The league on Tuesday changed its overtime rules for postseason games. Starting next season, if a team wins the coin toss and then kicks a field goal, the other team gets the ball. If that next series ends with another field goal, play will continue under the current sudden-death rules. If the team winning the […]
While most of the country is getting ready for March Madness, there’s a growing group of former players just plain Mad at the NCAA for profiting from the use of player’s images without their permission. Ed Obannon, the former UCLA star who was a member of the 1995 team that won the NCAA championship, is leading the charge in […]
I know we spoke on this already, I just had to post this picture though, Pricele$$. It seems that Jay-Z, not content with being a multi-millionaire music mogul, has decided to dip into the political arena once again. The rapper showed up at the breaking of the ground for the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards […]
Gerard Anderson of Cal State Fullerton goes up….and over… Absolutely Amazing….
A.I.’s killer crossover from yesteryear won’t even get him past the latest challenge in his life. Not only has his wife filed for divorce, but the media has jumped all over the dirty laundry she’s decided to air. That’s okay…shake it off Ive-O…into everyone’s life a little rain must fall. We, at UML, refuse to […]
When will professional athletes learn? I’ll be the last one to say Ben is guilty simply because I don’t believe in throwing stones when I don’t have the slightest bit of real insight. But I will say that if you’re a high-profile public figure known to be worth a lot of dough….then you should probably […]
Today the 76ers confirmed what has been whispered for some time: Allen Iverson won’t be back in a Sixers uniform this season. As a parent, I can’t doubt for a moment that Iverson has far more important things on his mind than NBA basketball. Word is that until his daughter’s health situation is resolved, he […]
Sometimes you should just step to the side.
In a move that I applaud, LeBron James plans to change his number to 6 his Olympic jersey number. In November he spoke of switching numbers in hopes that the NBA would officially retire 23 in honor of Michael Jordan. ESPN reports that LeBron filed his paperwork to change his number Monday in order to beat the Wednesday […]
I will be the first to tell you that I am far from being what I consider a hockey fan. In fact the last time I watched a hockey game was during the 1994 Winter Games. I couldn’t tell you who I was watching or what the final score was. But what I can say […]
It is fitting to close out Black History month, by highlighting some historic events that happened during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Shani Davis, the 27 year old speed skater, won his second consecutive gold medal in the 1000 Meter during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. And he even won another silver medal in the 1500 […]
Come to an end……or so it seems. 3 legends will move on to new teams….maybe even new stages of life. Ladanian Tomlinson, Brian Westbrook, and Allen Iverson will all be leaving franchises they helped to define. What will the future hold?
So this past weekend was supposedly the second biggest sporting weekend of the year, the NBA All-Star game. And coming so close to the Super Bowl we expected a lot, at least I did. Now the game itself was competitive no complaints here. BUT…. that Saturday night action was a little suspect. In my opinion […]
Looks like some have taken offense to the success of Blacks and foreigners in the NBA! Plans are under way to launch an all-white basketball league this summer. The league will have 12 franchises and will only be open to players with both parents white. Wow! Is this even legal, lol! I mean I guess […]
By Doug Farrar You’ve probably seen Prince Rogers Nelson, His Royal Purpleness, in a luxury box watching the Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Field this season, especially since FOX enjoys crowd cuts at the expense of in-game replay as a general rule. And this compatibility isn’t just about the common themes of the Twin […]
I started out starvin’ Now they got me out here Brett Farve’n Try’n to see if I still got it… (got it…) I guess it’s like a bike think about it… (’bout it…) -Andre 3000 As a Green Bay Packer fan it is hard to cheer wholeheartedly for the Minnesota Vikings Vi-Queens. But with the […]
There is really nothing else to say except we hope they don’t throw the book at Gilbert!!
Last year we were given a glimpse of the future when SoBe Life Water aired a 3D commercial during the Super Bowl 2009. NBC also aired the first full episode of a TV show in 3D, when it aired Chuck on February 2nd.And now ESPN is planning to take sports to the next dimension
Sports writer William Rhodes’ book Forty Million Dollar Slaves: The Rise, Fall and Redemption of the Black Athlete, claims professional black athletes command exorbitant salaries and secure multimillion-dollar endorsement deals, but don’t use their wealth and influence to help improve the economic condition of many blacks. Fortunately with a little Magic, and his Magic Brand presence in more than 80 U.S. […]
This perhaps could be the best pee-wee running back I have ever seen. Not that I go around scouting 10 year olds or anything, but this kid, Cody Paul is ridiculous!! This video is from a few years ago, so it is quite possible that he is getting ready to shake some high-school fools right […]
So the March 13th, 2010 party at AK’s may not happen after all? No poker, JJ Wings, Beer, and cigar smokes?? All because of a drug test? What you mean you not taking an Olympic style drug test Pacquiao? You would pass up a $45 million payday because of a fear of needles? You lying […]
