Sounds good. Who was that guy played for Them about ten years ago? Long nose good shooter. Then I think he went to Boston or something

First round of games being done, I just took my first look at my NCAA bracket pool.

I'm tied with one other guy for 1st.

:dunno:

I had a couple teams who got upset that I had going a couple more rounds - so those are automatic losses in the next round - but that is probably true for everyone.

Only 7 or 8 people in the country thought Duke would go real deep so all 7 or 8 of them survived a big scare today.

Congrats to all those wizards.

I'm noticing there's a sudden influx of female announcers(?) at the desk between periods in nhl. Feels a little meh to me. Have em do play by play if they any good. That's the only skill position.
Wonder how long before they replace James Brown or one of the other six(?) useless idiots for nfl pregame with some random chic that played high school football. :dunno:

. . . aaaaaand I'm not in 1st no more. Not even on the first page.

"Fell off the face of the earth" I believe is the expression for it.

I hear that Las Vegas sports books, at peak times such as the opening weekend of March Madness, charge $300 to get into the sportsbooks.

Obviously all the books are working together because if one of them didn't do it, that's where everyone would go. But no, apparently they all do it in concert. I guess it's some kind of legal collusion.

And while I can sit here and say how idiotic it is that anyone would pay that, they are all jammed to standing room only at those times.

Not that I needed another reason to never go to Las Vegas, but there it is.

Never heard of this. Seems very unusual to me. I've never saw anybody charged anything to enter a book anywhere in Vegas

I mean there are watching parties that may cost a few dollars. :dunno:maybe some extra deluxe ones that can possibly bring that, but I've been around during March Madness and the Super Bowl and they are never ridiculously busy throughout the whole town.

But wait -- who is that over Judge's right shoulder? Ready to turn Lindor's dinger into a souvenir if Judge couldn't make the play? Why yes, that is Zack Hample, Major League ballhawk extraordinaire


Isn't that the toolbox that that other toolbox was hanging off his nutz?
I think I spotted Hample on mlb.com the video of Harper's solo shot. Guys a pro.

In the last couple years, I have become a big Brooks Koepka fan. The guy is fucking rock who apparently doesn't know what pressure is.

Just doesn't believe in it from what I've seen. Doesn't believe in pressure.

So his start at the Masters is good news.
