Video: Kelly Leak is a Bad Mother

I mentioned Bad News Bears in my previous post, so I couldn’t help but do a quick YouTube search to try to get some gems. The obvious choices would be the profanity-laced, racist tirades courtesy of young Tanner Boyle, and those are readily available, but I decided to go with a different type of clip.

Here is the Bears’ lone African-American (and seemingly the only one in the entire town) Ahmad Abdul Rahim, expressing his doubts about bringing the talented-but-troubled Kelly Leak onto the squad.

Five Early Observations Of The 2011-12 NBA Season

The first week of the NBA season is always exciting because of the NBA Season Pass free preview. However, this season’s inaugural week was particularly special because it happened to fall during the holidays, allowing fans like myself to watch an unhealthy amount of games while munching on cookies and guzzling egg nog.

Further, this season in particular brings its own brand of comedy and tragedy due to the lockout-shortened training camp. We get to see NBA basketball in its laboring mediocrity as the players and coaches scramble to heighten their proficiency back up to the standards we are accustomed to seeing.
