Who Doesn't Love March Madness?

Well, it's been well over a month since I last wrote. It was the friggin' Super Bowl! A well overdue congrats to Giants fans, I also despise you. Eli Manning to David Tyree will be seen on the highlight reels for as long as live. Now on to March Madness. Stephen Curry of Davidson is a friggin' beast. Dropping 70 points in the first two tournament games against Georgetown and Gonzaga. Don't be suprised if they make a run to the Final Four. Wisconsin is beatable, they won't play as good a shutdown defense again like they did against Beasley and Kansas State. They can definitely beat Villanova, and I can sort of see them beating Kansas, but it's a long shot. Hey, George Mason beat #1 seeed UConn and the Patriots didn't have a player at the same level of efficency as Stephen Curry. Great story, he wanted to go to Virginia Tech like his dad, Dell a former NBA sharpshooter, but they wouldn't give him a scholarship since he was too short at 5'10" or so. Well, he went to Davidson and has grown 5+ inches and is now about 6'3". In the East region North Carolina has been friggin' ridiculous raping and plundering Mount St. Mary's and Arkansas. This may be a little miss leading since, Mt. St. Mary's if from the Northeast Conference and had to win the Opening Round game against Coppin State just to get there, and Arkansas came out of a weak SEC conference which featured Vanderbilt getting whacked by #13 seed Siena by 21. The Tar Heels will beat the Cougars from Wazzu and I like Louisville over the #2 seed Tennessee Volunteers. Personally, I thought Tennessee was going to get knocked off by Butler who I thought was given a raw deal of being a #7 seed despite being in the top 10 basically all year. Louisville will knock off overall #1 seed North Carolina, as Rick Pitino continues being a genius and getting the Cardinals back to the Final Four. The the South, I don't like Memphis because I can shoot better from the free throw line then they can and I'm an awful basketball player. Don't be suprised if Memphis gets knocked off by Michigan State, Drew Neitzel is a great floor general and the Spartans always find their way into the Elite 8. I like Texas over Stanford, because DJ Augustin and AJ Abrams have been lights out so far in the tourney, but if Stanford slows down the game and Brook Lopez becomes a big factor I think Stanford could advance. Overall, I had Texas destroying Memphis in the Elite 8 and advancing to the Final Four. Just imagine how good they would be if Durant didn't leave early? In the West, I have UCLA over Western Kentucky. Courtney Lee could give the Bruins fits, but Kevin Love is one of the most underrated players in the tourney, and should be higher up in the draft boards. I think Xavier will beat West Virginia, but if Alexander plays to his potential and Ruoff is draining three's Xavier is in for some trouble. Overall, UCLA will beat Xavier pretty handily as Love, Westbrook, Collison, and Shipp lead the Bruins back to the Final Four for a remarkable third straight year. So I have Louisville, Texas, Davidson, and UCLA in the Final Four. Call me crazy, but just look at Stephen Curry, he's BEAST.

Super Bowl 42

Well the final day of the NFL season has come. Super Bowl 42, between the two teams I hate the most the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. I can't root for the Pats because honestly, if I saw Tom Brady or Bill Belicheat on the street I would most likely try to jump them. I can't root for the Giants since, they own the spotlight in New York and their fans are as cocky and as arrogant, as well, us Yankee fans. My friends have seen the Giants in the Super Bowl twice in their lifetimes, I'll be lucky if the Jets make it once. I'm rooting for multiple injuries especially to Tom Brady and Eli Manning and an extremely low scoring and boring game, I want 5+ overtimes and the final score to be like 5-2. But personally this is how I think its ending, the Patriots finish what they started going 19-0, the first undefeated season in 26 years. The knock off the Giants, 27-14, behind Tom Brady's third Super Bowl MVP performance going 19-29 for 228 yards and 2 touchdowns and no picks. It's gonna be close but the Pats are just too frickin good.

Upset Alert

Big day in College Basketball a lot of rivalries going down today. Here are some upsets to look out for: Cincinnati at home over #17 Marquette, Georgia Tech at home over Maryland, Missouri at home over #22 Kansas State, Dayton on the road over Rhode Island, Oklahoma State on the road over Texas Tech, LSU on the road over Alabama, Illinois at home over Purdue, South Carolina on the road over #24 Mississippi, Fairleigh Dickinson at home over Quinnipiac, Mississippi State at home over #7 Tennessee, Indiana State at home over #16 Drake. So Saturday will be chock full of upsets in my opinion. Five Top 25 teams falling. In the NBA, the Nets go on the road and beat the Hawks, to win their second straight. The Knicks end their West Coast losing streak by upending the lowly Sonics. Gotta love the new report that the Patriots were filming the Rams final practice before the Super Bowl like six years ago and the NFL burned the tapes. This is getting too funny, come on.

When Will Congress Learn?

