Sorry about missing last week’s post. I was all screwed up last week. Friday arrived, and I thought it was Wednesday. Oops.
At any rate, will you check out this list?! I think A LOT of people are very excited about the impending baseball season and spring FINALLY arriving. It’s about dang time too. Obviously, some of the biggest names on the list include the 2007 World Series champs, the Colorado Rockies, the perennial favorite Red Sox, 2005 runner up champs, the Houston Astros and the neighborly rivals the Giants vs. the Dodgers. Frankly, I’m exceptionally surprised not to see the Chicago Cubs nor the New York Yankees on this list. I’m sure their time is coming though.
Obviously and without any surprise, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four Tournament holds down the top spot. For those whose brackets and pools predicted these final four, they should receive some kind of elaborate prize. The Final Four is comprised of the Virginia Commonwealth Rams (VCU), Butler Bulldogs, UConn Huskies and the Kentucky Wildcats. Which unlikely team do you think will take home the championship on April 4th?
The Chicago Bulls also are making an appearance on the list. Hometown hero, Derrick Rose, is helping lead his team hopefully another championship, along with assistance from Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer and Coach Tom Thibodeau.
Our firs WWE event shows up on the list with Wrestlemania XXVII (that’s 27 for us regular folk). Some of the matches of note include The Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio, The Miz (from MTV’s Real World!) and John Cena as well as Triple H taking on The Undertaker. WWE has a huge following and is not just for 13-year-old boys anymore.
