Sports columnist, Wall Street Journal. Blabbermouth, Fox Sports 1. Book LITTLE VICTORIES coming Nov. 2015 from Doubleday.

Here’s Stephen Curry’s Best Shot — A small but stunning event happened in sports the other day: Stephen Curry, the point guard for the Golden State Warriors, hit 77 three-point shots in a row. Not in a game-it occurred after a Warriors practice, but still, come on, that is nuts.

Jordan Spieth Is a Star. Now Chill — Now that 21-year-old Jordan Spieth has won the Masters, in record-setting and record-tying fashion, a familiar engine will rev-rev-rev and the most predictable ritual of American sporting life will commence: trying to stuff another new star into the Celebrity Superfactory. A small plea: Can we all just sit down, pour a few delicious Arnold Palmers over ice and chill?

Brooklyn’s Heather Hardy Gives Herself a Fighting Chance in the Ring — Here's an average morning for boxer Heather Hardy: Up in Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood at 5:30 a.m., down to Starbucks to "buy the biggest cup of coffee they have," then around the corner to Gleason's, the legendary boxing gym. At Gleason's, Hardy trains a series of clients, most of whom have regular day jobs like the rest of us.

I Still Love You, Bucky Badger — Indianapolis Arghhhhhhhhh. So this is the hazard, right? If you are going to become attached to a team, you have to accept that with the good stuff comes the heartache, and there's always more heartache than good stuff. Always.

Wisconsin vs. Duke: NCAA Live Blog — It's the national championship game. And just like everybody expected, Kentucky... isn't in it. OK, that's the opposite of what everyone thought would happen. It turns out there was a team that could beat the previously undefeated Wildcats: Wisconsin. That semifinal victory wasn't exactly pretty, but the Badgers do some remarkable things on the court.

Duke vs. Beloved Bucky Badger: A Somewhat Slanted Preview — Indianapolis Please help me out here. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to handle this. Wisconsin, my alma mater, is playing Duke for the national championship in men's basketball Monday night-after the Badgers stunned 38-0 Kentucky in the semifinals Saturday -and I'm supposed to crank out a balanced game preview for your moderate newspaper amusement.

A Break From 12 Months of the NFL — You probably saw the news that the two biggest names in this year's NFL draft (quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota) are skipping this year's NFL draft. Both guys want to be home with family, and it's hard to blame them. I know some folks get excited about the draft, but that destination wedding can be pretty snoozy.

Phil Jackson to Knicks Fans: You’re My Kind of Crazy — On Monday, Knicks president Phil Jackson wrote a letter to aggrieved season-ticket holders. Here's how Jason Gay read it. Dear Knicks Season Ticket Holder, Good day. I know you all have endured a long, cold winter in New York City, but as I write this, it is a 67-degree morning on the beach in California-not cold, but breezy enough that I need to put on a wool cardigan.

Final Four, Familiar Question: Who Stops the Cats? — After all that-after all the demolished brackets, surrendered office pools, never-ending timeouts and well-dressed coaches flailing their cuff links on the sidelines-there's really only one big question left in men's college basketball, which is the same question that's lingered all season long: Will Kentucky lose? Disclosure: This is a tricky subject for me.
