Undefeated

I have a couple of questions for thought.
1. Can anyone living beat Ronda Rousey in a UFC match? She took 30 seconds total in her last two fights to annihilate opponents.
2. Will anyone defeat Kentucky before tournament play begins? They soundly defeated Arkansas last night 84-67.
3.  Who even dreamed that BYU would end Gonzaga's home-win streak of forty-one?

Let me know what the answers are when you get a chance.  Lady Grid out.

National Signing Day

Whoop! Kyler Murray signed with Texas A&M University today! This was nice since his father Kevin previously played QB under the coaching of Jackie Sherrill.  Good luck, Kyler, and welcome to Aggieland.

A Couple Of Hoops' Scores:

  1. The Spurs increased the woes of the Orlando Magic.  I bet they miss Superman now.
  2. Speaking of Superman, the Rockets beat the Bulls tonight and are now 17-7 at home.
  3. The OKC Thunder are above .500 after a win in the Crescent City over the Pelicans. Good, work, Westbrook.
  4. At press time, the Mavericks and Golden State Warriors were at the half with the Mavericks ahead by four.  Go, Mavs!

On a last note, a Yellow Flag of Shame to Dallas RB Joseph Randle for an arrest due to marijuana possession. Ugh!

Game Over

What a finish to the Super Bowl!

  1. A miracle catch by Jermaine Kearse for the Seahawks. At that point, I knew they'd won the game.
  2. A questionable play call that will be mulled over the next day or so until it's on to a new subject.
  3. A brawl and ejection in the last eighteen seconds of the game. 
  4. An unbelievable interception by Malcolm Butler in the "ta-da" nick of time.
  5. Gronk looks like the student I'd have on the front row to keep an eye on him; there's a sparkle in his eye that prompts such a feeling.
  6. I was nearly perfect in my bracket except for the Broncos-Colts game a few weeks back.  Woo-hoo! I'm still not headed to Vegas, baby!

Hoop Time

  1. UNC lost to Virginia? Yergh!
  2. Hawks winning streak dried up at nineteen. Not bad, grasshopper.
  3. The Mavericks outlasted the T-Wolves.
  4. The OKC Thunder now have a .500 record.
I am wishing Manziel well in his quest for some true stability in his life. I want him to be successful for himself after seeing others struggle off-field. Asking for help and following through is always a good thing. Lady Grid out.

Crystal Ball Time

The kickoff is less than 90 minutes away, and the meatballs are cooking nicely.  We've watched about all of the pregame shows we can handle.  Let's play football!

The New England Patriots will win and dethrone the reigning champion Seattle Seahawks. Tom Brady or Rob Gronkowski will be the MVP, and someone had better take me and my family to Disney World.  Ha ha ha!

Patriots - 35
Seahawks - 27

A Little Roundball Chit-Chat

It looks like Kyrie Irving had a banner night against the Trailblazers.  Congrats on the 55 points. He was the man on fire last night.

Notre Dame beat Duke just days after Coach K notched his 1,000th win.  I know the Blue Devils won't let this keep them down.

Unranked Georgia Tech took down Miami while Purdue showed up Indiana. Not bad, not bad at all.

In women's hoops, the always formidable UCONN annihilated poor ECU.  Sorry, Lady Pirates!

Rest in Peace, Mr. Cub

Rest in peace, Mr. Cub! We lost Ernie Banks today, and any baseball fan worth his salt will mourn the passing of one of the best short stops ever. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1977; it was well-deserved.

More "---"Gate?



They call it "DeflateGate." This is a few years after "SpyGate." I just don’t know what to say about the deflated footballs from Sunday’s AFC Championship game except to throw a Yellow Flag of Shame!  In fact, it’s a blanket-sized Yellow Flag of Shame.  Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

In more positive gridiron news, former Seattle, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Dallas QB Jon Kitna is going to coach football at Waxahachie High School. Go, Indians!
