Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?? Everyone's talking about the start of the NFL playoffs, but if your team failed to qualify and you just can't bear to watch, there's plenty more on the docket to keep you busy all weekend.
The hapless (and winless) Spartans of UNC-Greensboro lost by 46 points to Duke last night. With the win, the 880th of his career, Coach K moved into sole possession of second place on the all-time Division I men's basketball wins list.
America was again dealt defeat, as Pasadena and its new Rose Bowl lost the bid for the 2022 World Cup to Qatar. So far the puns are coming fast and furious; already spotted are mentions of Qatarade and Qatar Hero, no doubt Q-Atari is coming soon.
