Former free agent Matt Garza has agreed to a 4 year, $50 million contract with the Milwaukee Brewers and all of those dollar bills are guaranteed. What is more interesting though, is the fact that about six weeks prior to the deal with the Brewers being signed, Garza was on an anniversary vacation with his wife when the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim came calling for his services.
The good Twitter is almost always balanced out with the bad Twitter. For instance, if you are on Twitter as much as I am, you will get your news faster than any website can update. You will be in the know at all times and probably learn a few things each day that you never did before. Unfortunately, that luxury comes at a price. Many of the more than 500 million Twitter users are what the internets like to call “trolls”. They comment on a person or subject in order to garner a response or spark controversy. Sometimes, it is more than that, though. Sometimes their Tweets are born from hate.
Back in the early 2000′s, there was a legend brewing at the University of Kentucky. The legend of the Pillsbury Throwboy, the Hefty Lefty, Jared Lorenzen. At 6’4″, 260 pounds, he wasn’t your typical Division I college quarterback.
At 6’4″, 320 pounds, he’s not your typical quarterback. Period.
However true that last statement is, the Northern Kentucky River Monsters are ignoring it to the best of their ability. That’s right, that White Vince Wilfork is actually Jared Lorenzen and he is actually playing quarterback.
Floyd Mayweather Claims He Did Not Bet $10 Million on the Super Bowl in the Most Floyd Mayweather Way Ever
Last week, multiple sites reported that Floyd Mayweather had placed a $10.4 million bet on the Denver Broncos. They claimed he used seven different casinos and four different off shore accounts. Many didn’t know what to think because the champ is known to bet exorbitant amounts on sporting events. Nothing in the $10 million range, but you never know.
Well Floyd put those rumors to rest after the game as only he could. Via his Instagram, he posted the message below to his nearly 2.3 million followers
Former middleweight champion boxer Kelly Pavlik collapsed in court on Friday just before noon. He was there for his pretrial hearing from a theft charge stemming from a September 2013 incident where he did not pay his $25 cab fee.
This Sunday, February 2nd, the NFL’s best offensive football team will take on the NFL’s best defensive team and it will leave gamblers scratching their collective heads. There really isn’t a correct answer when asked “who do you think will win”. Personally, I think it will be the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning because the iconic quarterback has been nothing but spectacular this season. Some of you think that while Manning has been spectacular, he has yet to see a defense that is anything like the Seattle Seahawks.
You all know what happened. A late fourth quarter comeback by the San Francisco 49ers was thwarted by Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after he swatted a would-be go ahead touchdown pass intended for Michael Crabtree. What happened after was Sherman patting Crabtree on the ass and saying something to him that made Crabtree shove him in the face and get a penalty.
What most of America assumed, especially after Sherman’s historic/epic/iconic post game interview with Erin Andrews, was that he had said something of the cocky, classless persuasion.
