Slam Jam Bam BAYBEE!!!!

By Dan DiLoreto | February 14, 2009

In honor of tonight’s slam dunk contest I have assembled a list of the ten greatest dunkers of all time. These High Flyers defy gravity as they bring us some of the most explosive slams in the history of dunking. As with every list, some worthy gentlemen will be left off the list and debate…

North Carolina vs. Duke Preview

By Dan DiLoreto | February 11, 2009

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4fDk0aV4rA&hl=en&fs=1] Tonight is the best night of college basketball. Tonight is the Tobacco Road Rivalry. Tonight Psycho T and Dancin’ Danny Green attempt to go 4-0 at Cameron Indoor Stadium. They will be the first players to do so since my arch rival Tim Duncan did it while playing for Wake Forest. North Carolina got…

A-Rod or A-Fraud?

By Dan DiLoreto | February 9, 2009

A Guest Post by John Candy… The answer to that question might actually now be A-Roid. With the recent news outbreak alleging baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez to a positive steroid test in 2003, baseball has taken yet another black eye. This news just adds to the already long developing list linking superstar baseball players to…

And the Winner is…

By Dan DiLoreto | February 9, 2009

Well, the poll has closed and we have a winner by a very close margin. It seems as though most of Thunder Nation would love nothing more than to punch ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith directly in the throat. I could not be happier with the results of this poll and it is refreshing to know…

Let's Castrate David Stern

By Dan DiLoreto | February 7, 2009

The NBA’s never-ending quest to make LeBron James feel unappreciated in Cleveland, so that he might someday seek greener pastures in the Big Apple, has taken on an entirely different twist. The first injustice was inflicted upon Mo Williams not once, but twice, while the second was the demotion of perhaps the greatest regular season…

Welcome Class of 2009!

By Dan DiLoreto | February 4, 2009

I know I can speak for most of us here at Thunder Treats when I say Welcome Class of 2009! Wednesday we welcomed in a new class of Buckeyes, 25 in total with 14 coming from the buckeye state. We didn’t have the one big name recruit like last year but players like Jamaal Berry,…

All Star Weekend

By Dan DiLoreto | February 3, 2009

The NBA has just released the roster for its 2009 All Star Game. I have to say that out of the three major sports the NBA does its All Star game the best, from the rookie sophomore game to the three point/dunk contest the hole all star weekend is great and I enjoy watching the…

And the winner is…

By Dan DiLoreto | February 2, 2009

Well the Results are in and The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels wins last weeks poll “Who was the best WWF/WWE Champion of our lifetime?” Now I know some people disagree and were upset that some names were left off the list. The Undertaker and Mankind were arguments I heard from some people, but these are…

By Dan DiLoreto | February 1, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 weeks or you’re a resident of Southern California than you probably know that the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Arizona Cardinals in tonight’s Super Bowl. As of this morning, the odds makers in Las Vegas have the Cardinals as 7-point underdogs in Super Bowl…

T.O. has B.O.

By Dan DiLoreto | January 27, 2009

Do you know what really stinks? Other than how offensive Terrell Owens body odor is… VH1 has announced that Terrell Eldorado Owens, thats right Eldorado, will have his own reality television show. The Terrell Owens Project will air in the summer of 2009. Unfortunately, not only do we have to listen to this cancer from…

Mangini & Kokinis…Godspeed.

By Dan DiLoreto | January 27, 2009

I’ve been thinking for a few days about I feel (and should feel) about Eric Mangini and George Kokinis, and still haven’t come to a solid conclusion. It’s only fair to look at this front office pairing after stepping back and trying to remove emotions from the equation. Sure, we all would’ve loved to have…

**TRADE PREDICTION**

By Dan DiLoreto | January 26, 2009

I’m pulling this one of my ass, unless it comes true, in that case I’m a god damn genius. Two disappointments of the 2008 season, The Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns are about to join forces in an attempt to not suck this year. Two new coaches in town this year that can’t look any…

With the First Pick in the 2009 NFL Draft…

By Dan DiLoreto | January 25, 2009

Mel Kiper may lose his job this year with continuing to publish 37 mock drafts within the few months leading up to the April draft and still only getting 40% of the top 10 correct yet continues to sit on national television acting like he is a professional guru at this stuff and getting paid…

Playoffs?!?!?!?!?!

By Dan DiLoreto | January 21, 2009

Everyone is aware that President Obama has strong feelings about a playoff system in college football. Will he make it happen is yet to be seen. Below is a direct quote from Obama’s inaugural address yesterday: “…………we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Is Barack…
