Monday morning. Your alarm goes off for the first time in two days, you head back to the office and spend the first few hours of the workday planning how you’ll survive until closing time on Friday. Luckily, Poker Central and Death Wish Coffee have you covered. The world’s strongest coffee gives you a “Morning Perk,” recapping the weekend sports action on Monday and then the best from across the internet on Friday.
March Madness comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. The first weekend is jam-packed with action but this past weekend saw just two games play out, meaning there was less madness to go around. That gave us a chance to look across the rest of the sports landscape, including Opening Day, another match up of tennis legends and golf news before the biggest tournament of the year tees off next weekend.
Admittedly, few things about baseball get me excited. Opening Day and pitchers hitting home runs are two of them and we had both this weekend. Three games officially opened the season on Sunday before the majority of the league begin play on Monday and San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner went yard not once but TWICE! The Giants eventually lost and no, Bumgarner doesn’t hit home runs every time he pitches but would the Giants ever have him DH or pinch hit just to get him more at bats? I sure hope so.
