    Yeah, I really enjoyed that moment across the net after the game. You can really tell there is a huge mutual respect between the two.

    I've actually heard good things about Spinoff. Like the quote says, the horse has a great lineage. If Spinoff doesn't make a splash this race, I can see the horse doing it in races to come.

    Agreed on the Pepis commercial. It has flash, but not much else. It's kind of annoying when you watch it enough.

    Here's my favorite:

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I agree, Japan has some of the best, and most respectful fans out there. The only regrets of my trip to Japan was not actually seeing a baseball game, and little did I know my cousin there was in the minor leagues.

    I think it's gonna be like any other sport we've participated in at the Olympics. If we recruited them, then they are team USA, unless they don't wanna be. Our diversity is what makes our country so different, especially in international sports.

    March Madness will be upon us soon enough. The Big Ten is surprising us by being one of the strongest conferences this season in college basketball. It had just 3 teams in the preseason AP Top 25 poll, then there were six ranked last week. Now two are in the top six. According to an article I found, it's predicts Michigan or Michigan State could bring the Big Ten it's first championship since 2000. So here are 5 games to watch in preparation for March Madness.

    Wisconsin at Maryland - Jan. 14

    This one might not jump off the page but these are two teams that have likely positioned themselves to be in the NCAA tournament if it started today. But, a couple bad losses and both teams could be out, which makes this one all the more important.

    Michigan State at Nebraska - Jan. 17

    For those who don’t pay attention to the Big Ten as much, you might not know that Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, has become a premier venue in college basketball. It’ll be rocking for this one.

    Michigan at Indiana - Jan. 25

    The Wolverines knocked off the Hoosiers at home on Jan. 6 behind Jordan Poole’s and Charles Matthews’ 18 points each. Michigan has great play all over the court and has really enjoyed one of the best surprises of the season in freshman big man Ignas Brazdeikis. The Wolverines allow just 55 points per game (third in the nation) and rank fourth in defensive efficiency per KenPom.

    Michigan State at Purdue - Jan. 27

    Could Purdue really miss the NCAA tournament one season removed from winning the Big Ten outright? Well, if the Boilermakers beat Michigan State, there’s little chance that happens.

    Ohio State at Michigan - Jan. 29

    The football rivalry Ohio State and Michigan have doesn’t nearly transcend sports, but this is always a fun game when the two teams are ranked. It’s just a shame they only play once this year.

    Depending on their outcomes, I wonder how these games will affect the next month or so, leading into March Madness? Is there a game that is bigger and more telling for the future? Thoughts?

    I'd say it's freedom of speech. The placement of the ad feels like Nike is thumbing its nose at the NFL, but who know what sort of political craziness is going on behind the scenes between Nike and the NFL. Does anyone think they chose him to make the ad more 'edgy'? Just for the sake thereof?

    I found a cool article that got me all nostalgic. The "Intimidator" winning the 500 happened during blissful time in my life. I was only 11, but I remember it well. I was a Gordon fan at the time, but I couldn't help but be happy for Earnhardt because he was my second favorite driver at the time. The article points out something important. Throughout most of his career, you hardly ever saw that man crack a smile, hence the nickname of the Intimidator, but at this particular Daytona 500, race fans got to see a side of that man that was hardly seen. Can anyone top this moment? To you, what is the hands-down best Daytona win in history?

    Dallasite Wrote: Also, I did hear the North Koreans will walk together with the South Koreans this year at the ceremonies, as some sign of unity. Sounds like a disingenuous PR stunt to me. Anyone have any info on that?

    I'm a little shocked. None this makes any sense to me. It goes from "I'll blow you up" to "Why can't we be friends?". I don't get it.

    I think I saw more Olympic ads than ever have before during a Super Bowl. Wow, they're selling it hard this year. It's probably because NBC holds all of the keys.

    Call me an old softy, but I still like the ceremonies, regardless of the politics. It's really not about the fans. It's about the athletes. Come on, can you imagine what they're feeling at that moment? Pageantry or not, it's still a special moment for an athlete. Plus I'm sure they're just fine with the opening ceremony going on two days later.
