Now to a sports update:
The Seahawks won 35-14 on Saturday night over the Redskins. The Redskins were feisty and hung in there until their QB threw two costly interceptions, both of which were returned for Touchdowns. Fortunately, there was no high-stepping by the Hawk DB's. High Stepping, for those of you who don't know what that means, is to dance and shake on the way to the end zone, it is a form of showing up an opponent. The Phil Mushnicks, Rick Morrisseys and other "self-appointed" saints of sport frown on such a practice.
Jacksonville edged Pittsburgh 31-29. They had an eighteen point lead, 28-10 and then gave it away, but Josh Scobee, the Jags kicker, did his best Adam Vinatieri impression and hit a game winning field goal and the Jags get either the Patriots or Colts next week.
The Chicago Black Hawks have lost four in a row, dropping two to the Kings, one to the Coyotes and one on Friday night to the Ducks. Meanwhile, the Sens beat Buffalo on Friday night and came back last night to beat the Lightning in overtime, 4-3. Now the Sens have a ten point lead on the Montreal Canadiens for the Northeast lead.
In College Hoops, the Cougars beat Washington 56-52 to remain unbeaten and the Zags beat the Georgia Bulldogs by 8. Cougs are 13-0 and the Zags are 11-4 entering WCC play. UW is 9-5 so hopefully all three teams will be in the NCAA or NIT this year.
Sorry Illini fans, love your team, loved 2005, but they're 8-7 and make WSU look like the Dukies. Speaking of my least favorite team, BABY!!!! Duke hosts Cornell in an hour and should roll over the Big Red. When will Vitale recover from his vocal chord surgery? I miss him.
