So much going on! So much to talk about today! My quick recap of the last few days in sports news and….stuff. The key events: The Pro Bowl, DWTS, The Grammys, and some other sporting news!

1. The NFC won the Pro Bowl 30-21

871

  • The “series” is now NFC 20 AFC 19 since 1971
  • The NFC has won 3 out of the last 4 Pro Bowls
  • Larry Fitzgerald was name MVP for his outstanding plays and 2 TDs (and is also my SportsMan of Style)

2. Pat Summit had her 1,000th win

APTOPIX Georgia Tennessee Basketball

This was last week’s news but was one of the pieces I was writing when I was invited to see He’s Just Not That Into You so…..sorry Pat!

Who is she and why do we care?

Georgia Tennessee Basketball

She is the head coach for the Tennessee women’s basketball team and has been since 1974. She is one of the most recognizable female coaches in the world.

And 1,000 wins is really impressive!  She is the first Division I coach—male or female—to have 1,000 wins. NBA coach Phil Jackson just reached his 1,000 win about two months ago and he has been the coach of the LA Lakers and the Chicago Bulls during their huge championship years with the elite players. It’s rare.

3. A-Rod = A-Fraud

arod

Oh so many things to say. So many jokes. Except I love him and his tushy and I even have a lot of his rookie cards. So this gets :05 of my time right now: Alex Rodriguez was caught doing steroids. Confidential tests from 2003 were leaked and there is big bruh-ha-ha over the shock and the scandal.

4. NBA Sunday Showdown Recap

nba_g_kobe_lebron1_576

Big battles in the NBA yesterday. The best in the West meeting the best in the East! Like I said yesterday, I don’t really recap when my teams lose, something important always happens to come up. I need a haircut. Sorry!

  • The Lakers give the Cavaliers their first home loss despite the Cavs jumping out to a 23-0 lead to start the game
  • The Lakers finished their long road trip 6-0. Final score: 101-91
  • And they basically did it without Kobe because he was vomiting and all shakey from the flu. Ew.

Part II:

spurs-celtics

  • The Celtics lose their second in a row at home—which they have not done since LY—in their second down-to-the-wire game this week.
  • The Spurs scored 11 straight points in the final 45 seconds to go from being down one, to winning by six.
  • The last :45 seconds lasted almost 20 minutes…..

And other games happened too.

5. Gearing up for March Madness, NCAA Style

It’s right around the corner! Time to start paying attention to NCAA basketball again. Things are heating up and teams are making final runs for their invitations to the ball! Er, dance. Whatever. There is a lot of shuffling going on–#1 seems to change every week. I can’t really keep up. I say, start looking it up now! There are A LOT of teams! Go get yours!

Florida St Clemson Basketball

Right now, I’m all about the Florida State Seminoles. They totally rocked out against Big Name UNC this weekend. They didn’t win but they put in a huge fight. Really should have gone to the game. Only 4 hours from my house. I know because I drove it roundtrip in one day to see Chris Daughtry play. Twice.

Recommended Reading: Weekly Watch by Andy Katz. Creates his own team every week with his best players and picks the team of the week. This week, oh yeah, FSU baby!

6. The Real March Madness! DWTS is Finally Revealed!

dwts_logo2

Apparently ABC had an all day name-drop event. That just freaks me out. I’m pretty die hard about the show but even I don’t care that much. Show begins March 9th!

Anyway, here are your hotties, notties and has-beens!

Females:

  • Denise Richards: Needs no intro, she is the Brooke Burke of this season, aka really hot!
  • Lil Kim: I will watch just for this alone because she is vulgar and known to wear pasties on her boobs at regular events, who knows what will happen with these costumes!
  • Belinda Carlisle: Do you think she will sing Heaven is a Place on Earth???
  • Jewel: Oooh! Yay! She can sing lots!
  • Shawn Johnson: Gymnasist
  • Nancy O’Dell: Access Hollywood lady. Also been in lots of movies and tv shows but not as the star or anything. B-lister.

Males:

  • Steve-O : aka Jackass. No, really
  • Chuck Wicks: Don’t care what he does, he is HOT. Fine. He’s a country singer. It does not take away from his hotness.
  • Gilles Marini: OH. MY. GOD. It’s Samantha’s naked neighbor from S&TC movie! WOW!
  • Steve Wozniak: Co-founder of Apple. The big teddy bear of the competition
  • David Alan Grier:
  • Ty Murray: Yeeeee Haw! Rodeo Athelete AND….Jewel’s hubby! How cool is that@
  • Lawrence Taylor: LT! The football guest in this seasons DWTS. He is pretty much regarded as the best defensive player ever in the NFL.

I’ll def be doing a post about all of this ASAP but the key news is that Julianne Hough IS returning and…..she is dancing with the hottie Chuck Wicks! Yay!

7. The Grammys

grammy20pic

Um. Chris Daughtry didn’t have a new album to win with so I don’t care! Hmm, somehow I don’t think that’s the answer people were looking for.

Okay so here is a very quick lil rundown (oooooh that should be my rapper name! Lil Rundown! I don’t think Lil Miss Pink Bubble World Princess was booking me any gigs…)

  • Album of the Year: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss; Raising Sand. (Yeah, I know, I didn’t know it either. It’s Led Zepplin dude)
  • Best Pop Vocal: John Mayer,” Say.” I LOVE this song! And Kristi & Mark did a great rumba to it last year on DWTS
  • Song of the Year: Coldplay, “Viva La Vida.” This means they retire it right? Because it definitely means more Overplayed song of 2008.
  • Best R&B Album: Jennifer Hudson
  • Best R&B Song and Best R&B Vocal Performance: Ne-Yo; “Miss Independent.” (There is just something about…how this song makes you dance in your chair)
  • Best New Artist: Adele (no idea…)
  • Best Rap Sung/Collaboration: Estelle, feat Kanye West “american boy.”  I just think its so funny to see this is as a category now! The evolution of music!
  • Best Female Country: Carrie Underwood
  • Best Country Album: George Straitt
  • Best Male Country: Brad Paisley

And I’m officially bored of this game. For the total list of winners, head to E! Online Grammy Winners

And……
