Spiders suck

So Wednesday was eventful.

Found myself in a pool hall shooting an instructional video on pool with the Black Widow. She was awesome. Played 15 games of 8 and 9 ball and didn’t lose a single one. Best moment of the day was when she decided to taunt her opponent. Dude was lining up his shot, she came over to him, chalked up in his face, and as he’s leaning over, she reaches over his body and lays the chalk on the other side of him. Completely psyched the dude out. He didn’t make another ball that game.

So right after wrapping there I headed off to Crap at Conseco aka the Pacers vs, Wizards game. Pacers were down 10 going into the fourth, cut it down to 5 within a minute, then decided to piss all over themselves. It was great, the offensive scheme for the last 10 minutes was throw the ball down to JO and see if he could score/get fouled while being double teamed.

Danny Granger’s 30 seconds from hell. Inbounds the ball to the other team, easy dunk. Gets the next inbound, dribbles it to half court, fumbles it around, loses it and barely gets it back. Decides that it would be great to jack up a three. Airball. He goes back on defense, fouls and gets dunked on by Agent Zero. It was quite a feat.

GA is absolutely money from three. Dude missed maybe one all night.


So…there’s like this tournament thing going on? I think it’s of some importance. I need to fill out my brackets.

Video time is taking a hiatus/early retirement. It’s just not getting the play necessary. More approval points needed.

Hick-Hops said...

I woke up with an extreme hard on this morning a couldn't figure out why... until I realized it is the first day of the Tourney.

Hick-Hops said...

I think I had a wet dream last night about VCU taking out Duke.

Hick-Hops said...

FYI I am Sweet Lou's Cubbies and Let EA Puppies Breath.

Hick-Hops said...

Popping my cherry with an Early Morning Natty Z bitches.

Oh it counts.

Beth82678 said...

HH refering to his 2 LOV pool entries reminds me of a big debate a couple of my guy friends are having - if you submit more than 1 bracket to a pool and then win, does that cheapen the win?

One guy is adamant that it does in that you get to play both sides of the bet on some games, while the other guy thinks that's ridiculous as you still have to combine the right picks in 1 entry.

Any LOV thoughts on this?

(Nothing personal HH :-))

ToddPacker said...

that suns/mavs game last night was great

Hick-Hops said...

EA is for the pool, Cubbies for the baseball

ToddPacker said...

why is the duke guy in the front seat?

El Padrino said...

i have several sheets but my champ is the same and my final four is different on one of them

Suns/Mavs
can't wait for the 7 game series

El Padrino said...

freak, is she hot or what
on tv she looks kind of hot

El Padrino said...

basically beth no it doesnt cheapen it

whocares said...

I think only one bracket should be filled out.


Hedging your bets by picking five different winners in five different pools is for pussies.

El Padrino said...

i had a dream i was giving it to Eva Longoria

El Padrino said...

cash is cash

whocares said...

Just had an akward moment:


So I was going to get my morning cup of shitty office coffee, and in walks one of the black guys that works here. I rarely talk to him, but we're both waiting on the coffee to finish so I fire out the old, "getting ready for the b-ball tournament?" just to make some small talk.


And I got the feeling like he thought the only reason I was talking b-ball with him was because he was black. Like if a white dude had been there I wouldve been talking stocks, or American Idol or whatever, but since it was the brother I went for the b-ball.

I told him to watch out for UNLV then got the hell out of there.

ToddPacker said...

high level wtf.... i just got slapped with a phonebook size pile of tps

temwr said...

Re: multiple brackets

It cheapens the glory, but you get the same pay out for a win.

temwr said...

I just told people that I won't be available from 10am until monday.

temwr said...

That Duke dude in the front seat bugged the hell out of me too. Stupid ESPN.

ToddPacker said...

i feel like punching someone

El Padrino said...

tps rearing it's ugly head

slay that dragon TP

The Rev said...

Free coffee at Starbucks today from 10am to noon.

Don't know if it is in your area too, but it is in Philly.

The Rev said...

WC's awkward moment...

