Things That Would Never Happen

I'd heard the 2010 NFL Draft was deep, but I had no idea. Reviewing the Pre-Combine Draft Board, I can't remember a year with similar talent. Jhavid Best at 40? Wow.

I wish the Redskins would trade down, and dump any/all players of value for draft picks. This is the draft to have multiple picks in the first two rounds.

I can't stand New England (for numerous reasons, but, in this instance, for their multitude of picks).

I Stand Corrected

Sport has risen at the Olympics. Great win by USA Mens' Hockey, Bode Miller, and Even Lysacek.

Tina Fey Back on SNL

Tina Fey is hosting SNL in April, which will be the flagship show of a mediocre season. The Top five SNL skits I'd love to see Tina Fey parody (parody of a parody).

5.Hub's Gyro Guys (the most underrated skit of all time) (Schneider, Sandler)
4. Church Lady (Dana Carvey)
3. Gumby (Eddie Murphy)
2. Sprokets (Mike Meyers)
1. Matt Foley (Chris Farley)

I hope they combine her played Sarah Palin with Celebrity Jeopardy, or my new favorite, What's Up with That?.

Vancouver Olympics

My up-to-the-moment memories of the Vancouver Olympics:

- The tragic luge death, and resulting inconclusive findings
- Warm temperatures, causing events to be postponed (skiing) or tracks to be resurfaced (short track speed skating)
- Barricade collapse
- NBC taking a bath ($200M+) on Olympic coverage
- Protests

- Thankfully, Canada's gold in men's moguls, and the touching story of Bilodeau brothers, is a bright spot

I don't want to imagine the ramifications if Canada loses the hockey gold.

WGC - Accenture Match Play

Some musings heading into the first round:

- I wouldn't want to pick the winner of the Player bracket, wow (Westwood, Els, Stenson, Ogilvy).

- I expect Lee Westwood to lose to Chris Wood in R1.

- Great matches:
- Ishikawa (8) v. Sim (9)
- Villegas (6) v. Dustin Johnson (11)

As the snow continues to fall, watching UVA v. Wake I'm reminded of many a Saturday morning rec. basketball game, coming home to watch Pee Wee's Playhouse, and afternoon ACC games.
