The 2012 Championship Game Was Fred McGriff Approved...

Just a few thoughts on Kentucky's impressive win in last night's NCAA Championship game:

*First and foremost, congratulations to John Calipari. It's one thing to have several Final Four appearances vacated, but you're not a true pimp until you have a National Championship vacated...or until you wear a white suit on the sidelines. Whichever comes first...

The Crime Dog wants YOU to watch the 2012
NCAA Championship game!
*Kentucky was the better team, played better basketball by forcing their opponent to play their style, and actually won the game. Who'd have thought? Yep, for once a game actually unfolded the way that most of us thought it would. The only shocking part of that game last night was how well I thought it was officiated. There were 3-4 times that, under normal circumstances, at least 2-3 fouls could have easily been called had the refs not correctly decided to let them play on. It allowed the players to engage in an acceptably physical style that at never point even approached getting out of control. In short, it was what real basketball should look like, and it was refreshing to see...

As I tweeted, that's the tape they should show every ref on day 1 of referee training and at least once before the start of every season and conference tournament. It should become to basketball officiating what the tom Emanksi tapes are to the fundamentals of baseball. You know, minus Fred McGriff...unless he too agrees to wear a full white suit...and a top hat. Gotta have the top hat...

65% of the time it beats the buzzer 100% of the time...
*Overall, the tournament was great. No buzzer beaters, but plenty of great finishes and performances, and it ended with the crowning of a worthy champion. Aside from the fact that Gus Johnson was nowhere to be seen, I'd say it was without question a resounding success. And think about it. No Gus Johnson, and no buzzer beaters. Coincidence? Yeah, right. Coincidental like a FOX!! RISE AND FIRE! Oh, Gus. You beautiful, beautiful man...

I'd like to use the moonshine line, Regis.
*Reports out of Lexington say there was a fan that was shot while celebrating the team's victory. Only one? In Kentucky? That's not news. Show me someone in Kentucky reading a book that doesn't contain at least 3 pictures and/or a diagram of how to make a liquor still in the woods behind your cabin, and then we'll talk...

It's bittersweet, the ending of the NCAA Basketball season, but it was a fun ride while it lasted. Now, if you don't mind, I need to decompress after a long year of hoopin' it up, and turn my attention to finding a nice wall to bang my head against as I watch a Summer full of Red Sox baseball. Really? It's only April 4th and we're already dealing with "Thumb-gate". Yeah, this should be a fun season. Nice knowing ya, Ben Cherington. Play your cards right, and you could probably  split cab fare with Bailey while you're both leaving town...

Then again, maybe I should let them play a few before I start handing out pink slips. Even if I've only seem more dismal previews from the reality TV abortionists behind the latest National Geographic TV gem, Wicked Tuna. There's a bet for ya. Cherington/Valentine vs Wicked Tuna. Which lasts for more seasons? Might have to place a few duckets down on fisherman. In my experience, people like watching crappy TV about fishing more than they like a losing baseball team. It's just entertainment 101...
