Sports…February would be even worse without them. The weather is bad and everyone has the post New Year blues. With the Ravens being crowned World Champs last night, the city of San Francisco was denied the jubilation felt in Boston in 2004, when both the Patriots and Red Sox shared the moniker that the Ravens have now. Now football is over and baseball, unfortunately yet to start, it is time to focus our attention on College Basketball. With my Kentucky Wildcats finally seeming to put together a couple of good games, I couldn’t be more excited for the madness that is March to begin. I don’t know if anyone around here was interested in the Michigan – Indiana game on Saturday night, but it was incredible to watch. Victor Oladipo was magnificent and the almost ally-oop that he tried would have been the dunk of the year if he could have converted it. If I had to pick two teams right now that would be playing for the national championship, I would have to pick Indiana and Florida. Those are the two best teams right now, but Michigan, Kansas, Miami(FL) and Duke can also make a strong case. There are some great games coming up and for the most part they are on ESPN so keep an eye on your local listings. The one that I am most looking forward is the Kentucky–Florida game on the 12th in Gainesville. If UK can manage to pull off a win then they will have punched their ticket to the dance, which would be fantastic. That’s what I’m looking forward to leading up to Opening Day here at the ballpark which is April 4th. Until the 4th I’ll have college basketball and my personal favorite time of the year: “Pitchers and Catchers report to Spring Traning” to look forward to.
Until next time,
