What is the most significant thing to come out of Kentucky's hiring of John Calipari? A new star has been born -- The Door.
CC Sabathia :: Walter Iooss, Jr./SI
My favorite SI issue of the year is out -- the Baseball Preview issue. My first two thoughts were the same as Bob's Blitz. Now, normally, I try not to go overboard about the Yankees, but since this is the time for baseball predictions, I'll go on record with this: The Yankees will have a huge season, 105 wins. Go to Vegas and POUND the over of 95.5 wins. It's lock money!
For those of you who missed the story, there isn't more for me to add. The headline really says it all. But you do need to see the picture of the motorized bar stool.
Adam Strasser, of Indianapolis, says, "Since the NCAA tournament began I have been looking everywhere for a clip of the greatest ESPN commercial of all time -- Chris Farley recreating Rumeal Robinson's free throws vs. Seton Hall. Alas, it seems to not exist. Can you use your supernatural abilities to make it happen?" I searched around for the clip, too, but came up empty. First reader to find it gets an SI Swimsuit calendar.
I also forgot to mention that the Hot Clicks Facebook group surpassed 13,000 members over the weekend. Unbelievable! And for you 13,000-plus people is a new post about the dirtiest terms in sports and a post on the five girls you'll meet in a college bar. And for even more, you can follow me on Twitter.
A song about Kentucky hiring John Calipari, titled Caliparication.
My buddy Drill sent this to me because I've been one of the people ranting and raving about how much the new Facebook sucks.
Adam, of State College, Pa., says, "Jimmy, please post this link for those of us who just can't understand why Twitter has actually caught on. And yes, there are lots of us who have this opinion of Twitter." Jason, of Baltimore, also sent in this video.
