One of my best friends Paris McGee from Ohio State (the kid from OSU that did Laurie and Simone’s floor routine x)  gave a little nod to *our* queen Khorkina since it was her birthday doing one of her signiture “quick turn” salutes after nailing his DTY. Again just wanted to promote my friends.

And I will fight you if you clock him on this. Ya’ll say MAG is lifeless and robotic or is overly masc and testosterone filled….so here you go a little flair to spice it up.

Confederate flag flies next to NCAA arena in South Carolina

GREENVILLE, S.C. — A large Confederate flag is flying from the top of a parking garage next to the arena that’s hosting two men’s NCAA tournament second-round games Sunday evening.

The flag is being flown by a small group of protesters, according to the Associated Press, which arrived Sunday morning and plans to say throughout the games Sunday night.

Protesters said they hoped to make their presence known to the NCAA, which lifted its ban against the state of South Carolina last year because the Confederate flag no longer flies at the statehouse.

The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today


Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Monday:

The Northwestern blown call. Northwestern, playing their first-ever NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, were the media darlings of the Big Dance. That run came to an end with a loss to top-seeded Gonzaga and with a little help from the officials. The Wildcats had cut an 18-point lead to just five and were about to cut it even further when a dunk attempt by Northwestern was blocked. Unfortunately for Northwestern, the officials missed that the defender had reached through the hoop for the block. Head coach Chris Collins ran on to the court to argue and got a technical foul and Northwestern lost all their momentum.

The Destiny Slocum overhead heave. Are you sitting down? You might want to sit down for this one. As the clock was winding down in the first half of the NCAA women’s tournament game between Maryland and West Virginia, Slocum took an inbounds pass and heaved the ball down the court with a two-handed, overhead shot. It went in. Just like they drew it up. Maryland went on to win 83-56.

The Phil Kessel-Patric Hornqvist alley-oop goal. Penguins teammates Kessel and Hornqvist combined for what can best be described as an alley-oop goal. With Kessel behind the net he flipped the puck over the net where Hornqvist took a swing and knocked it out of mid-air and into the net. Adding to the amazement of the goal is that Hornqvist was not waiting in front of the net when Kessel decided to go over the net. Rather, Hornqvist was behind the net also and skated to the front only when he saw the puck go flying. Amazing.

“This is a team for the ages, on and off the court. Their grades ranked in the top 10 percent nationally. That’s worth applauding. All five seniors graduated. In fact, ever since the 1970s, the Wildcats have graduated every four-year player. And that’s the kind of record that you really want.” —President Obama on the 2016 NCAA March Madness Men’s Champion Villanova University Wildcats
