1) Testy tells teammates that he wants to retire at season's end to spend more time with his family.
We don't know Testy's family, but... um... he's 6'-7", 245, with a history of, well, being Ron Artest. Has anyone asked the family what they want?
2) In the same day, Raffy Furcal goes off on a cart, Chone Figgins is out six weeks with fractured fingers, Joel Piniero loses the job to Jon Papelbon, FTT gets crushed in the Battle of the Blogs, and the Post Office loses our tax info.
Yeah, it's been that kind of week.
3) Joe Theismann, out, at MNF, to be replaced with Ron Jaworski.
What will you remember most? Me neither.
4) Peyton Manning hosted SNL, and it had a good moment.
We are talking about, of course, the United Way spoof where The Good Manning wounds children, tries to boost a car, and talks about how he treats snitches. We, of course, did not watch; SNL is what YouTube is for. (And the ability to include a YouTube clip was what a more competent blog is for, until NFL Adam gave up the knowledge.)
5) The Final 4 involves UCLA (Yay, Bill Walton is hap... oh crap), Georgetown (who the 'Cuse, of course, *OWNED*), Florida (what, again?), and THE Ohio State Annoyance.
And we're supposed to root for who?
P.S. from MediaWeek... The Peyton Manning-hosted Saturday Night Live on March 24 earned the show’s highest household rating in more than 10 months in the metered markets, averaging a 5.9 rating and 15 share.
In the Indianapolis market, where Manning plays for the NFL Colts, the show averaged a 23.0 rating and 49 share, four times SNL’s average in the market during the recent February sweeps.
