Wilt Chamberlain’s Sunday News and Views

Wilt was the obvious choice for the News and Views, considering we are a sports blog and today would be his 74th birthday.  Unfortunately, he’s gone so we can’t get all 20,000 hook-up stories from the Don Juan himself.  Oh well.  We’ll keep late night post short and just hit the highlights of today (there weren’t too many). Other notable birthdays worth consideration:  Hayden Panettiere, Count Basie, Kenny Rogers, Usain Bolt, Kim Catrall.  For two of those, I say ‘would’.  You can guess.  (hint: I want to have rich, fast athletes for children).

The Goodman League from D.C. beat the Drew League from L.A. 135-134 in the Capital Punishment gameWall had 28, and 6 of his teams final ten down the stretch.  Cousins stats are unavailable, but Durant was the MVP with 44 points.  The good guys (Wildcat guys) win, again.

NFL Preseason games took place with former Cats in them.  Glenn Pakulak (OAK) had 3 punts, with an avg of 29.7, long of 48, and one inside the 20.  Jeremy Jarmon (DEN) had a solo tackle, Wesley Woodyard (DEN) had 5 tackles, 2 assisted, and Braxton Kelley (DEN) didn’t get in the box score.  Stevie Johnson (BUF) had one catch for 11 yards.

UK football scrimmaged today.  Scroll down for Tyler Thompson’s post to check out the juicy nuggets from the final scrimmage.

Darius Miller and U.S. team lost to Lithuania in disappointing fashion.  It doesn’t seem Darius got much of a chance to help out his team, only attempting 2 shots.

The first AP college football top 25 poll came out.  Ehhhh, not that interesting.

Rex Chapman released the best karaoke video ever, jorts included.  Best rendition of “When Doves Cry” since Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.

See you guys in the morning.  Highlight reels from the Capital Punishment game will make their way to the site, so we can all watch Cousins and Wall put on a show, as usual.

    Hate to be nit-picky, but he would have been 75, birthdate was in 1936.

    I bet Wilt’s ghost has banged at least 3 million banshees already.

    I would be virtually impossible for a man to sleep with 20,000 different women. He was 63 when he died. If he started having sex when he was 16, he would have to had sex with 9 different women every 8 days every day of his life. I call bs. 2000 would be unbelievable.

    JBR-Just go away. If you hate Miller so much, why not start a petition to get him off the team? Maybe you can replace him yourself, or perhaps you are hiding a seasoned player that knows Cal’s system.

    I remember when I was a kid in the early 70’s— there was a joke about Richard Nixon, his wife, Wilt and a bedpost.

    (6) why don’t you go back to your pissed off world and leave innocent people alone? too much to ask?

    7. Do the math. I believe Wilt claims to have actually spent quality time with 3 women per day. Apparently when you have access to the cupboard 24/7 3 squares is what you get.

    You also have to take in mind that Lithuania is just about on the level of USA when it comes to basketball, and like having Kentucky streched across your chest, USA is everyone’s superbowl!

    Happy Birthday, Big Dipper! And I choose to believe that Wilt had 20,000 notches on his bedpost. Faith is about believing the unbelievable.

    7–if he had one woman every day for 47 years (from age 16) it comes (i said comes) to 17155, or just over one a day, if my math is correct. not too hard to believe of someone of his celebrity and money, and stature.

    Very nice way to say that Darius turned into his old self in a clutch game….

    Most of you, except #15, needs to take a refresher course in Math. 20,000 divided by 365 days equals 54.79 years. Personally I think he’s exaggerating a little.

    Joe Strummer would’ve been 59 today. The Clash was one of the few 70s punk bands with actual musical talent and ability. The Ramones and the Sex Pistols are garbage.

    On an unrelated, was there any mention back home of Stevie Johnson and his near fight w/ a Broncos CB? Rahim Moore got a really cheap and dirty hit (helmet to helmet on an defenseless player in the air) against one of the other Bills WR. If he were James Harrison, he’d be getting a six figure fine. Well, Stevie didn’t seem to like that and looked like he was gonna kill the guy. It took most of the Broncos D to hold Stevie back, and a few words from Wesley Woodyard to calm him down.

    It reminded me of something you would see a veteran or team leader do in defense of one of his teammates. I’ve read how Stevie wants to be more of a team leader this season. Of course, the Lee Evans trade makes him that team’s veteran/leader WR by default now. It was about the only thing worth noting in a game b/w two teams that will not be very good this season.

    Oh yeah, it also looks like Tebow is 3rd string for the Broncos now behind Brady Quinn. Ha ha ha.
