|Shall we ice now or shall we ice later?|
Anyway, after an average performance in the poker room, Damman and I took a run at the blackjack tables. I got shockingly hot (for me at least since I am a garbage blackjack player) and managed to come out dead even on the night. Right before we got up to leave, this dumb Mexican sat down at the table and wanted to play with two of his migrant worker friends watching. He put $20 on the table even though the minimum was $25. The dealer told him he needed to put out more money. He just smiled. The dealer said it two or three more times. He kept smiling. Eventually, he just picked up his wadded up 20 and left. It was terrific. Mexicans are great comedy fodder. And I mention this as a horrible segue that I made a huge pot of chili with beans yesterday. It was amazing because beans are great. DEAL WITH IT. Anyway, on with the hoops talk:
Ryan Kelly is the greatest player of all time - I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about this Gorgon being the heart and soul of heartless and soulless program. The guy sucks. There, I said it. I don't care that he dropped 36 fluke points on The U. As always, it is going to be a great day when Duke gets knocked out of the tournament.
Georgetown is a 1 seed??? - So says Joey Brackets! I have a hard time believing this since the Hoyas haven't won a tournament game since the Kaiser was running Germany. JTIII is sort of assy as a coach. While G'Town is almost always as OVERRATED as Peyton Manning, I really like Otto Porter. He is definitely on my top 3 list of guys I want the Cavs to draft this year (no Shabazz; Porter, Oladipo, and McLemore are MY GUYS!). If you wanted to see a 16 beat a 1 though, you should root for the Hoyas or Michigan to be on the top line.
Sorry, Seal, but UK ain't getting in - I watched them lose to a fairly average Arkansas team on Saturday and I'm just not seeing it. That can change with a home win over Florida this week, but, ugh, that does not look like a team peaking at the right time. Never forget your championship though.
Sorry again, Seal, but neither is Akron - LOL Dambrot is such a dipshit. Keep racking up those 25-6 seasons only to not even be considered as an at-large team because you refuse to play anyone. It's like they're playing chicken with the selection committee and the NCAA is all like "you're not going to win, troll". Getting crushed by a bad Buffalo team on Saturday has left the MAC with only one possible bid for Ohio and Akron (no one else has a chance). I hate both of them.
Coach K is still a Satanic Rat - I'm normally against court stormings and it has been talked about hear ad nauseum in the past, but if Rat Boy wants it banned then I have no other choice than to demand it happen after every game. You know, just like they do at Ohio U because they are stupid as fuck.
Is Gonzaga the #1 overall seed? - Who cares? There is no advantage to being the #1 #1. Did I miss where they give you a bye to the title game? I don't really trust the Zags though. They're bigs are terrific but the guards are sketchy.
Trey Burke Sucks - I'm writing this before the Sparty/TBS game and I'll just assume that Aaron Craft's Bitch remains bad. I also assume that Sparty will roll since they are way better than Penn State. Remember when you lost to them? WE ON!
Plenty of stuff to talk about today and I didn't even have to troll-poke the big retarded bear in the room. If you think that I'm talking about you it's because I am. Speaking of bears, I watched Ted yesterday. I wasn't sure that I'd like it but was most definitely wrong. Even my stupid wife thought it was great. I give it two paws up. Count it.
