Need some quick odds on the week’s biggest storylines? (“Need” might be an overstatement; kind of want?) You’ve come to the right place. Let’s run through the newsworthiest happenings and transpirings from the world of sports, entertainment, and politics from the last seven days.
Denver Broncos: 3/2
Houston Texans: 5/2
San Francisco 49ers: 4/1
If you thought Romo’s future was confusing before free agency opened, how about now? It was believed the 36-year-old was originally going to be released, but now there are talks Dallas wants to trade him. Denver still seems to be the likely target, but Houston and San Fran are in the mix as well. It doesn’t seem Houston is overly interested in trading for Romo, but if the deal is a good one, there’s a chance we could see Romo staying in the Lone Star state.
NY Jets: 2/1
Miami Dolphins: 7/2
Jacksonville Jaguars: 5/1
San Francisco 49ers: 7/1
The rumor mill has been swirling abotu Cutler’s potential landing spot since before his release from the Bears. The Jets seem to always be at the top of the list, but now the Dolphins and even the 49ers are being mentioned. Cutler has equal interest in developing a partnership with the Jets. If that doesn’t happen, heading to Miami to push Ryan Tannehill (or be a security blanket) has potential. The Jags are also in the mix, as too are the 49ers, who may still want to upgrade on Brian Hoyer. (Is Cutler an upgrade on Hoyer? Who the hell knows anymore.)
After just two seasons with Washington, Scot McCloughan was relieved of his duties on the day free agency opened. Now there are a ton of rumors out there about why he was let go, but let’s focus on one fact: Washington stinks.
Mike Mayock has emerged as the frontrunner, and the former player and current NFL analyst could soon follow in John Lynch’s footsteps. What are his credentials, you ask? He played in the league (albeit briefly) and has been a sports analyst since 1993. He’s analyzed players and teams inside and out for TV viewers, and could soon be doing so for Washington. Anything is possible!
The number one team in the nation was shocked 85-82 by TCU (19-14, 6-12 Big 12) in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament. Should Jayhawk fans hit the panic button? Not at all. They were missing Josh Jackson (one-game suspension), who’s been their best player of late, and had little to play for; they were going to be the no. 1 seed in the Midwest either way. This is still the team that won the Big 12 by four games. Frank Mason is still the frontrunner for national Player of the Year.
Los Angeles: 3/2
Budapest has become the seventh location to pull its bid for the 2024 Summer Olympic games. That leaves only two cities: Paris and Los Angeles. Both have hosted the games twice before, meaning they know what it takes to put on the big event successfully. But saying that, by the time 2024 rolls around, it would be 100 years since Paris last hosted, and 40 for Los Angeles. Both cities “want” the bid, but now instead of winning it, it feels a bit more like “who’ll take it.”
Many factors go into the decision, like terrorism (which is all too concerning for Paris these days) and environment (we all know that smog in L.A), but I say oui to the City of Lights, since it’ll be celebrating a century since the last time it hosted the event.
Despite the calls from fans and players, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman doesn’t seem to be changing his tune when it comes to allowing players to suit up for their countries at the upcoming Olympics. Bettman claims that teams don’t like the disruption of the schedule when a three-week break is implemented, not to mention star players coming back fatigued, or even injured.
If Bettman doesn’t change his mind, it would be the first time since the 1994 Lillehammer games that NHLers don’t don their country’s colors on the world stage. My guess is that we see a hiatus of NHLers on Olympic-sized ice.
