Aussie Open Update –1-21

Aussie Open Update:

  • The road to the finals for Venus is now paved with Pavlyuchenkova….
  • Definitely the year of the underdog in the Aussie Open — Mischa Zverev does the unthinkable and overcomes defensive specialist and world No. 1 Andy Murray. Incredible display of serve and volleying. Zverev may well be the best volleyer in the game today, and was simply relentless. Ironically, the other big surprise in the men’s draw is the continued success of Daniel Evans of Great Britain, who is giving Jo Willy Tsonga all he can handle in the 4th round. And Roger Federer, now a 17 seed, is sitting pretty for another Grand Slam Title… amazing.

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 1-21

NFL Update:

  • Sorry Jimbo — but Pagano’s gotta go… you’ll have to learn this the hard way, as your team falls further and further behind the Texans.
  • Let’s hope Tomlin has his team believing it can win this game, because it certainly can. Pittsburgh has all the weapons it needs on offense, and must simply have the mind set that it must get the full reward of TDs, not field goals, when inside the red zone. Hopefully, Pittsburgh will not shy away from going for it (more than once) on 4th down; field goals won’t do the job, as they’ll likely need at least 32-35 points to win this one (unless bad weather dictates otherwise). Can they stop Brady? Of course not completely, but if they can limit the damage by putting him on the ground a few times and punishing the short stuff over the middle, this might be enough. Steelers will grab the early lead, and hang on for a 34-30 victory. #Steelers #Patriots
  • Atlanta seems to have too much going for it in this one, including a healthier set of receivers and running backs, and a QB that is having the season of his life. However, GB’s defense has picked up a bit of the slack lately, and how can you bet against Rodgers. Mason Crosby will again provide the margin of victory in a very close and entertaining game. #Packers #Falcons

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 1-21

NBA Update:

  • Rockets use jammin Sam Dekker to slam the door on the Grizzlies at the Grindhouse. #Rockets #Grizzlies
  • Another semi-serious injury (and extended absence) for Chris is casting a serious pall over what seemed to be a real sunny season for Los Clippers….and the latest beneficiaries are the Nuggets. #Clippers #Nuggets
  • Unpredictable Pistons wake up on the right side of the bed, and work their way past Washington. #Wizards #Pistons
  • Yes, LeBron put on another good show, scoring 29, including a big three to send this one into OT, but the key stat in this game was his 7 big turnovers. When he handles the ball too much and is stuck playing quarterback, bad things happen. You just can’t give the ball away to the Spurs at critical junctures and expect to win. #Cavaliers #Spurs
  • Wildly entertaining game in Boston, as Blazers finally show up in full force on the long road back to .500. #TrailBlazers #Celtics

NBA Update:

  • Pelicans drowned by about 30 as Brooklyn’s Brook overflows with points. #Nets #Pelicans
  • Bulls are dead meat in Atlanta, when Wade and Rondo go a combined 3-15, and it’s not clear what Chicago can sprinkle on this stale lineup to give it a more tasty disposition. #Bulls #Hawks
  • Winning’s becoming a bit of a habit for Covington and Co. #76ers #Trailblazers
  • Time for Kings to go to the pawn shop and find some new pieces for their backcourt … the current assortment of parts just isn’t working. #Kings #Grizzlies
  • GSW and Curry make clear why Houston and Harden don’t even belong in the same conversation with them. #Warriors #Rockets

Aussie Open Update:

  • Kerber controls Kristyna from start to finish.
  • Vandeweghe comes down hard on Bouchard, and looks here to stay.
  • Pavly pounds out a hard earned 3-setter over Svitolina, and now faces Kuzny in what promises to be a battle of real heavyweights in the 4th round.
  • Murray wears down the gangly, cat in the hat Sam Querrey, to the delight of Mother Judy
  • Wawra doesn’t get distracted by the beautiful Ms. Troicki and holds off the Aaron Paul lookalike
  • Jo Willy prevails in 4 when Jack Sock gets blinded by his own, glow in the dark, orange socks.
  • Seppi separates himself from Steve Darcis.

NBA Update:

  • Timberwolves get out the axe and hack-a-Jordan on their way to a huge victory at Staples over the shocked Clippers…. Hey Doc, you have no excuse to put a player out there who shoots from the line like this… pathetic!
  • Digitally impaired from the start after Gasol’s finger gets ensnared, the Spurs still have no problem knocking out the Nuggets when Kawhi goes for a team high 34. #Nuggets #Spurs
  • It’s becoming readily apparent that as goes Goran, as goes the Heat. #Heat #Mavericks
  • Unfortunately for the Knicks, there was no Chinese Wall available to protect against the incursions of one John Wall. #Wizards #Knicks

Aussie Open Update — 1-18

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

Aussie Open Update:

  • Bad ankle doesn’t rankle Murray, who methodically reduces Rublev to rubble on the way to the third round.
  • Despite some other disappointments, Australia still tastes the winning Tomic.
  • Whatever makes Nick tick, some day the clock will run out on his youth and all he’ll have left is memories of crankiness, tanks, shanks, and being a first class wanker on the court. Kudos to McEnroe for calling it the way he sees it.
  • Fed sputters a bit but knows how to get it done against Noah.
