Fox Sports 1 personality Skip Bayless who is a Dallas Cowboys fan believes that Jerry Jones who is the owner and general manager of America’s Team will start Tony Romo when Week One when the 2017 regular football season will begin.Now I do remember Bayless who did a television ad in 2016 where he predicted the Dallas Cowboys would make it to the Super Bowl. You know how that story ended with the Cowboys losing to the Green Bay Packers in the National Football Conference Divisional Playoffs.Now Bayless who is not the second coming of Doctor Charles Xavier of X Men Fame believes that the Dallas Cowboys will not release Tony Romo who wants to leave the team since Dak Prescott will likely be the starting quarterback of the Cowboys in 2017 barring any injuries or unforeseen circumstances.Bayless believes that Jones believes that Romo will lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl championship before he retires from playing football in a few years.I just wonder if the water is safe to drink in Dallas Texas with the prediction of Bayless saying that Romo will be the starting quarterback of the Cowboys in 2017 despite the fact that Prescott earned the right to be the starting quarterback of the Cowboys in 2016 when Romo suffered an injury in the preseason.Romo is willing to be released by the Cowboys or released since he wants to be the starting quarterback of a team that is contention to make it to the Super Bowl besides the Cowboys.All I can say is that sports are becoming a soap opera with the commentary of sports personalities that never played a sport professionally like Skip Bayless.All I can say is wait until we get to the start of the 2017 football season to see if Romo is starting quarterback of the Cowboys or will he be playing for a playoff contender like the Houston Texans or the Kansas City Chiefs who are interested in hiring Romo to lead their team.Come on Bayless, you make me laugh with your commentary of Fox Sports 1 called “Undisputed”.News source is Fox Sports and the image is from Pinterest.com

I just wonder if the world is going mad or in the today’s National Basketball Association world has changed from the 1980s. Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry who were born in Akron Ohio are considered the top two players in the National Basketball Association of recent years since their teams have met in the National Basketball Association Finals in the last two seasons with the series being tied at one championship apiece.James insists he does not have a personal rivalry with Stephen Curry as the Eastern Conference All Stars will take on the Western Conference All Stars in New Orleans on Sunday.Now that is a very interesting train of thoughts coming from James. I am just starting to wonder if James lives in another planet other than Earth or did the remarks of his teammate Kyrie Irving who claims the planet Earth is flat.Either James is from the kinder and gentler sports star or maybe he does one common thread with Curry. They both despise President Donald Trump as the leader of the free world.Maybe the game has passed me by when sports stars played their basketball games without bringing the sensitive issue of politics in sports.Come on guys saying that is no bad blood between the Cavaliers and Warriors basketball teams is like saying ESPN is a conservative sports network.Just ask former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling for the answer. He believes that ESPN after he was terminated has gone left politically which has turned me off from watching the majority of their sports talk shows.Have fun New Orleans hosting the National Basketball Association All Star Game since Showtime with your favorite basketball stars will be in full force.One deal is for real though. James cannot be the number one sports star if he did not have someone to compete against him like Curry.News source is The Sporting News and the image is from Pinterest.com

Former Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim right handed starting pitcher Jered Weaver, 34, who is the younger brother of former Major League starting pitcher Jeff Weaver has signed a one year, $3 million dollar contract with the San Diego Padres on Saturday.Weaver had pitched for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim from 2006-2016 before he was allowed to hit the free agent trail at the end of the 2016 Major League Baseball season.The Padres needed the services of Weaver who will provide veteran leadership to their starting pitching staff in 2017.Weaver despite his age feels that pitching for the Padres who are currently in a rebuilding mode is what he needs to revive his prowess as one of the top starting pitchers during his tenure with the Angels until back injuries have slowed down his amazing starting pitching performances in recent years.A healthy Weaver will fill the need of the Padres who need at least one starting pitcher who can pitching deep into baseball games to ease up the use of the Padres relief pitchers on the team during the 2017 Major League Baseball season. Okay so Jered is not going to get the Padres into playoff contention but at least he will provide time for the team to their pitchers on their team who will be working on their minor league teams in 2017 to be ready to join the Major League team in the near future.One more benefit of Weaver pitching in San Diego. He gets to pitch for a team that is in his home state of California.News source is from FanRag.com and the image is from Scoreart.com

