beginning of march madness and new name for edmonton's baseball team

march madness oficialy began today. no major upsets so far, but it can still happen. meanwhile yesterday, edmonton's baseball team has a new name - the capitals. the cracker-cats moniker was dropped after darryl katz bought the team from dan orlich (thank god for that). so with the new name, they're will be new front office people and hopefully al coates will be back in the radio booth. maybe mel kowalchuk will be back. a new exciting time.

update: major upset. #12 western kentucky hung on to beat #5 illinois 76-72. western kentucky had a 17 point lead with four minutes left and hung on
