Hump Day Thoughts On Sports & Stuff – 2/25/15

Hey all. Steve here. Look at that…two weeks in a row for the Hump Day article! Next week we will call it a streak. Let’s get right into it this week.

Dez Bryant video

Minnesota Vikings  v Dallas Cowboys

Is there one or isn’t there one? Adam Schefter is saying there is and if he says there is one then I am going to believe him. Reports like him don’t just offer up information unless it is credible. If he said the Cowboys were moving to Antartica, I would believe him. Actually, that is not such a bad idea. Getting back to the subject at hand. If the rumors are true and this video contains Bryant punching a woman in Walmart, it is going to be absolutely devastating for him. Remember how Goodell was vilified for not giving a harsh enough punishment to Ray Rice? It would be time for him to make up for that and use Bryant as an example. There are two ways for me to think about this. On one hand the NFL would lose an absurdly talented wide receiver for a long time. On the other hand, he plays for the Cowboys and THEY would be without one of the top wide receivers in the league. Which weighs more for me? Definitely, the fact that the Cowboys would be losing him. I am a Giants fan just in case you have been living under a rock or are just new to the site. If it is the latter, then I humbly welcome you! As for this story, I am sure we will find out for sure over the next couple of days and boy will it be explosive!

Derrick Rose

Ugh. Here we go again. This guys knees just won’t allow him to have an NBA career. This time it is his right meniscus and will require surgery. This is now more of an annual story and I don’t even want to think about how this is going to drag on after his rehab and the questions come up of when he will be back. Just shoot me now. I ALMOST would rather hear about Dwight Howard trade rumors. Almost.

LeBron Jr. getting college offers

You mean to tell me there is another one of these guys in the making? At least LeBron Jr. will go to college. LeBron thinks this should be against the rules, but there is nothing that says that college coaches can’t start looking at young players or offering scholarships. I guess I can understand where LeBron is coming from. He knows that the scholarship offers will still be there in a few years so telling them to back off now isn’t such a bad thing. Maybe LeBron Jr. will come to the Knicks.

Spring Training

Spring training games will start this weekend! Yes!!! All position players (except for Josh Hamilton who looks like he will be punished for something) have reported to camp and are ready to roll. While the rest of the country is dreaming of spring, I believe baseball actually helps them along. They get to at least see players in warm weather getting ready to play. The boys of summer are getting ready to go and every team has high expectations. Why not? There seems to be a team that goes from under .500 to the playoffs every season so everyone has hope.

Margot Robbie speaks about her audition for The Wolf of Wall Street

So how do you get a role as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in a major movie? You slap the hell out of him. Yes, you read that right. In a recent interview with Bazaar UK, she revealed exactly how it went. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

“In my head I was like, ‘You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don’t do something impressive nothing will ever come of it,’” the Australian actress recalls. ”‘It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it. And so I start screaming at him [Leo] and he’s yelling back at me. And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up. And he ends it saying, ‘You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now get over here and kiss me.’ So I walk up really close to his face and then I’m like, ‘Maybe I should kiss him. When else am I ever going to get a chance to kiss Leo DiCaprio, ever? But another part of my brain clicks and I just go, Whack! I hit him in the face. And then I scream, ‘Fuck you!’ And that’s not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze.”

She has got some balls and I appreciate that. Actually let’s clear that up a bit. I am not saying that Margot Robbie has balls. It is just a figure of speech. Look it up.

That’s all for this week. Some good stuff this week and I hope for some more athletes to do some dumb shit in the next week so I can talk about it next Hump Day! Have a great rest of your week and a great weekend!
