Today's show will be posted later today.

Here's the run down:
The latest on the Kobe tragedy
Leave it to the 4 letter network to hit a new low
The LA what she say?
NBA goes even lower
:24 seconds of silence
Best 1-2 punch in all of sports?
Pork you
This dog is Cooked
What’s the score?
Back to the grind for the NHL
The irony of it all
Stop it already

We’ll get to all of those stories, plus your phone calls, emails & tweets here on the SW show.

SB BETTING NOTES
6PT TEASERS...20 times BOTH teams would have won with the teaser. (37%)

Teasing the SB Favorite = 36-17 record
Teasing the SB Dog up = 35-16-2 record inc: 17-3 last 20 SB's**

9 times a 6pt teaser would have won on an OVER or an UNDER including 6 times in the last 20 SB's. (17%)

Teasing the total DOWN = 35-16-1 record
Teasing the total UP = 34-17-1 record

Teasing KC OVER (dropping the total) this year would only given you ONE more Over than the 10 regular OVER's they got.

Teasing KC totals UNDER (thus adding 6pts to the number) would've given you two additional wins and a push on top of the regular eight UNDER's they had.

Teasing SF UP 6pts gave you Four more ATS wins.
Teasing SF OVER's would produce 4 more OVERs out of the 9 games that went Under.

Teasing SF totals UNDER (Again, adding 6pts)
gave you 3 more UNDERS out of 8 games that went OVER with the original O/U number.
