This past weekend had so many great sporting events going on, overlapping, on at the same time. What was a sports fan to do? Me, I went and saw The Avengers 2.
For the most part, I just didnt care. I will break down the events and my viewership of them.
Mayweather vs Pacqiauo. The Fight of the Century. Did not watch. First, unless Ali, Frazier, Hagler, Hearns, Tyson, etc are invovled, this isnt the fight of the century. There was no way I was going to pay $99 to watch two guys who should have fought years ago, and Mayweather wears a hat of ass. They both made a lot of money, I wasnt contributing.
The NFL Draft. Watched First Round, checked back in on the weekend. I mean did anybody really sit through the entire draft coverage? After the first round on Thursday, I occasionally checked in. I know the ACC had a lot of players picked. I did think it was cool that in the later rounds, fans got to announce their teams picks.
The Kentucky Derby. Did not watch. I have slightly more of an interest in this over boxing, but I was busy at the time of the race. I didnt catch any of the 5 hour pregame show either before the two minute race. Honestly, this year I didnt even know who the favorite was. American Pharoh won.
Spurs vs LA Clippers, Game 7. Watched the 4th quarter. This was the best sports viewing for me on the weekend. Great game (the part I saw) and great finish with Chris Paul, with a bad hammy, hitting a shot with one second left over Tim Duncan (Wake on Wake crime). With Danny Green thrown in. The defending champs are done, classy team, Paul was in tears afterwards.
ESPN kept throwing Yankees vs Red Sox in the mix, but I didnt watch. Avengers 2 is very good. Not quite as good as the first but good.
Saw that Kenny Williams, former VCU commit, is going to UNC.
