Hey Guess What?

Posted in football, NCAA, random, sports, videos on August 28, 2008 by pgleason85

Do you know what today is?

I’ll give you a minute to think about it.  Have an answer yet?  Good.  Well if you guessed that today was the START OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON you’d be fucking right.  Oh my god, finally, there will be football on TV.  I can waste an ENTIRE day hungover on the couch and not have to find some terrible movie on HBO to watch, I can just watch football all day.  Its great.

While I’m more of an NFL fan, I will concede that college fanbases are much more rabid than any pro-football fanbase can aspire to.  I don’t really have any alegiance to any real college team.  I grew up in Jersey, so I can jump on the Rutgers bandwagon relatively guilt free.  I was born in Oklahoma, so ditto to that bandwagon as well (but to two people from jersey, so its a bit more of a stretch).

I assume that Ohio State will run the table in the Big Ten, only to get spanked by whichever SEC team decides to run the gauntlet this year.  The Buckeyes are rapidly becoming the earl 90’s Buffalo Bills of college football, now all they need is a Scott Norwood moment and they’re set.

Last season I bet every week on college football, but I don’t think I have the funds to afford it this year, which is a bummer.  I was even for most of the year, but wound up short 50 after the bowl season.  If, by some miracle, i wind up with betting money you know i’ll keep you posted on how i do. (because i know how much you care)

We can only hope that this year brings a gem like the Michigan/ Appalachian State game last year.  Or at the very least something like this:

One Shining Moment

Posted in march madness, NCAA, sports, videos on April 8, 2008 by pgleason85

Well that was a fun game last night. I actually had Memphis winning on my facebook bracket, but even with Kansas pulling it out (in incredible fashion) I still wound up winning that bracket group.  This is big for me, because I have never come in first with my brackets, or fantasy, or really anything like this before, so I’m in quite the good mood about it.  I still can not believe Mario Chalmers three to send it to OT went in.  That was an INCREDIBLE shot.  All in all this was a damn fine tournament, but rather than talk more about it I’ll just leave you with “One Shining Moment,” which according to wikipedia, was the last song Luther Vandross ever recorded. . .

Man, that is so damn cheesy.  Still, you gotta love it tho.  It always perfectly sums up the tournament.  Especially one that was as good as this years (even with all the chalk).

Well, I guess its time to put away the march madness tag for a while.

Despite the fact that the pinball machine was not lord of the rings, but in fact was the twilight zone, I had a fairly great time at this place last night. I’ll get around to posting a full rundown for those of you who couldn’t make it. Good times were had by all, and i even saw two girls make out! WOOOO…COLLLEEE…erm…whatever. Happy Birthday’s to all parties who it applies to. (psst: the b-day girls were the one’s who made out).

In bracket related news, West Virginia might have saved me.
