Wild World of Wednesday – March 5, 2008

The first Wednesday in March and already a fun bunch of sports news even though the NCAA madness hasn’t even begun!

Fresh off of their Carling Cup win, the Tottenham Hotspur have caused quite a ruckus for playing badly and partying a bit much. Manchester United defeated Lyon 1-0 in their 10th straight home win. Cristiano Ronaldo’s game-winning goal was his 30th of the season. Arsenal still remain atop the Premier League in points although many think Man U will easily pass them since they're only one behind as of today.

NFL fans can relax, Randy Moss resigned with the New England Patriots in spite of rumors that he could end up with Dante Culpepper in Tampa Bay or with Brett Favre in Green Bay (although Culpepper has not gone to the Bucs yet). Speaking of Favre, the entire city of Green Bay (and perhaps the whole state of Wisconsin) is in mourning now that the 17-year veteran has announced his retirement. Interestingly enough, it wasn’t too long ago they were all very upset with his performances and whispered he should be traded away. Now that he is really gone, the mayor of the city nearly broke down in tears when interviewed on ESPN radio.

The Los Angeles Lakers are still red-hot in the NBA. Kobe Bryant scored 52 points in an overtime win against the Dallas Mavericks.

Kelly Slater won the Quiksilver Pro title in Australia over the weekend, beating out local favorite Mick Fanning. Not bad for a guy that's pushing 40! I've heard that age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill, although Slater is as skilled as any newbie half his age if not more!
