3Bids4CAA: A @batogato Production

Our diminutive leader likes to talk about how we are the internet's fourth largest provider of CAA hoops-related content (or something to that effect). That may or may not be true, but one thing i do know: this little slice of blog heaven can be credited with the first known sighting of the rare "3 Bids for CAA" notion...

http://gheorghe77.blogspot.com/2007/03/march-sadness.html

In looking at that post, I realize it has my name attached, but I'm thinking I wasn't actually able to craft a post with that many words/thoughts. So we are given all credit to our lift-wearing friend rob. Kudos sir, because that March 4, 2007 post has now led to the movement that is the twitter hashtag #3Bids4CAA

Live it, learn it, love it.

Here's what you need to know (because I'm kinda in a hurry) - George Mason, very good (20-6, 11-4; RPI: 29, SOS: 61*). Old Dominion, very good (21-5, 13-2; RPI: 23, SOS: 72*). BUT, we need these very good teams to lose the CAA conference tournament. That is the only way I see #3Bids4CAA of having even half a chance. So, Charles jenkins, that means you taking Hofstra on your back (think Randolph Childress). Denzel, wake up man, we might need you to carrry JMU to the tourney title. Or random dudes at VCU I forget at the moment, who are probably the best bet statistically to pull this off anyway (and I hope they're winning their Bracket Buster game as I type this).

On that note, this weekend, let's first of all hope basically every single CAA team wins...and then we'll get back to you early next week with our Steve Buscemi-esque hate list for non-CAA at-larges clogging up the scene (hey, Boston College and Clemson, I'm looky at your sloppy asses).


*I used @aglock Bubble Watch of 2/14...sorry for the laziness.

Shlara said...

Is anyone else watching the Biebs in this celeb all star game? I had NO IDEA he had skills.

I'm starting not to hate him as much...

rob said...

choky rodriguez

rob said...

it's not #3biebs4caa, shlara

rob said...

choky says, 'eat it, rob'

Shlara said...

CWebb sounds like he's on speed tonight. Which is surprising because back in the day he was a fan of papal elections...

T.J. said...

Nice use Shlara

rob said...

indeed - that's impressive. you sure you weren't in tr's gtb sitcom?

Danimal said...

zman said...

Please ignore any emails you receive involving me and something called Shoppybags.com. I didn't send them to you.

rob said...

virginia tech losing to uva. #3bids4caa!

Shlara said...

It makes me feel old that RIck Fox is the Lakers "old guy" in the Shooting Stars competition.

And twitter is reporting that Big Gheorghe is in LA

rob said...

gheorghe owns tinseltown - you've seen 'my giant', right?

rob said...

any deecee gheorghers want to go to tomorrow's american/holy cross game? i'm taking my little one.

Shlara said...

Jesus Shuttlesworth!
I love Ray Allen...

Shlara said...

Um, what is Dawkins wearing???

TR said...

I hate the multiple tries during the dunk contest.

That said, I am loving Air Congo right now.

Shlara said...

I've always liked McGee...

rob said...

rob said...

our gaels are struggaling

T.J. said...

Suck it Blake.

TR said...

Is that Jerome Williams dressed like Erkel?

TR said...

Not sure if I love or hate the WWE-like theatrics of this contest, but it's holding my attention.

rob said...

love is the correct answer, tr

Shlara said...

This weekend is the highlight of the Wizards season--JWall in the rookie game last night and McGee's performance tonight....sigh.

Shlara said...

The TNT commentary is good tonight too.

rob said...

maybe javale gets confidence from this and owns the second half of the season.

almost got through that with a straight face.

Shlara said...

Kenny is a good hype man.
and that was pretty cool by Blake

rob said...

just the hood - color me unimpressed

TR said...

They need to retire the contest after this year. Oh my Lord.

Shlara said...

I love Charles Barkley

TR said...

Biggest dunk contest robbery ever was Nique in Chicago against MJ.

rob said...

they got to javale

TR said...

T-Mobile chick makes me think dirty thoughts.

rob said...

also, what moron picked st mary's as our team?

TR said...

Over/under on Michael McGlone's paychecks from Geico: $150K. What's your bet?

rob said...

over

TR said...

Where's Taylor Griffin right now? Is he waxing Blake's Bentley in the lot?

rob said...

not kidding - total conspiracy theory fodder at the end of the dunk contest. mcgee is the most creative dunker all night and he ends with that? fix.

Shlara said...

totally agree with you Rob. Stern wanted Blake to win. He's a powerful dunker but hardly any creativity. That Kia is a total product placement from the League

TR said...

Is Brady Morningstar related to Daryl?

Mark said...

Favorite Kansas name, I can't decide. Is it Brady "child of hippies" Morningstar or Tyrell "really? I'm not black" Reed? Tough one.

Missed the entire dunk contest eating and drinking and being merry and shit with future wife and my folks. though between G:TB and Twitter I'm quite interested to see what went down. Sounds like the Angel of Stern intervened. If he did, he did it for the good of all of us.

You have the GMU and ODU info switched.
