Rainy day = Zero guilt about sitting in front of the TV from noon to midnight watching college football and Game 3 of the World Series.
CFB Today: West Virginia at Rutgers in a nooner, Cocktail Party at 3:30, Ohio State at Penn State in the night game, with an eye on unbeatens Arizona State and Kansas, as well as that huge USC at Oregon game. That covers most of the remaining BCS contenders playing today.
W.S. Game 3: Papi will start at first base, with Youkilis on the bench. It's a tough choice, either way. I suspect this is the right way to go, with Youk available off the bench to pinch hit and be a defensive replacement at 1B in the later innings.
Chargers to host game vs. Texans in San Diego: Good. The region could use the distraction.
Genarlow Wilson freed: Justice delayed, but at least it was justice eventually.
NBA Preseason finales: Kevin Garnett goes triple-double on the Cavs (21-13-10), in a nicely symbolic victory by the Celtics, foreshadowing his 07-08 MVP season and the Celtics' inevitable dethroning of Cleveland as the Eastern Conference champs. (Oops: I just gave away the two big headlines of the remainder of my NBA preview on Monday and Tuesday. A special bonus for readers who bother to check the blog on weekends.)
Injuries: Mike Bibby out up to two months with a thumb injury, a hazard of playing stars during the preseason.
