March Madness resumes tonight with four games including a pair of #2 vs. #3 matchups in BYU vs. Florida and UConn taking on San Diego State. Duke takes on Arizona. Go 'Zona! Wisconsin takes on Butler in the other game. I've got Florida, San Diego State, Duke and Wisconsin winning tonight.
The Dallas Cowboys are among five NFL teams fined for having illegal contact with players in the "dead period" that has come out of the expiration of their labor agreement. Also believed to have been dinged are Miami, Cleveland and San Francisco. My guess is the remaining teams simply haven't been caught yet.
One week from the start of the MLB season, Victoria's Secret has launched a line of baseball shirts and undergarments. Sorry, Toronto Blue Jays, you don't exist. And the hits just keep on coming for the Jays when Ken Rosenthal and Kevin Kennedy preview the AL East but don't even mention the Jays.
Not sure how or why at this point, but Derek Jeter was the top selling jersey in baseball last season. You'd think anybody that was a Jeter fan already had one. Maybe they wanted the George Steinbrenner patch really, really badly? Rounding out the top five were - in order - Joe Mauer, Roy Halladay, Chase Utley and Cliff Lee.
Wake me up when the Barry Bonds trial is over. Blows my mind that the U.S. government is spending millions upon millions in this environment. They must have everything else taken care of.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he's not interested in cutting a cheque for $800 million to buy the New York Mets and not having his ass kissed to do it. Love the way he put it. Great thinking on Bud Selig's part looking for sheep to fall in line. The current Mets situation is soooooooo much better.
Terrible, terrible story on what Toronto Blue Jay reliever Chad Cordero and his family have gone through. If there's a Jay I wish well, it is Cordero.
New UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Johnny "Bones" Jones will appear tonight on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Well, not exactly Letterman, but a good news story for Jones and the UFC. Him riffing on the "lock up your kids" guy - Antoine Dodson - of web fame last year after busting a guy for breaking into a car before his fight in Jersey was awesome. Jones is a gem, not make guys in sports with a better personality.
Sara Jean Underwood was in a cake fight. Not sure if she won, but we did.
