Shifting Gears

Since the F'n Eagles saved us a couple weeks of the usual false January hope, it is time to shift into basketball/hockey mode. It is tough for me to get into either of the pro sports until the playoffs, due to the length (lack of purpose) of the regular season. The Flyers a making a strong run back into the Eastern Conference race while the Sixers are stumbling terribly at 11-25. At 11-25 the 76ers are within 5 games of a playoff spot - that is what I mean by lack of purpose.

At least we have College Basketball. It looks like 2 teams will be representing the city, come tourney time. Temple is coming of a huge OT win at Rhode Island, who was 12-1 and ranked in the top 10 RPI, going in. Temple plays at the Palestra, Wednesday night, against Penn. #4 Villanova is a 2.5 point 'dog at (unranked) Louisville tonight on ESPN. Louisville will be ripping off PSU's white out, while Rick Pitino is expected to don his white suit for the game. Both Louisville and Villanova are 3-0 in the Big East.

Beers tonight.. Go Nova!
