Time to wrap it up around here, after a busy week of fun and firings:
One last read: The Mighty MJD on Vince Carter on Kobe.
Breaking news: Canada is looking pretty strong on the Skeleton run, Jeff Pain following Melissa Hollingsworth-Richards at the top of the heap; Martin Brodeur has signed a six-year extension with the New Jersey Devils.
Sports around town: The U of T Blues women's volleyballers, 14-1 in their league, have a pair of games at the Athletic Centre's Sports Gym this weekend -- Saturday against RMC and Sunday vs. Queen's (1 p.m. both days).
Watching: Suns at Cavaliers, 1 p.m., Sunday, Ch. 57. The Suns were supposed to struggle without Amare Stoudamire, but if anything, Steve Nash is making a more powerful case than he did last year for league MVP. Even more powerful than LeBron James.
Not watching: Maccabi at Zagreb, 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Raptors TV. It's either this or a repeat of Life and Times: the Rob Babcock
Years Months. The payoff for October's exhibition game loss at the ACC continues.
NFL picks: Almost had ya. Welcome to the worst weekend in the football season -- after enduring a week of non-stories, you realize you have nothing to look forward to but another week of even bigger, even less meaningful information. Heed JABS' first rule of pro sports: The bigger the stage, the better off you are ignoring the mounds of pre-event coverage. Besides, I'm still kicking myself for backing Jake Plummer last week.
