ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Connecticut and Kentucky couldn't have met in last year's championship game and few people gave them a chance to be in this year's.

Seventh-seeded Connecticut and eighth-seeded Kentucky meet Monday night in one of the unlikeliest NCAA championship games ever.
Yup. The highest combined seeding total ever for the big game: 15. No. 7 UConn and No. 8 Kentucky. Never have two teams seeded that low ever advanced to play each other in the final.

After an unprecedented men's final with seeds like this, we have an equally unprecedented women's final between UConn and Notre Dame. For the first time ever in either a men's or women's final, BOTH teams in the championship game are unbeaten. UConn is 39-0 and Notre Dame 37-0.

This is amazing!

Creed singer Scott Stapp says mutual love for Alabama football helped rapper T.I. save him from suicidehttp://bleacherreport.com/tb/d8Ctr?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=alabama-crimson-tide-football


Selam
These days, Stapp said, his only “meds” are running five miles a day and being surrounded by the love of his wife, three children, and God.

The 40-year-old rocker said he has resolved the conflicts that lingered from being raised in a strict fundamentalist Christian family led by a spiritually “abusive” stepfather.

He said his stepfather thought he was doing the right thing by imposing legalistic Christian standards. What he was missing, Stapp said, was the love St. Paul writes about in his letter to the Corinthians: “Love is patient, love is kind. … It is not easily angered.”
....
The primary way he shares his story is through his music, particularly his new solo album, “Proof of Life.”

I am guessing this is the last chance for Fleury... (supposing we have an adequate replacement option). I hope he comes up big though, regardless of how far the Pens go.

An arbitrary meditation on sports:

Sports reveal the human soul. They bring out the best and the worst in us. Sports are a microcosm of the world. The passion of the fans and the rivalry on the pitch reveal both horrific shame and poetic beauty.

Unlike war, there is redemption in athletic competition. One does not equate victory with killing. To compete is to acknowledge the humanity of your opponent. He is your rival, not your enemy. He is your physical, mental, and spiritual challenger; and although you may despise him, you nevertheless view him as your fellow man. And unlike warfare, rivals in sport often become friends over time.

The only intimacy greater than the blood, sweat, and tears shared by athletes vying for victory is the intimacy of the consummation of husband and wife.

Would humanity not be better served if conflicts were decided on fields of play rather than on fields of blood? To do away with sports is to do away with life.

Ok, this is getting ridiculous. After postponing the two games earlier this week they scheduled a double header today to make them up. There was a short rain delay during the first game today. And now they are in a second rain delay before the second game even starts.

MONTREAL -- Carey Price can relax -- his Labrador retrievers are back home.

The Montreal Canadiens goaltender's dogs Motty ("short for Mozart") and Duke got loose overnight. But, after word went out on Twitter, both were found and returned Monday morning.

So it was my birthday yesterday, and as it turns out, LA Clipper Chris Paul's birthday (Go Clippers!) and also Montreal Canadien Brendan Gallagher's birthday (Go HABS!). The Clips won for me on Monday and the Canadiens yesterday. Happy Birthday, us!

BOOM!!!



Damian Lillard, hired assassin. (Sorry, Houston Rockets fans.)

GO BLAZERS!!!

The Blazers are a joke. You have nothing but paper tigers in the West who don't know the fourth letter of the alphabet except San Antonio.

The finals will be SA and Miami. Miami in 5.

I remember when I was a teen and I had boxes and boxes of baseball cards. Do people (other than serious and rich collectors) still collect those? I guess someone must, I still see them in the store.

My grandfather had nearly every baseball card ever made, even the ones which came in cigarette packs. The pack of wolves that is my "family" devoured the money that enormous collection fetched at his estate for like pennies on the dollar.

Kinda looks as if the Blazers might be snakebit in their current series. Let's be glad this statement can't be taken literally after the visitor they had to have removed from their locker room before tonight's game: a baby rattlesnake. Shocked

I really hope the Steelers draft this year pans out.  I don't know why the felt the need to pick up an undersized RB.  Another CB would have been much more helpful.

Undecided  Always next year I guess.

I expect in the coming months that they will reveal that Crosby had an injury. Not only was his goal scoring terribly low, but his time on the ice was noticeably below average, and there were other signs (e.g. of him missing practices/games in season) that he was dealing with something but didn't want to tip other teams off.

Of course that is no excuse for getting ousted after being up 3-1... we stunk from top to bottom.

It will be interesting to see who will remain around till the start of next year. Talk is that coach Bylsma is almost definitely gone. I'd like to see him get one more chance, but then I usually do favor stability at coach over 'what have you done lately'. With Fleury it will probably depend on who else we'd have in goal. Critics always talk about how Fleury isn't an ultra-elite goaltender, but then it's not like the Pens would be able to pick up that kind of player anyway, short of getting lucky in a draft (or being willing to trade Malkin, which obviously they aren't going to do). With Letang, I don't know if the organization have taken their blinders off yet about him, that his upside potential doesn't excuse completely horrible play as years go by.
