For some of us from the old school, its hard not to like Tim Tebow. He’s everything you’d want a young man to be. Polite, humble, bible-quoting and hungry. Oh and I should add – he claims to still be a virgin. Who admits that? Tim Tebow does. The Tim Tebow story is so pure, so sappy, it can’t possibly be true, right?

Pittsburg Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger may have escaped prosecution, but he should not elude a suspension and public scorn.

Roethlisberger has never made clear exactly what happened the night he apparently took advantage of an intoxicated woman, who may have barely consented to have sex with him – if she consented at all.

On Wednesday, Martina once again told it like it was. She announced she has breast cancer. She also owned up to not having had a breast examine for nearly four years, which had she said had she done so, she might have caught her cancer earlier. As usual she took responsibility for her actions and her words.

The game played out like the hollywood script it was meant to emulate. Monday Night’s dramatic championship game ended with Duke edging Butler 61-59. But that was only the score. It was not the full story. Duke’s 4th national championship was earned the hard way. Neither team ever led by more than six points. It was back and forth all night. Tight defense, missed shots. Clutch baskets. Mistakes. There was suspense throughout.

Butler basketball is the equivalent of Boise State football. The two are extremely successful “mid-major” schools which have fought years for respect. The difference though is that unlike Boise State’s football team, on Monday night Butler gets a chance to prove its worthiness in the championship game. Even better, Butler gets to play it at home in Indianapolis.

have at times been pretty critical of women’s basketball, particularly this year with the University of Connecticut’s mind-numbingly boring winning streak of 76 straight. But be assured, there is at least one UConn game that I am looking forward to watching.

I want to see how Baylor University’s Brittney Griner, matches up against the powerhouse Lady Huskies this Sunday night in the women’s Final Four.

Will the long-armed 6’8“ Griner be able to block the shots of UConn’s All-American tandem of Tina Charles and Maya Moore? Can she smackdown college basketball’s best women’s team, or will she be intimidated or frustrated?
