A week after losing to Virginia Tech, #6 Wake Forest goes and beats # 1 Duke, all thanks to this guy. James Johnson scored 13 point, including the shot with 0.8 seconds left to win the game, 70-68. Duke’s Kyle Singler had 22 points and 12 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough. Continue reading
The Virginia Tech Hokies brought down the #1 team in the land, upsetting the Wake Forest Deacons, 78-71. I’m sure there are very few things that feel better than beating a #1 team at their home. Malcolm Delaney scored 21 points and Jeff Allen added 16 in support of the Hokies. Continue reading
The Celtics took out their recent frustrations by winning their 3rd in a row, beating the poor Nets, 118-86. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett combined for 42 points, while Devin Harris led the Nets in scoring, with 17 points. Continue reading
The Yankees aren’t done with their Xmas list. Not yet. It’s rumoured that they’ve offered A.J. Burnett a 5 year deal. His agent is looking for something in the $90 mil range. I cannot possibly see that ending badly. *Cough* Jaret Wright/Carl Pavano *Cough* Continue reading
The Allen Iverson-led Pistons shut down the Cavaliers and their 8-game winning streak, 96-89. Lebron had 25 points, against Iverson’s 23 points.

And yes, I’m quite aware of the irony of my admiring his body in motion, and using a still photo to prove that point, but bear with me.
In news that only I care about, David Wright and Carlos Beltran get Gold Gloves in the National League. I’m a little dismayed at the lack of GG love for Santana, who is a joy to watch fielding his position. Instead, Greg Maddux gets a record 18th Gold Glove for his fielding excellence.
Also winning Gold Gloves were Yadier Molina, Adrian Gonzalez, Jimmy Rollins, Brandon Phillips, Nate McClouth and Shane Victorino.
In other good news for Mets fans, the team picked up the option on Carlos Delgado. Now, they’ve just got to find a whole new bullpen.
When TSW started the Friday Football Foodie, I immediately pounced on the idea of posting a how-to on how to make empanadas. The fact that I did not know how to make empanadas was not important. I’d solicit the help of one of my sisters-in-law (I have legion), and boom! We have empanadas.
I never realized that it’d take me 13 months to actually get it done. I’m a master procrastinator, what can I say?
Here’s all you need. Simple as pie (why do people say this? Making pies doesn’t look easy!). Continue reading
