I've made no secret about my love for the FSN show "Sport Science". I mean any show that can get someone to volunteer to get hit in the nuts by a tennis ball, "for science", is a winner in my book. Well, the show is coming back for a second season, and I don't know how they could top last year, but it looks like they may have. Not only do they pair Drew Brees against a real-life gunslinger (to see who has the quicker release), AND get Padraig Harrington to hit a tee shot ala Billy Madison (to see if a run up helps his distance), but they even got Stephon Marbury to do something that the NBA couldn't. Get him on the court wearing a Knicks jersey!
Man, I can't wait. The show airs every Sunday night at 9pm, and will debut on March 22nd. Oh and the first episode actually has MMA fight Houston Alexander taking a shot of adrenaline to see if it helps him punch harder. FSN sent me a copy of the show, and trust me, you don't want to miss it.
