"Kentucky fan already has 2015 national champs tattoo"

Molly Geary, Extra Mustard

"Kentucky fans have a lot of reasons to be confident. The Wildcats are 34-0 heading into their first NCAA tournament game on Thursday night and Las Vegas oddsmakers have given them 6/5 odds to win it all.

Winning it all would give Kentucky a perfect 40-0 season, and one fan in particular is confident his team will achieve it. How confident? He's already tattooed it on his body."

"Matthew Wuest poured his heart into his work.

The former Metro Halifax sports reporter and CapGeek founder was always the one writing the stories, often shying away from having stories written about him.

Wuest died during the early morning hours Thursday at Victoria General Hospital in Halifax, wife Melanie Patten by his side, following a two-and-a-half year battle with colon cancer."

Derek Flack,

"It might be an old joke, but it's one that's gaining a lot of traction around the country as the Toronto Maple Leafs spiral further down the NHL standings. Bars around the country are advertising free beer, but the catch is that the offer is only available during Leafs playoffs games. Ba-dum pshhh."

High School Lacrosse Goalie Scores Incredible 77-Yard Goal

Kevin Draper, Deadspin

"With time running out in the third quarter of a game against Boulder (Co.) High School, Wheat Ridge HS goalie Nolan Hector hurled the ball as far down the field as he could. Amazingly, his 77-yard shot went in with 0.7 seconds remaining in the quarter."

WATCH: Kyle Turris sets up Senators OT winner with incredible play

Adam Gretz, CBS Sports

"You're forgiven if Senators-Hurricanes wasn't at the top of your viewing list on Tuesday night, but the two teams actually played a pretty entertaining overtime period. It ended when Mark Stone scored his 18th goal of the season for the Senators to give them a 2-1 win, but the actual goal isn't the best part of this play.

It's the move that Kyle Turris made to set Stone up so all he had to do was tap it into an empty net."
