More sports stuff...

The Seattle Seahawks killed the Carolina Panthers 34-14 to win the NFC championship game. Now history and Superbowl XL await. Standing in the way are the giant killing Pittsburgh Steelers....

Australian Open is underway at Melbourne. As always Federer is on a roll. And none of his main competitors remain. Nadal & Safin backed out due to injury, while Roddick & Hewitt crashed out. Now I can see just two tough matches for Federer: the next one against Tommy Haas, who is capable of pulling up some surprises; and David Nalbandian, who is one of the only three guys to defeat Federer in 2005 (in the season-ending Masters).

On the other hand the women's draw is pretty open. Any one among Davenport, Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, Sharapova can come through and win. Go Maria!!! Or will it be the "Swiss Miss" Martina Hingis who's making a comeback? Hmm, unlikely, but if it happens it would be like a dream comeback for her.

Skiing is fun!!! I tried it today and WOW!!! If you are up for some thrill, you should definitely try it. But be prepared to take a fall or two along the way :).
