They say that the third time is the charm, right? The second attempt at NHL hockey in Atlanta certainly wasn’t.

About time to get off that black coffee study diet and onto that Whiiite. Big events happened in the sporting world since my last post — the Masters, the NFL draft and lockout, the NBA and NHL playoffs and MLB season started, Kentucky Derby, and, most importantly, India won the Cricket World Cup — but law school doesn’t allow much time for blogging. I’ll now take my pretentious cap off and give you 3 reasons why you should care about perhaps the best domestic sports league in the world, the English Premier League (yes, Greg, that’s soccer.)
It’s been a minute since I hopped on a That Whiiite post, and I’m not about to write a full-length feature just yet, but here are my predictions for the Elite 8, Final Four, and Nat’l Championship. It’s too bad DJ Kennedy of St. John’s was lost for the season in the Big East Tourney — I would have enjoyed seeing a Johnnies run in the Big Dance, but a first round exit to the Adam Morrisons is more likely than an Elite Eight appearance for the Queens squad.
New Yorkers have sports options. If you grew up within an hour of New York City, chances are you have friends who are Jets fans or Giants fans, Yankees fans or Mets fans. The Devils take some shine away from the Rangers. But the Knicks are uniquely New York’s team. (What? There’s a team called the Nets?)
Whoa, a hell of a divisional round.
The weekend started with the Steelers erasing a 21-7 halftime deficit to defeat rival Baltimore. With less than two minutes to go in the fourth, and the score tied at 24, Ben Roethlisberger tossed a 58-yard dime to rookie Antonio Brown, which set up Rashard Mendenhall’s go-ahead score. Three turnovers in the 3rd quarter and huge drops by WR acquisitions Anquan Boldin (in the endzone) and TJ Houshmanzadeh (on 4th down) ensured that the Steelers escaped with a 31-24 victory.
