...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

Flip a coin

I don't watch nearly as much college hoops as I used to. But one thing hasn't changed. I still have no idea what is and what isn't a foul. No wonder all these hoops coaches look like nut jobs.

Had to feel for former Bobby Mo guy Mike Rice yesterday. Rice was too busy going crazy over the plethora of missed calls (justifiably so) to realize the real blunder with 1.7 seconds left. After gaining possession on the Rutgers inbound, some Johnnies player took a sprint with the rock out of bounds, and basically, all 3 refs looked like deer in headlights. Game and season over for Rice.

Hockey and footie refs get a lot of razzing for missed calls, but imho, the basketball zebras are the absolute worst.

In other hoops news, our beloved Bob fell to Long Island last night. It was a great free throw contest that went to OT, but in the end, our Colonials couldn't shoot as many free throws as LIU. Nice rookie season for HC Andy Toole. The Bob is young...they'll be back.

Basketball is impossible to officiate.
