Let the MADNESS begin!!!

Honestly, I am so excited for the TCS competition. This is like the opening weekend of March Madness. Routinely the best sports weekend of the year.

Bowl game today! Utah vs. Navy. I'm taking Navy at +8.5. I'd pick 'em straight up. I know, I know, they lost their coach, but Utah has lost every game they've given up more than 135 yards rushing. And with that triple option Navy is guaranteed to get at least 275+ on the ground (they average 351).

There are only 10 people in the Bowl pick 'em? What's up with that?
Group #: 3033
password: tits
Join, you hoes. I'm looking at you EP, Kod, Tyler, Rev, Jug.


Okay, let's recap the first round matchups and the EP set lines.

1 Zeke (-41) vs 16 IAM
8 TP (+7) vs 9 Jug
5 EP (-55) vs 12 Weasel
4 Tem (-67) vs 13 Kod
6 Deke (-11) vs 11 Tyler
3 Keith (-81) vs 14 Crummy
7 Freak (off) vs 10 Spiff
2 Blue (-124) vs 15 Beth

Zeke says he's busy the next few days, but his dominance over the year is apparent, you have to go with him.

I think you have to take Jug at -7. TP has just been eaten whole by the TPS monster.

Take EP, Tem, Keith and Blue to cover easy. Frankly folks, their opposition is not up to snuff. Even as hu-uge favorites, they will get it done.

The TDiLoVH has been missing because Tyler has been working a lot. I don't expect this to change. You're gonna see more "I've got nothing" comments from Deke than usual, but picking Deke to cover is an easy call.

Spiff is ninja-like with his links, but I'm not sure he can match Freak's LoVAD prowess. It could be interesting, going into Friday night, as both are prone to late nights. This could come down to the wire, but go ahead and take Freak.

I'm spent from all this writing.

We have 12 in the Bowl Pick 'em, but it only shows 10 at a time on the main page. Dunno why. But as freak said... tyler, rev, jug, bbb, etc all need to join.

JFreak said...

i misunderepresented the number of entrants.

Beth said...

Ok, let the record reflect that as of right now I am officially beating ALL competitors in the TCS bowl, not just blue.

Beth said...

Time to pad the lead.

Beth said...

I like that blue is in a different time zone, gives me a little bit of time to build a very temporary lead.

Beth said...

This must be how Hawaii feels in the Sugar Bowl, most people are giving them no chance.

Beth said...

And like Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl, I'm sure I'll get crushed today.

Beth said...

But also like Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl (or so I predict), I have the early lead at least.

Beth said...

It's not easy coming up with comments when you're just talking to yourself.

Beth said...

8 in a row to start the TCS, not too bad.

Beth said...

I'm guessing either Tem or TP will be my streak-buster this morning.

Beth said...

And with this I'm up 10-0 on blue, which will probably take him a whole 2-3 minutes to make up.

Jugdish said...

TCS...I LOOOOVE this game!!!!!!!

Beth said...

Wow, I'm still the only one here?

Jugdish said...

I am a surprise streakbuster. An early day for me since I am getting off early today.

Beth said...

Pressure is on you jug as a #9 seed against a #8 who has fallen on hard times recently.

Jugdish said...

Nope...its jug and jugs so far this morning.

Jugdish said...

TPS might be on my side...both in my office and his.

Beth said...

Of course even if you beat TP, your reward is the #1 seed Zeke, barring a huge upset by FH/BBB.

Jugdish said...

TPS = MVP

Beth said...

I'm rooting for TPS to attack blue today.

Jugdish said...

I am also hoping for that upset. I hope iam wasn't just all talk.

Beth said...

Things seem to be slow here today, so my main limitation will be coming up with stuff to chat about.

Jugdish said...

Just keep emailing him pac 10 poon links and other porn links to keep him busy.

Beth said...

When I say "things seem to be slow here today", here = work. Things will most definitely NOT be slow at LOV today.

