Sports is an Insane Part of Life

Here are some sort of crazy things that happened in sports this week/last night:

  1. Netherlands beats the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic twice.

    The roster of the Netherlands has about $400k in MLB contracts for this year.

    The Domican Republic has $83m in MLB contracts for this year.

    This has to be one of the biggest upsets in the history of sports.

  2. DePaul beats Cincinnati in the Big East Tournament.

    DePaul was 0-16 in Big East regular season play. How in the world did they win this game?

  3. North Dakota State made the big dance in the first year they were eligible.

    There are schools that have been playing basketball for forever and haven't made the NCAA tournament.

  4. Clippers blow big lead to the Cavs.

    The worst pro franchise going right now and for many years was up 69 to 52 at the start of the 4th quarter against the best team in the NBA. Somehow they got outscored 35 to 14 in the 4th quarter and blow the game. That's just how the Clippers roll. Don't try to understand it.

    If you know a fan of the Clippers, give them a call today and check to make sure they are ok.

    Billy Crystal, start rooting for the Kings already.
