If it's March it has to Basketball....well

The coal region was represented by one team in the state finals. The Golden Girls of Pottsville Nativity came up short against Bishop Guilfoyle but with five starters coming back, the future looks bright.

Williams Valley and Shamokin got knocked by eventual state champs, Girard College and Archbishop Carrol. Hughesville got knocked by eventual state champ, Imhotep Charter.

The road gets harder for Villanova with a game against Duke and possible game against Pitt. Tipoff for the Wildcats is scheduled for close to 10 pm on Thursday night.


Lance Armstrong took a big fall today racing in Spain. Reports are that Lance broke his collarbone and will be on the shelf for 4 to 6 weeks. He will certainly miss May's Giro Italia in Italy.

The Schill is gone

After 20 years in the majors, Curt Schilling has decided to retire. What Reggie Jackson was to October hitting, Schilling may be that to October pitching. Schilling was 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA. He won World Series rings with the 2001 Diamondbacks, 2004 Red Sox and the 2007 Red Sox. As far as the Hall of Fame it will be where the dust settles after 5 years. His knock will be only 216 wins versus 300 automatic ticket.

Fearless against the New York Yankees and breaking the Red Sox' Curse of the Bambino should count for something. Pitching in 12 playoff series his teams won 10 of the them!!!
