Sports brief

This will get me hauled before the House Committee on Un-American Activities (J. Parnell Thomas, Chairman), but--I haven't watched a single game of the NCAA tournament.

Update: No, its name wasn't the "House Un-American Activities Committee." It was just cooler (and easier) to say HUAC ("Hugh-ack") than to say HCUA ("Hih-kuh-ooh-ahh"). Did you notice, though, what the bio of Thomas I linked to called it? The "House of Un-American Activities" Committee.

Update II: Several people have claimed that "Hih-huh-ooh-ahh" is actually Ward Churchill's Indian name. Wrong! It's Kenis. Or maybe Keezjunnahbeh.
