Sports: Morning Sports Shorts 4/6 

Baylor wins women's NCAA: I could make so many off-colored jokes here, but I can't seem to pull the trigger (oops). I despise Baylor and the self-righteous attitude they employ when looking down their nose at the other Texas schools. I hope they don't intend to pimp this "title," though it's by far the most significant accomplishment in the history of Baylor's third-rate, inferiority-complex-having athletic department. That actually tells you all you need to know about them.

Lakers out of playoffs: I hear Kobe's already watching scouting tapes to prepare for the June NBA Draft.

Dickie V eyes Uconn: With players jumping to the NBA after a season or two, and with so many freshman making an instant impact, how can anyone, no matter how closely they follow college hoops, make an honest assessment of next year's title favorites, a mere ten minutes after this year's Final Four has ended?

Phil the "phavorite"?: CNNSI's Gary Van Sickle is apparently stuck in 1998. He props Phil Mickleson up as one of golf's best (you think?) and tells us to "get used to it." Even the biggest Mickleson detractors (read: me) don't still consider him a "one-Major wonder." And comparing Lefty to the L.A. Clippers is laughable. I'd rather read about Mickleson's menu choice at last night's Masters reception than another "woe is Phil" piece.
