The Madness begins

This is the most important link today.

I was going to give you my picks, but I've decided against it. Because I'm a moron, and you don't want to hear what I have to say. I have Butler in the Eight Elites.

On ESPN you can fill out 10 brackets. I've done about 4 of them with just ridiculous picks. 1 each of each (good) Indiana team winning (screw you Purdue). And one other that was like all upsets.

Elton Brand has been in the NBA since 1999? Holy cow.


A sofa king, we todd did video.


Sofa King We Todd Did

I really don't have anything else to say.

Expect live blogging from my couch today.

tem said...

i took efmtem's dad with me.

i put the ticket in the dresser and told him "tickets in the dresser, stadium is that way, see ya there if you want to go."

tem said...

perhaps the beginning of the end for the efmtem's parents' relationship with me.

tem said...

i can keep going like this all morning.

tem said...

ok so maybe i can't. but i might try.

ToddPacker said...

tem: well yeah, i went to the bookstore a lot

co-worker: what were you doing in the bookstore at kenyon?

tem: umm, buying my books and this mug

co-worker: why'd you get your books there?

tem: because my professors told me to

co-worker: wierd

tem: you know i graduated from there right?

co-worker: no i thought you graduated from WVU

ToddPacker said...

ToddPacker said...

"probably teaching him how to cheat"

ToddPacker said...

ToddPacker said...

ToddPacker said...

tps has taken over my life... sad

tem said...

"i'm guessing bill went out drinking with tony larusa earier in the week"

white wine spritzers all around.

ToddPacker said...

tem said...

it's because of that huge raise and promotion you got.

ToddPacker said...

"it's because of that huge raise and promotion you got"

that hurt

tem said...

it was meant to sting

ToddPacker said...

it stung

tem said...

sting is good.

by just sitting here and typing all day.

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

people trying bang out TPS before the games start?

tem said...

keef isn't even at work yet.

meiz could die any day now.

tem said...

100% chance freak is asleep.

ToddPacker said...

i should have called in sick

tem said...

yes you should have.

tem almost did, but it would have been too obvious.

tem said...

instead i am going to throw up in the kitchen and then go home.

tem said...

i might be able to just dry heave a bit and then go home.

Jugdish said...

"probably teaching him how to cheat."

How to get the better camera angles and stuff.

tem said...

jug where are you going and who are you seeing tonight?

Jugdish said...

Tonight is a happy hour for my boss, he is going to a new job. Beer league softball will follow that. Its always best that I play softball with at least one beer in me.

tem said...

i miss TDiLH.

maybe i will research one.

tem said...

i need to get in shape for softball season.

Jugdish said...

However, on Saturday I am going here to see this guy.

Jugdish said...

I've never been there, I hear its cool though. Small place, acoustic show...good times.

tem said...

WFT is the Jeff Gordon widget on the front page?

Jugdish said...

TPS has been kicking my ass here, and it isn't going to let up anytime soon. It will probably get worse.

ToddPacker said...

" It will probably get worse"

same here, jug

ToddPacker said...

"Jeff Gordon widget"

that needs to go

tem said...

what is the widget? what is its point?

Jugdish said...

It doesn't show up for me...it gives some error.

tem said...

wow super wall

tem said...

SH on far left apparently

tem said...

TDiLH

Post: a fantastic tem post.

Tem talks about how espn ranked OSU 13th out of the sweet 16 teams. ESPN was wrong I guess.

Rev was in the midst of his 3 part series on a drive to Boston in the snowy weather.

WWF was in a roids scandal that never materialized because everyone already figured it out years ago.


Comments: 520 comments

All agree that LOV is where obvious jokes get made first and that we should have our own TV show.

Odd or not so odd name changes
Blue = Ben
Tem = temwr
Iam = your paternal parent

Ben says Greg Oden = Michael Olowokandi. Some folks agree, others do not. Much debating ensues.

Ben RE: Oden “Umm..i guess he better go play in the legit center league then, because the NBA doesn't have much room for guys that can't get up and down the floor, unless their 7'6” What about 7’7” guys? CoL, can’t teach height!

Rev almost lost his house, but closed a day late. Whew!

Whocares compare shamoff to herpes. There everyday…..

Beth and Quitter may have been at the height of their “war.”

Mills’ dog is named Beatrice

Lots of Rev and house title talk.

Spiff links up a picture of piss ice.

WFT was commonly referred to as WTF

Lots of mortgage talk….it is very boring. The exact opposite of when I talk about it.

LOV predicts sub prime crash and banks getting fucked. NS

Blue proposes a sportsmatch.com so he can find guys to play golf with.

Weazy hate was at an all time high

For sanitary reasons Bernie Mac swam nekkid in hike school

Natty Z definition gets clarified

SH pic talk……1 year later the same topics are around.

