Seattle has officially made it to the top of the sports world's "pay me no mind" list. After two inexcusable losses to end the season the Washington Huskies didn't make the big dance. I guess all those awards and accolades meant absolutely nothing to the selection committee. National W.H.A.T.S. day (Washington Huskies Are The Sh*t day) is suspended until further notice. In other news Peyton Manning told billionaire Paul Allen his money was no good and he wouldn't even consider coming to the 206. I think he's making a big mistake, but what do I know. I'm just a rain worshiper from South Alaska trying to stay relevant. I hope Peyton goes to the Arizona Cardinals so he'll stay one Super Bowl win behind his brother Eli for the rest of his career. Serves him right for thinking he's too good for the town. Here are some observations over the weekend.
Ricky Rubio's torn ACL was a major blow to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the NBA as a whole. We're all praying for a speedy recovery and a return to form before the injury.
Once again the Big East is getting too much credit in the NCAA tournament. The conference got exposed for their mediocrity last year, but the lesson hasn't been learned. This year will be no different and the Big East teams will fall in rapid succession.
Tiger Woods had to pull out of the WGC with stiffness in his Achilles. Speaking from experience (I've ruptured my left and right Achilles tendons) this injury is nothing to play around with. Take it easy before something tragic happens.
Although the 206 had a rough weekend Peyton Siva still represented with a Big East title and tournament MVP honors. It's good to see the little Quaker doing it big on the national scene.
