Matt's holiday wishlist: Sports fan style

Flipping the calendar to December means the holidays are just around the corner. With the big guy checking his list once or twice, here's what he could grant me:

1) Vikings Super Bowl Victory - It will be a long time before the stars align for the purple and gold again. Brett Favre is having an MVP-caliber season and should be rewarded for his efforts.

2) Milwaukee Bucks Playoff Birth - Michael Redd is a shadow of his old self, but rookie point guard Brandon Jennings is living up to his hype. As long as front man Andrew Bogut can stay healthy, the Bucks have a shot in the weak Eastern Conference.

3) Chris Bosh to the Detroit Pistons (Free Agency 2010) - Bosh is a talented front-court man who would fit well with the Pistons' offense. He would be a good compliment to whoever Detroit decides to put at center, as Bosh would provide enough scoring punch for the both of them.

4) Keep Curtis Granderson a Detroit Tiger - He's MY Tiger, and I would like him to remain as such. The Tigers should hold onto him and let the contracts of Carlos Guillen, Jeremy Bonderman and Nate Robertson come of the books after this upcoming season.

5) Michigan State Spartans NCAA Basketball National Championship - They got to the finals last year and were just happy to be there against a far superior North Carolina team. An early loss to Florida doesn't help much for the confidence, but tonight's rematch against the Tarheels should say a lot about how the season will go.

Since it's the holiday season, the sports gods should be in the mood for giving.

Minus number four, I don't believe I'm asking for too much. Am I?

After their performance against UNC, I think #5 is pushing it a little. I'll give you #2 for sure, Jennings is a phenom and looking like a lock for rookie of the year thus far. Then dare I say #1 really has a chance?

Adding a #6 to the list:
The Lions finish with more than 2 wins. (Probably pushing it even more than a State NCAA championship).
