Post Count Enhancer

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. The Tribe took out the CAA's first-place team last night, dropping Northeastern, 68-63. Combined with VCU's equally inexplicable loss to UNC-Wilmington, the result ensures that the conference won't grab an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Whatever. That just means more fun at the CAA Tournament, March 6-9 in Richmond. Futile Superfans should make plans now to miss work on Friday, March 6. The Tribe is still in the driver's seat for the 12 seed and a 2:30 tip. D.C. area G:TBers will leave the Nation's Capital at 11:00 or so and get to Richmond in time to meet Whitney for a quick lunch and a few cold beers. Should the impossible happen and W&M ascends to the 11 seed, we'll change the departure time to accomodate dinner and a few cold beers.

Mark, we'll pick you up at the airport on our way into town.

Hot CAA action? Count me in.

Driver's seat for the 12 seed. That is excellent, both conceptually and linguistically.

Dennis said...

I'm in.

Dennis said...

Oh and, if anyone cares to zoom in a little closer on the local area sports map, huge week for your Dominion Titans:

You forgot to clear this little adventure with the home office, Russell. Your baby girl's birthday party is Friday, March 6 at 4PM, and she would be devastated if you missed it.

rob said...

well, fuck.

Mark said...

Well, doesn't she love CAA basketball? Party at the CAA tourney. TJ will even dress up as some type of furry animal!

Once again, I'm glad that I'm a deadbeat dad who lives hours away from his bastards.

Samantha said...

There's always Saturday...

rob said...

now that's funny.

i've heard tell of these things with the days of the week on them where you can keep track of what you have to do. i should investigate.

TJ said...

My Mayor McCheese costume will be perfect.

Mark said...

If TeeJay goes as Mayor McCheese, I'll dress up as the Hamburglar.

rob said...

please make this happen.

TJ said...

Pay us you diminutive fool.

rob said...

i'll buy your tickets to the game.

Mark said...

Wow, way to make it worth it for us, Rob. What are CAA tourney tickets, $10?

And by the way, I do have mascot/costumed character experience as I donned the Easter Bunny costume one Easter Sunday while working in the minors. I have the pictures to prove it.

rob said...

tickets are at least $12.

rob said...

i'm sure mark's seen lane kiffin's recent comments regarding the gators, but wow:

he's either really, really dumb or carrying a serious pair.

zoltan said...

Fantastic non-names in that link. Lane, Urban, Nu'Keese, Marsalis, and written by Dashiell.

Mark said...

Yea, I've seen it. He's really dumb. First off, its not an NCAA violation. Secondly, Urban's gonna drop 60 on him in the Swamp next year.

It's comforting to hate Tennessee with every fiber of my being again.

rob said...

that was my first thought - mark's gonna enjoy it even more when the gators shitstomp the vols next year.

TJ said...

Jerry needs to work with Danica and that other whore for GoDaddy

rob said...

you guys see the beat phil ivy took on the super bowl? he had arizona +3.5 for the first half. the harrison pick cost him $800k. 'course, he had arizona +7 for the game, so he wound up only losing the vig on the first bet, but still...waugh.

Mark said...

Tyronn Lue is going to be a part of the Orlando Magic for the second time in his career. Yaay!

God, I'm not looking forward to watching his sorry little ass running around for the next 30+ games.

TJ said...

Did I just see Whopper hand Whopper jr an "extra napkin" for coitus?

TJ said...

Keith Bogans and cash considerations for Lue? A Susan B Anthony dollar?

Mark said...

These Whopper commercials are, how you say, not new, TJ.

rob said...

i'm not sure, but i think jerry may have been mocking me this afternoon.

not cool, man. not cool.

Mark said...

It's a definite possibility, Rob. Here's the question though. Did you have to check that link before you knew you were being mocked?

rob said...

never checked the link. just figured jerry was making a funny. a sadly deserved funny. is it an actual link?

Mark said...

No sir. Jerry make joke.

Mark said...

Rob...you notice that Lane Kiffin has already been reprimanded by the SEC Commish and issued a half assed apology to UF and Urban Meyer?

Methinks this guy doesn't have a fucking clue about how tough the SEC is and that he might, just might end up looking like a major league jackass within the next couple of years.

rob said...

that lovable scamp.

rob said...

jerry, not lane. though i concur completely re: kiffin. dude's gonna get a rude awakening.
