Hey, just wanted to post a quick note saying that the NCAA women's tournament is also underway, and that I'm going to be completely ignoring it.

It's not that I don't like women's basketball... actually, yes, that's exactly what it is. I respect the women involved, don't get me wrong. They're working harder at basketball than I am ever likely to work at anything. There are great coaches and great people there. But going from watching men's basketball to watching women's basketball is like going from watching Ali/Frazier to watching a couple of toddlers wrestle over teddy bear.

Tennessee's Candance Parker dunked today, twice, in fact, against Army. That's terrific. I'm going to start watching women's basketball for the dunks. Rough day for the Dixon family, by the way, as Jamie lost at Pitt and Maggie lost at Army.

ESPN2 has wall-to-wall coverage of the women today. Someone let me know how it all turns out.
