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!
Banner layout by dusted, football image found on the Web by jerseygirl, and gussied up bit by me.

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.

Because of that gas mask smoking device, I figured he was trying out for a new Judd Apatow movie or something.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

I'm not sure how the Twins/Nats game is crazier than the Pirates(of course! who else could've been involved in this?)/Diamondbacks game. I mean, that's pretty crazy set of instances in the Diamondbacks game.

The 2016 Pirates need a nickname pretty badly. The WTFs. The Is-This-Even-Baseball?. The What-Nexts?.

Wow, that's really cool, but I guess not if you're a Rockies fan.

And of course it would be the same Pirates/Padres series as the other bit o' bizarness.

Even without the yelling of the slur from the penalty box, he was being outrageously disrespectful of the on-ice officials by yelling at them and giving them a double-barrelled bird while still on the ice. I know it's bad form to eject someone from a playoff game, but come on man, how can let this player show you up like this on the friggin' ice? Then you throw in the homophobic slur? Yeah, I'm with Ufez on this; the dude should be gone.

NBA Approves Advertising on Uniforms

I'm actually OK with the advertisement as seen in the image in the linked article. The frustrating thing with soccer uniforms is that it's the Herbalifes vs the Fly Emirates. The IPL uniforms are kind of the same situation, but at least the team logos are large enough to read.
