    Usually all-star games aren't my forte, but this year's NBA all-star game is looking good. I would most definitely be attending the game, if it wasn't for it being relocated from North Carolina last year. That was quite a mess. Now the game will be played at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

    All the familiar NBA superstars will be in attendance to the all-star game, but this new year will bring new blood. Both the Eastern conference and the Western conference will host two new players each. The West is welcoming Gordon Hayward and DeAndre Jordan, while the East will have Kemba Walker and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

    Another thing I am super excited for, is The Roots will be debuting their basketball themed musical, 'The Evolution Of Greatness' before the game. The musical is said to trace the legacy of the National Basketball Association, and the impact is has had on American culture.

    The game starts on Sunday, February 19, at 8 p.m. ET. Though the The Roots and other shows will begin beforehand, so make sure to tune in early.

    I actually have seen a few headlines the past couple days. They all say the both McGregor, and Mayweather "have agreed to fight terms". Obviously implying that they have taken an enormous step forward. But I am going to call bs on it. First of all, the handfull of articles all seem to quote each other. And it seems like the source isn't really known to investigate their leads. Secondly, in each of the articles it quotes, "nothing is signed yet". If nothing is signed yet.... there is absolutely no deal to even speak of. Anyone remember Mayweather vs. Pac? Mayweather's people strung out the paperwork on that for years.... years. I can't even begin to imagine what kind of signing he would want McGregor to do.

    So not only do I not see the fight happening any time soon, I honestly don't see it happening at all. Mayweather has more money than he knows what to do with. I just can't see him coming out of retirement to fight someone who could very, very well beat him. The only other reason for him to fight, would be his pride. And right now he can talk all he wants because he is the "champ". I assume he keep it at that.

    This definitely would be the largest PPV fight in history. I would imagine in bother viewers, and money. Both fighters would earn in the triple million digits. But other than that, I got burned on the Pac vs. Mayweather fight. I'm not going to be doing that again, at least not through PPV.

    The New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl 51. The game went into over-time with a final score of 34 - 28. This marks a record setting 5th Super Bowl win for Tom Brady, and 5 super nice rings to go with them. And even though I don't care much for Brady or Belichick, that is a remarkable accomplishment.

    Some are saying this is one of the most impressive comebacks they have ever seen. But I disagree. Even though the Patriots were way down in the first half, I know Brady well enough to not sleep on him. Not once did I get too excited that my prediction for the Falcons to win would come true. Brady performs under stress. No secret there. So to say it's such a crazy comeback is a bit of a stretch. I'd say it's more of a hobby for the Pats at this point.

    Good on you, Patriots. You deserve it.

    The New England Patriots will face off against the Atlanta Falcons, today in Super Bowl 51. Though this isn't the outcome I (or most others) would have expected it to be, I am super excited for it. Obviously the main showdown I am looking forward to is Tom Brady vs. Matt Ryan. It's always fun to think about it in a way as simple as that. QB vs. QB. I am going to give this win to Ryan and the Falcons. Even though the big dogs in Vegas are leaning much more towards a Patriots victory. Last checked, it was around 62% in favor of the Pats. Well it's game day! So we will find out soon!

    This is pretty clever on their part. They'll be able to feature the Super Bowl Champions, the score, any cool game replays, and whatever else goes along with that.

    On a related note, I saw that the NFL is releasing their new GoPro style helmet camera for the SB. It's mounted right on the players face grill. That should also be some awesome footage.

    The Australian Open was just an all around great tournament this year. There were two matchups that everyone wanted to see. And we absolutely got them. Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal, winning 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 in three hours and 38 minutes. Might I add, after dramatically turning round the fifth set break down. This is Federer's 18th Grand Slam title. That's quite amazing.

    Serena Williams beat out Venus Williams to win her 7th Australian Open championship. That is also extremely impressive. The match ended in a 6-4, 6-4 victory over her sister. This is Serena's 23rd Grand Slam title.

    Serena later said, "There's no way I could be at 23 without her. Thank you Venus for inspiring me to be the best player I can be."

    Congrats to the both of you! You deserve it.

    Also, besides who you want to win, who do you think will win? Which team would you put your bet on?

    I am 100% rooting for the Falcons to win the SB. I am quite tired of Brady, and very tired of Belichick. If I were betting on this matchup, I'd go for Atlanta to win. And I don't think it'll be quite as dramatic as the two championship games were. But I do see them winning by at least 2 TD's. I don't really have specifics to back that up with. But when you're dealing with two teams that dominated like they did, I'd say it'll come down to which team wants it more. That drive alone will be key to this SB.

    Falcons all the way!!

    Curious why you think that? I think he is one of the most deserving. But so is Matt Ryan. Plus Rodgers has already been. Ryan has been really good to great for years now. Lots of bad losses in the playoffs for him. Glad he made it through this time.

    I thought that game was going to be a lot more competitive too.

    "One of the most deserving" is definitely a better way to put it. I guess me being a Packers fan sways my opinion towards Rodgers.

    The Atlanta Falcons are headed to the second Super Bowl appearance in their franchise history, after beating the Packers 44-21. I can honestly didn't see that coming whatsoever, nor did anyone else I know. My bet was for the Packers to win by a field goal.... But no. They were demolished by the Falcons.

    Falcons QB, Matt Ryan showed out with a total of 4 TD's thrown, including a 73 yard run by Julio Jones. They were just the better team tonight. No doubt about it. The Packers seemed to have not shown up at all. They were overtaken in almost every aspect through the majority of the game.

    Though Rodgers' numbers didn't look too bad, with a total of 234 yards and 3 TD's. But man, numbers are just numbers. I should also mention that I desperately wanted the Aaron Rodgers in the Super Bowl this year. He deserves it more than any other QB in the game right now.

    So now the Falcons will face off against either New England or Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Houston.
