A touch of March Madness in December

Hands down, the absolute best sports moment of the weekend:

This is why I’ve always thought that if I ever live abroad, I’d miss college basketball the most. (Then there is the the ugly brawl at the end of Saturday’s Xavier-Cincinnati game.)

With all the miserable headlines about child sex abuse scandals, outrageous free agent contracts, a dubious nixing of a major NBA trade and everything else that’s been plaguing the world of sports lately, this is a joyful reminder of what drew us to this craziness in the first place.

Great reads from Bloomington by Dana O’Neil, Pat Forde, Bob Kravitz and John Clay.

As for the best ongoing sports story right now, at least in North America, the Tim Tebow phenomenon is getting more unbelievable every week.

Surely this has got to come to an end, right?

    Nice to see Indiana Basketball on the comeback trail. It’s been a long time coming.
