We've reached the point in the season where the bye weeks come into play. We've also reached the point of the season where just two teams remain unbeaten. The Packers and Lions are both 5-0, and will face each other for the first time on Thanksgiving day.
As expected, the inability to strike a new Collective Bargaining agreement has forced NBA commissioner David Stern to cancel the first two weeks of the NBA's regular season. Opening night was scheduled for November 1st, and the league has been locked out since July 1st.
The Milwaukee brewers are off and runing with a 1-0 lead in the NLCS after a thrilling, come-from-behind 9-6 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday afternoon at Miller Park. The Brewers were keyed by a 6 run 5th inning in which Cardinals starter Jamie Garcia was roughed up for four earned runs.
1. Get off to a fast start. In two losses in Arizona, the Brewers were outscored 7-1 in the first inning. They barely had time to catch their breath in playing catch-up from the get-go. If the Brewers can get on the board first, the crowd will turn Miller Park upside down, and the Diamondbacks will press.
Super Bowl media day. It's the annual cattle call of nearly 3,000 "media" (some with more serious credentials than others) that takes place during Super Bowl week.

Again, the term "media" is a loose one as there are a host of confusing and questionable characters roaming around looking for their angle.
Just a pair of undefeated teams remain in the NFL, and they both reside in the NFC North. The Packers and Lions could remain undefeated when they meet on Thanksgiving day. I'm guessing the ratings would be solid for such a game.

The Wooden Award, which recognizes the top collegiate basketball player in the country, has revealed its list of 50 finalists. On the pre-season list is Marquette Senior guard, Darius Johnson-Odom and Wisconsin Senior guard, Jordan Taylor.
Late in the 4th quarter, as the Packers (4-0) were imposing their will on the Denver Broncos (1-3), a small portion of the sellout crowd at Lambeau Field starting chanting "Tebow! Tebow!". Perhaps those people blinked and missed his one turn under center. On the Broncos' second possession, Tebow took a shotgun snap on first-and-ten, bobbled the snap, darted left, and was buried for a one yard loss. Back to the drawing board.
Here we go! We are about to embark on perhaps the most incredible sports weekend the state of Wisconsin has ever seen. I honestly can't remember a weekend in my lifetime where the eyes of a sports nation were so fixed on the sports happenings taking place on Wisconsin soil.
