The Daily Drive will be a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Sorry for this being a little late, wordpress was being funky.
-The Knicks got bloody (get it?) humiliated on their home floor versus the Celtics last night. They were out scored 33-17 in the fourth quarter and they completely stopped playing defense after a solid first three quarters in which they held the Celtics big 4 to just 18 points. However in the 4th quarter Rondo, Pierce, Garnett and Allen scored 15. To add insult to injury Carmelo Anthony got a cut above the eye after running into Rajon Rondo, who then proceeded to trip over a bloodied Anthony when running back down the court. Melo feels as if the Knicks will be meshing better come the playoffs, but they need to start playing the full 48 minutes.
– Oliver Perez was FINALLY given his walking papers from the Mets. Since signing a 3 year $36 million dollar contract extension prior to the 2009 season Oli went 3-9 with a 6.81 ERA with exactly 100 walks in 112.1 innings…That isn’t good. While Perez had a couple of respectable seasons in his career, not being able to throw strikes and pouting like a 6 year old shouldn’t warrant being paid $36 million. Ladies and Gentlemen your New York Mets!
-Another stud ex-metropolitan was also released yesterday. Of course I’m talking about the great Luis Castillo whom was quickly snatched up by the Phillies. Now if Chase is really hurt (which I refuse to believe) and IF Luis hits like .290 (difficult when you can’t hit a ball out of the infield) and plays decent defense (which I doubt is possible due to the fattie factor) of course I’ll love him. However, the guy is weird as hell and a scumbag…And doesn’t communicate (is that the way we say can’t speak English now a days?) well with his agent apparently.
– The Red Wings-Penguins played a tremendous hockey game last night with the Wings storming back from 4 goals down only to lose in a shootout. Unfortunately the game was on versus so probably 400 people got to see it. But hell who wants to watch that when we can watch the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship??? Or the NIT???? C’mon ESPN get the NHL back.
– Lastly it was kind of a dead day in sports yesterday with no March Madness going on so here’s some pictures of Emmy Rossum. She stars in the show Shameless on Showtime is hot and funny and we like that here at 90on95.com.
