The Miami Heat pulled off a spectacular come from behind victory in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. It was a comeback for the ages. Too bad a good portion of the fans who showed up did not get to see it.
Some people in attendance started streaming out of American Airlines Arena with a few minutes left in the game. It was amazing to see fans abandon their team when they still had a chance. And even if they didn’t, you should stay till the end. That’s what being a fan is all about.
And once those alleged fans were outside and realized that the Heat were coming back and sent the game into overtime they tried desperately to get let back in the arena. Luckily, security did not let them back in. Those bastards didn’t deserve to see what their team accomplished.
Victor Oquendo, a sports anchor for WPLG, live tweeted the whole sorry event.
Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows a frequently refer to Heat supporters as “fans.” I add the quotation marks because in my opinion most of them are not true fans. They are a bunch of bandwagoners who followed LeBron James to South Beach. I continually challenge said “fans” to tell me who Tim Hardaway is and I have yet to find one who can tell me without Googling it first.
So pay attention Heat “fans” this is why you are hated, not because your team is so great. You are hated because you suck.
I was going to throw a serious bitchfit when I heard that Time Tebow aka Backup Jesus was signed by the New England Patriots. At first I thought it was a joke. You know, you see somebody tweet out “BREAKING NEWS” followed by something ridiculous. They are just trying to be funny and the whole thing shouldn’t be taken seriously. I have been known to do that from time to time as well.
But when I saw this I knew I couldn’t possibly be true. When I found out it was true I hit the roof. This bit of news pretty much ruined the whole season for me and plenty of other fans.
I was going to piss and moan about how I didn’t even want to watch the NFL and how this decision is an affront to the whole game of football. I was going to do that but my good friends over at Deadspin beat me to it. And they did it much better than I would have.
This is one of my favorite passages:
This is what you’ve foisted upon the world, Bill Belichick. You can’t win a Super Bowl with your shitass defense these days, so now you just content yourself with demonstrating little football tricks for the world, to let everyone know you’ve still got it. You just subjected us to the worst of ESPN and the Tebow Industrial Complex. I hope it was worth it. You dick.
Took the words right out of my mouth.

I have to admit, I had absolutely no desire to watch the upcoming Floyd Mayweather-Robert Guerrero fight. That was until I saw the video below. Apparently Guerrero’s father, Reuben Guerrero, decided that it would be a good idea to repeatedly call Mayweather a woman beater.
To be fair, Mayweather did serve time for domestic abuse. But as far as I know that is is only time he has done such a thing. I don’t recall a string of accusations and arrests. After all, he’s not Brandon Marshall.
To his credit, Mayweather just sat there and didn’t respond. I’m assuming he is going to respond in the ring.
This awesome rant by the elder Guerrero almost makes me want to watch this fight. Almost.
Celtics player Jordan Crawford found himself in the middle of a controversy when he allegedly told Carmelo Anthony, “That motherfucker fucked your wife,” and the end of last night’s playoff game. I say “allegedly” only because to video of him mouthing off to Anthony after the Celtics’ 92-86 victory leaves a little ambiguity. Not much, but a little.
Anthony’s wife, La La Anthony, has chimed in on Instagram, saying, “Try again. You on the bench for a reason.” Presumably, this was directed towards Crawford. Deadspin.com has a nice report you should check out, with the video.
To his credit, Crawford has stuck to his story. He even tweeted out this earlier today:
See? He would never do something like that. Even though he was caught on camera doing just that.
It remains to be seen if this verbal scrum will be a distraction to Anthony and the Knicks and negatively impact their game or if it will energize them and help them close out Boston in Game 6. Given Carmelo Anthony’s history, I’d it can go either way.
ESPN poster boy and career backup QB, Tim Tebow, is currently out of work but that may be coming to an end according to cbssports.com.
They are reporting that super-agent and all around sleazy dude Drew Rosenhaus is saying that the Miami Dolphins may have some interest is signing Tebow.
This makes so little sense, football or otherwise, that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross just might pull the trigger on this transaction. He seems to be in love with Tebow all most as much as Skip Bayless. This is the guy who held a Tim Tebow appreciation day at Sun Life stadium when Tebow and the Denver Broncos came to town two seasons ago.
Dolphins GM, Jeff Ireland, has made such great moves for the Dolphins in the offseason and the NFL Draft that it only makes sense that the team owner will swoop in and destroy the whole thing in one chemistry-busting acquisition.
Hopefully this is just a sad, sad rumor.

By now the whole world knows that NBA player, Jason Collins, has come out of the closet. His announcement has been met with mostly positive comments. It has appeared that America has turned a very important corner in tolerance and acceptance. Of course, you knew it couldn’t last long.
Enter the Westboro Baptist Church. You know them, they’re the “God Hates Fags” people. And they really do not like Jason Collins or the NBA, for that matter.
They have decided that since the NBA is now rampant with homosexuals the are going to protest the playoff games of the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets and The Chicago Bulls vs. New Jersey Nets. Here is their tweet announcing a new sign made especially for the NBA:
I’m not sure why they have to pick on poor Kevin Durant but I guess they really don’t need a reason. It should be pointed out that this “church” is basically made up of the family of the Reverend Fred Phelps (no relation to Michael Phelps). So it is kind of hard to take them seriously. But they do seem to get a hell of a lot of media coverage. I guess I’m guilty of enabling them, too.
They may hate Jason Collins, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and David Stern but there is one sports personality they like; Chris Broussard:
This is probably not the endorsement that Broussard wanted but I guess you have to take what you can get.
Oklahoma City and Chicago better get ready for an onslaught of literally 8-10 protesters descending on the arenas.
It didn’t take too long for someone at the Worldwide Leader to make a fool out of himself regarding the Jason Collins announcement. Chris Broussard came in right on cue to prove once again that he is an idiot.
This is from my good friends over at Deadspin.
Well, after ESPN had a fairly terrible morningcovering the Jason Collins story, it looked like the network was making progress this afternoon: Smart news hour Outside The Lines would expand to a full hour to discuss the NBA player’s announcement. Fantastic.
Or maybe not. OTL booked Chris Broussard to have a discussion with openly gay correspondent LZ Granderson, and it rapidly devolved into a talk about whether or not gay sex is sinful. Huh? (Broussard’s let his thoughts on this matter be known before).
