Wow another icon dead George Steinbrenner the principal owner of sports greatest franchise The New York Yankees died this week at the age of 80. Before Rick Ross the New York media gave him the title "The Boss" taking a strugling baseball team and returning them back to glory. Steinbrenner was no saint or Art Rooney but he was one tough S.O.B. and winning was his only cure when ever his heart cried after a Yankee lost. For 38 years he was the straw the stired the drink and made no aplogies about it. Growiing up in the New York Metro area I remember Steinbrenner demanding the best from the best and bringing the Yankee pride back to the Bronx. Donald Trump wanted to win like him and Jerry Jones tried to be like him but there is only one Boss R.I.P.
Yes it's that time of year again where according to the expertsÂ where the 65 top collegeÂ basketball teams battle it out on the hardwood for the right to be crowned "National Champs". Big schools,mid majors, and little schools battle it out to win and survive. You gotta to love it the stories of these cinderalla team beating upÂ the big shots and wearing that glass slipper for one moreÂ game. College sports at it's best office pools and crazy mascots that help make this tournament great.Â However it seems a little a vacant without those tradional major players not good enough to make itÂ to the big dance this year Â like Carolina ,UCLA,Arizonia,and UCONN. But like I stated earlier that is what makes this tournament great. Nonething is a given you must bring your A game day in and day out. So as this year tournament kicks off I remind you to pull for my bracket to win the office pool go Georgetown, go Pittsburg, go Kentucky andÂ go Nova and win it Â all Hoyas . "Let The Madness Begin"
Well here we are with the Confernce Championship games this weekend in the NFL. The Viking vs Saints and the Colts vsÂ Jets.Â With that being said,Â it kills me that the end is almost here.Â Football will be gone until next season.Â Â Whhhhy!! Â I mean feel like I kid who made out with the hot girl then she leaves, damn.Â Â ButÂ I won't getÂ get into all that right now.Â Â Lets talk football.Â Â I feel Bret farve will lead his Vikings to upset the saints in a classic NFL gun slinger shoot out.Â In the AFC,Â IÂ love the jets but Indy got MANNING.
