Rams going with white horns on helmets for 2017 season is a mistake

The Los Angeles Rams have the right idea. They’re just approaching it wrong.

The team announced that they will be eliminating gold from their white pants and will introduce those new pants in a fan vote. Much like last season, they will go with the white jersey and white pants look at home for all of the 2017 season. In addition to this change, the Rams announced that they are eliminating the gold horns and replacing it with white horns. Fans can choose which face mask will be used.

With these changes, the Rams are evoking memories of their white and blue look from their first years in Los Angeles. I am for this change and I cannot wait for them to full adopt the design. However, due to NFL rules, teams cannot make any major changes to their jerseys unless five years have passed.

The JaVale McGee and Shaq beef is stupid

When Shaq started clowning JaVale McGee for his lowlights, I was OK with it. After all, if McGee did something dumb, I was fine with Shaq pointing it out. But last night’s beef was too much.

McGee did not do anything to warrant a huge mock trailer from Shaq. There was no reason to attack McGee, who has been playing way better this year.

Am I OK with the Warriors reaching out to Turner? I’m on the fence. One, it shouldn’t be their problem. But secondly, this is a bully mentality and it’s not right.

The Twitter beef between the two has escalated and I am sure this won’t end unless Turner or the NBA punishes either or both men.

This is all childish.

The NFL Twitter account has gone “nuts”

Nobody on the social media team realized what they were doing.

Late Thursday night and early Friday morning it was brought to my attention that the tweet above was getting a lot of retweets and likes. It also was being featured in articles by many major sites across the web. This story started circulating even though the supposed error was already fixed.

Oakland A’s pitcher Sonny Gray lets fans decide what jersey he’ll wear for his start

With the A’s starting their second half of the MLB season at home against the Twins, starting pitcher Sonny Gray asked fans on Twitter what jersey he should wear.

Starting pitchers usually get to decide what jersey the team would wear for their starts. The A’s this season have three options for home games: White, gold or green.

The fans responded to Gray on Twitter with the majority siding with gold.

Oakland A’s are ready for some midnight madness

I’ve never heard of a baseball game starting that close to midnight. Or maybe it’s a long 13-hour wait. But it sounds like a great promotion!

Cavaliers fan tries to prove that Derrick Rose’s game-winning shot should not have counted

One of the best things about Twitter is reading tweets from fans who have conspiracy theories or can’t accept reality. Following Derrick Rose’s game-winner against the Cavs, I saw this tweet from a Cavs fan trying to prove that the inbound took too long. I found this very funny.

Of course, the first mistake here was that the timer started when the whistle blew, not when the inbounder received the ball. Clearly this fan doesn’t know the rules. The whistle only means that the game is resuming, not to start the clock.

Also, the five-second rule can’t be precise. It actually is on the discretion of the referee who is making the count. And if you look at the referee, he is at about 4.75 (give or take) in his count.