Either you're projecting his reaction and overreacting, or he is way too sensitive.

Anyway, today is a day where every guy asks every guy about the tourney whether they are black, white, or yellow. It knows no race.

You should feel no shame in asking a fellow man about the tourney.

LOV Man Law!

your paternal parent said...

WC hates black people.

HH is the new Jug (did he die?)

your paternal parent said...

and plus Rev, everybody knows that THEY are good athletes and u know that THEY follow THEIR tourney.

sellin rock or got a wicked jump shot, kna'mean?

your paternal parent said...

finally did mine last night. however, i have no idea what teams i picked as of this morning as i had certain influences, uh, influencing me yesterday evening.

your paternal parent said...

the movie Jesus Camp scared me. highly watchable though.

temwr said...

Dude should be happy you axed him.

The only dudes you don't ask are the gay ones.


I'm joking, we all know cum fast follows the tourney.

El Padrino said...

wc is a racist

El Padrino said...

breakfast

whocares said...

re: Starbucks in Philly.



I bet that wont be crowded.

whocares said...

rev,

Is it just free coffee or can I still get my "Half Caf Mocha Latte with a Double Shot of Espresso?"

Mills said...

nothing from me today. the man is turning his nazi eye on me...

temwr said...

I have never had Starbucks.

I haven't had a cup of coffee, umm, ever.

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

She was actually quite hot.

But she's married with kids.

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

'Bout to go to my house, fill out brackets, and watch HD.

El Padrino said...

i'm so busy

El Padrino said...

gotta slay this dragon before 12

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

Can't believe you didn't take that -4 El P. You would have killed.

El Padrino said...

i know freak

thing about it was i thought it was a trap

ended up winning nicely on the bron brons, they blew out memphis

El Padrino said...

and i had the suns

when in doubt, take the points

ToddPacker said...

f-bombs are flying out of my mouf at an alarming rate.... not very professional

Steve said...

If your betting for money, I can see two brackets. If your doing an LOV type thing, 2 brackets is kinda gay.

ben said...

Bobby Knight is hilarious.....

ben said...

Dickie V picked Duke to beat VCU...huge surprise.

Beth82678 said...

"If your betting for money, I can see two brackets. If your doing an LOV type thing, 2 brackets is kinda gay."

Steve, I hope you realize you're so setting Isiah up to respond: "I guess you're doing 2 LOV brackets then Steve."

:-)

ben said...

I have a UCLA/Florida rematch in the final 4, that happens sometimes.

ben said...

if I hear one more coach say "I think we match up really well with them" when they're a 15 seed i'm going to shoot SG.

ben said...

I take that back...the 2 seed coaches that say "it's going to be a tough one...they're a lot better then people give them credit" are worse.

ben said...

If I was coaching a 1 or 2 seed, i'd come out and be honest "yeah, we expect to roll these guys. I figure i'll only have to play the starters for a few minutes in the second half" If you lose, you look stupid, but at least you're honest.

ben said...

I don't think I like Kelvin Sampson...I liked him when he was at Washington State, but now I think he's a goof.

ben said...

Dorkendorf scored 34 last night to carry syracuse against that tough S.Alabama team.

temwr said...

the problem with games where i work is there is only 1 bar that has multi screens and the package.

it is already filled up.

temwr said...

I may have to drive somewhere.

Steve said...

Yea, Beth the best part about daylight savings time is an hour extra in the mornings without Zeke.


Ben, If a 1 or 2 seed coach came and said that, it would be nothing short of the greatest thing in sports ever!!

"What are you kidding me? Who the fuck is Jackson State? Lets talk about Arizona or Purdue!"

whocares said...

T-minus 90 minutes till tipoff.

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

okay...back at home base, time to knock out some brackets.

Steve said...

When do the LOV brackets lock up? Tip Off?

temwr said...

yahoo ones usually lock 5 mins before tip off.

El Padrino said...

Ok fellas (and beth)

All Straight Bets ($50)

Old D +1.5
Pitt -10.5
A&M -14
Zags +2
Oral Bob +7
Texas Tech +3
Gtown -17
Over 128 points Louis/Stanford game

temwr said...

