When an athlete with a name unique to a pop culture reference comes around, often times our inner 8-year old comes out. Well, my inner 21-year old mixed with my 8-year old has decided that it would be fun to see what area codes Houston Astros outfielder LJ Hoes has been to this year.

At the 6:20 mark of overtime, Patrick Marleau’s backhander found the back of the net for the San Jose Sharks, and now they take a 3-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Quarter Finals.

As Marleau skated out from the corner and cut in towards the net, he just shoveled the puck on net and luckily the puck deflected off of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, and past goaltender Jonathan Quick.

We are two weeks away from Extreme Rules and the card is starting to shape up. It’s nice to see WWE move away from the formula of the pay-per-view, ahem, special event, after Wrestlemania being a bunch of Wrestlemania rematches. This definitely isn’t the case apart from Cena and Wyatt. Tonight was a solid Raw that advanced storylines and had some solid matches.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Memphis Grizzlies

 

With the Oklahoma City Thunder down 5 vs the Memphis Grizzlies, Kevin Durant made the most ridiculous shot in recent memory.  On a broken play, Russell Westbrook dished the ball to a falling Kevin Durant in the corner who made the 3 pointer and the foul shot to bring OKC within 1.  Check out the shot after the jump Read the rest of this entry »

Oh, Game of Thrones, you sly dog. The 4th episode of the third season was true to it’s title from beginning to end. In the first scene, of the episode, Lord Baelish (MAKING HIS SEASON DEBUT AND SCORING 26 OFF THE BENCH), snatches the chain from Sansa’s neck (that’s a fight, bro), and proceeds to break the one of the jewels on it to prove its fakeness. At the end of the episode, Danny Targaryen looks to free the slaves of Mereen from there chains. Tyrion is chained in the dungeon. You see the chains of honor that bound the Starks in Arya start to break while the chain that binds Sam to Gilly start to erode. The death of King Joffrey has had a profound effect on most of the characters in this episode and everyone is either trying to break free, free someone, or attach themselves to someone or something.  Read the rest of this entry »

BewersPiratesBrawl

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers got into baseball’s first brawl of 2014.  Carlos Gomez of the Brewers smoked a shot off of Pirates starter Gerrit Cole and admired it a little too much for Cole’s liking. Especially because the ball didn’t go out.  Cole made his way towards third base and all hell broke loose.  H/T to @KennedyMLB for the GIFs

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin may have been a little frustrated after his Clippers lost to the Golden State Warriors 109-105 on Saturday night. After Griffin fouled out of the game, he walked over to the jumbo-tron where the foul was being replayed. In disgust, Griffin raised his hands in the air in disbelief of the foul. At the time Blake Griffin also has a cup of water in his hand and doused the fan behind him. The fan happened to be wearing a Warriors shirt. Griffin said it was an accident if he did in fact slip water on the fan behind him. You be the judge. Accident or on purpose?

76ers

Philadelphia 76ers 2013-2014 season has been a struggle. The 76ers only managed to win 19 games, which was the 2nd worst record in all of the NBA. In addition to that, their 63 loss season consisted of a 26 game losing streak.
