OK, I know what’s been on everyone’s mind all week: Where the heck is “The Weekly Snitch?” It’s true, I’ve been procrastinating on posting this week’s column. With all the sports I’m surrounded by currently, from high school playoffs to professional basketball and Mixed Martial Arts, how can I not have something to share an opinion about?
From professional to amateur basketball, plenty is going on to snitch about. From up-and-comers to those already there, the hardwood is producing some memorable moments right now.
High school basketball playoffs this week
The Sac-Joaquin Section high school basketball playoffs start this week. It’s an exciting time for local area teams, when a whole season – and offseason – of work is put to the test in a single-elimination tournament.
Forget the January slide of the Sacramento Kings. What we saw last weekend was another fine display of Sacramento’s future, as two of the team’s rookies became superstars in the national spotlight. One local UFC fighter, however, didn’t have such good news to share.
The Super Bowl was yesterday. Did anything else during the week matter?