I have 0 opinions on those.

temwr said...

Other than I dislike:

Pitt -10.5
Texas Tech +3
Gtown -17

Spaceman Spiff said...

El Padrino said...

you dont think gtwon blows out?

Steve said...

I'd feel better about the GTown line than the Pit

El Padrino said...

signing i nnow, let's see if this works

whocares said...

I would stay away from giving up double digit points in the tourney.


Just my opinion.

El Padrino said...

pitt's defense is nasty
but i can see a back door cover

El Padrino said...

i agree WC, but not in the first round

Spaceman Spiff said...

im all over texas tech, smothering that bitch

El Padrino said...

i just get a blue screen

Spaceman Spiff said...

also got xavier -2
and davidson +7

El Padrino said...

how long should i have a blue screen for?

MMOD

Spaceman Spiff said...

foor maybe never, i didnt get one and my work connection sucks

ben said...

New LOB is up

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP getting nazi'd? this is worse than making eat jersey food

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

I'm not sure how, but Southern Illinois is in my final four.

Spaceman Spiff said...

do you have pop-ups disabled? says something about that

temwr said...

I think G Town wins by 10 or so, the 17 scares me away. I always fear the big spreads like that.

My personal feelings make me hate Pitt.

El Padrino said...

im at the end of the waiting list

what is this great adventure?

Isiah Thomas said...

woo woo

THIS IS NOT A GAME PEOPLE.

El Padrino said...

it works i think
im on the line

Isiah Thomas said...

MMOD still blocked, there is no Christmas miracle today....

ben said...

freak, i looked at SIU in the elite 8 for a long time before I decided to take Florida.

Isiah Thomas said...

EP - MMOD is one of man's greatest inventions.

ben said...

i'm tired of waiting for this directv ass to get here with my hd-dvr. I have this funny feeling he's going to roll in right when the games start and have to shut everything down.

El Padrino said...

i'm still waiting, not moving

El Padrino said...

ben your home?

Spaceman Spiff said...

my heart rate is at dangerous levels right now

ben said...

Yeah, i'm at home for the morning. "working from home" kicks ass

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP, they let us in at 11:30 your time

Isiah Thomas said...

you'll wait in line till the games start I think....the line moved quick last year.

I'm a VIP with no place to go with MMOD.

whocares said...

"freak, i looked at SIU in the elite 8 for a long time before I decided to take Florida."



They're not in the same region.

Please Advise

temwr said...

Line moved crazy fast last year because half of the nation is nazied on that shit.

ben said...

i'm 37,132 in line for mmod

temwr said...

a billion people sign up and like 1,567 can actually use it.

whocares said...

I'm with you zeke,


It's like I'm standing in front of the coolest club in town with my membership card, but the bouncer keeps telling me I'm not good looking enough to come in.


But......but......I'm a fucking member!!!

ben said...

WC, my bad, i don't have my bracket in front of me. I can't remember who I was staring at against SIU, thought it was florida

Spaceman Spiff said...

getting chubbed up looking over my bracket

ben said...

It was UCLA/SIU that I was staring at trying to decide who goes to the final 4

temwr said...

I just realized that I am going to battle with the Ohio State / Florida championship rematch, with OSU taking it this time.

I predict a finish of DFL for me.

temwr said...

Oh and following Meiz's brilliant lead I put the SH picks into the pool.

Umm, hopefully she doesn't win.

ben said...

I used the SH way of picking teams in the tourney

El Padrino said...

shit, 5 minutes
i hope it works

temwr said...

and I hate fucking workpapers.

El Padrino said...

my emails crashed

yes!

Spaceman Spiff said...

SH way only works if spreads are involved, your bracket is pure moneyline

ben said...

i took Wright State over Pitt

El Padrino said...

i got pitt in the elite 8

Spaceman Spiff said...

pitt will take a triceratops size dump on wright state

ben said...

Wright State has Moxie, and Aaron Gray is a goof.

ben said...

i have no idea what moxie is...but people say that a lot, so i like to sound knowledgeable.

ben said...

c'mon let people in

Steve said...

