Thursday News:

While it has been seriously slow in the news department, this piece by my friend Tom Scharpling for The Classical re-imagining every 2012 NCAA Tournament coach (including John Thompson III) as a movie villain was too excellent to not share.

I was saddened and surprised to read in the latest Princeton Alumni Weekly about the passing of Gib Kirwin '58. A supporter of this site and a contributor to the listerv that preceded it, I was always glad to hear from him. My condolences to his family and friends.

If you play MLB 2K12 and want to add a Will Venable cyberface, this creepy link should do the trick. The real life Venable finished spring training batting .349 with nine stolen bases.

Freshman Adam Jones is leaving Fairfield.

No word in either direction. If I hear anything I'll be sure to post about it right away.
