The N.C. State softball team defeated Georgia Tech 10-0 Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, but that wasn't the main story. A fan sitting front row next to the Wolfpack dugout? He was the star of the show.

He had nicknames and phrases for many of the N.C. State players. Here's the full list:

Alyssa Compton - "A-C", "We believe A-C!", "Pretty work, A-C!"
Molly Hutchison - "Wood", "Molls"
Tyler Ross - "T-Ross", "Good talkin' T-Ross!", "Be the boss, T-Ross!"
Maggie Hawkins - "Mags", "Hawk", "That's the Hawk!", "Be a hawk!"
Emily Weiman - "Em", "Eat 'em up, Em!"
Renada Davis (jersey #25) - "Ray", "Ray-Ray", "Nada", "2-5 you a playa!"
Hannah Yeager - "Yoggs", "Yeager bombs"
Macauley Prickett - "Mac", "Smack"
Morgan Medford - "Smash"

Shouts to no one in particular

"Be a beast!"
"Keep faith!"

Chris Webber

Mr. Webber, please share some of your insight from the Thursday games between Notre Dame/Wichita State and Kentucky/West Virginia...

"You stick with who brought you to the dance, you stick with that girl."

"You can't win a game in the first half. Just go into the locker room, put on your headphones, wash your hands, come back out."

(On West Virginia's BillyDee Williams) "Hopefully his game is as smooth as the actor"

"If you're lions, you don't worry about the complaints of a sheep"

Chris Webber Nonsense Update (C.W.N.U.) - 3/28 - Notre Dame vs. Kentucky

"You just can't all of a sudden find religion because you're in the Elite 8"

I guess my main question/concern would be: does anyone know what Chris Webber is talking about?

I watched the Milwaukee-Wright State baseball game today, and unfortunately didn't get the name of the League play-by-play man. I'm going to call him Billy because he sounded like a Billy.

Anyway, PHENOMENAL performance by Billy:

"A little droobler"
"It's a young season on the year"
"Here comes the sign from catcher, he shakes it off a little bit"
"Welcome back here to this baseball game"
"Hits a ground ball to first place"
"Once again, a first pitch swinging Panthers"
"Nick Unes, now swinging"
"It's gonna be a swing and a mount"
"He's given in two strike outs"
"Two outs in"
"Trying to get his team right back into the bench"
"First pitch of the bat"
"Looked to be a close there call"
"That's an unfortunate event"
"Looks like the catcher is OK here...we'll get right back into action"
[3 coughs] "sorry, I had something in my throat"
"Nice job by the catcher to get out of his stance and retrieve that ball"
"Looks to be a catcher, number Sean Murphy"
"Murphy will retrieve back to first place"
"The third baseman does a nice job of staying on his feet"
"Ahead in the count zero one"
"Saw the scouts down there with their radar a little excited"
"He has now reached the century mark in pitches as he pitches one hundred"
"Tyler Hermann would be the last man chance"
