Week 7 Quick Hits

I spent most of my time this week writing my Politics post from yesterday, so today’s NFL post is a bit lacking. But, there are some things I want to talk about, so I’ll just rapid fire them.

Interviews: Bryan Allain

A few weeks ago, I asked some of my good friends and fellow bloggers a few sports related questions and most of them were gracious enough to answer. Today, we will hear from Bryan Allain. He blogs at bryanallain.com and tweets at @bryanallain. On top of all of that, he wrote the best (and funniest) book on blogging I have ever read, 31 Days To Finding Your Blogging Mojo.  He has been a huge mentor for me in this writing process. Check him out!

NOPE List: Crazy Sports

This is a continuation of my weekly Nope! List. Things that are featured here are things that will make you say “NOPE!” when you see/read/hear them. It may be stories, pictures, videos, basically whatever I find in my forays around the interwebs. Let me know in the comments or email (austingilly@gmail.com) if you know of something that should be featured!

I don’t think it’s a secret that I love sports. Some would say that I love them a bit too much. I would disagree. The Olympics start today, in case you hadn’t heard, and there is no shortage of weird, crazy competitions in this celebration of athleticism. Things like shooting, equestrianism, trampolining, archery (and shooting), and speedwalking all make an appearance in this summer’s games. In past Olympics, you could have watched live pigeon shooting, tug of war, rope climb, and solo synchronized swimming.

NBA Finals 2012

Ok, I know it’s been forever since my last post (3 weeks actually) and I’m sorry. Life has been crazy, but I promise I’ll get better.

I am very excited about these NBA Finals. As you may have guessed from my previous NBA posts, I am a huge Spurs fan. Losing to the Thunder was/is hugely disappointing,  but, they are a team I can get behind and cheer for (as opposed to, say, the Lakers). I’m begrudgingly happy for the Thunder, and I’m sure once the game starts tonight, I’ll be just fine. Unless they lose.
