No this is not just an excuse to throw up a picture of 2009′s Miss California Carrie Prejean. Sure she’s gorgeous and is in the news after totally flubbing her answer to a question about gay marriage at this weekend’s Miss USA Pageant, but did you know she’s also a former member of the Pad Squad? I don’t care what she said about gay marriage, she was robbed. On to the headlines…
Ricky Rubio is coming to America!!! Finally. It seems we’ve been hearing about this kid’s arrival forever. So now the questions is, Blake Griffin or Ricky Rubio? Choose wisely.
Leon Powe is done for the rest of the playoffs. As are the Celtics. They weren’t going to win it without Garnett anyway, but this could get ugly now. Kendrick Perkins and Big Baby Davis isn’t exactly a championship-level frontcourt.
The Detroit Lions say they expect to have a deal in place with the No. 1 pick before Saturday’s NFL Draft. I’d make a joke about this, somehow related to the Lions’ ineptitude, but now that Matt Millen is no longer in charge it really takes the wind out of my sails. I don’t want to beat up on new Lions GM Martin Mayhew for no reason. I’ll wait until they pick Georgia quarterback Matt Stafford to do that.
