It's springtime in Chicago, even if the temperatures aren't where we would like them to be. We should be seeing flowers blooming and trees with buds on them, instead of empty branches.

In a week or so, I will be offering thoughts on Passover, right now I am still in sports mode.

Baseball started and so far, Chicago is 0 for 4 as both the Cubs and Sox dropped their first two games to the Brewers and Indians respectively. I think Cleveland is doing better than Chicago, not only in baseball but in football (Browns went 10-6 and should have made the playoffs, until the Titans backed into the playoffs because of the Colts resting their starters) and basketball, Cavs made the Finals last year.

Great hire by Indiana University in hiring Tom Crean of Marquette University to take the basketball head coach position. I had been banging the drums for this guy for two years. It's kind of similar to Niehaus winning the Frick Award. As far as potential NCAA sanctions for IU, I think by sacrificing Sampson, they will get off somewhat easily, also IU is a name program and the NCAA likes to protect them. Yes I know that they nailed Kentucky in 1989-1991, but it's Kentucky not North Carolina or Duke.
