The Jason Spezza Discussion

I was planning on writing a full-fledged article about Jason Spezza and the possible trade scenarios the Ottawa Senators have this Summer until the Nilsen Report staff  had the classic “Jason Spezza Discussion” over Facebook last night. There always seems to be different rumours ever year regarding Spezza, to recap here is your Spring 2014 edition of stories circling the web. Nick Kypreos: Sources say the Senators are shopping Jason Spezza to Western conference teams. Bruce Garrioch: Unlike Phaneuf, the return for Jason Spezza would be similar to a deadline rental: a NHLRead More

This is another great gag from Jimmy Fallon, along the same lines as the Matt Harvey prank Fallon pulled on Mets fans. The setup here is pretty simple.A producer gets Yankees fans on the street to boo a large picture of Robinson Cano and after they boo and turn back to the camera, the producer tells them to give it one more try.   When they turn back around, the actual Robinson Cano is standing there. It’s great.The reactions to Cano are priceless—”listen, about that, right, here’s what happened”—but someRead More

AAC Basketball Tournament - Championship
1 Wichita State vs. 16 Cal Poly The undefeated Shockers have the top seed in the region known as the “group of death.” They are the first team to enter the tournament undefeated since UNLV in 1991 and will attempt to become the first team to win the National Championship while going undefeated since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers. Suffice to say, history is not on their side. It’s easy to forget that Wichita St. was in last year’s Final Four and were even up double digits midway through the secondRead More

1 Arizona vs. 16 Weber State loss of Brandon Ashley certainly hurt the Wildcats, who were #1-ranked for much of the season before losing the star forward for the remainder of the year. However, this has caused coach Sean Miller to play more guys throughout the season, which is a major positive for a team that lacks depth. Nick Johnson and TJ McConnell make up probably the best backcourt in the country through strong defense, a great pass-first point guard in McConnell, and a scoring guard in Johnson. In aRead More

1 Virginia vs. 16. Coastal Carolina Virginia has had an extremely impressive season winning the ACC regular season and tournament titles over the likes of Duke, Syracuse, and North Carolina. Not at all surprised to see the Cavaliers get the 1-seed after Michigan, Wisconsin, Villanova, and Kansas all faltered in their conference tournaments. Virginia is one of very few teams in the tournament that is great on both sides of the floor, leading the country in scoring defense and are ranked 7th in field goal percentage defense. On offense, theyRead More
