This is really on point

imageAre you truly productive? That’s a question you may want to ask yourself with some regularity. We… you, me and everybody else has the uncanny ability to trick ourselves into believing that we are incredibly productive when in fact we’re merely busy.

Busy and productive are two entirely different things!

Busy is about doing stuff. Productive is about doing stuff for a purpose. Busy is about looking like your accomplishing something. Productive is about actually accomplishing it. Busy is about wondering what happened to the hours in your day. Productive is about knowing exactly how you used your time.

Busy people hope for a productive day. Productive people plan a productive day.

Their plan is based on their goals and objectives. They determine what they will do and when they will do it based on priorities that come straight out of their goals. They strive to be doing the most…

ESPN announced the 2015 SEC spring game schedule on Thursday. You are aware of the business relationship between the SEC and ESPN, aren’t you? Anyway, all 11 remainingSEC spring games (Kentucky and Texas A&M will not hold spring games, Vanderbilt’s was on Saturday) will be shown on SEC Network properties but, interestingly enough, none of them will actually be on SEC Network properties.

Instead, SEC Network+ – the digital home of SECN, basically the network’s version of ESPN3 – will show most games while SEC Network Alternate – the network’s overflow channel – will provide whip around coverage. All games will be shown on replay on SEC Network throughout the following week.

Here’s the schedule:

April 11
SEC Spring Whip Around (noon-4 p.m. ET) – SEC Network Alternate
South Carolina (noon ET) – SEC Network+
Florida (12:30 p.m. ET) – SEC Network+
Ole Miss (1 p.m. ET) – SEC…

Hawks win. Answer critics and panic stricken fans with Fierce 4th Qtr vs Magic

26 Mar Jeff Teague

Jeff Teague

The Hawks unleash a blistering 24-3 run late in the 4th quarter to erase a 7 pt Orlando Magic lead to beat them 95-83.

After a poor start and 2 1/2 uninspired quarters, the Hawks went back to playing their brand of basketball: Active hands & communication on defense, hot shooting from behind the arc, and taking advantage of any lapse by the Magic. The win also exhibited a toughness shown by Paul Milsap’s dominance in the 1st half and Jeff Teague taking over the game in the 4th quarter

Hawks return to take on the Miami Heat. They are partnering with rapper and potential mayoral candidate 2 Chainz to provide fans with a pregame and half time entertainment. Very interesting

College FB and NFL less than 1 generation away from falling from their perch as premier Sports in US

Who would’ve thought the guy from the football independent would be at the forefront of the Great College Football Reclassification (name pending)?

Speaking to CBSSports.com’s Dennis Dodd Wednesday, Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick envisioned a future where there are the Football Bowl Subdivision is further splintered into two sub-subdivisions. “There’s going to be Congressional intervention (in college athletics) or there’s going to be more than one intercollegiate athletic association ….” Swarbrick said. “You don’t like these set of rules? Go play in that association.”

Rather than the fancied have/have-not divide many envision, Swarbrick sees a split coming between public schools and privates.

“Forget the economics, the cultural divide in college athletics is getting too big. Any business association requires commonality of interests to hold together,” he said. “The Oregon and Stanford economic models are similar. Their approach to sports couldn’t be more different.”

The Great Divide is a lot like the Four…

Yep, another bowl game is on the horizon. Don’t worry, though, this one won’t get us any closer to a 5-7 MAC team playing a 5-7 Mountain West foe in Missoula, Mont., or anything like that.

No, this one actually has a good reason for existing beyond dollar signs. The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) jointly announced with ESPN the creation of the Celebration Bowl on Wednesday, pitting the two historically black leagues’ champions on an annual basis.

“This is a great opportunity for our schools and student-athletes to compete on a national stage and showcase the talent that exists within HBCUs. And to have it during bowl season, the most exciting time in college football, is a bonus,” said SWAC commissioner Duer Sharp in a statement.

In conjunction with ESPN Events, the inaugural Celebration Bowl will be held Dec. 19 at the Georgia Dome…

Hawks win over Cavs a tale of 3 “N” s

8 Mar hawks win over Cavs

The Atlanta Hawks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-97 in front of a SRO crowd at home. Phillips Arena was electric for the arrival of Lebron James and the public unveiling of the statue of Hawk legend Dominique Wilkins

In the end is was a tale of 3 N;s ‘Nique week, (Atlanta) Night Life, and New attitude

IMG_3174IMG_3186hawks win over Cavs

  1. ‘Nique week-It was the culmination of a week of honors for the man called the “Human Highlight. The charged up crowd again helped spur the Hawks to this win
  2. Night life- Like so many players do when they come to Atlanta it is alleged that LeBron was seen out a well known night spot in the ‘A’. He at times lacked energy, and seemed to be a bit tired….Just saying
  3. New attitude-The Hawks clearly have a different attitude. They believe they can beat anybody, anywhere. There is a confidence and resiliency that this team has that allows them to play from behind, and put away teams when they have leads

After seeing them twice in the last 2 weeks, we once again say the Hawks are now a favorite to go to and win the NBA Finals
