Ryan Pedersen: Kawhi So Serious? Update of Local San Diego Sports
The Chargers and Padres are licking their chops of how easy it has been for the
4th time in a row San Diego Sockers PASL champions yet again! The Sockers clinch
their 14th banner in Sockers franchise history. Ryan Mathews was in attendance and
broke the trophy though.
Padres played another spring training game that went like this (snoreeeeeeeeeeee)
San Diego State University Men’s Basketball finishes it’s season 21-9 overall with a tough rematch at Thomas & Mack center versus Boise State this Wednesday night. The Aztecs had no answer for their own terrible free throw shooting problems and field goals all game and couldn’t even get toilet paper to roll their way. Heck, Boise fell asleep with less than thirty seconds to go and somehow couldn’t get that easy lay-up to go in. Critics are still iffy on the Aztecs getting an invite to the “Big Dance” feeling that they could use a few more stable wins to the resume and defeating Boise on the year would be a good start. Regardless, their record on the West Coast defeating all California teams is pretty impressive. The San Diego Chargers find themselves looking on the outside in with free agency. Last year trying to find diamonds in the rough with signings like Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem did not pan out at all. I mean, it went just horrible. New General Manager Tom Telesco says they won’t focus all their attention on big free agents but you still should sign your rock and anchors from a dreadful team. Guard Louis Vasquez and Wide Receiver Danario Alexander (who was low tendered) should be suitors to other teams with free agency under way. It would be very Charger-like and wouldn’t be surprising if they let these guys walk but hopefully they work out something to stay. Let’s not get off on the wrong track Tommy-T.
– Someone other than our cherished and beloved Ron Burgundy finally made SportsCenter on Monday for his ridiculous dunk versus Oklahoma City. Kawhi Leonard made SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays of the night at number one!
– USD Men’s Basketball coach Bill Grier is now on the hot seat after their season
ended Sunday night versus Saint Mary’s (SF) in the WCC tournament. It’s a very
“Norval-pickled” situation now for USD with wins over Pepperdine and a surprise
defeat of conference elite BYU. Look for them to probably give him one more shot
after no NCAA bids the past few years since his first year as HC. Just seeing this
reminds me of so much grand memories.
So, Kawhi so serious?
