James Harrison continues to play victim on Twitter

On the day the NFL upheld his one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, James Harrison once again used Twitter to prove he’s not the bad guy the league seems to think he is. Continue reading

Kobe thinks it’s “about damn time” for a true LA basketball rivalry (Video)

The Clippers moved to Los Angeles in 1984, but in that time the Clippers have made the playoffs just four times, while in that same span the Lakers have won eight titles. Sure, the Clippers finished with a better record than the Lakers in 2006, but any semblance of a rivalry after that year dissipated as quickly as the OJ Mayo-Kevin Love LA rivalry in 2008. Lauren Conrad vs. Heidi Montag was a longer, more fruitful LA rivalry than anything the Lakers and Clippers have given us. But Chris Paul forming “Lob City” with Blake Griffin brings promise to the Clippers, and Kobe Bryant said yesterday he is looking forward to a better challenge from his Staples Center co-tenants.

This week’s NFL picks

After just two incorrect picks over the two weeks prior, last week I came back down to earth, going 3-3. I’m now 35-24-3 on the year. I think the whole craziness going down in the NBA distracted me.

Watch DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin find out about the Chris Paul trade (Video)

The Clippers had some sort of sham public relations stunt Wednesday, giving fans the chance have an exciting bus ride around town with a few of the players. DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin were among the players involved in the event, and a camera filming the whole thing happened to capture Jordan and Griffin acting like a giddy couple of high school girls gossiping when they found out who will be giving them alley-oops this season. (I guess they forgot that their coach was still Vinny Del Negro and their owner was still Donald Sterling.)

At one point Jordan asks the person he’s talking to on the phone, “Who’d we give up?” Well, DeAndre, maybe you should ask Eric Gordon, who was also there part of the Clippers event. Yep. Awkward, indeed.

They break ankles in the NHL, too (Video)

If you’ve fallen a smidge behind on your NHL fandom, something called the Minnesota Wild sits atop the league standings with 44 points. So when the Wild met up last night with the second-place Blackhawks on national TV with Doc Emrick (in layman’s terms: hockey’s Gus Johnson) calling the action, it was a pretty big deal. Continue reading

Pitt football coach broke up with his players by text message

Former Pittsburgh Panthers coach Todd Graham spent just one season on campus. So maybe he just felt like he didn’t make enough of a bond with his players necessary to break the news that he was taking another job to their faces. You know, the decent thing to do. Continue reading
