Sweet 16 Round-Up

The Sweet 16 kicked off last night and despite listening to the same DMX song over and over, Xavier couldn't get past Arizona. Wisconsin, led by the support of superfans Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn, defeated North Carolina. I totally disagree with this story about Notre Dame's uniforms (which I love). The Fighting Irish defeated Wichita State and advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time in 36 years.

But all anyone is talking about today is Kentucky, which dismantled West Virginia by 39 points. The game included Wildcat players dunking on one another, a referee falling all over himself and this tattooed UK fan. It was a rough night for West Virginia freshman Daxter Miles Jr., who guaranteed a Mountaineers victory earlier this week, and became a big Twitter target after last night's blowout. Though in fairness to Miles, the entire team was put on blast by the nice people on social media. The game was never close as UK held a 44-18 halftime lead. At least Ashley Judd had a good time.

MLB Team Values

Newsflash: Baseball teams are worth mucho dinero. Forbes has its annual valuations for all baseball teams and the Yankees are first ($3.2 billion) while the Rays are dead last ($625 million). The Yankees have ranked first for the past 18 years and are tied with the Dallas Cowboys for most valuable American sports franchise. Spanish soccer club Real Madrid at $3.44 billion is the most valuable in the world. But does it have this?

Lovely Lady of the Day

AskMen switched things up a bit this year and changed its list from 99 Most Desirable Women to Top 99 Outstanding Women. The votes have been counted and the list is officially out. It still contains some mighty desirable women, including Jessica Alba, Anastasia Ashley, Blake Lively and everyone's favorite rock climber, Sierra Blair-Coyle, who is today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).

Random Movie You Should Watch

I watched Summer School for the first time in forever last night. Underrated movie. Everyone should watch it. In this scene, Mr. Shoop (played by Mark Harmon) meets his new class.
