I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

He has always been one of my faves. He has played 3 phenomenal halves. No more room for man crushes however, as I already have them on Bernard, O'Mara, & Gates. However, I want to make it clear that it is different than the one Mman has for Newman and Frank Constanza. That's a whooooole different kind of man crush; not that there's anything wrong with it.

Xavier is putting on a clinic vs. FSU.

how satisfying would it be for Xavier to go through Sean Miller and Bob Huggins to make their first Final 4!

Call me crazy, but even though I think AZ is a better team than FSU, I thought X matched up better with AZ than FSU. AZ doesn't have a prototypical pg. They have a 5'9" kid who seems to be a decent player, but does not have the physicality to stay with Goodin. They actually have a pg by committee system. They have a skilled 7 footer, but he can be pushed around. They have other skilled bigs, as well as very good wings, but X is playing at a different level now.

St. Marys led for much of the game yesterday, and were within 2 buckets when a Gael was pushed out of bounds, but was called for the foul. I hate blaming losses on officials and don't believe that one call cost them the game, but it was a back breaker. X is every bit as good as St.Marys. If X gets past Zona and the Zags, AZ will be headed to Zona with son, brother, and nephew in tow.
