Two-Minute Drill: 04/02/09

-The Final Four is set for Saturday. Connecticut will take on Michigan State during the first national semifinal and North Carolina will play Villanova during the second game. Michigan State has home-court advantage and is the first time since Duke in 1994 to play in the Final Four in its home state. 72,000 fans are expected to fill Detroit's Ford Field for each game...The Spartans are hoping that the home crowd will prov to be more of an asset that it was for the Lions.

-Richmond's national championship football team will take the field at UR Stadium on Saturday afternoon for its annual Spring Game...The tailgate crowd will probably be small, but blow-up Spidey has agreed to give up his Pig Roast to be there.

-Last Sunday, Tiger Woods came back from five strokes down to win at Bay Hill, his first win since knee surgery last summer...I hope Augusta knows his jacket size by now.

-Major League Baseball season will start Sunday when the Philadelphia Phillies host the Atlanta Braves...The Phillies' World Series win last season made them the first team ever to beat the Tampa Bay Rays and actually have a reason to celebrate.
