Knicks Alive? Just a Flesh Wound — I don't mean to get carried away, I don't want to waste your time, I don't want to be the overenthusiastic friend, the one who is nagging you to respond to that text message from two weeks ago or buy the Taylor Swift record because it's really better than you think, but there something strange and mysterious I need to tell you, and it's real: The Knicks aren't eliminated from the NBA playoffs.

(A Little) Less Baseball Makes a Lot of Sense — Happens every year: It's Oscar night, maybe two hours in, and they're nowhere near Best Actor or Best Actress. Your increasingly embattled host is exhausted, eager for a tequila, trying to remember why he or she took this thankless job.

Pacquiao-Mayweather: It’s Real, Not Talk — Here it is-the big fight!-at long last, after years of skepticism, haggling, goading, taunting, self-inflicted snafus and exasperating near-misses. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will pull on the gloves and box-it feels weird to type that on the page-in person, in public, for real.

A handwritten response to Alex Rodriguez's handwritten letter

Will Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Happen? — You have to be (at least partly) a lunatic to believe it, you really do-to believe that this time, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are finally going to fight, ending the years of speculation and footsie and crazy-making coulda-woulda surrounding the biggest almost-event in sports.

Starry Hoop for a Sobbing Hoops Town — A big, fat All-Star Game is barreling down the lane into New York City, the basketball one, beginning Friday and running through what our local forecasters are claiming will be a frozen weekend. It's become trendy to say you aren't into All-Star Games, but who is everyone kidding? It's early February.

Writing Off the Knicks

Knicks Owner James Dolan to Fan: Root for the Nets — A longtime Knicks fan sent an email to team owner James Dolan on Jan. 23, criticizing Dolan's leadership. What 73-year-old Irving Bierman got back was a 115-word response in which Dolan suggested that Bierman is an alcoholic, and should root for the Nets because "the Knicks [don't] want" him.

25 More Super Bowl Party Rules — If the NFL can locate enough properly inflated footballs, the Seattle Seahawks will meet the New England Patriots Sunday in the Super Bowl. This year's edition-the sturdy-looking XLIX; try to say that 10 times fast-also includes a halftime singalong with Katy Perry, Finland's beloved industrial metal act. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m.

Super Bowl Week Is Already Crazy — I am not a scientist. I am not an expert in footballs. I am not an expert in football measurements. I am just telling you what I know. I would not say I am Mona Lisa Vito of the football world. Super Bowl XLIX is still days away, and already, it's my favorite Super Bowl ever.
