I'd vote for this kid as our next president. // I know it's early, but here's some shots of Christmas celebrations from around the world. // The art of science is so pretty to look at. // After reading this, I'll pretty much never be friending anyone I don't know on Facebook again. // This is incredibly heart-warming and inspiring ...
★ Lost amid all the Bernie Fine/Jim Boeheim talk -- Fab Melo may get to wipe the incident from Memorial Day off his record.
★ Did you catch the very scary moment for the Michigan State cheerleader last night?
★ If it's possible, I really liked Forde's column from Tuesday night -- and Sean Keeley's take even more.
★ An SB Nation column about how we shouldn't be making this all about Boeheim. But the rub is: Boeheim made it about Boeheim with his initial comments. And I don't think the media's gone full-on after Boeheim; Fine's been plenty targeted, too.
★ A compelling case from the editor of the Post-Standard on why the paper didn't hand over its recording of the Bobby Davis-Laurie Fine tape. But I remain staunchly against any act/inaction that potentially endangers children with child molesters for the sake of journalistic integrity and propriety.
★ So Alex Oriakhi's dad has challenged some bloggers to a fight after UConn's next home game.
★ Told you Monday night Scott Machado is one of the best point guards in the country. The latest data is backing that up big-time.
★ It's quite definite right now that the WCC is the best mid-major league. I want to wait another 10 days or so and see what the top of the league is doing/has done. There's potential for the league to flirt with fifth-best-in-basketball status.
★ Marshall Plumlee -- who you'll say, 'Seems like he's been at Duke for 10 years -- when he's still on the team in 2016, will redshirt this season.
★ This kind of thing will become more and more popular to tweet out, methinks.
★ Neat photo from last night's UNC-Wisconsin game.
★ More on how Creighton came back and beat San Diego State. That's just a terrific win, guys and girls.
★ Parrish says UNC needed that win heading into the Kentucky game. I suppose yes. Still think UNC loses decidedly at UK.
► Warning: a couple curses in this video, but this is just too awesome that I can't not post it. "It's done. That cake is DONE." And this is brand new -- it has an anti-Jerry Sandusky line and tributes Patrice O'Neal at the end.
♬ If you can't get down with Herbie Hancock, you can't get down with me. Beat comes in at the one-minute mark. Love the climbing bassline and how he makes a song sound like a rainforest.
