You'd have to say, in the lull that is the time between the Super Bowl and March Madness, this weekend ranks pretty damn high on the sportsability ranking.
Tennessee at Memphis - A good girl friend of mine that lives in LA sent me a text halfway though this game that said, "I think I'm going to need a nap after watching this game, it's that intense." Yep, you read that right, a girl from Los Angeles said that - you know it was a pretty intense game when that happens.
Tiger Woods won - 8 & 7. That is about all you need to know about a week dominated by a golfer that needed to practically birdie out in his first round match to survive J.B. Holmes. Fun stuff to watch, even if you hate golf.
Arizona at Washington State - Sure, you guys might not care, but this was a must win for the Wildcats, who needed something positive to happen if they wanted to make the tournament. Maybe the best thing to come from this win - Chase Budinger decided he was going to be good again.
Cavs new Clique - I'm not at all a Cavalier fan, but I do like watching Lebron James play well without complaining. The new crew all contributed last night as the Cavs beat the
Mavs over Timberwolves - Again, it isn't beating the Lakers, but Jason Kidd did notch 17 assists for the Mavs, a season high, in their win over Minnesota. I'm probably not the only person to say this, but Kidd is a slightly better passer than shooter. Slightly.
Along with all the fun this weekend, Texas plays Kansas State tonight. I'm wondering if Michael Beasley will have any points or rebounds.
