ZONER’S MONDAY MORSELS
Are you paying attention to the NBA? Lots of talk about LeBron and the Cavs, the World Champion Celtics, even the resurgence of Dwyane Wade. But have you seen what the Magic have done lately? They’re 33-8, have won 7 in a row and 9 of their last 10. More impressive is who they beat and where they did it. Friday night they beat the Lakers in L.A. Saturday–on a back-to-back mind you–they throttled the Nuggets in Denver 106-88. They had 4 straight road wins with three of them against division leaders. They also beat the Spurs in Texas and poured in 139 against the Kings in Cali.
To the morsels…
Farewell, Felix Pie. We hardly knew ye. While I think the Cubs made a solid deal in trading a player that was out of options, it’s always disappointing to see your club’s top prospects not pan out. Get those Jake Peavy rumors going!
Remember Kevin Pittsnogle?
Ned Flanders would be proud. It’s a list of The World’s Top 10 Left-handed Athletes.
I can’t promise but I think this is my last mention of the Baseball Hall of Fame for about 10-11 months. Dugout Central has 28 Ballots Highlight Ridiculousness of HOF Voters.
Lions fans have another reason for lamentations: The Arizona Cardinals are in the Super Bowl. The Wayne Fontes Experience explains it all.
And finally, Empty the Bench looks at the slumping Detroit Pistons, or as I like to call it: How’s that A.I. for Mr. Big Shot trade looking now?
