NFL Week 1 Predictions From An Odd Angle.

Posted in blog roll, Blogroll, blogrolll on September 12th, 2010 by Okori Wadsworth

Let’s get this out: I don’t really watch the NFL. Like I know who people are and I know what the basic stories are. But I don’t really have the kind of knowledge I need. So I’m going to do what I do best -pick based on other reasons. Maybe I’ll pick against your team because your entire fanbase are a collection of obnoxious goons. Who can say?

Interview with “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush

Posted in blog roll on April 1st, 2010 by Okori Wadsworth

Mike Quackenbush

For those of us who are fans of pro wrestling, we hear the jokes.

“How can you watch that crap? It’s just oiled-up men in bikini briefs.” or “Don’t you know it’s fake?” So on and so on. Time and time again you hear it until, to be perfectly honest, there are few things that you would rather be doing than to listen to it time and time again.

Usually we just stand there and take it like it’s no big deal. This is the life that we have chosen after all.

Do you want to know what the worst part is? The absolute thing that makes you wish you would die? It’s that you know it’s special, that it’s art. But the people you trust to defend the thing you love are morons, loud and obnoxious to the point where you wish that they would shut up some more.

Sometimes, just when you think it can’t happen, you get the guy who can speak for your sport. And today, after the jump, you get that guy. “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush is the patriarch of Chikara, one of the last truly innovative promotions that exist. Also he’s competed on 4 continents, wrestled some of the true legends of the sport, and trains the next generation of performers at his Wrestle Factory.

Is it the 1999 Tennessee Titans Motor City Miracle or Villanova’s April Fool’s Miracle in 1985? How about the 2007 New England Patriots attempt to join the 1972 Dolphins as undefeated champions or UNLV’s quest in 1991 for an undefeated National Championship season?

What does it for you, the NFL Playoffs in January & February or the Madness in March?

The Supplements Open Thread

Posted in blog roll, Bloggers, Blogroll, blogrolll on January 25th, 2010 by Okori Wadsworth

A whole bunch of pills. Which one is right for you?

Any question you might have about supplements I will try my best to answer. Keep in mind I’m not a doctor, so you should consult your physician (or KevDog) before starting any of these.

Other than that, fire away.

Who Is The All-Time Greatest NBA Champion?

Posted in 1983 Philadelphia 76ers, 1985 Los Angeles Lakers, 1986 Boston Celtics, 1989 Detroit Pistons, 1996 Chicago Bulls, Bad Boys, blog roll, Blogroll, blogrolll, Greatest NBA Champion, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen on May 19th, 2008 by Ron Glover


1983 Champs…vastly underrated

If the Boston Celtics win the NBA Championship in June, the team of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett will be considered one of the greatest title teams ever assembled.

With that thought in mind; who do you consider the Greatest NBA Championship Team in your lifetime. Is it the 1996 Chicago Bulls who went 72-10 or was it the 1986 Boston Celtics, the 1985 Lakers or the 1989 Bad Boys of Detroit. Maybe it was my favorite the 1983 Philadelphia 76ers.

Let the debate begin…

(sharkspages.com)Calgary Flames Jarome Iginla

Calgary Flames superstar right winger Jarome Arthur-Leigh Adekunle Tig Junior Elvis Iginla is the shining light in a sport that has literally known no Darkness. To many Blacks in the United States the sport of hockey falls in the same category as NASCAR or any sport that we have yet to dominate. Iginla is hockey’s first true dominant Black player since Edmonton Oilers goalie Grant Fuhr.

And at his current pace he isn’t done spreading his story or dominance throughout the NHL.

This is for you Michelle!

Two weeks ago the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to use their 11 draft picks to catapult themselves back to the top of the NFC. After weeks of speculation Andy Reid and Co. had the chips available to land a true #1 receiver in the form of Chad Johnson, Roy Williams or Anquan Boldin didn’t they?

TBR’s First Annual 2008 NFL Mock Draft (Pick 29-31)

Posted in 2008 NFL Draft, Ali Highsmith, blog roll, Blogroll, Green Bay Packers, Jerrod Mayo, LSU, Mario Manningham, Michigan, New York Giants, NFL Draft, NFL Mock Drafts on April 23rd, 2008 by Ron Glover

Today we wrap up our First Annual NFL Mock Draft and I must say I’ve had a blast. I’m sure the first round won’t pan out like this; with Miami signing #1 pick OT Jake Long yesterday I’m already in the hole. How about the Vikings giving up a first rounder to the Chiefs and meeting the $30 million in guaranteed money for DE Jared Allen. I’m far from a draft expert and from what I seen and heard so are a lot of others. I just wanted to add something to the site and since everyone and their mother does a mock draft, why not us.

We’ll wrap it up today with San Francisco, Green Bay and the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants, so let get things going.

The 2008 NFL Draft is once again approaching and for the second time in three years, there isn’t a consensus #1 pick. This year the Miami Dolphins hold the first choice after finishing the 2007 campaign with a 1-15 mark. The ‘Fins are in need of help just about everywhere starting at quarterback. With the future of defensive end Jason Taylor up in the air, incoming GM Bill Parcells has his work cut out for him.

For the next 12 days leading up to the Draft, yours truly will pick the first round according to team needs and potential. The Miami Dolphins are on the clock…
