Late Morning Stream of Consciousness

  


RIP Dark Star........The Sports Show will not be the same without you.........Hope you are somewhere were you can drink and gamble............It has been just one day without the NHL, and I miss it already......Stoked for the Wild to not suck next year(hopefully)......I also hope the NHL is not dumb enough to lockout its players again.........But this is a league that missed an entire season, so you never know.......Terrible officiating in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals......Two hits from behind 10 seconds apart.......No call on the home team, and a 5 minute major for the visiting team.....not saying it was rigged(boxing) or manipulated(NBA) but that was a terrible call.....Does not take away from the fact that the Kings deserved to win the Cup..........Zach Parise just stated that he would not play for the Rangers next year........One less team the Wild has to worry about competing with......I think he ends up back in Jersey, or with Detroit........Those two teams have a track record of making the playoffs and competing for the Stanley Cup most years.......Sadly, the Wild do not.......The boxing match on saturday night was definitely fixed.....Manny was a huge favorite, but his odds dropped dramatically in the two days before the fight, meaning all the smart money was bet on his opponent, Bradley......This was the most egregious fix of a sporting event, since the 1919 Black Sox,......Kevin Durant proved that he is the best player in the NBA with his performance last night.....In his first Finals appearance he scored 36 points; becoming the 4th youngest player to score 35+ points in a Finals game.....He scored 17 of his 36 in the fourth quarter...I hate Dwayne Wade......I never used to, but after watching him stink up the court, for the most part in these playoffs, his whining and false bravado have really soured me on him.....He never used to do that.....Wade will be the reason the Heat lose in the Finals from a Heat perspective, but Lebron will get the blame.....The fact is the Thunder are the better TEAM....The Twins should not trade Denard Span.......He is the best all-around player on the team and he is still improving......I can not famoth why they would even discuss trading Denard......Somehow the Twins are only 8.5 games out of the Division lead......Just goes to show the AL Central is always winnable........Byron Buxton has been compared favorably to Mike Trout of the Angels.....If he is half as good as Trout, the Twins will have hit a Home-run that pick, which they need.......Trout is already third in the MLB in winshares, and he has only played 38 games in the big leagues this year........Imagine the attention he would garner if he played on the East Coast......He is better than Bryce Harper, the Nationals phenom............that is not a knock on Harper who is having a great season......it is a compliment to Trout, the best rookie since Ken Griffey JR........
I hate to say it, but the Twins should trade Josh Willingham at the deadline if they are still out of the race......The Twin's will receive more for him theoretically than anybody else they have on the roster......He does not fit in the Twins long term plans, as he is an older player..... By the time the Twins have the pitching to realistically compete for a championship, he will be long gone......It is better to trade him when his value is high, then to hang on to him.......If they do trade him it will be up to Terry Ryan to make sure they receive  something good for him.....This was former Twin's GM, Billy Smith's biggest downfall, of many.....he never made a good trade, and could not evaluate players from other teams/leagues.......We received nothing of value for; Johan Santana, JJ Hardy, RA Dickey, Delmon Young, etc........We also pissed away valuable resources on Nishioka, who last I checked was batting .179 in AAA............No one says anything about this subject, but Bill Smith is the biggest reason the Twins have sucked for the past two years.....He batted .000 when it came to helping his team succeed.....I do not care if he was a great guy.....He was a lousy GM......His shitty moves allow David Kahn's moves to appear, "Red Auerbaching," in comparison.....I'm not gonna lie, I've grown fond of international football(soccer)........The EURO cup has been entertaining.......Anytime you get riots, fights, and a crazy atmosphere I will tune in......Plus I could listen to English people talk about the WNBA, or the weather all day with their accents.....Ok, maybe not the WNBA......I wouldn't wish that on anybody......Setting a WNBA record; is like setting a Guiness book of World Records for four square or hopscotch.....No one cares, and everybody wonders: Why is that person(s)  wasting their time? .........Although I would rather watch someone set those hypothetical records, then watch a WNBA game...fact..........Today's Don't print that: The Wild are going to make a run at Zach Parise, some old guy, that no one has ever heard of under the age of 76, is having a benefit at the Oakdale Prom Center, and a little birdie told me: The Vikings will be playing the Packers, Lions, and Bears at home this year...........I don't which Hartman, Sid, or Chad, deserves their job less.......Sid used to be competent/ relevant 20-30 years ago, so it makes sense that he still gets a column.......even though he has dementia and tried to eat Jim Souhan's face off last week(that would be awesome in so many ways).......Chad has a job because of his dad, so I guess it is a toss up......
