Big Weekend

great sports weekend

 

  • We got Manny Pacquiao fighting Ricky Hatton in what is being billed as the fight of the year.  However, it is only on PPV ($49.99).  And people wonder why boxing sucks and nobody watches it.  Name another sport that secludes itself from its viewers like this…  I’m picking Hatton in the 8th by knockout.

 

  • Also, in the NHL, Crosby and Ovechkin are going head to head in the playoffs.  I’m not a hockey fan, but if I happen to come across this game on TV I will probably watch a little bit of it.  I think I’m going to say Ovechkin is my favorite hockey player of all time (other than Brent Fuller) and Crosby is a whiny bitch.  There are other NHL games going on, but really, who gives a shit?  Ovechkin and company will win this series.

 

  • The Kentucky Derby.  The most exciting 2 minutes in sports, and a close second, The Kid having sex on his honeymoon.  You gotta love the Derby.  All eyes on Kentucky.  I am going with the Trifecta of Friesan Fire, PioneeroftheNile, and Chocolate Candy.  Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.  Also, just saw that the favorite, I Want Revenge, has been scratched from the race.

 

  • Major League Baseball is in full swing.  We got a full slate of games on, should be fun.

 

  • NBA playoffs have 2 game 7’s this weekend.  Bulls @ Celtics and Heat @ Hawks.  The Bulls/Celtics series has been sick.  I’m not biggest NBA fan, but I do like watching some of the playoffs, especially when the games are like these.  Also, the Mavs and Nuggets get the second round started on Sunday.  I’m picking the Bulls and Hawks to move onto the second round.  

 

  • Also, the EPL (English Premier League) plays this weekend. Manchester United has already played this morning, and they beat Middlesbrough 2-0.  Man U is atop the leaderboard through 34 games in the EPL.

 

  • Tiger is trying to win a golf tournament at Quail Hollow.  He is one shot behind the leaders heading into Saturday.

 

I’m sure there is other shit going on, but I believe I covered the most important.  I’m sure there is NASCAR this weekend, College Baseball, MLS games, and NFL mini-camps.  So basically there is plenty to watch/track on the Internet this weekend while it rains outside.
