    THE DFW SPORTS MIX ...

    If the Dallas Mavericks find a way to get in the NBA playoffs as the eighth place team, they will faceSan Antoino. And i think the Mavs can push the Spurs 7 games base on what I saw in the recent meeting of these two teams. The 92-91 win by the Spurs shows that when these two teams play it’s close and tight. It also showed that the Mavs recent improvement of play should not be overlooked. With Utah, LA Lakers, Porland, and Houston battling the Mavs for that last playoff spot in the West, getting wins is huge with over a month to go. The Mavs will benefit from being at home a lot to round out…

    THE DFW SPORTS MIX ...

    The one thing i don’t like going into a new baseball season is drama. We got plenty of it with the Texas Rangers and their front office shake up. Current General Manager Jon Daniels is looking at the title of Baseball Operations manager. The title Nolan Ryan has now. Jon Daniels is a baseball wiz kid, who know about the sport and plays moneyball when need be. However, for all the baseball smarts, that belongs to Nolan Ryan. He has all the baseball smarts, and the support of the players who look up to Nolan. Not that many folks are happy at the way Daniels treated Michael Young, who is now a…

    Moody Coleseum has been the home to some great basketball moments at SMU, and a lot players who became legends inside that arena. Players like Gene Phillips, John Koncak, the great E.O Doc Hayes coached there. Ira Terrel played there to name a few. It opened in the mid 50’s, and it was a model arena for its time. Pro basketball was played there with the old ABA Dallas Chapparals, numerous concerts, it held lots of events. Moody is getting a facelift, both inside and out. It will be done before the 2013 basketball season, and the next time you will see it will have new suites, a new…

    Another NBA All Star Weekend in the books. Houston Texas hosted basketball’s love fest featuring Hollywood stars who love hoops, and the current and former players who spent time on the hardwood. Speaking of Hollywood, actor Kevin Hart won the MVP in the celebrity game. In the real game, it was a continuation that basketball on the west coast is changing to a Clipper feel. The Lakers Kobe Bryant can brag that he blocked LeBron James twice in this game. But it was Chris Paul who shined in this game. Scoring and dishing off the ball was MVP stuff. 15 asisist helped the West beat the East…

    DFW SPORTS MIX 02 14...

    The business of footbal continues long after the final bits of confetti has been swept off the floor of the Louisiana Superdome. The Baltimore Ravens had their victory parade, now the draft talk begins. NFL combine talk has started. But the high school recruting has ended. Another banner recruiting year for the Southeastern Conference. But Texas A&M has made a big splash and that momentum built by their sucessful first year in the SEC, and Johnny Mainzel’s Heisman trophy win has blue chip players going to College Station instead of Austin. Texas A&M lead all major colleges in Texas with the…

    THE DFW SPORTS MIX ...

    Famous last words from former Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan. «I will get another job in 5 minutes. Well it did not take 5 minutes, but it was quick for Rob Ryan to get a job with the St Louis Rams. But just when Rob was about to get into his seat, the Rams fired him. The reason was philospic reasons was the reason why Rob was let go. That was kinda weird how that happened. The Rams hired him and no formal interview too place. As of now, Rob is out of a job. He will get hired by another team, but it won’t take five minutes to be hired again.
    The Dallas Cowboys did not make…

    March is going to be fun if you are a hoops fan. Lots of action to get you ready for March Madness. First the Big 12 Womens Tournament is comoing to the Americn Airlines Center on March 7 to the 10th. Which means you will get a look at Baylor’s Britney Griner. I saw her in Waco recenty, she helped the Bears beat Oklahoma. But in that game, she made history by being the new NCAA women’s basketball all time shot blocking leader. She will be the Big 12 all time scoring leader by the beginning of the tournament. Britney can influence the game three ways, by her offense scoring point and getting…

    THE DFW SPORTS MIX ...

    For a while it looked like we would have a Manning Brothers Super Bowl in New Oreleans. Pitting Payton and Eli head to head in a winner takes the Super Bowl battle. But as the playoffs went along, Eli did not make the tournament and his brother Peyton got done in by Baltimore. Instead we have another Super Bowl family affair with the Harbaughs. The 49er’s Jim and the Ravens John dueling it out in the Superdome. These two teams pretty much
    mirror one another. And their trip through the playoff were about the same. The Niners were down 17 points to Atlanta on the road, overcame that to beat…

    In a radio interview, Dallas Cowboys Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones said that he would make things unconfortable at Valley Ranch And he was not joking
    around. The Pokes canned Rob Ryan after two years of being the teams Defensive Coordinator. Two things from this, one Rob had to work with players who came off the couch. And with the players he had during the latter part of the season they did okay. But there was a drop off with Bruce Carter and Shawn Lee going down with injuries that sidelined them for the year. So Rob had to work with Home Deopt Employees as players, and everyday…
