various things, good old boy network lives in College sports

First of all, about the BCS: To me it's a sham and a sign of the good old boy network. They (BCS powers) like certain teams like Ohio State, Oklahoma and LSU and dislike the non-traditional powers like Kansas and Missouri and West Virginia. If I was a voter, I would consider voting for Hawaii if they beat Georgia in the Sugar Bowl and Kansas if they beat Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl.

Now that that's out of the way, onto the sports I really care about.

NFL: Seahawks eked out an important win on the road at Philadelphia by beating the Eagles 28-24 at Lincoln Financial Field. Hasslebeck had 2 TD passes and Morris and Alexander each had a TD Run. Alexander's was the 99th of his career (rushing) and 110 overall for his career. The Hawks are 8-4 and 2 games behind Green Bay for the second seed. They won't catch the Packers but it is a possibility. I sound like Harry Teinewitz of ESPN 1000 by saying this. Nice if on January 20th it was the Cowboys and Seahawks in the NFC championship game.

NCAA: Go Zags Go!!! They beat UConn 85-82 in Boston in this Hartford Challenge. The other game was BC and Providence, don't know or care what happened in that game.

NHL: Bad news, the Senators, once 11-1 or so, have lost 6 straight, albeit one or two in a shootout where they get a point. They still lead the Northeast, but have a big road trip this week, with games in Florida, Texas, Carolina and Pittsburgh. It's a long season though and I expect them to get through it or make a trade to shore up weaknesses.

That's all for now, catch you all later.
