FORT MYERS, Fla. — It’s almost six weeks into spring training, and already one member of the Red Sox has had surgery, pitchers are headed toward five innings at a clip, and my bracket is shredded beyond recognition. (No, I’m not bitter at all.)
That’s where I am this morning. My bracket is shredded but for North Carolina (Go Heels!) and it’s gonna rain on opening day at Fenway. So let’s look at this picture of the grounds crew on a perfect April Saturday two days before opening day.
This is also from the Globe.
And about the men’s championship game no matter what happens kids can admire Tyler Hansboough. He’s called the “player you love to hate” because of his agressive play but he stayed in school for four years and whether you are a North Carolina fan or a Michigan State fan you have to love that.
There will be two Hall of Famers watching tonights finals (no rainouts in basketball). This from the New York Times
Magic Johnson will be in attendance at Ford Field on Monday, pulling for Michigan State, which he led to a national title in 1979. Michael Jordan, he hit the game winning shot in North Carolina’s 1982 title-game victory, is expected to be in the crowd, too.
And in my one minute of fame, I was there in New Orleans when Carolina beat Georgetown on the last second errant pass by Brown and the shot by Jordan. It was a blur, but I believe that James Worthy was in there somehow. Great game and great result.
