The Detroit Red Wings rode their patented combination of speed and skill to overcome Ryan Kesler and the Vancouver Canucks in a 4-3 shootout victory Thursday at Rogers Arena.
Kesler and the Canucks proved they can play with the best the Western Conference has to offer, but were unable to maintain an up-tempo style of play for a full sixty minutes against the...
NCAA Basketball Betting- Ducks, Buffaloes Get Ready For Pac-12 Clash

Touch decisions for Wedge
The Seattle Mariners have made quite a few acquisitions this offseason to compliment their already young roster. Most notably is the trade to get Jesus Montero from the Yankees. That move alone gave Mariners fans a shot of excitement and a reason to show up to Safeco Field this year.
The conundrum for Eric Wedge will be how young does he want this lineup...

The Seattle Mariners went out and stockpiled a lot of pitchers this offseason. That is on top of the slew of young talent they already have in the minors and in their current starting rotation.
We saw Michael Pineda get traded away, but we also saw a big list of new names come to town to compete for spots in the Mariners starting rotation. Veterans like Kevin Millwood...

Infielder Carlos Guillen, who began his major-league career with the Mariners in 1998, has signed a minor-league deal with Seattle that includes an invitation to spring training.
The Mariners have Chone Figgins and Kyle Seager in the utility role already don't they?
The only thing I can see Guillen doing is bringing in some more power. (Much needed)

Well done Portland! Well done!
Kris Boyd, the all-time leading scorer in Scottish Premier League, will fill the hole left by the Kenny Cooper trade no doubt.
Signing Boyd as a designated player means some of his salary will not count against the MLS salary cap. EVEN BETTER!
Kris Boyd scored 164 goals in the Scottish Premier League.
Just checking. I haven't seen him either!
His scoring average has dipped to 13.2 points per game. 3.1 points less than his season high, and his confidence has plummeted with it.
He calls the funk the worst of his career at any level. Behind the scenes, he is regarded as the hardest worker on the team. So what gives?

Austin Apodaca, a high-school QB from Colorado, committed early to the Washington St. Cougars.
After coach Paul Wulff was fired, Apodaca had to wait it out, to be sure Mike Leach wanted him.

Gettin it off my chest!
This week, things that bother me about the Canucks and the NHL.
Not a fan. At all. He has seven points (sixth among defencemen on the team), 57 PIM (third on the team), +1 (middle of the team) and two danger hip checks per game (leading team. by a lot).
He contributes NOTHING, and every game could potentially be another bad moment when cripples...

UCLA (12-9) vs Washington (14-7)
It is a down year for the PAC 12. Part of the reason the league is thought of so poorly this year has been the play of UCLA which started the season with back to back losses to Loyola Marymount and Middle Tennessee State.
Thursday February 2
Alaska Airlines Arena
