Early Wednesday hotness...

Actually for many of you, this would be Tuesday night hotness. I'm getting it out early cause I'll be out of commission for a lot of Wednesday. Apparently the bigwigs want to visit the station and say goodbye to me, and have meetings about the future of the station without me. And they want to buy lunch and dinner. Can't complain about that.

So some quick stories for you to chew on...

- Niagara gets the play in win. No surprise. Enjoy your date with Kansas.

Anyone think Niagara can upset Kansas? Knowing Kansas' recent history, does it sound out of the question?

Actually, it probably is. Forget I brought it up.

- In a non-sports story...

101 year old woman mugged in NYC

This apparently has the entire city up in arms to catch this douchebag who robbed the old lady for $33 bucks in her apartment.

I have a solution.

ElPadrino... get some of your boys together and find this punk. Beat him down like you own him. I know we can count on you.

- So the Pittsburgh Penguins will stay in Pittsburgh.

Do you care?

- By Michael Jordan in effect making Bernie Bickerstaff a lame duck coach now, I think he's trying to ensure his team tanks for lottery ball position. Which goes completely against everything Jordan stood for as a player.

So he wants to bring in his selection for coach next year, whomever that is. I have a guess.

Ladies and gentlemen... the head coach of the 2007-2008 Charlotte Bobcats... Charles Oakley.

That's all I got. Last day of real work before the Madness begins tomorrow and productivity in America drops 79%.

El Padrino said...

ok state sucks

ToddPacker said...

florida doesn't play until fri at 9:40... so it looks like i won't coming down with any mysterious illnesses in the next 2 days, i'll be here at work/lov... thur/fri should easily be 1000 comment days

El Padrino said...

i'll be here
but operation "going to bar for long lunches" will be in effect

ToddPacker said...

no doubt, ep... loooooong lunches

ToddPacker said...

today's early post is very un-rev-like

El Padrino said...

true
very un-tyson like

whocares said...

T-minus 28 hours til tipoff, and bossman just told me he wont be here tomorrow or most of Friday.


Jackpot.

ToddPacker said...

you're golden, wc

El Padrino said...

stay away from kansas
SG has them to win the whole show

ToddPacker said...

think about if holy cross pulls a george mason this year... sg will be out of control with extra lameness

El Padrino said...

he's got them in the sweet 16

it's so ridiculous

El Padrino said...

be out for a few hours

meeting

temwr said...

Rock me Amadeus.

I'm not sure anyone's said that here before.

ToddPacker said...

might be a 1st, tem

Mills said...

remember on friday or whenever when SG said that he was writing a column that turned out to be too hard, and it would make more sense when he posted it later on in the week? was he full of it?

when is that column coming out?

how difficult of a column is it?

temwr said...

it'll be a struggle for me to bring stuff to the table today.

my mind and body thinks it is thursday, and then when i find out it is only wednesday i get sad.

your paternal parent said...

sup ho's

ToddPacker said...

tem is sad

whocares said...

SG has Holy Cross losing in the second round, not the shweet 16.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

mills, that was monday's column, i think.

ben said...

I'll save tem the effort of a running diary today.

SG sucks

whocares said...

I think there are going to be a lot of pools around the country that end in ties.


It seems like everyone has the same 3 or 4 schools winning it all.

ben said...

He has Holy Cross upsetting SIU? That's hilarious.

whocares said...

I currently have G'town winning it all and I cant name more than one player off of their team.


Not a good sign.

your paternal parent said...

u talk thai? u my brotha!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Does Simmons have ALL of the 12s winning?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Nevermind. He wrote this column like a retard.

Beth82678 said...

WC, if you can't name more than 1 player on G'town's team that's still one more than me and I also picked them to win it all.

Then again I've got women's intuition going for me... :-)

whocares said...

Yeah, why didnt he break it down another way? It's confusing as shit to read that article.

