One Shining Open Thread

A Ghooghle search for 'one shining peep' returns pages and pages of open-toed stiletto-heeled shoes. There's a weird sorta fetish thing happening there, and I don't want to know much more than that.

So instead of our first option, we give you this, a reasonably accurate representation of what will happen this evening when two groups of young men enter into mortal (ish) combat for our entertainment.

Mark - I have forwarded you the email re Masters pool. We are eager for your pending participation.

Danimal said...

UMMM. YES. I AM. DOES MY FATHER HAVE YOUR LOGIN INFORMATION?

well that went right over my head now didn't it? a little groggy this morning. my easter sunday ended with a last-minute, impromptu, get your drunk on. very disappointed with how the week is starting. bad decision making.

Danimal said...

Anyone watch this weekend's SNL with Michael Keaton? I thought it was above average. Have always dug that guy. The last skits of the show are usually pretty weak - I thought this weekend was an exception to that rule. This tickled me.

There's a photo of me & big Gheorghe and the Easter Bunny from the White House Easter Egg Roll in the mid-90s. Can't seem to find it...would be perfect filler for today

Danimal said...

the skit I sent contains a peep btw.

Danimal said...

a word to the wise - if printing out the pool picks, select "Page 1" otherwise you'll have a 49 pieces of paper jamming that shit up

rob said...

find it, shlara!

zman said...

The diateejus experience sounds like fun. At Easter dinner my mother said "diabeetus" without any irony. Apparently that's how she pronounces it.

Dave said...

i have already engaged in snowboarding, snow-shoeing, snow sledding, snow football, and snow beer drinking today. i am not going to make it through this game.

TR said...

With a 5 AM wake up, I'll be good for the first half. When I was a kid who wasn't allowed to stay up late, I fantasized about being an adult and being able to stay up until midnight. That ship gas sailed.

zman said...

TR's ship is quite gassy.

Shlara said...

Is there anyone pulling for Duke besides the Poole who actually went to school there?

Clarence said...

No

rob said...

this is very fun

zman said...

Coach K doesn't age. It's creepy.

Clarence said...

Good thing we have this open thread.

Mark said...

I think I ate some bad tzatziki sauce because my stomach is a little off and I have the chills. Other than that I'm thoroughly enjoying this game.

zman said...

When are they going to run out of Plumlees?

zman said...

If you like tziziki sauce and you find yourself on Park Ave and 50th you have to hit Uncle Gussie's gyro truck. It's a religious experience.

Clarence said...

Don't like this Duke dork who looks like boy band material.

Feels like home.

Clarence said...

So easy to hate Duke. Smarm, Cameron, flops, and bullshit calls. Love it.

rob said...

tyus jones and grayson allen. jesus.

Shlara said...

Caroline Woz trying to rattle Rory on the eve of the Masters by showing up at the game tonight with JJ Watt

zman said...

Winslow touched it. Why is this so hard?

rob said...

welp

zman said...

Or not. Why bother?

Clarence said...

You cannot make up the officiating gap.

zman said...

Gawd.

zman said...

Wisconsin knows there are only two halves, right?

rob said...

and...fuck

zman said...

Sad badger teletubby will be a meme in 20 minutes.

Clarence said...

Duke is the France of college basketball.

zman said...

W&M is the Lilliput then.

Clarence said...

As stepbro Ian noted, the Patriots and Duke take the first two major trophies of '15? Good news for Yankees fans.

Mark said...

Tyus Jones was unreal down the stretch. He's been clutch all year. This was obviously on a whole different level.

Grayson Allen carried Duke for a five minute second half stretch.

Kaminsky seemed oddly hesitant to pull from three all night.

That was fun.

rob said...

i grudgingly agree with mark. i hated the outcome, but that was a fun watch.

rob said...

grayson allen's gonna haunt us for the next three years, isn't he?

Mark said...

He's certainly on track to be the next widely hated Duke player.

Danimal said...

Had duke beating Wi in the final and lost my bracket by a point, for the who gives a big whoop file.
