Final Four

I was watching some collitch bball this weekend. One thing I noticed is that refs still count using their arm when a guy is bringing the ball up from the back court. I don't understand that. I know why they did it back in the day, but nowadays you've got the shot clock at bolth ends of the court. Do we really need the refs doing "one Mississippi, two Mississippi" with their arms while walking up court with the ball handler? I'm not a scientist, but I would bet that the shot clock is more accurate than a dude counting in his head while trying to focus on the game in front of him.

The Final Four match ups are pretty good. Both are rematches from games earlier this season. OSU played at KU without Foullinger* earlier and lost a close game. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble on Saturday. UK is so redonk. Calipari is amazing. I don't know if he's cheating like he has everywhere else, he probably is, but the talent he recruits is amazing. To lose what he's lost the last 2 seasons from guys leaving early, and getting this team of basically all freshman and sophomores to blow everyone out really is something something.

Tiger won this weekend. Don't know if you heard. Mize was thrilled. I say whoopty doo. Don't get me wrong, when Tiger is in contention, and when he wins, it's good for golf. I get it. But winning 1 tourney doesn't mean he's back. He won 1 tourney, for the first time since 2009. And it was at a course that he had won at 6 times before. He's probably played that course 250 times in his life. If he wins the FedEx Cup this year, then I'll say he's back. But this was 1 win.

Draw Something is drawsome.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love having a kid? It's the best thing in the world. NS

I think my favorite country song ever is either The Gambler or The Rodeo Song. What's yours?

There is a keeper league?

tem said...

I love how inconsistent the refs are. Cuse against tOSU everything was a foul. Kansas vs UNC they were letting them play. Of course they'd throw in a no call or a nickel and dime foul here and there to keep the players guessing.

spiff is funny asian

El Padrino said...

refs are bad in every sport

even hockey

tem said...

rough touch football refs are the worse*

El Padrino said...

they are

El Padrino said...

and they are afraid of black people and spanish gangsters

tem said...

they should be

El Padrino said...

i did not see louisville coming

pitino has done a better job than calipari i mean luisvillie* has no damn offense

Blue said...

fucking spanish gangsters are no joke

tem said...

in recent history the big east champ always makes the final 4.

Blue said...

yes, most recently this year

ToddPacker said...

"pitino has done a better job than calipari i mean luisvillie* has no damn offense"

no

El Padrino said...

"Mike McCoy [offensive coordinator] is really flexible and smart."


key word is flexible

jim harbuagh is not felxible

tem said...

"yes, most recently this year"

and the year before and the year before and maybe the year before.

tem said...

i think this is 4 years in a row that the big east tourney champ has made the final four

Spiff was sunday drinking.

Meiz said...

"One thing I noticed is that refs still count using their arm when a guy is bringing the ball up from the back court."


And for the 5 second inbound count. Ridiculous.

Blue said...

well, 5 second inbounds count make sense right?

the clock isn't running

tem said...

your face is running

Meiz said...

"the clock isn't running"


They could have a stopwatch or something. A 5 second alarm.

El Padrino said...

how is a ref supposed to watch the seconds fall off the shot clock and watch the action

the arm counting allows them to watch the action while counting

if they cannot count and watch basketball at the same time they need to get put to sleep like an old sick dog

Meiz said...

V-Mart's out for the year, right?

El Padrino said...

yes

Spaceman Spiff said...

"Martin sent a text to The Eagle saying he had not spoken with anyone about other openings."

so him and SC texted about the opening, got it

"Earlier Monday, Martin’s agent, Richard Katz, said “we have had conversations” with South Carolina, but would not say a deal was done."

deal was done, got it

Keef said...

Kansas State coach Frank Martin, who spent seven years at the helm of three high school teams in the 1990s before joining Northeastern University as an assistant coach, says he regularly paid collegiate players who had played for him in high school when they had nowhere else to turn.

I don't think Jared Sullinger should of* been 1st team AA

Pretty tough to get him on hate crime laws unless you want to use the grainy 911 call where he calls him a coon.

Not sure if that would suffice.

except the fact, he shot him because he was a black kid walking through his neighborhood

im SAS that the killer hasn't been killed already. A Time to Kill style.

Keef said...

I don't understand the stand your ground law in this case. Dude was driving in a car, following this kid who was walking down the street. Dude obviously got out of his car to approach the kid, no?

Meiz said...

"except the fact, he shot him because he was a black kid walking through his neighborhood"


Fair enough.

Keef said...

RIP Skittles challenge. You were a MSOAB

"florida law is nuts, he'll never get charged and if he does he will not be found guilty because of the stand your ground law they have"


Jed Bush said Stand Your Ground doesn't encompass this situation.

Jugdish said...

i need to read on this story...haven't seen much news lately

Blue said...

and didn't he shoot him in the back..

that's not really stand your ground

Spaceman Spiff said...

"bags don't come with that many reds."

and if they did, they would have been eaten, suspicious indeed

Meiz said...

And don't forget Zimmerman ignored instructions to not pursue Martin.

Spaceman Spiff said...

"and didn't he shoot him in the back.."

no

El Padrino said...

"And don't forget Zimmerman ignored instructions to not pursue Martin."

froma 911 dispatcher who has no authority over anything

Keef said...

i need to read on this story...haven't seen much news lately




It hasn't really been in the news that much

Keef said...

