    Jennings talking ... trash?

    Whether it’s playing or watching, my attitude when it comes to sports is “shut up and let your game talk.”

    And that’s not to say my game has anything to say for itself, but that’s kind of the point.

    Whether I’m any good or completely awful, I don’t need to say anything. I don’t need to talk “trash” or “smack.”

    I hate everything about it.

    Packers' Rodgers in trouble

    Nobody cares about the offensive line.

    Nobody, except the quarterback and running back.

    Nobody, except the Green Bay Packers brass, who just made Aaron Rodges the highest paid player in the NFL.

    And now, the Packers starting left tackle – the most important position on the line – is out of the season, tore his ACL during … wait for it … Family Night.

    Time to fix baseball

    Baseball has to be fixed.

    Not the slow play. Not the ridiculous salaries. Not even the drug testing.

    What needs to be fixed – along with those – are the consequences.

    Brewers, Twins all-stars

    The Minnesota Twins have three all-stars: catcher Joe Mauer, reliever Glen Perkins and outfielder Carlos Gomez.

    Oh, wait. Gomez is a Milwaukee Brewer now, that’s right.

    It is a little funny that two of the lowliest teams in the majors each have two all-stars. The Brewers other all-star for tonight’s game is Jean Segura.

    Bucks back to the drawing board

    The Milwaukee Bucks point guard options got a bit thinner Saturday.

    Atlanta’s 25-year-old point guard, Jeff Teague, will be retained. The Hawks matched the Bucks’ four-year, $32 million offer.

    Now, it’s back to disgruntled Brandon Jennings, who, sources have said, does not want to play in Milwaukee next season.

    Teague or Jennings?

    Nobody wants Brandon Jennings.

    Not even the Milwaukee Bucks … hopefully.

    Brewers need a maid (2)

    It’s time to clean house.

    The Brewers are awful. Big surprise. They have the fourth-worst record in baseball (35-51) behind the Miami Marlins (32-54), Houston Astros (32-56) and Chicago White Sox (34-50).

    They aren’t going to win anything any time soon and the couple studs they have are in their prime. But if they’re not winning with them now, then it’s time to ship them, right?

    Goodbye J.J. Hello O.J. ... Mayo that is.

    The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly signed shooting guard O.J. Mayo on Wednesday, a day after trading shooting guard J.J. Reddick.

    Game 7: Spurs-Heat

    Game 7: This is all I wanted, one game for the championship.

    It makes you kind of wish every sport had a one-game playoff like the two most popular postseasons – the NFL and the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

    But, here we go, one game between two teams that are so unalike.
