First, some quick housekeeping. Friday is the deadline for Sparky's Match Game contest, scroll down to see the pictures. $10 is nothing to sneeze at.
Also, be forewarned, March Madness seems to do some strange things to people.
So its one of those bonus lists. Anthony of My Sick Mind posted his and now I am posting mine. We have a gentlemans wager, though I dont think we ever decided exactly what we are wagering on. Plus, this is a Public Service Announcement for all of you who are going to fill in brackets today without a clue as to what you are doing. Of course, you need to decide whether you should follow me or do the exact opposite.
1.UNC Tar Heels-East number one seed. Beware the masked man.
2.Texas Longhorns-East number four seed. Durant pulls a Carmelo Anthony, even though Rick Barnes is a horrible coach.
3.Washington State Cougars-East seed #3. Weird style of play and alot of seniors. Plus, Wazzu is a neat name
4.Georgetown Hoyas-East Seed #2. A Ewing and a Thompson cause havoc in the Tournament again.
5.Ohio State Buckeyes-South Seed #1. Celtics and Sixers get a preview of the number one pick, Greg Oden.
6.Tennessee Volunteers-South Seed #5. I love the press, and how many coaches would paint themselves orange?
7.Texas A&M Aggies-South Seed #3. Learn the name Acie Law IV, your gonna hear alot of it.
8.Memphis Tigers-South Seed #2. They get less respect then Rodney Dangerfield.
9.Florida Gators-Midwest Seed #1. The most unlikeable team in the tournament, I will be rooting against them, but they are that good.
10.Old Dominion Monarchs-Midwest seed #12. This years George Mason.
11.Oregon Ducks-Midwest Seed #3. The Ducks can shoot and have one of the best backcourts, even though the school wanted to fire there coach.
12.Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets-Midwest Seed #10. A pick because I hate the way both Wisconsin and UNLV play.
13.Kansas Jayhawks-West Seed #1. A very experienced team, a bit erratic, but too many good guys that can play together.
14.Virginia Tech Hokies-West Seed #5 Im Hokie crazy.
15.Pittsburgh Panthers-West Seed #3. A stifling defense, even if they cant score, themselves. (well im sure they "score" off the basketball courts)
16.UCLA Bruins-West Seed #2. Finalists last year and most of the team is back.
Okay, My final Four Picks?
Florida, Georgetown, Texas A & M and UCLA. Champs? Texas A&M. I believe in Acie Law!
Sorry for all the Sports stuff.
