What? no Yankee Red Sox thread?: The Sox and Yanks played another classic game tonight. The Yanks won in an extra inning struggle that left the Sox deflated. Is the Sportsguy right, is there something wrong with the Red Sox? Oh yeah, Jeter made a sick play diving into the stands.

I was wrong.: The sox got some clutch hitting and the Yanks bullpen blew it, oh well, on to game 7, and it looks like it'll be a great game.

Oh yeah they're playing a few games too. This one is short, and sweet folks, here's the top 25 results from the past week, and after looking over the final four in the NIT, and looking over the Maui field who do you thinks coming out on top?

Will The North Carolina Mens B-Ball Team Get Better?: UNC kicks off their season Monday night when Penn State comes to town for a first round game in the preseason NIT. Matt Doherty has his hands full after a tough off season, there were rumors of layers leaving, and there was Dean Smith's revelation that he wanted Rick Majerous to replace him when he retired. BTW Matt did a fine job recruiting, and they're still UNC. The preseason NIT looks like it's going to be fun, so let the predictions fly, who do you think is winning this thing?

College Basketball Tips Off Tonight: The Jimmy V Coaches for Cancer Classic tips off the college basketball season tonight, but before the games start who do you think is the best team, Oklahoma, Arizona, Pitt, or Kansas? Or do you know something the experts don't. Who's the best player? Luke Walton(his father annoys me), Hollis Price, or David West? Let's not forget the women, and low, and behold UConn is not number one, "Geno where have you failed", sorry I grew up in CT, and we didn't have much in the way of sports(f##king Whalers), but back to the ladies, who do you love? Please nobody say Natalie Portman, focus gentlemen, who is the best lady in the land? One last question, with some of the best talent jumping straight to the pros is college b-ball in trouble, or does it make it a better, more fun game to watch? A couple of things, I went with ESPN for most of the links because they are the best at covering college b-ball, and I'm no Lupica so be gentle.

Vladimer Guerrero?: This article from ESPN magazine helps the sports fan get to know one of the best players in the game nobody knows. I've been to a few Expos games, and Guerrero is as much fun to watch as Ichiro, but he's stuck in Canada so nobody gets to see him. Rumor has it that Yankee GM Brian Cashman calls the Expos once a week to find out if he's available, and when Guerrero becomes a free agent Steinbrenner is going to do anything he has to do to sign him.

Look Out For Uconn.: Uconn has been dissed all year by the pollsters, but after they win the Big East Tourney, and get a number two ranking in the tourney, no one will be ignoring them. Uconns RPI ranking is 11, and they were not ranked for most of the season. If you are looking for a bandwagon to jump on folks there is plenty of room on the Uconn express.
