Want to hear a cool name? Try “Machado.” Now many of you are probably confused as to why I would share a cool name with you. Granted, the vast majority of you are already aware of plenty of cooler names. For example, God’s Gift Achiuwa. And though God’s Gift is having a stellar freshman campaign for a very young St. John’s team, a man by the name of “Machado” is absolutely stealing the show in the MAAC (Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference). Currently, the Gaels sit atop the “Mighty MAAC (it is not really mighty but I like the sound of the expression)” and are a likely tournament team.
Now many of you are probably still scratching your heads as to where I am going with this. Well a few weeks ago, I had the distinct pleasure of introducing you all to Creighton star, Doug McDermott. A star that is making it rain from long-range in Omaha like Kyle Korver did back in 2002/2003.

The Garden was simply “Linsane” yesterday as Jeremy Lin led the Knicks to a huge home victory over the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Michigan finally exacted some revenge on their bitter rival, Ohio State, handling Sullinger and Co. in Ann Arbor for the first time in a long time (previously had lost 7 straight to the Buckeyes). And pitchers and catchers began reporting to warm and beautiful cities across the country. This past week was absolutely wild, but the current week should be some fun too. Here are the events to keep an eye on.
5. Is it 1994 all over again? For the first time in a long time, both the Rangers and Knicks are contenders at the same time (granted the Knicks are only 500, but winners of 8 of 9). The Rangers currently possess the best record in the East, while the Red Wings have been simply unbeatable as of late, winning six straight games, and 23 straight at home. This week my attention is focused on a marquee matchup in Pittsburgh tomorrow night. Continue reading
