With respect given to Pros vs. Joes, the king of sports reality programming is clearly 24/7, and a major reason is the Mayweather fam.  We’ve watched them consume the hood drink of choice (Kool-aid stand up!), we’ve been through the multitude of family feuds. 

His appearance on ESPN only cemented his 24/7 status.  Honestly, it should be 24/Mayweather b/c the other ones were kinda lame.  Now he comes back for his throne (on the latest installment and in the ring against Marquez).  We knew that Mayweather was comin back…only if the money was right.  Why waste time fightin scrubs without a payday to prove what everyone already knew? 

Assuming that he gets past Marquez, Mayweather-Pacquiao 24/7 will be bananas.  *Fingers crossed*

The Vick-storm

Posted: May 20, 2009 in NFL, sports opinion

I won’t delve too deep into the Vick’s reinstatement prospects. I will say this whole “the NFL’s a privilege” business kinda irks me. Instead of me explaining why, I will tell you to read this.

A snippet to whet your appetite. Stank-0 I think we have a candidate for the blogroll.

This is the stupidest saying in all of sports, that the chance to make millions playing a game is a privilege. Really? Nothing is earned here? You mean to tell me the time from when these guys are in grade school, working almost year round on their respective sport’s skills and training their bodies, that they haven’t EARNED their spot in pro sports? Really?

I don’t think I could have said it any better myself. Happy reading!
