U of M will always be big contenders in the ‘Not Important Tournament’

Soooo, The University of Michigan fired their men’s basketball coach.  I’d include the fired coach’s name in this post, but I never took the time to learn it.

Does UofM seriously think that hiring a new coach is going to improve their chances of getting a spot in the NCAA tournament next year, seeing as how they lost in the beginning rounds of the NIT (Not Important Tournament) this season?…  That is like saying that just because MSU fired their football coach, John L. Smith (the only reason I learned his name is because I go to MSU so I pretty much had to), that they will play in a bowl game higher than the Motor City bowl.

Face it…basketball will always be MSU’s sport and football will always be UofM’s sport (at least until Ohio State comes and beats them up repeatedly, physically and emotionally).

So… a gay NBA player, what’s the big deal?

john-amaechi.jpg    So, John Amaechi has came out of the closet.  I do not see the big deal in this.  I’m not gay, nor do I have any gay friends, so I guess I wouldn’t personally know the true impact of having famous people come out of the closet. 

    Homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted as time goes on.  There is at least one gay person in almost every field now a days.  NFL: Esera Tuaolo, MLB: Glenn Burke, LPGA: Rosie Jones, Women’s Tennis: Martina Navratilova, anyways, you get the point.

    I guess the ‘coming out’ of Amaechi is a big step for the gay community, but I have to wonder what Amaechi’s intentions were for coming out.  Is it just a coincidence that he has a book coming out on Wednesday about his life?… I think not.
