Super Bowl Sunday

Thank you for watching “This Week in Football” and “Hot Stove.” Both shows have wrapped for the season and all of us appreciate your loyal viewing.

saints286.jpgI picked the Saints today because they’re a tremendous story with a bunch of really good football players. But a great game, no matter the winner, is atop my wish list.

I’ll be taking a break from the blog, and mostly everything else, until sometime next month. By then, hopefully No. 4 will have announced his return for 2010. That’s it for now.

Enjoy the Super Bowl!

Tired of Tiger? How about some Hot Stove?

I can’t stand the Tiger Woods stuff anymore. Really, I can’t. It was a strange, bizarre accident/incident nearly a week ago and the initial reports — that his injuries were “serious” — were alarming.

And then a few details emerged and you figured there had to be more to this story. (Who would have guessed how much more?) And I think everyone suspected the kind of stuff Tiger and his wife were, uh, discussing on Thanksgiving night.

And now it has become a media obsession that will not die. Talk show hosts who swear they aren’t interested in gossip won’t stop dissecting it. Tabloids have hit the lottery. And it is such a tired topic. Enough already.

So, if you need a diversion, we have “Hot Stove” tonight on YES — 6:30 and 10 p.m. — which includes an interview with Derek Jeter, just after he was presented as SI‘s Sportsman of the Year on Tuesday night.

And there’s always “This Week in Football,” for which I must make my picks. For better or worse. Usually worse, considering last week’s 1-2 effort. (Thank you, Saints.)

I’ll take the Jets over the Bills and look forward — as everyone does — to Revis vs. Owens. If Rogers Centre is indeed sold out, it should be a sight to see. The Blue Jays never see it full, that’s for sure.

I can’t pick the Giants again until they show something that resembles quality football. So I’ll go with the Cowboys in a game the G-men absolutely have to have.

And my third pick is Vikings over Cardinals in what should be a fun game to watch Sunday night. The MVP debate is going to heat up soon: Who’s it going to be? Peyton, Favre or Brees?
