PerfectThe Opposite of...

Well, if you're going to go 0-4 on the teams you would like to see win, at least only 3 of the 4 games were crushing.

At least Bradley had the decency to get blown out. Duke played one of the worst games I can remember a Blue Devil squad playing, and still was rightthere.

Sweet comeback by WVU, and then a scrubby-scrub makes an off-balance, leg-splayed, eyes-closed 28 foot heave at the buzzer to beat them. [Edit - Ok, Paulino is a 42% 3pt. shooter. It was still a ludicrously bullshit shot.)

Gonzaga simply commits one of the epic chokes in modern sports histories. In fact the only good thing to come from today is that I can remind my readers that the Zags choke was at best #2 in the last 2 years.


Happy Place


I'm not even sure how to use my empircally demonstrated evil-hexing powers for tommorow. I want Washington and Georgetown to win, would prefer George Mason and mostly just want a good game between Nova and BC. So, naturally, Marcus Williams (Felony Included) will score 35, and run down press row slapping fives while snatching laptops. Georgetown will shoot 16 percent from the field. Wichita State will win in a game that looks like one of my old D-III Jv games, letting Packer crow about how bad mid-majors are, and BC-Nova will end up 37-33 in a game worse than the Wisconsin-Michigan State semifinal from a few years back.

I love the madness...

I almost headed downtown to try and pick up a ticket to see Duke-LSU. Glad I didn't because that was one of the ugliest games I've ever watched. It's a shame someone had to win.

As it turns out, Spring allergies hit and I was in a Claritin coma. Went to bed early and happened to wake up for the last 20 seconds of Gonzaga-UCLA. Yep, a classic choke job.

That game was lodged in the throat long before the last twenty seconds...

Don't watch a lot of college ball, but I haven't seen Duke choke like that since that game against Indiana in--was it 2002?

I wanted Duke to lose and still got all choked up. I'm rooting for all the same teams as you tonight (though for bracket purposes, I would like BC and UCONN - I am still in the hunt...)
