The Sunday – Speechless. Just Speechless.

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 10.2.2016

That Just Happened!

Folks, if the rest of October is like this, we are in for a real treat. Within a 20 minute span, Michigan beat Wisonsin with an amazing one handed interception, UNC hit a 54 yard field goal to beat Florida State in Tallahasse, Jacob Eason throws a bomb to put Georgia up 31-28 only to have Josh Dobbs complete a Hail Mary to Juwan Jennings moments later to win the ballgame 34-31.

The INT

The Kick

Never Give Up!

The Rest 

Ouch…

While You Were Sleeping

For Your Sunday

I am Patrick Peterson and I can make catches.

Patrick Peterson

Here, let me help you….

This is why we can’t have nice things!

 

Passings

Two tragic passings last Sunday. Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez died in a boating accident and Calgary Stampeders defensive back Mylan Hicks was killed in a night club shooting in Calgary. 

The Outpouring in Miami and around baseball has been moving to say the least. Nothing more moving than the Marlins first game after Fernandez passed. From the tribute on the mound…

To Dee Gordon’s lead off home run where he worn Fernandez’s helmet. It’s hard to hold back the tears.

Then there was the death of an icon, Arnold Palmer. He died late Sunday evening.

He was the King of Golf. The standard by which others will be measured. Not to mention that he has a drink named after him.

Take Down

This is what you get when you rush the field during the game and try shake Angel Pagan’s hand…..

takedown

Show Off

Sure, you can mock a pro golfer for missing a putt, just be ready to nail it yourself when they pull you out of the crowd.

How It Should Be

On Saturday the crowd broke into the national anthem. Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed removed their hats and placed them over their hearts as they walked up the fairway. With all the talk and displays of protest going on, it’s nice to see respect paid in the middle of the golf course. Especially when you are representing your country.

Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins – 2pm NHL.TV: Flyers are desperately trying to hold on to that last playoff spot in the east.

Atlanta Hawks at LA Clippers – 7:30pm NBA League Pass: Forget for a second that both these teams are very, very good and think about Steve Ballmer dunking.

UNC at Virginia – 3:30pm ESPN: The Tar Heels head north to Charlottesville to take on UVA in a top 10 matchup and massive NCAA Tournament implications.

Detroit Red Wings at Colorado Avalanche – 5pm NBC: It’s not the most ideal conditions for an outdoor game, in fact it should be a balmy 60 degrees when the puck drops. Probably not what the NHL was hoping for when they scheduled this one.

DurantGolden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder – 5:30 ABC: The Splash Brothers invade the house that Durant and Westbrook built. Rumors are swirling that Durant will join the Warriors in the off season but it’s a long time between now and then. This is going to be a stellar game.

 

Sunday February 28th

Manchester United vs Arsenal – 6am NBCSN: So Man U isn’t the team they once were…this is still a helluva soccer game.

Saturday February 20th

Duke at Louisville – 9am ESPN: It’s still strange to think that of this is as a conference game but it is. Duke is coming off a huge win at UNC this past week but they are a depleted bunch and this might be too much for Coach K and his Blue Devils.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Pittsburgh Penguins – 9:30am NHL.TV: These two are currently locked into the last two playoff spots in the Eastern conference.

Miami at UNC – 10am CBS: Huge matchup in the ACC. Carolina has to put the pieces back together after their crushing loss to Duke this past week. The Hurricanes are very, very good and could give the Tar Heels their second loss in a row at home.

Boston Bruins at Dallas Stars – 5pm NHLN: East meets West in a game of two teams headed for the playoffs.

Purdue at Indiana – 5:30pm ESPN: Purdue may be ranked higher but it’s Indiana that is tied for first in the Big Ten. It’s an in-state matchup with a whole lot riding on it.

Klay ThompsonGolden State Warriors at LA Clippers – 5:30pm ABC: Dub City vs Lob City from LA. Oh and they are first and second in the Pacific division. Seriously, is there something else you needed to do on a Saturday night?

Daytona 500Daytona 500 – 10am FOX: It’s that time of year again. Time for 200 laps and 500 miles of hard nosed racin. Buckle up and see if  Joey Logano can make it two in row. Boogity Boogity Boogity Let’s Go Racin Boys!

