IGN.com posted up a movie and preview that you can read HERE.  It’s pretty interesting up until you get to “Quickstrike Anklebreakers.”  Maybe EA Sports hit the point where they said “Screw it, 2K is the sim, we’re just going to be arcade.”  It’s very possible.

Anyways, here are the first pictures of NBA Live 09, these are from the 360… (Click to enlarge)

BREAKING: Matt Ryan on Cover of NCAA Football 2009 for PS3

Via Joystiq; Matt Ryan is on the cover of NCAA Football for the PS3.

Here is a preview… (Click to enlarge)

Also of note, here is today’s daily NCAA alt uni of the day, today is Maryland… (Click to Enlarge)

And a rant… What the hell is up with these uniforms.  If, if, Maryland makes a bowl game then where do they put the now necessary patch proclaiming to the world what bowl they are in.  As much flack as, my boy, Paul Lukas gives Nike, I missed him ranting on Under Armor on these.

Next, if you want an alternate, make it cool.  I think 75% of the time it is useless though.  I have no problem when the Lakers send Kobe and the crew out in these…

Because those are pretty easy on the eyes and one could argue that this is very close to a standard road jersey.  But trotting out in all black is such a cop out.  The trend of the 90’s was alternates, or adding black to a team’s color palette and saying “look new merch, buy it!”  In the NFL, NBA, and MLB there are as many as 15 teams that have added a large amount of black to their team’s colors.  Could you imagine if it was green?  Everyone would be bitching about how all the teams wear too much green now, couldn’t we have this same argument for too much black in uniforms now?  Please?

I’m at the zoo tomorrow, and buying new tires for the Civic tomorrow, so if anything breaks, um, you’ll have to wait.  Also, thank you, this is now the 3rd most visited month in this blog’s history.

Thank you, moment of zen…
