And who wins and loses our bet with the KissingSuzyKolber Mafia comes down to these last three games. Sixty-three. Now three. Why even have the other sixty?

See that? The Ladies are forced into cheering for the one team that across the board all of us dislike, Ohio State. Greg Oden? Really? We have to root for the one team that we didn’t pick ONE SINGLE HOTTIE from in any preview? Well, that’s just karma kicking us in the ass now, isn’t it.
Dammit Andie, I thought it was a hilarious idea when you suggested the bet, but now I am scared! What if they traumatize SA? I couldn’t live with myself if she gets hurt!
How does it happen that a Tennessee fan picks Florida?
I think that you’re dead to Knoxville, now.
Now that I’ve thought about this, since UNC is out of it, everything is all gravy. Especially if Florida doesn’t repeat and Duke can still maintain the “last back-to-back national champions” title. As a Michigan (football) fan this is gonna be hard, but not impossible.
How about instead of thinking of it as cheering FOR tOSU, we think about like we’re cheering AGAINST Georgetown? Does that help at all?
Please don’t make us wear Buckstaches!
I would like to apologize for trying to take an upset pick all the way to the Finals. I was gambling, (and lost), with the idea that no one else would take Oregon and if they off-chance they won, we’d be riding pretty.
Also, I meant to congradulate Flubby for his sudden rise in the rankings. Hard to crawl out of the basement like that.
Stu, despite my UT education, I know what “pragmatist” means.
A quick toast to UM–here’s to your perfect Final Four bracket, and to mine, and may the prettiest pony win.
And if y’all think I haven’t taped this bracket to my mirror and shadow-boxed in its general direction while blasting “Final Countdown”, you are dearly mistaken.
“Final Countdown” is perhaps the most misread song, ever.
& I’d be joining you in doing Indonesian shadow puppetry to Final Countdown, if I wouldn’t have picked UNLV over Florida. Got-damn Rapin’ Rebels… I thought they had it in them, to be this year’s “sort of George Mason”. (Mountain West is great. I love BYU (coeds, anyway) & Air Force.)
This actually doesn’t come down to 3 games. It comes down to 1. If Georgetown wins, KSK wins. If OSU wins, we win. ONE GAME to DECIDE IT ALL! SCARY.
As an Ohio State alum, I find myself in quite a quandry…
“It is an ancient tongue. A form of OHIO-ISH I dare not speak here. But it reads: One Game to Rule Them All. One Game to Find Them. One Game to Bring Them All and In The Blogverse Bind Them.”
Hey. I tried.
Andrea… SHHHHHHHHHHHHH. We’re trying to stretch out the drama here. (And I was hoping KSK guys wouldn’t notice.)
Yeah, but + two more games to decide who’s in the final = 3.
Thanks for doing the math so I don’t have to. Go Hoyas!!!
2 more games to decide who wins the actual basketball championship? Yes, I realize that would make 3 but I thought we were only talking about the bet. Plus, I think it’s more fun if KSK is aware of it too because then we can all sweat the Gtown/OSU game together. We should liveblog it.
I haven’t felt this confused since I was a 7-year-old boy in the back of the station wagon as mommy and daddy talked about getting a divorce. I can’t pick a side. I’m so confused.
Let me help you: pick tOSU. Or, rather, pick against Hoyas.
Jebus – don’t worry, you don’t need to pick a side. Just understand that no matter what happens, it was all your fault.
That’s what my daddy told me.
(He was a horrible father)
Jebus – Mommy promises to increase your allowance, buy you an extra video game a month, and will not throw away your “special” magazines you keep under your bed.
Daddy will just tell you how your swing sucks, that he cannot see you this weekend because he’s seeing his new “friend”, and that only babies read comic books.
Are you telling me jebus christ can’t hit a curveball?
He’s a pretty solid third baseman. HEY-O!!
“Are you telling me jebus christ canâ€™t hit a curveball?”
He would always reach base with 2 outs, then get hung out to dry.
And in the day that bells rang on
The men still fight and sing their song
And if you find them laying by
The road which wrangles mighty high
Ask not the common way to go
But give up all by hell below
I gotta go with my heart and the ladies…
That’s not your heart talking, Jeebs…
