Billionaire Athlete

Rich athletes have reached a new plateau. Matt White is baseball's first billionaire. What, his stats don't impress you? Check out his story. Nice luck, Matt.

Duke and Maryland square off tonight. Who thought that the Fighting Turtles would be our best win? Back in December, the Alabama game sure seemed more impressive. Now, the Terrapins are 22-7, have beaten three ranked opponents and are set to sweep their season series with Duke. A win by them on "ACC Wednesday" would really help us seed-wise.

A&M/Texas on the deuce at 9 is another intriguing game. Should be fun for those with Hoops ADD to switch between matchups. Gig'em Aggies.

Another thought: if ND wins its first round NCAA matchup, a shot for the Sweet 16 could be on the line on St. Patrick's Day, much to the chagrin of NDSP.

That's about it for today, we'll get into the Rutgers matchup more as Saturday approaches. A week between games is far too long.

The ND hockey team could also be playing for the ccha championship on the 17th. Could be a great day for the Irish. "Drink like a champion" indeed.
