It's mid-February, and I know what you do on Sundays: You wake up, plan your trip to the grocery store, open your laptop, get ready to set your fantasy football lineups, and then -- in a sudden, brutal flash of recognition -- realize that it is in fact mid-February. Football ended weeks ago. Madonna danced, M.I.A. enraged people who had apparently never seen a middle finger before, Eli Manning went to Disneyland, Gisele stood by her man, and with that, your weekly Sunday routine ended for the next six months. What a horrible feeling, huh?
But don't fret, friend, for I bring you good tidings of great joy:
1. You still have college basketball, and there are usually some good games on Sundays.
2. This Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, our friends at ESPNU are re-airing an update of "The Street Stops Here," the 2010 documentary film about Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley and his program, St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.) high school, captured during the 2007-08 season. That team, in case you're wondering, featured the following college players: Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor, USC guard Jio Fontan, Florida guard Mike Rosario, Villanova forward Dominic Cheek, and Pittsburgh guard Travon Woodall. (How's that for a high school squad?) There are a ton of preview videos to pass along if you missed "The Street Stops Here" the first time around. If you saw it, good news: The update will include a post-film roundtable with Hurley immediately following the broadcast.
If there are two things in life I truly love, they are college basketball and sports documentaries. If you're anything like me, Sunday night should be just what the doctor ordered. And now you know. (You're welcome!)
