Today let us have a moment of silence for those poor fantasy football teams buried by Michael Vick and the Redskins defense. I, thankfully, was not among them. That's what happens when you only play in four leagues, one of which is based on who can create the losingest roster possible. On the other hand, I did start Hines Ward in two leagues. Way to get concussed before all the scoring starts, Hines.â†µ
Without further adieu, today's schedule:â†µ
The best fantasy score in modern history
Chicago Bulls @ Houston Rockets - 7:30 PM, Fox Sports Houston - The Rockets go for three in a row against a Bulls team that may be short on Kyle Korver. And I saved all my good Ashton Kutcher jokes for this game! Damnit.
Portland Trail Blazers @ Memphis Grizzlies - 7 PM, NBA TV - I wonder how many Grizzlies Lewis & Clark encountered. And how many of them were from Memphis.
College Basketball: Butler @ Louisville - 7 PM, ESPN - Rick Pitino! Not Gordon Hayward! A classic matchup of heavily recruited v. white kids.
Virginia Tech days where you could do nothing wrong
College Basketball: Virginia Tech @ Kansas State -- 3 PM, ESPN - Frank Martin will glare and yell at you if you don't watch this game, or if you think about turning the TV off after you've started watching it. Prepare an escape route, and don't look directly at Frank Martin.
Liga Dominicana - Aguilas Cibaenas vs. Toros del Este -- 5:30 PM, ESPN3 -- Lots of former and current Astros on these rosters: Wandy Rodriguez, Jonathan Vilar, Miguel Tejada, Willy Taveras, and Fernando Abad. Raul Valdez gets the start for the Toros.
College Basketball: Robert Morris @ Kent State -- 7 AM, ESPN - Antonio Gates isn't walking through that door. Because he isn't able to.
