The pickings, they be slim today. But that's alright, because the Texans played yesterday. And after the Texans play, I've usually had enough soul crushing heart-breakers for one week. There is a Rockets game, if you're in to that sort of thing. Behind the jump, the return of Carl Landry and other things that could be on sporting television today if you're up to watching them.
Game losing opponent's TD drive with 50 seconds to play and no timeouts
Sacramento Kings @ Houston Rockets -- 7:30 PM, Fox Sports Houston -- Carl Landry returns to town while erstwhile Kings target Aaron Brooks continues to watch Kyle Lowry stake claim to his job.
Orlando Magic @ Denver Nuggets -- 8 PM, NBA TV -- I'm not going to say that the Magic are going to spend this entire trip trying to convince Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with them, but...I don't have a good answer to this sentence.
Game losing pick six
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers -- 6 PM, Versus -- Somewhere deep in my heart, Sidney Crosby will always remind me of Bobby Crosby. Probably because I don't actually follow the NHL. Anyway, my main point is that players named Crosby don't have the longest track record of being successful.
Game losing Hail Mary
College Basketball - North Texas Eagles @ Texas Longhorns -- 7 PM, Fox Sports Southwest -- Rice lost to North Texas, Texas nearly lost to Rice, ergo, the transitive property states that the Longhorns will fall tonight. That thing's a real bitch, is it not?
College Basketball -- Drexel Dragons @ Louisville Cardinals -- 8 PM, ESPN3.com -- One of those games you point to as evidence of Louisville's strong non-conference schedule. No wait, the opposite of that.
Eurocup Basketball -- KK Hemofarm Stada vs. Besiktas Cola Turka -- 11 AM, ESPN3.com -- Your chance to watch the decaying remains of Allen Iverson. A good reminder that things could always be worse?
