Welp, today starts the historic 2021 Detroit Tigers season where they march straight to the World Series championship without ever losing a game

Also, it's that time of year to share this dandy Family Guy scene

I got an email out of the blue from my orthopedic doctor's office.

Asking me to like and follow them on Facebook and take part in a Dick's Sporting Goods raffle.

Yep, that's right. My bone man is in with Dick's. You must enter to win.

NoMich, that Family Guy clip is so true. So sad compared to my childhood when they were amazing. At least that's what people called them.

That daggum Roy Williams calls it a day at Carolina. 400 wins with Kansas and 400 wins with Carolina, nine Final Fours between the two of them, three national champs with Carolina. Just missed a fourth national championship when Villanova beat them at the buzzer in 2016.

If true, leave it to Roy, who previously tortured UNC before deciding to stay at Kansas, to make such an announcement on April 1.

He's going to keep this up until his nickname officially becomes Say It Ain't So.

Matt Doherty is available. Older, wiser, no buyout.

Time to go have an ice cold Co-Cola.
