This week the Madison Square Garden will be hosting all the Big East teams as they compete to be the best in the Conference
Keywords: big east, big east tournament, ncaa tournament
The Big East tournament will kickoff today with a plethora of great games. DePaul and reigning NCAA champs UConn will start the action at 12. Following that game, my St. John’s Red Storm will take on Pittsburgh at around 2. A full slate of games will be played today, later tonight at around 7 Providence will battle with Seton Hall and at 9 Villanova will try to take down Rutgers. If any of these teams manage to make it to the final game of the Big East Tournament, it will mean they will have to play 5 games in 5 days. UConn accomplished this last year and that seemed to work out perfectly for them. It doesn’t matter how bad of a season any of these teams had up until today, if they can win out, then they will earn a bid to the NCAA tournament.

Since The Devil Wears Prada, I have been a HUGE Anne Hathaway fan. Not only did that movie hit close to home, but Anne was the perfect choice as the movies leading lady. I think that she is such a stunning woman and makes fabulous fashion choices even in her post-prada days (many thanks to her stylist Rachel Zoe I am sure!). So when Anne was seen on Saturday in London having chopped her luscious locks off, I, like many of you I am sure was shocked! Apparently Anne cut off her hair for the current role she has also reportedly been losing weight for as Fantine in Les Miserables.
Anne is such a beautiful girl with amazing features that she can totally rock the pixie cut! Short hair is a bold move that really shows a woman’s confidence. I admire any girl that has the guts to chop off her hair! I am DYING to hear what my girl Jill over at weSTYLEny.com has to say about this! Thoughts everyone???
A headline from NBA.com had some questionable content
Keywords: celtics, heat, nba rigged
Size limitations may prevent you from reading this, but it is a pretty telling headline. It reads “Sorry Celtics fans, but a Heat-Thinder clash in the NBA Finals would be heaven for true hoops fans.” Yea, and this was before game 7 even started. The Heat outplayed the Celtics badly in that game, but you still gotta think it is a little ridiculous that the NBA official website is picking favorites.
I’m a Kanye fan, so don’t think I’m bashing the guy. All I’m saying is at what point do we question what he wears when he leaves the house?
Fashion is independence, and a way to express your personality through any mix and assortment of clothes you can throw on before walking the door- that’s why I LOVE FASHION.
But Kanye, you’re go from Gangster to Jeggings quicker and more freely than any other man walking this earth, can we get a little consistency? For example, Pharrell Williams, we did an article on Skateboard P a while back- He sticks to one direction and rocks it proudly. He’ll show up to the Grammys in a pair of skateboard kicks, saggy skinny jeans, and a G-Shock any day of the week and pull it off…. but Kanye, I feel, leaves us guessing everyday pics are posted online of his recent outings across the world.
At the end of the day, I love the guy- racist, sexist, conceited, nasty etc etc. Say what you want about the guy, I’m not trying to be his best friend, all I’m asking out of him is to put out good music- and he’s been doing that just fine for me over the past several years. **for the record- that jacket is absolute perfection matched up with his Air Yeezys
The Knicks and Nets rivalry is finally beginning to heat up
Keywords: knicks, nets
The Brooklyn block party has been going on ever since the Nets left New Jersey. Recently the Nets had a rally in the borough with all of 1,000 fans in attendance. Yep, looks like attendance issues will remain for the Nets. Anyway, Brooklyn mayor (or president or something) Marty Markowitz went on an absolute rant against the New York Knicks.
“For nearly 40 years the Manhattan Knicks have shown they can’t bring a championship to New York, so it’s going to take the Brooklyn Nets to get the job done. So move over Manhattan — enough air balls. You had your chance.”
“Now that the Barclays Center is in town, the national basketball spotlight is focused on Brooklyn’s big stage and Madison Square Garden just doesn’t have the same sparkle anymore. By the way, for any Brooklynites still rooting for the Manhattan Knicks: as of November and on, I’m giving you fair warning: it’s treason to support the outer borough’s team over our Brooklyn Nets.”
The Knicks haven’t had any real rivalries since the 90′s. Finally though it looks like we will have a real competition on our hands. But who will win the battle of the boroughs?
We all know that Kristen Wiig is great at playing the funny gal, but more and more we are seeing just how glamourous she can be. The brunette beauty looks stunning in crisp white on the cover of the August issue of Marie Claire. I have a feeling that this won’t be the last time we’ll be seeing Kristin as a cover girl!
Blake Griffin was one of the last couple of players added to the team USA roster for the upcoming Olympic games. He started training camp off with a bang, or a boom, or whatever sound best describes a slam dunk off the wall. Anyway, we haven’t seen much from Blake in quite some time so this should hold over your dunk fix until the games actually begin. Oh and see someone familiar turning his head at the end of the video? That happens to be former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni. Clearly this team will not have an emphasis on defense.