Chicago Blackhawks at Minnesota Wild – 12:30pm NBC: The division rivals head outside as part of the Coors Light Stadium Series. It won’t be snowing…or below freezing but it should be fun none the less.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Oklahoma City Thunder – 12:30pm ABC: These are two of the best teams in the league with the firepower to win it all.

Calgary Flames at Anaheim Ducks – 4pm NHL.TV: The Ducks are on fire right now and the Flames are looking to claw their way into playoff contention.

Manchester City vs Leicester City – 4:45am NBCSN: Two teams at the top of the table in the Premier League. Let’s do this.

Hertha BSC vs Boruissa Dortmund – 6:30am FS1: One of three big games in the Bundesliga this weekend. Dortmund looks to keep Bayern Munich within striking distance but Hertha has other ideas.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich – 9:30am FOX: The Bundesliga doesn’t get much love here but when it does, it features Bayern Munich.

Washington Capitals at New Jersey Devils – 10am NHL.TV: Devils are sitting on the outside of the playoff by virtue of a tie breaker. A win against the NHL’s top team would put a lot of confidence into that bunch.

Villanova at Providence – 11:30am FS1: #3 vs #11 on a Saturday afternoon and with Gus Johnson? Holla!

Purdue at Maryland – 1pm ESPN: Tune in to watch the Terps Melo Trimble do work. It’s something to see.

North Carolina at Notre Dame – 4pm ESPN: While Notre Dame isn’t the same power they have been in years passed, they are still a heck of a basketball team and South Bend is still a tough place to play.

Baylor at West Virginia – 5pm ESPN2: A top 25 matchup and WVU is coming off of a big road win earlier this week.

Chicago Blackhawks at Dallas Stars – 5pm NHLN: These two are neck and neck in the Western Conference.

Utah at Oregon – 1pm ESPN2: Underrated game out west for your Sunday afternoon.

Peyton Manning BroncosSuper Bowl 50 – 3:30pm CBS: If you don’t who is playing and the story lines and then you have been living under a rock on Saturn. It’s the Carolina Panthers vs the Denver Broncos by the way. Oh and it’s probably Peyton’s last game.

What To Watch: Fri. 1/8 – Sun. 1/10

All times are Pacific.

Friday January 8th

Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche – 6pm NHL Gamecenter: These two are separated by two points in the Central.

Utah at Colorado – 6pm FS1: A pleasant surprise for a Friday night.

 

Saturday January 9th
BisonFCS National Title – 9am ESPN2:
Jacksonville State takes on North Dakota State. The Bison are seeking their 5th straight National Title. To do it, they will need to slow down a very high powered Jacksonville State offense and a defensive line built on SEC transfers. And Jacksonville State’s one loss this year came in overtime at Auburn. The Bison have a tall task in front of them if they want their 5th straight title.

Washington Capitals at New York Rangers – 10am NHL Gamecenter: The Caps are the class of the NHL right now but the Rangers are no slouches. Sprinkle in some rivalry and you got a nice game for a Saturday morning.

Maryland at Wisconsin – 10am ESPN: Still seems weird calling this a Big Ten match-up but it is. This one features the #3 Terps in a very harsh environment in Madison.

Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans – 1:35pm ESPN: The Chiefs are the hottest team entering the playoffs. They have won 10 in a row but the Texans have come together and down it with four different quarterbacks under center.

Chicago Bulls at Atlanta Hawks – 2pm NBA League Pass: Second in the Central vs second in the Southeast.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Montreal Canadiens – 4pm NHLN: Sidney Crosby gets to play at the Bell Centre on a Saturday night. Sure it’s a real easy ticket to get.

Jim BoeheimUNC at Syracuse – 5pm ESPN: Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim returns to the Orange bench after a nine game suspension. It’s his last season leading the Cuse but we doubt the Tar Heels will show any mercy.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals – 5:15pm CBS: Is there anything better than a divisional rivalry masking as a playoff game?

St Louis Blues at Los Angeles Kings – 7:30pm NHL Gamecenter: These two are even in points but that means that the Kings lead the Pacific and the Blues sit in third in the Central.

