THE BIG THREE

MLB

Bud Selig wants Jason Giambi to talk to the MLB steroid busters “or else”. Or else what Bud? You’re gonna suspend Jason Giambi for talking about something that happened in the past, that he already kinda admitted to, for what? I’m not even sure where this steroid scandal investigation is going. If every player that ever used steroids came forward today and admitted it, then what? Nobody is gonna shutdown MLB.. And MLB officials might not have been doing the roids, but they were well aware of what was going on. The new rules are in place, so it’s time to focus on current steroid users, the dummies that slip up now. Threatening punishment for Giambi is lip service that really serves no purpose. Let’s look forward instead of living in the past.

NBA

Baseball is known as the “numbers” sport but Jason over at Ball Hype has picked up where Bill Simmons and John Hollinger left off for basketball statistical analysis. Breaking down who was the best player for every ten year period of the league from ’51-’61 to ’97-’07 was a great idea and produced some interesting results. The rankings are based on Hollinger’s PER formula and most of the names you would expect to see there are there. If you take a look at the total number of ten year spans dominated by MJ, only centers Chamberlain, Jabbar, and O’neal are in his class. Guys like Olajuwon, Malone, and Garnett have the misfortune of playing in eras dominated by bigger stars.

NFL

Pacman Jones’ ill-fated trip and “rain making” at a strip club during the NBA All-Star weekend was one of the reasons he ended up being suspended for the season by new NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Yesterday the news broke that Jones’ DNA tested negative, twice, when compared to DNA obtained from a stripper that was bitten during the February fracas. So the DNA doesn’t match and you have Lt. George Castro saying that the police still have not connected what happened inside the club to the shooting that took place outside of the club. If Adam Jones is cleared of everything except for being a 81k idiot, will/should the NFL reduce his suspension?

RAPPING UP SPORTS IN THE LATE SIXTIES

Posted by HG on June 4, 2007

In the wrong hands, rap is a bad and dangerous thing. If you don’t know anything about sports in the late 60s and you don’t mind lyrics being completely offbeat then this is the video for you.

They’ve got 99 problems and knowing how to rap is about 98 of ’em.

JETS PRO BOWL RETURNER ARRESTED

Posted by HG on May 20, 2007

Justin Miller, a cornerback and kick returner for the New York Jetsjustin-miller.jpg was arrested early Sunday morning for going Ron Artest accidentally punching a woman during a fight at a New York City nightclub. According to police Miller took a swing at a man, the man ducked, and Miller struck the woman in the face. JM is apparently some sort of bad ass because the 5’10”, 196 pound footballer was taking on 3 guys at the time of misplaced punch. There’s no information on the size of the other 3 men involved in the altercation.

Justin Miller issued the following statement:

I want to apologize to everyone for this situation, including my family, my teammates, the Jets organization, our fans and the entire NFL. I understand that serving in the NFL is an honor and that I have an obligation to behave in a manner that reflects the privilege I have been given.”

The Jets are currently “evaluating the situation” and plan to take the matter to the commissioner’s office. The NYJ’s statement:

“We expect our players to adhere to the highest standards of conduct off the field and take any allegation of personal misconduct very seriously. We are in the process of gathering information, and have notified the commissioner — in light of the NFL’s new conduct policy. Until we’ve had an opportunity to review all the facts we will refrain from further comment.”

It sounds like the Jets are trying to land on the good side of the Commish by taking the matter to him… It sucks for Miller, but it sucks even more for the lady that got punched on accident. If you’re unfamiliar with Justin Miller, check out this video of some of his college highlights:

I couple of things I thought of while watching the video: dude can lay some hat, thank goodness the woman only suffered a laceration on her face and pain and swelling in her knee, AND… How in the hell did the police catch him?
