In probably one of the greatest storylines in sports history, the underdog Georgia State Panthers upset the Baylor Bears in the 2nd round of NCAA March Madness. Not only did Georgia State upset Baylor but it was Panthers coach Ron Hunter’s son R.J. Hunter who hit this last second game winner which sent him flying off of his seat.
Georgia State ended up losing to the Xavier Musketeers in the 3rd round which lead to this postgame press conference.
A moment any proud parent can relate to. Sometimes, sports are the BEST!

A previously unreleased track from the early days of Jimi Hendrix has launched today. Long before Hendrix was setting guitars on fire, he was a sideman for Curtis Knight and the Squires who told him at the time to pretty much shut his yap, sit in the background and play guitar. Hendrix said he spent that entire time thinking about what he wanted to do in the industry. The RSVO/PPX Sessions from 1965 are set to be released March 24.
It’s been 19 years since the last bout but the wait was well worth it! Adam Sandler and Bob Barker have renewed their feud which began in the movie Happy Gilmore back in 1996. This might be the BEST thing you watch all day!
You know how some people get Married and agree to sign a prenuptial agreement? Tim Horton’s has sort of done the same with it’s “Roll Up” campaign. Tim’s has FINALLY put an end to the dispute over who wins the prize! For instance, it’s your turn to brave the -45 degree weather and crappy road conditions here in North Bay; you come back to the office with coffees and someone wins a Prepaid Visa card. Even though you went out to purchase the coffee’s, the person who rolled up was actually the one who paid money for the cup. Soooo who gets the Visa?!! A similar case happened in Quebec a few years back. A 10-year-old girl found a cup in the trash but couldn’t roll it up so she got her 12-year-old friend to help and it turned out to be a car. The mother of the girl who rolled up the rim said she was entitled to the vehicle although the courts disagreed and ended up giving the car to the 10-year-old who found the cup. Tim Horton’s is saying that in NO WAY is this “pre-cup-tual” agreement legally binding. You can check it out HERE.
