While there is unfortunately no baseball being played during the winter months, we normally have the Hot Stove to keep us warm with endless rumors and huge contracts being handed out by teams who will inevitably regret it. Until this past winter, that is. The free agent market just wasn’t any good , and Yoenis Cespedes was the only player on the open market to secure a guarantee above $100 million (four years, $110 million, to be exact )
We all remember when Tony Romo gave that incredibly moving speech about how he was passing the torch to rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, after having previously been the team’s signal-caller since 2003. Romo said all the right things, and had fans feeling bad for him, and also having a lot of respect for Romo in the way he handled the situation. But it sure looks like he was just trying to avoid being a distraction with the season going on, and the Cowboys looking to make a playoff push.

Cowboys need to trade Tony Romo before situation gets ugly
Jerry and Stephen Jones are at the Spring League Meetings and he revealed a few thoughts on free agency and the Cowboys draft needs. On Free Agency, Stephen says: “Now let me be real clear, if a great offensive player shows up that’s of great value to us, that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to pick an offensive player.

In his second season with the San Antonio Spurs, 27-year old guard Jonathon ‘the Juice’ Simmons has carved a role for himself in the Spurs’ rotation, as he usually checks into games to give Kawhi Leonard a break, while he runs as the backup three with the Spurs’ second unit. On a nightly basis, Simmons is the Spurs’ 7 th playmaker with a usage percentage of 17.7% of the team’s possessions on offense.
Roy Williams is 66 years of age, and he can dance better than I can, which I’m not even ashamed to admit. We’ve all seen his eccentric yet classy suits he can pull off wearing during games, but we don’t usually see him show much emotion on or off the court. Williams is usually cool, calm and collected.
Some of you may be aware that my ‘day job’ is as a High School teacher. It was the end of the quarter yesterday, so that means students scramble to finish up missing assignments and stress a bit over final exams. Inevitably, some students step up and finish what they need to pass the class while others figure they’re so far away from passing they give up and take the ‘F.’ Yet, the most frustrating set of students is the small group that are incredibly close to passing your class but they won’t do the few small things left to get a passing grade.
