Sunday Sports Wrap - March 15, 2009

March Madness
: Yes, it is Selection Sunday and everyone has a case of March Madness. I have invites to be in three different pools so I think some creative strategies are in order.

Tiger Watch: Tiger is off to a slow start for his return being eliminated from the Accenture event early and now far behind the leaders at Doral. Phil Mickelson is atop the leaderboard with no sign of Tiger. Even Camilo Villegas is up near the top. It is likely that everyone should enjoy Tiger's slow start while they can and he'll be back in champion form before mid-year. Or will he?

Spring Training: It's no surprise that attendance is down for Spring Training this year. What a time to go then - there are a lot of games today. These games are great to catch the big names warming up and the young talent trying to get noticed.

World Baseball Classic: If you're in San Diego or Miami today you can catch the World Baseball Classic. Mexico v. Korea is in SoCal and the US play Netherlands in South Florida.

We have a horse track near us and I have gone to watch the races twice. It is a lot of fun to watch the horses racing, but I know they aren't always treated well and that bothers me. I don't know enough about it to say whether most are treated well or not.

Yeah, I just avoid equestrian sports completely.
