In today’s SPORTS w/ PATRICO we chat about Adam Wainwright doing something that he hasn’t done since 2010. The Kings are on FIRE in the NHL. We chat some NBA playoff chat, and some NFL news including the ProBowl and NFL Safety.
Adam Wainwright pitched his was to his first shutout victory since 2010 last night as the Cards got the win over the Padres 4-0. Carlon Beltran and Matt Holliday both had multi hit days. Tonight the two teams are back in action at Busch…first pitch scheduled for 7:15PM as Lance Lynn gets the start for the Cardinals.
The Los Angeles Kings beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in overtime last night in Phoenix. They eliminate the Coyotes 4 games to 1 and are the first team to punch their ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals. They are the FIRST TEAM in the NHL to win every single game they have played on the road to head to the finals. They will play the winner of the Rnagers/Devils series which is tied at 2 games a piece and game 5 is tonight in New York.
More NBA action last night as the Heat beat the Pacers 115-83 last night. They now take a 3-2 lead in that series. ALL NBA ACTION SCHEDULED HERE!
You know how the NFL is so set on creating a safer league? Well, they’ve made another step. They have now made in mandatory in the 2013 season…that all players…must wear knee and thigh pads. Because, apparently, knee and thigh pad injuries are out of control. Seriously? Retarded.
And finally – we all thought this was over with…but it looks like it may be hanging on by a thread. Owners meetings in the NFL are kicking off – and the Saints owner has made it very clear that the Sunday before the Superbowl – the Superdome must be available because he wants the ProBowl there. The leagues Players Association was even FOR the game saying: it is an “important tradition,” adding that it was “in talks with the league to improve and preserve the game for our players and fans.”
