UCLA does its thang

without any Pac Ten ref help! Pac Ten Champs. Go Bruins! I predict they take it all in the Big Dance.

Oh, and By. The. Way. Anyone notice how Tiger Woods raised himself from the dead yesterday? Geesh.

Update: Shut up! Tiger wins it on the last hole with a 21 foot birdie while not having made a putt over 18' 10" all week. He was so excited by his own god-like prowess, he threw his hat, fist pumped both arms and yelled like we were in 2001.

Tiger is now tied with Hogan for career wins at 64, has won five in a row and 9 of the last ten, four in a row in 2008 and hasn't lost a tourney in six months. Two days ago, the sports writers thought this tournament would be the stopping point of his incredible streak. Tiger begged to differ.

It is just such a treat to be alive at this time in history and to watch him play. I grew up on Johnny Miller. It was nothing like this.

Michigan State did it's thang too... namely, find a way to lose in the Big Ten tournament.

They had a big lead in the second half against Wisconsin but their entire front three fouled out with about five minutes left in the game and they wound up losing to the Badgers by two points.

So that means no Big Ten titles for the collegiate career of Drew Neitzel (who we did see play a few times... he was HUGE news around here in his HS days, he won the Michigan "Mr. Basketball" award and took WPHS to the state finals his senior year, but they lost.)

So you say the Bruins are good, huh? I'll have to keep that in mind when I make my picks later this week...
