Getting the Itch

Ah yes, April 3rd is right around the corner.  While you may be freezing in some wintry weather, the boys of summer are getting ready for the 2006 season with a little World Baseball Classic.  The U.S. squad won their opener against Mexico on the arm of Jake Peavy.  Chase Utley put up a doughnut.

Apparently, those Latinos know how to rock it out at their baseball games.  Latinos do their best Phanatic impressions on dugout [Jim Salisbury, Inqy]:

Fans jumping on top of dugouts, dancing, hugging and waving flags. During the game, for crying out loud.

Sixers' game vs. Kings rescheduled for Jan. 30

The NBA has determined a new date for the Sixers home game against the Kings, which was postponed on Nov. 30 because of unsafe playing conditions on the court.

The game has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. This will create back-to-backs for both teams.

The Sixers are playing in Chicago on Jan. 29. They will play consecutive games against the Bulls and Kings, then have a road back-to-back against the Mavericks and Spurs on Feb. 1 and 2.

The Kings will be on what is now an eight-game road trip. They will play a back-to-back against the Rockets the next night in Houston.
