Curling Haiku
The skip with her stone
and the sweepers with their brooms
staring down the sheet

Sunday starts off with soccer, as so many Streak days do. This morning it's a jaunt back to Italy, where Genoa visits Napoli in Serie A action. Genoa gets the draw as well.

At 11:30 a.m., we're back up to Victoria for more women's curling. The Newfies will be facing host British Columbia, and the crowd will be raucous.

What's heavier than a soccer ball but lighter than a curling stone? That's right - ESPN brings you more bowling, this time from Colorado. It's the controversial "Plastic Ball" event where every competitor uses an identical bowling ball. Streakers can choose which semifinal will be the source of the final champion.

NBA - Boston Celtics at Phoenix Suns
The defending champions will be missing Kevin Garnett when they visit Phoenix to play the explosive Suns, who have averaged over 140 points since the All-Star break under new coach Alvin Gentry. Continuing that pace against the defense-minded Celtics will be a harder task.

Kyle Busch will try to finish off an unprecedented triple in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Fontana. The Streak pits Kyle against Jimmie Johnson in a finish-higher matchup.

We end our night back in Arizona for more basketball. This time, it's the college game, and a player points matchup between stars Chase Budinger of the Wildcats and crossstate rival James Harden of Arizona State. Early Streakers see this one going Harden's way.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers were headed for a second straight spectacular day until Oklahoma ran into a second-half buzzsaw named A.J. Abrams. Still, they ended the day above 50 percent for their third winning session in a row.
