Golden State goes back to playing right-handed to beat the Hawks

After losing to the Portland Trailblazers 137-105 on Friday night the Golden State Warriors announced that they would go back to playing right handed.

They beat the Atlanta Hawks 102-92 on Monday night.

“Look, we were bored and we wanted to try something different.” said Warriors guard Stephen Curry. “We thought it might be fun to just play with our weak hand but this is the NBA and we just can’t do that every night.”

The Warriors are now 50-5 with 27 games left to play, and the margin for error is small, if they are going to break the 1996 Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins in a season.

Coach Steve Kerr spoke after the Warriors slipped past the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

“The guys wanted to give it a shot against Portland and just play with their left hand. And it was fun for awhile, we got away with it in the first half. But coming down the stretch it was just too much.” Kerr said. “They can’t do that stuff anymore.”

“We have actually done it before.” confessed Curry. “We beat the Lakers by like 35 earlier this year playing left-handed, and we beat the Grizzlies by 50 in November, when we all only took shots with our eyes closed. But in this highly competitve league we can’t just mess around. We have to be more serious. Although we are going to each just wear one shoe on Wednesday against Miami.”

Latest article reveals that Peyton Manning was “probably” the second shooter from the Grassy Knoll

It’s a 53 year old mystery that many said would never be solved but a recent article published in the Daily News is hoping to break the cold case wide open.

For years many have suspected that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone in his quest to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

Now there finally seems to be something to all of those conspiracy theories that we have been hearing for years.

Daily News writer Ron Bling has presented a 74 page summary of the historical event and has named Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning as the second shooter.

While the document did not present any evidence or testimony from the Manning family, and Bling did not make any attempt to contact Manning, it does make some interesting arguments.

The primary allegation is that based on the Zapruder film, there was clearly smoke and a gunshot fired by Manning from the Grassy Knoll, that was responsible for Kennedy’s fatal head wound.

While many have explained the Grassy Knoll shooter conspiracy as simply a matter of acoustics due to a large brick retaining wall.

However, Bling states that it was instead Manning’s unusually large forehead that caused the phantom sounds.

“Manning’s squeaky-clean image has been built on lies.” Bling contends. “He was obviously an accomplice to Oswald. And this has nothing to do with the fact that he just won the Super Bowl. That is just a concidence. It just has taken me nearly 53 years to write all of this down on a piece of paper. And now I want the world to know.”

Did he feel that the story was a balanced objective report?

“Of course it was.” he explained. “This isn’t just a one-sided opinion or a false allegation. This report that I have issued is based solely on fact.”

Is it a problem for Bling’s premise that Manning wan’t born until 1976 over 13 years after the assassination took place?

“That sure is convenient for Peyton Manning, isn’t it?” he questioned.  “But I won’t be deterred. He is clearly the second shooter and I will not allow something silly like facts get in my way.”

Denver Nuggets surprised that the city is throwing them a parade

The Denver Nuggets have managed to win just 21 games so far this season which might be higher than many expected.

But even they were surprised that the city of Denver was hosting a parade for them with an expected crowd of nearly one million fans when they returned home from their east coast road trip.

“I knew we were doing pretty well” said Nuggets head coach Mike Malone “but I am glad that so many fans are this excited for us.”

“We have won four of our last six games which is a huge step for a franchise that sometimes goes months without four wins.” Malone continued. “But we are so happy that the fans in Denver appreciate what we have done and are so supportive. It really means alot.”

Perhaps the most surprised member of the team is 35 year old backup shooting guard Mike Miller.

Miller joined the Nuggets in the offseason from the Cleveland Cavaliers and has seen limited minutes. He is currently averaging 1.2 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.9 assists per game.

But he seems to be a favorite in the Mile High city.

“I just keep seeing signs all over saying “Miller-MVP” and “Miller for President” I mean it really is amazing. People are chanting my name everywhere I go. They are even saying that I deserve a huge new contract. I knew I was playing better than what people might have expected but this is just so flattering. I love it here in Denver.”

The Detroit Lions are the reason we can’t have nice things

It seems the Detoit Lions have ruined another great NFL player, as it was announced on Sunday night, that wide receiver Calvin Johnson has played his final season in the league.

Johnson, who is 31, told his family and close friends prior to the 2015 season that this could be it for him. He cited his chronic ankle injuries and body soreness as one of the determining factors in his decision.

Johnson also informed Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell of his intentions the day after the regular season ended.

Caldwell told Johnson not to rush the decision and to let his body heal before doing anything rash.

In his nine seasons Johnson wowed fans with his insane abilities. In his career he has logged 731 catches for nearly 12,000 yards and 83 touchdowns.

This isn’t the first time that the Lions have ruined things for the rest of us.

In 1999 Barry Sanders, one of the most electric football players in NFL history, abrubtly announced his retirement rather than continuing on with the dysfunctional disaster that is the Detroit Lions franchise.

And it certainly won’t be the last time either.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn addressed the media on Monday and said that he has not reached out to Johnson and “really isn’t too worried about it.”

“Calvin is a nice player and all but here at Lions headquarters we have other things to attend to. We have kids out there that still believe in Santa Claus. We have mosquitos to breed. And we have to fund Justin Bieber’s career. What I am trying to say is that we have too much on our plate right now to worry about Calvin Johnson, okay?”
