In hilarious news, England just lost to the Dutch at cricket.

Boo on Connecticut for mucking up the works in the NCAA. I was fully looking forward to a spring bad blood renewal known as the SpoFi SEC - Big 10 Showdown: Hoops Edition.

At least Kentucky-Michigan was a most worthy undercard.

On the upside for England, this makes Australia look bad, too.

Appears UConn has found another coach who can draw blood from a stone. And to pull off that game against a well balanced Izzo coached squad yet.

At this point I reluctantly believe nobody can stop Kentucky. Too much talent, too much size, and for the first time in ages playing almost like a basketball team.

North American sport comparison, please!

Are we talking Michigan losing to Appalachian State?

Is it Sweden losing to Belarus?

I think I've won the NCAA Bracket Contest. The only players who can beat my current 74 score have the same remaining teams picked that I do.

Yep, it's over. Congrats, rcade.

Does anyone here know the Pucking Dekes owner from our fantasy hockey league? He's throwing a ridiculous temper tantrum on the message board there.

Some of the players identified themselves here.

Sounds like he is challenging the bench, drunk Bieksa style...

Maybe a AA minor league team beating the Yankees.

Change that - England at the moment are probably more like the Astros.

More like the Red Sox during that beer and chicken collapse a couple years ago.

If the beer and chicken Red Sox lost to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, during some kind of competition that was important to both teams, you'd be in the area.
