And we're dancing, yeahhh!

Some teams I don't like:
UCONN: I hate their coach. Whatever his name is.
Washington: Pac-10 sucks.
Pittsburgh: They've never beaten a 4 seed or higher. Stands to reason they will lose when they play one (against Xavier in the Sweet Sixteen).
Louisville: Pintino is greasy.
UCkLA: Pac-10 sucks.
Purdue: Purdue is the most vile, disgusting university known to man.
Gonzaga: They get hyped undeservedly.

Some teams I do like:
Wake Forest: Jeff Teague, baby. Representing the 46268.
North Dakota State: Little chance they beat Kansas, but there always seems to be a good story underdog that makes the second round. And first year of eligibility is a good story.
Missouri: I love the fullcourt press.
Memphis: 30 wins is no joke. The inevitable sweet 16 matchup with Mizzou is very intriguing.
Tennessee: I don't really have a reason, but I had to talk myself out saying they will beat Pitt in the second round.
Oklahoma: Blake Griffin is large.

Non-tournament buzzer beaters


Tournament buzzer beaters


Suck it, Boeheim.

"Purdue: Purdue is the most vile, disgusting university known to man."

"Keith S said...

& Dr. Dre"


I hope you get run over by a stray Pontiac

El Padrino said...

i like where your heads at today freak

El Padrino said...

if you dont like Purdue and you dont like Wash, who is your 2nd round matchup and furthermore if you think UCONN exits before the elite 8 then you would have had to pick one of them, most likely purdue because they are the better, over UCONN in the Regionals


esplain

Meiz said...

All he said was that he doesn't like them.

I don't like Carolina, but I have them in the final.

El Padrino said...

i know pitt's history, but they are really, really good this year

Meiz said...

I'm hoping to skate out of here at 2 today. Maybe pick up some wings & a twelver.

Steve said...

I did not know that about Pit.

Considering a change.

tem said...

i am skating out at noonish.

going to a BW3s that will be packed with people.

El Padrino said...

i thkn kyour wrong about the ZAGS, i think this team is few's best

El Padrino said...

every year i say it, never do it

take off, take the day off

Meiz said...

"every year i say it, never do it

take off, take the day off"



Much easier said than done

Blue said...

i have my routine for today down pat...watch the 1st half of the early games online. Head to the bar and watch the 2nd half of the early games and 1st half of the late games....come back and finish watching the late games online.

work for 2 hours, and get home before the next set of games start

Blue said...

and since cmblue doesn't work anymore, staying home and watching is no longer an option...

i shoulda taken today off and not told her, and spent the day at ESPNzone

El Padrino said...

"i shoulda taken today off and not told her, and spent the day at ESPNzone"

eggsactly

Meiz said...

That settles it. Blue's rich.

Blue said...

why am i rich?

El Padrino said...

anybody that makes more than 15K a year is rich according to meiz

Blue said...

oh

Meiz said...

So I'm rich? Sweet.

Meiz said...

"why am i rich?"


"cmblue doesn't work anymore"

Blue said...

she doesn't work anymore because daycare is expensive

tem said...

woe

Meiz said...

Sure, Blue. Blame it on the kid.

tem said...

kids are easy targets

Blue said...

they're not easy targets, they're slippery and hard to hit

tem said...

they are slow and weak.

Blue said...

no, they're sneaky fast

tem said...

so if you and your kid were to race she'd win because she is so fast?

JFreak said...

"All he said was that he doesn't like them."

The man's got it.

Blue said...

what kind of race?

JFreak said...

"the non tournament buzzer beaters have lots of tournament games in them."

shhh

JFreak said...

"what kind of race?"

A race to poop in your pants.

Blue said...

what time does the first tourney game start?

JFreak said...

12:20 ET.

tem said...

blue is just saying things to kill time before the games.

kids are slow and easy to catch and easy to hit.

they are weak and easy targets.

everyone knows this.

Meiz said...

All you really need is a playground ball, and you could destroy a little kid's life.

Blue said...

or a bunny slope apparently

JFreak said...

Tubby Smith is 13-1 in first round games.

tem said...

freak is a fountain of tourney knowledge.

tem said...

"or a bunny slope apparently"

too soon.

El Padrino said...

let's live in denver

El Padrino said...

"Tubby Smith is 13-1 in first round games."

