Hello World!

My team is out of the NCAA tournament. So is my backup team. Often at this time of year I am left with a perennial dilemma: do I root for the team that knocked my team out to show that my team was simply beaten by the team whose time has come, or do I root for my team's nemesis in their own division to demonstrate how tough their season has been, or do I root for my in-laws' team even though I'm sick of them dominating?

I grew up in Maryland, and although I did not attend the University of Maryland, I always rooted for the Terrapins. They were quite good for a few years, and then the program was hit by both tragedy and stupidity, and it took a long time to rebuild. A couple of years ago they were the best team in the nation; a couple of weeks ago they were ACC champions; now they're out of the dance.

Duke? I can't. They've already had enough championships. Syracuse? Beat my Terps. I'm surrounded by UConn fans. DePaul went and got itself knocked out, as did Princeton, for whom I would have rooted even though they beat my alma mater, Penn, for the Ivy title. My alternatives?

Watch hockey. And wait for the baseball season to start.

Trek Two Years Ago

  • First 'Nemesis' Photo Online
    United International Pictures released the first official image from Star Trek: Nemesis showing Captain Picard, Geordi, Riker, Worf and Data together in their crew uniforms.

  • Critics Give 'Rogue Planet' The Thumbs Down
    Words like 'Mediocre' and 'Dull' featured heavily in online reviews of Enterprise's "Rogue Planet", a "fairly bland and colourless episode."

  • Interview: Jeffrey Combs
    "He doesn't sleep any night...he's got his finger on the trigger," said actor Jeffrey Combs of playing Shran on Enterprise. "Really it's because he just doesn't want to be in anyone's back pocket or have anyone need him, from a political point of view; he wants his slate clean so he's free to do what he wants."
