San Antonio Spurs defeat LA Clippers 86-83. As unwatchable as this game was at least it was more interesting than Monday Night Football. Basically the game was like this: bad team A plays bad team B. Bad team B ties the game very late in the game but gives up a 3-pointer to bad team A with eight seconds left to go. Bad team B loses. Before Roger Mason made that three for the Spurs, the last time the Spurs scored was with 5:20 left to go in the fourth quarter. Both offenses are horrible. Fortunately for the Spurs Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli come back next month.

  • The baseball writers got it right! They voted St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols as the NL MVP. Pujols hit .357 with 37 homers and and 116 RBIs this season for the fourth place Cardinals. Perhaps most amazing is the fact that he did with with a sore right elbow that required surgery. Pujols also won the MVP in 2005. Phillies slugger Ryan Howard came in second despite hitting like Andruw Jones the first several months of the season. Milwaukee's Ryan Braun came in third with Manny Ramirez and Houston's Lance Berkman rounding up the top five.
