1. A win is a win. That's the way The Rock handled Baywatch's Razzie Award win in the "The Razzie Nominee So Bad You Loved It" category over the weekend.

Humbly accepting the award via Instagram, Dwayne Johnson has a good laugh at his own expense, he said, "The movie was so bad they actually had to create another category. I'm not kidding. The new category is, "A movie so rotten, you eventually fell in love with it, which means the shit sandwich you have been eating is so bad, that you eventually started to like it. Look, we made Baywatch with the best of intentions. It didn't work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie and I thank you critics, thank you fans."

Just another example of why The Rock is the best.

2. CBS and Turner have released their broadcast teams for the NCAA Tournament. The big news is that for the first time in a long time, Verne Lundquist, who has already stepped away from calling college football, will be working the tourney. The New York Post reports that Verne, who had back surgery in November, will still work the Masters for CBS.

3. As I always say, the most disturbed people in sports are football coaches.

4. This will be fascinating to watch if he goes through with it: Cubs pitcher Jon Lester, who has a mental block about throwing over to first base, said he may intentionally use a bounce throw to first while holding on runners this season.

5. A second trailer has been released for the upcoming Karate Kid reboot series, Cobra Kai.

6. Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins was kind enough for write a first-person piece for SI.com on why Field of Dreams is bad movie.
