Virginia, Texas Tech, Purdue, Gonzaga Advance, Dodgers Historic Opening Day, “Baby Shark”


Four teams so far are heading into the Elite Eight. Virginia is on a redemption tour after falling to a much lower seed last year and beat Oregon to advance and take on Purdue on Saturday. In other games, Texas Tech demolished Michigan,  Purdue barely squeaked out an overtime win over Tennessee, and Brandon Clarke was the difference maker in Gonzaga’s win over Florida State. The rest of the Elite Eight teams decided on Friday.


The Los Angeles Dodgers grabbed opening day headlines with their eight home runs (an Opening Day record) in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In other opening day news, 30-year old Texas Ranger shortstop Elvis Andrus debuted his new walk-up song, and it’s a bit out of the ordinary. Andrus’ 20-month old son loves the song “Baby Shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo” and according to Andrus, “If you don’t like it, you better get used to it, it’s not going away. Hopefully ‘Baby Shark’ can hit well. … At least get me one hit a day, it’s going to stay.” So far the song seems to be working, as he hit two singles and a home run in a loss to the Chicago Cubs.