"i took Wright State over Pitt"

I get the feeling Ben is a "Win Big Or Lose Big" kinda guy

Spaceman Spiff said...

11:35 eastern is the new time they letting peeps in

whocares said...

People quit using the term moxie in 1936.

whocares said...

Is there going to be a storming of the gates on MMOD if they dont let people in soon?

The Rev said...

Should I even bother trying to log into MMOD now?

I'm guessing no.

Looks like a long lunch at the sports bar today.

Isiah Thomas said...

Hey Jason Terry - God was a Suns fan last night douchebag.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev - MMOD moves very quickly, if you have access and don't log in you'll regret it the rest of your life.

i'm afraid people will get trampled, and ruin it for all

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

FUCK MOTHERFUCKER FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.

FUCKING GAY ASS CBS WON'T LET ME FUCKING SIGN IN. I'M GONNA FUCKIN KILL SOMEONE

The Rev said...

OK, I logged in.

I'm 55037 in the VIP line.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev, the line moves fast, last year i was logging in when games had already started

Spaceman Spiff said...

no idea when they will start letting people in tho, they already lied 2 times

ben said...

the line is starting to move

The Rev said...

I'm under 50,000 now.

OK, I see how it works. Not bad.

Someone save me a good seat. I'm bringing cigars.

The Rev said...

If I have to close it out and log in later, is that an issue?

Spaceman Spiff said...

im moving up 1000 spots every 20 seconds

ben said...

you just have to get back in line rev.

Spaceman Spiff said...

do not close it, rev really has no reading comp skills it says

Warning! in red, do not close

The Rev said...

Half the people just dropped out of the General admission line.

The Rev said...

I'm not talking closing it now.

I'm talking like a few hours from now.

Isiah Thomas said...

Dear Company Nazi Blocker:

GO FUCK YOURSELF.

Sincerely,

Zeke

Spaceman Spiff said...

you;ll just have to wait a little to get in again then

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm four more MMOD comments from other people from taking myself out.....please don't stop talking about it now, I'm almost there.

ben said...

that's what i'm going to have to do, when I go into the office after lunch.

ben said...

wow, this MMOD thing is really cool...thanks zeke for telling us about it.

The Rev said...

Gotcha Spiff. It's all so exciting.

Three more comments to go before Zeke does himself in. Make em good ones.

Spaceman Spiff said...

and I'm in

The Rev said...

This is one of the last weeks I will be working for an un-nazi company when it comes to the web.

I have to enjoy it while I can.

El Padrino said...

jsut logged back in
it's crashing my comp

Isiah Thomas said...

this is the end.....my on...ly....friend....the end....

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm contemplating jamming my hand in the copy machine just so I can go home.

whocares said...

MMOD doesnt compare with the way I'll be watching these games.

I'll be on the ESPN.com scoreboard hitting refresh every 30 seconds or so. I'm doing this shit retro style.

ben said...

i'm not sure if the MMOD will even work in my office.

Spaceman Spiff said...

theres a boss button at the bottom of the screen, im guessing this closes the window

ben said...

WC, ESPN has that auto update thing on the scoreboard so you don't have to hit refresh.

The Rev said...

No Zeke.

Jam it in the paper shredder. It's so much more effective.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm throwing my stapler at the next person who walks past my office....

ben said...

the boss button brings up spreadsheets and graphs...i couldn't figure out how to get back to the video though when I was using it the other day.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev I just need to do enough to justify getting sent home, no need to dismember myself.

Spaceman Spiff said...

WC, if youre only gonna refresh every 30 seconds, you should just let it auto refresh, to make it worth your while you should refresh every 10 seconds

Isiah Thomas said...

I feel like an amazonian villager with no contact with the outside world.

The Rev said...

I think I'm looking at another 20 minutes before I get in.

whocares said...

"WC, ESPN has that auto update thing on the scoreboard so you don't have to hit refresh."



Up yours, Ben.

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

I'm watching the games the way they're supposed to be watched.

