Indulge yourself in criticising the unoriginality and homerism of my picks.

  1. Pete Hunt says:

    Speaking of womens’ basketball, I just saw Jody Runge at the Goose Hollow. She’s still sporting the same hair…

    You can force colleges to have teams, but you can’t force people to watch or care.

  3. WWB says:

    Call me a sexist jerk if you must (and I’m sure somebody will even if I add this note), but I didn’t think once about the womens’ tourney when filling out my brackets for the office pool (I’ve got Arizona going to the Final Four — there’s a bit of homerism for you). In fact, none of my female co-workers even so much as mentioned the Womens’ NCAA tournament. I only know the UConn women won last year because both UConn teams won.

    For what it’s worth, I have UNC winning it all.

    Clint: Google it.

  5. Danimal says:


    I’m “nutz”? Maybe so, but it’s not for supporting UAB, which I don’t think I’ve ever done. I was referring to the Portland Trail BLAZERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, for Chrissake. For this, of course I am “nutz.”

    GO BLAZERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Clint T. says:

    Leave it to a woman to change the topic of a March Madness message to Panties and Shoes. WTF is Pearatin anyway.. is that a new type of barbiturate I’m unaware of? I could understand if it was grouped with the panties, I mean that makes sense.. but I don’t understand it with the shoes.

  7. andrew says:

    Sports are a welcome reprieve from the usual realm of politics covered on my blog (except today, where Congress is attempting to compete with the NCAAs by holding its ludicrous steroid hearing).

    Blazer-South fan, you’re nutz! I like UAB in the first rd. but they won’t get past Arizona. My final four:
    [NC}-Mich. St.
    [Illini as national champs]

    Women’s I don’t pretent to folo but go DUCKS!

  8. Melissa says:

    Basketball, Schmasketball. My picks:

    wine vs. [beer]
    [vodka] vs. rum

    beer vs. [vodka]

    Clinique vs. [new shoes and Pearatin]
    [panties] vs. lipstick
    [new shoes and Pearatin] vs. [new Bumble and Bumble product]…I still can’t decide. Better to call it a tie and get both.

  9. emily says:

    I dreamt about your damned brackets last night.
    An Arab man dressed in plaid issued a fatwa against me because he didn’t believe that Fairleigh Dickinson was a real team.

    I hope you’re happy.

  10. Danimal says:

    GO BLAZERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Big M says:

    Wake Forest vs. [UCONN]

    LSU vs. [Minnesota]
    [Tennessee] vs. Stanford

  12. Casey says:

    I only watch sports that involve players that steal gay sheep. “Fa” with your basketball.

  13. Timothy says:

    What is this “basketball” of which you speak?
