We Should Thank Mayweather

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. Pretty Boy vs. Pac-Man. The illusive yet “it’s never gonna happen” fight that remains only a figment of our crafty imaginations may very well happen this May.

And why wouldn’t it? These are the only two high level boxers who have yet to fight each other.  And why is that? Well, you see Floyd Mayweather is a very high commodity, not only for sports promoters, television broadcasts and fans but for the sport of boxing itself.  He may be the greatest Welterweight fighter the sport has ever seen.

Floyd Mayweather jr. vs Shane Mosley

Mayweather has consistently surprised us fans both in and out of the ring.  Not only being one of the most electric undefeated fighters, barely throwing a punch during his matches, but has revealed his true compassionate side towards the human race. He saved all of his children from their mother’s abusive hand.  How dare she teaches them a language outside of English, a language Mayweather  masters each and every night by reading a chapter of Harry Potter to his devoted children.

His confidence in his portrayal of the world’s other cultures is something to be admired.  His critique of Oscar De La Hoya’s Mexican heritage as well as Pacquiao’s delectable Filipino cuisine is a commendable quality every American should try and emulate themselves.  Americans always embrace each others’ differences.

Instead of wallowing over his friend’s selfish action of taking his own life, he openly supported one of the National Basketball Association’s struggling franchises, a Clippers team that is in dire need of attention from people who epitomize positivity and respect.

Manny Pacquiao should be honored to even be considered meeting Mayweather in the ring,  I mean this man’s nickname is “MONEY.” And who honestly doesn’t love money? Especially if that money is going towards Mayweather’s pre-approved charities that benefit all of mankind.

As long as Mayweather is given what he deserves, which should be a very fair salary distribution, then the fight should happen. Even though Mayweather probably wouldn’t be able to necessarily read the fine print of his contract, he should be preserving his real power for when he meets Pacquiao, defeating him with his unrelenting wit and tenacious intellect.  Someone with his high level of  intelligence only surrounds himself with like-minded people.

And what has Manny Pacquiao done for this world to be given the honor of fighting Mayweather? He is a rigged politician who devotes his life to the corrupt public while his mother openly performs witchcraft in public against his innocent victims. His questionable actions and ill-family ties have made him ultimately untrustworthy and sour.

Come May, we will see who the true winner is in the boxing ring.  The right winner will be a man of the utmost dignity and virtue, an athlete who go down in history as one of the greatest men to have ever graced this world with his divine presence.

Wtf

Relief pitcher Alex Torres became the first pitcher to use one of Major League Baseball’s new protective caps for pitchers.  And here is the verdict:

The immediate reaction by many is the enormous size that triples the weight of the caps from 3 to 4 ounces to 10 to 11 ounces.

I think the other reaction we all have is something like this….

Shermanology

NFL: St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks

All of Sports Media is a buzz about Richard Sherman and his less than mature antics after winning the NFC championship game against the 49ers.  In case you have been living under a rock, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman blocked a game winning pass intended for 49er’s receiver Michael Crabtree in the end zone in last Sunday’s NFC Championship game.  Immediately after the play, Sherman smacked Crabtree on his bootie and exchanged some words….basically showboating and rubbing it in his face.  Crabtree proceeded to shove him in the face.

First off, let me just say it was beyond sweet seeing Jim Harbaugh truly angry throughout the entire game.  What truly would have been amazing is if Sherman directed his showboating towards his old Stanford coach and gave him a big hug after the play……”Thanks Coach! Couldn’t have done it without your tight khaki pants!” Ahhh, can you just imagine the tantrum??

Anyways, back to business.  Richard Sherman is either the biggest jerk alive or the smartest man alive.  Were his antics necessary?  In short, yes, yes they were because nobody can stop talking about him, which I think is EXACTLY what he wanted.

Richard Sherman is getting more press than ever.  His own football jersey is now among the top 10 best-selling jerseys in the league, according to sales rankings provided to ESPN.com from the league official store NFLSHOP.com.  Sherman has broken into the top 10 for the first time.  Sherman has also witnessed his Twitter account balloon by more than 270,000 followers in the first 24 hours. In fact, he has singularly been talked about as much as both the Seahawks and 49ers combined.

GEE, I wonder WHY?

tumblr_mzok5lkVrT1qc4ew1o1_250

Interestingly enough, Sherman on Wednesday retracted his post-game comments, comments that are less than classy, “I’m the best Cornerback in the game,” “I was making sure everyone knew Crabtree was a mediocre receiver, ” and then my favorite, “Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick.”  Sounds a bit threatening bro.

Let’s start calling this for what it is:  SHERMANOLOGY = Being a Dick = Popularity = $$

It’s true!  Sherman is an ivy-league educated athlete with a GPA of 4.0 straight out of Compton, CA, I think we can safely say he isn’t THAT dumb.  Well, let’s not include Jonathan Martin in this conversation,  that guy is just a big fat whiner.

Sherman knew exactly what he was going to do, what to say and who to say it to this season if the Seahawks were going to take it to the Superbowl.  With all the press coverage, interviews, jersey sales and twitter popularity, Sherman has put on the new face of “what is trending,” for weeks to come.  I don’t care what anybody else says out there, I think this Shermonolgy strategy is genius, and possibly a way of NFL life.

The guy is not only a great player who is brilliantly self-marketing his name, he is also remorseful.  He has already come out and apologized for his comments, “It is what it is. Things like that happen and you deal with the adversity. I come from a place where it’s all adversity (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), so what’s a little more or people telling you what you can’t do. I really was surprised. If I had known it was going to blow up like that I would have approached it differently, just in terms of the way it took away from my teammates. That’s the thing I feel regretful about.”

Oh snap.  This guy doesn’t even need a publicist, he knows what to say, how to say it and when to say it, leaving us sports fans only wanting more. My only concern would be if they lose the Superbowl and Sherman directs his bad sportsmanship and frustration towards Peyton Manning. Now who would have the balls to do that to Peyton Manning?

tumblr_mzo8xvDrRu1r3x1tzo1_500

Peyton Manning is too beloved in the NFL to be subject to classless harassment, so if Sherman learned anything from his Shermanology, he knows better than to disrespect Peyton.  Otherwise, the city of Omaha will be on his ass like shit on Velcro.
