    "Only Cool People Use Puns" and Other Greatness from "Spurs Special Forces"

    Matt Hill has pulled together this bit of brilliance.

    If you grew up on The A-Team and enjoyed Los Spurs dismantling Los Heat in last year's NBA Finals, then this is worth the watch. Best laugh I've had all day.

    Also, 1 million pesos equals $67,971.03, if you wondering about the conversion.

    Thanks to SB Nation for picking this up.

    A tip of the cap to Walter Simpson for sending it my way.

    Please Don't Gloat

    Today marks the opening round of the first year College Football Playoff. It is also Bowl Season.

    I have an observation. It is not new, but it crystallized today in my mind. I was convicted.

    Gloating doesn't look good on anyone.

    Proverbs 24:17-18. Obadiah 1:12.

    Social media makes it easy to gloat.

    Some might say that a little earnest ribbing is all in good fun. But the more mature person will put such foolish talk aside, avoid the risk of harm, and, if words are spoken at all, they will be words of congratulation for the good an opponent has accomplished on the field.

    Gloating. Don't do it.

    My Weekend in Sport :: Baylor Advances, Sporting KC Wins, and Basketball History

    Baylor Advances

    My alma mater, Baylor University, advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.  Brady Heslip hit 9 three pointers in the Bears 80-63 victory over the 11th seeded Colorado Buffaloes.  That's insane.

    Sporting KC Wins

    I'm a season ticket holder for Sporting--in my opinion the best value and overall sports experience in Kansas City.  My wife was so kind to join me.

     

    We enjoyed every minute, but none more than this goal celebration by C. J. Sapong and Kei Kamara:

    Bracket Challenge and Basketball History

    Matt Williams is leading my bracket challenge at the moment out of 34 entries.  I'm tied for last.

    If you're a sports fans and have an interest in the history of basketball, you may enjoy "The Rules of the Game" from Grantland.com.  Jayson Jenks has done some great work.
