It was an exciting sports weekend.

Baylor, Gonzaga and San Diego State saw long win streaks snapped. Kansas got a big win at Baylor, led by Uduoka Azuibuike with 23 points and 19 rebounds. BYU blew out Gonzaga while UNLV handed the Aztecs their first loss of the season.

I called the Florida-Kentucky game and I love going to Rupp Arena. Big Blue Nation is such a passionate fan base.

The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl in Miami

It was great for Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and the comeback kids. They rallied from 20-10 down to prevail.

I had a great time at The Phog calling Kansas’ win over Texas Tech. Both teams are so well-coached.

The entire Sports World mourning the passing of Kobe and those with him in the helicopter crash including his 13 year old girl Gianna. What a terrible tragedy.

 

I was very impressed watching the number one team in America, the Baylor Bears. Scott Drew’s team was impressive in a win at Florida.

The Bears play hard on both ends of the court. They are outstanding defensively and do a great job on the offensive glass. Freddie Gillespie is one of the best stories in college basketball. He came from Division III Carleton College to become a factor.

I believe Baylor is a legitimate Final Four contender.

The Australian Open has had some drama. Roger Federer and Nick Kyrgios winning dramatic four=hour matches. Serena Williams was upset in the third round. It is the first major of the year.

One week til the Super Bowl. I like Kansas City to win the game.
