--PYB thinks it's safe to say when you're clowning around Phoenix, getting booted from your son's high school games, your NBA career is over. Well, it was probably over when Mike Bibby made a name for himself the last few years by bullying his way around the local LA Fitness courts in the offseason. That, in addition to stiffing waiters in town and hitting on shoe-store employees.
--Did anyone else hear that today is Michael Jordan's 50th birthday? ESPN is so awesome. They uncovered a gem of a story this week about MJ dunking on a short guy and then when a fan told him to pick on someone his own size he dunked on a taller guy the next trip down the floor! Never heard that one before.
--Tim Miles' basketball team had to have set a record Saturday night for number of three-point shots they had blocked in a single game. In all, Michigan State swatted 12 Husker shots. Two in a row came when NU cut the Spartan lead to one point, only to try to post up Brandon Ubel twice in a row. He got dominated both times. Game over.
--Nebraska's baseball team has started 0-3 in Southern California, as the ghost of Mike Anderson can't yet be shaken. Hopefully, it's just a slow start that's typical for many Northern teams. More likely, though, is that Anderson's destruction of the program was so complete that NU won't win games like this for several years, if ever again.
--Supposedly, former Husker IB Ken Clark died. PYB can't find any details to this point, but he couldn't have been too much older than we. If it's true, RIP.
