Thoughts and prayers to the miners and families, including a coworker of mine who lost her brother.

Quote:
In the past year, federal inspectors fined [Massey] more than $382,000 for repeated serious violations involving its ventilation plan and equipment at Upper Big Branch. The violations also cover failing to follow the plan, allowing combustible coal dust to pile up, and having improper firefighting equipment.

Upper Big Branch has had three other fatalities in the last dozen years.

Bad news: he has a torn left ACL, a sprained MCL and two bone bruises. Couldn't feel worse for him. He deserved a vastly better ending to his college career.

Dan Dakich to be on Statewide Sportsline tonight, per Tony Caridi's Twitter account.

Prediction: After about 10 seconds, Dakich abruptly cuts off the interview and leaves.

I'll take it! Plus a couple Zorbees for Da'Sean, who seems to sweat prolifically.

(Since it's Billy Mays, maybe you should've done that ptich in all caps. You know, for the sake of verisimilitude.)

And the Charleston Daily Mail is running that story on its web site, complete with the two Huntington references. Editor fail.

Who is this Diamond Leung who's all of a sudden part of ESPN's college basketball coverage? If I was him, I'd hop in the nearest hot tub time machine and go about getting my young parents to give me a better first name. Like Eamonn.

If I had a hot tub time machine, I'd make sure I didn't change my major from electrical engineering to Bowling Industry Management. A seriously bad move.

Seth Davis says that this is the real national championship game.

Quote:
That Kentucky-West Virginia game is really going to be special. Truthfully, that appears to be the national championship. Those are the two best teams in the tournament right now, and they're playing in the regional final. If I were doing an AP ballot tonight, I guess I may put Duke at No. 2 (behind Kentucky), but I think you can definitely make the case that Kentucky and West Virginia are the two best teams remaining right now.


You just had to ruin it by mentioning Duke, didn't you, Seth?

So I'm reading this article about why people hate Duke, and I come across this passage:

Quote:
There's a concept in sports marketing and social psychology which is called BIRGing, 'basking in reflected glory.' It's when the fans are saying, 'We won.' But if the team loses, the fans are CORFing, which is 'cutting off reflected failure.' The opposite of 'We won' is 'They lost.' In BIRGing, you are on the team. But in CORFing, you've got to remove yourself from the team if you lose, and then you have to have somebody to blame for that. So a school can really only be disliked if it's had historical success that has hurt the feelings of lots and lots of people. Also, if a school has amazing last-second victories that snatch away your BIRGing and turn it into CORFing, you're never going to forgive the people who beat you at the buzzer.


Makes sense. God knows we've seen our share of CORFing around here. Although birging and corfing sound like euphemisms for, I dunno, an eating disorder or something.

Was just reading about an iPhone app that will play the sound of a toilet flushing for either 30, 60, 90 or 120 seconds at a time, so if you're in a public restroom you can cover up the sounds of your, um, gastric cacophany without wasting water with real flushes. That's nice and all, but I'd like the app better if it would play this.

If your desk chair has been tranquilized, the culprits are probably poachers who intend to sell it to a zoo, circus, or third world telemarketing office. To avoid this fate, hide your desk chair before the men with nets come.

Sadly, desk chairs have been hunted to the brink of extinction by rampant, unregulated Land Rover drivers on suburban safaris. Particularly prized by these great white hunters of the cul-de-sac are desk chairs upholstered in rhino, zebra, giraffe and elephant hide.

Too bad the Zags weren't in our region, 'cause "Mazzulla Versus Gonzaga" would make both a great headline and a great Japanese B-movie title.

Let's embed it.

What's the problem? Does Jay Jacobs not want a hug? Feisty old fella.

That was at MSG, right? Maybe he thought he was getting mugged.

And speaking of deletions, Peter Graves has been permanently disavowed.



Or, he's been cast in that great gladiator movie in the sky.



Either way, he'll be saving a bunch more money on car insurance.
