It was a busy weekend for Bigs and I. He was off representing our fine college establishment at nationals while I was busy with flag football tournaments and a Modest Mouse concert …that's just how our weekends normally roll around here.
So if the only thing you noticed this weekend was Facebook's newest, most annyoing, uncalled-for makeover, here's a rundown of this weekend's real Top 10…
10. Suns drop NBA season high 154 on the Warriors. You might be asking why is this news? But the Suns need to get on a role badly or the most talented team in the NBA might be on the outside of the playoff picture.
9. Pudge and Astros agree to one-year deal. After hitting .600 in the WBC, how could he not be picked up. He's a natural born leader and this can't but help the Astros.
8. Dwayne drops 50…again. With the new El Heat jerseys, Mr. El Fuego is averaging almost 35 points a game. Can you say MVP? He's quitely having one of the greatest NBA season's in the past five years.
7. Puerto Rico makes USA cry mercy. Puerto Rico beats USA 11-1 in the WBC, ending the game in the 7th inning with the mercy rule. This has to be the greatest thing to happen to Puerto Rico since Ricky Martin.
6. Stallworth hits and kills medestrian. More drama for a high profile receiver…am I the only one who sees a trend here?
5. Duke wins 9th ACC title in 12 years. Let's just face it. Coach K has built college basketball's latest dynasty with a simple formula: athletic forwards, lights-out jump shooters, and some great coaching.
4. Brodeur ties Roy's win record with 551st win. I know we're not big on hockey here, but we can't overlook one the game's greatest goalies living out his glory days.
3. Florida State upsets UNC. If this is only a preview of March Madness, we could be in for the most exciting Tournament in a long time.
2. Louisville wins Big East. Already a college basketball legend, Pitino could become the first coach ever to lead four different programs to the Final Four if Louisville lives up to their number one seed.
1. Syracuse beats UCONN in a 6 OT epic. Maybe the greatest college basketball game in my lifetime. This is must-see-ESPN Classic TV.