14-1 after today

Blue said...

the news here was all over that stupid natasha richardson story...and the one thing that pissed me off they said "we just don't know if she'd have been wearing a helmet would have prevented this injury, sometimes even a helmet can't prevent serious injury"

bullshit, if you have a helmet on, on the bunny slope it prevents that injury. if you have a helmet on and smash into a rock or a tree, probably won't help.

El Padrino said...

but serious and i consider myself a big time active guy as far as playing sports and whatnot, i nerve had great desire to ski regualary

snowboarded once, cracked my damn tailbone, would do it again though, helmet is a must though

tem said...

people should wear helmets at all times.

tem said...

i have nerve skied.

El Padrino said...

i skied once or twice
didnt tickle my fancy

snowboarding to me is the better

Blue said...

i've been skiing since i was 6. i probably wouldn't enjoy it, if i was just starting up

kodiac said...

FWIW I have ND St. pulling the upset. I'm not in love with Kansas, ND St. has a bunch of seniors, height and can drain 3's and ft's better than most.

-Plus, it's in Minneapolis, it will basically be a home game for them...their fan base is rabid.

kodiac said...

"Tubby Smith is 13-1 in first round games."

14-1 after today

I sure hope you're right.

El Padrino said...

Fraek listen up, keeper league question.

proposal

I get:
Liriano and 10th (1st round) overall pick

I give up:
My 4th round pick and Matt Kemp

Blue said...

"-Plus, it's in Minneapolis, it will basically be a home game for them...their fan base is rabid."


yeah, all 12 of them

tem said...

i don't even remember who i picked now.

i am shooting for dead last though.

tem said...

"their fan base is rabid."

he meant that most of their fan base is rabib animals.

like racoons and moose and beavers.

Blue said...

Kod realizes this is basketball right, not hockey

isiah thomas said...

IIIIIIIITTTTT'SSSSSS

THUURRRRSSSDAYYYYYYY!!!!!!

kodiac said...

yeah, all 12 of them

Fargo's not that small of a town (plus, most in Morehead, MN right across the river adopt them as well).

-They've played Minni before and outnuber us, and make way more noise...like I said, rabid.

tem said...

don't fuck with a rabid moose.

kodiac said...

Kod realizes this is basketball right, not hockey

Hey, Bemidji State made the NCAA DI tourney this year in hockey

I'm excited

Blue said...

"plus, most in Morehead, MN right across the river adopt them as well)."

they're rooting for Morehead state this year

Blue said...

ok, kod has convinced me, i'm changing my pick...even though they've never been to the tourney and will be like a deer in headlights, but i think they could get to the elite 8 now

isiah thomas said...

if this Dodd guy was a republican cnn's headline would read


REPUBLICAN SENATOR OK'S BONUS!


REPUBLICAN'S SUPPORT AIG AND BONUS!

*BONI?

JFreak said...

"I get:
Liriano and 10th (1st round) overall pick

I give up:
My 4th round pick and Matt Kemp"

The move up in draft picks makes it worth it. But Kemp is better than Liriano, especially since you're already keeping 2 pitchers.

tem said...

they'd play wvu or dayton in round 2.

wvu knows how to shoot moose.

tem said...

dayton can fly or something

isiah thomas said...

that one white pg on NDST is da TROOF.

Blue said...

i'm ok with the boni* as long as they all either resign or commit suicide

isiah thomas said...

Kemp rhymes with Hemp

don't do it

kodiac said...

but i think they could get to the elite 8 now

sweet 16 is possible (ns); I have them there in one of my brackets (maybe the LOV one, I don't remember)

El Padrino said...

zeke dont you love how the dems are already turning on each other

i fucking love it

dodd says obama did it
obama says geithner did it
geithner says dodd did it

hahahahahahaa

isiah thomas said...

Wake, Mempho, Pitt, Zaga

Mempho, Pitt

Mempho

final answer

kodiac said...

they'd play wvu or dayton in round 2.

really? never mind then...I think WVU is going to the elite 8

El Padrino said...

keeping kemp
forget it, although having two first rounders is nice but what's the point i cant keep em

isiah thomas said...

zeke dont you love how the dems are already turning on each other

true dat

I'm not trying to derail us on this glorius day but the wheels are falling off the Osama bandwagon.

JFreak said...

Why the hell do I need to know who Obama picked?

