Possible NBA Labor Negotiators


Ever since the Casey Anthony trial has concluded, I have been trying to get my legal fix elsewhere. Obviously, I am following the NFL negotiations, and the Roger Clemens debacle resulted in a mistrial. Since I have read all of the John Grisham thrillers, I am of sound legal mind and I am an expert on all things regarding the law. Therefore, I will provide some possible candidates on negotiators for the upcoming NBA discussions.

With these people, the league could expedite the process and avoid last minute posturing around Halloween.

VOTE NOW! The Sports Bank Anti-Bracket Ty Cobb Regional Finals

The Ty Cobb Regional featured some stiff competition among losers. Brett Favre, Kurt Rambis, Harvey Updyke, Charlie Sheen and David Kahn highlighted the regional’s biggest failures. Much like the NCAA Tournament, the first two rounds featured some epic upsets and some orgasmic finales that would have made Gus Johnson keel over into a giant puddle of awesome-sauce.

Just when America was extremely tired of hearing the words “tiger blood” and “#winning,” well if you don’t live a cave you’re probably sick of those words, Charlie Sheen re-enters the national consciousness. And who else but Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, would be crazy enough to compare himself to Sheen?

Charlie Sheen Media Meltdown Continues (Video)

Charlie Sheen as Ricky Vaughn in "Major League"

What’s really funny about Charlie Sheen’s media persona is how many times he actually plays himself in television and film. Take for instance his character in the now shut down CBS series “Two and a half men.” And in both of his baseball movies, he played a scumbag degenerate; Hap Felsch in “Eight Men Out,” Ricky Wild Thing Vaughn in “Major League.”

In other words, he often doesn’t take on very challenging roles. But he did quote NBA legend Allen Iverson’s “PRACTICE” rant, and he keeps on re-purposing and recycling his own gibberish as he keeps doing the talk show circuit.

Aside from Christina Aguilera, Sheen is #1 on the trending trainwreck/downward spiral index right now.

Cubs Ramblings to Report as Pitchers and Catchers Report Soon

I am a rambling, rambling, rambling man.

As you can tell by the headline, it is time to ramble. Let the thoughts flow, let it all hang out, let it go.

So let’s do this. Ramble on!

• Picking up where I left off last week, the Groundhog says Spring is near. I think Punxsutawney Phil must have not seen the 24 inches of freaking snow in Chicago.

• So, the Cubs are giving good ole Lou Montanez another shot. The only person has been given more “second chances” than him is Charlie Sheen.

• I want to take Matt Garza and Carlos Zambrano out for drinks, get them liquored up and then start a fight …

• No, I don’t really want to do that.

• Okay, yes, I totally want that to happen.

• Are the Brewers really going to win the NL Central? Really? Really?
