The Sports Bros.: Rare Jordans

Somewhere deep-in-the-heart-of some Nike marketing executive’s office someone had the brilliant idea of releasing some Classic Jordan kicks just in time for the holidays. Say what you will about the folks at Nike but they can sell ice to an Eskimo. No one has ever accused them of a lack of foresight, so to speak. Thus the sneaker geniuses decided to release an extremely limited edition called Air Jordan XI Retro Concords. This should create a buzz they must have assumed, except I...

The Sports Bros.: Xavier & Cincinnati Gives College Basketball A Black Eye

@TheSportsBros In case you missed it or haven't cared, college basketball is in full swing across hundreds of campuses across the country. And so far this year we've seen some memorable match ups. Duke vs. Michigan was an NBA All Stars 2nd generation showcase where Austin Rivers( son of Doc), Seth Curry (son of Dell and brother of Stephen) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (no explanation needed) battled on the court. We saw the #1 team in the nation Kentucky go down with a last second three pointer to...

The Sports Bros: “The Season Of Lebron”

@TheSportsBros Merry Christmas South Florida !! They’re baaaack, we’re of course talking about The Big 3, The South Beach NWO or any other moniker LeBron James, Dwayne Wade or Chris Bosh may have chosen once they united with the Miami Heat last season. The collective sigh of relief you may have heard came from NBA fans not only here but around the country as the league owners and players finally reached a handshake agreement to end the lockout and set a date to officially start playing...

The Sports Bros. : Penn State Scandal

@TheSportsBros The scandal that rocked Penn State University and the college football world last week was unlike any other. In a week's time, a college campus riots, a legendary coach gets fired and a few young men are reminded and brought back to a horrific time in their lives. This story also shows us a gross example of negligence, abuse of power, the good ole' boy network and the inability to separate right from wrong. Think about this for a minute. We would not be discussing this...

The Sports Bros.: NBA Season In Peril

@TheSportsBros So now NBA commissioner David Stern has warned us that the traditional Christmas day games may be lost due to the lockout. Okay this is the last straw ! Is it not the American way to unwrap the presents early in the am on December 25th, exchange pleasantries with family and friends throughout the day and then settle in about 5 o clock in the afternoon for some Christmas day hoops? This lockout stuff has gone on long enough, already the season’s first two weeks has been...

FIU Golden Panthers Football Becoming The Dominant Program In South Florida?

@TheSportsBros Not too long ago, there were two football programs that mattered the most in South Florida. Each weekend, thousands of fans could count on being razzled and dazzled on Saturdays with the "U" and on Sundays with the 'Phins. It never failed. While the Canes were gyrating and pelvic thrusting all over the college football landscape, the Dolphins led by Dan Marino were assaulting teams w/ their aerial attack. The Canes brought a lot of championships. The Dolphins brought a lot of...

The Sports Brothers Weekly Update

@TheSportsBros When Al Golden got the job at the U, many folks felt as if he should be able to step right in and do well with all of the talent that surrounded him. A stable of running backs, some studs at wide receiver and a great defense. All he had to do was get some stability at the quarterback position and Cane's fan had dreams of booking tickets to an ACC Championship game. But no so fast. Through three games this season the Canes have shown flashes of brilliance mostly but the...

The Sports Bros.: No Tattoos For Cam Newton

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson recently spoke in an interview about his first meeting with Cam Newton, pre draft. One of the questions he asked Cam was if "he had any tattoos and or piercings", to which Newton said "no". Richardson replied "good, and let's keep it that way". Let's stop right there. Richardson is the owner of the Panthers and if he wants to mandate a player dress code or a player physical appearance rule, fine. But it should be made across the board with the...
