Caught about 10 minutes of the Duke Kentucky game last night. When I turned it on Zion Williamson was putting on a show I'd never seen by a college freshman before.

And then RJ Barrett entered the game and took it a level further ...

With the talent Duke has paired with the lack of a college team with any serious veteran lineup I could see Duke going undefeated. Really, the only team that appears it could beat Duke is themselves.

I was kind of excited to watch the 76ers/ Pacers game with Doris Burke and Mark Jones. And then they and Lisa Salters just spent 2 minutes singing the praises of Chick-Fil-A. Save your ads for the timeouts and spare me your faux enthusiasm.

I was walking past a TV at the airport. I heard one of the announcers say: "The blue devils are taking it to the house!"

I thought they were broadcasting the Duke game. I looked up at the screen. It was Fox News covering the midterms.
