I bet Kurt Rambis didn't think this was going to happen
So one of the top prospects that Kurt Rambis was banking on for the 2009-2010 NBA season will no longer be a top prospect. In fact he will not be a part of the NBA next season or even few seasons to come. According to the 19 year old brain surgeon Ricky Rubio, this move is too risky. He is in fact, correct. Kurt Rambis is going to be the coach. Enough said. When push came to shove last year and Phil couldn't make it to a game or ten, Rambis didn't step of to the plate. Now he's going to be up in Minnesota without his support team of coaches, family and friends. And the Timberwolves staff wonders why this kid doesn't want to leave SPAIN and play in Minneapolis?
So sorry for jumping right into it but I was listening to this story this morning and just laughing my ass off. It's been a while since I have been able to blog as I've been MIA for the past 5 days. As noted in my previous entry I was able to attend a Yankee's game and it was great. We had amazing seats - second row behind home plate (hence the picture I left for everyone and thank you to Uncle Modell) and it felt right at home as Jack Nicholson and Paul McCartney sat in the seats right in front of me. Yankees went onto win and we went onto the Hamptons. My vacation was fully loaded only to come back to the start of the college football season.
In a blink of an eye, college football is a little more than 24 hours away and I'm besides myself. When it was April I knew this was going to be a long summer but now that we are in the second day of September and a day away from kick off I don't know what to do with myself. It's really here and these are my predictions:
BCS Champion: I'd like to say Florida because everyone else has. So I'm going to go with Texas. Let's also talk after the home opener of USC. I really gotta see these guys play. I'll have an answer before the Ohio game.
Surprise teams: Notre Dame, Stanford, Cal, Ol Miss (even though that won't be too much of a surprise)
Surprise teams from the heart: LSU, Arizona
Upset: LSU defeats Florida, Ohio State defeats USC (pending)
And in conclusion, Andre Smith got what he deserved by holding out - fractured foot, out a couple of weeks.
