L.A. Pride is a true sports enthusiast. A former youth, and division II assistant basketball coach, who studied the martial arts, he enjoys and follows all sports, even hockey. His quick wit and insight brings a fresh view to the world of sports. You may not always agree with him, but you will enjoy his highly opinionated thoughts.
Is it me…
Or would we like to see the following in 2013?
A competitive and exciting Super Bowl game. The teams are set, as are the first round match-ups: Bengals at the Texans; Colts at the Ravens, Vikings at the Packers, and the Seahawks at the “Redskins” ( they really need to change this nickname). The Falcons, 49’ers, Broncos and Patriots have byes. The only thing left to do in pro football is to play the games and hope that they are exciting, leading up to an evenly matched Super Bowl between …You’ll have to read next weeks column for my picks.
The N.Y. Knicks continuing to play well and are a force in the playoffs.
The Jets get a quarterback (sorry Mark Sanchez) and an offensive scheme.
The Dallas Cowboys live up to their hype. Every year they are selected as a contender, but end up a pretender. How much longer will they trust Tony Romo? Every year he figures out a way to lose an important game. The only thing worst than Romo at quarterback is Mark Sanchez at quarterback.
The Brooklyn Nets players take responsibility for their losing ways . Enough with blaming the coach. (He didn’t miss any shots .) I would love to see the day an owner cuts the entire under achieving team and keeps the coach.
The end to ‘Black Monday”. (The Monday after the last game of the NFL season when NFL coaches are usually fired.) The owners could wait a day or two to make sure the coach deserves to be fired. But owners, like players, are quick to point their fingers, and firing the coach is the ‘easy fix’. (Or so they think.)
A professional sport without a labor disagreement. Just play the games.! Professional Hockey is hoping to salvage the current season with a 48 game schedule beginning mid-January. We’ll see!
Pacquiao versus Mayweather . This is still a fight that holds the public’s interest. PacMan has had a couple of setbacks lately, and ‘Money’ hasn’t fought for a while, but their reputations alone make this a must see fight. There would be less money on the table, but enough for each fighter to buy a small country.
The Los Angeles Clippers win an NBA championship. The Clippers, for years, have been perennial losers and were second bananas to the Lakers. Now they are really good and are stealing the headlines in L.A.
Victor Cruz getting ‘paid’ by the N.Y. Giants.
All those Notre Dame Fans confessing that they didn’t really attend Notre Dame.
A karate tournament on television highlighting the sparring and traditional forms, NOT the gymnast or breaking.
Men’s College Basketball following the ladies‘ lead (Uconn defeated Stanford) and schedule the top teams against each other early in the season. Kentucky played a very good game against Louisville, on the men’s side and will actually be better for it in spite of a loss.
A mid-major or a small school win March Madness. That would show the “one and done’ programs a thing or two. (One and done , are those kids that go to college because the NBA will no longer take players directly from High School; so they go to college for one year.)
A safe, healthy, and productive return to the NBA for A. Stoudemire of the Knicks, and D. Rose of the Bulls.
A sport’s season without major injuries.
Fewer hunters and stronger gun control laws.
Health and Happiness to my readers and their loved ones.
Have a wonderful New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
