For years I have been thinking, then eventually sharing with others, how incredibly odd Hunter Pence is. Not personality wise, but just every movement he makes on a baseball diamond is odd, quirky, and flat out well...just different. In being a good sport about it, Pence makes fun of his peculiar ways in a recent video where he is teaching kids to play the game of baseball like him. It is quite funny, and baseball fans will thoroughly enjoy it. Here it is.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, my New York Knicks have become a bit of a sanctuary for my sports fandom. Everything that has been the New York Yankees summer, and recent elimination, just begs for a proverbial turning of the page. The NBA season is that new chapter. The Knicks season is a bit of a conundrum, as they've gotten much better, BUT, so did the rest of the Eastern Conference. I'm feeling confident, but I'm also anxious for more good basketball and hoping that last year wasn't some fluky gift to us Knicks for our patience prior to last season. Whatevs...nonetheless, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season.
