Tebow’s miraculous comeback, Blues Hockey, NBA trades, and a phenomenal game in Dallas on Sunday Night. It’s as good as Busch!
Tim Tebow is absolutely incredible. I enjoy watching him play. His enthusiasm for the game is inspiring and most importantly, he wins. He should thank Bears RB Marion Barber and his kicker Matt Praterfor blasting a game-tying 59-yard field goal. Who’s betting against this guy?
The St. Louis Blues are legit. St. Louis has won 3 games in a row and rank 5th in the log jammed Western Conference with 37 points. St. Louis has only given up 32 even-strength goals (1st in NHL). The Blues have given up 2 goals or less 14 times since Ken Hitchcock took over (including 3 shootout losses). They are averaging 26.2 shots against per game (1st in NHL). St. Louis is +19 as a team (3rd in NHL). St. Louis’ emphasis on defense allows little space for opposing teams to control the game.
I’d be pissed off too if I were Kobe Bryant. Thursday he thinks Chris Paul is the new Lakers point guard, only to be vetoed down by NBA owners. Sunday, his team trades the 2011 Sixth Man of the Year Lamar Odom. What? First of all, the NBA blocking the trade makes zero sense–but to trade Odom for a draft pick? The Lakers need Dwight Howard.
Sunday Night Football dominates prime time NFL coverage. What an incredible game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. The Giants were down by 12 points with less than six minutes left in the game but mounted touchdown drives of 80 and 58 yards to take back the lead with 46 seconds left. A lot of credit goes to Jason Pierre-Paul, whose blocked field goal sealed a victory. Pierre-Paul has become a reluctant beast on the defensive line. I am sure ESPN can top this game on Monday Night as the (2-10) St. Louis Rams travel to play the (5-7) Seattle Seahawks.
HBO’S 24/7 series: Road to the NHL Winter Classic returns Wednesday. An all-access pass between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers. HBO did a tremendous job with the series last year and I am looking forward to another brilliant work of production.
