Aaron RodgersIn the NFL, Monday Night Football featured a match-up of two teams needing a win for playoff hopes:  The Baltimore Ravens and The Green Bay Packers.  Both teams were heavily touted in the pre-season, but have had lukewarm performances.  The Packers played host at Lambeau Field, and they got the job done.  Aaron Rodgers threw for 263 yards and 3 Touchdown passes (two of which to up-and-coming Tight End JerMichael Finley).  The Ravens, on the other hand, couldn’t get much done.  Their quarterback, Joe Flacco threw 3 picks, and Ray Rice, their star running-back, had only 54 yards on the ground (and no touchdowns).  With this win, the Packers look like they could slide into the playoffs and possibly even pull an upset.  Green Bay 27, Baltimore 14.

Jim Harbaugh.JPGAnd in college football, it looks like Notre Dame will talk with Cincy coach Brian Kelly tomorrow.  Kelly has an impressive record with Cincinnati, and would fit the Irish head-coaching mold quite well. This is Kelly’s chance to really wow Notre Dame’s program, and he will do his best to sell himself tomorrow.   However, there is one other candidate they are seriously looking into:  Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh.  Harbaugh had a terrific season with Stanford, highlighted by a mauling of USC.  With Kelly, however, he has to prepare for a BCS bowl game.  If Kelly takes the job, there’s a chance he won’t even coach that BCS game against Florida.  We’ll see how this unfolds.


In the NBA, it was time for the triumphant comeback of Allen Iverson in Philadelphia.  Everyone knows the Sixers brought in Iverson primarily to sell tickets, but some hoped Iverson still might have some gas in the tank and reignite an exciting young Sixers team. And they played one of Iverson’s former teams, the Denver Nuggets (where Iverson was also supposed to be a savior a few seasons ago).  Well, to be honest, Iverson had a pretty good game.  He had 11 points and 6 assists, and even grabbed a couple boards.  However, the Nuggets were just too strong, led by Chauncey Billups (Iverson’s replacement) with 34 points.  Don’t worry Sixers fans, it will probably take a few games for Philly to jell.  Denver 93, Philadelphia 83.


Tiger and ElinWell, the Tiger Woods saga continues. There is a report that Tuesday early morning (around 2:30 am), a 911 call came in from Tiger’s home and a silver haired woman was whisked to the hospital followed by a black Escalade driven by someone that could have been his wife. This Tiger Woods thing just keeps getting more and more bizarre and the one thing we do know is it’s not going away anytime soon so stay tuned…..
