Did Sidney Crosby get special treatment while renewing his driver's license?
I don't care either way.
I don't expect the Penguins to admit their superstar got bumped to the front of the line.
And I wouldn't expect the DMV to keep Crosby waiting in line for an extended period of time.
Yeah, it would stink to be there for an hour and see Crosby walk up and go to the front of the line. But can you imagine the problems that would arise if Crosby waited, while everyone hit social media to say where Crosby was?
James Harrison's game might have slipped, but his mouth sure hasn't.
Harrison told reporters Monday that HBO's "Hard Knocks" shouldn't be at Bengals training camp.
"I don't feel they deserve to be here. They did nothing to be here other
than they want to be here. They didn't put no blood, sweat and tears
into of this."
Gotta hand it to Harrison, he still knows how to create a stir.
It remains to be seen how much of a stir he can cause on the field. It also remains to be seen how he'll adapt to playing for the Bengals.
When it comes to fantasy baseball, the regular season is all about making the right waiver wire pickups, and trading for guys at the right time. With about a month of the season in the book, some owners might be getting a bit frustrated with solid players having bad starts. So who are some of the best players to target in a trade that you could probably get for well below value? Here’s a look at three of the best options.
David Price and Matt Cain are two of the top pitchers who have struggled early, but most fantasy baseball owners will probably be smart enough to hold onto them. However, Gallardo has never truly been elite, so chances are you can trade for him without giving up a ton.
The right-hander is consistent with his strikeouts and walk rate throughout his career, so despite them being out of control right now, they should return to normal. He has had a few slow starts in the past, and it might actually be a pattern for him.
I couldn't wait until "The Walking Dead" wrapped up Season 3.
The first half of the season was fantastic, pick up where the second half of Season 2 left off. But the last half of Season 3 had its ups and downs.
I'm glad to see Rick survive, along with Daryl, too. Those two characters add spice to the show.
However, Andrea, was time to go. She started to grow on me in the last two episodes, but it was hard to feel too much emotion to see her go -- and I'm sure it was supposed to be an emotional ending. I was sorry to see Merle go and not Andrea.
Walkers bit the dust, which was cool, and The Governor became unhinged, but there just seemed to be something missing from the episode.
Maybe I wanted more from the big showdown between Rick and The Governor.
Maybe I wanted another cliffhanger, like the mid-season finale.
Sunday's episode wrapped up too nicely, with Rick leading citizens of Woodbury to a new home in the prison.
I had quite a stretch of going to opening day games in Pittsburgh. In a 25-year stretch, I believe it was 24 opening days. The one I missed, I was living in Indiana and couldn't make the seven-hour drive to the opener.
That's changed; I have a new streak going.
I've missed three straight openers.
And it looks like I didn't miss much Monday.
It's just one game, but opening day gets all the attention. And that attention wasn't too good.
The Bucs had their best pitcher, A.J. Burnett on the mound and they lost to the lowly Cubs.
Jeff Samardzija improved his career ERA to 4.01 after his eight shutout innings.
Am I a bad fan? I think not.
Is it a boycott? I don't think so, although some might interpret it that way.
I just choose not to give Bob Nutting any of my money.
Nutting is all about the money. I'll chose to do the same. I'll keep my hard-earned dollars and spend it somewhere else.
This is the fifth version of Bracket Racket, my way of picking the NCAA champion.
Last year was a darn good year for the Racket.
Heck, let's be honest. It was an excellent year. My formula correctly picked the championship game -- Kentucky vs. Kansas -- and it picked the winner.
How do you top it? I guess simply do it again.
I've tweaked the equation over the years, and after last year's success, there's not much to update.
Here's the path to narrow your picks to one champion:
First things first, first-round games are a joke: Honestly, no national champion will emerge from this group. And why does Dayton get to host this every year? The Sour 16: While we're being honest, no 16 seed has beaten a No. 1 seed. Go with history.
Capital losses: It's easier to say UNLV instead of University of Nevada at Las Vegas. It still doesn't make them a threat to win it all. Take all teams that use capital letters off your list (UNLV, UCLA, VCU).
