Good to be back. Had a bad week. I was kicked out of Iraq for giving away the location of the Bowl Coalition.
NCAA REACHES CLIMAX
Surprising week in college basketball. Marquette was routed, Texas was upset and Matt Doherty was eliminated.
Doherty's been gone a week, and already he's received an offer from Georgia—to teach Jim Harrick Jr.'s 8 a.m. class.
Doherty may have seen things coming last fall. The Tar Heels' slogan was "Wait till the year after next!"
Michigan State students caused $40,000 worth of damage after the Spartans were ousted by Texas in the Elite Eight. According to Big Ten bylaws, you're not allowed to overturn cars and start fires unless you win a national title.
RED SOX AGAIN HAVE TOP TICKET PRICE IN MAJORS
The average is $42.34. Coincidentally, 4234 is when experts predict the Sox will win their next World Series.
Derek Jeter may be lost to the Yankees for only six weeks with a dislocated shoulder, not two to four months as originally thought. But George Steinbrenner is still furious. Especially since he found out that Jeter's shoulder went out at night.
The Yankees say Jeter may avoid surgery and be treated "conservatively." Treated conservatively. What does that mean? He has to see Trent Lott's orthopedist?
Jeter has been replaced by 25-year-old Erick Almonte. If that name sounds familiar, he's Danny Almonte's son...from his first marriage.
San Diego has an interesting catchphrase this year. "Padres baseball: Deal with it."
