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.

rcade's approval numbers are already super low so there's no reason to start a sham House investigation on him.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Speaking as a fan of a Southern team, what difference does it make? They've been playing NHL games mainly indoors for 90 now, so what's the big deal of where the franchise is located?

Hockey fans in so-called traditional markets can be so weird about where people are allowed to play the game. Why do they have this litmus test of where the sport can be played? It's like they don't want the sport to expand and be played by kids, no matter where they are. Thanks to the presence of an NHL team, the Triangle area of North Carolina has something like six regular ice rinks, a megacomplex of multiple ice rinks, and another megacomplex on the way. Still, there's hardly any available free skate time in any of those places because of all of the youth leagues and adult leagues.

I grew up in the northern part of Michigan's lower peninsula and growing up, no one gave a shit about hockey. I think the only place it was played was in Traverse City. This was in the days before cable TV, so there were no Red Wings games on TV or even the radio and no one played pond hockey. It was a rich person's sport that was played in Traverse and the small towns near there where people could make it to the rink on a snowy Saturday. Now, thanks to cable TV and the Red Wings being good, everyone up there is a hockey fan.

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