I'm annoyed that Nadal and Federer are in the same quarter. Dick Gasket/Ferrer quarter seems weak at first glance, but has some depth, and I could see Jerzy, Gulbis, or even Milos making the semis there. I would love an Isner/Nadal round of 16 match over Labor Day weekend since the big fella is pl...

I still think this is chicken little stuff (petrodollar doom has been talked about since '05, at least) and the guy is making huge assumptions. The U.S. has the guns/nukes and the dollar is still the best looking whore in the room, but, if things are unstable in Saudi, that could be...

On ESPN2 right now. Rafa up on early break. It finally feels like hardcourt season is upon us. The winner should easily handle Milos Raonic tomorrow.

I think it's lame to go pure 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 because I don't think picking the champ means you should automatically win. The guy who gets 30 games right in the first round shouldn't get punked by the office bimbo who went with the chalk champ. Yet, later rounds should be worth a few more points...

Silly Buckeyes don't want a B1G thread, so this track meet is getting its own thread.
This game is setting the sport back 50 years. Yahoo Gamecast says U-M's John Horford had three fouls in 45 seconds. That is essentially Wisconsin's only offense.

There is a whole issue of whether marketing potential matters v. straight sales of product.

I also realize that some guys pro...
