    When did dancing become a top story in the NCAA tournament?

    Well, just like everything else TV has to find something they think is worthy of our time. They've now decided to find the best dancers in the tournament. Is this to get female viewership, is this their version of Dancing with the Stars? I may be becoming an old curmudgeon but I get tired of watching the talking heads drone on endlessly about nothing and we get to watch guys dance over and over and over. But if that's your thing I'm glad you like it.

    Well, that guy who beat Duke had some pretty sweet dance moves.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    The tournament has always been called The Big Dance. So going dancing has long been a top story in the NCAA tournament.

    1964 if I recall correctly, the year the Beach Boys released Dance, Dance, Dance.

    At precisely 9:52 this morning I made myself smile! I'll probably go back to being depressed in a few minutes.

    The weak fans did not survive the rioting, dumpster fires and couch burning after the Niang injury announcement last night. Just tough F's left here on CF!
