No need to get into the Super Bowl any more than I have all week. We've heard enough, time for the game. Me, I'm saying "geaux Saints". I'm going to call the upset here, and say it is a 30-24 Saints win.
Chelsea will face Arsenal in a huge London derby this morning at 11am on The Score. For Chelsea, they need a bounce back after a surprising 1-1 draw with Hull City, not to mention the John Terry fiasco the last week. Arsenal is in a far more desperate position after getting crushed by Manchester United last weekend, and anything less than a win is the death of their championship aspirations this year. Given their record against the top sides, hard to like Arsenal today.
I can't get the "Who Dat?" song out of my head this week. Here are the Top 10 New Orleans Saints Songs.
Jose Canseco is talking junk and wants a piece of Herschel Walker. I know Strikeforce is attempting to be a serious MMA outfit, but they need to make this happen, so Canseco can be even more exposed as a total joke. I'd love to see Walker dummy him.
Troy Aikman told The Jim Rome Show that Tony Romo is now a legitimate leader in Dallas and has grown leaps and bounds, and the Dallas Cowboys will benefit greatly from it next year. Love me that Troy.
Toronto Raptor Hedo Turkoglu doesn't want to wear a mask to protect his fractured orbital bone when he returns to action today as the Raps host Sacramento because he finds it uncomfortable. Also uncomfortable for Hedo: razors, and braces. In the end, Turkoglu has relented to the team's wishes and will sport the protective gear.
Randy Couture beat Marc Coleman in a battle of old warhorses with a second round stoppage. Seriously though, can we get past Couture as a main eventer? He's not there anymore.
The Euro 2012 draw went this morning and the results can be seen here. This Croatian is very happy with a group that includes Malta, Georgia, Latvia, Israel, and Greece.
Two games, two straight shutouts for new Toronto Maple Leafs goalie J.S. Giguere after last night's 5-0 beating of the Ottawa Senators, the Sens first loss after 11 straight wins.
The Everton/Liverpool game yesterday, a 1-0 win for 'pool, was as chippy a game as you'll see with nasty tackles flying around early and often. Hilites here.
