This weekend in Sports

Things I liked:

  • The UConn Women's basketball team has an 80 game win streak - does this mean they're really good or that everyone else is just pretty terrible?
  • Eagles wide receiver, Deshawn Jackson, told the Monday Night Football crew before the first play of the game, "Shh... first play, we're goin big," followed by an Eagles opening record play - an 88-yard touchdown bomb from Michael Vick to Jackson.
  • The Nascar championship race is the closest it has been since the Chase was started in 2006
  • The Lakers ended their 8 game win streak in a loss against the Denver Nuggets 112-118
  • The NY Rangers trounced the Edmonton Oilers 8-2
  • Kyle Busch was penalized for speeding, so next time he entered pit row, he flicked off the NASCAR official. He was fined $25K.

Things I didn't like:
  • Despite not being conditioned to play all four quarters of a football game, Donovan McNabb has been offered more money.
  • Michael Vick played like a video game this weekend. He is now the only player in NFL history with three touchdown passes and two rushing touchdowns in the first half of a game. He is also the first player in NFL history with at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game. I just cannot get behind this guy. Good news for him is he's going to become the QB the NFL wanted Donovan McNabb to be.

Things that surprised me:

I have almost no college football highlights, because lets face it, while Oregon, TCU and Boise State totally deserve to be 3 of the top 4 teams and I'm very happy that they're finally being recognized, it's boring.
