Play of the Day – 4/3/11

Top Play: Tyler Colvin throws out runner for double play

This was clutch for the Cubs at the time, even though they ended up losing 5-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Also note how Geovany Soto face checks Jaramillo during the tag. Priceless.

Runner-up: Brent Seabrook destroys Steve Downie

Got to show some love for Brent Seabrook for this great hit on cheap-shot artist Steve Downie. Love seeing Downie trying to get into a scuffle only to be shrugged off like a fly.

Play of the Day – 4/2/11

Top Play: Derrick Rose skies to block James Johnson

I don’t think James Johnson has been rejected like that since the high school prom.

Runner-up: Jimmy Howard goes post-to-post to make miraculous save

As a Hawks fan you want to see that puck go in, but I have to give Jimmy his due here for that save.

Play of the Day – 4/1/11

Top Play: John Mayberry Jr. hits a walk off single to win game for Phillies

Nothing better than seeing a pinch hitter get the job done when his team needs him most.

Runner-up: Corey Crawford saves lead to Kane goal

This is two-way hockey at it’s finest.

Top Play: Ben Eager five-holes himself for goal

The former Hawks’ enforcer takes a pass and converts it to one of the best goals of the year.

Runner-up: Jacob Tucker wins NCAA dunk contest

The Illini should get this guy to transfer.

Play of the Day – 3/26/11

Top Play: Derrick Rose making Brandon Jennings look like a fool

I haven’t seen anyone get turned inside out like that since Tyreke Evans.

Runner-up: Derrick Rose… again

Great play on both ends. Good find by Derrick, good conversion by Brew.

Play of the Day – 3/25/11

Top Play: Brandon Knight sinks Ohio St.

Brandon Knight is the epitome of clutch for Kentucky this tournament. Possible top five draft pick now?

Runner-up: Sam Young put back dunk on Bulls

At least it wasn’t Tony Allen doing it on us.

Play of the Day – 3/24/11

Top Play: Emeka Okafor circus shot buzzer beater to force OT

I don’t think Okafor has ever taken a shot from this deep in his entire life until last night. What’s more impressive is how off-balance he was to still bank it in. Fortunately New Orleans beat the Jazz in overtime 121-117.

Runner-up: Derrick Williams’ put back dunk on Duke

After watching yesterday’s game, Derrick Williams = GOD (and the first overall pick)!
