The NCAA basketball tournament is wide-open in a way that no other major American sporting event is. Hence its nickname “March Madness.” But if you were to single out the other distinguishing characteristics of the tourney, they would be the brackets that everyone is so fond of filling out and the fact that a good chunk of the games takes place when folks are supposed to be at work.
The big budget update of ‘The Lone Ranger’ won’t hit theaters until the summer of 2013. But the first official images of the film were just released on producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s Twitter account, offering a peek at Johnny Depp as one of the most iconic sidekicks in pop culture history.
Peyton Manning and Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay held a press conference Wednesday in which Irsay announced that the Colts were cutting Manning, the greatest sports figure Indianapolis has ever seen, rather than pay him a $28 million roster bonus.

The world record for the fastest-solved Rubik’s Cube is 5.66 seconds, set last year by Feliks Zemdegs. When you see a speedcuber like Zemdegs do his thing, you realize that he is approaching the puzzle in an entirely different way than you would.
That goes double for watching Marcell Endrey, who just set the world record for finishing a Rubik’s Cube blindfolded, which is now 28.8 seconds. Watch Endrey complete this remarkable feat at last week’s Zonhoven Open.
