Sports Junkie Sunday.

My mad sports Sunday, with the wife away for the weekend. Pretty good for someone without cable, I think.

7:45 - 10:00 am == off to a friend's house to watch the F1 Grand Prix of Italy. Monza! Delirious fans and a boring track. But a fun race for a change. Rubens Barrichello always looks on the verge of crying, and Kimmi Raikkonen always looks bored/bitter. Can't believe Bob Varsha still has a job.

10:00 am - 1:00 pm == errands, lunch, and checking message boards re the Canes, Packers, Tiger Woods, Lewiston MAINEiacs, the undefeated W&M Tribe, etc etc. Can't even read everything I want in the three hours.

1:00 - 4:00 pm == Jets vs. Texans. Good start, but kinda dull the rest of the way. Sanchez looks like the real deal tho. Also check out Panthers vs. Eagles for 30 minutes or so, until Carolina stops actually playing. Ugh.

4:00 - 7:30 pm == Giants vs. Redskins. Any day the Skins lose is a good day by my count. Commercials and halftime also lets me check out the golf "playoffs" and the US Open semis. Not a minute is wasted. Plus, bonus coverage of the Cardinals vs. 49ers. Can't see Arizona winning even eight games this year.

7:30 - 8:20 pm == NBC pre-game show. Always reminds me why I don't watch pre-game shows. At least Costas is not on screen full-time tonight.

8:20 -- 11:30 pm == Try as they might, the Packers just can't throw this one away. Thank God. Enjoyed not having Madden around anymore. Now if we can just get rid of Michaels too.


Phew. Nearly 13 hours of sports in one day. More if you could count channel-surfing as double. Add the eight hours of college football from Saturday, and I'm just about full. Until next Saturday, that is...

Casting top sports bloggers and fans for an on-line web cam sports debate show ( http://www.fanvsfan.com ) .

The show is styled after the ESPN show "Pardon The Interruption" or "Around The Horn" but bloggers and fans debate sports. It also has a traveling show like "College Game Day" and a blog aggregator / vertical ad network which will assist and drive traffic to your blog and earn you more money .

Top fans and bloggers compete in FanBowls / Featured debates and can win the use of the Ultimate Tailgate Machine (UTM) a 41-foot tricked out bus to take to a game to tailgate.
