Idle musings

- We're in Season 8 of 24, making me wonder what Jack Bauer's been doing the 2,912 other days over that same time period.

- The moustache on Matt Howard of Butler reminds me of the low quality 'stache on Larry Bird of Indiana State in 1979.

- How many people attending The Masters will be on the first tee on Thursday, when Tiger hits his first shot, just to say "I was there."

- Another baseball season...and another blown lead by the Kansas City Royals' bullpen.

- Speaking of Tiger, his press conference today still didn't answer the big question, "so if you were driving and backed into a fire hydrant at the end of your driveway, how exactly did you get facial lacerations?"

- I've just started a terrific book, The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. It's about the grief that Didion went through after the death of her husband of 40 years, John Gregory Dunne.

- Why do we drive on highways and park on driveways?

- As I watch The Pacific (HBO), and see the scene of a soldier writing home with pencil on paper, I'm reminded of the lost art of penning a letter.

- Head coach Brad Stevens of Butler will be first on the list of any major college program seeking a coach after the 2010-2011 season.
