Len is clearly excited. Aren't you?
ESPN has announced its schedule for Nov. 17, the first day of college basketball (oh my God, you guys, only two months away!), and it is a doozy. I will get nothing done on Nov. 17. I will probably try to live-blog all day. Maybe I'll live blog me live blogging it, just to get really meta on you. In any case, it's going to be a long, awesome 24 hours.
