The NBA playoffs...A time where we make predictions, and projections on who is going to make it to the Finals. At least, that is what the NBA playoffs used to be. Now, it is about how well the Warriors dominate to get to the Finals, and if there is a slim chance that the Cavaliers do not make it.
Some loved him, others hated him, most made snarky remarks about his durability, and clutch-ability. Tony Romo was one of the most teased quarterbacks in recent history. He was in the league for 14 seasons, and has decided to hang up the number 9 jersey to pursue a career in the studio.
Many times when a final or championship comes around in the world of sports, a "David v. Goliath" matchup is usually present or discussed. However, even if there is no such matchup, a championship is still discussed or portrayed as "The powerhouse v. the underdog". In the NCAAM championship, that portrayal is not true.
March is ending, and the beginning of April is right around the corner. The sports world never slows down, with NCAA being in full throttle, but the NBA and the NFL have been making the headlines also. Are we seeing history being made in the NBA? Is Richard Sherman about to get a new home? Who knows, but that is what was in the headlines this week in the world of sports.
March Madness is impossible to predict, and this year has not changed a bit. Early, I wrote about there being no clear number one this year in March Madness, and about how every team is vulnerable to loss. And that was all, but proven when one of the top seeds is now eliminated. Villanova, who won the Tournament last year, lost to Wisconsin.
The free agency in the National Football League has made a lot of stunning, and interesting moves. This has been a very active year, with several big names signing, and trades conspiring, it is another great NFL free agency offseason, and this is just some of the most recent moves that teams have made.
Today is sports Sunday. This is when we usually binge-watch Sports-Center, various games, and of course, sports rumors. We also react to headlines, whether it is happy, or sad, or maybe in surprising. Neverless, that is why we are here today.
March Madness is some sports fans holiday, for others, it is a chance to test their statistical skills. Most of the time, there is a team that reaches an expectation of winning the Final. However, this season, every team is seen as vulnerable. Gonzaga lost its last game of the season, Kansas lost to TCU in the Big 12 Playoffs, Villanova has had devastating losses, and UCLA lost to Arizona. Is there no clear frontrunner?
Some people like him, so do not. I am closer to the "like" side myself, but does Tebow, the sometimes controversial player, make it to the majors? Well, that is the million-dollar question, and for many, the answer would be no. However, is their any glimmer of chance, and sliver of hope? There is always hope, and Tim Tebow definitely is going to play a part with the Mets, maybe in ways that are a little different then usual.
The Golden State Warriors has been struck with a dose of reality. They are not the same team without Kevin Durant. Some say that it is only a matter of time until they get their rhythm back. Others say that it is a gapping hole, and that it will not be easy to fill. The Warriors cannot completely lose their touch, since they still have important players still on the field, but losing an all-star is definitely a huge issue, and will another team take advantage of the situation?