I had to have a bracket handy to see who he was picking.

temwr said...

tem SG diary:

10:18 - SG is listing teams that will lose in the tourney, basically counting down to the winner.

10:19 - SG thinks Big 10 will flop. I agree although I like Ohio State and Wisc. and I really do think Ill. can do some damage. So in summary fuck you SG.

10:20 - SG sends Kentucky out early. Probably doing this just because the media has slobbed UKs knob all year.

10:21 - SG sends Marquette, Vandy, Tenn and Duke out early. Nobody cares, except Steve who should be happy because if SG says Duke is out early then they are hitting the Elite 8.

10:22 - SG homer pick of Holy Cross over Souther Ill. I can't say anything I picked WVU to go to Big East title game. Something tells me though that HC will not take SI to double OT ala the Mountaineers v. UL. Of course HC is in the NCAA and WVU in the NIT so I should be quiet now. I guess.

10:24 - Memphis and Wisc do not make SG sweet 16. OK whatever dude. I buy the Memphis thing, but Wisc. ain't bad. Memphis might be awesome, nobody knows.

10:25 - Long Beach St. and VCU lose in sweet 16. SH needs to make sure SG slows down on the crack pipe. He is getting a little too upset happy.

10:27 - SG tosses out UNC in sweet 16 because Durant will "rape" them. OK he didn't say rape, but he wanted to.

10:28 - SG Final 4. A&M, Florida, Kansas, G'Town.

10:29 - SG Championship Kansas over G'Town.

10:29 - SH picks aparently today.

OK so he could have just posted his bracket. He brought nothing to the table joke wise and nothing was really that outlandish. HC is kinda crazy, but he is a homer, we all know that. This article made me sad.

ben said...

the reason he wrote it this way is because he has a really big and complex article coming tomorrow that he has been working on and couldn't get finished for today.

ben said...

With the SH article, hopefully she gets to write it so there are some funny jokes in it.

ben said...

So SG picks are basically exactly the same as all the other analysts....

ben said...

the teams that always talk about being disrespected and getting to low of a seed, are the ones that get bounced in the first round. Not make a run...does SG even watch college basketball?

ben said...

How about Drexel, they're my favorite to win the NIT because of the NCAA snub....oh wait...nevermind.

Mills said...

"mills, that was monday's column, i think."

wasn't monday just a blog entry? did i miss something...

Mills said...

"the teams that always talk about being disrespected and getting to low of a seed, are the ones that get bounced in the first round."

absolutely true.

Mills said...

pretty slow day today so far. everyone saving up energy for tomorrow and friday?

ToddPacker said...

bill blows

ToddPacker said...

i'm trying to get extra work done today so i can weasel out of work on thur/fri

your paternal parent said...

hey my man, what it look like?

ben said...

Yeah, gotta finish up the TPS today, so i have clear sailing.

ToddPacker said...

only guy on g-town i know is p. ewing's kid

ben said...

Only guy I know on Ohio State is Oden, and they're a 1 seed.

ToddPacker said...

thank you to ypp and ben for breaking up my natty

temwr said...

i know a lot of g'town players because i am a big east fan.

otherwise i wouldn't know them either. ewing's kid isn't that good. especially compared to his old man.

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

My final 4:

TX
the OSU
Pitt
WI

TX over WI in the finals 158 tps(total points scored not the reports keeping me on lockdown)

temwr said...

i just now found out that Richard Jeni died.

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

Ewing had a kid at Indiana too and he sucked. Is this the same kid? Did he transfer?

your paternal parent said...

welcome to the board, tem.

ben said...

see what happens when you go to the bahamas, you're 3 days behind all the news stories.

whocares said...

I just had the same problem as Zeke. Found out MMOD is nazid. W-T-F. It wasnt nazid last year, why this year?


I was planning on getting some work done today, but I may lower my output in protest. The Man aint gettin shit out of me until next Monday. Suck it.

your paternal parent said...

dell curry's kid is in the tournament too. dont know if thats been mentioned yet by the analysts.

