Turiaf, I actually respect. As for the other two it's a perfect match as far as my rooting interests go.

Agreed! I too am a big fan of Ronny, a 2005 GU grad. It was nice to see him earn an NBA Championship along with Erik at Miami after he bounced around a bit...including a short stint in Yakima with the Sun Kings. sunny

Adam has apparently regained his passion for the game and is playing in Serbia. At GU and in the WCC Adam was once "the man." He fell a long way while bouncing around the NBA, went back to Spokane for awhile with his wife and two kids, but is now enjoying himself again.

We may not be Adam's fans, but I'm glad to see he's back on the road to basketball enjoyment and showing some passion in his game.

I actually enjoyed watching this video of Adam; he was ejected, but you could tell the crowd loves him and loves their Belgrade Red Star team. If only we could have that crowd passion at Pilots games....

The expert on Trail Blazers draft pick Meyers Leonard carries a rifle…..

I didn’t intend to follow-up on any of the Blazers draft picks, but I found this story of Meyers Leonard compelling enough to share:
If you didn't know much of anything about Meyers Leonard when you saw him drafted by the Trail Blazers on Thursday in the first round, you knew he was tall. At 7-foot-1 1/4, he towered over NBA commissioner David Stern, and was the tallest player in the building on draft night. And if you were watching, you knew, too, that Leonard played college basketball at Illinois, but that was about it.

So who is he, really?

It's the question to ask after Portland selected Leonard No. 11 overall. And to answer that best of all, you'd have to go to a Marine military base in Camp Lejeune, N.C. Because the world's foremost expert on Meyers Leonard happens to be a U.S. Marine and "Rifle Expert" who did two tours in Afghanistan.

His name is Corporal Bailey Leonard. He's Meyers' older brother........

During Ammo's GU run SI had an article on him calling him "different" and an "intellectual" and mentioned he enjoyed reading Karl Marx and Che Guevara.... Which is interesting because everyone I talked to say all Adam did was play video games, sleep through class and take advantage of his status to impress freshman girls...

But really: Beating a Dead Horse

Hahaha and as far as Red Star Belgrade, yeesh yeah their fans are passionate, but being founded by the military and Slobodam Milosivic's ruling party for a while the team has a VERY dark history of hooliganism, especially with its rival Partizan.

Here's a taste:

And here's a book that covers the subject (and a number of other soccer-related global issues: http://www.amazon.com/How-Soccer-Explains-World-Globalization/dp/0061978051/ref=pd_sim_b_3

I have read this book and Soccernomics -- both are a great read. I would recommend them.
