Miami Heat Do The Harlem Shake

February 28, 2013 by

Miami Heat Harlem Shake

You knew it was bound to happen.  King James and the Miami Heat put out their own Harlem Shake video today.  I know these are starting (if not already) to get old, but yet they are still being made.  On a scale of how good-looking Sam Cassell is to how much Chris Bosh actually looks like a dinosaur, I’ll give this one an Anthony Mason hair cut.

Most of the guys are in their “persona”.  King James is, well, a king.  Chris Bosh is in that damn cowboy motif for some reason. “Birdman”  Chris Andersen is of course, in a bird costume.  But I think the best costume is Mario Chalmers as Super Mario.  I can’t really make out who the bear is, but I’m assuming it’s Dwayne Wade, but I could be wrong.

Alex Ovechkin

Tonight during the second intermission of the Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers game, resident knucklehead Mike Milbury, went on an epic rant about Alex Ovechkin.  As a life long New York Islanders fan, I have nothing but hate for this man.  But for once, he made the right move.  Exposing Ovechkin for the player he has become.

Ovechkin has become an extremely lazy player and is morphing into the Randy Moss of the NHL.

During his rant, Milbury drops this beauty: “A blind pass…eight-year-olds don’t do this in the offensive zone!”

Check out the video after the jump.

Below is a press release from NASCAR:

Jeremy Clements, a driver in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body’s Code of Conduct.

On Feb. 23 at Daytona International Speedway, Clements was found to have violated Sections 7-5 (NASCAR’s Code of Conduct) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing).

During the course of an interview, Jeremy Clements made an intolerable and insensitive remark,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “NASCAR has a Code of Conduct that’s explicitly spelled out in the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book. We fully expect our entire industry to adhere to that Code.”
As of Wednesday night, nothing has been said as far as what Clements has said.
Clements finished the Drive for COPD 300 from Daytona International Speedway last weekend in 33rd place after dropping out early due to an oil line issue. Clements currently drives for his own team and Jeremy Clements Racing has not issued a statement regarding a replacement driver for this weekend’s Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.  Read the rest of this entry »

Standing 6-foot-1, and weighing 215 lbs, Dylan Moses has amazing size for his age. Couple that with the fact that he runs a 4.45 40-yard dash (Insert Manti Te’o slow 40 time joke here), and you can understand why college coaches are drooling over this 14 year old out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

It is well known that the 2013 draft is not full of top of the line talent. There is no Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III at the QB position, there are no can’t miss RB prospects like Trent Richardson or Doug Martin, and every defensive player has at least one major concern. That being said, I think the 2013 NFL draft is very deep, and see some serious value in the later rounds. I am going to write a few of these pieces leading up to the draft, showcasing some guys who I think have good potential to be draft day steal.

Checkers or Wreckers.

This is the one race on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule where no fan is able to tell you who finished second and on Tuesday, NASCAR announced a new series of rules to the annual All-Star Race. The rules, according to the press release, will add emphasis on finishing well in each of the segments that airs Saturday, May 18th from Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The race will still be broken into four 20 lap segments and a final 10 lap segment, but instead of being based on the finishing order of the fourth segment or how the driver comes off pit road between segments, the final 10 laps will be determined by the driver’s average finish in the first four segments.

When it rains, it pours for Manti Te’o. Seriously, is there anyone in the world who is having a worse couple of months than this guy? He has gone from the Heisman runner up, to the butt of every sports related joke, and now sliding down draft boards all over the NFL.

Now that the NFL Scouting Combine is complete, we have a little bit better of an idea of who the elite prospects in this years’ draft. There has been a lot of movement since my first Big Board, which you can see here, and there will sure to be more before the big day on April 27th.

We all know about how Bill Russell is one of the greatest winners in all of sports with 11 championships during his 13 year career. Those 11 rings ties Henri Richard in the NHL for the most championships won by a single player in any North American sport. We also know how much of an undercover bad ass he was off the court considering the fact that he used to take Wilt Chamberlain out for dinner before games in order to soften him up. He was the first black head coach in any North American sport, a social activist, and there’s a very good chance that he could be God. But did you also know that Bill Russell was also Vince Carter from the year 2000. Read the rest of this entry »
