Thursday sports tid bits…

Well, the new look Lakers are now 0 -2, so yes people it is now about two games.  They fell to the Portland Trailblazers last night, 116-106.  Kobe had 30 points, Dwight Howard had 33 points and 14 rebounds and Steve Nash had a very strange collision with Portland’s Lillard and later had to leave the game for good with a lower leg contusion.  These guys appear to be struggling  a bit as far as learning how to properly mesh their enormous talents and play together.  I would expect time to work this out.  That being said, LA is LA and falling short of a “blockbuster” type of performance will not fly in the land of major hits and stars.  It will not take long for Laker nation to push the panic button and the most likely casualty would be Coach Mike Brown.  Wait and see, it is still very early…

In some tennis news, another top seed bites the dust in Paris, this time on the indoor hard court of the Paris Masters 1000 Event.  3 Andy Murray fell to Janowicz, 7 -5, 6 -7, 2 -6.  That means both Djokovic and Murray (two of the big three) are already out of the Paris Masters event.  Meanwhile, Roger Federer, who chose to rest and withdraw, has been wining and dining his wife Mirka and playing with the twins!  They will all reconvene next week in London for the ATP Year End Final.  (GO ROGER, sorry I simply cannot stop myself!)

Thursday Night Football action will offer an important ACC College Football game, Virginia Tech at Miami.  They both have had their ups and downs this season, but in spite of that, the winner of tonight’s game will be the front runner to win the Coastal Division.  Not really sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

NFL action will offer Kansas City (1-6) at San Diego (3-4).   I think of the two, the college game is more appealing.
