In the very same week that the enormously mouthed former Broncos TE Shannon Sharpe learned that he was a finalist for the NFL Hall of Fame he has been forced to step aside as a CBS sports commentator due to some pretty heinous accusations by a woman named Michele Bundy. In a state of Georgia "Family Violence" complaint (viewable at Sports By Brooks), Bundy accuses Sharpe of repeatedly raping and stalking her. Bundy has been awarded a restraining order against Sharpe.
Never trust a woman who's first name is spelled incorrectly. Bad news. The first mistake Michele Bundy's parents made was forgetting one of the L's. Subsequent errors in child rearing led to Bundy becoming a falsely-accusing hyper-freak in her adult life.
Bundy, who petitioned Georgia authorities for a restraining order against former all-pro Bronco Tight End Shannon Sharpe, asserted that Sharpe forced her to have sex with him repeatedly and that he was "stalking" her. Something about Shannon Sharpe "stalking" a women sounded kind of odd to most people. Still, Sharpe stepped aside from him analyst role with CBS until the matter could be resolved.
According to this article from SI.com, the Chargers' home opener will be BLACKED OUT in San Diego because the team hasn't sold the game out. The HOME OPENER!! This from a franchise that most people assume is a shoe-in to take the AFC West this year. We already knew that Chargers fans were assholes but this seals it.
Fuck realignment. I miss hating the Seahawks and admiring them at the same time.
The Broncos / Seahawks rivalry within the good old AFC West (back when it included 5 teams) was at it's hottest in the early to mid eighties when I was in my formative fan years. My dad and his occasional pals would spit venom at the TV every time Steve Largent snagged the ball. Somehow the Seahawks stand out for me.
Give John Reidy, our resident Sports Columnist (he writes for the AV Club Denver / Boulder ), credit. He called this. John's on the record having said that Colorado would go on a mighty tear in September followed by a disappointing slide. After dropping one to the D-Bags tonight in Arizona the Rockies have lost 3 in a row - all to clearly inferior teams. The "Sans", Fransisco and Diego, are pulling away.
This week Reidy joins in on the fun. We didn’t make picks week 1. In week 2 we went 9-6 with a push. Remember, folks. We’re not gamblers. We’re prognosticators with a Sports show. Have you got a Sports show?
