This Week In TPSports…Some International Kickball (Mar 30/09)
Total Pro Sports – So the NCAA Tournament is winding down with Michigan State, UConn, UNC and Villanova all headed to Detroit for some Final Four weekend action. With only three more games to play, the teams will take the week off and get back on the court this upcoming Saturday. That means no more NCAA weekday games, but don’t let that get you down. There’s still plenty of sports television to enjoy throughout the week.
Here are just a couple things that may interest you:
UEFA World Cup Qualifying
Wednesday April 1
In the midst of UEFA all the Champions League, UEFA Cup, and league games, these players still have to make their home country’s proud and suit up in their national colors for World Cup Qualifying Games. With some tight races heating up at the top of some groups, ever game becomes critical now. Some games to keep and eye on this week: Republic of Ireland vs Italy; Ukraine vs England; Spain vs Turkey; Lithuania vs France.
NHL, New Jersey Devils vs Pittsburgh Penguins
Wednesday, April 1, 7:30 pm ET
The streaking Penguins will look to stay hot as they face the Eastern Conference’s 2nd place Devils. With Martin Brodeur back, the Devils have looked like legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, but the Penguins have had different ideas as of late. After tanking for the first 3/4 of the season, Crosby, Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins have regained the form that brought them to the finals just a year ago. Can they do it again? There are good chances that one of these teams could be playing for the big prize in the end.
NBA, Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic
Friday, April 3, 8pm ET
Another big matchup in a rejuvinated Eastern Conference. Not too long ago the list of teams in the Eastern Conference that could realistically compete with the Western Conference was maybe two at best. That list is slowly growing and you can attribute much of that to these two teams. Cleveland has been playing like a serious threat to win theChampionship all year, and Orlando has shown signs that they have the same intentions. These tow powerhouses will want to prove something one the court in this game.
