Today's Preview
Golf, soccer, football, basketball, hockey - the usual mishmash. Or would that be a hodgepodge? Is there a difference? Either way, it's still Sunday, and so the NFL gets the lion's share (though hopefully not the Lion's share) of the attention - however, with 15 different matchups listed, every Streaker should find a matchup to his liking.

It's the final round at South Africa's Alfred Dunhill Championship, and Len Mattiace looks to bring three straight Wins home for faithful Streakers. This time he's teeing it off against South African Thomas Aiken, who leap-frogged into the lead with yesterday's 61, a course record. The duo is scheduled to begin at 5:05 AM Eastern time. And no, any potential playoff holes will not count towards the final round score.

The Streak then moves north from Mpumalanga to the Eternal City, where streaking AS Roma hosts Cagliari in a total-goals matchup. Both clubs have 20 points in Serie A play.

Crossing the ocean to North America, the Streak makes a quick stop in Canada. We pit the New Orleans Hornets against the Toronto Raptors in a "Which team will score first?" proposition - expect this 12:30 PM matchup to be settled before the early NFL games begin.

There's a wide array of NFL action on the board - choose carefully. There are even a couple player vs. player matchups to add a little spice. For those who like to revel in the misery of others, we've included the Seahawks-Rams tilt. If you'd rather watch a higher level of play, the Falcons host Tampa Bay in a game with major playoff implications.


NFL Football: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys
Oh c'mon, I don't need to explain this one. Giants. Cowboys. Primetime. This game could well depend more on who doesn't play than on who does play. The Cowboys are looking for revenge after getting blown out in Week 9, but that was with Brad Johnson taking the snaps.

The Streak ends Sunday back up in Canada, when we offer a rare total-goals NHL matchup. Florida travels 3000 miles from home to take on Vancouver - will the two teams combine for at least six goals?

Yesterday's Results
Buoyed by Mattiace (again), and Xavier's easy victory, Streakers won over 60% of their selections. The most exciting matchup of the day was our college basketball scoring prop between Sherron Collins of Kansas and Ricky Harris of UMass. Harris led most of the game, but Sherron hit a couple buckets in the waning seconds to win their head-to-head contest. Despite that, UMass won the war, with a 1-point upset victory over the heavily-favored #23 Jayhawks.
