March Maddens Me

I made eight brackets for ESPN's Tournament Challenge. In NONE of them did I choose Wisconsin to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. I am eating my heart out, holding my head in my hands, and generally raging like a madwoman. Argh!  Okay, rant over. Let's hope that the Florida State Seminoles manage to win against Xavier Musketeers only for the sake of my bracket. I am going to be a part of the Second Chance Tournament game on ESPN once it gets started. More anon.

What is Happening?

Spring training is not going well for my Texas Rangers (2-10). They lost to the LA Dodgers 12-2 yesterday. You have a sad Lady on your hands now. C'mon, boys! Never Give Up! Beat the Athletics today! Play ball!

Madness Descends Soon!

Next week begins March Madness, the time of year when college basketball teams battle for supremacy. Will Villanova repeat? They broke my heart last year with the buzzer beater shot that crushed my UNC Tar Heels. Brackets get firmed up this weekend, and we'll see how things play out. Meanwhile, I think I'll enjoy championship week.

One NFL note (or two!) to report. Tony Romo will be released by the Dallas Cowboys with the caveat that he not go to an NFC East rival. I would prefer that Tony retire with his health intact. Wherever he lands must have a solid O-line to protect his increasingly fragile bones. I know he has the heart to compete; however, his body cannot guarantee the check his competitiveness is writing. Brandon Marshall signed with the NY Giants. Where will Adrian Peterson land?

Super Bowl LI

I watched the last part of Undisputed on Fox after church this morning. Shannon Sharpe is always entertaining to watch and listen to when I have the opportunity. I'd love to see him with Stephen A. Smith talking together once. It would be epic! I digress. Who to pick for the winner of the Super Bowl? I am not a Tom Brady fan, and I am not a Falcons fan, per se, but just for today, I say,

NFL Conference Championship Day!

MLB

Before we jump into the fun of the NFL Championship, a more somber tone is required.  Yordano Ventura, RHP for the Kansas City Royals, died today in a car crash in the Dominican Republic. What a tragic loss with a life cut so short! My prayers go out to his family. In an unrelated incident, former MLB player Andy Marte, also a Dominican Republic native, died in a car accident early Sunday morning. LORD, please wrap Your arms of comfort around these grieving families searching for answers and feeling a deep emptiness in their hearts.


NFL Conference Championships

NFC
Packers at Falcons - Stephen A. Smith's BAAAAAD man is hot right now. Georgia Dome will be rocking the red tonight.

AFC
Steelers at Patriots - I am glad the jerk who pulled the fire alarm at the Steelers' players hotel was apprehended. That is not the way to encourage your team to win the game. Classless clown.

Aaron Rodgers and the Killer Bees

NFL Divisional Playoffs

I wanted to predict both games' results correctly yesterday, but those rascally Green Bay Packers led by future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers ruined my plans. I feel nothing but pride for my Dallas Cowboys with our new QB Dak Prescott and incredible running back Ezekiel Elliott. Next year, 'Boys, next year. We will finish the fight. I was right about Pittsburgh winning last night. Those Killer Bees were just too much to handle: Big Ben, Antonio Brown, LeVeon Bell, and Chris Boswell. The kicker. Made all of the points last night. Touch down fail. ESPN writer Jeremy Fowler stated that "the Steelers were practically allergic to scoring touchdowns" in Sunday's game. Sigh. This brings me to my next point.

First Take on ESPN

I really do not want to listen to Stephen A. Smith's joy and happiness about Aaron Rodgers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Steelers, or anything else for that matter; however, I will take my medicine. Yergh.

Divisional Playoffs

I was not too busted up to see the Seahawks sent home packing by the Atlanta Falcons when I checked the final score of the game. I expected the Patriots to win last night's game, too. The Houston Texans must solve the QB riddle of Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage or the next great thing. I doubt they would get anywhere near Clemon's Deshaun Watson who is heading into the draft in a few months. Just forget about it!

Sunday's Picks

Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys - feed Zeke!
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs
