The weekend ahead...


Looking onward to what shapes up to be a fabulous weekend of couch+cheetos+beer time:

High School football finals
Papa John’s New Tuscan Herb Pizza Cardinal Stadium will be intense this weekend.
4A: Watch as Trinity and St. X meet in a more non-taditional affair. St. X stormed the Shamrocks in their regular season showdown, but all that has to be thrown out the window when these two rivals collide. 7:30 Fri.
3A: Lexington Catholic and their non-UK star QB look to bring a title to “the better city” when they square off agaisnt Bowling Green. 11:30 Sat.
2A: Russel and Owensboro Catholic both come in with 13-1 records. Should be a great one. 3:30 Sat.
A: Championship game mainstays Mayfield and Newport Central Catholic look to add another trophy to an already stocked collection. 7:30 Sat.

Kentucky vs. North Carolina
Watch as the Cats try and defend Rupp against the likes of Marvin Will…no, Raymond Fel…no, Sean M…no, Rashad Mc…Oh just watch anyway.
current all-time win count as of today:
Kentucky- 1,909
UNC- 1,863
Noon Sat.

College Football Conference Championships
Don’t look at them for what they are: Unfair, unnecessary, often boring, NCAA cash-cow extravaganzas. Rather, look at them as unfair, unnecessary, often boring, NCAA cash-cow extravaganzas built for our entertainment. And we love the NCAA for that. I mean we really love the NCAA, the BCS, the selection committee, Miles Brand, everything about it (Now, can we please have Morris back).

Georgia vs. LSU–This one ought to be the game of the week. Plus, the SEC is due for a decent championship game. This contest will illustrate what it’s like to have 8 Micah Johnsons on your defense. LSU can secure a trip to the BCS with a win, but must get past an extremely athletic Georgia squad. These teams did not meet in the regular season.
Sat. 6

Texas vs. Colorado–Forget Randolph Morris, this is such a senseless game. Colorado is coming off a drubbing to very mediocre Nebraska, and still gets another shot a Texas team that waxed them 42-17 in the regular season. Why should Texas have to risk their Rose-Bowl bound players to injury in this stinker?
1 Sat.

Florida St. vs. Virginia Tech– Who cares. “Diet Vick” has his moments and it’s oh-so-fun to see “Free Shoes U” kicked when they’re down, but I’d rather watch Josh Carrier highlight film. 8 Sat.

Army vs. Navy– Still quite the spectacle, but this game was much more exciting in the bathtub as a kid. 1:30 Sat.

USC vs. UCLA– USC is -21, looks like a lot, but also looks like a pretty good bet.
don’t care Sat.

Bengals vs. Steelers– For all those Bengals fans, true and trendy, the Steelers look to bounce back after being dismantled by Einstein in pads and the juggernaut of Indianapolis. Carson Palmer is a poor man’s Manning only in IQ, and should be able to torch the secondary with ease. 1 Sun.

Come on now…Do you really think I would?
