Famed feline LB, who along with @BitchestheCat and Kiddo lives in Chicago, shows what it feels like after a day of successful NCAA predictions —

Baseball’s over, and when it ended in Cleveland on Wednesday night winter truly began. What sports, if any, will hold your attention now?
Who wins it all? It’s one game apiece now. Game 3 is tonight in Chicago.
The Cubs have a 3-2 game lead over the Dodgers in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series (after winning last night over Los Angeles 8-4).
Who wins the NLCS?
Not just a competitor, but an off-string competitor. Impressive —
Vin Scully delivers a story, flawlessly, about a snake and a baby rabbit while calling a Dodgers-Giants game. It’s hard to overstate how difficult this is.
Scully is astonishingly gifted, and worthy of the praise he’s received throughout his career.
The 2016 Summer Olympic Games open tonight. Today’s poll is a simple one: Will you watch the events?
From USA Today, here’s a Viewers Guide to the 2016 Rio Olympics with video clips about major events.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (yes, America has one) looks at the question:
The Bucks selected Sudan native Thon Maker as the No. 10 pick in the NBA draft. See, Bucks select 7-foot-1 Thon Maker at No. 10 @ JSOnline. (This year, the Bucks finished 33-49 and fifth in their division.)
Overall, looking at the whole team, do you think the Bucks will make the 2017 playoffs?
Fast, very fast –
There’s an easy way to see two different states of mind in Whitewater.
Draft a list of eleven people for an athletic honor. Make nine of the honorees athletes or coaches, and two of them an administrator and his spouse.
Now, watch and see which people receive the most prominent attention.
Some will pick one of the athletes or coaches, on the theory that it’s an athletic award.
By contrast, some will pick the administrator and his spouse, on the theory that a well-placed bureaucrat will always matter more than those who actually competed.
(In any event, whatever this second option may be, as an exercise in political rehabilitation it’s an impossibility.)
There we have the choices and states of mind in present-day Whitewater, although I’d doubt that some would even guess that choosing was possible.
One game down, at least three to go. Last year’s rematch, with this year’s question: Warriors or Cavaliers?
It’s not hard to find a poll topic this weekend. The obvious question: who wins Super Bowl 50?
Here’s Simmons on the game:
