View of the Day: Midnight Madness

What an unbelievable weekend in sports!  Lincecum/Halladay, Yankees/Rangers Game 2, Badgers/Buckeyes, Arkansas/Auburn, and then a whole bunch of NFL games on Sunday.  With everything going on it is probably a surprise to many that the college basketball season began yesterday as many programs held their annual Midnight Madness festivities.  One such program was St. John’s, whose hiring of a new coach, Steve Lavin, has renewed optimism for fans of the Red Storm.  Can Coach Lavin keep the homegrown high school talent in the city and eventually have a shot at competing in the Big East?  One of many storylines heading into the 2010-2011 college basketball season.  For now, the MLB playoffs and football take center stage.  Enjoy the view!

Wisconsin Football: Come for the Football, Stay for the Food

Everyone in Wisconsin is nice.  It’s a fact.  All you doubters out there need to spend a fall weekend in Madison and check out a Badger football game at Camp Randall Stadium.  This image comes from my cousin, a UW junior, who was in attendance for the game vs Arizona State (Badgers 20-19 on a blocked extra point in the last minutes of the 4th quarter).  While in “Madtown”, make sure you grab yourself a beer, New Glarus: Moon Man is my new favorite, and a brat.
