The weekend is over, which means that not only are we going back to work for the week (sans those who managed to get Presidents' Day off), but NBA All-Star Weekend and the excitement surrounding it is now over.
The Slam Dunk Contest was actually enjoyable to watch, and the NBA All-Star Game gave us plenty of excitement. Who won the MVP award in the game, and who got a triple-double? Yes, those two were different people.
The Daytona 500 also took place yesterday, with a crash taking out many top racers, paving the way for somebody to win that no one saw coming, a winner who shattered several Daytona records in the process.
All this and the Texas Rangers will be looked at as today's top news stories come in.
