God's team: 1 ... Universe: 0

This is a big sports week. 

You got the NCAA Finals tonight (I hope both teams lose); the Masters golf tournament on Thursday; and of course the start of the baseball season.

And to that end, God's team (also known as the New York Mets) is off to 1-0 start in their quest* for the perfect season, 162-0.  And it went just as I had scripted it out: unhitable starting pitching; lights-out relief pitching; and young phenom Danny Boy Murphy cranking a dinger.

Here's to Greg Norman contending at the Masters!

* The Yankees CC Sabathia is on a quest of his own: to eat his weight in Swedish Fish.  Good luck tubby!

Did God call in picking up Gary Sheffield? Must have - he's a smart dude after all.
(Let's be honest - NCAA finals comment is just "Rutgers of NIT fame" bittnerness talking. It's ok.)

Bring on the Masters.

Somewhere in the recesses of this blog it's documented that you will respect (we’ll settle for not hate) the Yankees in 2009. I plan to hold you to your word for the next 25 weeks. You’re off to crappy start.

I will respect the yankees; but when i made that pledge, I don't believe fatso sabathia was on the team, so he's not grandfathered in.

It was painful to watch JJ Putz on the mound for the Mets instead of the Mariners...not a lot to root for here in Seattle! I'll likely be jealous all season long.
