The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 3

December 21, 2009

"With the 199th pick of the 2000 NFL draft...."

The number three athlete began the decade as an obscure backup, but closes it as the most accomplished player in the nation’s most popular sport.  This quarterback is a three-time champion whose persona has transcended football.   In addition, despite appearing in just four Pro-Bowls and winning “only” one MVP, this athlete has been the epitome of clutch in the big spot, leading his team to some of the most memorable victories of the 2000’s.  Some players have passed him in terms of individual accolades and honors, but nobody can match his accomplishments when championships are on the line.

The number three athlete after the jump!

Shockey: Lebron couldn't cut it in NFL

After reports surfaced that future Knick, err I mean NBA star Lebron James said he has aspirations to someday play in the NFL, Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey has some thoughts of his own.  “King James wouldn’t cut it in the NFL on Sundays.”  That is what the talkative ex-Giant said via his Twitter account Wednesday night. “Everyone trust me Lebron James could not play in the NFL,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “ESPN is crazy to even think he could even make a practice squad. He’s no better than a 4.9  40 time.”

Who said there’s no crying in football?

November 17, 2009

A day after the Jets lost a crippling game to the Jaguars, head coach Rex Ryan gathered his team for the traditional Monday morning meeting.  Except, this meeting was different.  According to several players, Rex delivered an impassioned speech to his players that was so emotionally charged it brought him to tears. Plenty of players were left stunned, and many were quoted as saying it made them want to run right out of the auditorium and straight on a plane to Foxborough for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

Gus Johnson Apologizes for Comment

November 4, 2009
gus johnson n pat

Work for the Knicks?? hahahahaha!

Gus Johnson for those who are not familiar is a play by play sportscaster for CBS Sports, Showtime, The MSG Network, The Big Ten Network and Strikeforce mixed martial arts. He is well known for his loud screaming during March Madness and T.O.N.Y Sports loves him including myself!

Gus recently apologized for making a controversial comment about Titans running back Chris Johnson this past Sunday as he broke for a 52 yard TD run.

“He’s got getting away from the cops speed!!” Gus excitedly yelled while making the call for the Titans Jaguars game on CBS.  Gus who is of African American descent gave this statement to USA Today yesterday:

“If there is a perception of  racism in this analogy, it is not coming from me. People of all races have run from the law. However to those offended , I apologize.”

The apology is more than likely coming off the heels of Bob Griese’s recent suspension by ESPN when he had the following to say about race car driver Juan Pablo Montoya,

“he’s out having a taco”

WOW, that was pretty ignorant on Bob’s part being that Juan is Colombian and not Mexican but Gus, I’m not mad at you and neither is anyone from T.O.N.Y Sports homie, keep yelling at those games and tell MSG that you need to replace Mike Breen for all home Knick games!
