Barclay’s Premier League

May 11, 2011

About time to get off that black coffee study diet and onto that Whiiite. Big events happened in the sporting world since my last post — the Masters, the NFL draft and lockout, the NBA and NHL playoffs and MLB season started, Kentucky Derby, and, most importantly, India won the Cricket World Cup — but law school doesn’t allow much time for blogging. I’ll now take my pretentious cap off and give you 3 reasons why you should care about perhaps the best domestic sports league in the world, the English Premier League (yes, Greg, that’s soccer.)

Is Carmelo “Marbury 2.0”? #No.

March 21, 2011

The New York Knickerbockers are now 7-8 since the blockbuster Carmelo Anthony deal, and the list of players who have bodied them this season reads like a who’s who of D-Leaguers and role players (see below). A few people think the Knicks are mailing it in because they don’t like Mike D’Antoni as their coach (ridiculous). Some reasonable and logical folks think they just need time to gel as a team (bingo!). Many are hopping off the bandwagon, so this is the perfect time to get on board if you haven’t already. [If you don’t think this team will give the Celtics, Heat, Bulls, whoever a scare in the first round, I don’t value your sports opinion.]  List of nerds after the jump.

Happy March, Y’all

March 15, 2011

It’s been a minute since I hopped on a That Whiiite post, and I’m not about to write a full-length feature just yet, but here are my predictions for the Elite 8, Final Four, and Nat’l Championship. It’s too bad DJ Kennedy of St. John’s was lost for the season in the Big East Tourney — I would have enjoyed seeing a Johnnies run in the Big Dance, but a first round exit to the Adam Morrisons is more likely than an Elite Eight appearance for the Queens squad.

Black & Yellow, Green & Yellow, etc.

February 3, 2011

According to a Penn Schoen Berland (…) poll, the Super Bowl is the second most important day of the year for American males (Christmas is first).  Let’s ignore what that poll, if true, says about our society and let’s focus on THE BEST SUPER BOWL MATCHUP IN YEARS.

NYC: Personified

January 27, 2011

New Yorkers have sports options.  If you grew up within an hour of New York City, chances are you have friends who are Jets fans or Giants fans, Yankees fans or Mets fans.  The Devils take some shine away from the Rangers.  But the Knicks are uniquely New York’s team.  (What?  There’s a team called the Nets?)

Rodgers, Cutler, Sanchez, & Roethlisberger, LLC

January 20, 2011

Whoa, a hell of a divisional round.

The weekend started with the Steelers erasing a 21-7 halftime deficit to defeat rival Baltimore.  With less than two minutes to go in the fourth, and the score tied at 24, Ben Roethlisberger tossed a 58-yard dime to rookie Antonio Brown, which set up Rashard Mendenhall’s go-ahead score.  Three turnovers in the 3rd quarter and huge drops by WR acquisitions Anquan Boldin (in the endzone) and TJ Houshmanzadeh (on 4th down) ensured that the Steelers escaped with a 31-24 victory.
