Question of the Day
SUNDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION
Well after the Redskins snap out of their slump against the Bengals, real football starts in prime time with the Cowboys and Giants. 8 p.m., Chs. 4, 11
ON WASHINGTONTIMES.COM ” AN EXCERPT FROM D1SCOURSE
Saturday’s Memphis-Georgetown game marked the debut of the Jim Nantz-Clark Kellogg pairing as the top broadcast crew for CBS‘ college basketball telecasts.
CBS is celebrating by having the duo wear tuxedos for the proceedings. Whatever floats your boat, though it looks sort of lame.
(Don’t worry, karma has already slammed me for making such a suggestion; I’m stuck with only one NFL option in the late afternoon Sunday, and it involves the choice of Phil Simms for three hours or the mute button. That, of course, is an easy decision).
Anyway, since there’s no wedding or black-tie dinner in progress at Verizon Center, Nantz and Kellogg are completely out of place.
More importantly, I wonder how difficult it would have been to get the ultrasober Billy Packer - Kellogg’s predecessor, who left CBS this summer - to wear a tux.

TWT FIVE ” NEXT RECORDS to fall
Many people cite Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak and Wayne Gretzky’s 92-goal season as records that will never be broken. In a reversal, here’s a look at some of the most likely records to fall sooner rather than later:
1. 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, worst NFL record - See Culpepper, Daunte and injury, shoulder. Ruh roh … here comes 0-16.
3. 1975-76 Montreal Canadiens, most NHL points - Guy LaFleur’s Canadiens have been the points standard for a while with 127, but the Sharks look like they could hit 130.
4. Lenny Wilkens, NBA wins - Don Nelson is 45 back of Wilkens (1,332), who has the most wins and most losses.
5. Barry Bonds, career home-run record - Alex Rodriguez may end his career as the best player of all time. As for 762? Look for him to pass that by 2014.
