In case you were thinking how attractive the Dolphin’s new quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, is stop because his wife is smoking hot. She is so hot that apparently the media was more taken with her than Mr. Tannehill. There were over 800 tweets about Lauren Tannehill after she appeared on television with her new hubby during last nights draft. She is an aspiring model so this will be a big boost for her. I guess Tannehill didn’t need the fame to get a hot chick. Personally I think they are an adorable couple, just like Barbie and Ken.
The NFL Draft is like speed dating. Teams are looking for their perfect match to fill a their weak spots. For example the Colts need a quarterback after giving Peyton Manning the boot. As expected the Colts took Stanford QB Andrew Luck in the first round of the draft. Right behind Luck was Baylor’s QB Robert Griffin who was picked by the Washington Redskins. The Redskins struggled last season with scoring and Griffin is definitely going to help them.
If you have never followed the draft before it can be extremely confusing. Here is the basics, there are seven rounds to the draft. Every player wants to be a first round pick. Within a round there are 32 draftees. Usually each team gets one pick per round, sometimes more depending on a complicated set of criteria(that tries to balance out teams with a lot of money and teams with no money). Just like you are shopping at the market teams go in with a list of who they want. Of course as picks happen this list has to be adjusted. Players can be drafted to one team and then immediately swapped to another. (more…)
Witnessing the Charlotte Bobcats fall apart these last few weeks has been like seeing Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez on the kiss cam; you want to look away but you just can’t. The Bobcats fell to the Knicks last night in Charlotte 104-84. Ending the season with a 23-game losing streak, the Bobcats sealed their place as the worst team in league history with a 7-59 record and a winning percentage of just .106.
What could cause this dismal record? All teams had to deal with a packed-in schedule due to the shortened season this year, but I’m pretty sure they all made it to double digits in the win column. And Thursday’s game wasn’t’ even close! You would think the Bobcats would play 200 percent in order to avoid the stigma of being the worst team ever. Then again, it takes a special kind of bad to lose more than 20 games in a row.
Bobcats’ owner Michael Jordan said he knew it would be a rebuilding year, but I’m sure he never thought it could be this bad. One thing is for sure, he is going to have to shoot a lot of Hanes commercials to pay for some better players next season.
