Nat, Mike and Dan are wired on a combination of Superbowl week and a half-bottle of New Car Smell airfreshener Harry left in the studio by mistake. Dan makes the gang wait before swooping in, Batman-style, for a triumphant NHL round-up. In other news:
Nat's hosting the Superbash and Mike's back to being posh on the BBC for the Superbowl; the AFC wins the Pro Bowl in another disgraceful game of touch football that brought the NFL into disrepute; Aaron Ridgers reckoned that the effort on the NFC team was “embarrassing”; Osi Umenyiora is fined $20,000 for non attendance at the mandatory media day. He claimed that he misunderstood the schedule; the Muppets movie is making the guys all unneccesary; Miquita Oliver gets her first (and last) mention; in the hockey, team Chara beats Team Alfredsson 12-9 in the All Star game, featuring few stars; Marion Gabornik bagged a hat trick and the MVP award; the Rangers continue to lead the East, and the Capitals are third despite being eight points off the Flyers in Fourth; NBA-wise Chicago continues to lead the East, while Miami are getting back into it with 5 straight; OKC lead the West and are pulling away; it’s a while before the dunk contest at the All Star games but Blake Griffin has done it already – his dunk on Kendrik Perkins is being hailed the greatest dunk of all time; the average NBA ticket price has risen to $48.48; which is bad news for Allen Iverson who is officially in debt to his jeweler. Shame; Corrections and Clarifications; your questions in Mailbag, and much, much more...
