The season is winding down. We are entering the final week of the regular season. After that, conference tournaments will start the following weekend. Selection Sunday is March 15th, less than 2 weeks away. Shortly after Selection Sunday, all will be right in the world. People will be printing out brackets and filling them out at their desk. Inevitably, Jan from accounting will win your office pool by picking her favorite mascots and everyone will be in disbelief. It has been an exciting regular season thus far and boy do we still have the best ahead of us.

14 Major League Baseball playoffs began with a bang on Tuesday night as the Oakland Aâs played the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Royals beat the Aâs 9-8 in a 12-inning marathon that featured five lead changes and ended on a walk-off single to left field that barely missed the glove of the Aâs diving third baseman. It wasnât just the best game in the three-year history of the wild card play-in game, it was one of the most exciting postseason games ever.
Before Sept. 25 Thursday Night Football, Phil Simms decided to take a small stand and not say the name âRedskinsâ during the broadcast. Pretty simple really, but it let us know exactly where he stands. A Superbowl champ and respected broadcaster, conspicuously not saying it, and just replacing it with âWashingtonâ if required by the sentence. Truth be told, he slipped and said it in the fourth quarter. But I, for one, appreciate that he tried and that he made his stance public.
The only problem with local rivalries: one team has to lose. The Lone Pine Golden Eagles and Big Pine Warriors got together Friday night to start the Hi-Lo League 8-man football season. Both came into the game, Lone Pineâs Homecoming, wanting that win after a rough pre-league run.
Big Pine got a chance to flex their muscles in the third quarter, despite the loss of their starting QB. The Warriors lived up to the schoolâs tradition of physical, tough action. But, the Eagles got the win, 66-14.
