Monday morning. Your alarm goes off for the first time in two days, you head back to the office and then spend the first few hours of the workday planning out how you’ll survive until closing time on Friday. Luckily, Poker Central and Death Wish Coffee have you covered. The world’s strongest coffee gives you a “Morning Perk,” recapping the weekend sports action on Monday and then the best from across the internet on Friday.
The sports calendar tends to ebb and flow over the course of the year and while this weekend may have been more low tide, as compared to the roaring higher tides of next weekend’s NCAA Basketball Conference Tournament schedule, there was still plenty to keep you entertained no matter what your sport of choice is. From someone running so fast that you could have literally missed it if you blinked, to one of the greatest rivalries in sports, to an attempted murder, this weekend had everything and more.
If Steve Harvey is thanking Warren Beatty, Kyrie Irving is thanking Arian Foster this weekend. The retired NFL running back went on a long-winded Twitter rant, mostly with himself, about how he could beat a wolf in a fight. The main reasons being wolves lack of opposable thumbs, wolves not being able to read and wolves not knowing biology. Congrats Kyrie, you are off the hook for “Dumbest Comment by a Professional Athlete in 2017”. Good luck finding someone to take that title from you Arian.
