First off, I was trying to stay awake to watch Federer last night (actually this morning at 3am) but fell asleep. Inevitably he won, cause the guy he played had a sunburn – what a great excuse. Well there is still plenty of time this weekend to win some free money.
First the Lakers are in town to play the Celtics (pick em) at 3:30. 3:30 is an odd start time, I think the NBA scheduled this game so the aging Big 3 can get to bed before 7pm. Kobe and the Lakers are hot the Celtics are not sick, Lakers roll.
The NFL All star game or Pro Bowl is today I blogged earlier this week that the O/U was really low, lower than the Super Bowl. Well the odds makers must have read my post because it’s now 58 (higher than SB). I still love it. Final score NFC 41-AFC 34.
The Grammy’s blow. They are way too boring, way too many awards, like best Native American Musical Album (this is a real category) take Johnny Whitehorse. The performances are lousy and gone are the days when real bands like Guns n’ Roses would get shit faced during the 6 hour-long ceremony, then win best Rock Album, drop like 7 F bombs and grab the presenters ass during their acceptance rant. At least now there are odds so we can bet on them, so it’s a bit tolerable. My Picks…any category with Taylor Swift, Beyonce is her main competition, but too mainstream, the Grammy voters are stiffs and generally select lower profile nominees. MGMT, take them for Best New Artist, obscure for now, but after Sunday, Kiss 108 and Mix 104.1 will be over playing the shit out of Kids and Electric Feel, trust me.
