The NCAA College Basketball Tournament is underway.

Millions of people had hopes of raking in the cash with Yahoo! and Quicken Loans offering a $1 Billion reward for a perfect bracket. However, most of their hopes have been dashed, thanks in large part to two unlikely upsets.

feb20There are three days left until the trade deadline, the best Thursday of the season, no matter what TNT might say. Folks stay glued to their Twitter feeds awaiting word of who is heading where, with 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET the most riveting two hours of the entire season.

This season, with so many weak Eastern Conference teams trying to add a difference maker that would allow them to compete with the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, and with the Western Conference race basically a nine-team affair, there is a strong desire to get better immediately among at least half of the teams in the league.

Does that mean that 15 teams will be involved in trades? Heck no. That only happens on draft night.

Everyone has their moment, impassioned by the play of their favorite player(s) on their favorite team(s) while watching their favorite sport. Some fans are crazy and have fits of rage when their team doesn’t play to their expectations. Others, however, may be more subdued when facing . They’d rather turn off the television and go to bed before seeing the end of the game if their team is losing.

Some fans enjoy a great game, regardless of who is playing.

However, the greatest fans—in any sport, but especially in basketball—are likely the guys who have committed their lives to it…the players, themselves.

The National Football League has gotten a lot of negative press this season, from Riley Cooper’s use of a racial slur to the Aaron Hernandez murder trial. Considering that the NFL is the most popular sport in America, it is reasonable to think that when trouble arises in The League everyone will be talking about it.

Such is the case with the recent revelation that Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito has been harassing teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team in recent weeks due to an emotional breakdown.

Sacramento Kings big man Jason Thompson doesn’t mince words on the matter.
