Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports ThreadWith the winter sports now all in-season, there's no shortage of options, even during an NFL Sunday. The NBA has a light but intriguing schedule. The NHL sees about half its league in action today. College basketball is mostly dark on Sundays, but Kentucky does take the court this afternoon. It's a pretty big day in soccer with a classic English rivalry, and MLS playoff game, and the US Women's Team in action later today. NASCAR has its penultimate chase race in Phoenix as Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth fight for the title. Finally, the tennis season is concluding with the World Tour Finals. Yes, the acronym is WTF.

According to Twitter, Kenseth's car is complete crap, and Johnson is going to all but win the title today. I expect many beer cans to be thrown. Don't let me down NASCAR fans.

Nadal won 7-5, 6-3, ending a difficult year for Federer.

Shocker already in the Premier League, as 19th place Sunderland beats Manchester City.
