Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls claimed victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday night and topped off what has been a rocky start for Chi-city in the early stages of the NBA season.

Baseball lost a titan and true pioneer of the game this week with the death of Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra. No I’m not talking about the lovable bear. The legendary Yankee won a whopping 10 World Series for the prestigious New York Yankees and really made the franchise the stable powerhouse that it is alongside Joe DiMaggio.

The Denver Broncos were sent galloping out of the Super Bowl and into the offseason. What did the Seattle Seahawks do to make a bunch of grown men look like absolute punks? I think I might have an idea, but the past is the past and no one wants redemption more than Peyton Manning. The greatest quarterback on Earth will be gunning for another trip back to the big game but will they even make it out of the West?
My Hawks never get any love and once again they manage to have a quiet little off-season without making the splash that Chicago, Cleveland and New York did besides the mistake of letting Louis Williams go. That is why I’m proud to say that Atlanta Hawks’ starting power forward Paul Millsap has been invited to workout for Team USA. Continue reading Sappy Love
Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James had all of basketball in the palm of their hands in this summer’s free agency.
