Kyrie-Irving-Getty-Atlanta-Hawks

Kyrie Irving has sick handles. He may have the best handles in the league, and if you want proof, just ask Jeff Teague.

In the Cavs/Hawks game earlier today, Irving hit Teague with a nasty change of direction behind the back move from the top of the key, sending Teague to the ground. Check out this nasty move.

There are no excuses for Teague here. He can’t use the “I tripped over the screeners feet” on this one because this was a straight up one-on-one move that got him

It wouldn’t matter though as Teague got the last laugh. He drilled the game winner as time expired in overtime.

After singing with the New York Yankees, Carlos Beltran was predictably asked a bunch of questions about his tenure with the New York Mets.  Obviously this was important since the New York sports beat writers consist of trolls and half breeds who would rather piss off tons of people rather than report about a boring introductory press conference.

Unknown-3

Hockey is a game of crazy goals and weird endings, but the ending to the Phoenix Coyotes/Buffalo Sabres game last night may have been the weirdest ending ever.

The game headed to overtime after ending regulation tied up at 1. Coyotes’ goalie Mike Smith made a save in OT, and the puck went flying up into the air. Smith lost vision of the puck and did what any goalie would do – retreat to the net to protect against a rebound shot.

The result – a Sabres victory. This is something you need to see to believe.

Does it get any better than that?

Brooklyn Nets G/F Paul Pierce was ejected during Monday night’s game vs the Indiana Pacers for his flagrant foul on George Hill.  He took a page out of Hulk Hogan’s book when he went WWF style and clotheslined the diminutive point guard as he drove to the basket.  Check out the video after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »

Suddora

 

zipper_sweatbands_large

 

The good people at Suddora.com sent over a few sweatbands for me to try out, and I’m here to share my thoughts on how they held up after a few workouts.  They offer many different types of wristbands, headbands, arm sleeves, mouthguards, shoelaces, and customizeable items in various colors and combos.

QUICK REVIEW:

Style: B

Comfort: B-

Durability: A

Price/Value: A

Overall: B+

Suddora knocks it out of the park with their value.  Their products are a fraction of the price of competing companies, and they offer bulk discounts on large orders to further reduce their prices.  The sweatbands are well constructed, but I found them to be a bit tight (hence the knock in comfort, but then again my arms tend to be more muscular than the average person, so they may fit you better than they did me).  I’ve never seen sweatbands with zippers to store whatever you may want to store in a sweatband before, and found this idea novel and practical.  It’s the perfect place to put a key while you work out or go for a run.

If you’re looking for a plain sweatband and don’t want to pay the overhead most sporting goods companies charge, give Suddora sweatbands a try.  They come in just about every shape, color, and size you could imagine, and at a more than reasonable price.

December 23, 2013 by

Tony Romo

The starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Romo, is out the rest of the season after suffering a back injury.  Head coach Jason Garret denies that Romo is out, but a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Romo’s season is over. This injury was suffered during the Cowboys game yesterday against the Washington Redskins. This injury obviously hurts the Cowboys chances of making the playoffs. Read the rest of this entry »
