Please excuse us while the new site is being built.
So, our new SBN site was supposed to launch today. At noon. Seeing as how we’re all still here, that obviously hasn’t happened. We’re told it’ll go down tomorrow. Minor issues, minor touchups. Hey, let’s make sure we get this right.
Anyway, while we wait for the new site (and another AWESOME post from HydroTech that’ll really get us started over there), here’s some possible topics of interest. Discuss amongst yourselves…
* According to reader RR, some guy was murdered in front of Top Dog last night. That’s crazy, man. I used to eat there at 1 AM all the time, and while people were sometimes pretty boisterous, I never felt like something like this would go down. Crazy.
* Cal baseball lost 9-5 at UC Davis last night. Man, the Bears have really struggled in the mid-week games this year. They’ve got basically no pitching depth, which I’d have to imagine will come back to bite them in the postseason.
* Myles Brand says he’s going to look into the O.J. Mayo allegations. Sucks to be an ‘SC basketball fan right now. Personally, I don’t care, but I think at least part of the blame has to come down on the NBA and its age limit rule. Mayo’s been essentially a professional basketball player for years, doing just enough to preserve his ‘amateur’ status, and there was no good reason he shouldn’t have been playing in the NBA last season. None.
* Man, that Iron Man movie was pretty awesome. At this point, I’d have to say that Robert Downey Jr’s career is pretty darn indestructible. Try as he might, he can’t screw it up permanently.
