MLB’s extended opening day is all over,and the newest member of the Thoughts of a Jeanius family Kelvin Mota, who has quite a bit of credibilitywhen it comes to baseball, not only did his father Andy Mota play in the league, his grandfather, Manny Mota, spent over 30 years with the Dodgers as a player then a coach.

It seems like a given that former UCF quarterback, Blake Bortles, is on pace to become the highest drafted UCF player into the NFL in the schools history.

Man oh man, if this whole George Zimmerman “celebrity boxing,” thing wasn’t already bizarre enough, with rapper The Game already saying that he wants to fight Zimmerman, and DMX saying that he wants to “piss on him.” Zimmerman has now named who he wants to see in the boxing ring, Kanye West.

George Zimmerman is a legit celebrity from killing a black teen.
Two NBA records went down tonight in the association. Fresh off being named an all star for the seventh time in his career Carmelo Anthony broke Kobe Bryant‘s record 61 points in Madison Square Garden (MSG) and set a new Knicks record, and Chandler Parsons set the record for most threes in a half for NBA basketball.
To say that Richard Sherman is outspoken would be a huge understatement; from going after Darrelle Revis saying that he was the best cornerback in the NFL, to attacking Skip Bayless on ESPN First Take, well he was back at it again after the Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Fransisco 49ers to advance to the Super Bowl.
