Quest for the cup begins tonight

After 1230 games over 195 days, the “second season” of the NHL begins tonight as the playoffs get underway. There may be nothing in pro sports as compelling as the Stanley Cup tournament. Here is a great video of the season’s best moments to kick-off the occasion.

Tickle fight!

He seems to be a genuinely good guy and family man, humble and self-effacing. And a tremendous golfer. We wish more elite athletes were like Bubba Watson. Congratulations on winning your second Masters!

The L.A. Times’ Chris Erskine has done it again. This humorous and entertaining article about the baseball team he coaches encapsulates what youth sports are supposed to be about.

This is how you return a wallet

A person found a 17 year-old Marlin’s fan’s wallet at a baseball game and returned it along with a note and surprise. Awesome move.

We called it

Prior to this year’s NCAA Tournament we went out on a limb and predicted that this year would be one of the most entertaining, upset-laden tournaments in history with more high seeds advancing than ever before. Last night’s 7 vs. 8 National Championship game was the highest combined seed (15) ever. It was a great tournament and, as always, we’re sad to see college basketball go. Congratulations to the UCONN Huskies!
