Clemens walks free, NFL/ NFLPA making progress

In my last article, I talked about how slow sports are these days. With no NFL free agency and no NBA news at all, the only major news is baseball (which isn’t a bad sport, it’s just in the middle of the season so it’s not as exciting as October). Obviously, sports such as golf, NASCAR, and tennis are year-round; however they don’t draw in the pure fan base that football, basketball, OR baseball do. Who’s gonna watch some 80 cars circling a track for 500 miles (200 laps)? Whenever I watch (once a year, the prostegious Daytona 500), I watch the last 5 laps..I know the other 195 laps are important as well, but it’s just too boring. That’s like watching football when 2 teams ONLY run the ball. No big plays, once in a while a 30 yard gain, but otherwise 2 and 3 yard gains…

With golf, it’s sorta different. Pro golf is boring to me too, but at least there’s exciting putts once in a while. Tiger Woods WAS a joy to watch, during his seemingly unstoppable run where he like never was out of the Top 3 in any tourney. Now Rory Mcllroy is the hot shit, but can he keep it that way? He’s real young, so he has time to faulter, as well as time to shine.

Tennis is the HARDEST sport i’ve ever played, to be brutally honest. So I kinda have some respect for those athletes, although I don’t like listening to them grunting like they’re having sex. But when Anna Kournikova is grunting, my oh my I’m the first one to rush to the TV.

Clemens walks free

Let’s get down to business now. Yesterday, Roger Clemens’ case was declared a mistrial after prosecutors failed to prove that the former all-star committed perjury. If I remember correctly from middle school, he cannot be tried again because of the “double jeopardy” rule in the U.S Constitution. It’s obvious he did commit perjury. Here’s  my thing with these cases: why would the defendant be on trial if he didn’t commit the crime. Why would the prosecutors go thought so much trouble to put him in jail if they weren’t 100% sure he commited the crime? Tell me what you think of this in the comments section. I know my opinion is a bit harsh, so tell me also where you stand on that.

Clemens is free after a judge declared a mistrial in his perjury case.

NFL/NFLPA making progress

“A source with knowledge of the NFL talks told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio on Thursday night that the negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement are headed toward a settlement” (Cred ESPN.com). That’s great news for us NFL fans, as it looks like a season WILL happen. I’ve recently predicted that the new CBA will be signed in the month of July, so they’ve got 15 more days or so for my prediction to be correct.

  1. There is a hearing on Sept. 2, to decide whether there will be a new trial or not.

  2. I’m glad Clemens got off I’m glad the NFL is about to have a new deal and I’m glad baseball is heading toward that stretch run cuzz that’s when its most exciting

  3. I wish I can say that I watch NASCAR, but I don’t except for the big races like the Daytona 500, I’m like you, I sometimes watch the last 5 laps, I don’t see the reason to watch all the other laps when it comes down to the last 5. I currently live outside of the USA, so I’ve gotten into F1 racing, which I occasionally post about, as well as cricket, and they’re two new sports I love. The reason I like F1 better than NASCAR is that it’s shorter, with the laps around 50-70 per race. The races are about 2 hours long, so it’s shorter, and I like it. I’m a multi-multi-sport fan, so I love golf and tennis as well, I’m enjoying the Open Championship. How annoying is it that now, after all this, we aren’t even sure if Roger Clemens is guilty? Wow, wonder what Brian McNamee is thinking right now, that’s ridiculous. HOORAY! FOOTBALL!
