Couch Potato Alert: 2/13

This weekend, you will have a wide variety of sports entertainment to choose from for your viewing pleasure. If you’re in the mood for speed, then the Daytona 500 on Sunday should rev your interest. Or if you’re looking for a good rivalry matchup, then the Georgetown and Syracuse contest on Saturday should be at the top of your list. If you’re longing for a star-studded extravaganza, take a moment to tune into the All-Star Weekend from Phoenix. The NBA gets it right by showcasing the incredible talents of their stars in multiple categories, even though they lose points by changing the game of H-O-R-S-E to sponsor approved G-E-I-C-O.

Blogging the Bloggers: Steeler fans, Amare trade rumors and more

BUSTED COVERAGE has video of a drunk, half-naked Steelers fan who celebrates the only way he knows how — by power-bombing a young lady. No wonder Pittsburgh didn’t want to have a parade.

NBA RUMORS says that the Blazers are considering trading LaMarcus Aldridge for Amare Stoudemire. I don’t think I’d do that trade if I’m running the Blazers.

SPORTSBYBROOKS has the sad news that the NBA has decided to play “G-E-I-C-O” instead of “H-O-R-S-E” at its All-Star Weekend. Sigh.

SPORTSBYBROOKS has more sad news that only 1% of NFL players were willing to donate to the league’s alumni program that helps to give medical care to former players. Sigh.

– Luckily, DEADSPIN counters all this depressing news by bringing us the inspiring story (and video) of Patrick Thibodeau, a high schooler with Down’s Syndrome, who got a chance to start for the basketball team that he manages.
