O.J. Simpson Interview

Cleaning up the Mess...

Let's break out the mop and broom and clean up some of these stories floating around in sports...

I'm just saying...

...Jose Canseco is a RAT...a pile of scum. The fact that he won't release who "Max" is, just means he is holding out for a third book to make more money. He has been right on some people in the Mithcell Report, but so far he has no evidence on A-Rod.

...A-Rod should just deny, deny, deny, and deny...unless of course Canseco is telling the truth.

...Chris Webber should not make the Hall of the Fame.

...The San Francisco Giants are doing the right thing by stripping their entire stadium of Barry Bonds-related items.

...Michael Beasely will be the number 1 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.

...Chris Long will be the number 1 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

...Johan Santana will not win the NL Cy Young award.

...Brandon Webb will win the NL Cy Young award.

...Chris Paul should win the 2008 NBA MVP.

...Bobby Knight has been a likeable analyst on ESPN.

...MLB in Japan to open the season is an awful idea!

...Joba Chamberlain is overrated...already.

...The Rays will be a legitimate team this year, not a playoff team, but a 75 win team.

...Scott Kazmir/James Shields/Matt Garza will win more games combined than Josh Beckett/Dice-K/Clay Bucholz

...Miguel Cabrera will win the AL MVP

...The wild card will not come out of the AL East, it will come down to the Mariners and Indians.

...Patrick Roy...what!?

...the Mavericks will not make the playoffs.

...til next time


Due to a Spring Break hiatus and vacay to Acapulco Mexico. I missed out on the opportunity to blog about the 2008 NCAA Tourney! Selection Sunday and the first round of the tourney easily rivals Super Bowl Sunday for me. The reason being, basically because it is one thing that actually lives up to the hype, unlike most Super Bowls. Perhaps advertisers should pay to run their ads during the tournament instead? I digress...on to the predictions!

(7) West Virginia vs. (3) Xavier
WVU has already done some work by eliminating the Dukies, in which I congratulate the Mountaineers. HOWEVER, I am an A-10 Guy (aside from my obvious Maryland ACC Bias) and I don't see the X men losing this one. Where did WV come from this season? Joe Alexander is a good Big East player, but Xavier has a balanced attack and may be the quietest #3 seed in a while.
Advantage - Xavier

(4) Washington State vs. (1) North Carolina
I don't think much needs to be said about this contest. UNC will most likely win this game by about 12-14 points. To be honest, I don't know much about Washington State, another under the radar team, who comes from the Pac10. WSU has some nice players and will probably keep it close in the 1st half, but in the end Ellington, Lawson, and Hansborough carry the Heels to the next round.
Advantage - UNC

(3) Louisville vs. (2) Tennessee
This should be the game of the night. Louisville has really put together a run in the second half of the season and ever since Pitino rocked that white suit in a white out game, the Cards are looking legit. One of my other favorite college coaches, Bruce Pearl is on the other sideline with a run and gun style offense and the Volunteers. There is some injury concern with Tennessee guard Chris Lofton and will need some solid play from forwards Wayne Chism and Tyler Smith. The Cards will rely on center David Padgett, but in the end I'm gonna volunteer (HA HA HA)to go with Bruce Pearl.
Advantage - Tennessee

(12) Western Kentucky vs. (1) UCLA
UCLA. 'nuff Said. I do not see an upset brewing in this matchup. I will give the Hilltoppers credit, they do have one of the best mascots in all of sports with big red. Love, Collison and Westbrook will all be to much for the 'Toppers.
Advantage - UCLA

...til next time
