If there is one thing that a team never wants to do it is help a team they will face in the coming season. No matter the position, cutting or losing a player to free agency that an opponent picks up--well, it sucks.
And the Chicago Bears are thinking about doing just that.
Cleveland Browns fans were excited to Fan Fest this year; not because the team is expected to actually be competitive for once. No, the excitement really had nothing at all to do with football or the Browns. It was for the Fan Kickoff Concert featuring legendary rock band Bon Jovi.
Go ahead. Squeal like a little school girl now. If I lived in Cleveland I know I would have.
Yes, I used the past tense on purpose. Why? Because after getting fans hopes up and excited for an awesome show the team has now announced that Bon Jovi has cancelled.
It's been a heck of a year for young Tim Tebow. He never really got the chance to play, got passed over for the No. 3 guy after the team finally benches Mark Sanchez, and eventually gets cut. Rex Ryan and the New York Jets organization really pulled the wool over his eyes by making him--and the rest of us--believe that he was going to be a secret weapon.
That's okay because in the end it is Tebow that is getting the last laugh.
This is one of those stories that makes you wonder how some individuals can be so demented and heartless as to make fun or a person who has been robbed of his ability to speak by a terrible disease. Apparently a trio of Atlanta radio hosts though it would be a good idea to do just that.
In case you missed it, San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Danny Green has been lights out from behind the arc hitting a record 25 three pointers through five games; a number good enough to break the record for most three's made in a Finals series.
Breaking the record was great. Doing it in a winning effort in Game 5 even better, but what made it the best was that the old record holder, Ray Allen, had to watch him do it--a look forever immortalized in this GIF:

During halftime of a game as big as Game 5 of the NBA Finals you would expect a player to be going over things with the coaching staff and his teammates, staying off his feet, getting hydrated, and focusing on the game specifically what to do in the second half.
What you wouldn't expect is to see someone taking the time out and stepping away from the game to play with his kids in the hallway.
The answer is pretty simple--the man is a marketing genius and an absolute juggernaut. Jay-Z proved it once again during half time of the NBA Finals when he announced via an ad that he was releasing his next album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.
It wasn't just the announcement that makes him a genius though. No, it's the fact that the album will have already gone platinum before it is even officially released.
