Ask A Sports Chick: Russell Wilson for MVP, the Merits of Tinder, and Kanye West

By December 6, 2013June 18th, 2018No Comments


Unicorns do exist. They come in the form of girls that love sports. We’ve got a resident unicorn on the Bacon Sports team and you can ask her whatever you’d like. Really, anything. That’s why we created “Ask a Sports Chick”.

Meet our unicorn, Taina. She is from Chicago and is currently battling a life-long sports addiction. She is a lover of all food and whiskey, and hater of the NFL offseason. You can submit your “Ask a Sports Chick” questions here or you can tweet them to @TainaMolina. We’ll be doing this as a weekly piece every Thursday so we definitely want to hear what you’ve got.

Also, don’t forget to check out Rob and Taina’s weekly Fresh n Stunna Podcast. They dish sports absurdity with a random goofiness unlike anyone else.


Q: Name a coach from any point in history in each of the four major leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) that you would want to play for if you were a pro athlete.

A: NFL: People are going to hate my answer to this, but I’m going with Bill Belichick. All the scandals/spygates aside, the man continues to win. I don’t know what makes him so successful, but if I’m a pro athlete, I want to be coached by the best and I want to win. To me, Bill Belichick covers both of those categories easily.

MLB: Joe Maddon. I think Maddon could be best friends if I weren’t hypothetically playing for him.

NBA: Easy. Gregg Popovich.

NHL: Quenneville. Is an explanation needed?


Q: Russell Wilson: love him or hate him, the kid is unreal. Do you think he has a shot at being MVP this year?

A: I’ll be honest with you, last year I didn’t see anything mind-blowing about Wilson. Obviously talented, but I just didn’t get it and/or refused to believe the hype. This year there is no denying it. The kid is damn good. It’s exciting to watch but it also sucks.

He definitely has a shot at being MVP. He outplayed Drew Brees (and his own running backs) this week and that definitely moved him up in the discussion. I guess we’ll see how December plays out, but I wouldn’t mind seeing the kid win it over Manning.


Q: Which coach’s mistake was worse this week: Jason Kidd or Mike Tomlin?

A: Both sucked but Tomlin’s sucked more because it was at my emotional expense. I don’t care about intention. If you’re the head coach of an organization and the leader of the squad, you don’t do it. Plain and simple. How hard could it possibly be to not be on the football field in which the game is being played? Why are you facing away from the ball? What was he looking at? Why did he laugh afterwards? I have so many questions.

And we dished about Jason Kidd on the Fresh n’ Stunna podcast this week, so make sure you listen. But Jason Kidd, come on man. Get yourself together.


Q: What do you think of guys who use Tinder? It’s just picking up where I live, but it seems pointless.

A: Ahhhh Tinder. Where do I start? Tinder is interesting. It used to be known as a ‘hook up app’, right? But now it’s like spiraling out of control and into this dating/ type of deal. I used it for a week and I just could not get into it. You ‘like’ hot people, and you ‘dislike’ the others that don’t meet your standards. You could chat if you want, or you can just sit there ‘matched’ and have no discussion. The idea is pretty cool in theory since it’s mainly distance based, so more power to guys that can slay with the help of it. But, isn’t that what alcohol and bars are for? I’m confused.


Q: Name 3 non-athlete celebs of any kind you would want court side with you for a Bulls playoff game?

A: When you think I’m crazy for the answers I’m about to give, please remember this is a Bulls playoff game so I’m biased with who I want around me.

1. Jay-Z (I mean, it’s Jay-Z. No one looks cooler court side.)

2. Vince Vaughn (duh)

3. Cheif Keef (He would be fun and/or get us kicked out. This guy is the wild card.)


Q: What were you favorite three things about the Bacon Sports Beer Celebration? And which outfit do you remember the most?

My three favorite things were the DJ, the bacon, and the beer. This question was too easy, bud.

My favorite outfit was the dude who wore a full-blown bear suit (think Blake from Workaholics). And on top of the bear suit? A Chicago Bears jersey because of course. He and his brother were gems.


Q: Being from Chicago, what are your thoughts on Kanye West? There is no way you can honestly like a guy that is that big of an asshole.

A: I’m obsessed with Mr. West and I don’t care about what anyone thinks. I think he is brilliant. He is a musical genius. Can you tell me with a straight face that you don’t love 90% of his music? No. You can’t. Yes, he is kind of an asshole but he has always been an asshole. The only reason people are paying him any attention now is because he is successful.

I have a theory that all these public rants and interviews are part of Ye’s plan. He is stringing all the haters and media hags along and he is laughing at how much money he is making off of you all as he falls asleep in his custom leather jogging suit. ‘Ye always wins. Always.
