LeBron says he doesn’t want to talk about free agency 2010.
Would he rather us talk about his New York-centricness?
First off these are a fashion monstrosity.
The baseball toes or whatever they’re called are awful. The PinStripedBaseball Motif is awful.
You’re playing basketball. You know that right? NO CROSS-SPORT-REFERENCING SHOES. That’s just confusing.
Second off, the Yankees are stupid and lame.
Third off, LeBron wants to go to New York. He may as well have painted his face saying “I Want To Go To New York In 2010 And Sign A Max Deal”
But then again, his face isn’t that big.
Factoid: The Yankees won 10 of their 27 World Series championships when baseball was still segregated.
Newsflash: LeBron James is black.
Cue: The Ironic Music.
On a more important note, we have a FANTASY ALERT.
Pick up Nate Burleson.
Nate Burleson, Seattle Seahawks WR, has said the following:
“Listen, I don’t want to give anybody any bulletin board material, but I do believe it was Herman Edwards [who said] we play to win the game. Period,” Burleson said, via SeattlePI.com. “So, we’re going on the road to play a football game. We’re gonna win.
“I don’t care what you say. People can print it in the paper, they can send it to the teams we’re playing. But they know just like we know, we’re going to win the game.”
Seattle, owners of a 3-5 record this year, also owners of a 27-3 beatdown at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals, a game where Matt Hasselbeck passed for a whopping 112 yards and Orange Julius Jones rushed for 5, count em on one hand, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 yards.
I don’t think that last sentence had a verb.
Seattle plays those same Cardinals. On the road.
Those same Cardinals who thoroughly drilled the Chicago Bears, 41-21, last week.
Sure, Nate, you have crazy, wild stats. (3 TDs in a half season? Somebody get him to pee in a cup!)
But even Pacman Jones is shaking his head at you. (Because he knows you shoulda kept your mouth shut. Not cuz you’re lighting up opposing secondaries. Because you aren’t doing the latter.)
Although you average 0.375 TDs a game, you should be careful what you say.
Arizona’s finna run train on the Seahawks.
This isn’t going to be pretty.
Speaking of which.
