Ignorance is a Golden State of Bliss
Silence is Golden…except for MVP Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry. Saturday, when asked about Curry’s MVP status, LeBron James said, ”I think sometimes the word ‘valuable’ or best player of the year, you can have different results. You know, that’s not taking anything from anyone that’s ever won the award”. (Someone’s bitter, he placed 3rd in this year’s MVP votes). But it doesn’t stop there boys and girls. It wouldn’t be the NBA without drama. Stephen Curry’s response: “I’ve gotten really good at ignoring people”. Whoa. You’re ignoring the great King James by responding to him? Talk about MIND GAMES. No, seriously, replying to his comments is the complete opposite of ignoring him. If you’re a superstar, there’s an easy response to this (brace yourselves Millennials, this is Old English): “No comment”. “I’m ignoring you” is a pretty weak comeback, anyway. It’s the equivalent of “LALALALALA I can’t hear you over the awesome sound of my MVP Award”. Otherwise, if you can’t take the Heat (or the Cavaliers, in this case), get out of the oven.
It was quite the slugfest (the wrong kind) between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night. The biggest hit of the night was on the past homerun champ, Jose Bautista. Rougned Odor, who has 246 career hits (he bats left, and has a mean right-hook), recorded a 247th hit to Bautista’s face, after a hard slide by Bautista angered Odor. Odor wasn’t reachable for comment after the game, seeing as he was on the phone with Jonathon Papelbon, who called to congratulate him on an amazing hit.
Diamonds Are Forever; NFL Careers Are Not
In the latest chapter of the Johnny Football saga, Mr. Manziel showcases yet another bad life choice (his first one was signing with Cleveland Browns). Most people spend $20,000 on a new car. A down payment on a house. A college education (okay, that’s a real joke, try $50,000). Not Johnny Manziel. Only one thing is worth $20K to him…24 Karats. That’s right, a diamond…grill. “Oh, for his car?” No. It’s worse. For his teeth.
(I need a minute.)
If I’m going to pay $20,000 for a grill, it had better be one that cooks 15 steaks and produces a Dallas cheerleader to plate them, serve them to me, cut them up for me, and feed them to me (self-cleaning would be nice too, but I digress). But hey, what do I know? I’m no superstar quarterback. It’s your money, do what you want with it. Who knows, this could be the thing to bring the shine back to his career!
…and that’s My Three Cents.
