Holly and TheStarterWife need to set the record straight!
Stupid, stupid, stupid fucking Yahoo.Â We’ve heard hereÂ at Ladies HQ that many pools have been ruined by improperly saved bracket picks, and it looks like we fared no better.Â
Holly would have been perfect for the day on Friday if her pick of Kentucky would have gone through instead of it being a ‘no pick’.Â (Which means she would have had one more point, and would have be the sole #1 in the pool.)Â Since it is the first round and it was only one point, well, that is just the way the cookie crumbles.Â
I, on the other hand, made a colossal mistake. Â How it did not save after I entered my tie-breaking score with my final pick, I do not know, but I fucked up.Â In the long-run, I do not think it will matter because my very risky pick of Oregon winning it all looks ludicrous after the way they played against Miami of Ohio.Â
IfÂ OregonÂ does win, and I need to back up this pick, I offer two things: 1) I have previouslyÂ posted all over Deadspin what my FF picks were and who I selected as the champion 2)Â MyÂ picks in my office poolÂ are exactly the same as these, and have Oregon saved as the winner.Â It also has my real name and my company’s name ON THE PAGE.Â Â If it comes down to it, I will select one Lady and one KSK gentleman I trust with this information andÂ will submit toÂ them my office bracket for verification.
Ladies, again, I apologize to you for this error.Â (And for picking Oregon to begin with. I was blinded by Bryce Taylor’s smile!!!)
I have Oregon winning in my ESPN bracket.
Holly – why didn’t you name your bracket after the Bond girl with your first name? Holly Goodhead?
Because Vesper Lynd is teh hottness, and I get enough propositioning from the boys in the threads as it is.
Also, for the record, should it come down to one point saving us from invasion–my D—spin Pants Party bracket (The WolfBearClownSharks, if you care to search) is identical to this one in every way, except for the part where ALL THE GAMES WERE CORRECTLY SAVED. It clearly shows my selection of Kentucky over ‘Nova. What really, really riles me about this is that I agonized over picking that particular game and ended up choosing correctly, only to receive no points for it.
Fuckin Yahoo. I seem to have less points as well. What, it’s because I know very little about NCAA basketball? Aw, dammit.
Still lovin the MS Paint jobs, TSW.
Also, “Octopussybasket” is inspired. +1 flubby.
“Still lovin the MS Paint jobs, TSW.”
I will henceforth call it the Ladies…strator
The funny thing is that other than the Big Sky one, which was done all in MS Paint, I’ve done them all in Photoshop. Talk about wasted resourses. 289, Suss–, and J-Money – don’t read this next part.
(Sometimes I even remember to make layers in Photoshop. But most of the time I am doing it on the background.)
That last part makes no sense to me. I tried using Photoshop once, and was scared away by all the features. I just use Corel Paint Pro. (I think that’s what it’s called.)
The Ladies…trator? Isn’t that copyrighted to Hitachi, already?
+1 to H for the Vesper Lynd. I
Casino Royale Kicks so much ass.
honey, i’m sorry it didn’t work out for you and your hens, but rule number one of any gambling enterprise is to make sure your bets are right with the house… and then you check again… and again, just to be sure.
Wow, thanks for the gambling lesson. I’ll certainly keep those principles in mind.
It’s also good form to make sure you don’t have any truly retarded picks when you get freaking lucky and pick 38 of 38 in one of your brackets. No, wait, that was me. Don’t worry.
I doubled checked, common sense.