Former Texas Rangers left handed pitcher Derek Holland who signed a one year $6 million dollar contract with the Chicago White Sox after the conclusion of the 2016 Major League Baseball season. If Holland is able to pitch for the White Sox as effectively as he did during his prime years with the Texas Rangers, the White Sox are likely to return to playoff contention in the 2017 Major League Baseballs season.Holland in the last three baseball seasons with the Texas Rangers baseball team has been sidelined by injuries that cut back his pitching performances.Holland as a free agent chose the Chicago White Sox because he has worked with their pitching coach Don Cooper in the past.One reason Holland decided to pitch for the White Sox is that Geovany Soto who was one of the many catchers that Holland worked with in the past will be working with the has the nickname The Dutch Oven in the 2017 Major League Baseball season.The Rangers decided it was time to let Holland try his hand at free agency at the end of the 2016 Major League Baseball when they turned his option that would have paid him $11 million dollars after eight seasons with the team.News source is ESPN.com and the image is from Pinterest.com

Former Heisman Trophy winner and Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young who was the starting quarterback of the Titans who last played in six regular season games as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 before retiring from playing football in 2014, is working with his sports agent Leigh Steinberg into seeing if he latch on with the Saskatchwan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League before the start of the 2017 football season.The Roughriders traded their starting quarterback Darian Durant to the Montreal Aloulettes last month. The Roughriders need a veteran starting quarterback on their roster since the Roughriders current roster of quarterback are Brandon Bridge, Mitchell Gane and GJ Kinne.Young won the Heisman Trophy in 2005 as the starting quarterback of the University of Texas Longhorns who won the National Championship of college football by beating the University of Southern California Trojans in the 2006 Rose Bowl.Young 33, played in the National Football League with the Tennessee Titans from 2006-2010, the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 and was on the practice teams of the Buffalo Bills in 2012, the Green Bay Packers in 2013 and Cleveland Browns in 2014 before he retired to work with the Texas Longhorns in the diversity and community engagement.It would be nice to see Young return to playing football even if it is with the Canadian Football League since many sports experts want him to leave the game of professional football on a positive note.

Kansas City Chiefs second string quarterback Nick Foles, 28, who can be become a free agent next month is not likely to return to the team since the team cannot pay his $6.4 million dollar salary to serve as the backup to Alex Smith in 2017 due to the National Football League salary cap that all football teams have to work with.Foles has played football with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2012-2014, the St. Louis Rams in 2015 and the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016.The silver lining in the dark cloud that Foles does not get his contract renewed by the Chiefs at the start of free agency is that Foles can find employment with another team in the National Football League as a starting quarterback since there are a few teams that will be needing his services in 2017.The Chiefs current quarterbacks are Alex Smith, Tyler Bray and Joel Stave if Smith does leave the team to seek employment with another team in the league.The Chiefs picked up Foles from the free agent market after he was released by the Los Angeles Rams (formerly St. Louis) since Chiefs head coach Andy Reid worked with Foles when he was the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-2012.News source is the Kansas City Star and the image is from Etsy.com

Welcome once again to the National Basketball Association sports blog concerning current Golden State Warriors small forward Kevin Durant who joined the Warriors prior to the start of the 2016-17 basketball season as a free agent.Wanda Durant who is the mother of Kevin has learned that famous lesson of “Don’t get mad, get even” when she trolled irate Oklahoma City Thunder fans who insulted her son at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Saturday night for all things leaving the local team to join the enemy Golden State Warriors as a free agent.First of all Thunder fans, Kevin Durant decided to leave the team he started his professional basketball career in 2007 with the Seattle SuperSonics before they moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 because he wanted to get an National Basketball Association championship ring before he retired and he exercised his right to not renew his contract with the Thunder at the end of the 2015-16 basketball season.I will give Wanda her praise for trolling Thunder fans after the Warriors beat the Thunder by a final score of 130-114 on Saturday evening in Oklahoma City.Fans of the Thunder called Durant a “cupcake” for leaving his former team to play for the Warriors. It did not faze Kevin since his team won the basketball game against his former team.Wanda to her credit is now wearing a cupcake tee shirt as a way of telling Thunder fans “My son did not get mad, he got even.” Of course members of the Golden State Warriors basketball team wore the tee shirt as a way of sticking it to the Thunder fans. Stay classy Warriors. Just remember sports fans that your favorite basketball player who leaves his hometown team for another team they tell you “If you were in my shoes and you were offered a deal you could not pass up, you would take it in a heartbeat.” News source is FoxSports.com and the image is from Pinterest.com
