Sunday Sports Wrap - January 25, 2009

Listen: Starting at 3:00pm PST today I will be a guest host on Women’s Football Talk. I am both excited and honored. Listen, call in, make fun of me, or log in to the message board to give me a hard time. You can also just call in and be nice, of course. Either way I would appreciate the listens. This is a weekly live show and when the IWFL season starts again I’ll be giving periodic reports about the Southern California Breakers.

: Two big events wrap up today. The Bob Hope Classic has already been an eventful tournament. Pat Perez broke a record on Friday only to have Steve Stricker break another and pull ahead going in to the final day. The European Tour’s Qatar Masters also ends today.

NCAA Hoops: There is one women’s and a few men’s games to follow today.

Winter X Games: The Games finish up today with events like the SkierX and Snowboard SuperPipe finals. If you missed the events it looks like you can get most of it on iTunes. The link on the EXPN talked about free downloads but when I checked on Saturday there was only one free video, another for $1.99, and a “season pass” for $8.99. You can get highlights on ESPN’s video section and I bet you can see some or all of the games rerun at a later date as well.
