This makes me happy

Every since the North Carolina lost to Georgetown in the East Regional final on Sunday I have been looking for something to cheer me up and I final found it. Check out all of the great Sports Illustrated covers the UNC have been on over the years

Sam and Mike: Where their two any better

You can never forget the Greatest College Basketball coach of all time.

Seth Davis and the Crew must have know something about the 2004-2005 season

Hey there were right, that team was not that bad only four lottery picks.

Hey Georgetown is a good academic school

With all of the talk of the great of the return of the Georgetown basketball program to the national stage, one thing that is being over looked. The stellar academic record of John Thompson III. A couple of years ago Thompson recruited a kid with a grade point average less than mine in college.

I want to invoke Endy in the Outfield's friends Carolina Panther theory. Last year, it came out that several Carolina Panthers were using steroids when they beat the Eagles in the NFC Championship game. Endy friends said the NFC championship, should be with the Eagles. Now I think that North Carolina should be sent the Final Four instead of the Hoyas. Hey there is still time.

Chelski is the target, not global warming

So Sir Alex has a couple of rivals this year. The first is the Russian oil empire of Chelski and the other is global warming. SAF is scheduled to meet with inventor of the internet Al Gore about the issue of global warming. Right now I think that SAF should be spending more time trying to figure out how to win the league, the FA Cup, and the Champions League.

By Endy in the Outfield

How sweet it is in New York City. One week ago everything seemed normal in the city, the Mets had two soon-to-be AARP members on the front end of their rotation and roughly 78 others competing for the last rotation spot. While the Yankees rotation seemed pretty solid with Chien Meng Wang set to be the opening day starter and Carl Pavano staying out of trouble. How fast things can change in New York. With Wang straining his hammy, Andy Pettitte's questionable availability, and Kei Igawa being Japanese it looks as though, GASP!, Carl Pavano will be the opening day starter. Yes that Carl Pavano. The Carl Pavano whom Yankee fans trust and adore. The four year $40 million pitcher who since they signed him has been on the DL with an injured right shoulder, bruised buttocks, and two broken ribs that were suffered in a car crash that he failed to tell his bosses about for two weeks following the accident (hey at least he told them on the same day they were about to take him off the DL for the bruised buttocks). Yes Yankee fans Carl Pavano will be your opening day starter. Oh and by the way it seems like the Amazin's found that fifth starter in 23 year old Mike Pelfrey who's posted a 2.84 ERA in Spring training. Suck on that Yankee fans.

We're starting to look like a soccer playing country

So we can not get out of the group stages at the World Cup, but now we're starting to really look like we can play. On Sunday the United States Men National team introduced their new jersey in a international friendly against Ecuador and boy is it great. The new jersey is blue and white pin striping. It already ranks just beind the classic orange Dutch jersey for the best jerey in international soccer.
I'm glad to see that Landy Cakes can score a hat trick against a team that does not matter. Did anyone see him during the World Cup, I heard he was playing for the United States.

Ric Flair = Final Four

Ric Flair is the king of bleeding , king of the mic and now the king of motivation. To get the Florida Gators ready for their Regional Final against Oregon, Billy Donovan called in the former 15 time world heavyweight champion Flair to motivate his team. After a bunch of "WOOOs'', "To be that man, you've got to beat the man", and "I'm a limousine-riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheeling-dealing son of a gun, who's kissed all the girls and made them cry." It all appeared to have worked as the Gators beat Oregon to make it to back to back Final Fours.

I guess Roy Williams should have called in Sting to get his team motivated for their Regional Final against Georgetown, maybe the results would have been different.
