The NBA Play of the Year

Murdoc may not approve of the honor I’m about to bestow upon his enemies, the Miami Heat…But they deserve it.

In last night’s game against the Pacers, Dwyane Wade grabbed a defensive rebound and proceeded to hurl the ball down nearly the entire length of the court. While his strength was certainly impressive, it’s his accuracy that has people talking. Wade connected with LeBron James at the other end of the court, and James ended the play with a beautiful finger roll off the backboard to score. It was, by far, the best play I’ve seen all season. Watch the vid below.

Sure, one might say that this doesn’t tell us anything about the strength of the Heat, or their ability to advance deep into the playoffs this year. But one thing’s for sure: they’re definitely starting to click as a team. And if they can keep it up, LeBron might finally get that championship he’s been waiting for.



“Maroon and Yellow”

In light of Lil Wayne’s “Green and Yellow,” Murdoc and I thought we’d give the rap game a try. Then we convinced 3rd to join the mix.

And “Maroon and Yellow” was born.

Check it out here, and tell your friends. Thanks for listening.


Murdoc is Picking the Steelers

I am taking the Pittsburgh Steelers as my final pick of the season. I do not have a clear image of who will win this game (if the game was outside I would not even consider the Packers) as I usually do, but here are my reasons for picking the Steelers:

1. Easiest way to beat the Packers is to disrupt Aaron Rodgers, which has been no secret the entire season. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers defense have had MORE than enough time (even if they watched the entire Pro Bowl) to create a game plan for getting to Rodgers.

2. Big Ben gets it done. It is not guaranteed to be pretty, but he has consistently found ways to win throughout his career.

3. Mike Tomlin is my X Factor. He never panics under the pressure of a big game. As a result, his team plays confident and relaxed.

4. The Packers have gotten this far with no-name running backs James Starks and John Kuhn who have played, in my opinion, above their potential. I think its time for these two guys to have a screw-up or two under the big and watchful eyes of the Super Bowl.

Hopefully this is an exciting game and my prediction comes true in the form of a dramatic loss for the Packers.


Lil Wayne Embarrasses the Packers

There’s been a lot of buzz this year about Wiz Khalifa and his Pittsburgh Steeler-inspired single “Black and Yellow.” Of course, once the Steelers reached the Super Bowl, the song’s popularity reached a new level.

Enter Lil Wayne.

For reasons known only to the man himself, Weezy found it necessary to record a cover (if you can call it that, it’s more a copy-and-paste of the original song with Packers references thrown in) called “Green and Yellow.” You can listen to it here. As you might expect, the song replaces Wiz’s affection for the Steelers with Weezy’s seemingly newfound support of the Packers–Wayne is from New Orleans, and in the past hasn’t been afraid to declare his allegiance to the Saints.

It’s time for some real talk. Weezy’s cover is terrible. Straight up terrible. Wait a minute…Perhaps the loser of the Super Bowl bet that Murdoc and I made in this week’s podcast should be forced to listen to “Green and Yellow” on repeat for an hour. That sounds like a good bet, right?

Good Lord, I hope I don’t lose…
