The clock finally struck midnight on “Tebow Time,” or at least for the time being, and the globe is still spinning. “Lob City” staked their claim to Los Angeles. And the 49ers won against an outstanding Saints team in a game that will go down as one of the all-time greats. The past week, or even the past day for that matter, was classic. This week should be pretty fun in its own right though. Here are the events to keep an eye on.
5. Pitchers and catchers start reporting in 33 days (February 18th for a lot of teams). MLB baseball is just around the corner. And the Yankees finally broke their silence on Friday in a big way. Who else is already very excited for the 2012 baseball season? Keep an eye this week on what happens with marquee available players such as Prince Fielder, Rick Ankiel, and many more. Will your favorite team pick up the piece they need to make a deep run in October?

As you’ve probably heard, the 2011 NBA draft is shaping up to be one of the weakest in years.
Rumor has it that one of the possible taglines the NBA league office considered to promote the event was: NBA draft 2011…where underwhelming talent happens.
In fact, if we likened all the hopeful hoopers waiting to hear their name called at the Prudential Center in friendly Newark, N.J. — Madison Square Garden is unavailable to serve as the venue this year because of scheduled renovations — to popsicles, then all the NBA teams have a disappointing box full of grape-flavored popsicles to select from (maybe there’s an orange or raspberry hidden somewhere in the box).
Just as any sane person should consciously avoid grape popsicles (I don’t care how hot it gets, I won’t settle for grape), if I’m an NBA GM, I’m avoiding taking these prospects: Continue reading