(that is sarcasm, because they love pimping former player's kids.)

ben said...

I'm not nazi'd on the MMOD, but I can't get the video to stream, keeps timing out, so in effect, i'm in the same boat.

your paternal parent said...

more and more are slowly feeling my pain of the MMOD cockblock.

welcome to the fold.

ben said...

I read an article on Dell curry's kid a few months ago, he turned down some bigger schools to stay close to home. Plus isn't Davidson like "the princeton of the south" or something like that.

temwr said...

Doc Rivers kid is on G'Town.

I think. Either that or Pitt.

I am pretty sure G'Town.

whocares said...

I'm thisclose to calling the head Bossman "Hitler" over this incident.

Nazi the porn, Hitler. That I can understand. But MMOD? You mafuggin crazy?

ToddPacker said...

what about darryl strawberry's kid... he's still on maryland

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

Plus isn't Davidson like "the princeton of the south"

That's like Stansbury being the "Harvard of the West"

whocares said...

To: Hitler

You're getting zero out of me tomorrow and Friday, so at least let me enjoy my eight hours of non-work.

florida is the king of former-athlete-dads... noah, horford and green

your paternal parent said...

mvn.. i knew it. i could feel it.

your paternal parent said...

good thing mvn was here to get it right though.

ben said...

*16 hours?

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

North West South or East there is only one Harvard

Keith S said...

Did MVN just drop a Saved By the Bell line?

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

2 of them keith, 2 of them

temwr said...

Ewing kid is same kid. He transferred out of Indiana because he sucked.

whocares said...

You have to say it right, MVN.

It's HHHHHHHaaaaaavaaaaad.

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

wc - I didn't have my pipe so i wasn't going all out with the "Harvard" but you're right.

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

Seems like there should be more peeps in the tourney pick'em.

ben said...

"Harvard of the South" is also a commonly used colloquialism, and one humorous essay [5] asserts that "there are two dozen Harvards of the South distributed among the states that seceded to form the Confederacy. Of those eleven states, only Alabama does not claim to have a single HotS ['Harvard of the South']."


Auburn isn't the Harvard of the South?

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

It's prank wars week with Valley. I better get to work. Hope to check in later with one kidnapped bulldog.

The Rev said...

OK... maybe Drexel didn't get screwed after all.

TPS prisoner formerly MVN said...

Auburn is the Vandy of Alabama...except much better at sports. Seriously I would think they have to be #2 in academics in the SEC though. Kentucky #3 maybe?

I'm out for a while.

temwr said...

academix is overrated.

whocares said...

MVN,

Watch out for Valley, they may try and fill your mascot suit with ants.

But you'll show them by breakdancing like a maniac with ants in your suit.


Silly Valley Kids.

temwr said...

the SBTB knowledge here is off the charts.

whocares said...

Nah,

Auburn aint quite #2 in the SEC, but it's probly in the top half. Bama is known for their law school mostly, and Auburn is known for its engineering and building science/architecture schools.



Neither have a strong claim as a "Harvard of Anything"

ToddPacker said...

"Auburn is the Vandy of Alabama...except much better at sports. Seriously I would think they have to be #2 in academics in the SEC though. Kentucky #3 maybe?"

actually i think florida is number 2 in the sec

ToddPacker said...

are sbtb reruns still on?

whocares said...

I spent one year at a CC playing baseball. It was commonly refered to as "Harvard on the Highway" or "Yale by the Trail".


Dont know if that counts for anything.

ben said...

Auburn has a great Vet school too, if you want to help sick animals.

ToddPacker said...

i just got my call from my doctors office... prostate is OK... cholesterol is high 186... I thought anything under 200 was good

your paternal parent said...

im gonna set up a fantasy SBTB league...

your paternal parent said...

timmy h wants to
really prove it.


hes coming out of the closet slowly but surely..

ben said...

why does hardaway think that gay people are going to blow his shit up? They're not the KKK.

