And Then There Were Thirty-Two

Consider this a forum for day 3 comedy rhombii, and a place to show some love for hoops-related mid-90's music for which no real videos appear to be available on YooToob. Guru had a heart attack and fell into a coma a few weeks ago, so show some love for Gang Starr even if the video is visually weak.

I don't understand why PALM is running the hell of that commercial with the woman buying shoes during the tourney. Not sure they are reaching their target audience.

Mark said...

No video available for Dwyck or even Mass Appeal?

Either way, always nice to have a little Gangstarr playing. Very underrated historically.

zoltan said...

DWYCK is my jam. I wreck the mic like a pimp pimps hos. But it isn't about basketball.

Mark said...

Oh yeah? Well, I get more props and stunts than Bruce Willis.

And yes, you're right...not about basketball.

Also, could somebody get Matthew Dellavedova a jersey that actually fits. He looks like the smallest kid in a youth league game the way hie jersey always falling off his shoulder.

Mark said...

I hate when one team banks home a 3 late in the game to take a lead. Such luck...such crap.

zoltan said...

But it's good for my bracket if Nova exit early.

Shlara said...

I'm celebrating national corn dog day while watching games. Drowning my sorrows for the nova loss in tater tots

TJ said...

Did someone say corn dogs?

Shlara said...

Corn dogs and PBR
good times

Mark said...

PBR's on the menu for me too. Store down the street from me sells 4 packs of PBR tall boys for $2.19.

Jerry said...

Gotta love St. Mary's. Teams like that make the tournament a lot more interesting. Even though it cause minor damage for my brackets, it was good to see them advance over a generic Villanova.

Mark said...

I agree. They're a Cinderella that has the tools to go deeper in March. Teams like that make the upsets even better.

Shlara said...

Why aren't we getting the ODU game in DC???

Jerry said...

I'm no expert on either team, but it seemed that it was one of those games that wasn't really an upset. St. Mary's is probably the better team than Villanova right now.

Mark said...

Again, I agree. Nova was way too guard dependent offensively and it really showed during the meat of their Big East schedule. St. Mary's is one of those rare mid-major teams that has legitimate inside-outside balance. Not an upset at all. Lesser athletes, sure, but not an inferior team.

TJ said...

Can we get a Live LaceDarius Look-in please?

Mark said...

In case you didn't know, Live LaceDarius is TJ's MC name.

Jerry said...

Guys, we've been doing it wrong the whole time. We need to start having men's nights at Applebee's.

Mark said...

When it comes to tournament names that are fun to say, Farokmanesh is this year's Mendez-Valdez...

Mark said...

Jerry -- you have men's nights?

Mark said...

FAROKMANESH!

TJ said...

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves!

TJ said...

Egleseder should be a huge favorite of Marls.

zoltan said...

"Guys, we've been doing it wrong the whole time."

How have you been doing it with guys?

TJ said...

So, at what point does Kansas realize they're in serious trouble?

TJ said...

They heard me.

rob said...

have we heard a 'spurtability' comment about kansas from the announcers yet?

Mark said...

Kansas is better without Aldrich in the lineup against UNI. They move more freely and the floor's more open (thus taking advatage of their off the dribble ability and athleticism) when the Morris twins are in together.

Shlara said...

This N Iowa game is FUN!

rob said...

koch! balls!

Marls said...

I have reached the "I'm rooting for the underdog even though it fucks my bracket" stage.

TJ said...

Ali!!!!

Shlara said...

wow

rob said...

ali baba and the enormous huevos

rob said...

that. was. awesome.

Shlara said...

poor sportsmanship by the Jayhawks

Mark said...

We're approaching "Greatest Tournament Ever" territory here folks.

So. Fucking. Awesome.

Mark said...

Oh yeah...FAROKMANESH!!!!

TJ said...

So the best team in the Big 12 is actually Baylor?

zoltan said...

This may sound stupid, but it's always a relief when my bracket gets destroyed and I can just enjoy watching basketball. I guess this is why I don't think gambling is fun?

Whitney said...

I agree, and I am a crap gambler as well. I play poker every month and relish my (usually early) exit from the tense, quiet hold 'em tournament tables so I can go play idiotic games and get housed at the Losers' Table.

Marls said...

Just looking through today's slate of games. On paper, this looks like it could be another fantastac day of hoops. As a gambling man, the only game where I could not be talked into talking the lower seen on the money line is the mizzou game.

Now that I have said that, I suggest that you bet heavy on the higher seeds since my destroyed bracket speaks to my prognotication abilities.

rob said...

i wonder what tony kornheiser would say about all the leg hannah storm is showing on 'the sports reporters' this morning.

TJ said...

The Farokh, the Farokh, the Farokh is on fire

We don't need no brackets let the motherfuckers burn

zoltan said...

Mike Tomlin didn't provide a ringing endorsement for Big Ben's innocence.

"My concerns are many," Tomlin said, "but I think at this time it's kind of appropriate to watch these things and let these things run their course. I think it would be inappropriate for me to have strong feelings one way or another with the investigation being ongoing and so forth. Like everyone else, you watch these things unfold."

TJ said...

Translation: I might ned to find a new QB because Rapeliesberger won't stop putting his dick in coeds.

zoltan said...

Don't forget to add "without their permission."

TJ said...

Nice "Rick the Ruler" reference by Gus Johnson.

Marls said...

The soundboard is great but having Gus Johnson call day to day life would be fantastic. How much do you think Gus makes? How much do you think it would coat to get him to do play by play of a weekly softball game?

TJ said...

Rick the Fouler.

Cuse is gonna fucking lose this game.

Mark said...

Nice call, Teej.

I like Andy Rautins' game a lot so I don't mean this to come off as an insult...but, if he played for Duke he would be universally loathed.

rob said...

new post up for your commenting fun. airport guestie.

TJ said...

I am quite obviously an uber prognosticator.
