There's alot of sports news today. The story concerning Reggie Bush (whom I predict will still be the first pick in tomorrow's draft) is greater stranger and stranger.

I can't believe that it has been thirteen years today since Jim Valvano died. Back in 1988, I was in Kansas City for the Final Four (Duke lost to eventual national champion, Danny Manning and the Miracles) were I saw Jim Valvano at the airport. It had just been reported that Valvano had turned down the UCLA job. He was walking around the airport in a sweatsuit, eating popcorn. I walked up to him, shook his hand and told him,"Coach, I'm glad that you are staying at State, even though I'm a Duke fan and you always give Duke trouble." He smiled back and said, "Not always, son, not always." I remember watching the ESPY awards and hearing the famous "Don't give up, don't ever give up!" speech afterwards he had to be literally carried back to his seat by Coach K and Dickie V (for those of you who think Coach K is an a-hole, I offer that evening and Coach K's friendship with Jimmy V as an example). Today, and any any day for that matter, is a good day to consider giving to the Jimmy V Foundation: DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T EVER GIVE UP!
Today's birthday girl-Jessica Alba!! Happy Birthday!

I was going to post something about the White Sox, but I decided to post this e-mail that a friend forwarded to me instead. Not sure why. Hopefully it will lead to more interest in my blog.

I am sure you will not see this story on since all of its attention must be focused on the Duke campus:

Here is an extremely well-written story by a female Duke student concerning the "Duke Lacrosse Team Rape Allegation" story.

Not only is life great in Chicago if your name is Ozzie Guillen, but your life is just as golden if your name is Ozzie Guillen Jr.! Jr. is co-hosting a party tonight with Playboy's Miss May 2006!!! Damn, if only my dad had managed a World Series Champion team!! If you can make the party at Reserve tonight, enjoy!!

Gee, I wonder why this story doesn't get one-tenth of the attention that the "Duke Lacrosse" story is getting.

It was a Happy Easter for Chicago Sports fans! The Bulls beat the Miami Heat to clinch a spot in the playoffs. The White Sox, Cubs and even the forgotten Blackhawks joined the Bulls in the win column.
Forget about Tax Day, it's a Mega-Birthday day for friends and fans of the K-Line. Starting with the most important, it's my dad's birthday, Happy Birthday, Pop, I'm proud to be your son. Next Peter and Jennifer Garner were born on this 33 years ago. Apparently Peter no longer dreams of marrying Jennifer Garner, but since they were born on the same date, he will alsways have a special place in his heart for her (too corny, Pete?). Next, my man, Tommy hits the big 10 years old today. Tommy (that's Thomas Zachary, of course!), thanks for letting me to be one of your adopted uncles. Finally, but not the least, Brett Favre's #1 fan, Willie, is 9 years old as of today. Willie, all of us in Chicago know that you are a secret Bears fan! Have a good birthday and talk your dad into coming out for a White Sox game!! Happy Birthday to all, especially to Jennifer Garner!!

For those you you who want to feel old today, Seka turn 52 years old today. Apparently she no longer lives in Chicago, so it is unlikely that you will spot her at any more Cubs or Sox games.

Jim Thome- Future Hall of Famer? Barring injuries, he should finish with over 500 career home runs.

Thankfully, Rebecca Romijin looked much better in the second episode of "Pepper Dennis" than she did in the pilot episode (did she have to gain weight for "X-Men 3"?). Unfortunately, the presence of Rebecca Romijin, Brooke Burns, and Lindsey Price may not be enough to overcome the predictible formula storylines of the this "WB" series, set in Chicago but filmed in LA.

Some local fans may recall Maggie Dixon from her days as an assistant to Doug Bruno at DePaul. Just a sad story.

Hopefully the Cubs' pitching situation will not be as bad as it seems right now.