I can't take it anymore. Congress must have more important crap to do right? Now there getting to this spygate thing? Its over, its finished, all there is, is a pissed off Senator from Pennsylvania because the Patriots beat his Eagles three years ago and now wants revenge. This dumb, its been settled, it was over, now this moron has to talk about it again. Doesn't Congress have something more important to deal with, like maybe our economy? Damn retards, this is why our country is $3 billion plus in debt. However the Lakers basically stole Pau Gasol today from the Grizzlies for Kwame Brown, who is easily one of the worst number one picks ever, Javaris Crittenton, a rookie who gets no playing time, and two future 1st round picks. Phil Jackson with that triangle offense with Bynum, Kobe, and Gasol look out the Lakers are the team to beat. Another lower deal, the Nets dealing Jason Collins, the worst professional basketball player ever to the Grizzlies for Stromile Swift. Who does the scouting for Memphis? Don't they realize Jason Collins sucks? Santana deal now down to 41 minutes left on the clock. It's gonna get done, I had that same hope when the Red Sox got Matsuzaka, he's gonna sign at 4:59:59. Knicks in Portland tonight, expect yet another loss. Magic Johnson's gone crazy thinking my Knicks are playing into April, I guess he's trying too hard to defend his friend Isiah. Nets going to win tonight in Miami who clearly has worse future than the Knicks. Expect Dwyane Wade in Chicago or New York come 2010.

Saturday in Sports

It's kind of disturbing that the Knicks are only four games out of a playoff spot. Yes, you heard me, four freaking games out of a playoff spot. Some good college basketball games today. Here are my upsets of the day: Notre Dame on the road against Villanova, Illinois-Chicago knocks off #15 Butler on the road, Washington beats Arizona at Arizona, Oklahoma knocks off Baylor, Georgia knocks off Tennessee, and West Virginia over #9 Georgetown. All-Star Weekend for the NHL, but no one really cares especially with Sidney Crosby hurt. Lets go Knicks!

Championship Weekend

Today is one of the biggest days in sports as we are at Championship Weekend in the NFL. The two games today will decide who will play in Super Bowl 42 in Glendale, Arizona. Personally I hate both the Patriots and the Giants, being a die-hard Jets fan, but here is how I think it is going to go down:
Chargers vs. Patriots (with Rivers and Gates)
The weather is going to be a major factor especially when the high is 24 degrees, and the wind gusting up to 10 to 20 mph, and the wind chill around 4. The Patriots are the better team, but are trailing the Chargers 13-10 going into the 4th and final quarter, but...Tom Brady continues his extreme dominance (and annoyance) by dropping 28 on the Chargers in the 4th quarter to San Diego's 3. The Pats advance with a 38-16 win over the Chargers. LT has a great game running for 120 yards, and receiving for 80 more and a score, but the combination of Wes Welker and Randy Moss are too much combining for 197 yards receiving and a score.
Chargers vs. Patriots (without Rivers and Gates)
Talk about your everyday beatdowns, Volek doesn't complete a pass on 28 tries and LT is held for only 60 yards and the Patriots obliterate the Chargers, 45-0. Brady throws for 351 yards and 5 scores. Welker catches 9 balls for 148 and scores twice. If this doesn't show what a difference Gates and Rivers make, then your crazy.
Giants vs. Packers
In a game where the wind chill expected to reach 20 below 0, this could be another Ice Bowl. The only knock against Eli Manning that hasn't been proven wrong is that he can't play in cold weather. He won two games in a row down south in Tampa and Dallas. That knock is proven true and Eli throws for only 140 yards and gets picked 3 times. Brandon Jacobs and Reuben Droughns combine for 122 yards and the only Giant score. The combination of Brett Favre and Ryan Grant prove deadly as Favre hooks up with both his tight ends for two scores as the Pack advance to their first Super Bowl in 10 years, winning 21-7.

My Predictions for Today in Sports

Knicks go for their shocking fourth win in a row tonight in the nations capital. They manhandled the Wizards on Tuesday at the Garden, hopefully the can keep it up tonight, now only 6 games back of a playoff spot (what a joke). I'm a big Knick fan, but the run ends tonight they lose the Wizards, 109-100. The Celtics have lost 3 games recently and play at home tonight against the horrid Sixers, expect a blowout tonight in the Garden, 99-76 Boston. Bobcats knock off the Hornets in New Orleans, 100-96 behind yet another strong performance by Forward Gerald Wallace. Warriors go into Chicago and knock off the Bulls, 120-106, despite the Bulls being in 9th place in the Eastern Conference.

Knicks Continue Their Hotstreak

Wow, the Knicks did it again! Jamal Crawford is a tank, dropping 35 on the cross-state rivals, along with 24 from big man Zach Randolph. If it hasn't been made clear yet, I'll make it clear again. Stephon Marbury's tenure as a Knick is done. He'll end up on IR for the rest of the year, and they should trade him over the summer. He has an expiring contract, so there might be some takers. The Knicks (are shockingly) only 6 games out of a playoff spot with only 12 WINS. Talk about how bad the Eastern Conference is. Knicks don't play again until Friday on the road against Washington. Can they make it four in a row?
