Wickett's World - FINALLY!! Money May VS Pac Man..but wait...

a rare boxing blog...

I'll make this short. First of all, I'm not a Floyd Mayweather fan. I respect him for what he is - an incredible tactician and a tremendous defensive boxer. His record is impressive at 47-0. But is he one of the great boxers of all time? NO. BoxingNews24.com did an AMAZING job of detailing just how overrated "money may" really is. Look at who he's beaten to get to 47-0. Not really impressive. Great boxer? NO DOUBT. One of the greatest of all time? Nope. As Ric Flair said, "To BE the man, you've got to BEAT the man"!! 

Now his father has all but guaranteed that Mayweather will fight his longtime rival, Manny Pacquiao some time in 2015. I'll be honest, when I 1st heard the news, I got excited. I've wanted this for a long time. Then it hit me - it's 2014, NOT 2007. Pacquiao will be 36. Mayweather will be 38 depending on the date of the fight. 38. Think about that. 

This fight SHOULD have happened when both boxers were closer to their incredible prime. Why hasn't it happened? According to MANY people, it's  because Mayweather didn't want to damage his undefeated record. I agree. Even as recently as LAST MONTH, Pacquiao claims "money may" has ducked him AGAIN. 

Will I watch the fight? ABSOLUTELY. Will it set records for Pay-Per-View buys? I have no doubt in my mind. I just wish it would've been 7 years ago when we REALLY could have seen these two at their best. 

cheers...

P.S. - My best guess is that this fight happens on May 2nd, the night of the Kentucky Derby. Mark that down. I'll take Floyd in pts...but I'll be rooting for Manny.

Wickett's World - MLB Playoff Picks

Now that the wild card games are over and we can get to the Divisional series’ rounds of the Major League Baseball Playoffs, I thought I’d offer my predictions out there.

Note: I picked Oakland and San Francisco in the WC games so I’m officially 1-1.

NLDS
San Francisco vs Washington. On one hand you have the team with the best record in the NL in the Washington Nationals. They’re young, exciting and REALLY good and don’t forget about. And then there’s the Giants who have won 2 World Series titles in the last 5 years. Washington has truly been building for this. NOW is there time.

X-Factor:  Washington P Doug Fister who won 16 games (after time on the DL) & has a 2.41 ERA after getting traded by Detroit in the offseason. He was AMAZING for the Tigers in the postseason and he’ll do it again. I’m taking the NATIONALS IN 4.

Dodgers vs Cardinals. How do you bet against LA? They say pitching wins - They’re rotation is LOADED with the Cy Young/MVP winner in Clayton Kershaw ALONG with Zack Greinke and the UNDERRATED Hyun-Jin Ryu. And then there’s the Cardinals…who just…ugh….win because it’s “The Cardinal Way”…PUKE

X-Factor: Yasiel Puig – his mistakes cost LA a run at last year’s World Series. Will he play under control & be the dynamic  player he’s developed into or will his emotions get the best of him again? I’m taking the Dodgers in 5.

ALDS

Detroit vs Baltimore. Detroit made the biggest move at the trade deadline by acquiring pitcher David Price. LOOK AT THAT ROTATION – Scherzer, Price, Verlander, Porcello. YIKES. The Orioles’ Nelson Cruz had a MONSTER season.

X-Factor: Detroit closer Joe Nathan. His ERA  is 4.81. HE’S A CLOSER. Keep it together and the tigers will go to the ALCS. Fail? Well, do you remember LAST SEASON? I’m betting on the starters and an healthy offense- Tigers in 5.

Royals vs. Angels.  WOW – what a game we all saw in the AL Wild card. Can KC have ANYTHING left, emotionally? The Angels are the bullies with the best record in baseball.  Will they be able to handle the speed of Ned Yost’s Royals?

X-Factor:  LA’s Josh Hamilton – he’s back & (allegedly) healthy after missing 22 of the last 25 games. Which player will he be? I’m rooting for KC, but I’ll say ANGELS IN 3

NLCS – Nationals over Dodgers
ALCS – Tigers over Angels
World Series – Nationals over Tigers – Doug Fister gets his revenge in game 7 for being traded. 

Enjoy the playoffs!! Cheers...

Wickett's World - Janay blames everyone but her husband..and what's next for Ray


Why does Janay Rice blame everyone but her husband..and what's next for Ray?

I have 2 theories on Janay Rice, concerning the Instagram message she sent out on the morning on September 9th, criticizing fans, the NFL and the media (of course) for her husband, Baltimore Raven Running Back Ray Rice’s suspension. I’m no doctor, but here’s what I see.

Theory #1 – Janay didn’t write this. My guess? Ray himself wrote it or one of Ray’s “people” wrote it, trying to make it look like she’s not mad at the situation. It makes no sense why she would write it. She claims we’ve all ruined everything for them. Did WE punch you in the face? Perhaps she was forced to post this. Why? She posted it out of fear. Fear that her millionaire husband would leave her if she didn’t try to help clean up his image. Or maybe fear of what he’d do if she DIDN’T post it.

Theory #2 – Janay has seen domestic violence too many times before. I really hope that Ms Rice doesn’t view what her husband did as acceptable behavior. “We’re in love” and “He didn’t really mean it” stuff is CLASSIC battered woman material. I fear that she has grown up with domestic abuse in her family and views that as “normal”. I also fear that Ray sees hitting a woman as normal. It’s not.

If you haven’t seen the video by now, here's the FULL VERSION

There is NO acceptable reason to EVERY strike a woman. If conflict arises, WALK AWAY. Don’t tell me she was charging at him. He takes hits from Patrick Willis, Clay Matthews and other NFL stars. He’s a professional athlete in tip top physical condition. There’s no way that woman was going to strike him in a way that he was going to be seriously hurt. His left cross would’ve made Joe Frazier proud. Get out of the elevator and WALK AWAY.

What’s next for Ray Rice? Not much. Yeah, he’ll serve his suspension. Yeah, an NFL team will give him a shot in 2015. But what will a 28 year old running back who’s productivity has declined in recent years do? Not much. The NFL chews up running backs & spits them out. His productive years are gone. And so is his NFL career.
Cheers…
