Sweet Sixteen Action (No, Not The Gary Glitter Kind)

OK folks, looks like we need some filler today, so pasted below is the game action for tonight's Sweet Sixteen match-ups...with a special peeps photo as well.

Wisconsin (4) vs. Syracuse (1), 7:15 p.m. ET, CBS
Many people expected Cuse to lose before the Round of 16, and they almost did become the first #1 seed to fall to a #16 seed. Alas, they survived UNC-Asheville and beat down Kansas State in the second half to advance and face the Badgers. Is this the game Fab Melo's absence kills them? Will Rakeem Festivus step up in Melo's absence? Will Jim Boeheim continue to be a curmudgeonly asshole? (wait, we know the answer to that one already) On another note, I think Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor has been enrolled since 1997.

Louisville (4) vs. Michigan State (1), 7:47 p.m. ET, TBS 
rob's boy Draymond Green is having a special tournament already, and you have to like Tom Izzo's club in this matchup, mainly because it's fun to root against Rick Pitino and those Colonel Sander's suits of his. Lousiville center Gorgui Dieng has a great name, even if his game doesn't always match up to the name.

Cincinnati (6) vs. Ohio State (2), 9:45 p.m. ET, CBS
Yancy Gates will punch you in the face. Hell, this whole Bearcats team has no problem throwing haymakers for Lollipop Guild member Mick Cronin. This Ohio State team is not nearly as good as last year's squad, but as long as Sullinger gets some offensive help from William Buford (another Jess Settles Team member) and Aaron Craft the Buckeyes should win.

Florida (7) vs. Marquette (3), 10:17 p.m. ET, TBS 
Mark's team has had a cakewalk to the Sweet Sixteen, pummeling those uptight UVA douchebags and then throttling one-hit-wonder Norfolk State. Bradley Beal has averaged 14 points and 10 boards in the two games, which has to be bittersweet for Mark since his strong performance means he'll be headed to the NBA next season. Marquette's Jae Crowder, the Big East Player of the Year, looks like a girl. Their other star, Darius Johnson-Odom, has a porn star's name.

Oh yeah, here's that peeps photo I promised:

Cincy-Xavier in the finals would be extremely amusing.

I may have posted these before, but they're funny enough to warrant a second viewing. SFW.

i am thinking of reproducing that peeps photo, but with myself as the subject. but perhaps i will eat a fatcat instead of licking an ice cream cone.

T.J. said...

Thank god I had already eaten lunch.

rob said...

what a waste of perfectly good peeps

Danimal said...

not really.

T.J. said...

rob, you're an idiot.

rob said...

well, yeah.

Igor said...

She could put each of those peeps on eBay.

It's been a good week for horny Gheorghe readers.

Igor said...

Say, is her ankle chained to the faucet? That's disturbing.

Dave said...

a team of horny peeps chained her ankle to the faucet! and then fed her ice cream to distract her.

i'll bet there's a few wedged in some delightful crevices . . .

rob said...

"it's been a good week for horny gheorghe readers"

I hope he's not a method actor, because he'll die before the film is done.

(no Method Man pun intended)

T.J. said...

Igor, it's a peeps chain, so she can gnaw her way out if necessary...

Igor said...

Rob, if all the FOGTB girls' crochet vagina finger banging talk didn't give you a semi, you weren't paying attention. And the link to the site where you can learn how to make a "snatchel," or a knitted vulva, well that made it funny as well as titillating. Here's to more of that and less crap like esoteric music snobbery by people like me.

Today, on the record, I couldn't help myself from saying "Nice!" when opposing counsel marked exhibit number 69.

Igor said...

So ODU senior basketball standout got a DUI last summer. He failed to complete his sentence's required obligations in the allotted amount of time. The Virginia Beach police, notorious in this area for their absolute fucking douchebaggery, chose to arrest Bazemore in the ODU locker room right before tip-off of what would have been his last game for the Monarchs.

When the VB fraternal order of police call for donations this year, they'll likely get a hearty round of "go fuck yourself, copper."

Igor said...

I'm drinking. Left out the player's name. Kent Bazemore, one of their best players.

Shlara said...

1. this photo is gross

2. I will be at that Michigan State-Marquette game on Saturday in PHX. Or Louisville-Florida, or a combination in between. GO SPARTY!!

zman said...

1. Gross is subjective.
2. Arctic Monkeys/Black Keys tonight.

Shlara said...

Zman--saw that show a few weeks ago in DC.
Really good rock & roll show

Mark said...

You won't be watching Sparty on Saturday, Shlara. Might as well root for Florida now. Or wait, don't. Yeah. Don't root for Florida.

TR said...

Arctic Monkeys review please, Zman. But none of that stinkin' Black Keys.

zman said...

We decided to drink more instead of seeing the Arctic Monkeys. The Black Keys were very good. I thought they might disappoint live but they did not. They don't improvise much but they rearrange their songs a fair bit to keep things interesting. If Bryan Devendorf is the Muhammad Ali of drumming then Pat Carney is the Johnny Ruiz.

Igor said...

I'm seeing the same show tonight. More than a little revved.

zman said...

You should be. They re-worked Ten Cent Pistol so that it started out violent but ended tenderly. A strange arrangement as Mayer Hawthorne would say. Everlasting Light is my jam and they pulled out all the stops.

TR said...

How could you miss Arctic Monkeys!? All that $$$ for an arena show and you choose to drink in a bar near MSG?

I'm jamming you the next time I see you on a train.
