The sad part about a virtual sports section – which is what I consider SportsLink to be – is there are no Thanksgiving ads or coupons.
You can't sit in front of your computer and circle the toys and clothes and movies and music you're going to buy Friday before 9 a.m. so that your Christmas shopping is done. Then you eat too much, drink too much and sleep until noon.
Ah well, maybe next year.
So tell me, if you know, how big is the Thanksgiving New York Times?
The Gonzaga Bulldogs get to find out today, and they get to open the Times sports section and read about their upset of North Carolina. You say you want to do the same thing? Well click here and you can (though, unlike the Zags, you'll have to register).
(As an aside, it never ceases to amaze me how little some people who work at big-time newspapers actually know about the sports they cover. This story is an example of this. Nowhere in it does Bill Finley write about why Tyler Hansbrough (pictured, surrounded by David Pendergraft and Jeremy Pargo; Associated Press photo) struggled all night, he just blames him for the UNC defeat.)
Back to the stories. Here's Steve Bergum's piece from our newspaper. Poor Steve has to spend the holiday in New York away from his family. I hope you'll join me in wishing him a happy holiday. Don't eat too much.
Steve may have more later on his blog, though it is a holiday.
