MARLBORO, NY – I’m over having nothing to talk about as there is plenty to opine on as lots of news has passed over the airwaves very recently. Without wasting time and precious words let’s hop to it…
Zach Randolph: When is too much not enough? Apparently the 36 year-old Sacramento Kings forward’s new two year contract at $12M per doesn’t cut the mustard in making ends meet to the point where he has to augment his income by possessing enough wacky tobacky to be facing “intent to sell” criminal charges. All of this came to light after a Wednesday night disturbance in the luxurious Watts neighborhood projects of Los Angeles where the multi-millionaire was kickin’ it with some of his homies who were blocking street traffic while playing loud music, smoking dope and drinking alcohol. Yeah, sounded like one helluva block party… but what ensued was the vandalism of five patrol cars and one sheriff’s vehicle. It didn’t quite break the record seen during the Rodney King riots in the early ’90’s, but it was pretty big. Humorously, Randolph’s agent and attorney is earning his money with the following quick reaction, “The charges are false and misleading. We’re looking at all options to resolve this matter.” I’m laughing very heartily. Stay tuned while the accused look for a scapegoat to take the rap at the fair market price for copping to charges these days. As for Randolph, can you lay off the weed and find some new friends while you’re under contract? Two years goes by quickly and then you’re free to act without peril to the millions you make playing a game most would love to play.
Soccer: Something I never talk about is soccer but am forced to as POSTUS (Piece Of Sh!t of The United States) has some fodder to build that wall he so often talks about. Rafael Marquez Alvarez is captain of the Mexican national team, who has also played for the New York Red Bulls and is part of a drug trafficking syndicate that includes a soccer team and a casino. Stay tuned as this story will only grow larger if Trump has his way.
Little League World Series: Thank you Little League and dare I say, ESPN, for televising the only baseball I’ll be watching until the MLB starts post-season play. These kids can hack at the ball better than I can ever remember 12 and 13 year-olds doing so. The only thing I can complain about are the few bat flips I’ve witnessed but then again I can only blame the classy players in the Bigs that these kids love to emulate.
NFL: Two trades, in a league where front offices lay dormant once the draft is over, happened in the NFL on one day (Friday). They were insignificant to me but if you own wide receiver Sammy Watkins in fantasy football you have to be upset. Right Angry Ward? So you go from a bit of a deep-ball thrower in DJ Eberle’s MVP quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the underwhelming-at-best Los Angeles Rams Jared Goff. Stock down. Way down. And then there was Buffalo trying to recover from the aforementioned trade, to fill Watkins spot by acquiring the Eagles slow-footed, chain-moving wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Way to go Buffalo. Start printing those playoff tickets.
Speaking of Buffalo, come back tomorrow for a man that will convince all how this trade secures the Bills their first Super Bowl win, DJ Eberle. And please follow us on Twitter – @CheesyBruin & @MeetTheMatts, @Matt_McCarthy00, Instagram @MeetTheMatts and like our Facebook page, Meet The Matts.
