Blasting Britney's NCAA Tourney Promos

While seeing all the promos for Britney Spears' appearance on How I Met Your Mother during NCAA tournament action this past weekend, we thought for sure that the New York Post's Phil Mushnick would blast the spots, since a) Mushnick complains about everything and b) the commercials featured references to sex. But instead, it was USA Today's Michael McCarthey who called out CBS. We say lighten up for one reason. We love HIMYM and we've heard rumblings it could get canceled. So we want the show to get any publicity and any ratings bump it can get.

Sports Video Of The Day
Reader Jon Nelson sent us the following e-mail about this hockey fight video featuring Patrick Roy's son, who pulls off one of the biggest lowlife moves we've ever seen: "It takes a while to warm up, but goaltender Jonathan Roy finally gets his wish at the 1:25 mark, and gets his wish again at the 2:00 mark with someone other than the goalie he just pummeled. The perfunctory (a.k.a., "standard") father cut-away reaction is at the 2:30 mark."
