I'm too lazy to make a banner that shows I beat all y'alls asses in the World Baseball Classis pick 'em game. And I beat the m-effin crap out of that m-effin Baseball Prospectus

I'm the co-champion! In yer face SpoFi!

The Indian Premier League returns tomorrow, April 8th.: Like cherry blossoms in Japan every spring, the arrival of IPL is eagerly awaited by many. The colours are more garish, the scene anything but peaceful. Administrators are averse to halting the cricketing treadmill and so, this year, the IPL starts just six days after the World T20. The players might want rest, but they cannot afford to ask for time off because millions are at stake. And so IPL 9 begins on Saturday in Mumbai.

March Madness 2016: Printable NCAA tournament bracket: Well, actually, the printable version of the bracket is here. The ACC has two #1 seeds this year, Carolina (who won the ACC tournament for the first time since 2008) and Virginia (who lost to Carolina in the ACC championship game). The other two #1s are Oregon and Kansas. I set up a bracket group here. Group name: SportsFilter. Password: 1SpoFi!

Cricket Star Kieran Powell Tosses His Bat and Picks Up a Smaller, Rounder One: Powell, a star batsman who has played internationally for the West Indies, has chucked that all aside, for now at least, in a long-shot gamble to become a professional baseball player. See also: (video warning) MLB Tonight: Cricket Conversions. Why would a star player from West Indies look to another sport? Windies cricket seems to be in a pretty sorry spot, financially speaking.

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

The current rule for away-from-the-play fouls applicable to the last two minutes of the fourth period (and last two minutes of any overtime) pursuant to which the fouled team is awarded one free throw and retains possession of the ball will be extended to the last two minutes of each period.

This is a pretty good rule, actually. Yes, I like it. Maybe that will cut down on the stoppage of play every two freakin' seconds.

I loved it. Make the NL wear those Padres uniforms and make the AL wear the '70s White Sox uniforms with the shorts.

Getting the score like I did for each round (total += total), is that like hitting for the cycle in baseball?

Fritsy: I did a CD swap at two different addresses.

Creator vs Exaggerator? Was this a race between 1980s thrash metal bands or something?

"Mr. Hockey", Gordie Howe, has passed away at age 88.

The dude played 80 freakin' games and scored 41 points in the NHL at the age of 51/52! At 50, I can barely make it up four flights of stairs at work.

Are any of the NBA Finals games going to be close?

Speaking of not being close, I guess the Stanley Cup Finals will be over tonight. The Sharks look completely gassed. Reminds of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals between Carolina and Pittsburgh. The previous series vs Boston took everything out of the Hurricanes and they met up with the young and hungry Penguins. Ugliness ensued.
