I just opened my Sports Illustrated from two weeks ago and started running through it. Little did I know there was a story on the Rays, centering on Delmon Young, Elijah Dukes and B.J. Upton. The story predicts big things for Tampa Bay in a few years and includes a mock 2010 SI cover calling the Rays "the best team in baseball."
The issue is the March Madness preview. Obviously, I should have opened it earlier ... particularly since I tagged Wisconsin as the national champ in my bracket.
UPDATE: With the Final Four now set, let it be known that there was only one person in our office bonding experience that went 0-for-4 -- me. I would like to thank Wisconsin, Texas A&M (my runner-up), Kansas and North Carolina for the honor.
