Great actor. Loved him in Hellboy, Snowpiercer, V for Vendetta.
Most open Rumble (and in turn, Wrestlemania card) in a decade coming up, though the results of the two title matches on the PPV might provide some clues.
My guess: one of the Raw guys wins, probably Strowman, setting up a Reigns fued. Surprise entrants: Samoa Joe (not that much of a surprise), Bobby Roode. No feeling on legend type.
Goldberg/Lesnar eliminate one another. Taker gets eliminated either last, next to last or by chicanery.
Today, was a great day for US tennis players. Both Williams sisters and the Bryan twins made it to the Australian Open Finals. It's incredible how these 4 players have been able to keep playing at such a high level for almost 20 years. Hope the new generations can follow suit.
Brent Musberger announced he's retiring from sportscasting and he'll be calling his last game on Jan. 31 (Tuesday).
Long before his ABC/ESPN days, Musberger was the face of CBS' The NFL Today.
Michigan highlights he called that stand out in my mind include the 1989 basketball national championship game, 1991 football vs. Notre Dame (Desmond Howard's diving catch), and UTL I.
Edit: AP reports that ESPN and Musberger said the Sugar Bowl/Mixon comments did not factor into this decision (I personally find that dubious)
The match versus Alabama will be on ESPN3 tonight at 6 EST.
It is being played in Florida at the new USTA campus. Good chance to see what should be one of the best Men's tennis teams in recent history start their spring season.
Big Ten Network and game publisher Riot Games will announce a partnership on Thursday, where 12 of 14 schools in the conference will compete in a season-long League of Legends championship. The league will start Jan. 30 and will be broadcast on BTN2Go and watch.lolesports.com, with the finals televised on March 27 by the Big Ten Network
So if you're bored with the basketball and hockey teams, there might be something new for some of you to check out. Looks like everyone in the B10 other than PSU and Nebraska will be taking part. I'm think Michigan has a pretty good team.
As a background, League of Legends is the most popular video game in the world, with over 100 million people playing every month. Recently some professional sports teams have begun investing into esports. Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks both own professional LOL teams. Former NBA player Rick Fox owns a team as well and is very personally involved in roster management. Shaq and A-Rod have also invested in teams. This is something you will be hearing more and more of in the future.
Here is Michigan playing against OSU recently (Best of 5 series. You can find the rest of the games easily enough if you're interested):
