Tulowitzki & Toronto destroy Philadelphia

The MLB trade deadline is less than 48 hours away and the Blue Jays still need a starting pitcher. Everybody knows that, even Jose Bautista. Still, how can you argue with the logic that ‘a run scored is just as good as a run prevented’? At least that’s the approach Blue Jays management is taking with the blockbuster trade that landed Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies. In his debut, #Tulo helped an explosive Jays offense with a 2-run home run and an RBI in an 8-2 win over the Phillies. Impressive. I looked forward to seeing him do some damage in an already dangerous Jays lineup. Now, about that pitcher.

Your thoughts on the ESPYS?

It was an entertaining show to say the least. As a 20 year Patriots fan, I was glad to see Gronkowski win comeback player of the year. That being said, I feel Malcom Butler was robbed by Odell Beckham for the Best Play award. Say what you want about that play call, but Malcom’s interception was not only a game-winning play, it secured their fourth Super Bowl. Yes Odell Beckham made a great play, but Malcom Butler’s interception was way more clutch. I am probably being biased towards #patsnation so I digress.

I was also disappointed that Floyd Mayweather wasn’t in attendance. I really wanted to see the look on his face after Ronda Rousey won Best Fighter.

The Alex Rodriguez segment with Ken Jeung was a little bit humorous, but mostly annoying and confusing. Brittany Spears and JJ Watt? What were the writers smoking? There was too much shameless promotion for ABC, as well as ESPN. It felt more like a celebrity roast than a sports awards show, and most of the jokes weren’t even funny.

Now let’s get to the subject everyone really wants to talk about. Bruce, er I mean Caitlyn Jenner. I thought it was courageous and everything was very well-said and true. It was a good speech. However, I thought ESPN spent a little too much time on this, trying to capitalize on the media coverage and publicity. Smart business move, but it definitely took away from the athletes spotlight.

That being said, it was entertaining enough to watch on a night when Major League Baseball was on All Star break.

Terminator Genisys Review

terminator-genisys

I’ll start off by saying, I liked this movie. I’m not sure why it got terrible reviews and stunk up the box office it’s opening week. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. I don’t think I’m alone in saying I’ve been waiting a long time for Arnold to come back to the franchise. Granted, it took a few years and a nasty divorce from Maria Shriver to get him back to the silver screen. At least they embraced the fact that he has aged in the movie. They poked fun at this numerous times, which I thought was clever. One scene in particular I thought was awesome, without spoiling too much, is when Arnold goes back in time and fights himself. He is battling his naked jacked up self from the first movie. Very cool. Perhaps critics didn’t like the fact that this movie had more comedic relief than past Terminator films. I didn’t mind it. Like I said, I enjoyed this movie and would recommend to anybody who is a fan of Arnold, or just a good action movie in general.

Old, but not obsolete.