SG article on Gus Johnson (which tem diaried) talk dominates.

El pad on SH "not so cute but just cuz she's sg's piece i would ram her unconscious"

Rev tells us that ripping on shamford’s family crossed the line.

Linkage of Jose Lima’s well endowed wife

FYI no one is allowed to use the term "camel jockey" in regards to the future Mrs. Rev except Rev.

Talk of Wendy’s raising nuggets prices dominates for a bit.

Kod says one of Shamford’s cousins is “half puppet” –hilarity

Angie jolie talk ends the thread

tem said...

great wall of china....damn.

tem said...

damn the comment box is in the top right. use it if you want.

Jugdish said...

TDiLH...one year from now.

**wall

Jugdish said...

TDiLH...two years from now.

Tem: hello?

tem said...

pretty much.

tem said...

i blame everyone else.

tem said...

apparently the spitzer escort chick might have been 17 in those GGW videos....

Jugdish said...

This spitzer story is entertaining to say the least.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Spaceman Spiff said...

JFreak said...

"100% chance freak is asleep"

your handicapping skills are excellent.

JFreak said...

"WFT is the Jeff Gordon widget on the front page?"

it's supposed to be a nascar widget.

pick the driver you want to follow.

JFreak said...

and we're under way in washington.

Keith S said...

You can't make me do it.

JFreak said...

Xavier scores the first points of the tourney.

Keith S said...

Xavier McDaniel?

Jugdish said...

pick the driver you want to follow.


Ricky Bobby is my selection, that would explain the error.

JFreak said...

Yes, the old, tall black guy who used to play for the sonics scored the first points.

JFreak said...

Gus Johnson is doing the MSU-Temple game.

Woo-hoo.

Keith S said...

Ricky Bobby is a good choice. I went with Cole Trickle.

Keith S said...

Is it too late to change my bracket?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

TPS is ramming my ass

Jugdish said...

I have a feeling about Portland St.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

How did el tardo not do a blog entry about Larry Harris being out the door?

Jugdish said...

It worked earlier...not sure what the problem is now...but cool when I saw it.

Tyler said...

101

JFreak said...

I guess I'm the only one who likes the whiteboard commercials.

Probably because the song they use is a Postal Service song.

El Padrino said...

i got Tulo in the fifth and Escobar in the 16th

El Padrino said...

is that satisfactory freak?

JFreak said...

quite.

any other persons of note?

JFreak said...

Georgia is being really annoying.

Spaceman Spiff said...

spoke way too soon, temple cannot hit a shot

El Padrino said...

In draft order:

A-rod
Beltran
Sabathia
K-Rod
Tulo
Billingsley
Jered Weaver
Derek Lee
Hoffman
Matt Kemp
John Maine
Kelly Johnson
Billy Butler
Hank Blalock
Pudge
Hideki Matusui
Yunel Escobar
Brian Bannister
Josh Fields
Aaron Rowand
Brandon Lyon

Ronny Paulino
Bill Hall

tem said...

xavier needs to wake the fuck up.

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP pls list full roster

tem said...

you needed more indians.

El Padrino said...

You can keep anyone after round 4 forever, 11 teams, head to head and points

$5500 total, $3500 for champ
the rest breaks down with weekly prizes and 2nd place gets $500

El Padrino said...

and more tigers

El Padrino said...

i hope jared gets fat again
the 10 year weight loss thing bothers me

Tyler said...

You took a lot of pitching early.

JFreak said...

Michigan St. has reached the final four 4 of the last 9 years.

I was shocked by this news.

Tyler said...

probably could have picked up Blalock on waivers. No one ever picks that guy. I had him one year in an autodraft league and hated him.

Tyler said...

"You can keep anyone after round 4 forever"

Smart move to take K-Rod in the fourth and then Tulo in the fifth then.

JFreak said...

Everyone here needs to root for baylor in the next round of games.

Tyler said...

maine is underrated. I picked him up off the wire last year in a keeper league.

Tyler said...

Lyon went that late? Wow.

Tyler said...

If Spiff was in that draft, he would have picked him right before you just to piss you off.

Return of the H said...

H is here

JFreak said...

yay aitch

tem said...

2 games at 35-26 at the half.

wow, what are the odds?

just amazing.

useless fact for sure.

El Padrino said...

yeah pitching was early but that's how it went, pithcing and outfielders were flying off the shelves

and i picked blalock becasue this tool next to me had him circled and i wanted to piss him off

he was pissed

lyon went real late, you know when you make a pick with that meek voice as if your expecting the guy to say "He's gone already, wake up"? That's how i drafted Lyon.

El Padrino said...

almost like a question

Brandon Lyon?

El Padrino said...

tulo, keeper
exactly

Tyler said...

Nice.

El Padrino said...

fucking xavier

tem said...

that's how you got tulo in our draft, except the exact opposite.

