So I’m sure I’m going to say this 100 more times this summer, but let this be the first, when the Red Sox have the night off or they’re on the west coast, TV really sucks!
Thank God for the Kansas vs. Memphis game on Monday night or I would have probably played 72 holes of Tiger Woods ’07 and my wife would probably not be too happy with me.
After some real shitty NCAA Championships the past few years with Florida blowing out UCLA and Ohio State. I was actually excited watching the game.
Memphis missed 3 HUGE free throws with time expiring allowing Kansas to force OT on a clutch 3 pointer. I mean Memphis was up nine, 9 with 2 minutes left in the game. Talk about a choke job. Kansas proved right there that they were the hungrier team.
Then the OT started and Kansas basically said “Fuck You” to Memphis and the entire country that said they wouldn’t win. They scored six straight to open the OT, embarrassed Memphis on the boards and tasted sweet victory.
I was really pulling for Memphis, I even wrote in yesterday’s column that they’re the team I wanted to win. Didn’t happen.
So congrats to Kansas and congrats to Paul Pierce. He had a daughter over the weekend and his alma mater wins the National Championship. Oh yeah, and your NBA team didn’t have yourself, Allen or Garnett and took care of business Saturday clinching the #1 seed in the East and the best turnaround in NBA history.
So here’s my Yahoo! bracket. I beat Big Jeff 123-81. None of you other folks signed up. It was a free league. Jeez.
