Chris Chamberlain Watching 24/7 Pacquiao Bradley. Big fight tonight, anyone think Bradley has a chance? #PacBradley

Jeff DuncanA new suggestion for a Hornets name change in the letters to the editor section of the Times-Picayune: The New Orleans Apostles. Thoughts?

Jeff Duncan I'll forward to Benson RT @ChankTheFiddler: I think the new Hornets name should be either "New Orleans Gris-Gris" or "Louisiana Loup Garou"!

Doug MoutonMason Katz delivers. LSU takes game one.

Reid G. Mason Katz, bitches!

Grandmaster WangWelp, that happened.

Grandmaster WangI love Paul Mainieri in pretty much precisely the same way I love Les Miles.

Grandmaster WangBy the way, all the respect to Stony Brook. Those dudes are pretty f****** awesome.

Jeff Duncan Agreed but can't see Benson picking it. RT @MarcailM: I still love the @dirtycoast suggestion of the NOLA Bounce.

Jeff DuncanNo. League requires about a 2-year window. RT @ScottandEmily: would this name change happen before this next season? #savemyjerseymoney

Grandmaster WangGoing into game 2, @SBerhtiaumeESPN "Alec Box" count currently stands at 9.

Bradley HandwergerSeriously love the way the Dutch seamlessly move the ball around and find holes for shots. (HansDat note: I'm not even going to touch that statement.)

Johnny PatrickNeed to watch this fight tonight!!!!!!
