What to watch as your Wilson Pickett's Greatest Hits CD plays in the background ...
• Boxing: Valdemir Pereira vs. Phafrakorb Rakkietgym, for vacant IBF featherweight championship, at Ledyard, Conn. Better than Rocky V, not quite as good as Rocky III. [ESPN2]
• NBA: San Antonio at Miami; Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix. Remember when Duncan vs. Shaq was worth the time to TiVo the game? [ESPN]
• Tennis: Australian Open, at Melbourne, Australia. Party at our house, but those without a "no compromise" wristband will be not admitted. [ESPN2]
