Nerves up, Heart racing, sweat on brow and upper lip.  Ball hiked pass thrown, pass tipped, and intercepted.  In a surge of anger/rage/disappointment I toss my 49er hat and Kick it up the hallway, while yelling FUUUCCCKKK!!!!  I walk right into my room strip down and go straight to bed.  Why do sports drive us so insane?

As I lay dreaming, I’m hoping that in my fit that a penalty is called, and I missed it. That the 49ers lead by Kaepernick won the game and I missed it all (granted my DVR would have been viewing).  That I would wake up to the 49ers repeating as NFC Champions.  Sadly enough that was not to come true and would remain in my dreams.

I was MISERABLE for two days.  My wife knew not to talk to me, my team members at work didn’t mention the game.  Even an open Seattle Seahawk fan I work with didn’t mention the game.  Everyone knew I was in a bad mood and it showed on my face.  How can a game that I placed no money on, that the result wouldn’t effect my life, except for my mood which is a direct result of me, change so much.  The Answer:  Passion and Love!

Sports fans all over the world know the feeling.  Some how we have built up this emotional tie to a team or person that can dictate or lives based on the results.  Even in the defeat the feeling lets us know we are alive, and in victory the joy can put a pep in our step like no other.  I have met people that their life is God, Sports, Children, Spouse, and Family.  Yes in that order!  And you can make an argument that the God is really a sport’s god.

I always say to myself, “Self if you could have that same passion for your work, or Blog you would be the most successful person ever”  and it’s true the same Passion and Love that can change my life for two days (or a week when the 49ers lost the Super Bowl) can be harnessed into my other loves then life would be even better.  So basically I’m writing this to say this year, I’m on a mission to learn how to build Passion and Love in all my walks of life and challenge everyone to do the same.  But we can never deny the rush that Sports give us and I’m thankful for the good/bad reminder that I’m ALIVE!

Ladies and Gents welcome back to the Boom Boom Room, where if your lady’s fine she can dine and if she tough she outta luck.  We have a two drink minimum tonight people and you ninjas over there in the back take your feet off my couch, cause you aint Rick James.  Shoulda never gave yall money.

The NBA had its all-star weekend in Houston and despite the influx of celebrities and NBA stars there; the league is taking a hit for the lack of All-Stars taking part in competitions such as, the slam dunk, 3point contest, or the lack of effort giving in the skills competition. So how does the league change this?  With the amount of money these superstars make it’s almost impossible to entice any of them to risk injury for fans.  David Stern, who’s on the verge of retiring, has a chance to end his reign as NBA commissioner with a “Bang!”(Sorry Mike Breen).  What do superstars with money want?  That’s right more money.  Stern has to up the ante and pay these guys; maybe a million to the winners in the 3point and skills competition and 2 million to the dunk contest winner.  While having a percentage going to their respective charities and that should make it more enjoyable to fans and get the Stars to come out before Sunday.
Onto my thoughts:
1. Been a long time since I seen an All-Star play as bad as Chris Bosh did. DAMN!!!
2. Roger Goodell made $30mil from this past season and still telling folks what to do like he underpaid. Castro, Fidel
3. Of course Kate Upton got a boob job its cold as hell in Antarctica; need the extra mass for warmth.
4. Kentucky lost by 30 points to Tennessee, Calipari must’ve been shook by NCAA and did everything by the book, because this freshmen class is… OK? I guess he didn’t pay anyone but Nerlens Noel.
5. Kyrie Irving’s a BEAST, but LBJ made the Cavs a winner.  To tae the words from JD “just saying”.
6. Alicia Keys was terrible at halftime, still fine though
7. Happy as all get out that Blue Ivy look like her mama.
8. There must be a playoff team that Alec Ogletree (UGA) was going to be drafted by at the end of 1st Rd.  So to be dumb enough to get a DUI before the combine…  #ThrowTheFlag!
9. Dwight Freeney and Charles Woodson being let go by their respective teams is surprising, especially Freeney, but if they could let go of Peyton then they damn sure could get rid of his black ass
10. As for hockey (NHL), ah well haven’t seen any hockey yet seems I got bronchitis. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

As always these are just my thoughts, right or wrong, its how I’m feeling at the time.  Now what do you think, so follow me @bprunsportsmenm.
