The NCAA Tournament begins in earnest one week today. Once you get past the whole not-paying-the-players part, it's a lot of fun to watch. Some of us prefer the CIS Final 8; it's a little more pure.
The all-hockey, all-the-time routine gets a bit tedious in Canada. As one wag put it, "At least we've got hockey. And Scandinavia, Minnesota and nobody else are very impressed."
Terrell Owens is signed and the more accomplished veteran receiver out there, Marvin Harrison, is sitting by the phone. That's not right. So much for maintaining blog silence on Terrell Owens joining the Buffalo Bills. Once you've called someone T-Emo, your feelings are pretty obvious.
There will be a hundred tributes to Ottawa 67's coach Brian Kilrea, so it probably won't hurt to joke that it's time to go if he honestly believes the Kingston Frontenacs are a "good young team." Seriously, Killer is great.
This post is worth nothing, but this is worth noting:
- Ricky Rubio would look good in a Raptors uniform; perish the thought.
- Eight days until the release of I Love You, Man.
- Using Twitter to bash NHL beat writers is just making it more dated, faster. Down Goes Brown, by the way, has some good thoughts on beat writers.
- Hey, the alma mater earned an OFSAA volleyball medal yesterday. The Ernestown Eagles, coached by Vicki Ward, earned the ancient bronze medal at the Double-A provincials in Kenora (they lost in the semifinal to Ottawa's Samuel Genest, which eventually took the silver).
- Remember the name: Tyson Hinz. He was a meast for the St. Matthew's Tigers in their run to the gold medal at the Ontario Triple-A championship in Ottawa this week. It's the second gold in a row for an Ottawa school.
