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. Like maybe girlfriends? Come on, just like those guys who played for the Yankees.
– The Flyers play an important game against the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, and need to win if they want to continue to hold their 2-point conference lead over the Caps, who are in play against Carolina.
– The 76ers beat the Bulls last night, and with the potential to upset the Miami Heat in the playoffs (someone is going to, right?), it begs the question that with the Flyers making a Cup run and the Phillies playing with what could be the best pitching staff in baseball, will anyone care? Meanwhile, the Knicks took out the Magic in OT, and everyone in NY loves Carmelo again, at least until they lose a game.
– Erik Ainge, QB for the New York Jets, comes clean about his past drug habits, saying, ““My addiction is with the hardest of hard drugs — heroin, cocaine and alcohol. During my days of using, I was a really bad drug addict. I would’ve made Charlie Sheen look like Miss Daisy,”.” He apparently used to bang a girl I used to play beer pong with, so he’s OK in my book.
You know, at the least Bernard Hopkins could have answered Jean Pascal. Dude just wanted to know if you were willing to take the test. No need to be rude. I like the french reporters crying out during the scuffle. “Non, Non, vee shall threw out zee banana and zey vill stop, now, hand me ze wine and my cigarette.” Because the French are incredibly racist.(video found via)
-The NFL draft, as well my heart, will go on.
-Meanwhile, Chad “Johnson” Ochocino has been named a reserve for the MLS club, Sporting KC (cool name.) Because, who gives a fuck, it’s American soccer, right?
Yup, those are friend chicken wings. Have a great night! (via)