This is absurd.

If this was Bush, people would be yelling about him goofing off and not doing his job.

El Padrino said...

greasy pitino will win it all

El Padrino said...

i like the word absurd

El Padrino said...

i wish i was still downtown, thye have the best bars for ncaa coverage

jersey is the armpit of america
i hate it

Blue said...

it's humanizing...much like him going on Leno tonight...trying to show he's just a normal guy, not some stuffed suit, or crazy retard

El Padrino said...

fuck grass

concrete >> grass

isiah thomas said...

what if Lebron said this after he missed a potential game winning buzzer beater:

"Yeah I took that last shot and missed, but it wasn't my fault we were down to begin with. It's not my fault the coach was calling a bad game and delonte was getting lit up on D. But I'm the leader and I'm going to take the last shot, the buck stops with me, even though it wasn't my fault we lost and I'm the reason we win"

?

isiah thomas said...

Why the hell do I need to know who Obama picked?


Katz is a walking Charmulka*, jeebus that guy is really jewish.

Blue said...

lebron does say that

isiah thomas said...

jersey is the armpit of america

Oxnard, CA disagrees.

isiah thomas said...

Why the hell do I need to know who Obama picked?


and why was Osama using that old skool Cosby "picture pages" like marker to do his bracket?

shit was hilarity, all it was missing was that noise the PP marker made.

Blue said...

"jersey is the armpit of america

Oxnard, CA disagrees."

so does the entire state of North Dakota

isiah thomas said...

NFN, I'd never heard of Natasha Richardson before this week.

RIP

hopefully the next two celebs are more well known

isiah thomas said...

Lil' Wayne on espn2.

isiah thomas said...

so does the entire state of North Dakota

Minnesota and Wisconsin are staring in disapproval

El Padrino said...

no really, take a look at america, maine is like an arm extended, jersey is right in that crevice where an armpit would be

no one can talk me out of this

jersey smells, highest rate of cancer, three top ten cities with tremendous crime, horriffic drivers and no decent tourist attraction other than a couple of nice beaches

isiah thomas said...

if Skip Bayless's heart exploded, he'll still talk uncontrollably for 10 mins (think chicken with head cut-off running around)

isiah thomas said...

oh Joisee sucks fo sho.

fo sho

El Padrino said...

atlantic city outside the casinos is a crack infested cesspool of monsters

El Padrino said...

walk alone, 3am through elizabeth NJ

100% chance your getting popped

Blue said...

we were signing a contract with a national vendor, and the sales rep told me, "one caveat, we don't service North or South Dakota, in case you ever open up business there"

I just laughed hysterically, and told him "i don't think that'll be an issue"

isiah thomas said...

EP you hear that something like 76% of C was shorted? shorts taking it hard now.

crazy

El Padrino said...

newark = capital of Colombia

El Padrino said...

"EP you hear that something like 76% of C was shorted? shorts taking it hard now.

crazy"

yeah, but in most cases they are long the preferred stock

NS

article fails to mention that i bet

kodiac said...

Minnesota and Wisconsin are staring in disapproval

Minneapolis/St. Paul area is pretty nice; so is Madison, Wisconsin.

El Padrino said...

true though, alot of net short clients still out there not 76% though

kodiac said...

no one can talk me out of this

jersey smells, highest rate of cancer, three top ten cities with tremendous crime, horriffic drivers and no decent tourist attraction other than a couple of nice beaches

agreed

Blue said...

all it is is a hedge though, cover their asses


it's a game to them


it's not a fucking game

El Padrino said...

hence HEDGE fund

isiah thomas said...

Roy Williams = Huckleberry Hound

*insert "I'll be your Huckleberry" quote here

Blue said...

correct EP

good use of hence


if they're short somewhere, more than likely they're long somewhere else

isiah thomas said...

article fails to mention that i bet

yeah it mentions something about the converino of preferred to common or some shit.

Blue said...

converino is italian

isiah thomas said...

EP what's this "triple witching hour" deal?

isiah thomas said...

JFreak said...

"Bitch, take your 55k a week and be gone"

Thanks stevefast.

Meiz said...

"everyone have mmod fired up?"


Nope

JFreak said...

"do we neeed to fire mmod up early?"

Doesn't appear as such, there was no waiting room.

Meiz said...

Meiz said...

This is gonna end up being more true than you know.
