R.I.P. Anthony Mason

February 28, 2015 by

Anthony Mason, a 13 year NBA veteran, has died due to complications of congestive heart failure. He spent his career playing for the New York Knicks, Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks. However, as a man that bleeds orange and blue, I’ll always remember him as being a key cog for the Knicks during many of their playoff runs in the early to mid 90’s.  Read the rest of this entry »

dyinglight

 

I logged about 8 hours on Dying Light, started over, and logged another 3 hours.  I’m not an expert on the game by any means, but I’ve figured out a few things that made me want to go back and do it “right” the 2nd time around.  If you’ve started the game and are finding it a bit difficult, hopefully there’s something in this article that’ll help you out.  If you have any info of your own that I didn’t cover, drop it in the comments section, I’ll add it, and give you props.

There are plenty of sports out there with binary outcomes, where one of two things has to happen. They’re generally the best choices for those who enjoy a punt on their chosen sport and have a deep knowledge of it. So, here’s why…

It’s all about value. Simply put, the value principle works for the house in a casino due to the margin. This is the green zero in roulette or the banker’s “pay” at blackjack etc. That is so, over a long enough period of time, the house will win out. Similarly, if you were ever given odds of an absolute smidgen better than even money on the fair toss of a coin, you would be a fool not to take the bet every time you were offered it. Even if you lost the first six tosses, you would always come out on top if you played it long enough.

Selection Sunday is three weeks away and I have to admit, I have not watched as much college basketball this year as I would have liked. Come March 15, the entire sports world will be a buzz about which teams made the tournament, and which teams bubbles’ burst.

Luckily for those teams who will find themselves on the outside looking in, they still have three weeks to make their dreams come true. No, I am not talking about going to Disney World which teams can do whether they make this years NCAA Tournament or not.

DeAndreJordanDunkFace

 

DeAndre Jordan went for immortality tonight.  He failed, but it was still awesome.  In what would have been the greatest slam dunk in the history of basketball (NBA, NCAA, Nerf), Jordan attempted to dunk over the San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan, and when I say dunk over I mean jump over completely a-la Vince Carter over Frederic Weis.  Check out the Vine after the jump:

"You mean I have to move again?"

“You mean I have to move again?”

Lost in the craziness of the trade deadline today, Point guard Ramon Sessions was traded to the Washington Wizards for old man Andre Miller.

He will be playing for his 7th different team.

That might not seem too crazy, until you realize this is only Sessions’ 9th season in the NBA.

I had to create a map in order to visualize his travels. You can view it after the jump.

A few weeks ago, screenshots of a chick on Tinder bragging about her relations with Giants WR Odell Beckham JR went viral.  It seems like young ladies letting their potential Tinder suitors know which NFL Wide Receivers they’ve bedded is all the rage now, as a New England woman took a snapchat photo of a passed out Patriots WR Julian Edelman and used it as her Tinder photo. Check out the photo in question and a few other photos of random Total Sports “Babe” (we’re using the term loosely) Sabrina Dudish: Read the rest of this entry »
