Duke Basketball In China, Stephen Jackson's Game-Winner, And Andruw Jones: Around The Perimeter

ACC: The Duke Blue Devils are interested in playing a basketball game against the Chinese National Team in Beijing. Which joke do you go with in response to this? Something about Mike Krzyzewski being too authoritarian for the Chinese ruling party? Maybe a joke about both teams being just as ethnically diverse? Or maybe just something about Duke football? Leaning towards Duke football myself.

SEC: Urban Meyer is totally going to become an NFL coach, and soon.

Hawks: Last night Stephen Jackson, of all people, buried the most Stephen Jackson shot of all time to beat the Atlanta Hawks. Remember last year, when Josh Smith won two different games on buzzer-beater tip-ins and Jamal Crawford hit multiple game-winning threes? Is this why you just caught yourself wishing Stephen Jackson played here? It's not your fault.

Thrashers: The results are in, and the Atlanta Thrashers are statistically the chokiest team in the NHL. Obviously the team's attendance issue is still the fault of Atlanta's terrible sports fans and nothing else.

Braves: Andrew Jones' Hall of Fame campaign sort of looks like a no-brainer when you put it that way.
