The ball is tipped...

Couple quick hitters over lunch ...
  • Check out the Badgers NCAA preview over on Deadspin. I tried to make it as basketball centric as possible while sticking with the Deadspin style of previews that were not as basketball-centric. Thanks to Matt and Tony K. for their input.
  • Among the tid-bits I sent in that were not included is the fact that the Badgers are 5-0 this season when Erin Andrews is in attendance and only 1-2 when Doris Burke is working the game in some capacity. Just wanted to point that out. (Again, thanks to Matt)
  • Don't forget to sign up for the Greater Chuckie Hacks Open NCAA bracket thingy if you have not yet done so. Follow the instruction here.
  • Rick Rickert update!: Rick played on Kirk Penney's team in the Australian National Basketball League, the New Zealand Breakers. Rick missed the latter part of the season with a bulging disc in his back but was leading the league in offensive rebounding when he went down with the injury. Pepe the King Prawn approves. In a great stoke of marketing, the team gave fans a chance to watch the playoff games with Rick. Good times!
  • Looking forward to the tournament as always. What better reason to take 2 PTO days in March! Lot of people are on the USC bandwagon and it appears as if Georgetown id getting less respect than the Badgers in the Midwest Bracket. I think Marquette has a great chance to make it to the second week. Stanford blows.
  • Shamrock shakes rock!
  • Be sure to check out the Big League Stew (link on the right). Good discussion of Angels clubhouse fantasy football and Chone Figgins love of the Georgia Bulldogs.
