    I was watching Louisville game and saw Ware's injury. Just horrible. Wishing him a good recovery and pray he is resting well tonight.

    Poor Ware. That is the worst basketball injury I have ever seen. I wondered if there was any danger of him bleeding out with a break that bad and an open wound?? Also how much would adrenaline helped with the pain with a break that bad? I think Ware is one brave, young man.

    RE: Kevin Ware's injury -- I have never been so glad that I have a very small, very low resolution TV with not-great off-air reception. I couldn't really see anything, except that he was on the ground, but the reactions of his teammates, coach, and even the Duke contingent were bad enough. I just saw a report that he was up walking around on crutches today and I hope he makes a complete recovery and can play again.

    Unless he had serious damage to a major artery, I guess it's not surprising that the blood loss was manageable even with a gruesome-looking injury - I mean, compound fractures aren't that much of a rarity, and I don't believe that's normally a risk. Also, Ware got immediate medical attention, and if the situation were critical I'm sure he'd have been taken to a hospital even faster.

    I'm glad that it's not expected to be career-ending. When the names that come up in the context of a sports injury include Joe Theismann and Napoleon McCallum, you pretty much fear the worst.

    There's also not a lot of blood flow in the lower leg. That's why fractures in that area take a (relatively) long time to heal. When I broke the tibia in my left leg a few years ago (closed fracture, no broken skin), I was told 12 weeks, with the potential to start weight-bearing at 6 weeks. For me, it was 9 weeks on crutches and full healing took quite a bit longer. But I also discovered during that time that I had a Vitamin D deficiency, which may have had something to do with it.

    I couldn't skate for 6 months but it took longer than that to be able to do turns on my left foot. My doctor was cautious.

    Wishing Kevin Ware a speedy and full recovery and hope he can get back on the court in time to play next season! And I hope he's got some strong pain meds for the trip to Atlanta with the team.

    Watching an interview with Kevin Ware as he talks about what happened in the game where he broke his leg. He said it didn't really hurt cause he was in shock. He was remarkably composed, until the end of the interview when he teared up talking about his teammates. Good luck to him - I hope he recovers completely and hope he doesn't become one of those players whose career is filled with injury after injury. I'm sure you can find the interview on ESPN's website.

    Congrats to Louisville for winning the NCAA National title. What an awesome day for Rick Pitino! First the Naismith Basketball Hall of fame; later in the evening the National championship.

    I will acknowledge Pitino to be a very good basketball coach, even if his off the court personal judgment/behavior has been rather suspect at times.

    Thank you. And our women play in the Final tonight against UConn.

    I went to high school with that woman. She's a nutcase. Not defending Pitino's behavior, but I suspect she had this agenda all along. Rick honey, learn to say NO.

    Nutcase or not, agenda or not, Rick knowing when to say "no" to some of his drinks that night probably would have increased the likelihood that he would have kept his pants zipped.

    That was a romp.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    It was, wasn't it? Largest margin ever in a final, but it was UConn, a traditionally strong program.

    But just making it to the final when they weren't expected to makes their fans very proud. There is a celebration tonight honoring both the men's and women's teams.
