Biography

Here at Troy's Thoughts on Sports, there are no flashy pictures, objective opinions or 3-post-a-day features. There are, indeed, however, plenty of colorful expletives being emitted in excessive fashion (trying to tone it down, sometimes) and valid truths between the lines in the guise of opinions. Don't be afraid to opine your own.

TROY: Jeff Fisher Must Go

XB23c20x_400x400

Today’s performance convinced me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a wholesale change is needed (yet again) for the St. Louis Rams. As early as four weeks ago, I would have bristled at the thought. However, after witnessing what can only be viewed as a horrendous offensive effort of massive proportions surpassing even the …

TROY: The Warriors are Gonna Win the 2015 NBA Finals

XB23c20x_400x400

Cool shit. I’m called ’em overrated earlier in the season, and now they are gonna go ahead and win the title. I reckon the San Antonio Spurs would have beaten them had they played in the postseason, but San Antonio shit on themselves in the first round against the LA Clippers, so that matchup never …

TROY: Detractors of Frankie Edgar, Why?

XB23c20x_400x400

Some dumbfuck from Bloody Elbow*dubbed Frankie Edgar a “point fighter extraordinaire”. Everybody has a right to an opinion, but some of that site’s writers must be terribly bored. On Saturday morning (here in the states), over in the Philippines, Edgar defeated Urijah Faber by unanimous decision, and it’s pretty damn clear he’ll take the winner …

TROY: The Shills of the Garbage Supplement Company That is MusclePharm

Blog word.

It’s unbelievably how far supplement companies (companies in general, but I’m going to bag on supplement companies in this post) go to avoid having any negative reviews toward their products. The supplement business in fitness is huge. I’m not going to crunch numbers, but the amount of money poured into things like vitamins, minerals, herbs, protein …

TROY: Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds and PEDs

blog

I follow the St. Louis Cardinals, lightly pay attention to the Atlanta Braves, and outside of that, I don’t pay much attention to whatever else is happening in baseball. The 162-game regular season isn’t my cup of tea (although cheap beer and summertime ball do go hand in hand and I love it), albeit I …

TROY: Donald Sterling is a Racist Bigot, but?

stlcardslogo

(Time to be a little controversial) My mind is blown by how many people in America have sheepishly bought into the political correctness that has outright infected this nation. I’m not one to engage in political talk, because I find that it’s useless (a middle ground is rarely ever met in politics, and politicians are …

TROY: Ray Rice and the Lunacy of the NFL

SJ

Or should I say “the lunacy of one Roger Goodell”? Who makes this stuff up? In the NFL, players might get four games for PEDs (performance enhancing drugs), but a player that’s a criminal might only get two. Ray Rice knocked his girlfriend*the fuck out. Read that sentence above a few times. Regardless of whether …

TROY: HP Chromebook 14 Review

SJ

For the last week I’ve been playing around with this HP Chromebook 14 (which explains all the posts since last Monday). I actually purchased this for my mother, but she’s yet to give up using her old HP Pavillion laptop, which is prone to good ol’ overheating and a battery that kicked the bucket last …

TROY: There’s No Joking in Baseball: Adam Wainwright, Derek Jeter and the All-Star Game

SJ

In an interview last night during the MLB All-Star game, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said he*grooved*a pitch to Derek Jeter to ‘help the old man’ out. Clearly, it was a damn joke. Anybody who wields a modicum of an iota of a sense of humor can understand such a statement. But because we …

TROY: Bulls Fans, Breathe a Sigh of Relief ? Carmelo Anthony is Staying with the Knicks

blog

I saw somebody use this (upcoming) logic on a forum recently: The Chicago Bulls’ offensive output is anemic,*ergo the addition of Carmelo Anthony*equals points (paraphrased). That’s the logic of the typical NBA fan who idealizes the real life game by conflating it with a video game mentality. In real life, it doesn’t work that way. …
