That's right. It's Monday, which means it's time for the Cheers and Jeers portion of the blog. I didn't see a whole lot going on this weekend, but we'll get down to it and find something worth talking about.
Cheers to Anderson Silva who took down Dan Henderson on Saturday night in UFC 82 with a choke. It was a relatively exciting fight (as they all are) which is now prompting Gregg Doyel, over at CBS Sportsline, to call for a step down in weight class and a fight between Silva and Georges St. Pierre. It'd be one helluva ratings bonanza, and a good fight too.
Jeers to the Bama basketball team for losing at Ole Miss. Yeah, I know, it was at Ole Miss, but still. One of these days you've got to come up with a road win. This season doesn't really matter, but it would've helped to get the monkey off your backs, y'know?
Cheers to the Bama basketball team for scoring 22 points in the final 2 minutes of the game on Saturday to at least make it respectable. If you can play like that in the final 2 minutes, why not try it for the whole game? I vote that you try that at LSU on Wednesday night and see where we go from there. Otherwise, we may lose that one too.
Jeers to the Tuscaloosa News for their website crashing. Ridiculous. Shouldn't happen. Period.
Cheers to the already starting Spring/Summer concert season in Memphis. At Southaven's Springfest this year we've got Collective Soul, Eric Church, and Josh Kelley (all bands that I, for some reason, enjoy) and then the Beale Street Music Festival has already announced several bands before the official announcement this Thursday, March 6th, which include Santana, Sheryl Crow, Disturbed, Seether, Saving Abel, Aretha Franklin, Fergie, the Black Crowes, the Roots, My Chemical Romance, Joan Jett, and a ton more. I'm hoping for Sevendust, but I doubt that it happens.
Jeers to the baseball team for their two losses to Texas-Arlington over the weekend. We went 2-2 in the Friso Tournament, but that's definitely not good enough. At this point in the season, we are now 3-4, which doesn't look very good, especially considering we lost two games at home to Cal-Poly to start the season. Next up - Troy.
There wasn't a whole lot to do over the weekend, but I think I covered the basics. If you've got some cheers or jeers, go ahead and put them up in the comments section.
