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.
