As a long-time Vanderbilt fan, let me just say everyone should be THANKING Bob Ryan instead of running him down. It seems like he motivated the Commodores. For a college that has had very few moments of glory, this is one of the all-time best! Yesterday was freaking awesome!! However, UCONN is looming ahead like a mid-80's Hulk Hogan. Go Dores!
Who's judging American Idol? Paula Abdul? Paula Abdul judging a singing contest is like Christopher Reeve judging a dance contest!
I like Hakeem as well (save for him torching my beloved Spurs in the 1995 playoffs). It's a shame he didn't end his career as a Rocket, but he has plenty of great moments for us to remember. He's one of the most versatile center of all time.
