It’s Super Bowl Sunday and I’m headed to the great state of New Jersey to hang with some buddies and watch the game. Can’t say I’m particularly enthralled by the matchup, but a party is a party.
Caught UConn’s thrashing of Providence yesterday at Gampel Pavilion, which will elevate the Huskies to No. 1 just in time for a trip to Louisville, which may be a better team. If the Huskies come out of there with a win on Monday, they’ll be legit.
Hasheem Thabeet went for 15 points, 11 boards and 10 blocks. He has no discernible offensive game and will be pretty good once he does.
A few public service announcements:
The Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville will host an evening with Brian Cashman on Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. It will be hosted by Ed Randall. The cost is $35. The Film Center is easy to get to via train and it’s a cool place.
Tuesday is also the date for the annual Thurman Munson Awards dinner. It will be at the Grand Hyatt and feature Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran. Apparently it’s a tribute to outfielders the Royals could not afford.
The dinner benefits the AHRC-NYC Foundation.
