That's pretty much the message the Stanford men's basketball team sent to their counterparts from Cornell at the Honda Center in Anaheim today. As expected, the Big Red fell to the Cardinal, 77-53. What I didn't expect was for the team to celebrate its first return to the Big Dance in twenty years by leaving its shooting touch in Ithaca. Thirty percent from the field will not get it done at any level.

As bad as that result was, it means only that the weekend has gotten off to a less-than-ideal start. Men's hockey faces off against Harvard in an ECAC semifinal in Albany tomorrow night; and on Sunday, women's basketball makes their first NCAA Tournament appearance ever. Yeah, there is that small detail of having to play Connecticut - in Bridgeport - but we can be optimistic, can't we (even though maybe we shouldn't)?

Vantage Point, which I saw Wednesday night, was by no means great, but still pretty good. There were too many questions left unanswered at the end of the movie. I was convinced that the terrorists were going to succeed until about ten minutes before the end of the movie.

Day one of shift work wasn't so bad. The really good part came well before work - at 7:30 in the morning. When I heard my alarm, I knew I didn't have to make a hurried rush out the door; it was wonderful to leisurely pour myself a glass of orange juice and a bowl of cereal. I think I'm going to really like this 2 p.m. to midnight shift thing.
