Still can't figure out why they wanted to change the name of that team to the Wizards.

I wonder how little action it would take for TSN to do away with the insane amount of coverage they do for trade deadline day. Much ado about nothing so far.

In the "What Have You Done for Us Lately?" department, University of Denver has fired men's ice hockey coach George Gozdecky. This comes on the heels of Denver's 1st round loss to New Hampshire in the NCAA Northeast Regional playoff. Godzecky has coached Denver to a pair of national championships in the past 9 years, as well as 12 straight years of 20-win seasons. I guess the guy just can't cut it.

So you're saying he couldn't get them over the three championship hump, huh?

Just watched the Kevin Ware interview. Lots of character there, I'll be rooting for him when he returns next year.

He had really improved during the season. The Cardinals had trouble earlier in the season when Siva and Smith got in first half foul trouble. Later in the year Pitino didn't need to gamble as much with his starting guards because there was very little drop off going to Ware.

He'll be missed on the court this weekend.
