Look at that picture.  According to ESPN, that picture is supposed to be evidence of how the Cavs are all business this post-season, as opposed to their light-hearted (gay) demeanor all season long.  Now they’re “focused like never before,” as evidenced by their “playoff glares.”

Please.  That picture looks like the poster for some low rent production of “Of Mice And Men” starring Shaq as ‘Lennie’ and Antawn Jamison as Lennie’s younger, even more retarded brother ‘Jeebus.’  I’m not buying it.  It’s weak sauce and ESPN shouldn’t be selling it.

But this is just part of ESPN’s ongoing suckjob on Lebron and the Cavs that is only gonna get worse as the Playoffs continue.  Spare me.  Spare us all.  ESPN trots out one of these ‘Lebron and the Cavs are so intense this post-season’ pieces every year.  Just shut up about it and win a ring already so I can start following Australian Rules Football instead.

Yeah, what a bunch of hardasses.

Flip Saunders giving off the look of confidence.

Flip Saunders giving off the look of confidence.

The Washington Wizards are moments from reaching an agreement with Flip Saunders to become their new head coach, ensuring a commitment on their part to be exactly as good, and no better, than they were before they dumbly hired the last guy.

Washington fired Eddie Jordan because the team couldn’t lock down on defense. So they brought in Ed Tapscott, who proceeded to make Mike Curry look like Mike Woodson. And by that, of course, I mean sort of halfway decent.

If the Wizards land Blake Griffin in this off-season’s draft that team becomes scary on paper. By sucking worse than anyone else, the laws of probability favor them. Think about that top four: Griffin, Arenas, Butler and Jamison. They could hang with anybody. And Flip is just the guy to convert it into an uninspired first round exit.

Isn’t dynamic offense and zero defense EXACTLY Flip’s modus operandi? Why not just bring back Eddie Jordan and pretend this season never happened. Or, if you’re opposed to that, I know where you can get a good deal on a poor-man’s Mike Woodson.

Brendan and Etan have been too depressed to fight.

Manny happy returns.

Manny happy returns.

The theme of this post is ‘Gone til November’. Why? Because that was the hit song the last time Michigan was cutting a rug in March’s Big Dance. But November of 1998 came and Michigan stayed gone. Then the next November came. And the next. And the next. Still no Michigan. Until this past November. November 20th, 2008 to be exact. That was the day Michigan knocked off then #4 UCLA and the rumors started spreading that Michigan might be back.

1998. That was TEN YEARS AGO! Remember Wyclef strumming that guitar while he rapped so pussy it made Lauryn Hill’s balls ache. Wasn’t that novel? NO! It was awful. A lot has changed since then. And some things have stayed the same.

Still awful.

Still awful.

It’s not just that it’s been a long time since Michigan made the Big Dance. It’s been a long time since any one thought about Michigan making it. NIT births were a longshot. The Tournament? That’s for powerhouse schools like Liberty and East Tennessee St.

Somehow this U-M squad found hope where hope was lost. It had to happen eventually and this group is as deserving as any. When he catches a fever Manny Harris gets SICK and Deshawn Sims is a poor man’s poor man’s Antawn Jamison. Throw in a handful of streaky-shooting white kids between 5’10 and 6’10 and they make for an interesting Bracket Buster. They are capable of beating anyone. They are also capable of losing to anyone. The ‘anyone’ they will likely lose to is Clemson in the first round.

But that won’t change anything. 63 teams will lose this tournament at some point over the next few weeks. Some of these teams will never return to “dance” again. Michigan will not be one of them. John Beilein has this program headed in the right direction. And next November we will be back with a vengeance.

GO BLUE!
