- March Madness will be upon us soon, so I'll be making my uneducated college hoop picks. But here's a story I can certainly dig: American University has a player whose dad was in the legendary This Is Spinal Tap (and whose name isn't Shearer, Guest or McKean). The best (or worst, I suppose) part is none of his teammates have any clue how cool that is.
- Man, how stupid is NY Governor Eliot Spitzer? The dude was formerly New York's attorney general and a guy who was all about the high-profile busts. If anyone knew the political risks of going to a prostitute, you'd think it'd be him. And yet, he came out today and admitted he used a high-priced call girl service that was busted last week by the feds. Must be one of those "cry for help" deals.
- Ever since the so-called Winter Classic in Buffalo on New Year's Day, the NHL has been searching for the location of its next outdoor game. Chicago and Detroit have been rumored, and now Yankee Stadium is being mentioned as a possibility. The toughest part is getting Mother Nature to cooperate with some nice cold weather to keep the ice in good shape; Chicago and Detroit are probably better bets in that regard than NYC.
