March Madness, Green Beer, and VEGAS!

March Madness, Green Beer, and VEGAS!

Today may be the greatest day of the year, a combination of St. Patties day and the start of March Madness. (Page2 article which also has a picture of Salma) To top all of that, I'm flying to Vegas (Page2: Jackpot Jay: Lucky or Good?) later for the weekend.  I picked up this Phillies hat for the day, complete with a shamrock on the back. 

CNN has an article out there in which they claim U.S. companies will lose roughly $900 million dollars to productivity being down due to employees watching March Madness games on their computer.  The article also guesses that roughly 3.5 billion dollars will be bet on the tournament.  Glen Macnow said on his show yesterday that Vegas sportsbooks will make roughly 90 million dollars on the tournament, 1/25,000th of which may be mine.

There are also some baseball hearings today on steroids.. Speaking of small testicles.. Boston is queer.

I'll be sure to give a full report of my Vegas jaunt when I return, but in the mean time feel free to click on one of the google ads to help me cut my losses.. they are the links in red.

In the 2014 NL Division Series, Harper hit two home runs off Str

NBA Finals: Warriors coach Steve Kerr not well yet, but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State's Steve Kerr expects to decide soon whether he will coach in the NBA Finals, saying Monday he's not yet ready but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1.

Kerr said: "As of right now I would not coach Thursday night. It's still up in the air." He said that by Game 1, he might make a decision on his status.

The reigning NBA Coach of the Year, still not feeling well after a May 5 procedure to repair a spinal fluid leak, addressed the media Monday when acting coach Mike Brown was out with the flu.

He joked: "I told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies."

Brown has been coaching the team since Game 3 of the first round at Portland, with Kerr assisting at practice and from the locker room before and during games.
