Sunday Sports Wrap - March 30, 2008

Another Sunday and plenty of sports to go around! March Madness is in hyper drive and some brackets are still intact…somewhere…

Texas and Memphis go at it today for the right to play in the Final Four. UCLA is going for the third straight year with the win over Xavier yesterday.

There are a few MLB games going on today. Much more exciting is that Opening Day is tomorrow! I know I’m stoked about it since I’ve got some decent field box seats for the opener at Chavez Ravine.

There’s plenty of action in the world of the Beautiful Game today. In the MLS Dallas plays Chivas USA and is ahead so far 1-0. The Premier League saw Newcastle defeat Tottenham 4-1, Liverpool defeat Everton 1-0, and Chelsea over Middlesbrough 1-0. AC Milan fell to Atalanta today 2-1 in the Serie A. World Cup qualifying rounds are taking place also with British Virgin Islands v. Bahamas and Cayman Islands v. Bermuda.

The Zurich Classic is the news in the PGA today. Stuart Cink caused some hubbub with a questionable shot so far today. Oh, and look, the ubiquitous Peyton and more reserved Eli Manning are in the announcer’s booth being interviewed. Of course, Peyton did all of the talking while Eli sat there and smiling and nodding to his older siblings musings about golf and the NFL.

The International Surfing Association’s World Master’s Surfing Championships are going on now through April 6th in Punta Rocas, Peru. You can catch live webcasts on their site.

Today in sports history:

1990 – Jack Nicklaus made his debut in the “senior’s” golf tournament

1889 – John T. Reid, opens the first golf course in the United States