Isiah Thomas said...

woo woo

THIS IS NOT A GAME PEOPLE.

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP, how you feel about losing jay feely

Isiah Thomas said...

Suns vs Mavs tonight.

ToddPacker said...

i was trying to remember the name of the band from sbtb and went to wiki. this might be too much sbtb knowledge from even for wiki:

The following are the SAT scores for the gang:
Zack - 1502
Screech - 1220
Jessie - 1205
Lisa - 1140
Kelly - 1100
A.C. - 1050


ac was pretty dumb

ben said...

wasn't the band's name "the Zack attack" or something like that

ToddPacker said...

yea,i think you're right ben

Spaceman Spiff said...

zack outscored screech and jessie?

Spaceman Spiff said...

and screech and jessie got some low ass scores for valedictorian-esque students

your paternal parent said...

timmy h, please die.

i hate fat little round-headed black basketball players from UTEP. i dont they should be allowed in the lockerroom around me. they shouldnt be allowed in the USA or tha wurld!111!!!

ben said...

Every SBTB episode summary

your paternal parent said...

zack had mad amounts of natural smarts.

plus he knew enough to carry a massive cell phone, which always impressed the ladies.

ben said...

1502 on the SAT made me laugh even way back then. You can't get an "02" for your score.

ToddPacker said...

nice work, ben

Isiah Thomas said...

I refuse to believe the man that gave us MVEMJSUNP would score below Zach.

your paternal parent said...

i often reference Jessie and her pills when dealing with a time limit.

whos wit me?

ben said...

Jessie was so deflated by scoring lower then Zack that she moved to Vegas to become a showgirl.

ToddPacker said...

"i'm so excited"

your paternal parent said...

i gotta look at this damn bracket at some point.

ToddPacker said...

MVEMJSUNP

please advise

Spaceman Spiff said...

i'm so excited, im so... so scaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaared

Isiah Thomas said...

This afternoon will be devoted exclusively to my bracket.

ToddPacker said...

lunch

Isiah Thomas said...

MVEMJSUNP

Zach had to learn the order of the planets, Screech came up with this to help him remember.

whocares said...

The band was originally the "Zack Attack", but then broke up and went their separate ways. Zack went solo, Kellie was an actress on a soap operah, Lisa went on to become an American Gladiator (Lethal Lisa) and Screech found the meaning of life and married a cheerleader.


When they got back together they renamed it "Friends Forever."

Isiah Thomas said...

Besides Acie Law IV, what else is TX A&M bringing to the table?

Keith S said...

Put your mind to it go for it
Get down and break a sweat.
Rock and rollllll
yoooou ain't seen nothing yet.

your paternal parent said...

Hot Sundae was the best band going, but Zack Attack was the hottness on the charts.

"put your mind to it, go for it, get down and break a sweat, rock and roll yooooooou aint seen nothin yet"

tp, Muh-vem-snhup

your paternal parent said...

wow, i just Ben'd twice. i aint deleting this one though.

The Rev said...

My SAT score was 1180.

I thought that was pretty damn good.

Now, after seeing the SBTB list, I am deflated.

I don't care if they are fictional characters. I feel inadequate.

Isiah Thomas said...

I think you'd have them beat in a Tastycake eating contest though rev.

your paternal parent said...

i dont even remember taking those tests, let alone my scores.

temwr said...

Mine scores were in the millions

your paternal parent said...

you must've killed on the grammar part.

ben said...

I love grammar.

Mills said...

T-I-G-E-R-S
T-I-G-E-R-S

We're the Bayside Tigers and we're on the prowl...

Mills said...

slater was supposed to wrestle at iowa. he must have been good.

ben said...

He didn't go to Iowa though, he went to Cal U, and had Bob Golic as his RA.

Mills said...

the college years were salty.

The Rev said...

Funny enough, I remember this...

my grammar was 520
the math score was 660

Go figure I would get a job where I talked for a living.

Bigwigs are taking forever to get here today. They're late.

temwr said...

