Today is a busy day and it's only 10am. Looks like the University of North Carolina has gotten rid of men's basketball coach Matt Doherty. Okay so he "resigned," same difference. He always had that mean, "good coach" look to him, but he definitely never brought about any results. I have been a Tarheel fan for as long as I can remember, but the past few years I must say I've paid little to no attention to them just because they've sucked so bad (with the exception of their games against Duke, which are a must see no matter what the situation). Come March I take a look at the tournament, see they're not there, and suddenly lose interest in college hoops as a whole...until the next year. Let's hope they can track down a winning coach and get UNC back up to par with what good ol' Dean Smith started.

And now on to the war. I have to say that in my mind, the biggest celebrity to come out of the war thus far has to be Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf. This guy cracks me up! First he was talking about the American military, calling them "gangsters" and how he was going to "slap" their faces and "kick their backsides." Okay, so that's a good way to get your country fired up, which I understand is what he is trying to do. However, now he's gotten to the point where he is flat-out denying that the U.S. is closing in on Baghdad and has gone off on this whole thing about "booby trap" pens and pencils! This guy is a riot. Why oh why does SNL have to be airing re-runs lately? I am dying to see some of the impressions they'd do of al-Sahaf and some of the other "celebrities" of this war.
