Friday Varia and Quick Hits

We’re looking forward to another balmy early spring weekend here in North Dakotaland with temperatures kissing 50 degrees by Sunday afternoon. While I’m sure we’ll throw something on the old Weber, our eyes will be tuned to the television as the Mighty Spiders wend their way through the NIT and the rest of the basketballing elite play in the NCAA brackets. The Fighting Hawks of the University of North Dakota lost by 18 to Arizona in their first ever appearance. But if you consider that they could have scored 12% more points if not for recent budget cuts, they would have lost by a more respectable 8. On the other side of the world, I was pretty happy to see Glenn Maxwell score his maiden test century in conditions well-suited to his style of play and Steve Smith’s 178 not out is a reminder of why he is he best test batsman in the world.

So enjoy the weekend wherever you are and also enjoy this little list of quick hits and varia:
