Here are some cool links that you sports fans might want to check out.
- www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GszNJ1NCWo this 5’10 guy from France can absolutely rise up! He would take home the NBA slam dunk contest with ease. He’s got the Nate Robinson/Spud Webb advantage with his size, but he throws down dunks that you’ve never seen before.
- http://www.nba.com/features/player_rankings.html this is Maurice Brooks of NBA.com’s take on the MVP race. He has been running this on NBA.com all year, and has found his winner for the MVP. Let’s just say that I don’t agree with him.
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P7RBRhFcSU check out my boy Thierry Henry of France in this Joga Bonito Nike soccer commercial. One of my favorites. I love the wave of the hand over the head that he does. Someone in the NBA like Arenas needs to start doing this when he does something dope. While were at it here’s the Ronaldinho Joga Bonito commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzCrQ-OKBfI I love the background music.
- http://roadsidephotos.sabr.org/baseball/bbmain.htm Nice list of all of Doug’s Boston Baseball columns. A must look at for any die-hard Sox fan. This archive dates way back to 1996.
- http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/070417&sportCat=nba Bill Simmon’s countdown from the least valuable player all the way to the most valuable player. With the second part coming tomorrow. Just classic Simmons…..Love It!
- http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=granderson/070417 Great column by Liz Granderson about one time great American tennis prodigy Jan-Michael Gambill. Who since 2000 has fallen off of the tennis map, because of a string of injuries.
- http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=jones/070417&sportCat=nba More from Espn.com’s page 2 as Bomani Jones covers the chronicles of NBA official Joey Crawford.
Back next Wednesday for more links………and that’s the way the cookie crumbles
