    Not sure about the parachute comment, but here's somewhat of an update on the pilot per ABC:

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Office described the pilot's injuries and burns as serious. A spokesperson for AirSign, an aerial advertising firm based in Florida, said its blimp was involved in the incident, and told ABC News the pilot suffered nonlife-threatening burns and will be "OK."

    Of course mock drafts vary depending on which site you look at, but here's Sports Illustrated's take on the 2017 NBA mock draft. It actually includes the full first round, but I kept it to the top 10, as that's the most interesting. Really, most are thinking that the 'elite' options only extend to the top 8 picks. (of course my Mavs get the #9 pick :/). Anyways, I tend to like SI the most for mocks; they seem pretty accurate year in, year out. At least for the NBA.

    1. Celtics - Markelle Fultz, PG
    2. Lakers - Lonzo Ball, PG
    3. 76ers - Jayson Tatum, SF
    4. Suns - Josh Jackson, SF
    5. Kings - De'Aaron Fox, PG
    6. Magic - Dennis Smith, PG
    7. Wolves - Jonathan Isaac, SF
    8. Knicks - Malik Monk, SG
    9. Mavericks - Frank Ntilikina, PG
    10. Kings - Lauri Markkanen, PF

    I did see a few articles where Lonzo Ball actually falls to the 4th or even 5th or 6th pick.. just because his talents at point are too close to players that teams at the top of the draft already have. Makes sense, but I think the thought that you pick the best player available should reign supreme here IMO.

    My thoughts are that the Lakers and the Kings make the best out of this draft. That is, only if the Lakers take Ball. Read reports they miiiight take Josh Jackson..

    It's interesting that Dustin Johnson is given best odds, when the course is completely different this time around. I guess they have to give it to someone. Though I think this is anyone's tournament to win. I have little faith in Spieth after rooting for him for over a year now with no success.

    So I'm switching my focus to either Jason Day or Sergio Garcia. I think Erin Hills will be a tough play. Looks like accuracy will win the game. And when either of these guys are on, they are really hard to beat. Same could be said for almost any golfer I guess. Just have a feelin though..

    We have the top 8 set now. Was actually very predictable, if you were just picking from the beginning. All the big names are there. The only surprise to me was CSU Fullerton. Here they are, for the finals:

    Bracket 1 -
    Oregon State
    LSU
    CSU Fullerton
    Florida State

    Bracket 2 -
    Florida
    TCU
    Louisville
    Texas A&M

    I am hoping for... LSU and Texas A&M.

    What a great series. I am all for a four-peat next year. I still don't see anyone, including the Cavs, taking down the dynasty that is now the Warriors. But I hear rumors of the Spurs trying to acquire Chris Paul. Anxious to see if anyone can stack their rosters in the offseason to deal with the Durant/Curry combo.

    Yeah. Funny, my eyes scanned for the 2017 game 6 call. Was going to add if it wasn't there. I figured that's what prompted the thread though. Sucks to think how much a single call can change the entire flow of a game. And sometimes a series, if you buy into momentum.

    Penguins won the Stanley Cup, again. And Sidney Crosby is the Conn Smythe (MVP) winner, again. After winning the Stanley Cup MVP two years in a row, something that's only been done by 2 other players ever, is it too early to start thinking of Crosby as one of the best hockey players, period?

    He's only 29. No reason to think his team can't three-peat next year either. If not now, if he does it again, it should be undeniable. Read an article talking about only 4 names ahead of his:

    Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, and Mario Lemieux.

    Lemiuex was one of the other 2 to ever win back to back Conn Symthe trophies. So makes sense that Crosby is in the #5 consideration.

    What do you think of that list? Does he belong, yet?

    Nadal's definitely my favorite to watch. And even though Federer has him on titles at the moment, their head to head record suggests Nadal may be better.

    Head to head record

    Being that Nadal is 4 years younger than Federer, I think Nadal will own the record books when it's all said and done for a very long time. His only other strong competition is Djokovic, who has 12, and is a year younger than him.

    2017 College Baseball World Series Live Bracket

    We have the first Regional winner of 16, making it onto the Super Regionals: CSU Fullerton. They're set up to play either Texas or Long Beach. My guess is Texas, as they are already up a game there.

    Anyways, made this thread to discuss the 2017 college baseball regionals - world series action. Let me know which team you are pulling for and why. I remain an Aggie fan. Even though 2 years in a row I got cocky about them, and they didn't deliver.

    Good call. 5-1 victory means there is still very much a chance for them. I was starting to believe the pundits, that this series would be over in 4 or 5 games. Now I think they can go 7. Feels more like a coin flip now.
