COLD WATER AND BATTLE LINES

I have to give it to the big guy. He knows how to get me angry. As a UNC fan, I wanted to hear him lavish some praise on potentially the best Tarheel team ever. And also admit that he had not given them enough due because he was busy batting his eye lashes at Jim Calhoun. Cold water right in my face. "Kudos to North Carolina. They were the best team. Nothing else to say." I guess since his bracket was blown up a long time ago, the tournament doesn't mean anything to him.

As a Met fan, I knew there would be overreaction to yesterday's game considering that the revamped bullpen were involved directly. If the bullpen blew it, then Minaya screwed up. If they saved it, Minaya is a genius. Obviously, yesterday's game means nothing more than a win. But for Mike to come out and mock the Met fan about winning over 100 games is more than cold water. He wants to draw the battle lines. Mets fans, calm down. Yankee haters, you're crazy. Either way, he wants an intercine NY blood feud.

You gotta hand it to the NYY fans. They never disappoint. Mike brushes UNC aside and does a tongue-in-cheek breakdown of Opening Day. The NYY fan takes the sarcasm and runs with it like Mike was being serious. Beautiful. No doubt Brosius makes all those plays at 3rd, goes 4-4 and sac bunts home the winning run. As I listen right now, call after call is from crazed Yankee fans.

What kind of a knot do you think Jerome from Manhattan tied to hang himself? I wish Mike would let this guy back.

Fatso was at his best arrogant self to start the show. I only turned in to hear his spin on UNC as he said all year that Carolina had no chance they played NO defense.

Well today instead of saying he was wrong he punted. The dial was turned after the first break.

Mike just touched on his slandering of Ryan Church last year. "he had his brain scrambled a little last year." What a touching apology, Mike.

Mike's starting to become like Ryan Church. After saying that the RF's brains were scrambled sometimes, he put the downfall of the '08 Mets on a 'chatty bullpen'.

Gman...of course he tossed cold water on the tournament. No Calhoun? No Big East team in the Champ Game? No need to talk any further about it...

And of course since he didn't have UNC winning it, time to move on....

Here comes the sleeper Roy White spot. Way to bring a show to a grinding halt...

I disagree. I thought Mike's open was really hilarious today. Of course, that's coming from a Yankee fan myself, but clearly he was joking. I heard a lot of overreaction myself today, so I thought Mike played it perfectly with that open.

Sorry he brushed your precious UNC aside, but as someone who strongly dislikes basketball, I was glad to see Mike finally get off the topic. And from what I could tell, the game was a boring shutout anyway, so what would you want him to say? Congrats on the win.
