|The photobomb (left) that made BP the "World's Worst Person in Sports." |
Brandon, please keep on smiling and having fun.
Of course he is smart to pick on Phillips. Phillips has a huge following on twitter and anyone who knows anything about the new social media marketplace - the way to pick up viewers and followers is to piggy back on someone who has a huge following. Insert Brandon Phillips here - rant about DatDude and then pick up some viewers for your fledgling television show. Of course Olbermann didn't take a closer look at Brandon Phillips who has been an iron man on the Reds roster since he took over at second base in 2006. Phillips played in a 151 games last year and even gutted out the end of the season when he was visibly injured. In fact the fewest games BP has played in since joining the Reds is 141 in 2008. Check out BP's career stats here http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=408252#gameType='R'§ionType=career&statType=1&season=2014&level='ALL'
I don't always like some of Phillips' antics but he is a gamer. And I didn't like his comments in Cincinnati Magazine last year. But he doesn't take days off because a tough pitcher is on the mound. He plays injured. He makings dazzling plays in the infield. He practically finishes every game he plays in with a dirt stained uniform. He will bat anywhere in the lineup. He battles his way through slumps and still acts like he enjoys playing this kids' game. While some players appear to look like zombies out there because it make hurt their "professional" personae DatDude still plays the game with flare and joy. If that makes BP the "World's Worst Person in Sports," then so be it - I bet BP got a good laugh out of it.

Scott Klever is having a great baseball season at Xavier. But now he's making headlines off the field. Check out this cool story about Scott and the rest of the Xavier baseball team who decided to shave their heads in the battle against childhood cancer. http://www.goxavier.com/sports/m-basebl/spec-rel/041314aaa.html Here's another story that appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer http://www.cincinnati.com/story/xaviersports/2014/04/13/xu-baseball-players-shave-heads/7683635/

Michigan State basketball team and star forward Adreian Payne was told and re-told. This story came to a tragic end this week when Lacey finally lost her battle with cancer. This story has so many angles and one that would probably get lost in the shuffle is the maturation of Payne. He was an excellent high school player who played his school basketball in Dayton, Ohio but while at Michigan State he not only improved as a player but he became a symbol of a student-athlete in Tom Izzo's program. Great story - you need to check it out. http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/10754327/michigan-state-spartans-adreian-payne-mourning-loss-princess-lacey-cancer

ESPN.com's Eamonn Brennan touches on the topic on his blog.
"A bad call is a bad call whether it happens in the first minute or the 20th or the 40th. From a sheer mathematical perspective, every possession matters. So if expanded replay is necessary in the final minute, it's necessary throughout the game, isn't it? No wrong call should go unaddressed, should it?http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/60167/change-the-game-watching-the-watchmen
I can already hear the wailing: But the game already stops too much! College basketball games are already two hours long! No one wants to watch referees look at video replays for 40 minutes! The human element! Loud noises!
I agree! Which is why college hoops and the NBA need to drop the pretense that the only way to handle video review is to force the three assigned game officials to stop the game, walk over to the scorer's table, wait for the LCD screen to load its pretty pictures and spend the next 10 minutes deciding whether they're really seeing what they're seeing. The sport already has a workaround for this; it allows officials to correct live-action missed calls during eventual timeouts and other naturally occurring game stoppages. But why do those three referees need to review the monitor themselves? Why can't a fourth official -- or a team of officials, even -- be assigned to specifically handle video reviews as the action takes place?
The officials watch the action. The video team watches the officials. Live. In real time. As quickly as the announcers can weigh in, and as quickly as you can hammer out that clever tweet slamming the zebras for another bad call, the video team can review said call and almost instantly signal whether there is significant evidence to overturn it. There is no reason to stop the game to do so."
