Ok, my bad

So VU's coach is TIM Corbin. My bad. Whatever his first name is, it's about the CHAMPION Coach Corbin after their 12-inning semi-final win in the SEC Tourney!! Final is Sunday, and, of course, I'm working, but the live stat-o-rama or whaever they call it will be running non-stop. They'll play South Carolina, who beat Arkansas (the #1 seed) twice on the way to the final. Pitching and Defense wins championships, though, and no one in the SEC's better than the Dores -- VU wins by 4.

More props to VU!! Jovan Hayes and Justin Geisinger were named All-Americans this week by Athlon sports. All-SEC nods were also awarded to Erik Davis, Jay Cutler, Kwame Doster and Moses Osemwegie. This season may be the season the team gets some notice along with the players -- Year Three of Bobby Johnson should be a great one!

I'd also like to point out that Mark DeRosa has extended his hitting streak to eight games! That's only forty-eight games away from the record! Braves won 9-4 tonight, bringing them back to .500 (yes, again), still just 4.5 back, and in third place at last in front of the Mets again!

Indy 500 is tomorrow -- a strong tradition based in a city I'm about to move to. Apparently the town's all abuzz with race fever -- maybe that's why no one's responding to my resume....

Here's what I don't get -- they've apparently asked Jessica Simpson to sing the National Anthem. What?? Who's idea was this? And haven't they heard "Take My Breath Away?" That's a fairly simple song to sing, and she absolutely butchers it!! Why did they do this?? They don't need the notoriety -- it's got enough tradition with the milk and all, and this is a stunt they don't need ot pull. Oh, wait -- it's on ABC, home of the Nick and Jessica Comedy Hour. I have a bad feeling that the comedy Jessica's gonna succeed at will be on the track and not on stage.

I'd gloat on my predicting the West's Game 5, but apparently, everyone else did, too, so I'll say it now. Monday, T-Wolves by 8.

And Applebee's is now using a Toby Keith song spoof as their summer jingle. Thank God! This time they're choosing to ruin a song I already hate.

That's all I've got -- catch The Brak Show tomorrow night on adult swim!!
