Now that the calendar has turned and we are now into the Month of August, it felt that the time is right for the next round of Sports Brain seepage, because as we have seen over the last few weeks, there have been a lot of things happening within the sports world. But never fear, we are just inching closer and closer to football season with each passing day and that is what matters the most. Once we hit football season then we will not have to worry as much about the other things.
A couple weeks ago we got the news we so wanted to hear, the lock out came to an anti-climactic ending and now we have seen teams rush into training camp, But one of the comical things that we have seen is the rushed and hurried free agent period. There have been some surprises, and some things that just didn’t make sense. Last week, it looked like the Dallas Cowboys had all but wrapped up the biggest free agent in the fray and out of nowhere, the Philadelphia Eagles landed Nnamdi Asomugha. But as far as any other real splashes in free agency that is the only real one that made any waves. Now that we are heading towards an NFL season, fans can finally get giddy with excitement.
Randy Moss is Retireing:
It just came out over the last few hours today that one of the most polarizing figures in football and one of the best receivers of all time is going to retire. It seems surprising that the news broke and there was no fan fare about it, he just had his agent put out a statement saying that he was going to quit football and pursue other things in his life. Randy Moss will go down as one of the best of all time, it is only ashamed that he had to be so polarizing in the early days of his career and made a few bad decisions that will follow him around. But in the end, he will end up being in the Hall of Fame, he has the numbers that are deserving.
Just when we finally got rid of the NFL lock out, we have to start hearing about the NBA lock out now. But unlike the NFL, this lockout can last as long as it wants to because the NBA as a whole is nowhere near as popular as the NFL, and for the average sports fan who watches anything and everything, they won’t lose any sleep over missing a season of NBA basketball. The only people this will hurt are the players, owners and die hard fans of the NBA. Plus any college seniors that will be playing this season, they will have to hope they have an NBA to look forward too. While that is far off in the distance, it is probably going to last for a long time and kids who want to go pro will have a decision to make. I am sure there will be more news to break on this, but at least for the time being, it looks like a whole group of NBA stars will start tearing up the Basketball leagues throughout Europe to pass the time.
