Noobie, Noobie, Noob (2/24)
We just have to share the hotness sometimes (Fridays, actually).
Noob of the Week:
Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich granted Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" an interview this week, without knowing that the show was a comedy. At one point, the confused governor had to ask an off-camera aide "is he teasing me, or is that legit?"
Noob Sports Trade of the Week:
The Cavaliers dealt Mike Wilks for Ronald "Flip" Murray. Murray, averaging 9.9 ppg this season, will step in at shooting guard for the injured Larry Hughes, who is out for the remainder of the regular season. Flip is certainly no All Star, but we're shocked that the Sonics accepted Mike Wilks as fair compensation for him. The 26 year old Wilks was not drafted coming out of Rice and averaged only 6.8 minutes per game this year, unable to crack a PG rotation of Eric Snow and Damon Jones. Plus, the Sonics had addressed their need for a backup PG with the addition of Earl Watson from Denver. How did GM Rick Sund not at least get a pick thrown in the deal?
Noob Sports Petition of the Week:

Noob Sports Career Change of the Week:
Noob Sports Summit of the Week:
The First Annual Atrocious GM Summit. The NBA's All Star Game and trading deadline have brought the best out in the Sports Guy.
Noob Sports Gambling Lock of the Week:
Shane Mosley over Fernando Vargas by decision, 7-5 odds.
Noob Sports Inspirational Story of the Week:
From loyal reader Kristin W., the story of a high school wrestler who is using sports to help cope with the loss of his parents. Hey, its not all fun and games around here...
