Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

The weather these days is absolutely insane. I never know what to expect from one day to the next. Just last week, I was spending a good ten minutes each morning shoveling snow from my driveway and off of my car, and most of this week it was so nice and warm that I didn’t even bother to put on a winter coat.

Earlier today, I came thisclose to chain-starting a 14-car pileup on the highway thanks to the wet snow that materialized overnight and this morning. Not good times. I don’t know what’s going on with this weather, but I have the sudden urge to invite Al Gore over for dinner.

Whatever the case, I’m not interested in discovering what Mother Nature has in store for me by venturing outside this weekend, so here’s what I’ll be watching as I veg on the couch:

Orlando vs Denver: Two of the League’s youngest and most likable stars (Dwight and Melo) trying to help their teams elbow their way into title contention.

Minny vs. San Antonio: Remember when everyone used to look forward to this matchup? Nope, me neither.

NFL Playoffs: Giants vs Cowboys: How long can Giants fans count on Eli Manning to not crap the bed? Not very long would be my guess.

Enjoy the games and the weekend everyone. Be safe out there.
