Congrats on the NBA Draft
Last night in somewhere, New Jersey, the NBA held the 2012 amateur draft. Well, not really amateur, because there are always some weird euro pros in there, but mostly amateur. Kentucky had six guys drafted, four in the first round. Anthony Davis went first to New Orleans, as expected, and he’ll be awesome even if Chris Paul isn’t there anymore. A decent PG would be nice, though....

We're talkin' about Playoffs.
Not for very long, mind you. Reports are ubiquitous today that the BCS is dead and college football’s champion will be determined via a four team playoff. Let’s not pretend this isn’t still bullshit, because it is. Boise State is still never going to see that four team playoff, even if they beat the entire army of the People’s Republic of China, and people will still be...
Every now and then I have a day that I spend way more time messing around on Twitter or Tumblr than I should.

NBA Finals Thoughts
I’m cheering for Oklahoma City in the Finals. I have no real reason for this, other than I just like the Thunder’s players better than the Heat. It’s not like I actually know any of these people, of course. I just feel like I’d have a better time hanging out with the Thunder than I would the Heat. That’s basically it. There’s probably some “good vs....

The Belmont Stakes are Coming
You know, it’s kind of odd that no one’s really talking about tomorrow’s big race. You remember the Belmont Stakes, don’t you? Third leg of the Triple Crown? Yes, the Triple Crown actually has three legs, like Milton Berle. Tri is the Greek prefix meaning three. I suppose I can understand why you forgot about it, being that it’s been nearly forty years since someone...