 

Sunday January 10th

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings – 10am NBC: The game has a noon local kickoff time. That should put the temperature around 0 and that’s without the wind chill. Aren’t you glad you don’t have tickets?

Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins – 1:40pm FOX: Boy does benching Robert Griffin III in favor of Kirk Cousins look like a good idea now. Problem is that arguably the best quarterback in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers is on the other sideline. In any event we still have this Cousins gem.

Indiana Pacers at Houston Rockets – 4pm NBA League Pass: Paul George of the Pacers is having a heck of a season. He is 7th in scoring which is five slots behind James Harden of the Rockets. These two alone are enough to watch this one.

Villanova at Butler – 4:30pm FS1: Not a bad way to cap off the weekend. A Big East top 25 match-up in the heart of basketball country.

What to Watch: Fri. 12/18 – Sun. 12/20

All times are Pacific.

Friday December 18th

Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins – 4pm NHL Gamecenter: Two proud franchises and two that plan on making a deep run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Richmond at North Dakota State – 5pm ESPN2: It’s the first of two FCS Semifinal games. NDSU looks to make it to a fifth straight National Title game. Richmond hasn’t been there since 2008 when it beat Montana.

 

Saturday December 19th

Utah at Duke – 9am ESPN: Big out of conference match-up. Duke has not lost at home to an out of conference opponent in what seems like forever.

Villanova at Virginia – 9am ESPN2: One of four top 25 match-ups in college basketball this weekend.

UNC vs UCLA – 10am CBS: This one is being played at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Two legendary programs and two pretty good teams this year.

BYU vs UTAH – 12:30pm ABC: The Las Vegas bowl is a renewal of an old rivalry. One called the ‘Holy War’. Expect a good one and lets see if both teams can keep it a clean game.

Sam Houston State at Jacksonville State – 1pm ESPNU: The second FCS Semifinal match-up. Shootout probability: HIGH.

Butler at Purdue -2pm BTN: Another one of the top 25 match-ups in college basketball.

Ohio vs Appalachian State – 2:30pm ESPN: One of the more solid games this bowl season. Yes it has a funny name (Camilla Bowl) but these two teams have a combined 18 wins this season. That’s better than a lot of bowl games.

Montreal Canadiens at Dallas Stars – 4pm NHLN: Division leaders square off in the Lone Star State.

UFC on FOX – 5pm FOX: Lightweight title is on the line as Rafael Dos Anjos takes on Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Former Heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos takes on Alistair Overeem and Nate Diaz returns to face Michael Johnson.

Sunday December 20th

Watford vs Liverpool – 5:30pm NBCSN: Liverpool sits a point behind Watford for the seventh spot in the Premier League table.

Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings – 10am FOX: Big battle in the NFC North.

Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders – 1pm FOX: Aaron Rodgers returns home…and he gets to face Khalil Mack who had five sacks last weekend at Denver.

Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers – 1:25pm CBS: The best defense in the league (Broncos) takes on the second best offense in the league (Steelers). Any questions?

Atlanta Hawks at Orlando Magic – 3pm NBA League Pass: Solid match up for your Sunday afternoon.

OvechkinWashington Capitals at NY Rangers – 4pm NHLN: Alex Ovechkin and the Caps take their show on the road to the Big Apple.

Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles – 5:25pm NBC: The Cards are rolling and the Eagles have won two in a row against two playoff caliber teams.

All times are Pacific.

Friday December 4th

Bowling Green vs Northern Illinois – 5pm ESPN2: Sixth straight year Northern Illinois has been in the MAC title game and for the past three they have matched up against Bowling Green. Two years ago Bowling Green upset the heavily favored Huskies. This is always a fun game to watch.

San Jose Sharks at Anaheim Ducks – 7pm NHL Gamecenter: Nor Cal vs So Cal as the Sharks head to Anaheim.

Oregon at UNLV – 8pm ESPN2: The #15 Ducks head to Sin City to take on the 6-1 Rebels.

Nashville Predators at Detroit Red Wings – 4pm NHLN: Both teams have 30 points and don’t meet that often.

SDSU PumphreyAir Force at San Diego State – 4:30pm ESPN2:  Mountain West title game and features the best name in College Football, Air Force’s defensive back Weston Steelhammer. If that kid isn’t a General someday then there is something wrong with the Air Force promotion system.

