You know it was BS, I knew it, and I’m a Seahawks fan.
I loathe virtually everything ESPN does these days. This commercial with John Clayton sporting a pony-tail and rocking out to loud music is not one of them. It’s the best thing ESPN has ever done. Ever.
If they can find a way to make me like Skip Bayless I might just change my mind on them.
Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve written about the NBA this season on this blog. Given my declining interest in the NBA, maybe it’s not that unbelievable.
Anyway, the LA Clippers are relevant for a change…just in time for the 2012 prophecy to be fulfilled (I kid I kid). Here’s Blake Griffin completely destroying Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins with a dunk for the ages.
That boy is strong. Really really strong.
Chances are that will be my last NBA post for several weeks because college basketball is heating up and it’s way more exciting than anything the NBA has produced since about 2002.
The first ever UFC show on FX took place tonight in Nashville, Tennessee, headlined by lightweights Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller. Guillard was swiftly choked out like he normally does against a top-level fighter, but before all of that the televised main card started off with a bang.
Pat Barry needed a win against Christian Morecraft to keep his UFC career safe. Some of the biggest criticisms of Barry were his lack of killer instinct and a poor ground game. Well not only did he show great defensive grappling, stifling several submissions against Morecraft, he certainly showed killer instinct in this monster KO.
Huge left hook followed up with several shots that Herb Dean should’ve never allowed to happen. Doesn’t take away from the fact that this was a huge win for Barry and a great KO. Morecraft meanwhile almost certainly has no UFC future, dropping to 1-3 with the promotion and all losses via KO.
Barry vs. Morecraft somehow won Fight of the Night when Mike Easton vs. Jared Pepazian was miles better. But I guess the UFC likes it when heavyweights slug it out and it ends in a KO, don’t they?
It only took one event but I think we found our best KO of the year. Brazilian lightweight prospect Edson Barboza provided us with the first ever wheel kick KO in UFC history. The recipient was Terry Etim with 3 mins left in the 3rd round. Literally everything about this GIF was beautiful.
What is it with Brits getting KTFO’d so memorably? Henderson vs. Bisping, Condit vs. Hardy, and now Barboza vs. Etim.
Barboza won KO of the Night and Fight of the Night so he earned himself lots of money last night in his home country of Brazil.