On a big screen HDTV.

ToddPacker said...

tps just got beat the hell up

ben said...

I should be in in the next 20 seconds

whocares said...

Thanks spiff and Ben,


Maybe refreshing every 10 seconds is the way to go. Everyone says that's the next best thing to being there.

ben said...

OH hell no....it's only letting like 100 people at a time in now.

Spaceman Spiff said...

but freak, are you getting paid to watch the games, I am

whocares said...

Jfreak,


But your still a broke college kid.

El Padrino said...

i dont know what's going on
just waiting for somehting to happen, right now it says to follow the wiating room meter but there are no meters

i'm bewildered

Spaceman Spiff said...

rev, you have 20 minutes til games start anyways

El Padrino said...

should i close and re-launch

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm getting paid to be extra bitter today.

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP, maybe you are missing flash player or java on your computer, i think you def need java for this

The Rev said...

Brutus: I'm so upset.

Timmy: Why, B?

Brutus: All of these cool people are getting into the VIP club to watch the games but I can't.

Timmy: It's OK, B. You don't need to watch basketball to be fulfilled. Just spend the day at home with me and we will watch The View together.

Brutus: But I love basketball. Greg Oden is my hero. I just peed myself I'm so upset. Why do they get to be so much cooler than me?

Timmy: Don't worry B. Later on today, we can go shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond. Then I'll take you to Cold Stone Creamery and buy you your favorite flavor.

Brutus: The one with the gummi bears mixed in?

Timmy: You got it.

Brutus: Oh Timmy, you always know how to calm me down. Hold me.

Timmy: I always do, B. I always do.

Isiah Thomas said...

websense can kiss my ass.

Steve said...

"the boss button brings up spreadsheets and graphs"

what happens if your boss looks closely and then ask you to explain the numbers?


I'd stick with the good ole Alt-Tab

ToddPacker said...

i right there with ya, zeke... no mmod for me... blocked

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm finally logged in and have made my way to #24000

whocares said...

Not bad work on the B&T rev.

Spaceman Spiff said...

does this mean meiz wont kill anyone today

ToddPacker said...

nice b&t, rev... but i think zeke has been to the 1st class lounge at the airport

El Padrino said...

i use too many web base systems
this is not going to work for me

i'm crying

ToddPacker said...

getting ready for a looooong lunch

El Padrino said...

espn gamecast here i come

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Yeah, no murder today.

temwr said...

Please be advised:

If you print out your Yahoo bracket it puts your team name in bold on the top left.

So when the big boss asks to see your bracket don't show it to him unless you want him to be reading your LOV team name.

White that shit out, photocopy it and then shred the original.

Regards,
tem

The Rev said...

I got inspired.

I hear they have unlimited peanuts in first class. Is that true?

ben said...

I knew it...directv guy just showed up...stupid ass.

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

I'm getting paid to house sit a house that I'm not at.

Seems good enough to me.

Steve said...

This lady in the office picked a Duke/UNC/Maryland/VA final four.

God I hope she's right.

Isiah Thomas said...

nice b&t, rev... but i think zeke has been to the 1st class lounge at the airport

ahahahahaha

just bi-niss class for me TP...


Good attempt at B&T rev.

The Rev said...

Thank you Zeke.

Coming from you, one of the masters of B&T, it is a high compliment.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm up to 18K.

ben said...

Seth Morris just picked Oral Roberts over Wazzu...experts are always right.

temwr said...

I had to do massive fucking with pop ups blockers and shit.

I got in and no videeeeoooo showed.

Now I am like 69,000

El Padrino said...

i like oral bob

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Murder is back on. I got booted from 17000 back to 66900. MOTHERFUCKER!!

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

Just to show my dominance over all of you, I will watch on TV and use MMOD.

Two games at once, here I come.

El Padrino said...

ok here's the plan, eat lunch at desk, gamecast the games for now, then 2nd half go down to bar and have a few

ben said...

the game isn't showing up on my screen

The Rev said...

Just got in in time for Maryland Davidson tip off.

This is definitely the coolest thing ever.
