YOUR SUPER SWEET SIXTEEN IS…

Well, my bracket is fucked, but at least it happened in the most delightful manner: a pretty terrific first four days of March Madness that left things looking <a href="http://66.18.100.114/WebForm1.aspx?SID=1161&Tournament=10&League=0&Complete=1" target="_blank">like this</a>.

Alright, the West Virginia star cager didn't actually say that, but <a href="http://thequad.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/03/22/mocking-duke/" title="NY Times" target="_blank">he did say</a>:Alexander on breaking down Duke on film: “We knew that coming in that they were just going to stand around and not rebound.

OK, my bracket looks like a World War I French battle plan, but I suppose that's what I get for penciling DePaul in on the play-in game line.

UNBELIEVABLE

I don't know what else you might have been doing on Good Friday besides skipping out of work early to watch the NCAA tourney, but if you did anything but that, it sucks to be you, because the <a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaab/recap;_ylt=AuMB_xtL7Q.9OVZ97qRwnRDevbYF?gid=200803210170" target="_blank">Drake-Western Kentucky game</a> was unbelievably excellent.

Gonzaga may have lost, but at least no one was crying on court before the game ended.

DICK VITALE IS CREEPILY NOT PHOTOSHOPPED

By | 14 Comments

Good news for everyone who showed up this morning hoping to see an annoying old man wearing a ball gown, because Dick Vitale donned Cinderella gear to advertise Tampa's tourney games in what is almost certainly the sexiest Tampa Tribune of all time.

I don't care how far you have Duke going in your bracket, the sheer joy of them losing in the first round to 15th-seeded Belmont would have been too awesome for words.

Marquette owned the lead throughout the second half, but Kentucky refused to go away, getting to within a basket in the final minute.

PHEW! XAVIER ESCAPES SCARE FROM GEORGIA

By | 38 Comments

I have a close friend whose die-hard Cincinnati-area homerism leads me to favor Xavier every March, so -- because I have no information or opinions of my own about the NCAAs -- I have them going to the Elite 8 in the only pool I have money on.

Spencer Hall is <a href="http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/TheSportingBlog/142638/" target="_blank">in Las Vegas</a> for the first four days of March Madness, and like any good Southerner one of his first stops was the indoor gun range, where he used his marksmanship to make his tourney picks.

Okay, tip-off for March Madness was a few minutes ago, and from here on out my priority will be drinking beer and watching basketball.

SELECTION SUNDAY MADNESS

By | 3 Comments

I've spent the last several days (justifiably) disparaging the Big Ten tourney, but this ridiculous ending to Minnesota's upset of Indiana (via <a href="http://www.faniq.com/blog/Blake-Hoffarber-Hits-Miracle-Shot-Minnesota-Upsets-Indiana-Blog-7332" target="_blank">Fan IQ</a>) goes a long way in making up for all that painful-to-watch hoops -- Blake Hoffarber's miracle shot has definitely given me an anticipatory hard-on for the tourney this week.