Jugdish said...

That's pretty much the case here on most days though.

Beth said...

Blue has deserted pac10poon it seems. Maybe I should imply that that means he's gay in hopes of getting him preoccupied with that today.

Jugdish said...

If Zeke makes it to the second round, LOVAD will kill me. I RARELY log on outside of work.

Jugdish said...

Maybe he is working on his new site...Mountain West Schlong

Beth said...

Blue, a straight man wouldn't let pac10poon go 10 days without a new post. I think you need to spend lots of time fixing that.

(Let's see if that works.)

Jugdish said...

Don't start a slapper with him...not good strategy.

Beth said...

Yeah, LOVad will be tough on those of us with lives. :-)

Beth said...

Not a slapper, just a way to distract him hopefully.

Jugdish said...

Celtics are 20-3, as a Bulls fan, is it too early for me to start worrying about them beating the 72-10 record?

Jugdish said...

If I logged on at night my wife would ask me what I am doing. How do you explain TCS?

Imagine the look I'd get.

CMFost said...

An 81 point underdog

CMFost said...

those are long odds

CMFost said...

I mean 81 that is a big number to overcome

CMFost said...

could this be the upset of the century?

Jugdish said...

And then there were three.

Beth said...

See, that's why I wonder about the supposedly married guys who are on LOVad all the time. Either they're lying about being married or their wives are glad to not have to deal with them I figure.

CMFost said...

yeah, you are right probably not Keith is going to crush me

CMFost said...

but if he does not he should be the first entrant in the LOV Hall of Shame

Beth said...

Cmfost, an 81 underdog is nothing compared to the 124 underdog I am.

Jugdish said...

Especially when they do their running diaries of games and no one else is logged in at the time.

CMFost said...

Beth most of us, Ok, maybe it is just me are at work and away from our wives for a while.

Beth said...

What I don't get is how the #2 vs #15 is a 124 underdog, but the #1 vs #16 is only a 41 underdog.

Jugdish said...

I think the top half of the TCS bracket is tougher.

CMFost said...

Good Luck Beth, I hope you pull the upset!!!

CMFost said...

I do not really understand any of it

Jugdish said...

I think the odds makers were more focused on getting drunk last night than setting good lines.

CMFost said...

but I was hoping to make Keith have to work at just a little

Jugdish said...

Its not hard to understand.

CMFost said...

That is completely possible.

Beth said...

Cm, we're talking about LOVad, which is after work hours.

CMFost said...

If I was setting the lines I would of made myself a 200+ underdog.

CMFost said...

Got you Beth, my bad.

CMFost said...

Maybe they do not like their wives and want to hide from them

Beth said...

I'm just hoping for one upset in the 1st round, whether it's me or not.

CMFost said...

maybe there wives hate them and tell them to get away

Beth said...

Although jug, with TP's recent history I wouldn't consider you winning an upset.

CMFost said...

maybe they do not have wives and they just say they do

Jugdish said...

The only time I remember ever logging on here at night was a night my wife was out of town. I was HAMMERED drunk, and it was just before I crashed. No one was here. I padded my days TCS stats with 8 posts and went to bed.

CMFost said...

It is probably a combination of all 3 things.

Beth said...

So has LOV ever been at 60+ comments at 8:23 am? Probably not off of a new post. Today could be 1,000 comments easily.

CMFost said...

I almost logged in once at night it was on December 1st at midnight.

Jugdish said...

No...and TEM got the numbers from Oct. I have been on here a lot in the last month, where TP has disappeared in a storm of TPS.

Maybe he is one of Santa's elves...this is their crazy time of year.

CMFost said...

I was going to post since my ban was over

blue said...

beth, i am proud of you

CMFost said...

but I decided to wait since I really had better things to do

Beth said...

I know Kod is short, is TP short also?

Jugdish said...

None of our competition has showed up today.

Beth said...

Dammit blue, I needed more time to pad my lead.

CMFost said...

