The NFL Combine 2011, Milwaukee Brewers and UFC 127 are absolutely dominating the sports headlines on this Saturday afternoon. And considering we also have a full slate of college basketball games, plenty of action in the NBA, the WGC Accenture Match Play tournament, and assorted spring training exhibition games, I daresay it's going to be a busy day.
It all starts with the Combine. Friday was the first full day of workouts, and all eyes were on quarterbacks Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert. Of course, eyes have been on Newton for quite a while now, and the plan for him today is to both throw and run. Kind of a big deal.
The Milwaukee Brewers are something of a dark horse favorite heading into the 2011 MLB season. With the Cardinals losing one of their aces for the year, you might actually make the argument that they should now be the favorite in the NL Central. We shall discuss.
Last but not least, UFC 127 is tonight. There are 12 fights on tap for the good folks packed into Sydney's Acer Arena, the highlight of which will be the Welterweight bout between B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch.
All this and more is ahead! Happy Saturday, sports junkies.
