Nine geniuses leave LeBron off MVP ballot

In case you were wondering if sports writers could be objective observers who dispassionately covered LeBron James in the wake of “The Decision,” we get news that nine of these jackwagons left the best player on the second-best team in the Eastern Conference off their MVP ballots. Derrick Rose won the award going away, garnering 113 first place votes, while Dwight Howard of the Magic finished second. James, who was second in the league in scoring to Kevin Durant, averaging 26.7 PPG on 51 percent shooting, finished third — thanks largely to nine Mensa members who felt he wasn’t among the five most valuable players in the league.

Good job, fellas. You all grow up in Cleveland?

Guest Picker Darren Rovell Tweets Mark Herzlich Selection In UFL Draft

The UFL Draft took place on Twitter Monday night and CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell had the opportunity to guest tweet the No. 51st pick for the Omaha Nighthawks.

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich was passed on in the NFL Draft last weekend because of his battle with cancer but will at least have an opportunity to play football in the UFL in case free agency doesn’t work out.

“When I was diagnosed with cancer, I was told I couldn’t play football again,” Herzlich told NESN.com’s Jeff Howe on Monday. “Not getting drafted was frustrating. It’s like they’re saying I can’t play football again, but I’m going to work out, and there’s free agency. I’m just going to work hard, get into a camp, go from there and prove it to everyone that I belong in the NFL. But there will be free agency. In the past, free agency would have already started, and I’d probably be on a team right now. We’ll wait to see how that goes.”

Get Raw as WWE's New Corporate Communications Publicist

Are you tired of wrestling with your job search? Well, World Wrestling Entertainment is looking for a publicist to join its corporate communications team. The gig is based in WWE’s Stamford, Conn. headquarters, but there may be an opportunity to work out of their New York City office, too,

If hired, you’ll work with the public relations and marketing teams on developing and executing plans and programs to increase visibility for WWE’s individual business units, strategic partnerships and products. You’ll also guide national and local print, TV, digital, radio, and trade outlet coverage for the brand and its senior management.

To be considered, you’ll need at least four years of experience in corporate communications, preferably at a media, entertainment or sports company. You should have established media contacts across various outlets, and be on top of current cultural trends. Those who can think out of the box and are willing to travel, should apply here.

NHL, Officials Agree to New Deal Without Any Drama

Well that was easy. The NHL and its officials have a brand new four-year deal, all spiffy and ratified.

At a time when the NBA and the NFL are on the verge of work stoppages, it’s nice to see someone solving problems constructively and simply. Granted, the money isn’t close to the same, but still: no games, no shots in the media, just actionable solutions.

“We are pleased to have reached a new agreement with our officials,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told the AP. “We look forward to working closely with our officials to ensure that the quality of our game continues to be the best that it can be.”

We might not have basketball or football in 2011, but we’ll always have hockey.
