The Soothing Strains of Raf & McDonough

Lordy is it great to have college basketball back!  You know what else that means?  That's right kids - it's time to hear Sean McDonough call Bill Raftery a drunk.  They are announcing the St. John's-Boston College game in Boston tonight.

In the second half - a Red Storm...eh, fuck it, at Redman (!) barreled into the scorers' table and elbowed McDonough right in the melon, it was a big shot.  They kept showing the replay and Raf was laughing at him.  When they went to the next TV timeout, they showed the replay again and Raf signed off with this beauty:  "Look at you, you coward."

I have to give McDonough some equal love.  The BC crowd was booing the refs and he quipped: "Fans here in Boston getting testy, after all, it's been, what, a week since their last title?"

Yes, college hoops good! Can I just say that after watching North Carolina absolutely bitch slap Kentucky around for 20 minutes that they might be the best college team my eyes have ever witnessed. And that's with Hansbrough sitting on the bench! Thank god, because Dicky V doesn't need to stroke his jock any more than he already does.

On a side note, Bob Gibbons of espn.com basketball recruiting gave a short list of "sleeper" recruits that are flying under the radar. #1 on his list is Brett Roseboro of Quakertown PA. I found that to be quite interesting. It should be interesting to see if he climbs the recruiting rankings throughout the season as he is no longer under the radar.
