Alright, boys and girls.

Today's a big kind of day around those Syracuse parts. (No, it's not "Snowblower Day," thank God. The city is in "Construction Season," obviously, although that does often overlap with "Snowblower Day." Regional weather and daily life humor . . . this is the apex of professional blogging, people.)

Down in Philadelphia, John Desko and his merry clan of "WIN A FREAKIN' FACE-OFF AND STOP RUINING MY LIFE" face St. John's in the Big East Tournament Championship. St. John's is a school of higher education, in case you didn't know, and has a lacrosse team capable of making you want to throw things and curse in front of children. If the Orange brain farts through 60 or more minutes of play, you can pretty much kiss goodbye any chance of watching Syracuse play next weekend in the NCAA Tournament, slotting the 2012 season somewhere in the recesses of history where 2007 currently takes up residence and happiness maintains a perfectly maintained tombstone.

ESPNU and ESPN3 have the telecast starting at noon, so make sure that the beer is cold and that you have lots of breakable things in your general vicinity. College Crosse has all kinds of background information on Syracuse and the tournament proper, so dazzle your mind with incredible feats of wordsmithing.

In the Carrier Dome, your 26,329-0 (estimated record) Orange ladies are primed to take home its third Big East Tournament Championship as they square off against those dastardly scamps from Loyola. (I have no idea if the Greyhounds are dastardly. It feels right, though.) Gary Gait's womenly laxers are on a 15-game winning streak, which is just about the coolest thing that isn't your frosty brews awaiting your consumption. Syracuse is looking like, at a minimum, a top-two seed in the NCAA Tournament -- Will they leap-frog those damn Methodists from Northwestern? -- and might just be the best team on campus that isn't lead by Jim Boeheim.

CBS Sports Network has the broadcast starting at 1:00, but tickets only cost $8 ($4 for youths under 14 and free for seniors, Big East students, infants under five, and the participants in the game) so go stimulate the American economy, you adorable consumer, and pull for Gary Gait's band of mercenaries.

This is your open thread for the day. Make the magic happen, people.
