“NBA Night Tonight?”

The loss of San Antonio's leader, Tim Duncan (pictured above) could allow the Lakers to catch the Spurs for the 1 seed in the West. Either way, San Antonio will not make a deep run in the playoffs without the rock of their franchise at full strength.

Over the past couple of weeks, it has become very easy to forget about all other sports outside of NCAA Basketball.  This year’s version of March Madness has been absolutely phenomenal, and we are all extremely excited to see what happens in Houston this weekend.  Today though, Major League Baseball has opened up in a big way.  6 games will be played when all is said and done.  Granted the weather is still in the 30s in Cincinnati, where the Reds are currently taking on the Brewers.