I get a million or so on both them parts.

temwr said...

Slater grew up to be a gay diver.

The Rev said...

I want my free lunch.

Boss is bringing cheesesteaks for us all.

ben said...

since the sixers lost last night...no cheesesteaks.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev check it to make sure its cheese and not #3 on the sub.....Big Boss could be giving you an extra "special" going away present.

Isiah Thomas said...

if they try and pull the "wait no this one is the rev's sub" then you know its on.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So far...pretty crummy day @ LoV. On the bright side, I get God Of War II today. I'll be annoying you all with this game for the next month or so.

You've been warned.

They will be the Champs

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Thanx

El Padrino said...

it's nice out

Spaceman Spiff said...

actually your verbal or "grammar" score shows why you talked for a living.

El Padrino said...

Jay Feeley = not happy

whats funny is prior to signing him we had a problem in the kicking game, why we let him go is beyond me

El Padrino said...

what's SAT?

is that like GED?

Spaceman Spiff said...

half that part is reading comprehension

Spaceman Spiff said...

sweating over my money bracket

whocares said...

Didnt take the SAT. Only the ACT.

Spaceman Spiff said...

kids who hate high school but are not dumb should just get a GED then go to college, anyone can fit in somewhere in college, lot-o-freaks and no bullies

Spaceman Spiff said...

haha, the villain from the first 'scream' movie is named skeet in real life

aah skeet skeet skeet, get low get low

Spaceman Spiff said...

so guess who wrote 'the cable guuuuuuuuuy'

a guy named LOU HOLTZ JR.

ahahahha, no wonder the main character had a lisp.

El Padrino said...

i know im late but sg's bracket column was putrid

2 innings pitched, 9 earned, 11 hits, 3 BB's, 0 SO's

temwr said...

SAT is similar to the ACT

temwr said...

it is an undergrad college entrance exam

El Padrino said...

lou holtz jr writing cable guy

funny

temwr said...

diary for bracket column was painful, i may never recover.

El Padrino said...

i got the gmat's coming up

El Padrino said...

just kidding i dont know what gmat's are

i overheard some guy talkin on the ferry

ha

temwr said...

gmats are the entrance exam for certain types of graduate schools. usually a business type graduate school, like for your MBA.

Advanced finance degrees and accounting folk need to take it too.

El Padrino said...

something i said?

must be lunchtime

El Padrino said...

school is for losers

Isiah Thomas said...

The NIT had some pretty good games on last night.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Yeah, this shit blows.

temwr said...

Rev got a new job? When did this happen? What is his new job?

whocares said...

Gotta finish those TPS before tomorrow.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Did anybody bother to check my extra work on the Tourney Challenge?

ToddPacker said...

super slow day... calm before the storm type stuff

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

It is. And it was a pain in the ass.

Isiah Thomas said...

Deke - fantasy yahoo is nazi'd here.

ToddPacker said...

steve will be happy to know that i have duke in the sweet 16... (beating vcu and pitt)

ben said...

that makes me happy to know too TP...means one less guy I have to compete with.

ben said...

If thursday/friday are the least productive days of work in America, then today has to be the most productive, or next monday.

El Padrino said...

pitt is going to teabag duke

Steve said...

that's balsy tp, I'm working on mine now. I have Duke losing to Pit. Creighton beating Memphis, Southern Ill beating Kansas, and I've been staring at the UNC/Texas match up trying to figure what to do.

Isiah Thomas said...

Western Conference breakdown

I'm not sure if Anthony and Brussard were drunk when they gave their responses. But they are NBA "experts".

ben said...

Hollinger is an idiot..."normally to win 70 games you have to have an avg margin of victory of about 10 pts"

Normally? it's been done once. That's like saying, normally to win 70 games you need Michael Jordan in an expansion year. I'm pretty sure that to win 70 games you just have to score 1 point more then the other team 70 times.

El Padrino said...

72-10 is the best of all time right?
