I am a bit of an anomaly in that I like both the Red Sox and Yankees. Growing up I liked the Red Sox, but in 2004 two things happened. I moved to the Bay Area, and the Red Sox won the series. When I moved to the Bay I started following the A's, and when the Red Sox won, it took away the mystique. You know the feeling when you want something really bad, let's say it's a new car, and you've been saving up and saving up and waiting and waiting, and then you get it, and it's amazing for a few months until you start thinking about the next car? Well that's what happened with me and the Red Sox. Combine that with a few more championships and it's just hard for me to root for them anymore, although I guess I'm still a casual fan. I will say though with regards to the rivalry; it is quite real. I've seen fights, heard about worse fights, and once, while at Yankee Stadium cheering (politely and calmly) for the Red Sox, I got hit in the head with a water bottle. By the way, I realized that in this long diatribe I only covered baseball. I'll also mention football, where surprisingly it seems there should be more of a rivalry because Eli and the Giants got Brady and the Patriots goat. Twice. Back to Eli for a second - the guy wins two Super Bowls and most Giants fans I know call him a bum. Fickle bunch.

There hasn't been much of any sports rivalry with these two in recent years. It's been Los Angeles vs Boston, with Boston taking both titles pretty easily. In the acting community however, people are constantly talking about LA vs NY, with both being the meccas; NY more for theatre with LA more for film and tv, although that is changing especially with the Netflix's, Amazon's, Hulu's etc of the world. LA does have a strong hold on comedy television if that's your thing. NY has some great dramas going on right now, two being Billions and the Deuce.

I really expected Whiteside to be another case like "Linsanity", where a fringe NBA guy was given big minutes all of a sudden and managed to produce above his ability for a while. (Lin did manage to convert a legit NBA career out of that Knicks run, but as a back-up level pg, not an almost all-star level player.) But Whiteside has been a legitimately dominant big man both last season and this season. He's currently averaging a double-double and just a touch under 4 blocks per game. That merits all-star consideration.

Probably the most vocal and outspoken. For better or worse, he revolutionized sports reporting. Sure, he was a pompous blowhard. And arrogant. That being said, it is too bad that Howard Cosell did not live long enough to castigate Dan on this site. He was good at ripping people apart.

The increased use of bulk Texting for business

Gone are the days of writing letters, mail merging the details, attaching them into envelopes and fixing a stamp. People want to know the newest information and want to know it quick. This is why companies dealing with bulk texting, have developed an online text service that transmit your SMS message to as several people as you want all with the click of a few buttons. Though by bulk text messaging and other advances in technology small and medium enterprises currently have a slingshot to strike the crap out of a giant. And through the best software, they would currently have the rock to fall down the giants of the world marketplace. Text message marketing permits one hundred sixty text characters, equal to that allow in twitter, but doesn't want mobile and also permit opt-in via short code text verification though, in contrast twitter the beginning of the following is less expedient. The current story as to Mobile Marketing approach as well as social Internet can be viewed as latest, but powerful and appear to be likewise notable in the future. Each time a business makes use of SMS marketing planned for advertising and marketing, it does not entail it should desist by itself while using some other advertising and marketing. Sending out a bulk SMS Text has its benefits and only one drawback and that is the size of the text message being sent, it is restricted by most systems to 160 characters in size.

If I had defied gravity and flew through space to snatch a perfect game winning touch down pass out of the hands of an opposing receiver in the last play of a game that resulted in my team going to the Super Bowl, I would have been WAY more out of control than Richard Sherman's brief bit of howling about how good he is.

They would have found me running naked through the upper deck.

On Tuesday.

I've seen the clip. Who cares. I didn't find anything offensive about it in the least.

Everyone who makes it to the top of their sport, or any field of endeavor, quickly becomes a target. But at the end of the day the legacy of players like Jordan rests in the record books more than their reputations. I think Wilt Chamberlain is the only basketball player who's statistical legacy is in the league of Jordan's in terms of scoring.

All of the greats (Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali, Babe Ruth, Tiger Woods) have detractors who will claim that they played rough and/or received favoritism from officials and the league due to their marquee status. But it was their skill and accomplishments that earned them that marquee status in the first place. The criticisms of Jordan's character and behaviour are complainants that can be leveled at pretty much any player who is extremely competitive and driven to succeed.

When he first made an impression on the boxing world he was feared for his ability and the incredible impact of his punch. Over the course of a decade his life, his PR and finally his skill in the ring fell to the level of cheap sideshow.

Was he personally ill prepared and lacking in maturity to be at the top of the sport? It appeared so.

Was he a dupe of handlers like Don King and the sleazy underbelly of what became of the fight game in the 80's and 90's? It sure looked like it to the casual observer.

Was it attributable to the impact of a cocktail of chemical substances on his persona? Wouldn't surprise me.

And all of that is the narrative he's now working on - a troubled kid who fell under bad influences when he was rising through the ranks of the elite sport and celebrity worlds. Sadly, in the process his boxing legacy is becoming a footnote in the history of the sport. He's becoming as irrelevant as George Foreman, erasing the picture in the public's eye that he was ever a credible fighter at all.

Right now, his mouth is open. As a professional sports troll, I am waiting for Satan Manning to close said mouth so I'll have something to laugh at.

Moving right along, I don't dislike the guy and I don't think he's a thug or any of that other stuff that people with a lower level of education than Sherman has are saying about him. He's a loudmouth, perhaps, but that's best settled on the field. I'll also put forward that maybe Crabtree is just a bitch, but that's not a hard and fast opinion either.
