This afternoon at an NBA Board of Governor’s meeting, not enough votes were in favor of a reform to the current draft lottery process. Even though the final vote was in favor of the new lottery system, 17-13, according to Grantland’s Zach Lowe, 23 votes were needed for the change to take place.

What it feels like to be a New York Mets fan

What it feels like to be a New York Mets fan

The New York Mets and The Walking Dead are synonymous is so many ways. The jokes could go on and on for days, but that’s not what this post is about.

It’s no secret that The Walking Dead is TSB’s favorite TV show. Hook and I have done numerous recaps, “Dead Yourself” articles, and talked about it on TSB Radio. But now that the Mets season is over and some of us still have the team on our mind, I got thinking. Who are the Mets counterparts on The Walking Dead?

NBA2K15PS4

 

I enjoyed NBA2K14 at first.  So much so that I wrote a couple of articles about it on this site trying to help others get as much free VC as possible, and succeed in MyTEAM Domination Mode.  But after playing NBA2K14 for months on end, I grew tired of it.  The MyNBA2K14 mobile app became a huge distraction in my life.  Online play was just an exploitation of glitches (I routinely made at least 1 of the opponents players foul out by halftime by taking charges).  And don’t get me started on the fluctuating prices of team packs in MyTEAM mode, and the couple hundred thousand VC I spent on Miami Heat packs only to get about 9 Chris Andersen cards and ZERO LeBron, Wade, or Bosh cards.

About 3 weeks ago, I swore off NBA2K14.  Sold it on eBay for like $16, happy to get anything out of it at all.  I had no plans to buy NBA2K15 at all, but then this happened: Read the rest of this entry »

If you’ve watched ESPN, or any sporting event at all on TV over the past few months, there’s a 99.9% chance you’ve seen commercials for FanDuel, “the leader in one-week fantasy football leagues”.  Lately they’ve been offering a “get up to $200 free on your first deposit” welcome bonus.  Sounds awesome, right?  Well, it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be.  This is the truth about FanDuel and their “welcome bonus”.

The NFL is in full swing and aren’t we all the better for it. We have already witnessed a repeat of last year’s Super Bowl, this time the Denver Broncos were beaten 26-20 by the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, instead of being humiliated again like they were in the 2014 Super Bowl final. Many see this game as a prequel to the 2015 Super Bowl.

However, analysts and pundits are giving too much weight to these two teams. We all know the NFL is far from conclusive, shocks are one-a-penny, and this year should be no different. At the beginning of last season the Seattle Seahawks were 17/2 to win the Super Bowl, proving that you do not have to be a favorite to get your hands on the Vince Lombardi trophy.

If you’ve been following TSB, you’re sure to have seen a few of my reviews for different types of kinesiology therapy tape.  Last week I had a chance to talk to Team USA member Dotsie Bausch, one of the most accomplished athletes in women’s cycling about her cycling career and SpiderTech pre-cut elastic sports tape.  Dotsie uses the tape to alleviate some of the aches and pains a cyclist experiences while training.  Check out my Q&A with Dotsie and some info about SpiderTech sports tape after the jump.

Ruining your neighborhood soon!

 

On October 5th, “Hank Is Evil: The Movie” will premiere to the world…and by the world I mean a few hundred people at the Bellmore Theatre in Bellmore, NY.  This is a film that has dominated much of the last year of my life and now it is ready to be viewed by the masses.

Conor McGregor told everyone that he was going to knock out Dustin Poirier in the first round at UFC 178. AND HE DID! McGregor caught Poirier with a questionable punch that landed behind the ear of Poirier, which stunned him, and then ended the fight with a flurry of punches. McGregor is one of the most popular fighters in the UFC, you can see why.