Return of the H said...

I'm not much into this whole March Madness thing...

El Padrino said...

right

Return of the H said...

you can't really see the girl in my picture. a resize may be in order...

JFreak said...

"I'm not much into this whole March Madness thing..."

boston sucks.

El Padrino said...

fucking xavier

tem said...

i can tell the games are on and not blocked because our intraweb is slow as shit.

Spaceman Spiff said...

in drafted order

tem said...

who is the girl?

Tyler said...

"I'm not much into this whole March Madness thing..."

Boston doesn't have a contender in something and you're not interested? Shocking.

Tyler said...

Boston fans are spoiled. I'm just sayin'.

JFreak said...

i have xavier in the elite eight.

this is bad.

Tyler said...

H, is that your twin brother on bass?

Tyler said...

You guys kind of have the same look going.

Return of the H said...

this may be better

Tyler said...

One of you should mix it up. As a lead singer you never want to be confused with the bass player.

Return of the H said...

the girl is a waitress who works at the club with double american flags and disco ball motifed guitar. She decided to hop on stage and dance. H did not argue.

Bass player is of no relation

Spaceman Spiff said...

the only reason i picked anybody was to steal them from tyler

s

Return of the H said...

"Boston doesn't have a contender in something and you're not interested? Shocking."

I'm not into it any year. I don't follow any college sports. I usually will tune in beginning at the sweet 16. That's about it though.

tem said...

that is what the waitress wears to work?

i bet she makes a shitload in tips.

JFreak said...

you don't watch the first two rounds?

that's insanity.

those are the best two rounds in the tourney.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tyler said...

"the only reason i picked anybody was to steal them from tyler"

I know this was the troof spiff. Somehow you hacked into my computer and got my rankings. (s)

You also took Furcal right before I wanted him. But I'm over it already.

Return of the H said...

"that is what the waitress wears to work?

i bet she makes a shitload in tips."

Yea she is quite popular. You can't see it in that pick, but she has got a great ass for a tiny girl.

Spaceman Spiff said...

tune in at the sweet 16? ridiculous, just stick to watching the pats, sawks, and celtics

Tyler said...

What Bruce Springsteen song were you playing while she was dancing? Dancing in the Dark?

JFreak said...

"those are the best two rounds in the tourney."

check that, those are the best 4 days in sports, period.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

EP, waay too early for K-Rod.

Like Matt Berry says, Don't pay for saves

JFreak said...

"Like Matt Berry says, Don't pay for saves"

Matthew Berry is an idiot.

tem said...

matt berry is a loser

JFreak said...

mmod won't let me watch any game but kansas-portland st.

Paralyzer by Finger Eleven

Tyler said...

Or was it Glory Days?

Tyler said...

Maybe I'm on Fire?

Tyler said...

I'm Goin' Down?

Tyler said...

My Hometown?

iamresurrected said...

i usually barter for slaves. that way, both us have a product that will depreciate.

iamresurrected said...

Paralyzer by Finger Eleven"

so sad to see what theyve become.

Tyler said...

My Springteen run wasn't so funny right after he had answered the question.

JFreak said...

"Paralyzer by Finger Eleven"

I didn't know they had any songs other than one thing.

iamresurrected said...

dealing with this new group of people is going to make my brain explode inside my skull.

Return of the H said...

that's why I was quick to respond Tyler. I know you're used to me going hours between comments. Decided to hang around for a bit today.

iamresurrected said...

I didn't know they had any songs other than one thing."

i thought u liked history. research is needed.

iamresurrected said...

the postal service commercial is a blue ball fer shure.

JFreak said...

i counted the times they say "thing" in that song once.

i think it was 50+.

iamresurrected said...

why would anyone buy the Daughtry cd? these fucking songs are on all got'amn day. theyve got to play his shit at least one per hour.

iamresurrected said...

except u cant tell the difference between any of em

tem said...

i am doing an IM thing with some chase customer service rep.

i axe her a new question about every 10 minutes.

iamresurrected said...

OMFG

jemele hill whipping out the race card faster than evar!1!

tem said...

the post office gives iam blue balls?

iamresurrected said...

theyve got those blue boxes too

tem said...

clearly i am talking to a different person each IM because i am now just asking the same questions over and over again and they keep answering them

On this day in 1965...

Bill Bradley, the Princeton basketball star playing in his last college game, set a Final Four points-scoring record in the NCAA championship consolation game.

JFreak said...

xavier mcdaniels came storming back.

tem said...

if you mess around on the chase site looking at checking and savings accounts long enough a pop up will appear axing if you want to chat with a person.

JFreak said...

They should go back to playing the third place game.

tem said...

they don't even do the consolation game anymore.

why did they stop?

Tyler said...

You think Jemele Hill ever dated a white guy? I'm going to argue no, that never happened.
