I know I’ve written way too much about basketball (But not really) this week so I’ll try to keep the basketball talk to a minimum. Besides the Fab 5, we have a major crisis in Japan, and every time I go outside I come back
yellow more yellow than I originally was. I’ve only got nine things this week so this shouldn’t take much of your time.
- Graduation rates and majors are always big topics when big time college sports are involved. Some coaches seem to care and some like Bob Huggins could give a damn if his players graduate. Here’s a list of the most popular majors and course studies for college basketball players.
- Why is the world waiting for the U.S. to enforce a no-fly zone in Libya? I’m pretty sure countries in the Arab League have air forces capable of doing so. Hell we probably paid for their air forces.
- I’m going to be honest with everyone: I actually enjoyed the MacGruber movie a little too much. (And the guy who plays the Russian Billionaire from the Direct TV commercials was in it too.) It could actually join Black Dynamite, Pootie Tang, and Joe Dirt on my list of brilliantly stupid movies that I love.
- Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson compared the NFL’s current labor strife to slavery. Pittsburgh Steelers Rashard Mendenhall agreed with AP. This proves a few things: 1. They stupid 2. These two are proof that the NFL does in fact have a head injury problem 3. Somewhere, there are a few high school history teachers that need to have their performance evaluations retroactively changed. These two may be the two richest slaves in the history of slave.
- On a side note I have to admit that I am also a slave—to the rhythm but a slave none the less.
- I think all of my March Madness Tournament brackets are screwed already. For once in my life Clemson actually took an “L” when I needed them to.
- After watching the events in Japan over the last week I can now say that all things nuclear, excluding my microwave, scares me. And I mean All things!
- This month is Women’s History month. Some of you may know that many of my favorite fictional protagonists are women. Here are a few real life black female heroes. Mary Fields (Number two) looks gangster as hell.
- I promise. This is the last thing about Grant Hill and Jalen Rose. Michael Wilbon of ESPN puts a lot of things about the two into perspective.
Anyway I hope everyone has a good weekend. Stay out of the street and avoid the pollen.
Vaya con Dios.
