Okay, I'll try to re-enter the world of half-assed sports blogging now that my first year of coaching high school tennis is over. There are many things about which I could write at this juncture in history, but nothing amazes me more than some of the selections in this year's 1st Round of the NFL Draft. Here are the 32 selections and my corresponding opinion:
Matthew Stafford (Lions): I think they got the pick right, but I hope Stafford makes it out alive.
2 Jason Smith OT (Rams) The Rams drafted the wrong Smith here.
3 Tyson Jackson DE (Chiefs) I was big on Jackson last year, but he was unremarkable in his final season at LSU. I think his physical assets make him a solid pick, though.
4 Aaron Curry OLB(Seahawks) Everyone says he's awesome, so I guess he's awesome????
5 Mark Sanchez QB-Great pick with Namath-like starpower.
6 Andre Smith OT (Bengals) Obviously a great pick, even with the titflaps.
7 Darrius Heyward-Bey WR (Raiders) Crabtree, Nicks and Harvin are far better players.
8 Eugene Monroe OT (Jaguars) Should be a good pick.
9 B.J. Raji DT (Packers)Beast mode alert!!!
10 Michael Crabtree WR 49ers Great Pick! Seriously so!
11 Aaron Maybin DE Bills I can't tell exactly how I feel about Maybin. He shot up his senior year but seems to be a bit of a risk at the 11 spot.
12 Knowshon Moreno RB Denver... I don't get how a 4.6 200 lb. rb can get drafted this high. Also, this was a totally unecessary pick
13 Brian Orakpo DE Redskins Orakpo could be a steal here or a total bust. He definitely has the strength, but he was also underimpressive at times last season. I like the pick, though.
14 Malcolm Jenkins DB- The Saints continue to construct The Great Wall of Shit that is the secondary.
15 Brian Cushing OLB Solid pick.
16 Larry English DE Chargers
17 Josh Freeman QB Buccaneers This is probably the second worst pick of the first round.
18 Robert Ayers DE Broncos He's a stretch that high.
19 Jeremy Maclin WR Eagles Should really help solidify that receiving corps.
20 Brandon Pettigrew TE Lions The Lions cannot go through the first round without drafting some type of receiver, can they? I don't know why tight ends are first round selections, and Ingram could end up being a better pro.
21 Alex Mack C Browns
22 Percy Harvin WR Vikings Great pick. Now, if the Vikes had a qb...
23 Michael Oher OT Ravens Should be a great addition to Baltimore. Seemingly awesome guy with an awesome story.
24 Peria Jerry DT Falcons Hell fuck yeah!
25 Vontae Davis DB Dolphins
26 Clay Matthews OLB Packers
27 Donald Brown RB Colts I really like this pick. I think he'll flourish here.
28 Eric Wood C Bills 86
29 Hakeem Nicks WR Giants 89 The Giants needs to fill the hole left by Plax, and Nicks may be the man to do it. Amazing in college, to say the least.
30 Kenny Britt WR Titans Hmmmmm???? I dunno about this one.
31 Chris Wells RB Cardinals Wells should be a productive NFL back and possibly a star with the right amount of touches.
32 Evander Hood DT Steelers This guy must be good. The Steelers always draft well. Missouri's defense last year, however, was abysmal.

Now that I'm a coach, I don't know shit about sports

If you notice I haven't been blogging, it may have to do with the fact that I'm entrenched enough in coaching a high school sport that I barely know what is going on in any other area of the athletic world. And I coach girls tennis. Actually, I love girls tennis. The rallies can be great, the practices can be, at times uplifting, the matches are usually pretty close and the players are all similarly sized headcases as I was in my teens. Here are a few highlights and lowlights of my experience thus far:
1) Winning my first-ever match as a coach
2) Lowlight: going 0-4 after the initial match.
3) Finally getting really nice uniforms ordered and the team outfitted
4) Lowlight: The rejection of almost ever team uniform available, including the Nike border skirt every other team wears.
5)Watching my 3-20 players improve.
6)Lowlight: Having to wait for more improvement.
7)Realizing I have to tell girls NOT to let the ball hit them.
8)Lowlight: Going 0-3 against in-county rivals. We lost to one team 3-2 twice.
9)Lowlight:Actually hearing myself say, "IF you hanf out at that "T," you won't be playing doubles for this team any more, followed by telling a boys player not to say "Good job," when our girls lost a first set tiebreak after being up 3-0.
10:Calling out one of my players for supposedly listing "Mary Jane" as her best friend on Myspace.
11:Lowlight: Trying to get my players to deal with bad calls effectively, except for aforementioned player who is pretty much immune to the guilt one could associate with making bad calls.
12: Lowlight: Possibly setting a World Record for the fastest team loss in the history of the world. 18 minutes is really fast.
13: highlight: Day to day, all is awesome in the coaching world. I've learned tons about the game from coaching, and oh, yeah, I got my groundstrokes back in the process.

Knuck if U Buck, Hoe!

I think Lil Scrappy may be hosting the Alabama high school boys basketball state tourney this year. This brawl is pretty raw, to say the least. Carver-Montgomery and Valley get their weight up to what may involve a double forfeit in the 2nd round of the state basketball tourney. Notice all the red shirts near the end of the brawl. Which team wears red unis? Oh yeah, the one called the bloods. Watch video of previously mentioned brawl here.
