Sports Trivia Friday - One of the Most Uneventful Sports Weekends Ever!

The weekend after the Super Bowl tends to be one of the most uneventful sports' weekends of the year. But here are a few jems to wow the ones you love.

Okay, if you missed it...the NY Giants won the Super Bowl. It was a huge upset win over the 18-0 New England Patriots, but I guess they had to lose sometime. Eli Manning was named MVP of the Super Bowl. If you are keeping count, that is two Super Bowl MVP's in a row for a Manning...too bad it isn't the same one. (Big Brother Peyton won the MVP last year.) Although Maning got this prestigous award, many would contend that the Giant defense should have won the MVP award. But since the defense isn't just one person, they didn't win.

Here is a question any true football fan would be impressed with...So how do you think Tiki Barber is feeling now that the Giants won the Super Bowl? (Background info: Tiki Barber was a NY Giant last year, but retired to be a sports commentator and bagged on Manning and Tom Coughlin - the head coach - saying that Manning wasn't a good leader and Coughlin was a terrible coach to play for. Soap Opera material...I know!)

Two other quick things of interest this weekend...

The AT&T Pro-Am Golf Tournament is being played at Pebble Beach this weekend. Tiger Woods is not playing in this tournament so it is up in the air for anyone to win. Celebrities of note playing in this tournament (the amateurs a.k.a. the "Am" in Pro-Am) are George Lopez, Huey Lewis, Carson Daly, Ray Romano, Michael Bolton, Dan Marino, and -back the truck up - JOSH DUHAMEL!!! (Maybe it is not to late to show great interest in golf and ask your husband if you can go to this wonderful tournament! (Or at least a reason to sit and watch on Saturday!)

In the world of basketball, Shaquille O'Neal was traded from the Miami Heat to the Phoenix Suns. He certainly isn't the player he was a few years ago, but the guy still has to make money. How else is he going to pay for the $200,000 a month he spends on gas for his cars, boats, etc.???
