1. Tennessee is out of the NCAA championship with a ridiculous loss to Louisville yesterday. There goes my hopes of dominating the Sportsocracy contest. Damn brackets. I frickin’ hate brackets.
2. The Pirates’ Kuwata, who likely would not have made the roster, retired from baseball and was asked to pitch one final time for the Buccos of Suckitude before his retirement… he said no.
Neal Huntington even offered him a coaching job. Kuwata said no.
You see what’s happening here? If you can’t be part of the suck, you don’t want to have anything at all to do with the suck. You get as far away from the suck as you can. You do not stick around and coach the suck.
3. Rob Biertempfel from the Trib tells me that Byung-Yum! Kim took his cut from the team in stride:
BK didn’t exactly seem all broken up by the news. He was smiling as he packed up and left. Just as he got to the clubhouse door, he turned, gave the fellas a wave and said, “Good luck!”
You see what’s happening here? If you can’t be part of the suck …
You get the picture.
4. Sid’s back and he’s did something very cool. See the overhead puck flick at :42:
Also, Ruutu’s goal at 1:41? Brill.
