Live Blog: The Inevitable Happens

Well, that happened. So this must.

Left-click to open; it’s the ESPN Podcenter link. Live blog is a pop-up.

I basically ended up transcribing it. I’ve extracted some excerpts here.

Read on for Simmons and Reilly on Kobe, Simmons and Reilly on golf (Reilly’s not going to the Masters), Simmons and Reilly on blogs (Reilly says, “holding down couch springs in his mother’s basement”; Simmons refers to 9/11), Simmons and Reilly on beat writers, Simmons and Reilly on ESPN, and much, much more.

Live Blog: Some Gators Play Lions, Some Gators Play Lambs

Tonight, the UF women’s basketball team faces a team some are calling the best to ever play women’s college basketball. And, what’s more, the Gators have to play the UConn Huskies in Storrs, Connecticut. Can they avoid being more than lambs led to slaughter?

After that game, their Y-chromosomed counterparts will take the floor in Gainesville and play Penn State for the right to advance to their fourth straight Final Four. (What? Even though it’s the NIT, it’s still a Final Four, right?) Will the Gators continue their hot postseason shooting, or will Stanley Pringle and the Nittany Lions spurt past them?

I have no idea. But I’ll be live blogging as I find out. Join me, won’t you?

LSUFreek is a genius for that image. (Here’s two more.) Orson debuted EDSBS Jeopardy. Basically, EDSBS won today, and we should all go home. (EDSBS)

Previewing the Premiership’s final weeks. Man U is still looking unassailable. (Avoiding the Drop)

The Florida Marlins are getting a new stadium and a new name in 2012. Or, at least, they might, if they avoid the six-year World Series-to-fire sale cycle this year. You can imagine Hanley Ramirez as Derek Jeter’s successor, right? (AP)

Read Leitch’s weekly column at Deadspin. He’s still one of the best writers on sports working, and this is a fun meta-column. (Deadspin) Continue reading

That, up there, is the first screenshot of Madden NFL 10. It looks delicious. (Peter Moore Blog)

In possibly the most stunning upset in the history of the NCAA Women’s Tournament, Tennessee falls to Ball State in the first round, marking the first time the Lady Vols have ever missed the second round. The reaction on Rocky Top is quite rational, though. (Rocky Top Talk)
