|Oh. Hi Joan!|
Out West - Rick Pitino is heading back to the Final Four with his Louisville Cardinals and army of dead babies. This team interests me somewhere between one and zero percent. I do not care for their style of rugged, physical basketball even if they do play up tempo (my preference). Sure, they are solid. Siva and that guy that spurned UC are both pretty good but, you know, whatever. I'm more intrigued by the delightful choking of Billy Donovan's team who absolutely pissed that game away. Irving Walker has never met a terrible shot with 30 seconds left on the shot clock that he didn't love. In my personal opinion, Louisville did not win on Saturday, Florida lost because they took horrible shot after horrible shot. Anyway, does anybody think that Pitino is going to win a game in NOLA? I do not.
Back East - Well, well, well...Ohio State is traveling down to The French Quarter. Honestly, they are playing great ball right now and they deserve to still be playing. I may want to watch Aaron Craft get raped by a gang of Mayans but you have to give credit when it is due. It is due here. And I'm happy for Thad. He needed this. No, it's not like his job is in jeopardy at all, but he needed to get back to the Final Four just to shut up any critics. There really is nothing more to say about the Fuckeyes because I feel as dirty as hippie hair for the above paragraph. The one good thing about this development is that King Douche Jim Boeheim fell short again. The guy is a cocksucker. Period. I wish nothing but continued failure from him. Good game but the better team won.
Hey, what about Friday? - X, NC State, and IU all lost. That UK/IU game was just amazingly entertaining. You were kidding yourself if you thought that the Hoosiers could possibly win, but it was the most fun game of the year nonetheless. And how about those Bobcats! You know what, fuck them. Those losers. I was rooting against them. Grumpy was, too. You never, ever, EVER root for your rival to have success. I will say that after watching Miami get their fucking hearts broken (AGAIN!) in the hockey tourney, I was scared shitless that I would have to watch Walter fucking Offutt beat Soulja Roy, too. I was not prepared to deal with that much heartbreak. I'm glad that it did not come to that. Fun game though. Be honest, you thought that DJ Cooper's last second heave was in, didn't you?
Down Souf - Let's be honest, no one can touch Kentucky. The only team that can beat Kentucky is Kentucky. Well, themselves and a terrifying few minutes where Anthony Davis's knee stremph was unknown. Is it just me or is Terence Jones just awful? He has all world talent but a Drew Gooden head. You know, that might be who he becomes eventually...Drew Gooden. He just pumps out good stats on horrible teams.
It's a Midwest Swaaaaaang, yaaaaaawwwww - Kansas and North Carolina put on a classic even though I was more engrossed with hour #3 of the goddamn fantasy baseball draft. Sumbitch, that took forever. Anyway, if you thought that UNC was going to keep winning with no PG, you were foolish. Beating OU was their ceiling. Can you imagine how hilarious it would have been to watch that little white shithead try to start the offense with Craft in his shorts? TOTES LOL! But the sickness of Thomas Robinson prevails and now we get us some rematches.
Prediction time! It really doesn't matter who wins on Saturday just as long as Louisville does not. No one wants to watch them play anymore. I will truly enjoy Kentucky vs. whoever wins the other win. THAT is what we want to see. I like Ohio State and Kentucky to play for it all on Monday night actually. The Buckeyes are just playing too well right now and owe the Jayhawks some payback. And UK isn't going to lose. Period.
Dut was talking about heading down to NOLA for the Final Four last night. Has anything new developed? Anyone else considering it? Flights are well over a grand right now! Seal going? Either way, the Final Four should be incredible next weekend.
