Better Sports Day: SuperBowl Sunday vs. Today (Opening Day and NCAA Men's Champ)

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Firstime Caller, Apr 2, 2007.

  1. Was having this discussion, thought I'd post it here. Which one is better? I realize the answer could be different for a casual fan versus a big fan. Discuss. Could even open the discussion up from a professional standpoint. Which one is better/worse for covering and from a desk standpoint. Note: I was thinking of SuperBowl vesus today when it's both Opening Day and the NCAA Men's finals, not just SuperBowl versus Opening Day.

    No doubt it's today. The Super Bowl is not a sports day, it's a party/spectacle day on which a mediocre football game is played

    Baseball all day, NCAA final at night can not be beaten!

    Used to be a tie between today and New Year's Day.

    Now that the college football powers-that-be have pissed on Jan. 1 -- let's wait a few days to decide the national title; how about those two 8-4 teams in the Outback Bowl! -- it's today by a landslide.

    Uhhhh, let's see. Six hours of hype followed by (three out of every four years) a horrible game that only two fanbases in the country care about, versus 12 full hours of meaningful games, including the final game of the best playoffs there are (sorry, fellow puckheads, I still think the Cup playoffs last a few years too long).

    No real choice to be made there.

    Neither. First day of the NCAA Tournament is better than both.

    In the given choice, today is far and away the better sports day.

    Not this year's, with only VCU-Duke to care about.

    This is a great day, no doubt. But my favorite comes every weekend in October, with playoff baseball overlapping with college football going into conference play and the NFL races beginning to take form.

    This is a great day. But it's tied with the first day of the NCAA tournament.

    I'm a traditionalist. I also like Derby day and Indy 500 Sunday.

    Sundays are better than Mondays

    The silicon chip inside her head
    Gets switched to overload.
    And nobody's gonna go to school today,
    She's going to make them stay at home.
    And daddy doesn't understand it,
    He always said she was as good as gold.
    And he can see no reason
    'Cause there are no reasons
    What reason do you need to be shown?

    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    I want to shoot
    The whole day down.

    The telex machine is kept so clean
    As it types to a waiting world.
    And mother feels so shocked,
    Father's world is rocked,
    And their thoughts turn to
    Their own little girl.
    Sweet 16 ain't so peachy keen,
    No, it ain't so neat to admit defeat.
    They can see no reasons
    'Cause there are no reasons
    What reason do you need to be shown?

    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    I want to shoot
    The whole day down.

    All the playing's stopped in the playground now
    She wants to play with her toys a while.
    And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
    And the lesson today is how to die.
    And then the bullhorn crackles,
    And the captain crackles,
    With the problems and the how's and why's.
    And he can see no reasons
    'Cause there are no reasons
    What reason do you need to die?

    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    Tell me why?
    I don't like Mondays.
    I want to shoot
    The whole day down.
