The Morning Update: Cincinnati Bearcats, Donald Sterling


It’s back! The Crosstown Shootout is back, finally. Following a two year ‘neutral’ site location the game is finally returning to a home and home. As a Cincinnati Bearcats fan you have to ecstatic, until you look into it. Also, if you are ever in the midst of a public relations nightmare and your client is an 80 something year old racist, do not by any means allow him to do an interview.

With the Cincinnati Reds off Monday night that left the night open for hockey. Unless you have a girlfriend then it turned into movie night. Neighbors starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron wasn’t as bad as I expected. Remember all those Zac Efron doing drugs rumors? After seeing this movie those rumors have to be 100% true, holy crap. The dude looked zooted through the whole movie, sure that was his role but damn.

Overall I’d give the movie a 6/10. It made me laugh, it also has a tone of awkward moments that make you absolutely cringe. You want to reach into the screen and tell Seth Rogen to stop it. Hannibal Burress was in the film so that essentially made my night.

And now, back to sports.

Cincinnati Bearcats

The Crosstown Shootout is back! Cincinnati will host the game February 15th, 2015 at Fifth Third Arena on campus. After a 2-year cooling off period the game now returns to a home and home. Having it at a neutral site under a toned down name killed the rivalry for the last two seasons. Playing Xavier doesn’t mean as much right now. Like I said yesterday, playing Louisville is much more appealing to me at the moment.

Mick Cronin said following the infamous brawl that he would never play in the Cintas Center again. That appears to have changed as Mike Bohn says Cronin is on board with the plan. Bohn has made no fans with this announcement, it will be interesting to see how that plays out with the fans.

Xavier always wanted the game to return to a home and home. Cincinnati is their biggest game of the year, this move back to campus was purely a money decision. Cincinnati appears to have caved to Xavier. Once again Cincinnati does not need Xavier. Xavier on the other hand needs Cincinnati.

Donald Sterling

Once again if you are ever representing an 80 something year old racist do not, I mean do not allow him to talk to anyone. Donald Sterling was already lying in his grave, he just dug himself all the way to China with his Anderson Cooper interview.

Pay attention for a minute, you cannot say “I’m not a racist” when you are recorded saying “I don’t like black people.” That last statement by definition is racist, you are in fact a racist.

Then this old cotter goes on to talk about Magic Johnson. Now look, I’m not really a Magic Johnson fan, but this guy has been dragged into this because why? He took a picture with Donald’s girl? Listen, that girl was nothing special, a solid 5 you can do better. Surely there is some racist girl from Mississippi you find attractive Donald.

He also asked Anderson Cooper if he liked girls. He asked an openly gay man if he liked girls. Did he not do any background before the interview or have his people just given up on him? Either way, don’t let this blundering idiot back on TV.

Video of the Day

This house in New Hampshire exploded. Don’t know why but apparently a police office died in a shooting at the residence. Thoughts with his family.
