With 16 games spread over 12 hours on 4 networks, the opening day* of the NCAA Tournament can be a lot to handle. Here's what to expect throughout the day:
Mocking the Tournament: 40+ NCAA Tournament Nicknames
It is that time of the year again, the first two days of the NCAA Tournament where they inconveniently schedule games during business hours on Thursday and Friday.
For some employees catching the games is as simple as taking a paid day off or doing what I used to do, schedule an out of town business trip to allow you to take care of some important business like watching college hoops.
For all of you who, like me, had their brackets destroyed well before the big game, I have provided a slightly different set of lyrics. Interspersed within "One Shining Moment" are the words to my song, in parentheses - "One Sh!tty Moment". Hope you enjoy.
When the University of Texas sent out a press release on Wednesday noting that Dexter Pittman** was returning to school, I first thought it was an April Fool's joke. When a player that no one expects to go pro, doesn't go pro, is it really news? Of course not. Which is why I present to you tonight's official CollegeHoops.net press release: Shawn Siegel to Return to Work Tomorrow
Everyone loves a good nickname. But real nicknames are often boring. Psycho-T? Yawn. So instead, I present to you funny/lame nicknames for 40 of the top players in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Some of these reference pop culture, politics, and sports history. For others, it helps to know a little bit about the player or the team he plays for. Others are just plain ridiculous.
After each year, I swear I'm never going to be that idiot again. The stress of running a pool is simply not worth it. But then March comes and, much like Al Pacino said, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." (Though I'm not sure if Michael Corleone would find the "stress" of running an NCAA pool "much like" the stress of running - the mafia.)
For some lucky employees, catching the games is as simple as taking a paid day off or doing what I used to do, schedule an out of town business trip to take care of some "important business" like watching college hoops.
In just days I, Dave Barend, will “fit in”. No, I haven’t read, “The Idiot’s Guide To Basic Social Skills.” Actually, it’s you who are going to change. On March 15, aka Selection Sunday, you will become crazy for college hoops. And then (brace yourselves) you will be just like me.
