*Hats off to Rutgers head basketball coach Mike Rice for taking the high road yesterday afternoon after sloppy, LAZY and unprofessional referees screwed Rutgers out of a chance to beat St. John's. There are bad calls that happen but indifferent referees (Jim Burr, Tim Higgins and Earl Walton should NEVER be allowed to referee ANY Big East games again such was their epic fail) should not be a part of the NCAA college game. Rice taught his team a valuable lesson in losing with grace yesterday.
*The Jersey City Council last night unanimously approved a $477 million 2011 municipal budget that city officials say will come with no municipal tax hike.
*Both Jersey City and Bayonne are pretty sure they will not have the same drunken and out of control St. Patrick's parades that plague Hoboken yearly.
