Gooooooooood Morning, Vietnam!

This section should be in the little permanent box above this, but I don't know how to do that yet. And that, folks, is the kind of savvy you can expect from me, Adam Kilgore, over the next three to five days. I'll be our primary blogger for the Final Four, a decision made My Boss Rennie in an effort to either a) get me fired or b) keep our lawyers alert.

My hope is to not sully Steinberg's good name while keeping you updated on goofy things athletes and coaches say, any breaking "news", the atmosphere in the Georgia Dome and around Atlanta, any pertinent gambling information and the hijinks of Mike Wise. I'll try to have a few items on cheese; I'll definitely have several items on beer (perhaps enough to get me to fired).

(Although those beer references, sadly, won't be about craft hewe with 16 consonants; it'll probably just be a lot of Miller Lite.)

I'll also try to provide links each morning, starting now. America's Newspaper says DaJuan Summers is hitting his stride and it's a Final Four full of rematches. Another moron writes about Hibbert-Oden. No one else really thought to write or talk about that story, so I was pretty pleased with the scoop. Ohio State is worried about Jeff Green. Octavious Spann can't wait to go home. Here's the AJC's GTown notebook Omnipresent Beret Joseph White profiles Jonathan Wallace. And here's a great (but depressing) update on George Mason's three seniors from last season.

Columnists: Wise tells big men to go to school. Dick Heller wants coaches to quit cursing. Bob Hunter says the Buckeyes can add to an overlooked tradition, or something like that. OSU student Scott Woods wants to pander that sinister young male demographic by basically telling his readers they suck. The Hoya's web site seems not to be updated, but the message board is buzzing.

Also, in the spirit of the gargantuan matchup between Big Roy and Greg Oden, the world's tallest man gets married, and I still can't find a date.

By the way, for any links, comments, questions, thoughts, personal problems, philosphical theories and/or deepest, most inner fears you'd like to share with me/the rest of the world, contact me at kilgorea@washpost.com.

Great article this morning on Hibbert, Adam. You might want to send a link to Wilbon, who asserted (sarcastically, I think) on PTI that Hibert had never played anyone over 6'7". Ironically, for thoe who watch GTown religiously, Hibbert usually plays better against someone his size...not sure if it's motivation, or maybe the refs have more tolerance for big guys fouling big guy...who knows. It might prove beneficial for Oden too, to have someone he can bang with down low.

Re: Scott Woods's article, sweet merciful crap. Can't say I was terribly impressed with the Ohio State fans when I was in Columbus, and the local media coverage was pathetically fanboyish. If that's what passes for a senior sports editor at the tOSU campus newspaper, I understand a little better why it sucked.

What's Atlanta's favorite cheese?

So is Camille not on the Georgetown beat anymore, or are you both down there?

Posted by: Cain | March 29, 2007 12:10 PM | Report abuse

Oh, Camille is very much on the Georgetown beat. She's here too, but much too busy with reporting and writing for the paper to blog. Fortunately, you'll be getting all the Camille you can handle in the daily birdcage liner.

Oh! Camille covers the Hoyas.

That makes sense.

If you go by Washington Post Live, you'd swear she had the NCAA Tournament Dietary Beat.


....And a better wardrobe than Steinberg.

I can't believe no one else caught this first:

A man named Dick Heller wants coaches to stop swearing? Come on.

Kilgore rules!
