FOR MARCH 2, 2015
Thank you, Alex Wolff, for giving us the Frost Heaves! My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting some of the players at church. They also exhibited Mr. Wolff's passion for this adventure. We were all winners with this team.

What an amazing blurb on the Patriots' Malcolm Butler and his rise from working at Popeyes to making the game-sealing interception in the Super Bowl. He is an inspiration to Division II players who want to continue their dreams of making it in the league.
Terry George, Buffalo
Gonzaga coach Mark Few says his players don't get into trouble? In 2007 sophomore center Josh Heytvelt and freshman forward Theo Davis were arrested for drug possession. Both got plea deals but were suspended by Few for eight months before being reinstated.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria's call to Bud Selig regarding Giancarlo Stanton's care while in the hospital is an insult to emergency rooms and medical personnel everywhere. Nobody needs to call the commissioner to ensure quality care at a hospital in Milwaukee or anywhere else.
Marlene Buechel Verona, Wis.
It feels like Gonzaga could crash into this year's Final Four, the way Wichita State and Butler have. Many fans here in Washington believe this is the year that the little school from Spokane will finally break through.
As a Minnesotan, I was thrilled to read Steve Rushin's essay The Lure of 10,000 Lakes. I have been on cloud nine since I heard Kevin Garnett was coming back. Not sure if it's just a Minnesotan thing, but Rushin really expresses how we feel about our sports here.
I find it interesting that Rushin claims everyone who leaves Minnesota almost always comes back. Tell that to the Lakers and to the Dallas Stars.
