There were a few startling transformations on Sunday, sports fans.

There Mr. Monday sat on the couch with his pals, watching the Sooners in the Elite Eight when everything changed.

It wasn't a Bruce Banner "don't make me angry, you won't like me when I'm angry" moment. It was more like someone changed the extra flavor in my Dr Pepper.

In a split second, as the Sooners fell apart like a poorly maintained amusement park ride, Mr. Monday went from hoping they would keep chugging through the bracket to not caring less.

Inside Mr. Monday's brain, the future of the Thunder cried out.

The Sooners were down nearly 20, and Blake Griffin was still in the game? What is Jeff Capel thinking? Doesn't he know the NBA franchise up the road doesn't need the big fella rupturing anything? Couldn't he be the anchor of an imaginary Thunder lineup?

Is that right? Should Mr. Monday have gone all Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Sefolosha? Why not some time for "one for all and all for one?"

After all, Sunday was a nice day for the center of the Basketball universe here in the central time zone, with a tripleheader of OU men, Thunder and OU women, which caused a lot of people to have loyalties twisted up like rejects from "Battlestar Galactica."

There used to be an unwritten rule that a single person couldn't contain the rooting interest in all of these teams at once - especially if you were a member of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club.

But those days are long gone and Mr. Monday needs to keep remembering that, no matter what the draft lottery fortunes may be for the Thunder.

Next time, Mr. Monday won't worry about how Blake Griffin's health will impact the Thunder's fortunes.

After all, the way those guys have been playing lately, they'll probably miss out on picking him anyway.

But they still have a shot at Courtney Paris.
