Virginia's Mitchell Frank has played the deciding match for a national championship before, and with much more urgency than the Cavaliers faced in pursuit of their second NCAA men's team tennis title.
The senior came through again, finishing off a 4-1 victory Tuesday that wrapped up a second crown in three years and denied top-seeded Oklahoma its first championship.

Anyway, his fiancee Kelly Hall went to Las Vegas this weekend and the bachelorette party looks like fun.

My favorite thing to do when the tournament match up's are released is go straight to the offshore sites and wait to see how many underdogs relative to seeding end up favorites to win. It's a cheap trick that I picked up a long time ago, a way to score some points in your tourney pool without being a slave to seed lines. It's picking upsets without actually picking upsets.
Celebrities, they’re just like us!
Just look at Andy Roddick’s beautiful wife, Brooklyn Decker. She revealed on Tuesday that it isn’t glam 24/7 by showing off her three-pronged attack to tackling unwanted acne—Biore Pore Strips.
Though I’m guessing the acne that plagues us normal folk spawns more from eating too much chocolate, not going all out at an Oscars after-party...

The one and only, Andy Roddick, is back for another great podcast visit. Of course he has to hear some early work of CKDJ's Dan O'Toole.
Plus, remembering the greatness of Rocket Richard. And don't miss Schrager's inside take on Deflate-Gate in New England.
This is one episode that's music to your ears!

And even Brooklyn Decker joins in the conversation sharing some of her best and worst Christmas traditions.
Remember when your elementary school forced your parents to shell out $15 for a recorder so you could make cacophonous noises in class for like two weeks? I’m not sure if that’s still a thing, but if it isn’t, Andy Roddick’s bae Brooklyn Decker is definitely trying to bring it back.

However, a lot of our fears don’t compare with some of the bizarre phobias of athletes. Take the newly retired Derek Jeter for example. The former New York Yankees shortstop revealed one of his own fears to the...
