Rajon Rondo Instagram Implosion Wasn’t the Chicago Bulls Death Knell After All

rajon rondo

The 2016-17 Chicago Bulls are probably the first team in NBA history to endure a total meltdown on Instagram, and later emerge stronger from it. Back on January 26th, Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo made comments that at the time seemed like they would effectively seal his exit from club.

Rondo went thermonuclear on his official Instagram account, making comments in response to Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade that, back then, seemed utterly impossible to walk back.

Sure, we all saw the friction with Rondo coming before the season began, given his past history, but no one really expected a scorched Earth action like what occurred that day.

Anthony Martial Should Emulate Marcus Rashford, Jose Mourinho Says

anthony-martial

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has suffered a proverbial “sophomore slump” at Old Trafford this season. The 2015 summer transfer window deadline day signing turned heads when he arrived due to his massive transfer fee, but immediately lived up to the hype with an amazing start.

He cooled off from there, but still ended up being one of United’s best, if not the best outfield player last season. Year two has been extremely disappointing for the young France scorer. Under new management, he has struggled to find his place, with playing time and production dipping tremendously.

It’s the second leg of Manchester United’s Europa League tie on Thursday night when the Red Devils face Anderlecht in the quarter-final round.

Aaron Hernandez Dead from Apparent Suicide; Twitter Users Make Really Bad Jokes

aaron-hernandez-patriots

Aaron Hernandez was an awful human being; there’s really no disputing that.

Anyone who deliberately takes another person’s life is truly beyond the pale of description. Repugnant, deplorable, immoral, monstrous, disgusting….choose your words but at the end of the day these are still just words and they can never truly articulate the atrocity that is intentionally taking another human being’s life from them.

Projected Man United Starting XI vs Anderlecht (Europa League)

It’s the Europa League, otherwise known as the Champions League consolation bracket. Or the junior varsity tournament if you will. However, it also might be the best shot that Manchester United have of getting back into Europe next year, so they have to take this very seriously.

Manager Jose Mourinho needs a result here in the quarter-finals, in order to advance to the semi-final round.

The Red Devils take on Anderlecht tomorrow night in the home leg of their UEL tie, having drawn last week in a match where just couldn’t close. United let a potential 1-0 win slip away in the final minutes, and they had to settle for a 1-1 draw in Brussels.

cubs

The party itself was a transcendent bacchanal, but now the hangover has set in. We had a transcendent euphoria of a time, but now the huge bill is due and the nausea and headaches are severe. It doesn’t mean we have any regrets at all about what we experienced, but it does make us wonder where we go from here.

The Chicago Cubs winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years was the last Great American Sports News Story (Capitalization Intentional). Everything else that’s happened since seems inconsequential by comparison.
