I have no scientific evidence to back this up, but consistently in my life, bad shit disproportionately happens on Wednesday. I do not make doctor’s appointments, nor take my car to the shop on Wednesdays. I am always uncomfortable when a key basketball or footy match is scheduled for said day. That was the best part about Europa League (European footy’s NIT) – all the games were on Thursday, which is my GOOD LUCK day!
Anyway, that is my 1/16th-assed (h/t OSZ) attempt at an intro for your Wednesday open thread. I am off into the bitter cold to grill meatloaf burgers for my kids. It’s 27 out, and I may get to see flurries! Being North Cakalaky, panic is sure to ensue.
Your better sporting contest include: Nebraska at Sparty (6:30 EST, BTN); Texas at West By God Virginia (7:00, ESPNU); K State at BayBay (8:15, ESPN News); Villanova at Seton Hall (9:00, CBSSN); and Florida State at Louisville (9:00, ESPNU).
NBCSN has an Ice Footbaw doubleheader starting at 8, with 4 teams I know nothing about; and ESPN is showing the NBA if you consider that a sport for some ungodly reason. ESPN2 has Down Under el tenis (the sports unit was SO FUCKING EASY in high school Spanish, eh?) starting at 9, if you want to be all cultured and shit.
