Jeff Pearlman with an interesting column in the Wall Street Journal: “Watching sports is mostly boring. Talking and speculating about sports is riveting … offseasons are 8,000 times as engrossing as seasons … Ken Griffey Jr.’s return to Seattle? Riveting! Ken Griffey Jr., overweight and 40, regularly popping up to shortstop in his return to Seattle? Not so great.” Tough to disagree with any of Pearlman’s points. That being said … I spent virtually every Sunday last Fall on the couch watching Red Zone (or Jets games) from 1-7ish. And I’ll attempt to watch every single NCAA tournament game (or parts of each one).
You’ll never guess what we have #1.
Fading star, rising star.
This one depends on your perspective.
Stan Van Gundy has the conch, in case that wasn’t clear.