LP obviously thinks the shooting is ok

El Padrino said...

"Dude obviously got out of his car to approach the kid, no?"

yes, then the kid whupped that ass and he "feared" for his life and shot him in the chest

Keef said...

what if he would of* shot him in the face?

Keef said...

"And don't forget Zimmerman ignored instructions to not pursue Martin."



dispatcher: Who is following the goon*?

Zimmerman: I am them

dispatcher: You am them?

El Padrino said...

i dont think it's ok, everything about this story is wrong

as a neighborhood watch guy you called 911, that's it, hang up and drive home to your family

i think its a tragedy that a 17 year old died

and i think it was wrong for the guy to follow him him

and choosing to shoot him was wrong

there is no way you feel that threatened especially if you out weight the kid by 100 lbs i mean has this guy ever been punched in the face before?

it's a tragic story

tem said...

it is step 1 to tent city.

Spaceman Spiff said...

"out weight"

"i mean has this guy ever been punched in the face before?"

that's why he had a gun

Jugdish said...

everything about this story is wrong



everything about your face is wrong

Keef said...

FACE

El Padrino said...

you see someone suspicious

you call 911

you did your part

you dont confront the kid, then get embarrassed by getting put on the ground by a 17 year old then shoot him with tech 9

jesus

i tried staying away from this story but it's all over

El Padrino said...

now it's practically dividing a country

even though the guy who shot him is a spanish

Spaceman Spiff said...

"Zimmerman told police he he'd lost sight of Martin and was heading back to his car when the youth suddenly stepped into his path. According to the Sentinel, Martin asked Zimmerman if he had a problem. Zimmerman said no and reached for his cellphone. Martin then said something like, "Well, you do now" and punched him"

hilarity

Keef said...

even though the guy who shot him is a spanish



awesome

Blue said...

shouldn't the neighborhood watch guy...like know who his neighbors are?

El Padrino said...

he was not the neighbor he lives in miami was visiting his dad in the orlando suburb

tem said...

if the kid punched him then there is no way the dude is going to jail for shooting the kid.

tem said...

this story has too much different info.

he is a neighborhood watch guy, he isn't a neighborhood watch guy, he is one, but not for the neighborhood.

he shot the kid in the back, he shot the kid in the face, he shot the kid in the chest.

the kid punched him, the kid never touched him

the kid had skittles, the kid had iced tea, the kid had starburst, the kid had a mellow yellow.

El Padrino said...

the kid punched him, apparentely, he broked* his nose and struck him in the back of the head

nothing excuses this guy for using deadly force

tem said...

"CNN/ORC poll: Nearly one in three Americans thinks the Supreme Court should overturn the entire 2010 health care law. "

Some residents of his gated townhouse community declared that Zimmerman was known for being strict and that he went door to door asking them to be on the lookout for "young black men who appear to be outsiders"




normal
(S)

Keef said...

Zimmerman asserted self-defense, telling police he had stepped out of his truck to check the name of the street he was on


His truck must not have any windows

Keef said...

unreal that the police just sent the body to the morgue as John Doe and didn't check his cell phone for someone to call to ID him

tem said...

"Police Chief Bill Lee voluntarily went on paid administrative leave last week, saying his presence had become a distraction"


umm, can i go on voluntary paid leave?

Blue said...

is your presence a distraction in the office?

tem said...

i can make it be one if i get to just go on a paid vacation.

Blue said...

"Some residents of his gated townhouse community declared that Zimmerman was known for being strict and that he went door to door asking them to be on the lookout for "young black men who appear to be outsiders""

wonder if he said this to the black people who live there? or just the spanishs

El Padrino said...

that 127 hours movie was fun

s

tem said...

he said it to all the woman

Meiz said...

Zimmerman has also allegedly called 911 FORTY SIX times since January 2011. The guy's a fuckin psychopath.

Blue said...

he called 911 46 times, and only one person got killed.

pretty good odds.

Spaceman Spiff said...

"The guy's a fuckin psychopath."

somebody had hurt him previously

Spaceman Spiff said...

but who?

tem said...

nobody hurt him. he just thinks he is better than "you"

tem said...

46 times is less than once a week.

Blue said...

"that 127 hours movie was fun"

shit ended really quickly...it was like, well now he's out and getting in a helicopter. I mean, did he just all of a sudden decide to cut his arm off?

Spaceman Spiff said...

"Some residents of his gated townhouse community declared that Zimmerman was known for being strict and that he went door to door asking them to be on the lookout for "young black men who appear to be outsiders"

bet the residents were secretly like 'fuck yes'. no lose situation, got some paranoid racist dude on neighborhood watch, and if something like this happens, it's all on him

El Padrino said...

"I mean, did he just all of a sudden decide to cut his arm off?"

he tried but the knife was too dull to cut through the bone

then after 121 hours he figured out that if he broke his arm he can use the dull knife because he wont have to cut through bone

gnarly

Meiz said...

"somebody had hurt him previously"


Good call. Always relevant.

You just like overpaying for stuff?

if he punched somebody in the nose they'd shoot him for wearing a hoodie

"Scared to go to Walmart?"

first of all i dont have a wal-mart that i can go to on a regular basis