 

USC vs Stanford – 4:45pm ESPN: Stanford has a slim shot of getting into the College Football Playoff but more importantly Stanford beat USC earlier this year 41-31. You know USC wants payback.

Michigan State vs Iowa -5pm FOX: Winner is the Big 10 champ, goes to the College Football Playoff and this game will have Gus Johnson doing the play-by-play. Boom!

North Carolina vs Clemson – 5pm ABC: UNC gets no respect. All they have done is win 11 games in a row and made it to the ACC title game. Well Clemson has won 12 and they site of UNC’s only loss? Charlotte where this game is played.

 

Sunday December 6th

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings – 10am FOX: The Vikings are the pleasant surprise of the NFL season while the Seahawks looks to stay in the playoff hunt.

MLS Cup – Columbus Crew vs Portland Timbers: 1pm ESPN: Couldn’t ask for two better teams to battle it out for the Cup. The Crew are looking for their second Cup in franchise history while the Timbers are looking for their first. If the Timber win it, Portland may riot. Seriously.

Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints – 1:25pm FOX: Yeah the Panthers are undefeated and the Saints can’t stop anybody, they are still division rivals and it’s in the Superdome.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Anaheim Ducks – 5pm NHLN: The Pens wrap up their Southern California trip with a visit to the Pond.

Vanderbilt at Baylor – 5pm ESPNU: A top 25 match up on a Sunday? Cool!

Friday November 13th

San Jose Sharks at Detroit Red Wings  – 4:30pm NHL Gamecenter: These two had some legendary playoff series back in the day.

USA vs St. Vincent & The Grenadines – 4pm ESPN2: Let the road to the 2018 World Cup in Russia begin.

USC at Colorado – 6pm ESPN2: Colorado is better than their record shows. USC has some NFL level talent. At night in Boulder is a tall order for the Trojans.

 

Saturday November 14th

Georgia at Auburn  – 9am CBS: Fact is, if Mark Richt and Georgia win then he may have saved his job.

Texas at West Virginia – 9am ESPNU: This is a swing game for both when it comes to Bowl eligibility.

Miami at UNC – 12:30pm ESPNU: Last time Miami was in the state of North Carolina they won by lateraling the ball like eight times. UNC is on a roll though.

Alabama at Mississippi State – CBS: Dak Prescott and the Bulldogs have one last chance to beat the Tide and prove that they are a force to be reckoned with in the SEC West.

Memphis at Houston – 4pm ESPN2: The over on this game should be like 150 points.

Oklahoma at Baylor – 5pm ABC: Game of the day and OU has always had problems defending Baylor. Question is, can OU keep place offensively?

FourtnetteArkansas at LSU – 5:15pm ESPN: Like old school, run oriented offenses and hard hitting defenses? Well this is your game. One is coming off a tremendous win in OT while the other got beaten down pretty good.

 

UFC 193 – 7pm PPV: Ronda Rousey takes her winning ways to another continent (Australia) to square off against Holly Holm. Hidden gem on this card is Mark Hunt vs Bigfoot Silva in a rematch of their legendary 2013 fight.

Washington State at UCLA – 7:30pm ESPN: Washington State lost their first game of the year to Portland State who plays in the FCS. People were calling for head coach Mike Leach’s job. Boy how things have changed.

 

 

Sunday November 15th

Toronto Argonauts at Hamilton Tiger-Cats – 10am ESPN3: It’s playoff time in the CFL and this is a great way to start it off. Both have had to overcome injuries at key positions and it’s the equivalent of a ‘backyard brawl.’

Minnesota Vikings at Oakland Raiders – 1pm FOX: A year ago we wouldn’t dream of making this a ‘must watch’ game but man, what a difference a year makes.

BC Lions at Calgary Stampeders – 1:30pm ESPN3: The defending Grey Cup Champion Calgary Stampeders begin the final run of head coach John Hufnagel’s career. They are heavy favorites but don’t count out the Lions.

Toronto Maple Leafs at NY Rangers – 4pm NHLN: Always a fun game to watch.

Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks  – 5:30pm NBC: Two top teams in the NFC West square off the end your weekend.
