    Rookie of the year front-runner Lamelo Ball is going to face LeBron for the first time in his year. Ball is 19, and LeBron has been playing for 18 years - almost as long as Ball has been alive. To me, that would be very intimidating, especially if my brother who also plays in the NBA modeled his game after LeBron - which is the case for Ball. Instead of showing any sort of nervousness, he just said he didn't expect to feel any added excitement going against LeBron.

    "I go to every game with the same approach -- going in to try to get a win," he said.

    Even though, he said it will be "cool" to face LeBron. I guess he has his wits about him and isn't showing how nervous he really is. Can anyone else think of a similar situation that had an effect on a rookie's performance? Or, any highly anticipated rookie vs veteran face offs?

    I'm sure it was possible, but I never have actually seen it before. In most race cars, the steering wheel comes off. I'm sure many of you have seen it right before a driver jumps into the vehicle. I've just never seen and or noticed a victory burnout like this before. Kyle Larson seems to have patented a victory burnout in his own style - by taking the steering wheel off and holding it out the window. I guess I had never noticed it before until today. From what I've found out, he didn't start doing this when he came to NASCAR. He's been doing this since his open-wheel and dirt track days. Has anyone else seen something as crazy as this when it comes to victory laps or donuts before?

    Wow that's sad, but I understand why. I'd have to say the Lost Dog one. :)

    In the total dumpster fire that was the capital riot, there was an Olympian there. He stood out from the crowd because of his height, and was identified by the website SwimSwam as being Klete Keller. He was part of the mob that entered. This guy swam in three different Olympics and won gold in the 4x200m freestyle relays in both Athens and Beijing. What makes it worse was his choice of apparel - an officially-branded jacket that sported a United States Olympic Team Patch. He was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing law enforcement and illegally entering a restricted area, and released after an appearance in a federal court. Sources say he fell on hard times after the Olympics and was sleeping in his car after a divorce. I'm sad for him, and everyone makes thoughtless mistakes, but going to the riot, and then deciding to wear a Team USA Olympics brand jacket, is beyond me.

    What are your favorite Super Bowl ads with NFL players in them? I think an instant classic was NFL's '100-Year Game' one were they had dozens of players and coaches packed into one commercial.

    Ah man, you beat me to it. That was hands down, my favorite SB commercial with players in it. I think it's easily in my top 5 of Super Bowl ads, period.

    I'd say it's easily the Nets on this one.

    Really glad to see the Dallas Stars somewhere in there. :) But yeah, I think this list is pretty solid. I'd be saying differently if Tampa and Washington weren't in the top 5 at least.

    Yeah, I don't see how McGregor could lose this. He had ultimate advantage over Poirier physically and mentally. It always shocks me how much weight he can drop too. Looking lean and mean in that video.

    From what I've read, the whole dance with keeping or getting rid of Herman and has caused waves. That, paired with stuff like UT leaking to the media that Charlie Strong was getting the axe, means any coach taking that job is on shaky ground as far as job security goes. Which is understandable why they'd go with someone like Sakisian and not one of the more desirable candidates.

    It doesn't look like he'll make a huge impact on bringing back UT's program. His work with the Huskies after Willingham's awful stint was just okay. Then his stint at USC. He was let go during the middle of the second season. The main thing to point out is that both of his successors at UW and USC surpassed his achievements. So that doesn't make it seem like he'll put UT at the top of the Big 12.

    Agreed, he's sort of a wild card in my opinion. I believe he was let go from USC because he had a drinking problem. I hope he's doing well though, and he makes some good changes to the program.
