Wacky Wednesday

-Providence rode the strength of a huge first half to upset #1 Pittsburgh last night on Senior Night at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Does anyone want to be #1 this year in College Hoops? UNC? Duke? Pitt? UConn? Anyone?

-NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has voluntairly taken a 20% paycut. The NFL has dropped 169 jobs during the economic downturn. Goodell was schedule to make $11m in salary and bonuses this year. I'm sure David Stern, and Bud Selig were thrilled when they heard the news.

-The New York Knicks have finally parted ways with Stephon Marbury. After paying him nearly $21m to do absolutely nothing this year, they have agreed to buyout the remainder of his contract so he will be free to sign with any other team in the NBA. It looks like Marbury will sign with the Celtics.

-Apparently Greg Anderson enjoys spending time behind bars. Barry Bonds' former personal trainer will apparently not testify against Bonds in his upcoming perjury trial which is expected to get underway on Monday. I wonder what kind of prision Anderson enjoys more.

-I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.

-Apparently in the current economic climate Americans are spending a lot of time watching TV, and using the computer. Now if only I could convince people to read this blog.

-Alta is the place to be. Apparently my brother wasn't crazy when he decided to name his daughter after a ski resort. Interesting development.

-I found this article in the vault at Sports Illustrated. It is a fantastic piece talking about how Nike is taking over the sports world. Only it was written in 1993.
