New Year’s Day “other” sports news

Amidst the bowl mania, here is a bit of other sports news:

NFL: Rumors swirl that Andy Reid (fired head coach of the Eagles) is at the top of the list of candidates for the now vacant head coaching position of the Arizona Cardinals (who fired Ken Whisenhunt).  Also, Bill O’Brien, head coach of Penn State University is atop the wish list of the Philadelphia Eagles. Also receiving mention is Chip Kelly of Oregon.  Both of these college football coaches are being considered for several NFL head coaching vacancies.  How interested are they?

Speaking of Penn State;  The state of Pennsylvania is rumored to be preparing to sue the NCAA regarding the sanctions imposed on Penn State University after the Jerry Sandusky scandal.  Penn State is not involved in the lawsuit, but really, when does this ugliness go away?

NBA updates:  The LA Clippers will put their seventeen game win streak on the line tonight against Denver.  The other team in the LA, you know, the Lakers and Kobe Bryant, well, they will host the 76ers tonight.

Finally, a love match!  Washington Capital’s star Alex Ovechkin and 14th ranked tennis star Maria Kirilenko have announced their engagement.  Congrats!
