For several colleges and universities, today is the final day of classes before finals begin next week.

UK is still going very hard after Michael Sanchez. No idea yet as to if he will enroll anywhere other than prep school in the fall of 2007.
"He felt he needed another year of development whatever (college) he went to," said Bill Ingram, who coached Sanchez for the Arkansas Hawks AAU team. "One thing he told me is he's still going to prep school. That's what he's committed to doing. But he said he might change his mind."
Sandy Koufax was drafted yesterday by the Modi’in Miracles.
Power-hitting outfielder Aaron Levin was the first player selected in the Israel Baseball League's inaugural draft. The Modi’in Miracles made Levin, 22, from Contra Costa Community College in California, the first pick in the draft, held Thursday night in New York City.

With the final pick of the draft the Miracles chose Sandy Koufax, the former Los Angeles Dodger left-hander and Hall of Famer, who famously refused to pitch in a World Series game that fell on Yom Kippur.

It's unclear whether Koufax would actually suit up for the Miracles. "His selection is a tribute to the esteem with which he is held by everyone associated with this league," the team’s manager, former big leaguer Art Shamsky, told The Associated Press. "It's been 41 years between starts for him. If he's rested and ready to take the mound again, we want him on our team."
Jonathan Miller picked up another endorsement.

I don't understand why non-Jews are joining a Jewish dating service.
