Wild Monday

1 – I was THIS close! Had Gordon Hayward’s 45-footer at the buzzer banked in instead of out, my prediction of a Butler 1-point win would have come true and we would have witnessed one of the most improbable championships ever. As it was, it was a tremendous game that capped off a scintillating tournament. Let’s hope the powers to be at the NCAA take note and leave the tournament alone!

2 – Mike Krzyzewski stand in second place along with Adolph Rupp for most national championships with 4, behind the legendary John Wooden. When you consider the era, the incredible parity, and the increased competition, Coach K may be the best ever. He has now won championships in three different decades – the only coach to accomplish this feat.

3 – I know it’s only one game, but Casey Kotchman and Chone Figgins look like pretty good deals for the Mariners. Figgins had 3 base on balls, 3 steals, and his speed forced ar errant throw by the third baseman to keep things alive in the 9th inning for the M’s. Kotchman, hitting third in the lineup, had 2 hits (robbed the umps of a third), 4 RBI’s, including the game winner, and was flawless in the field. He has a great stroke and reminds me a bit of John Olerud. I know, I know…161 games to go.  But, that’s why this game is so fun.

4 – It’s Masters week and Tiger held his press conference. The fans aren’t as wildly exuberant over him at least at the start. This will be an interesting week in Augusta. Why do I get a strange feeling that Tiger will be in the last group on Sunday?
