Pick Me The Winner

Like every sports nut, I do up my brackets every March for March Madness. And just like most sports nuts, every year my picks suck swamp water. This year, Phat's invited me to join his bracket contest. This time around something miraculous happened. No I sucked just as bad as most years, but luckily I sucked the least in the West bracket. So far I have only correctly picked 5 out of 8 but so far UCLA is still in it to win it.

So thanks Phat's for letting me play. In case anyone wants to know. My picks for the final four are still in it to win it. So I will predict out the final four. In the East, I don't see anyone knocking off North Carolina. In the Midwest, it's a toss up between Kansas and Georgetown. They both look damned good but I have to give Georgetown the edge. In the South, I have to go with Stanford although I will be rooting for Texas. In the West, UCLA just keeps on finding ways to win.

In the final four, I think North Carolina and UCLA will come out on top. And in a barn burner, UCLA will find a way to come out with a way to win the big dance.

For those not interested in basketball brackets I have stolen and listed a few reasons why basketball is possibly better than sex.

  1. There is always a coach that can tell you the best time to take it to the hole.
  2. You know you are done when the horn sounds
  3. Being double teamed is common.
  4. You always try to score in 24 seconds.
  5. There's always someone with a towel to come up and wipe up the wet spots.

Jokes stolen here.

Unfortunately, five fouls and you're out of there.

Dude, I was with you on the G-town and Stanford... BOTH GONE. NC is gonna take it all. I thought it was UCLA's year also, but if there is one thing I have learned its that since they went to a field of 64 (65 with play-in) there has been only ONE consistancy amongst all national champs. They litteraly blew away their first two opponents in the opening weekend. That is the only common denominator that has held up. The only school that has securly blown out its cometiion this year is North Carolina. Mark my words.

OK, my bad, Stanford is still in for another game...

Nope, sex is still better ;-)

golfwidow: That is one hell of a good point.

ozy: NC is looking good but as Horton would say, I meant what I said and I said what I meant. Although wtf got into Davidson.

lisa: My opinion zactly.

I hope UNC doesn't win it all. I need UCLA to win it all. I think lady luck is on the Bruins side with all the lucky calls they have gotten ALL year

Except in college, you have a whole 35 seconds. I guess you're losing your stamina with age, Fuzz.

Thanks for the support, Phats. If Duke is out, of course I want UNC to lose! (But I suspect they will win. Easily.)

And I'm with Lisa. I think I'm a bigger college basketball fan than ANYONE here ... but good sex is better than great basketball.

Now, sex during a Duke win--PRICELESS.