Morning Blue, how is Baby Blue?

Jugdish said...

Not sure on TP.

Kod is what, 5'6?

Beth said...

Blue, they say the first few months of a baby's life are the most important. I think your daughter needs your attention today.

Jugdish said...

Blue...let the games begin.

Beth said...

5'6 sounds about right for Kod I'd guess.

CMFost said...

Beth you should try to get the comments to 200 by 9:00 AM

CMFost said...

Ok, For the basketball fans, Why do the Celtics keep giving Paul Pierce the ball to miss a last second shot? He never seems to make those shots.

Beth said...

It's still early and work hasn't really kicked in yet, once it does I'm toast I know.

CMFost said...

I feel your pain Beth. I have a crap load of things to do today.

Jugdish said...

This is a slow time of the year for me...not like for TP in Santa's workshop.

Beth said...

Basketball talk will kill my commenting. I am so not a fan and have zero to contribute to those discussions.

CMFost said...

I have a feeling that when Keith finally logs in you will see a flurry of like 100 posts from him.

Beth said...

Jug, isn't there a new launch in early January? No work to do on that?

CMFost said...

I can not see him wanting to deal with the embarrassment of losing to me.

CMFost said...

Sorry Beth, I will try and talk about something more in your wheelhouse.

CMFost said...

But I really do not know what is in your wheelhouse

Beth said...

This so needs to be a 1-day first round, no way I will have the time or energy or interest to do this over 2 days. I'll be lucky if I make it til 10:00 am without fading.

CMFost said...

you know it is no fun being the only person in your office.

Beth said...

Cm, that's easy - Georgia football, Braves, Thrashers, Falcons and of course women. ;-)

CMFost said...

not s single one of my co-workers have shown up yet.

Jugdish said...

New launch date is Jan 10th for the time being. They have narrowed down the problem with the sensors to a bad connector. To get to that connector they have to remove some of the foam on the external tank to help determine what they need to do to fix the problem, so the launch date may change. While they work on this problem, there is not much support needed from my group.

CMFost said...

crap another typo, I hate when I do that.

CMFost said...

Georgia is going to crush Hawaii

Beth said...

Jug, that's bad news for TP. He probably needed an impending launch where your group was greatly needed to move past the first round.

CMFost said...

It will be a high scoring game but I do not think Hawaii has the talent to hang with the bulldogs

CMFost said...

My prediction on that Game

Georgia 44
Hawaii 21

Jugdish said...

100?

Jugdish said...

YES!

Beth said...

"Georgia is going to crush Hawaii"

I started off thinking that Cm, but I've talked to many hardcore UGA fans/alum and they're all very concerned. Not so much about Hawaii but more about UGA's motivation for the game. It's Hawaii for god's sake.

CMFost said...

100 and it is not even 8:30 AM

Beth said...

Damn, 100 by 8:30.

CMFost said...

It is still a major bowl game against an undefeated opponent

Jugdish said...

Quick...go to Yahoo.com and look at the main story.

CMFost said...

Plus Georgia should go into the game with a chip on there shoulder.

Jugdish said...

I think we found Blue a new pic.

CMFost said...

I mean with the last rankings before the final BCS standings they were #4 and they should of moved up when 1 and 2 lost.

CMFost said...

They may want to try and prove they belong in the NCS Game

Beth said...

I love the headline "It's not easy being blue". Too funny.

CMFost said...

that is great

Jugdish said...

Dude looks like he is turning into Papa Smurf.

Beth said...

Well that's the counter-thinking. They also want to finish strong to get ranked in the top 5 for sure in next season's pre-season rankings.

Beth said...

Blue posted 1 comment and then disappeared. He's a confident man.

Beth said...

I think I've already posted more today than I do most weeks.

CMFost said...



It is not easy being blue

CMFost said...

I kind of feel bad for that guy.

CMFost said...

I wonder if that is Blue

CMFost said...

Keep it up Beth

Jugdish said...

