Marshawn Lynch is now telling everyone that they know why he is here. This is one the things that has taken over the Super Bowl as people in the media try to force Marshawn Lynch to talk to them. There are many things that people could be doing to help break some stories at the Super Bowl or get some interesting information, but they should not be going to Lynch for sound.

When people are chasing around Lynch hoping that he will be the person to talk to them, they are simply making the situation even more ridiculous.Fans like Dave and Brit Morin agree that if he does not want to talk, he should not have to talk. That is the end of that discussion. However, we have become obsessed with a guy who simply does not like talking to the media. At least he is polite about it, but he should not have all these people following him around all the time.

Lynch seems like a good guy, but it is time to leave him alone. He needs a chance to get ready for the game, and he would prefer to not be bothered. If you want to hear him talk at length, watch the Skittles commercial.

Posted by on January 28, 2015 | No comments

The world has been waiting for Manny Pacquiao to face Floyd Mayweather. It actually almost came to fruition, but Floyd Mayweather refuses to sign the contract. Pacquiao agreed to all of the terms that Mayweather presented, but Mayweather still refuses to sign the dotted line. Floyd has announced that he will be fighting on May 2, but it will not be Manny Pacquiao.

Boxing fans all over the world are angered beyong belief. This last month, Manny Pacquiao has been openly challenging Mayweather to a fight. Pacquiao has done everything possible, but Mayweather still hasn’t agreed to a fight. There can be only one reason that Mayweather will not fight against Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather knows that he could potentially lose against Manny.

Fans of Floyd Mayweather, like Dave and Brit Morin, can make all of the excuses that they want. Read more about them on Mashable.com. Their fighter refuses to fight Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather blames the failed negotiations on Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum. Manny Pacquiao openly stated that Bob Arum has nothing to do with Mayweather’s refusal of the fight. How long can Mayweather avoid Manny Pacquaio? The world of boxing can no longer refer to Mayweather as the pound for pound king.

Manny Pacquiao is the true pound for pound champion. He has defeated his last three opponents with ease, and they were all high level fighters. Floyd Mayweather will never fight Manny Pacquiao, and we must accept that Mayweather is not the greatest fighter of our era.

Gasol All Stars

Posted by on January 27, 2015 | No comments

Marc is the Gasol brother that has been consistently overshadowed by his older brother Pau, who has won two NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and is currently a five time All Star that commands tremendous respect around the league. Marc has been an amazing player in his own right, although he has played for teams that have failed to gain the type of prominence that Pau has experienced. Fans like Bernardo Chua watched as Marc busted out of his shell this year, and has been amidst discussions of the most valuable player race dating back to the beginning of the season. More about Chua is available on Zoominfo.com. Although he has dropped off that race a bit, as Stephen Curry has absolutely exploded in Golden State and will likely take that tile at the end of the season, Gasol has put on a show that has taken him to the starting spot on the All Star roster. He is finally getting the recognition that he deserves and the two brothers could not be happier about the fact that they will both be starting and actually playing against each other in the All Star game. It gives a ton of validity to the play that Marc has been throwing down for the last half a decade and Marc is ecstatic not only with making the team but with how his team has been playing this season. The Grizzlies have been playing phenomenal basketball and will absolutely be in the hunt once the playoffs roll around.

White Gets Fourth

Posted by on January 27, 2015 | No comments

Shaun White has been hands down the best snowboarder in the world over the last fifteen years. He exploded on the scene and started winning contest after contest with so much consistency that he was likely the only snowboarder that non fans of the sport knew. He actually transcended the sport and became a celebrity and he has carried that into today’s day and age. After completely dominating the sport for so many years and truly making it look unfair for the rest of the competition, his game has started to slow down and other riders have clearly taken over the spotlight.

After this happened, he kind of backed off from competitions and has not been seen since his last appearance in Sochi where he gave a lackluster performance at best. He made a return this year and decided to compete in the X games Super pipe, which as my friend Sultan Alhokair proved with his youtube.com collection,  he has owned over the last decade and he had hoped to get back into the spotlight. It wasn’t going to happen for the high flying red head, as he didn’t even finish with a medal. He actually got fourth place and was not on the podium for the first time at X games ever. It looks like the ship has sailed for Shaun White, as he just simply cannot match up with the up and coming riders that have taken over the snowboarding world.

White Back in the Mix

Professional snowboarder Shaun White has captured the spotlight in the extreme sport world over the last decade and he has hands down solidified his spot as one of the best snowboarders of all time. He has been insanely innovative over the years and has completely dominated the X games since he embarked on the scene. Maybe he should get with the Dave Morin on the innovation front, check this out-http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/04/26/why-paths-dave-morin-is-betting-big-on-computers-you-can-wear/

He has put up some unprecedented winning streaks since he exploded on the snowboarding world, but he has taken a bit of a departure in the last several years. Despite being a dominant snowboarder, Shaun White has become a celebrity that is also well known for his dominance on the skateboard vert ramp. He has stepped out of the spotlight in the last several years due to some injuries, but he is looking to make a big splash on the X games this year and reclaim his throne in the snowboarding world.

