Down the stretch I come

It's almost 8.  I had dinner and am settling into the stretch run.

Duke is beating Charlotte by 40 right now.  Gonzaga and Michigan St. are on deck.  Hoping for some good games to finish off the night.  ESPN should do this more often.  I don't know if I could do this again.


High Noon and 12 hours into the Basketball Marathon

12 down and 12 to go.  Siena down to Northeastern right now with Bill Rafftery calling the game.  Wow I need a nap.


ESPN 360







7am and still going strong - Going on 8 hrs of basketball

7am update:

St. Peters up on Monmouth.  Evening started with UCLA getting upset, and Hawaii losing on its home floor.

6am tip off in New Jersey went off as planned.  Announcers giving New Jersey traffic reports.  Pretty good crowd for the early start.

Games will continue to be goos as the day goes on.  Time for some Cocoa Pebbles.




My Plan is to Watch 24 hrs of College Basketball on ESPN

At midnight tonite, ESPN starts airing its second annual "24 Hours of College Basketball", and I plan to be there for everyone of the games.  ESPN games will tip off every two hours, starting at midnight ET with Cal State Fullerton at UCLA.  I will update my progress on Twitter and here to let you know how it's going. 

ESPN's Andy Katz will be giving commentary for the entire 24 hours as well.  He's getting paid so he has to be more on point and alert than I have to be.

Commentator Dave Pasch and analyst Doris Burke will call the first and last games of the 25-plus hours: Cal State Fullerton at UCLA on ESPN at midnight and a Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off matchup from Tempe, Ariz., at 11:30 p.m. on ESPN2.

Here's the schedule:


Black Friday TV Deals look to save you Green

Everyone is expecting laptop and desktop computer deals this Black Friday, but it looks like television deals may steal the show. 

Target's Black Friday ad has leaked and there are two great door busters to be had.

How about some big savings on this 720p Western Digital 32" inch model.  Perfect for your office or bedroom.

Even nicer is this 40" in model.  It's from APEX and is $449.

Walmart had leaked some online deals:

19″ AOC Digital TV for $188

26″ Vizio 1080 HDTV for $367

I would think they might have some better instore door buster deals when their ads leak.

How about Best Buy with this 19 inch 720p television.

 Dynex 19″ 720p LCD HDTV (Model # DX-L19-10A) $149.99

Please note that most Black Friday ads have not been officially released.  All of the great deals mentioned in this post are deals that have been leaked.  The true Black Friday 2009 ads could reflect more levels of savings. However, if you need an HDTV pay attention to the ads as they are officially released.