So he was a white guy before huh?

CMFost said...

Your competition will not know what hit him

tem said...

119 already? damn.

CMFost said...

I guess, I did not have the sound on.

CMFost said...

What did they say is the reason he is blue?

Jugdish said...

He should shave that beard and hair and join the blue man group...embrace his blueness.

tem said...

WVU just interviewed Doc Holliday for the coaching position.

Next up is Wyatt Earp, Billy The Kidd and Big Nose Kate.

CMFost said...

Tem , Can we get an early morning TCS update?

CMFost said...

either that or start a stage version of the smurfs

CMFost said...

Tem the goal is 200 by 9:00 AM

Jugdish said...

Did you see the video after the blue man on ABC?

A civilian guy catches cops parking illegally and videos it...pretty funny.

CMFost said...

Doc Holliday Really? Who the hell is that?

Beth said...

Not a good sign, I'm already getting tired of posting so much.

CMFost said...

no I only checked out the one video

Jugdish said...

Big Nose Kate is a defensive genius!

CMFost said...

Beth, have some coffee or some sugar, it will give you a new energy boost

CMFost said...

It is probably not easy to find a coach to go to West Virginia unless he is from there.

Jugdish said...

I am actually getting some work done today too, believe it or not.

tem said...

Holliday is a Floida assistant.

No TCS update until after the 1st QTR. Which isn't now.

CMFost said...

did you see the video of the turtle with 2 heads?

tem said...

Jim Grobe is from West Virginia, we might be able to steal him from Wake Forest.

CMFost said...



A turtle with 2 head

tem said...

today will be 2,000 comments and then tomorrow will be like 200 because everyone will be bored with the TCS.

TCS has a shelflife of 12hrs.

Steve said...

I don't understand? What are these lines for?

CMFost said...

When does the 1st Quarter end?

Jugdish said...

I will be in full TCS mode tomorrow.

CMFost said...

12hrs, More like one or 2

tem said...

"Not a good sign, I'm already getting tired of posting so much."

beth has no stamina.

she's a one and done kind of girl.

CMFost said...

my only goal is to make keith work at this.

Beth said...

Sorry Steve, you didn't qualify. But it's a competition on who can post the most comments, with head to head competitions. For example I'm the 15th seed and am up against the #2 seed blue.

tem said...

they are for the TCS tournament.

You are in the NIT against Rev.

CMFost said...

I was thinking of not posting at all but that would not be the way to go.

Jugdish said...

Tomorrow is my last day of work until Jan 2nd. We don't get a lot of days off during the year as far as holidays go, but they always give us a week and a half or so at the holiday season.

CMFost said...

Keith has been my nemesis here and I feel this urge to try and beat him.

Beth said...

"beth has no stamina.
she's a one and done kind of girl"

It's ADD, how dare you make fun of a disabled person tem!

(s)

tem said...

"I was thinking of not posting at all but that would not be the way to go."

yes it would.

had to be said.

CMFost said...

If I was Batman he would be the Joker

Jugdish said...

You are in the NIT against Rev.

Hilarity...but wouldn't it be the Tem Invitational Tournament...or TIT?

tem said...

"how dare you make fun of a disabled person tem!"

making fun of others, especially the less fortunate, is a founding pillar of LOV.

tem said...

LOL, the TIT.

CMFost said...

Thanks Tem, at least you did not say like some other would with complete malice in there hearts.

Beth said...

If it's the TIT and not the NIT, shouldn't I be in that one too?

To quote tem from a minute or 2 ago, it "had to be said".

Steve said...

ahhh, na. I wouldn't be able to play anyways. My TPS is very random/sporadic.


Is it over a 24 hour period? Or Just 9-5? Easter Time? Mountain? Pacific? etc. etc.

CMFost said...

Beth, My bet would be you are not the one and done type.

Beth said...

And a "lol" from Tem, today is an unusual day all around.

CMFost said...

