Bitter...Table for One

OMG, would Plushenko just go away already. You have had your 15 minutes of fame, take your sour face, hook nose and bitter nasty attitude and slink into oblivion.

The judges made their decision, it was an international panel of judges. Here in the US we congratulate the winner and move on. Apparently, you have not learned that lesson yet in Russia.

The results were not rigged...no you did not win a Platinum medal...you just proved yourself to be a classless loser. Later in life you are sure to look back on this whole incident very embarrased about your behavior.

Crazy Things a Happenin in the Big Ten

If you have every played late in a poker tournament when the blinds are very large in comparison to the stack sizes of the players, you know that fortunes change quickly. Everyone has to push all in with any good cards and stacks of chips move quickly around the table from player to player.

Well that gives you a good sense for the Big Ten over the past 2 weeks. Fortunes are changing wildly as teams battle in this ultra-competitive league -- I still say the best hoops conference top to bottom this year.

Here is a nice little summary by Parrish at CBS summarizing the past two weeks.
