Monday, Monday.....

How bad will it get? That is the question for the Blazers. One media friend in Seattle said after watching the debacle last night that he "hadn't seen a NBA team in this much trouble since Isiah ran the Raptors." My only thought is-what about the Knicks with Isiah in charge? I guess it could get worse!

As you get ready for the NCAA title game tonight, here is something to look forward to:

Stop the Madness!
From the Sports Business Daily.....In a front-page piece in the N.Y. TIMES, Corey Kilgannon wrote ESPN “has declared dominoes the next big spectator sport and is promoting it as both a colorful cultural touchstone and a highly competitive game.” ESPN Deportes shows hour-long domino shows on Tuesdays at 10:00pm ET, with a similar show planned for ESPN2 starting in June. ESPN Deportes GM Lino Garcia: “We think it will be the next cool thing” (N.Y. TIMES, 4/2). Also in N.Y., Julie Bick reported ESPN has signed a deal to produce a televised celebrity chess tournament this spring featuring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes and others.

Congrats to P-1 listener Bill who is number on in our Cingular Fan Frenzy at www.1080thefan.com and also is #2 in the national competition too! He has UCLA tonight so go Bruins and hopefully the local guy does good against the rest of the country!

Thank you and goodbye,
