After going 12-4 last week, things get a little tougher in week 3. One game that has my interest is Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay. Both teams are 2-0, which we expected  from the Steelers, but the Bucs are reminding many of the upstart Bucs that blossomed under Tony Dungy. A young vibrant defense and a unheralded leader in quarterback Josh Freeman has things looking up in Tampa.

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?

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?

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…

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?

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…

What Is Your Cause?

Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos

I was speaking to someone in regards to the political situation in China and how it may effect the Olympic Games this summer. From what I understand about the situation, Hillary Clinton has proposed that American athletes boycott the Games entirely. We also discussed the 1968 Mexico City Games, where Tommie Smith and John Carlos brought the atrocities of the Civil Rights Movement in America to a world stage giving us a lasting image in history.

From there I was asked, “What has happened to the social and politically conscious athlete? Why do today’s American athletes leave these things up to politicians, why is everyone afraid to take a stand?” Later that night I thought in terms of the Black Athlete and asked the same question.

New addition to TSF fam. I hope you enjoy the talented Co Co on the site. ‘Bout time a sista represented 😉

She’ll post a few words about herself tomorrow.

Let’s Get It!


Friday, March 14th started out like any other day for me. I got out of bed after about four hours of sleep which is all my body will allow me to get at any given time. I logged on to the internet, checked my four email accounts and began visiting some of my favorite websites to see what some of my favorite writers were yapping about. After a couple of hours of internet surfing, I decided it was time that I get on with my day. I had a few errands to run before I had to head down to the Highlight Factory b.k.a. Philips Arena where the Hawks were taking on the Los Angeles Clippers.

The sudden revival of basketball in the city of Boston has taken many of it’s fans back to the glory days -when their beloved Celtics were the class of the NBA. Personally, it takes me back to a time where I hated to see the Sixers’ arch rivals from the north coming, whether it was in mid-season or the playoffs. As my knowledge of sports has grown, so has my respect for the adversaries of my youth; Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish.  Respect for the Dallas Cowboys? That day is still afar off.

Celtics coach K.C. Jones was the driving force behind the Celtics last two title teams. In researching Jones’ career, I discovered that he was a groundbreaking player in college, and played an intergral role on eight Celtics’ title teams before winning two more as a coach. To my embarrassment I also discovered that I should have been more focused on the color and not the colors.

Yesterday, I participated in TNT’s 2008 NBA All Star Game teleconference. Beat writers and columnists from across the nation questioned the participants below on NBA All Star Weekend as well as current happenings in the NBA. I became associated with TNT after being asked to moderate their panel on New Media in July during the annual NABJ conference in Vegas.

In this teleconference, I get great responses from some of the questions I asked the fellas.
