Here’s a good “You know he’s a rich athlete when” story: Alex Rodriguez‘s condo at 15 Central Park West for which he pays $30,000 per month in rent is on the market for $55 million. The landlord took A-Rod‘s apartment and the place next door, combined them into one giant loft and selling it for that princely sum. Curbed says the price comes out to $10,576 a square foot. Any takers?
That up there is the bracket of the person leading our RAB Bracket Busters pool thanks to 36 correct picks and 48 total points (somewhat ironically, it belongs to a person who called themselves “Bra(cket) Busters”). It’s only been one weekend, but I encourage them to gloat in the comments. You can see my disastrous bracket here; I’m tied for 13th with 33 correct picks and 43 total points. I guess that’s not too bad, considering, there’s 149 total brackets in our pool.
What are yours looking like? Feel free to tell us all in this, tonight’s open thread. The Nets are the only local team in action, but there’s also a new episode of 24 on. Talk about whatever you want, just be cool.

You can only submit one bracket, but an unlimited number of teams can join, so there’s no rush. Just make sure you sign up before the games start on Thursday. The points double each round, so you get one point for a correct pick in the first round, two in the second, three in the third, etc., for a total of 192 possible points. I don’t know as much about college basketball as I used to, but you can see my brackets here (link goes to PDF). Good luck.
On the final day of the Olympics, the gritty underdogs that are the USA hockey team will take on those big bad hosers from Canada for the gold. USA already beat Canada once in the tournament (despite being completely outplayed), and they’ve outscored their opponents 22-6 in their five games so far. Puck drops at 3pm ET on NBC, so enjoy the game and talk about it here.
