  • Update on Janee Thompson, and it’s not good. Her leg was broken as well as her ankle dislocated.

    Also, Matthew Mitchell was ejected from the game, and this is what he said about that:

    "I can’t comment with anything that goes on with officiating, that’s just against the rules," he told reporters after the loss. "You guys can look at the game and you can make your own judgments. I would love to have a good discussion with you, but that’s not allowed."

    That’s really all he can say without spending major money. I don’t blame him, it’s not worth it.

  • Randall Cobb seals the victory for Green Bay over Seattle Dallas.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is the heart, soul, and future of the Hornets. Apparently, MKG is having an outstanding season and nobody’s noticing. Consider:

    A lot of the credit for Kidd-Gilchrist’s improved offense goes to the work he put in with assistant coach Mark Price in the offseason. He and Price worked tirelessly on completely rebuilding his jumpshot from the ground up, to the point where it looks almost nothing like it did last season. Clifford even remarked that he’s never seen such a dramatic improvement in a player’s jumper in his entire coaching career, let alone over just one season.

    This is a young man who will work until the end of time to get better.

  • Lots of fussing going on about the Dez Bryant incompletion and its aftermath. Hey, I’m not an NFL fan, so I really don’t care. It looks to me like the rule was properly interpreted. Whether or not it’s a good rule is irrelevant at the moment.

    But it seems the officials forgot to reset the clock. I’ll bet that’s the first time that’s ever happened < / sarcasm >
