Good morning, gang!   Davey Mac here and we’ve got an exciting Sports Report for ya!   Basketball!   Hockey!   Football!   And even a little hot stove baseball!   But first!

We’re down to the final four teams of the NFL as we have the Conference Championship games this weekend.   We’ve got the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship.

And we have the San Francisco 49’ers going against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship.   So the question is…who’s going to the Super Bowl?

First up…the Eagles…Jalen Hurts and the Philly squad looked absolutely incredible on Saturday.   They dominated the Giants, 38 to 7, and Hurts looked like his shoulder injury is a thing of the past.

Meanwhile, rookie Brock Purdy continues to have one of the greatest Cinderella stories in recent Sports history.   The QB was drafted LAST…started the season as the third-stringer…and now is a game away from the Big Game.

Then, you have Patrick Mahomes.   He’s won a Super Bowl and MVP already…and is arguably the best quarterback in the league…but he suffered a nasty ankle injury this past weekend.   How healthy will he be?

Lastly…we have Joe Burrow…who has had another tremendous postseason…and is looking to get back to the Super Bowl for the second time in two seasons.   It’s a touch call…who do YOU got?!

  • Yankees Sticking With Hicks

    In a recent interview, Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said that Aaron Hicks will more than likely be the Yankees left-fielder starting the season.   Hicks, who seems like an old 33, hit just .216 with eight homers and 40 RBI in 130 games last season.   He was just awful.

  • Brady Hasn't Made A Decision Yet!

    Tom Brady is not giving anything away about whether he’ll retire or not.   On an interview with journalist Jim Grey, Brady said, quote, “Jim, if I knew what I was going to [bleeping] do, I would’ve already [bleeping] done it, okay, I’m taking a day at a time.  I appreciate you asking, thank you.”   Ouch!   Brady a little testy!
