Back To School

Well...seeing that the last blog was for March Madness, I'm either approaching Bill Simmons status or just completely neglected blogging for the summer. Regardless, it is time to get back in the game and keep this up. If you have topics you want to hear about, be sure to hit us up in the comments or on Twitter, @ballsohardblog or #ballsohardblog with your ideas.

Now, with many kids heading back to school today, or already there in some parts of the country, I thought I'd take a little bit of a "Back To School"/Superlative feel to today's blog, quick hitting some of the summer's hottest topics with my favorite reply: the Twitter 140 characters or less answer. Want to hear more on one or more of these, just let me know. With that, here we go:

Johnny Football: Class Clown. Johnny, all you have to do is be a kid and play ball for ONE more year and then you can screw up all you want. Don't blow it.

A-Rod: Class Gossip. Should have been gone for life. Stop fighting it/lying. But, since you're better contribute.

Nets Moves: Boldest. Brooklyn, we go hard. 2 shots at most. Best starting 5, maybe ever. Rookie coach could be downfall if health isn't.

Celtics: Most Changed Since Frosh Yr. (08) Hard to let PP/KG go but had to. Love Stevens. Be patient, C's fans, the reward could be great in a few.

Aaron Hernandez: Sloppiest. How NOT To Commit Murder: 101. Apparently the Patriot Way & attention to detail didn't resonate off the field for 81.

Wes Welker: Most Talkative. See ya, Wes. Just go play football, stop talking about the Pats & BB. Oh, and be ready for a crack across the middle in Nov.

Dwight Howard: Biggest Flirt. He's like a serial dater. Wanted more in ORL, got it in LA and failed, hinted at EVERYWHERE but picked HOU. Good luck.

Bruins & The Cup: Cutest Couple That Never Was. Hell of an entertaining run that inspired Boston after the bombings. Fell short but fun to watch.

Tim Tebow: Most School Spirit. Have to give it to him, he never quits, even when he should. Not a QB. Either accept a FB/TE role or get in the booth.

Yasiel Puig: Most Likely To Succeed. A breath of fresh air in MLB. Should have been All-Star. Rough cut, but got me back watching & made LA a contender.

There you have it. 10 stories from the summer. Think I'm off base on any of them? Did I miss something? Leave it in the comments below.
