    The "talking heads" sports commentators have been running wild with this "sledgehammer" story, hyping it to no end.....I finally caught the story this morning and noted that the "sledgehammer" is simply a small rubber mallet.....the type you use on wood flooring.........but NO ONE,,,,, NO ONE has called it what it actually is YET.....hype, hype, misleading hype. Yes, I know.... theat's what sports really is anyway.......

    Perhaps the MALLET did the job to get a point accross but to me, it is just another way to make something larger than itself.... kinda like a mallet on steroids. So typical.....hype anything and everything.

    Sorry for the rant..... coffee level was reaching a saturation peak when I viewed the story.....LOL

    I heard about it on Sports Center this morning. Nobody will be talking about it after UNC beats them, so it will go away quickly.

    For those who don't know -- after Michigan State lost in the conference tournament, the coach took them in the film room as if they would watch the film of them getting beaten up on. Instead he pulled out a mallot and destroyed the tape. This was supposed to symbolize the beginning of a new season, or something like that.

    Michigan State will beat UNC and then lose to Illinois.
