Doug Franz's weekend wishes

I'm looking for Florida, Michigan State and Louisville to advance to the Final Four (I picked Creighton so the UA game means nothing to me). It's simple. If that happens and MSU beats UofL in the final, I win the station bracket contest and, more importantly, the money of my coworkers.


Come out on fire against the Knicks. Bring the passion they rarely bring to the first quarter. The Knicks are soft. They'll come out with energy early and gage the desire of the opposition. If the Suns take the fight to New York, they'll fold.


Beating Minnesota does not guarantee a playoff spot, mathematically speaking, but it comes close logically speaking.

If the Coyotes win and average only one point per game over the last seven games, Dallas or Vancouver would basically need to win every game.


Just get through the weekend without news of any injuries. The Dodgers and Giants present enough of a challenge in 2014. The injuries have already taken a toll on a team that entered the season with little margin for error.

Grow strong David Hernandez.

When you started with Bonneville Phoenix: 1st Doug & Wolf Show: 1/2/07

Favorite sports memory: Goldschmidt's triple icing the 2011 NL West title because it was a daddy-daughter day at the ballpark and Bellbrook vs. Dunbar '89 when I hit my one varsity HR.

Favorite all-time athlete: as a kid, an adult, Grant Hill

Favorite sports movies: Field of Dreams

Best sports road trip: My Saturday...Braves vs. Reds Sunday Night...Cooperstown Monday through Thursday morning...Jennifer sings the Anthem Thursday night at Fenway... Sox/White Sox triple play and cycle in the same game for only the second time in baseball history...Saturday night Clemens strikes out 9 through 7 but the bullpen blows it and the crowd is furious.

Best game I've ever seen live: Suns/Spurs Game 5 2007 Western Semis (the game w/o Amare & Boris). Hated the outcome but loved the experience.
