The Daily Drive is a (sometimes) daily feature here on 90on95. It features a mishmash of sports news, pop culture and music, things that I think you should give a shit about.
First of all you guys deserve a proper hello.
Let’s get to the good stuff.
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCKEY IS BAAAAAAAAAACK!!! – The NHL and NHLPA reached a tentative agreement over the weekend, and guys we’ll all be watching puck Saturday, January 19th. After what seemed like forever this stupid labor war is over and now we can go back to arguing over whether they should be playing hockey in Arizona or if the Rangers will fail again in the playoffs (no and yes!). Pavel Datsyuk toe drags for everyone!!!!
National Championship – My beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish (you may have heard of them, being number 1 in the country and what not) take on the Alabama Crimson Tide (which would admittedly make a badass civil war movie about a band of Southern bandits who team up with the North to dismantle the will of the Confederacy. Jeez Quentin Tarantino get on that) in the BCS National Championship tonight. It should be a fantastic battle of two of the best defenses in the country, and could either cement Nick Saban’s legacy (in ways that a diner waitress never could) or could be Brian Kelly’s moment to make us all come together (as ND fans, of course). Manti Te’0. That’s all. ND 17, Alabama 13.
NBA, music, ballsy kids, after the jump!
NBA LIGHTNING ROUND! – There’s a guy named Howard injured for the LA Lakers and honestly guys I can’t even think of his first name. The NBA! Gotta love it! Dirk Nowitzki (but yeah I can spell his without looking it up) is mad and angry!
Chip Kelly has a mangina – Turning down two teams from the pro’s because he just feels more comfortable in the college environment. I’m sure it has nothing to do with coeds.
Japandroids – The best band you guys aren’t listening to.
SOCCER! – Luis Suarez is basically the worlds worst human being ever in the universe.
That’s it for me guys, maybe I’ll post something for you guys later, but if not see you tomorrow with either a really awesome ND column or a really bitter one. Here are some kids doing some ballsy things that make you look like an asshole when you say “it’s too cold outside”. GO IRISH!
