Game Day Diversion

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) – We are less than 12 hours away from tip off vs. the school down South and if history has taught us anything, I can guarantee that the rest of today will creep by in dog years, for both friend and foe alike. “From the Swamp” is here to provide a little something to kill the time until we kill the Frenchmen.

Best of all, some of these links are from The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, so if anybody at work questions what you are doing, you can snap back “Research, dammit!” and tell them to MYOFB.

Here we go:

-- Both teams are not exactly lighting it up from the charity stripe. Did you know that the 50 year men’s collegiate average for FT shooting is 69%? It basically hasn’t varied more than 1-2% either way since 1965. The 50 year NBA average is 75%.

Fascinating stuff:

-- Something else that hasn’t changed? Trash talking:

It ain’t trash talking if you can back it up. Larry Bird was the acknowledged master at this art form.

-- The hardest sport in which to win a game on the road? To no one’s great surprise, College Basketball, according to the Wall Street Journal:

Think anybody on the NCAA Selection Committee will bother to read this?

-- The WSJ has stepped up its sports reporting to daily coverage. The fact that the paper is now owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Fox probably has a little something to do with this move. Here is a live blog from last night’s Pitt/Marquette game:

-- How would you like to walk around the corner and stumble upon one of these suckers:

-- If you think the US economy is screwed up, allow “Moneyball” author Michael Lewis to take you on a tour of the financial crater that is Iceland:

I only wish that I was smart enuf to have shorted the three banks in Iceland…can you imagine how much money those guys made?

Enjoy the game!

That’s it “From the Swamp.”
