led by none other then Kobe Bryant.

“It’s a stupid idea. It should be a player’s choice. Basically, it’s just a dumb idea and we discuss it that way.We just discuss it like that and kind of voice our opinions through you (media) guys.”

 

I 100% disagree with Kobe on this one. I think Stern is spot on with this idea, which is something I will probably never say again. The Olympics are supposed to be a competition for amateurs. It sort of loses some luster when you have a team of All Stars and MVP’s.

Personally I don’t think they should stop at 23. I would prefer that the Olympics was restricted purely to college basketball players, or guys straight out of college like Anthony Davis. The whole professional thing has led to just USA domination, which has gotten quite tiresome. Now I honestly don’t expect either of these things to happen. Unfortunately the players have too much of a say in these types of things, and they will not let Stern restrict them from playing for their country.

I’m gonna say it:  Hot. Mess.

Keywords: sinead oconnor, wedding, hot mess, barry herridge

Sinead O’Connor got married for the fourth time last week, I didn’t even know she got married 3 other times to be honest- Up until I read the article I thought she was a Lesbian, right?  Like that’s the last thing I heard,  Sinead O’Connor, lesbian, unmarried.   Then over the weekend I’m on my phone surfing the information super highway and I find out Sinead has been married 3 times previously, she’s not a lesbian, she just turned 45,  and she looks like an absolute train wreck!  They got married late last week at the Little White WeddingChapel in Las Vegas-  yuuuuup, same place Britney(who just turned 30) got hitched for her short-lived wedding a few years back.

I’m not being mean here people, I’m just calling it like it is. What the heck happened to her?   I remember her years back with the shaved head, and I actually thought she pulled it off great.  Now she just looks beat up. I respect tattoos,  but sheesh, when did “tattoo giant pirate hat across my chest” sound like a good idea?

 

Her Husband looks like he just rolled out of bed.   Come on dude,  how bout a little starch in the collar?  A little gel in the hair? A little tailoring on that suit?  anything? This is your wedding man! Clean up for the show!   throw a little iron into that thing or something!  rub some viagra on it,  do what you gotta do but when you have a beautiful bride like Sinead O’Connor on your arm…

OOOOOOHHHHHHHH!  I GET IT!  You’re marrying Sinead O’Connor and you don’t NEED to clean up for anything.  It all makes sense now. Sag on Barry, Pirate hat it up Sinead, the Drive-Thru-Wedding ceremony is your stage!




Kevin Love does a trim job that has him looking like a middle school kid

Keywords: kevin love, ricky rubio, haircut, twolves

 

On most nights Kevin Love is getting ready to be the feature player of the T-Wolves, pulling down 20 rebounds and dropping 30 points. Well n0w he looks like he is getting ready to go to junior prom. Love decided that it was time for a haircut, and Ricky Rubio decided it was time to tweet a picture of the now hairless Love. Behind the grizzly beard of the 23 year old appears to be what is a 14 year old. Lets see if the lack of beard effects the super stars game.

 

 

This is what Love looked like before the transformation. I gotta say this look is a lot more intimidating. Even I think I could take this new Kevin Love and I am vertically challenged. Well to be honest the actual middle school version of Love could probably still school me.




Hey Kimye – fashion week does NOT revolve around you!!!

Keywords: kim kardashian, kanye west, paris fashion week

On Tuesday, the fame whore couple  Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up to the Stephane Rolland Couture show in Paris, almost an hour late! The show waited a while for them before it began, and then finally, someone with a brain decided that the show must go on. The duo showed up just before the finally, setting the Twittersphere into a frenzy.

 

I know that these two are big spenders, and that Kanye thinks he’s the next Gaultier, but seriously, no one cares about these two that much, especially in the world of fashion!




Dwayne Wade gets a bit too physical in this weekends All Star Game

Keywords: kobe bryant, dwayne wade, all star game, broken nose

The All Star Game is supposed to be a glorified pick up game. Just the best players showing off their skills and throwing down some moves. But as the game goes on both teams do end up getting more and more competitive, as a result we have Kobe Bryant with a broken nose. Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat put a hard foul on Kobe as he was going for a layup. Bryant also is having some concussion like symptoms. And now for possibly the most useless record ever set, during the game Kobe passed Michael Jordan to get the all time record for scoring in All Star Game history. It is basically like getting the high score on the Frogger machine at your local pizza place.
