We have the Heat coming back from the All-Star break playing the New York Knicks in NY at 7:30. The Heat is on a nice run winning their last three (Detroit and Orlando twice). Hopefully they can continue the streak. I really like the starting lineup with Antoine Walker. Not only is his performance better when he is starting, but I also feel that Posey comes off the bench with something to prove.

Heat - 107
Knicks - 97


The Gators Baseball team swept Miami in Coral Gables over the weekend. Very big accomplishment for the Gators. I think I remember reading this was the first time we have swept them in Coral Gables. Looks like that number one ranking is the real deal. With a young pitching staff, it will be an interesting year. No breaks too, because the next two weeks they play Wake Forest, FSU, and Texas A&M.

The other big game tonight is the Gators hosting Tennessee. Both teams need this game coming off losses over the weekend. Alabama crushed Tennessee, and the Gators lost to Arkansas in overtime (gave up another close one at the end of the game). I have a feeling both teams will come out with a lot of energy. I'm hoping for a close game like the game in Tennessee, but for some reason I have a bad feeling about this game.

Gators - 57
Tennessee - 73


Our buddy Ricky Williams failed his fourth drug test. He must have found out I have season tickets for next year. They have kept most of the news on this pretty hush, hush, but it looks like we won't be seeing Ricky for another year. Hopefully Ronnie Brown can stay injury free next season, because it looks like he is going to have to carry us the entire season.

There has been lots of talk about the QB position. The big names people have been talking about are Culpepper, Brees, and McNair. All of them are a crap shoot. Culpepper isn't supposed to be ready until October or November. Brees is progressing faster than expected, but I think he is still a big gamble. McNair hasn't played an entire season in how many years now? I say go with Gus for one more year, and get a young guy in the draft. If there is nobody in the draft, wait for the free agent market or draft next year. It's not like we are going to win the Super Bowl next year.
