Thanksgiving Weekend in Sports

So much to write about, so much stuff

– The Thanksgiving games were the opposite of what we normally get. The Lions won a big game for them, the Eagles – Cowboys matchup wasn’t even close, and Seattle looked like the Super Bowl champions in San Francisco. Colin Kaepernick looks like a has-been, the Cowboys are running out excuses and the Bears … well, the Bears are in hibernation.

– The Lakers flat out suck, they are the worst team in the Western Conference. Last night (Friday), they lost to the Timberwolves in Los Angeles. ESPN isn’t getting tired of them. We heard comments from Kobe and coach Byron Scott during SportsCenter, pretty much smashing the team for sucking. LOL. Even when they lose, they get press.

– Did you see UCLA falling apart against Stanford? Stanford’s a different cat in the Pac-12–which is, by the way, the best conference in college football. Arizona defeated Arizona State today to win the Pac-12 South and the right to meet the Ducks for the Pac-12 title. Don’t sleep on the Wildcats, they have given the Ducks lots of problems of late. Especially Marcus Mariotta.

– Michigan plays Ohio State today, while Florida plays Florida State. Look for the first game to become an Ohio State beatdown of Michigan, while Florida has the potential to take down Florida State. Florida is playing much better of late. Alabama looks to avenge … seriously avenge … their loss in the Iron Bowl last year to Auburn.

– Ray Rice is reinstated. I wonder if any team will take a chance at embarrassing commissioner Goodell and signing Rice. BSP believes Rice will never play another NFL down as a result of this successful challenge. By the way, Janay Rice wrote a piece on espn.com.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
