Blown Calls, Instant Replay, and March Madness

March Madness is really starting to kick in here across the country, every team in the nation thinking they have a shot at the big dance.  Every team making their case.  Watched some good games recently including the hot topic of UCLA-Stanford during the week. This game was very exciting from beginning to end, I felt like Stanford was the better team for the majority of the game, that is until there was 4 minutes left and UCLA decided that they wanted to start playing some hoops.  The reason this game has been so controversial is because of a call made by a referee with time winding down. The game went to overtime, and UCLA outplayed Stanford the last 5 minutes.

I am so sick of people blaming the referees for Stanford losing.  Stanford lost, there is nothing you can do about it. GET OVER IT!!!  Lets talk about the turnovers, missed free throws, and the fact that you blew a 12 point lead with 4 minutes left to play. Nobody wants to talk about that. Lets talk about how the game was 0-0 with 5 minutes to play, and you got your tails whipped in overtime.  So what does Stanford do on Saturday? They are out to prove a point to the nation right? That they are the best team in the Pac-10, they are going to whip USC up and down the court? No, they going and get their tails whipped by the Trojans.  USC brought the magnum (condom joke), with them for this one, and made their case for why they belong as well.

Fans making  a case for instant replay in college basketball? Go run a fantasy league please.  Thats all I have to say about that.

RIP Eve Carson (North Carolina Student Body President)

This is a message to the guy who thinks he is cool for stealing this girls Debit card, you are a sicko, this girl had her whole life ahead of her, a bright future, and because you are some junkie who needed 20 bucks, you shot this girl and left her in the middle of the road. You will get whats coming to you.

Brett Favre (Destiny vs Reality)

Am I the only one catching this vibe, that after Super Bowl Sunday, we will see Brett Favre riding off into the sunset with another SB ring? Everyone loves Brett Favre, and by everyone I mean that all guys want to be him, and all girls want to be with him. He has that eight digit salary, he has the beautiful wife, and the wonderful family. Brett Favre says the perfect things, has struggled with some adversity (pills and drinking), but has turned out to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Packers vs Patriots is a tell of two tales. Brett Favre and Tom Brady, two future hall of famers, who have both taken different paths with two different lifestyles. I would love to see Brett Favre get that last Super Bowl ring before he hangs up the helmet. However, I think that reality will set in and you will see Tom Brady take home another ring to his mansion and supermodel girlfriend.

Andy Roddick-Biggest American Dissapointment

As a tennis fan, I enjoy following the sports, because it is as much about the country you represent as the individual awards. Except Roger Federer, who refuses to participate in Davis Cup. In the 1960's-1980's representing your country was the biggest thing to any athlete in any sport, now its more tennis than it is any other sport. However back to topic, Andy Roddick starts every Gland Slam with the hope and prayers of American tennis fans on his shoulders, but as soon as people actually start believing in him, he chokes. The difference between the Greats and the Goods, is consistency. You never seen Nadal or Federer lose to chumps like the guys Andy Roddick loses to. They are too consistent and too good. Andy Roddick, will probably fall out of the Top 15 by the end of the year, and I see a First Round loss in the French Open coming soon.
