Quest for G


The Hangover 1.18.09

So we come into this new week wondering a few things, how are the Cardinals the NFC Champions and what happened to Joe Flacco? The Cardinals punched their ticket this afternoon with a convincing 32-25 Win over Philadelphia today in the NFC Championship game. Larry Fitzgerald today cemented himself as one of the most dynamic receivers in the NFL with his game-changing performance of 9 catches for 152 yards and 3 Touchdowns. Fitzgerald today proved that he alone could lead the Cardinals to yet another victory, and is in position to do so again next week should he put up another performance like the one today. In the other Championship game, the Steelers made Joe Flacco show his experience by forcing 3 interceptions, with one being returned for a touchdown along with his 13-30 passing for only 141 yards. Hey Joe, next time change your diaper before you go to the playoffs because today you really stunk it up. The Steelers won the game 23-14 and will be going to their 2nd super bowl in 4 years. So there we have it, 2 weeks from today Super Bowl XLIII with the Arizona Cardinals matching up against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hmm, I can’t help but notice this has the feel of the World Series. One team nobody expected to be there opposing an opponent who most expected to get there. Well unlike baseball, I’m picking the upset. Cardinals should take this one, but not by much giving them their first Super Bowl title in franchise history. Dang 66 years was too long.

So did anyone catch the Lebron James commercial. There had been a lot of hoopla and hype for the last few weeks about a big announcement on 1.18.09 and that we would have to brace ourselves. Well in case you didn’t catch it, here’s the video. 

Oh and maybe it’s just me, but I am getting the vibe that Peyton Manning and Lebron James are somewhat competing for the title of the most marketable athlete. I mean Lebron has that other State Farm commercial as well as his newest Nike Commercial. But, Peyton did have some very funny commercials with Mastercard. #1 #2 #3 and his very most recent #4. His appearance on Saturday Night Live was hilarious too. Check the videos here and here

In other news, the much anticipated film Notorious came out friday with much hype. Apparently this movie is a big hit with many people showing up at the box office to see it. So basically i must be one of the few hip-hop fans who isn’t in too much rush to go see this flick. Hmm, maybe i should check it out. 

On a very good note for all of us baseball fans, pitchers and catcher report to camp in just 24 days. Big news for all of us anticipating what is going to go down this season. yet there is one big problem, many big names stars such as Manny Ramirez, Ken Griffey Jr., and Adam Dunn (to name a few) are still free agents. Along with these players still being free-agents, we have the 2nd installment of the World Baseball Classic this year and from the looks of it, the USA is in trouble. They lost Alex Rodriguez to the Dominican Republic and they seem to lack a lot of punch in their lineup that they had in 2006. Hey, my guess is we shock the world and make the Semifinals, whoo hoo!

This should be a good week, I make my return to Santa Barbara and get to enjoy one last week of doing nothing before school starts! Maybe this week some of those big name free agents get signed.

Greg Oden


Scary isnt it?

Scary isn't it?



Maybe its just me, but doesn’t Greg Oden seem like the type who would scare little kids. I mean it’s already enough that he looks like he could be Lebron James’ dad, but still. Greg Oden looks like an old man, and what’s sad is he is not even old enough to purchase alcohol legally. I mean damn someone with that kind of mug, who can’t legally buy alcohol. I kinda feel sorry for the guy.

But hey, at least  he can ball it up. I mean if your a blazers fan you should grow up idolizing this guy, wait, really? I mean i respect him as a player completely, but i really just cant take him seriously. I mean have you seen his commercials? This guy tries to be funny and marketable but in reality he is just really corny. Well maybe it was just the way they came across. Who knows. But we will see how he progresses as a big man. he won’t outplay my man Bynum out there in L.A. So the Blazers won’t make it to the Western Conference royalty just yet. 

For one thing, his newest teammate Jerryd Bayless put it down last nite…
