This is the slowest time in the sports world. Radio silence from the Super Bowl teams, Basketball is in its dog-days of the grind. The big news with the Dubs at least, is Boogie Cousins and his return to the game. He’s been a foul magnet, and looks rusty, but he should round into form in time for the playoffs. Hockey? Meh. The Sharks are fine. I’ll glance at a game once in a while. Like basketball though, the season is way too long and everyone makes the playoffs.
Then there’s Super Bowl week! A maddening clusterfuck of forced interviews and canned pronouncements. Unless you are Marshawn Lynch (“I’m here so I don’t get fined”) or Chris Culliver (“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”). We’ll get the scintillating Bill Belichick responses (“I’m looking at the Rams. They are a tough team.” Repeat 5,000 times) while I shove hot knitting needles in my eyes to ease the process.
Actually, I won’t even listen or bother. The quiet before the media storm becomes the quiet before the quiet. Still tired of Brady. Go rams. Ot maybe a sinkhole will swallow both teams at kickoff.
