Greenberg Bets Against Duke and Loses:  Those of you who follow Mike and Mike in the Morning (Mike "Greeny" Greenberg and Mike ("ND") Golic) already know that Greeny's NCAA bracket competition with his co-host was blown when he took Michigan State over Duke.  Needless to say, he regrets that decision ... but that's no reason not to rub it in when you see him.  Another ACC tidbit ... Greeny is very Mike Greenberg close to Michael Jordan, a friendship spawned during his Chicago sports casting days.  Ask him to share some insider stories.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
