Regionalisms

I had seen images online of the April 6th issue of Sports Illustrated, so I couldn’t wait to get mine in the mail.

Just look at that angle of Karl-Anthony Towns in action:

But then I got my issue today. And it looked like this:

Because apparently there are no college basketball fans in the Northeast.

I mean, how could there be?  No teams from this area made the Final Four.  And there couldn’t possibly be fans of Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan State or Duke outside their state lines, right?

(Well, probably not Duke.)

Don’t worry.  I’ve already contacted SI and requested a copy of the Kentucky cover issue.  And written a letter to the editor.

March Madness only comes once a year.

The other Cup

Okay, patriotic sports fans.

It’s time for you to hurl your alcohol-soaked national pride at one of my favorite sporting events — a sport that dare I say more people watch year-round (instead of once every four years):

I’m giving you an entire day to prepare.  Gather your buddies. Pick your bar and drink of choice.  Warm up your vocal chords for the vigorous screaming that will commence.

If you’ve never experienced golf on television before, I invite you to watch these world-class players representing their countries going head-to head.

You just might find yourself screaming, beer or not beer.