Steve it is Tem tourney, so it is his rules.

Tem is the master of the TIT

Beth said...

"Beth, My bet would be you are not the one and done type"

I'm usually limited by my partner.

tem said...

wow my NIT comment is I2I with Zeke from LOVAD.

and then Jugs TIT comment is I2I with keef.


a rare LOVAD LOVAM double I2I.

CMFost said...

crap, I guess I have to do some work know my boss just showed up

CMFost said...

crap another typo.

Oh well just another example of cumbonics.

tem said...

first round is 7am EST today until friday at midnight PST.

east coasters get the jump, but the west coasters get to close.

except freak who will be closing at 3am EST because he keeps wierd hours.

tem said...

"I'm usually limited by my partner."

why is she the one and done type?

Jugdish said...

I'm pitching a shut out right now.

Beth said...

"why is she the one and done type?"

Cause you ruined fmtem for me.

(too obvious but I still had to do it)

Steve said...

i have a new group of people that I'm adding to my "want to punch in the right eye" list. (I'm left handed)


People who can't say "I don't know" without giving you this long drawn out explanation as to why they don't know. It's really annoying, just spit the words out, just say "I don't know". I don't care how you justify yourself as an idiot.

Jugdish said...

RE: double i2i

Weird...I swear I didn't read LOVAD either.

tem said...

That is hilarious Steve because just the other day I added people who won't accept "I don't know" for an answer to my same list.

I too am lefthanded.

tem said...

keith and zeke are ahead of our time jug.

Steve said...

tem


ya'll have no chance then. This match is over. Zeke is gonna own. He's gonna dominate like the Bulls in the 90's.


Ya'll should have set some handicaps or something.

Jugdish said...

I did see where they were bitching about the early start time, but they are the same ones on LOVAD for hours upon end.

We need a head start!

Jugdish said...

I don't like it when people tell a story, and the story could be told pretty quickly except for the fact that they have to give every freaking detail of the damn story.

tem said...

i always have this conversation


other person: what is .....

me: i don't know

other person: why not

me: i don't know that either

other person: shouldn't you know?

me: probably, but i don't.

other person: why not?

me: ok, i'll make up a reason now.


at that point I either blame gravity or me being lefthanded.

Jugdish said...

Beth...do you still run?

tem said...

zeke should own for sure.

blue might be able to give him a run though, keith too.

Steve said...

"at that point I either blame gravity or me being lefthanded."

I'm gonna try that. If all fails I can enjoy the dumbfounded look on their face for a few moments.

Beth said...

Both Steve and Tem are left-handed? Well that explains a lot...

OK, I have no idea what I mean by that but it sounded funny to me and it got me another comment.

Jugdish said...

If there was only some NBA games early in the morning we could give a running diary of.

tem said...

round 2 is 1-2 through 1-4

round 3 is 1=7 through 1-11

and the championships are 1-14 through 1-18.


the TCS is a long tourney.


The TIT between you and Rev goes 12-20 through 1-18. It is a marathon.

Beth said...

"Beth...do you still run?"

Yep, in fact I ran 4 miles this morning before work even.

tem said...

beth to be a TCS champ you need to split your thoughts into multiple comments.

tem said...

putting two thoughts into the same comment doesn't cut it.

Beth said...

Sorry tem.

Beth said...

I'll work on that.

tem said...

"First QTR" ends at 2pm EST today...ish.

I'll post updates around then.

Beth said...

Better?

El Padrino said...

the party was great

kobe beef burgers
filet mignon
shrimp
thai chicken
jack and coke
coffee tequilla shots
root beer float shots
chipwhichs

tem said...

you are a fast learner beth.

Steve said...

Marisa Tomei nakedness

NSFW

She's still hot.

Jugdish said...

I always thought I would hate running ona treadmill. I had a problem with my calf a few months ago so I took some time off. When I started running again I ran on treadmills and it wasn't that bad.

tem said...

i see what you did there.
