The TRUTH about Sports

A Sight for Sore Eyes

SC fans won’t be seeing this image this weekend for the season opener. “It’s not likely he will be ready to go this week,” said head coach Pete Carroll after practice Monday. Sidelined with a sprained shoulder, Washington is not expected to play this week, in hopes of his return against Nebraska on Sept. 8th. With the loss of Moody, who recenlty transfered to Florida, and now Washington, USC has lost 2 of its 3 dominant RBs from last year. SC fans worried? I don’t think so. SC has plenty of depth at the RB position, inlcuding C.J. Gable who rushed for 434 yds and 4 tds in the ’04 season-he can carry the load. Stafon Johnson, Allen Bradford, and Broderick Green will all share playing time at the position. Highly touted freshman phenom Joe McKnight is what the country is waiting to see. This guy’s supposed to be an unstoppable monster. I hope Idaho’s not counting out the running game. BEAT THE VANDALS!!!

And 1

So we have our first casualty of the And 1 Mix Tape Tour Curse. Mr. Rafer Alston. Rafer seems to have lost his cool and gone off and stabbed someone. Maybe the guy said that he wasn’t as good as Escalade, or that the Professor has better handles, I don’t know, but I do know it’s another incident of a millionaire athlete being at the wrong place at the wrong time. When will they learn? Rafer was already hanging by a thread in the NBA, there isn’t really a high demand out there for guards that can’t shoot and don’t pass, no offense to Smush Parker, Shaun Livingston, and Steve Francis. On August 28th, Alston was arrested for slashing someone’s neck in a nightclub. At this point, nothing these athletes do suprises me, however, I am a little curious as to why Alston had a shank on him? Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope this one turns out okay, we wouldn’t want this to have any negative affects towards the other And 1 stars trying to make the NBA. In my humble opinion, Helicopter and Hot Sauce were always better than our dear friend Rafer “Skip 2 My Lou” Alston, but that’s just me.

The Fall Classic

Fall is just around the corner which usually means the start of the NFL season and the MLB playoffs, however it seems no ones seems to care about the latter. Is it just me, or has this been the most uneventful baseball season in years, and yes I know that Barry Bonds broke the all time home run record….ho hum. Here in Los Angeles, both the Dodgers and Angels are in the playoff picture and the only thing people seem to care about is the start of USC football. After the past few dreadful World Series matchups, see Tigers/Cardinals, Astros/White Sox, MLB needs some excitement. As much as Bud Selig tries to downplay the steroids scandal, it seems to be the only thing keeping baseball on the minds of the public. I challenge anyone to build some excitement towards the upcoming playoffs. So if I’m Bud Selig, I can’t wait for the next Jose Conseco book to come out. At least it’ll get people talking about our national pastime again.

Vick Apologizes, "I WILL REDEEM MYSELF!"

Michael Vick apologizes Monday morning after pleading guilty in federal court. Mr. I’m sorry, a.k.a. I will redeem myself after lying to my boss, the commissioner, my teammates, the fans and those poor dogs he strangled, electrocuted and hung. Talk about an insincere apology. At least Kobe cried.

Does this look like someone who is sorry for what he did or sorry for being caught? Only a face a mother could love or man’s best friend. Well at least a mother. How sad that someone with that much money and talent (did someone say overrated) pissed it all away. He should be banned from the league for life! Enjoy the penn, say hi to the fellas.
