This week was all about Big East basketball at the Garden. On Tuesday, St. John’s pulled off a first-round upset, knocking UConn out of the tournament and off the bubble. But our dream of a city team in the Big Dance officially ended Wednesday, when the Johnnies lost to Marquette. (Norm Roberts’s dream of not getting fired reportedly ended, too.) Then yesterday, things got weird: Syracuse lost, and so did Villanova and Pitt. But what happened this week that didn’t involve a student band playing “Carry on Wayward Son?”
Yankee Stadium came a-tumblin’ down.
That’s it for us this week. Have fun filling out your bracket on Sunday. (Spoiler alert: You’re going to lose your office pool to someone whose picks are based on team colors.) We’ll see you Monday.
