I can't believe Barbaro is gone


I was just talking to my bf last night about Barbaro's condition. And as soon as I wake up, I found out he's been put to rest. What made me even more mad was ESPN. They didn't even have him on the front page of their website for the whole weekend, probably knowing his dire condition. Thank goodness for SI, right?! Anyways, I'm totally sad. It's true the huge amount of public interest surrounding him pushed everyone in his camp to try and fix him instead of euthanizing Barbaro way back when. He didn't even live lone enough to hit the anniversary of his Kentucky Derby win. And Barbaro will never have little Barbies and Baros running all over the place. He should have really been reproducing before this all happened. I'm still in shock. (Pic courtesy of SI.com).

Knowles "Dereon" to Outfit Nets Dancers


The New Jersey Nets dancers are going to be the best dressed in the NBA very soon. Thanks to their new designer, Tina Knowles. It was reported on Page Six of the New York Post that Jay-Z and Beyonce's mother have agreed Dereon will be the offical sponser for the 16 ladies. Thank God for this much needed wardrobe change. Hopefully this will pave the way to better looking outfits on NBA dancers. The current look of leather, torn-up shirts, shimmery sports bras and butt-hugging spandex shorts are just horrible. After the new outfits are debuted, people wont be waiting until halftime to hit the snack bar. And women (who care about fashion, sports or just Beyonce) are going to breakout their Thomas guides and head to Continental Airlines Arena. (pic courtesy of the hoopsvibe.com).

Best story of 2007: Boise State & Johnson


After Boise State defeated Oklahoma in a dramatic comeback in overtime, BSU running back Ian Johnson proposed to his girlfriend, Chrissy. Now thats what I call an eventful season and a great way to "ring" in the New Year. I bet every girl who saw Johnson propose on TV ate it up and secretly wish to be proposed to in similar fashion one day. Sigh.

New Year of ME

I haven't written in a LONG TIME. I knew I hadn't, but after talking to my Edwin about blogging, I knew I had to get back on the ball. Whats happened since I've been gone? My Cal Bears and my twin's USC Trojans won their respective bowls: The Holiday and Rosebowl. The A's Barry Zito signed a fatty contract with who else to my surprise, but those GIANTS! God! I couldn't believe it. Zito looked so good in gold and green and now I have to watch him in halloween colors. How weird. There are only two good things that come out of this: he doesn't have to move since he'll be just 30-40 minutes away from his old stadium and I can still watch him across the bay. I can't believe "My Boys" is a hit with the mass audiences of America. I guess the whole friendship between P.J. and her guy friends got to them or her ongoing "thing" with her fellow sportswriter. Girls can be stuck on the relationships and drama between people. Which is fine, since they don't care about her career as a female sportswriter, which is the reason I tuned in and out after one episode. Alright, enough for now. Oh! one last thing, Tiger Woods is gonna be a daddy?! Wow. The best entertainment stories on athletes can't be found on espn.com ... but people.com. Who knew? Only a tabloid fen like me would. hehehe. I'm back!
