After giving it some thought – I kind of like it. It's good branding, a consistent look that reinforces the product.

If we were talking about the McDonald's BLT, which side of the styrofoam box would you be? The hot side or the cool side?

Sparty's going to have to play better than that to beat Louisville. I really think the winner of that game goes to the Final Four.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

St. Louis is a better team than the 9 seed they got. The teams in this area see them four times a year (they're in the A10 w/ Dayton and X). They swept X (and nearly cost them a tourney seed) by doing exactly what they did today....playing Wisconsin ball. Sparty will be OK for Louisville

Michigan has a great shot at the sweet sixteen, at which point it will be murderized by North Carolina.

Sparty got a No. 1 seed, but also got a horrible draw. If this team makes the Final Four, I'll eat my hat.

And the NCAA royally fucked several mid-majors by making them play each other early in the tournament.

Random thoughts: Is North Carolina really the second-best team in the country? Kansas or Mizzou deserved a No. 1 seed more, IMHO ... Duke does not deserve a No. 2 seed ... Murray State is better than a No. 6 seed ... Take it to the bank: Kentucky beats Kansas for the national title. Ohio State and Mizzou also make the Final Four.


I hate you. Why did I take your advice on for that portion of my bracket?

"Blind squirrel finds a nut" theory + a handful of blind emotional picks + a large group of disinterested / slow witted coworkers as competitors = Ansel leading the office pool with a very good shot at victory.

That's going to piss off the five people in the office that take it seriously.

Tell me there might be some cash coming your way and not just bragging rights like your lame fantasy football league.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.
