Google Fiber applies for permission to provide television packages

Google Fiber TV

Some might remember the announcement from Google a while back that they were hooking up the good citizens of Kansas City Missouri with a fiber optic gigabit network. Google has since named its fiber optic network “Google Fiber” and has continued building out the network and is making further plans for the service. From the looks of things, Google is looking into providing more than just super-fast Internet speeds. According to The Wall Street Journal, the search giant has entered an application to the Missouri Public Service to gain permission to offer television service later this year, and its expected that Google would make a similar request in Kansas. According to sources the ability to watch TV through Google Fiber will not be free, but no official price point (or announcement, for that matter) has been set as of yet.

Yankees Demolish Devil Rays In Weekend Series

Shelly Duncan Takes Out Miguel Cairo After a Home Run
The match-up between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Devil Rays this weekend simply wasn’t fair. The overall scoring for the four games gave the Yankees a 49-26 advantage. Shelly Duncan cashed in with three home runs over the series, including two he hit today. The Yankees were toying with the Devil Rays yesterday compared to today’s offensive outburst. Andy Pettitte was superb, even though he didn’t need to be. He went six innings strong, and struck out eight. Joe Torre was stunned with the Yankees intimidating presence today.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Torre said. “Even in batting practice you don’t get hits every time you swing the bat.”

Shelly Duncan, who was called up to give the Yankees a power option at the DH couldn’t be happier after his breakout day.

“When you have a big day like this, you can’t feel content,” Said Shelley, the son of St. Louis Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan and brother of Red Birds slugger Chris Duncan. “It’s a crazy experience, you kind of get frozen in the moment.”

Larry Brown wants to coach Sac-Town?

Posted by Brendon Lindsey Categories: Front Office, NBA,

According to ESPN, Larry Brown is looking to get back into coaching, perhaps with the Sacramento Kings. After a horrible year going 23-59 with the Knicks, Brown doesn’t “...want to end my career at 23-59. I feel I can do better.” Recently Brown was linked to the Bobcats and Grizzlies, but as those vacancies have been filled Sacramento may be his final choice this season, assuming Cleveland fans don’t run Mike Brown out of town.

Brown, 66, has coached 11 teams in the NBA, ABA and NCAA, including two championship teams—one for the NBA Detroit Pistons, and one for the NCAA Champion Kansas Jayhawks (1988).

Julian Wright To Enter NBA Draft

Posted by Milo Taibi Categories: Athletes, NBA, NCAA, College Baseball, News,

Julian WrightMuch to the chagrin of Kansas head coach Bill Self, forward Julian Wright made the decision Monday to enter the NBA draft, and skip his last two college basketball years. Julian Wright insists that money was not a factor in his decision.

““Money has never been my motivation, It’s not my family’s (motivation). Mostly, just playing and feeling like I’m able to advance my game to the next level. It’s not about the money. I’m just happy and grateful to have the opportunity.”

The former McDonalds all American did not hire an agent, so he would be eligible to return to Kansas before the draft. He’s known for having superior athleticism for a player of his size (6’8 inches tall, 225 pounds). He’s played numerous positions for Kansas, including point guard, small forward, and power forward. Wright’s announcement of entering the NBA draft was fairly unexpected, as he stated numerous times that he wouldn’t enter the NBA draft no matter his performance during his sophomore season.
