Brave New World:
You know things are out of whack in college basketball when Connecticut and Kentucky can meet in the NCAA men’s finals and have the journeys to get there described as “Cinderella” like.
Oh and by the way, it might be racist to refer to the Kentucky basketball team as “athletic.” So mind what you say and think or you could be brought up on thought crime charges.

Things to Keep an Eye on:
The South El Monte Eagles softball team overcame a 3-2 deficit with a three run sixth inning to defeat Arroyo 5-2 last Wednesday. The Eagles Amanda Lopez was solid in the field while driving in two runs.
South El Monte followed that win with a 7-2 victory over Gabrielino on Friday. Ashley “Smashley” Diaz went four for four with two home runs and three runs batted in from her spot at shortstop. The Eagles are a perfect 5-0 in league, 7-4 overall.
Are there any Olympic Games this year? It seems like every few months there is an Olympic Game…Kind of like country music award shows.

4/12: Former El Monte lineman, Rosemead Principal, current Mt. View Principal Larry Cecil turns 52.
