I orgasm every time Michigan loses.

A long time coming:

For the first time since November 11, 2006, the Toronto Maple Leafs are playing the Montreal Canadiens when BOTH teams are above .500.

None of the three goalies in that game (Aubin, Huet, Aebischer), or the two coaches (Maurice or Carbonneau) are still in the NHL.

None of the Maple Leafs from that game are still with the team (but two of the Canadiens are now Leafs (Grabovski and Komisarek).

Another pro team dupes its home city politicians out of major cash: Charlotte council backs $144M for Panthers stadium.

I was watching a Big East battle between Louisville and Notre Dame but just couldn't take any more of Dick Vitale. He's terrible, he just doesn't understand the game.

I cannot believe that he will be doing some big final four games this year.

Maybe it's time for a "Ditch Dick" campaign.

I'm still watching. An hour and change later.

This game is killing me. Why can't it end?

Made me almost like Notre Dame.

Probably an instant classic. I guarantee they will edit Vitale's commentary before it's aired next.

They still kept Chris Berman around, so the odds are low...
