8:30 PM Anderson County (TN) High School QB Tyler Hicks, who recovered from a serious brain injury he suffered in 2012, was presented with the first Will McKamey Spirit Award on Thursday. The award is named in honor of a Navy football player who died after collapsing during practice last March.
(Did Odom propose to this woman weeks before marrying Khloe?)
If you’ve driven around Los Angeles the past few years, you’ve probably seen billboards for the “Petros and Money Show“, a popular sports radio show on KLAC-AM and syndicated nationally on Fox Sports Radio. Petros Papadakis and Matt “Money” Smith have also filled in many times on Jim Rome’s national radio show and appeared on Rome’s ESPN-TV Show Rome Is Burning.
Smith is also a former Lakers radio host. Over the past four years, he hosted all of the Lakers pregame and postgame shows, did some play-by-play of the games and occasionally traveled with the team.
Needless to say, he’s been very close to the Lakers organization during that time, so I take very seriously the bombshell Smith dropped on his radio show yesterday about Lamar Odom. Read more…
If you still think Twitter hasn’t changed sports media dramatically, the train has officially left without you. Witness Reggie Bush during the USC-San Jose State telecast yesterday on Fox Sports West TV:
(It’s time to play The Feud, Trojan fans!)
Most of you are probably like Larry Fitzgerald on this, so if you don’t who Papadakis is and/or why Bush would say such an inflammatory thing about a fellow former Trojan, I can help. (I assure you there’s much more to this story than what happened yesterday.)
First, what exactly did Papadakis say during the USC-San Jose State telecast that made Bush upset enough to Tweet his disdain for the former USC football captain to his 230,000 Twitter followers?
That brings us to today, and I’ve got yet another wrinkle to Glazer’s reportage on #4.
Earlier this week, I was listening to one of my favorite shows on radio, hosted by Petros Papadakis and Matt “Money” Smith on Fox Sports Radio here in L.A.. Like all other sports radio hosts this week, the duo was burdened with once again having to pick at the rotting Favre-to-the-Upper-Midwest carcass. But during their analysis, Papadakis steered the topic off the well-worn road and presented a more intriguing question: Who was the Vikings’ lockerroom snitch who sold out Favre’s sign to Glazer?

Validating those of you out there who think the Ryder Cup is more dangerous than the NHL, it was reported on Tuesday night that St. Louis Blues defenseman Erik Johnson suffered what appears to be a season ending knee injury while golfing last week. The 20-year-old Johnson, one of the bright young defensive stars in the NHL, tore his ACL and MCL when his leg got caught between the gas pedal and brake pedal on his golf cart. If I was Johnson, I probably would’ve tried to pull a modified Monta Ellis and lie about it, and at least say I was wrestling a wild boar or something.
What’s the big secret to the 49ers’ 2-1 start? It might be this thing:
The creatively-named “Glove” is a newfangled contraption that is reportedly “billed as better than steroids without any ill effects.” It pulls blood into your palm and cools it down or something, I think. Whatever, this article from the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE should tell you all you need to know.
Q: Do you, Mr. Arenas, take this woman as your wife? A: Hibachi! (thank you WASHINGTON POST)
