1. Milwaukee Bucks- According to Alice Cooper, Milwaukee comes from an Indian word meaning "the good land." It also means Bogut finally learned how to play in the NBA and Brandon Jennings is rookie of the year. The team went to the 11th seed in the weak East field to 4th in about 3 weeks. They should be able to win a first round series, but with the East possibly shaking up the next few years, the Bucks could be a top 4 team for a long time.
2. Miikka Kiprusoff- After totally falling under the spell of the zero trapezoid, Miikka came back and won the bronze, then led his NHL team to a huge win over the Red Wings last night. With a little help, the Flames could get a 6th seed in the playoffs. With a pitiful offense and a defense losing a piece in Dion Phanuef (he was playing badly for a long time anyway) Kiprusoff has to play lights out for the Flames to have a chance to go deep in the playoffs.
3. Cornell Basketball- Its cool to see an Ivy League team make the NCAA tournament. Usually these teams have poor teams and the winner of the conference gets blown out in the first round of the NCAA. But Cornell (you ever heard of them?) could play their way to the Sweet 16 in this "weakest field ever." Cinderella teams are easy to root for, and watch out for Big Red Bear this season.
