Google Video & NBA Team Up

Google Video & NBA Team Up

If you are a geek of any kind you know that this past week was CES where Google announced an online video store among other things.  Usually, Google knows what they are doing, but their partnership with the NBA has me puzzled a bit.  You can now purchase a video of an NBA game for a price of $3.95 just days after the game is played.  Want to watch the Sixers performance against the Sonics this past Monday?  No?  Are you sure?

One area I could see this potentially working is in Classic Games.  Want to watch the game where A.I. blew up for 60?  Maybe.  I could see the appeal to buying a game where something classic happened.  But your average meaningless NBA game?  No thanks.

Google Video does have some great aspects to it, you can watch Tom Cruise Kill Oprah or My Lovely Lady Lumps.  Dude's got dance moves like the Birdman.  For hours of time wasting time check out their popular videos.

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.

The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.

Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.

The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.

It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.

While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.

This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.

The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Joel Embiid really trusts the process. 

And he'll tell you as much over and over.

In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.

By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.

And he does. Trust the process.
