1) College Basketball Upsets - There were several upsets (as usual) this week in the world of college hoops, here's a brief overview. UVA scored the last 15 points to edge Clemson by 1 at Littlejohn. Clemson 0-4 FG, 0-3 FT, 2 TOs in last 5:00, UVA 3-4 3FG, 3-4 2FG, 2 ORB, 0 possesions w/o points. Stanford shocked visiting UCLA with a strong outing from John's new favorite set of non-female twins the Lopez Brothers. Also, Baylor gave Texas a scare, OU fell flat on its face as usual (336th Cons). and Providence beat UConn to put their tournament hopes in even more jeopardy (Big East Tournament that is).
2) On Top of Their Game(s) - Federer and Woods both won this weekend, 10th Grand Slam and 7th consecutive win respectively, each writing yet another chapter in their all out dominance of an individual sport. Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm copping the worldwide leader's style. But it is a solid comparison, both are in their primes and looking like they could wear the "best ever" crown.
And-1) NFL Update - Just relaying a couple of stories. The NFL fined Reggie Bush ($5,000) for taunting the Bears in the NFC Champ Game. The Cowboys look to be leaning towards hiring Norv Turner (WTF, are you KIDDING ME, can you say MISTAKE!?!?!). Oh, yeah, and there is this whole Super Bowl thing or something, Peyton Manning, blah blah blah. And finally, my man at the Rock Hill Herald gets on the ball and writes about Jeff Davidson.
Warriors Too Much, Bobcats Too Little - looks like that new chemistry is working in GS, well, at least against the league's worst.
UNC 92, Arizona 64 - in case you were under a rock this weekend, Brandan Wright and Marcus Ginyard took the weekend off, Marcus Williams got hurt, and the Heels Team A v 2.0 walloped the Wildcats. Several good articles: Observer, Andy Katz. John and I disagree, but with UCLA's loss I feel that we will slip up to #2 in at least one poll.

Lady Heels 84, Lady Terps 71 - up big early, the Lady Heels made a case for #1 in the nation by beating Maryland at home, building up to the coming Duke game 2/8 (both are still undefeated and have played nearly identical schedules, Tenn, UConn, Maryland, half of the ACC)
Bobcats @ Nuggets
From the comedy section, Shaq is at it again, putting his Miami Dade reserve policemen status to work. Maybe he should show up on an episode of CSI: Miami.
