9 seed v Iowa at 5:50 Thursday.

They open as a 1pt favorite.  They live and die by the 3, and it has taken them this far.  Smothering defense and transition points will be the key to a W come Thursday.  Make it past this, we get the Houston Cougars, who are way less hot than Dallas cougars I hear.

Shot in the dark here, but if anybody knows of someone with extras, I would love to buy 2 off them.  Mini turns 21 on Sunday and wants to go, so I am looking to see if I can get us in for less than an arm AND a leg.

21?  Fuck's sake.

This is a weird bracket.  I can see this shit falling a few different ways.  My first run through has a TN/StMary's final.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

Fun fact:

Since the field expanded to 64 teams, Auburn has never lost in the first round.  10-0

Allegedly.  I read it on the internet so it must be true.

Teh Googles would be correct.  The field expanded in 1985.  Auburn has made at least the 2nd round every year they've been in it.

On the frustrating side, if you want to know why we love Lord Bruce so much, we went 15 years (2003-2018) without even making the tourney. Now, an "off" year, gets us a 9 seed.

I've noticed the lingo has changed so people can feel like they sound knowledgeable.  There are no seeds anymore.  A team is on the "1 line" now.  We're on the 9 line.

For the first time I can recall, I don't have a 12/5 upset.

SDSt/Charleston
Duke/ORU
St.Marys/VCU
Miami/Drake

I just couldn't talk myself into any of these being an upset.

He’s a terrible singer.  Maybe better at basketball.  But he looks soft.

I took two. You guess which two.

I cannot make myself pick AU over UH.
We just do not have the stamina. If it happens, I'll gladly take the loss.
But I just cannot do it.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
