Could Michael Jordan still play at 50? Who cares?

In case you have missed it, Michael Jordan is turning 50 tomorrow, coinciding with the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. We have been swamped with wall-to-wall coverage of Jordan's legacy from his six titles to his sneakers and fortunately, it has taken focus off of how incompetent Jordan is as a personnel guy.

But it also has given attention to the topic of could Jordan still play even as he hits his golden birthday. After all, it has been known that he still plays with Bobcats from time to time and still says he can take on young guys when he isn't taking team running that franchise into the ground and the reports that he beat rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in a game of one-on-one as well as his trainer saying he is ready for if he does decide to return have fueled the discussion. And to all that I say: who the hell cares?

Should Nerlens Noel's injury lead to a change of the one-and-done rule?

Last night in a loss to Florida in Gainesville, star Kentucky freshman forward Nerlens Noel suffered a gruesome leg injury after running down and blocking a shot of the Gators' Mike Rosario and it has resulted in a torn ACL. Now, his season is over and his NBA draft future is in jeopardy.

Noel was expected to enter the NBA draft after his freshman season in Lexington as so many have before and he was projected to be a high first round selection come June, with some projecting him to be the first overall selection. Now the question has to be asked, it is time for the NBA to scrap its current system of preventing players from entering the NBA draft until one year after they graduated high school?

2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Season Preview

It's safe to say that Brad Keselowski earned that enormous beer mug this past November, and the awesome ensuing "buzzed" interview, after out-dueling Jimmie Johnson to win the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup, the first for team owner Roger Penske and quite possibly the last for Dodge. Keselowski appeared to be a breath of fresh air for the sport as he was the first champion not named Johnson or Stewart since 2004, but can he repeat? It's time for my 2013 Sprint Cup Series season preview.

2013 MLB on Fox Schedule

This will be the eighteenth season of MLB on Fox and it appears to be a season in transition. First, as this is the last season under the prior television contract as starting next year, with the bulk of Fox's games going to its new sports network, Fox Sports 1, which will debut in August, there will be twelve MLB windows, down from the current 26. But more importantly, this is the final year for Tim McCarver as he will retire after this season. You probably do not remember, but McCarver used to be a brilliant broadcaster back in the day.

Anyways, here's the 2013 MLB on Fox schedule, to be filled in with announcers all season long. Enjoy.

2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series Season Preview

For the second straight year, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. was the champion of the Nationwide Series as he became  the fifth repeat champion in series history this past season. However, we will not see the first ever threepeat as the Mississippian was promoted by team owner Jack Roush to the Sprint Cup Series to replace Matt Kenseth. So in what looks to be a wide open year in the series, who will be the champion? It's time for my 2013 Nationwide Series preview.

Watch SNL spoof CBS's coverage of the Super Bowl XLVII blackout

The unprecedented blackout during Super Bowl XLVII really put CBS in a tough spot as they were forced to kill time while the league tried to sort out the problem. Their solution to the problem was to go back to the studio crew, who ended up repeating much of what they had already said over and over. Therefore, it was ripe for a parody by Saturday Night Live. Let's go to the videotape.
