Friday's Big Weekend Preview
Happy Holidays to all. Hopefully you're warm, you've done all the necessary shopping (end note: whoops), and are in the position to watch some sports with the heat cranked up. From Santa Barbara to New England, it's definitely inside weather. So grab a couch, a warm drink and enjoy the best sporting TV this weekend has to offer as you wrap presents.
Again, my 49ers bias flag will fly here, but how can anyone not be excited for 49ers vs. Seahawks on Sunday Night Football (8 p.m., NBC)? You've got a San Francisco team that just won a shootout with the Patriots, and a Seahawks team that's put up 12,785 points in its last two games (well, almost). Add to the mix that it's a battle between two of the biggest ego, Type-A coaches in sports, and we're at a level where you can't not watch.
College or pro, this weekend has enough basketball to keep you from going stir-crazy at your parents' house this weekend. Kansas plays Ohio State in a battle of Top-10s on Saturday (4 p.m., CBS) and the NBA, is, well, the NBA. There's a good chance you'll find something in here that doesn't disappoint.
