Not sure but he had a defender on his right, so his southpaw was his only shot, amazing!

why the official sponsor of pizza for the NFL makes national news should be the news.
what a joke that anyone is even reading this useless drivel on a business news feed, let alone national sports outlets like espn. The Easter bunny has been replaced by the state tree of Oklahoma for this Easter but they'll revisit the issue next year if the Easter bunny behaves itself for the rest of 2018.
blahhhhhhh

Why the break before the NCAA tourney selection? I don't recall them doing that before. Anything to do with the FBI investigation?

What break? Real conferences (like the ACC) haven't even had their tournaments yet.

Some conference tournament champs fill some of the slots, the sec tournament ends on selection sunday.

The Big 10 always did before. I guess they got me screwed up!

SHAQUEM GRIFFIN. Best story of the NFL combine. Playing with only 1 hand does 20 reps on the bench press and has the fastest time by a line backer since 2003. Kid really improved his draft stock

He’s an impressive athlete with a lot of heart. He’s like an athletic Rudy that’s missing a hand. When I first saw him show up in college I assumed he was basically a feel good story. Boy was I wrong. Dudes a player.

Women's college BB uses quarters instead of halves. U-Conn is the dominant team in the sport and has been for years now. Ever since the Big East imploded, their new conference has not given them much competition. Still, you would think that in the conference tournament, there should be some resistance, right?

In today's game, seeds 1 vs 4, let's just say Cincinnati had a tough time. They scored just 5 points in the first half, and all of those came in the first quarter. After 3 quarters, the score was 66 to 11. Things only improved slightly in quarter 4, as the final was 75 to 21. Sad.

Why cant the media just leave Odell alone?
They did the same thing to the Honey Badger.
Both are outstanding players, just leave it at that and find something else to complain about, please :|

USA's Men's Para Olympic Sled Hockey team wins third consecutive GOLD medal with OT win over Canada!!!!!!!!!! https://www.teamusa.org/US-Paralympics/ ... ympic-Gold
All Para Olympic athletes are amazing, shame so little press coverage with March madness and NFL free agency dominating sports reporting.

I'm pretty sure that my high school didn't have male cheerleaders, but I think most colleges do. And now the NFL as well (California, of course!):

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Culture/male- ... d=54063851

These two gentlemen talk about the lengthy audition process. Anyone who watches CMT's Making the Team (about the Dallas cheerleaders) would have known what to expect. Sad.

another ridiculous situation here in IL....

Postby mnymgr1 » Wed Apr 11, 2018

the White Sox baseball team plays in Guaranteed Rate Field, aka Comiskey Park a long time ago.
the state of Illinois is on the hook for quite a bit of money per game played there, paid directly to the team.
why the deal was made for such a horrible new stadium (I guess 15+ years ago...haha), no clue.
but the only reason I can think of that keeps the WS in Illinois is that money, otherwise they'd be hemorrhaging money like crazy as they have no where close of a fan base that the Cubs do.

Pretty awful turnout yesterday, granted it was 35 degrees here as well

(yes, I'm a cubs fan but really don't get into baseball much)
