Cheers
→To the Thunder fan experience. The Thunder gradually has raised the game-night presentation all season, and the giving away of three new cars Tuesday night was a nice thank you to the fans who have supported them well.

→To the passion of some baseball fans. Riding the train in St. Louis on a cold Opening Day will remind you that in some parts of the country, baseball still reigns.

Jeers
→To the instability of NBA rosters. The Thunder now has used 20 players this season. Hard to believe, but in three NBA seasons, spread over only two franchises, Oklahoma City has been home to 46 players.

→To the dud NCAA championship games. Both the North Carolina men and Connecticut women rolled to dramaless victories, a less-than-fitting end to the spectacle of March Madness.
