03/23 (Nearly Sweet) Quickie

My fantasy baseball draft is tomorrow afternoon and I couldn't be less prepared. "Median Draft Position" spreadsheet to the rescue. Any other advice you have for good broad-swath resources, let me know.

My 4-year-old's first-time enthusiasm for the NCAA Tournament and his bracket is one of the most enjoyable moments I've had as a parent. I'm dreading the inevitable interest in the Yankees.

After two days without college hoops (3 counting today), I'm ready for the Sweet 16. So ready. Thursday night -- with 4 legit toss-ups (perhaps not Duke-Zona, although Derrick Williams feels like the Wildcats' equalizer) -- will be terrific. Be sure to check in on Quickish throughout the night.

Carmelo: I think people are missing the larger point. Carmelo in New York was always about relevance and was never about championships. It doesn't matter if they are winning or losing because they were NEVER going to compete for a championship with Carmelo. The best they could hope for -- the desired outcome, actually -- was mattering. Wins were never part of it.

Damn, the Bulls are good. I'm not sure they beat the Lakers in the Finals, but they absolutely could beat the Celtics to win the East. Already.

College hoops jobs: If Mike Anderson would rather be at Arkansas enough to negotiate with them, he should just go there. He'll be happier -- the money's all basically equal anyway.

Video: If you haven't seen the Trebek/CFB mash-up yet, it's a must-see.
