How F’ing great was the finish of tonight’s game? This buzzer beater will probably make it into my top 5 favorites (nobody will ever dethrone Robert Horry’s three in the WCF vs. Sacramento). These kind of shots are why I still view Kobe as the better player than LeBron, because I’ve seen Kobe snatch the heart out of various teams with no time on the clock. If LeBron keeps this up he’ll really be the king of the NBA soon.
You’re out of jail now, please don’t be a fucking moron and get into trouble again like Pacman Jones. There are plenty of fans and football enthusiasts like myself who have argued in your defense countless times during the last 2 years and we would prefer if you didn’t put egg on our faces. If I wake up one morning and see a headline like “Vick Violates Probation” or “Vick caught with 12 pounds of marijuana in trunk”, I’m going to LOSE IT.
I know Sportaphile has been really boxing-centric recently, but I just want to let you guys know I haven’t forgotten about the NBA and NFL news. I *always* write about what interests me at the time, and sometimes the typical sports headlines of the day just don’t inspire me to write. But rest assured, I’ll get some NBA in soon.
Now on with this painting…. .isn’t it sick? Details about the painting can be found at the bottom of the post.
The image of Manny Pacquiao on the RingTV.com homepage was painted by Tyler Streeter, an emerging artist who greatly admires the sport of boxing. He began drawing and painting fighters at the age of 10 after watching Marvelous Marvin Hagler fight Sugar Ray Leonard. The chemistry between Tyler Streeter and the “Sweet Science” is evident in his paintings. Reflecting the beautifully sharpened minds and courageous hearts of these modern day warriors, Streeter brings to life the mental anguish and physical stamina unique to boxing. Streeter lives in Las Vegas. You can view his works at www.tylerstreeter.com.
