When your favorite teams all win on the same day

1 04 2011

I feel sort of like Charlie Sheen (“Winning!”)

First it was Oregon Ducks basketball winning the CBI tournament championship game over Creighton at Matt Arena in Eugene. A 21-win season for the Ducks. No one could have predicted that, and now they get a trophy. Sure it’s a consolation prize but hardware is hardware and the Ducks had to win six games (five of them at home) to win this tournament.

Matt Court, when I went a few months ago.

It’s something to build off for next season.

Next, the Portland Trailblazers beat Oklahoma City in an important NBA game. The Blazers’ magic number for a playoff spot is two games. They’ll get in, it’s just a matter of whom they play in the first round. It has been another crazy year for the Blazers and yet here they are again right in the mix.

Lastly, the Dodgers beat the Giants 4-3, that’s two straight over the rivals and defending champs. 160 games to go but the Dodgers are off to a good start with two close wins over SF.

And now, in keeping with the spirit of Opening Day in baseball, a photo from 2008 when I attended the season-opening game in Pittsburgh. This is the Roberto Clemente statue at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
