The Virginia basketball team has a huge game at home tonight against Duke.  A win tonight against Duke I think would put the Cavs in this years NCAA basketball tournament.  The Virginia baseball team improved to 8-0 with a 11-0 win over George Washington yesterday, the Cavs will be at home this weekend for 3 games.  The Colonials baseball team will hold its first scrimmage at home Saturday morning at 11am, I have to say it is going to be a bit cold.  The whole right side of my body is very sore and I seem to be trying to catch a cold.  Speaking of cold some of the weatherman in the area are predicting a big snowstorm next week, I don't want any snow period.  I am going to work.  MICKEY

Well the Nascar season officially starts this afternoon with the running of the Daytona 500.  There was a very bad wreck on the final lap of the Nationwide yesterday in which several fans where injured and two of the fans where critically injured.  All of the drivers walked away from the incident and after watching video of the wreck it's a miracle that more fans were not seriously injured with a couple of tires and the engine coming off the car and numerous other parts.  I think we could have a surprise winner of the 500.  The Virginia basketball team will be back at home today against Georgia Tech looking for another ACC win.  The Virginia baseball team will be looking for a series sweep against Toledo this afternoon.  Well it is suppose to make to 60 degrees today but this morning I have to say I don't think it is going to make it that high.  MICKEY

Well our 1st baseball scrimmage of the year will be next Saturday at Shepherd Stadium.  I am hoping the weather will cooperate and will be sunny and warm but I don't think that is going to happen.  We did have a pretty good week of practice despite the colder weather, the only day that I was really cold was on Thursday.  The Virginia baseball team improved 5-0 yesterday with 15-0 win over Toledo, the Cavs will face the Rockets again today and tomorrow weather permitting.  The Nascar Sprint Cup Series officially kicks off the season tomorrow with the running of the Daytona 500.  Have a good weekend.  MICKEY

Well we had our 1st official day of baseball practice yesterday and yes we where able to get on the field despite it drizzling most of the day.  The only area the field that was really soft was the area around home plate but we stayed off of that area yesterday.  It was a bit cool but once I started moving around a bit it wasn't to bad but it does look like it is going to be a bit cooler today even though the sun is going to be out.  MICKEY

The Virginia Cavaliers baseball team opened up the season yesterday with a 14-4 win at East Carolina in game 1 of a 3 game series.  They will play game 2 of the series this morning at 10am, the game was moved up due weather conditions.  We will have our fist baseball scrimmage 2 weeks form today and baseball practice officially begins on Tuesday.   The Virginia basketball team has a big game down at North Carolina today, the Cavs need a wind today to make there case for making this years NCAA basketball tournament.  Down at Daytona tonight they will run the Sprint Unlimited which use to be known as the Bud Shootout and the Busch Clash an this qualify tomorrow for the Daytona 500.  It looks like we might get a bit of snow this afternoon which is not very good for baseball practice, hopefully it will only be a flurry.  MICKEY

Its going to be a rainy start to the work week today with about a 70% chance of rain but it is going to be a warm day day which is good with temps near 70.  There is also a pretty good chance of rain on Wednesday and there is another chance of precipitation next weekend.  Its hard to believe that baseball practice starts next week, I hoping that the weather weather will cooperate.  I went to the beach this weekend and it was bit cold but it was the beach none the less.  MICKEY

Well my legs are a bit sore after running outside yesterday for the 1st time in about a month, I have still been running but only on the treadmill since it has been so cold and windy.  It looks like some more rain is on the way tonight and it should last through Friday.  My arm is feeling pretty good despite throwing allot of pitches on Tuesday night but I will throw allot more pitches tonight.  I hope to update my blog on a more frequent basis once baseball season starts however I might just switch all my thought to Twitter.  MICKEY

Well it is Super Bowl Sunday and yes I will watch the game even though the Packers and Redskins didn't make it again to this years game.  I really do not have a rooting interest in this game but 49ers are favored by 4 which usually means Baltimore will win the game.  There will be also another Super Bowl played today in the advertising world because of the amount of people watching the game and I am sure there will be some very creative commercials for sure.  The New York Rangers look pretty good last night beating Tampa 3-2, hopefully it will be the start of a long winning streak.  The Virginia basketball team will be on the road at Georgia Tech this afternoon, so far the road has not been to good for the Cavs falling to both Clemson and Wake Forest on the road.  MICKEY

Well today is the 1st day of February and yes it is my favorite day of the week and yes I am very glad that it is Friday.  My arm is very sore after throwing allot of pitches last night, I just have not found my groove yet this year.  It sure feels cold outside this morning after being in the 60's just a few days ago at this time.  Well I am heading to work.  MICKEY
