My hometown of Boston is not a mecca of college basketball. Here in the Hub we dig the pro game. The Celtics put the NBA on the map, winning 11 championships in 13 seasons in the 1950s and 60s. We've celebrated Auerbach, Cousy, Russell, Havlicek, Bird, Parish and McHale.
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- In the world of television, a strong Thursday-night lineup is critical. Young, affluent viewers tend to tune in en masse on Thursday, and restaurateurs and purveyors of beer, corn chips and movies covet one final crack at that key demographic group as it makes weekend plans. So kudos to the advertisers who bought time on CBS and TBS on Thursday night, because the NCAA tournament will deliver the kind of star-studded lineup Thursday TV hasn't seen since Cliff Huxtable, Sam Malone and Jerry Seinfeld shared the same night on NBC in 1991.
I wish I could just write about seeds and bubble teams today, but last week's headlines preclude it. At the very time of year when the world finally turns its sights to college hoops, our beloved sport suffered twin black eyes with the revelations regarding NCAA investigations at UConn and Tennessee. There seems to be a lot of confusion about these two cases -- what happened, how they're related, and where both schools go from here. Here are answers to the main questions last week's events raised:
With Selection Sunday now just 2 1/2 weeks away, it's a good time to clarify some of the more interesting bracket and bubble questions that could arise between now and March 13. My answers are educated by my attendance at the media mock selection meeting in Indianapolis last week, additional conversations with NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen, who oversees the tournament, and past conversations with members of NCAA selection committees.
A 20-year-old man waiting in line for a ride at Disney's California Adventure Park fell 25 to 30 feet Wednesday night, Anaheim police spokesman Sgt. Rick Martinez said Thursday.
With the success of reality programs on television, it was only a matter of time before a video game designer would take that premise and create a game full of excitement, explosions and deep TV announcer voices.
Team Canada takes on Team USA tonight at 7:30 pm (eastern) in Saskatoon for all the junior marbles. Here's how I see the game breaking down:
If there were any decent synonyms for madness that began with an "N," television execs might already have devised a title for college basketball's late-November bracket business. Alas, the hoop world is stuck with a few weak options: Sometimes the multitude of Classics, Invitationals and Tip-Offs are called "Preseason Tournaments," which is incorrect, since they're part of the regular season; others call them "Early-Season Tournaments," which is still boring; and the NCAA's official term form them, "Multi-Team Events," is the most boring of all.
Question: I've got many investing options in my 401(k) -- small caps, large stocks, emerging markets, fixed-income, etc. What would be the ideal portfolio for me considering that I'm 51 and plan to retire at 65? --D.D., Anaheim, Calif.
The windowless suite on the second floor of the Pacific Palms, a resort 20 miles east of Los Angeles, is prosaically named the NFL Presentation Room. In this sterile bunker, decorated with maps, charts, schematics, architectural models and a wall-mounted flat screen tuned to the NFL Network, Southern California real estate developer Ed Roski greets visitors and lays out his plan to build a gleaming pro football stadium a few miles down the road, where the 57 and 60 freeways intersect in the City of Industry.
Your big remodeling plans may be on hold for a while, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on this buyer's market for home improvements. Just go small.
In this extreme buyer's market, you can talk down the price of everything from flat-screen televisions to summer rentals. When it comes to home improvement, though, haggling is as risky as ever. Even if contractors are more willing to lower their prices nowadays, they're still liable to get angry and to cut corners on the job.

Well, here we are already at the halfway point of the 2008-09 NHL season, and just look at all the fun that has gone down:
The injury list keeps growing for the Philadelphia Flyers.
Like the horizontal scar on the bridge of his nose, Ilya Kovalchuk wears his frustrations honorably. In five NHL seasons, he had as many 40-plus goal seasons as playoff games: four. Despite the futility, he still plays with a high-revving motor, maybe one not cranked to Alexander Ovechkin's RPMs, but certainly high enough.
Firefighters will need at least until midweek to get control of wildfires that have destroyed more than 900 homes and other structures in Southern California, a Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman says.
The NHL got a dream finals this spring: Its biggest star, Sidney Crosby, facing the Red Wings, perhaps its most entertaining team. After getting essentially anonymous matchups in 2006 (Carolina-Edmonton) and '07 (Anaheim-Ottawa), the league can now hope (off the record, of course) for a Penguins-Wings rematch in 2009. Here's a look at each team's off-season challenges.
Days after calling off two shows, the singer is forced to postpone six more
With Alexander Ovechkin on the cusp of the first 60-goal season in 12 years, NHL coaches are having a love affair with the incandescent Capitals star.
The Pittsburgh Penguins' starting goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, returned to action last week after missing nearly three months with a high ankle sprain. After allowing the Boston Bruins two goals on 18 shots in relief of starter Ty Conklin in a game the Pens lost 5-1 on Thursday, Fleury was calm, composed and sharp in his first start three days later.
The absolute last thing that Toronto Maple Leafs general manager John Ferguson, Jr. wants to do is trade Mats Sundin.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Teemu Selanne had to look down at his shirt to confirm what had just happened. After 14 years of disappointment and setback, he just wanted to touch it and make sure it wasn't a dream.
Welcome to the Stanley Cup playoffs, Ric Jackman. We don't expect to be needing your services for very long, but as long as you're here, why not stay awhile and make yourself feel at home?

It's a rough crowd in the Anaheim locker room on the night of May 3. The Ducks have just closed out their Western Conference semifinal series against the Vancouver Canucks, winning Game 5 on Scott Niedermayer's bad-angle, what-the-hell wrist shot from 59 feet in the second overtime. An unofficial assist came from his younger brother, Rob, who had freed up the puck with an organ-jostling, ass-over-bandbox hit on Vancouver winger Jannik Hansen. Across the room from Rob, now recounting that collision to a scrum of reporters, is Brad May (he of the 2,000-plus career penalty minutes) discussing the mucking he did in those final seconds. In the middle of the room stands the formerly handsome
While these aren't full recipes for playoff success, here are three ingredients for each of the eight semifinalists:

For the first time in the NHL's 90-year history, neither of last season's Stanley Cup Final participants will be a part of the playoffs. The Oilers flamed out shortly after shipping Ryan Smyth to Long Island and a third-period collapse on April 3 sealed the Hurricanes' fate.

Now that the dust has settled after last week's trading frenzy, consider the business aspects that arose at the deadline:
Memo to Nashville:
The most improbable heavyweight in the National Hockey League wears a Boogie Nights mustache, speaks passable Spanish and graduated from Princeton in 2003 with a 3.16 grade point average and a degree in economics. George Parros is not the most famous pugnacious Princetonian -- former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld wrestled there in the early 1950s -- but the university is not exactly a haven for the cap-and-goon set. If throwing punches during hockey games seems an odd way for an Ivy Leaguer to make a living, it is no more bizarre than the careers of classmates whom Parros says are now in "I-banking," investment bankers who put in 15-hour days and sleep in their offices. Through Sunday, Parros had played 19 games and averaged 4:41 minutes of ice time this season. If he dresses for 18 of his team's final 30 games and ramps up his ice time to five minutes, he'll play 180 minutes this season. For Parros, earning the NHL minimum of $450,000, that's $150,000 an hour. Take that to the I-bank.
When the Dallas Stars next take their home ice, not one of them will be wearing the No. 12. It didn't have to be an empty sweater. There could have been a superstar wearing it if only the Stars had chosen a different path. If they'd decided to protect their assets.
