I know you guys think I say this every week, but for what these high risers put me through it’s definitely worth repeating: This has been the toughest season for picking “Poster of the Week” winners. I mean you guys are really out here catching defenders slipping.

Tonight we’ve got the Cancer Research Classic going on and I already know it’s going to be bananas.

Whoever wins will certainly earn the “W.”

As always, I’ll be watching.
