From The Desk Of… “Working Hard… On Making YouTube Videos”

And the Notre Dame Basketball team loses again, finally putting an end to a dismal season that was once spewing with utmost optimism. Well, let me correct myself. The NIT still remains, which could prove to be the ultimate display of (sub) mediocrity.

Anyway, in response to Mike Hatke’s request, I have made a special video commemorating the accomplishments of the season. Enjoy.

Can you believe it? The season summed up in about 8 seconds by a 4 second sound clip and a picture which had become a regular occurence this season.

At least we’ll have a Hansbrough next season.

I think I’ve just witnessed some EPIC upsets in sports history… at least in international baseball history. The Netherlands baseball team, yes, baseball, defeated the heavily favored Dominican Republic in the pool’s second elimination game. The DR’s two losses? Both against Holland. It had been pointed out that the MLB players on the DR make a combined 80+ M dollars.

The Netherlands? Their two players currently make 0 dollars- just to add to how bloated the DR’s roster was in comparison to the Dutch.

On the hardwood:

Cleveland State is going dancing. They just upset #17 Butler for the Horizon League Championship, giving them the automatic bid for the NCAA tournament. This is why playoffs are wonderful and should be instituted for a certain college sport. But I digress. Anyway, I’m sure Butler will be in the mix somewhere on Selection Sunday!

On a similar note, Notre Dame managed to beat Rutgers to advance to the second round in the Big East Tournament. They’ll meet West Virginia tomorrow, which is in theory, a do-able game. But with the Irish team that materialized this year, you just aren’t going to know what will happen. Let’s hope for the best. We need a deep run to at least the championship game (and perhaps even winning it) in order to make the dance ourselves. Highly unlikely.

Let’s go hockey team!
