And then there were four: Two No. 1 seeds, Blake Griffin’s dunking ability and DeSean Jackson’s punt return for a TD to beat the Giants. Final Four voting will be open overnight until 9 am Friday, and then the Finals will be held from Friday-Monday night. Defending champ Brooklyn Decker was eliminated in the Sweet 16, so we’ll definitely have a new victor Tuesday morning.
Griffin, who missed his rookie season due to injury but exploded into one of the league’s biggest forces last year (22.5 ppg, 12.1 rpg), put together perhaps the best season of dunks since Michael Jordan played in the NBA.
Kate Upton needs no introduction.
In the other semifinal, you’re familiar with Bill Simmons. He’s “The Sports Guy,” and has written for ESPN for about a decade and also wrote the Book of Basketball.
DeSean Jackson provided an all-time NFL highlight when he did this to the NY Giants last year. The Giants ended up missing the playoffs. Somehow, Tom Couglin kept his job. I wish anyone other than Joe Buck had the call here.
