It may not be Double Dribble or Ninja Gaiden but a look back at some forgotten Nintendo classics

They may have the hottest flight attendants but good luck scoring with the ladies of  Virgin Atlantic

Maybe if he was a quarterback he could have avoided getting hit by Haynesworth

VS

There are few big match-ups in college basketball tonight. One that does stick out is a Big East battle between UConn and St.John’s. The Red Storm have only been to the tournament twice since 2000 but Steve Lavin slick hair has been turning things around this season in Queens. Lavin’s hair has a long way to go to match Lou Carnesecca’s sweaters but if he can get St. John’s their 1st win against UConn in ten tries tonight it will definitely  help his cause.

1985 and Chris Mullin’s buzz cut are long ago…

This has nothing to do with the game but any chance I have to post Steve Lavin’s wife I am taking it

Despite a career-high 28 points from Kyle Kuric ( season-high 6 rebounds ) and 14 points 7 rebounds from Terrence Jennings ( fouling out in overtime) the Cards became the 15th team to leave Notre Dame with a loss this year. Notre Dame outscored UL 15-5 to win 89-79. The home team has won 8 straight games in the series, including 9 of the last 10 and the fifth overtime game in the last nine meetings between the two teams. Louisville beat the Irish at home last year in double-overtime. The Cards played again without big men Gorgui Deng and Rakeem Buckles to go with a less than 100% Steven Van Treese resulted in a 38-29 rebounding advantage for the Irish, a common theme this year for the Cards.

Ben Hansbrough scored 25 points and Carleton  Scott had nine of his 16 points in overtime.

“We just came out and took it,” Scott said. “We had to let it all hang out and go for it.”

Louisville falls into fifth place in the Big East with Syracuse coming to town on Saturday while Notre Dame is now in sole possession of second place.

Preseason football is in full effect, the Reds are back in 1st place, one day closer for the Battle for the Governor Cup, and John Calipari’s 2nd season at UK has already begun in Canada.
