Something Old And Something New

by Trevor Freeman

Two men.  One a giant in his sport and the other a literal giant had news that seemed to fly under sport’s radar last week.  It is surprising considering the two names involved.  However their news has the potential to impact the sports scene in 2008.  For David Beckham being asked to rejoin England and Roy Hibbert deciding to rejoin the Georgetown Hoyas means there could be a little more sizzle on each side when they show up for America and Europe’s version of the Madness.

Our Look At The Final Four

Goosebumps.  That was what filled my arm down the stretch of the Georgetown-North Carolina game as I watched the Hoyas rally back to deliver a revenge punch that had been twenty-five years in the making.  And I’ll be quite honest…….I was worried that this Elite Eight was going to leave us wanting for more.  I thought the only goosebumps I was going to get all weekend was from a second viewing of last Wednesday’s “Friday Night Lights” (“friends……friends….Texas forever….Texas forever man”).  Then the last seven minutes of regulation and overtime gave us the stirring comeback we had been dying for all weekend.
