I thought I would switch away from the usual T Welter beatings and discussions of another one of those ho hum winning streaks by the Crew. That being said, here are a few interesting events occurring in the world of sports today:
1. I have to say that I have been extraordinarily entertained by the badger blogs of late with the whole Vander Blue situation. It is being reported that Mr. Blue (not Mr. Pink) will be holding a news conference this afternoon to address his future. IMO, if you're a Badger fan, this isn't good. Vander is one of the better recruits that Bo Ryan has ever gained a committment from and allegedly is on the verge of re-opening his recruitment, yet Bo "can't do no wrong" Ryan is busy coaching a USA amateur team and likely is no where near Madison, WI. Rumors have been swirling since he originally committed regarding Blue's continual interest in MU and how Jeronne Maymon has been trying to convince Vander of joining forces at Marquette. I for one don't see it happening. However, I would love it.....not just because MU would be adding more talent to the squad, but because of the anger that it would instill within the badger nation. How much animosity would be on display when Marquette plays at Madison in 3 years with Jeronne and Vander walking on the court together? That would be "Must See" television.
2. The NBA LOTTERY IS 2NIT!!!!! I know.....the NBA is quite lame.....especially as a Bucks fan. And since the Bucks are currently sitting in 11th, there is a slim to none chance that the Bucks move into the top 3. However, last year the Chicago Bulls jumped from 9th to No.1 overall so there is still hope. Regardless of where the Bucks fall, I hope that the white collars of the Milwaukee Bucks organization will start listening to me more often in regards to who they draft. The Draft is always a time for optimism as a fan (maybe not for a Bucks fan considering our horrendous Mike Sherman-like drafting failures over the years). So enjoy the lottery and pray for a miracle 'cuz the Bucks need one.