The X games in Aspen, Colorado is sure to test White, as the stakes have been raised exponentially since he was winning every single event. There are a handful of riders that have been coming up and dropping insane tricks that rival what Shaun White has done over the last decade and he will have to step up his game if he expects to even get a medal in this X games. Regardless of how he fares in this contest, it is going to be fun to watch what he drops this year.

Lakers Cheerleader Nailed In The Face With Basketball On Set

Posted by on January 23, 2015 | No comments

Anyone who is a fan of Will Ferrell, may want to see the video of him nailing a cheerleader at a Lakers game, right in the side of the face. You can try to keep a straight face after watching the video, but it’s absolutely hilarious. Will Ferrell Set. Will storms onto the court, and insist on taking a shot with the basketball. When he takes the basketball, he runs forward like he’s going to toss it into the net, and he instead throws it right into the side of a cheerleader’s head. The video is too funny for words.

You can see the video in slow motion, to see exactly how it goes down, and trust when we say that you won’t stop laughing. After the woman is hit with the basketball, she flies off her feet, and everyone runs to her rescue. Will is then grabbed by several security personnel, and escorted off the court. If someone was watching, they may not know that this was not real, but a staged scene for an upcoming movie with Will Ferrell. The movie is entitled “Daddy’s Home,” and it will feature Mark Wahlberg.

The scene on the basketball court, is enough to make fans like Zeca Oliveira want to go and see the movie, but it may be wise to wait for some more footage first. Will Ferrell is known for his wild antics, and has made many comedy movies over the years.

Ricardo Dos Sontos Shot Dead

Posted by on January 22, 2015 | No comments

The Surfing world is mourning today after the loss of one of the best young surfers in the world, Ricardo Dos Sontos of Brazil. Dos Santos was hands down one of the best tube riders in the world and has gained a strong reputation as one of the most consistent surfers on the tour. He gained a lot of notoriety in Tahiti in 2012 for winning the Andy Irons award for his performance at the Billabong Pro. He was allegedly shot outside his home in Brazil the other day after getting into an argument with a man who is an off duty police officer and his brother. Dos Santos suffered life threatening injuries, but did not die at the scene.

He underwent four separate surgeries in an attempt to save his life, but the attempts proved to be futile. The off duty officer that shot him stated that he acted in self-defense and that Ricardo Dos Sontos came at him with a knife, but there was no knife found at the scene of the crime. The officer has been brought in for questioning, but there has been no official charges as of yet.  Gianfrancesco Genoso, attorney by day, but surfer by heart made a statement saying that the entire surfing world lost an amazing surfer that had heaps of potential going forward in his career. More than that though, everyone liked Ricardo and he will be missed collectively by the entire surfing world for the short but big impact he made on the sport.

The Bill For Being a No Show

Posted by on January 20, 2015 | No comments

 

In a wild story out of Europe, a 5 year old boy came home from school with what would amount to a bill for $24. In Europe, the amount is £15.95. This bill is because little Alex did not show up to a classmate’s birthday party planned at Plymouth’s Ski Slope and Snowboard Centre.

Alex’s Dad had originally said yes that Alex would come, but discovered there were prior plans with the boy’s grandparents. Parents of the boy who had the party asked a teacher to give the bill to Alex to give to his Dad.

Derek, who is Alex’s Father said he will not pay this bill. He claimed he would have contacted the parents beforehand, but there was no contact information.

So will the birthday child’s parents sue? It would be a losing situation if they do. It costs £60 to make a small court claim.

I wonder if Alex will be invited to any other birthday parties in the near future. I find this the kind of crazy story you usually see on Metacritic or gag accounts. I asked friends, like Darius Fisher, what they thought about this kind of crazy story and most agreed it was a little nuts.

Harry Kane All Set for England Call Up

Posted by on January 7, 2015 | No comments

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has enjoyed a great 12 months. The English striker has been a revelation since being promoted from the club’s youth team in the 2013/2014 season. Kane has been one of their best players in recent months.

The striker has managed to score 17 times in all competitions, from 27 appearances. His scoring is not the only great asset at Kane’s disposal. He is a very technical player who has the ability to bring others into the game. His play has improved the form of Christian Eriksen as well.

The England boss Roy Hodgson has been taking a very hard look at Kane over the past few weeks. He is seriously considering adding Kane to his squad. With Daniel Sturridge injured, there is a space open in England’s front line for Kane to fill. He is in better form than Danny Welbeck, who replaced Sturridge during the fall international games.

English clubs and newspapers do have a tendency to over hype young players when they show some form. However, Kane looks like the real deal. He is a consummate professional who has been nothing but loyal to Tottenham. In addition, he looks to have the technical ability to forge a long career in the Premier League.

If Kane gets a call up it is likely that he will start alongside Wayne Rooney in attack, which makes Mark Ahn excited. Roy Hodgson will be hoping that the two can form a deadly partnership.
