Dumb3r

After watching the AFC/NFL championship game on Sunday, CBS premiered Numb3rs. And because I'm a giant nerd, I watched it. But let's be honest - throwing a TV show the revolves around "advanced" math after football might not be the best use of a prime slot. I'm probably in the minority of the football watching public that thinks "Hey, a math based ripoff of CSI with the dude from Northern Exposure?!? COUNT ME IN!"

So I sit down with my trusty dinner of nachos and cheese to watch this show with a somewhat open mind. Let me get you up to speed: it's exactly like every other show on TV, but instead of using chemistry or biology to solve a crime, they are using math. And to show that they've got a guy who's really good at math, he shows us what the odds of winning the lottery are really low. Everything is numbers!

Eventually the numb3rs guy puts together an equation that pinpoints the killer's location based on a "random" distribution of points, and all is better in the world in numbers. Next week, I think the numb3rs guy is supposed to put together an equation to find bank robbers based on a "random" distribution of points. I'm anxiously awaiting the episode were the numbers guy uses a mandelbrot set to find where hookers are going to pop up appear next or brings up Fermat's Last Theorem to show that there is no escape from the life of gang bangin'. All in all, not a bad episode. Easily holds up against any of those other Coast Guard Investigator shows that seem to be all the rage these days. But how far can they take the math angle without being overly repetitive? Might have made a good movie ("Good Will Investigators?"), but I can't imagine this show lasting more than three weeks.

All I'm really asking out of the show is one good "I'd like to calculate the area under her curves" joke.

hey look, a new post for Marc.

Marc on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 at 3:59 PM

hey philco, i couldn't find that segment from the game you wanted. was it just a guy running on the field and getting tackled. on 01/23 around 5:30pm?

Phil on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 at 5:15 PM

i'm almost certain that it happened around 5:30ish. Looking at Totalfark yesterday, someone posted a comment about it at 05:38:57. So I'd say maybe 5:36 or 5:37.

It was on Fox, not CBS too. I forget which one I told you yesterday, but I was probably mistaken.

Phil on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 at 5:40 PM

I learned a new word today: Mpemba effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_...)#Mpemba_effect)

"The Mpemba Effect" would be a cool band name.

Jay on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 at 4:26 PM

Speaking of the band, I've pretty much wasted my entire day looking up songs to play, and have come up with a decent set list. You might make fun of some of the songs I have on there
(Talk Dirty to Me, F*** her gently, etc.), but they are sure to get the party started. By the way, I called you to go running yesterday, Phil. What happened?

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 at 5:11 PM

I have updated a couple of my songs. Walk the line makes sense now, to me anyway (two jager bombs to the first person who can make sense of it *cough* shameless self promotion *cough*). Also, I added a couple of verses to Paralyze me. It's fan-tastic.

Bigworm on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 at 5:48 PM

Phil on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 at 8:47 PM

walk the line is about me cock blocking jay, and him fighting the urge to busting out a knife and cut me.

Green Baron on Thursday, January 27, 2005 at 1:13 PM

Jay, is it in relation to the Bush-hater's attempt to change your vote but instead you deny all logic and reasoning in order to convince yourself to place your vote for a liar, a war-criminal, and a ex?-coke addict (hence the double meaning to walk-the-"line")
I'll take my jagers now.....

Green Baron on Thursday, January 27, 2005 at 1:19 PM

Also, I think your song lyrics are pretty groovy actually (of course, looking at my last post probably means I am completely "misunderestimating" them), although I'd like to hear them put to music. Any chance you can upload some MP3's when you can? Otherwise, they just seem like poetic verses, and poets are gay.

If you really want to hear the music for Jay's lyrics, just play "MooseTales" and you'll get a fair feel for his style.

"In November, in response to an AP request, the military described an April 2003 incident in which a female interrogator took off her uniform top, exposed her brown T-shirt, ran her fingers through a detainee's hair and sat on his lap.

Marc on Friday, January 28, 2005 at 10:24 AM

we're having an "impromtu meeting" at my work at 3:00pm. but they posted a note about this meeting at least by 9am today. not exactly "impromtu" I don't think they know what that means. It deosn't mean a short quick meeting, also just because they gave less than a full day's notice does not make it impromtu. impromtu would be "hey we're having a meeting. when? now."

3 DAYS!!!

No one has posted for 3 DAYS!?!

Granted, it was a weekend, but usually Phil or Jay post something at 4 AM in a drunken stupor. Is this the beginning of the end?

Phil on Monday, February 14, 2005 at 4:15 PM

i actually wanted to see how long it would last until someone else posted. besides...they are watching me.

Brock on Monday, February 14, 2005 at 4:19 PM

I was actually tempted to do the same, but as usual, I couldn't keep my mouth shut (or my fingers from typing).

Phil on Monday, February 14, 2005 at 4:47 PM

although, not posting on saturday is kinda odd. I stayed up playing NBA Street until like 6am. I was kinda hyper. I even checked the website in the morning to see if I had posted.

Bigworm on Monday, February 14, 2005 at 10:09 PM

I have attempted to post 2x but got some lame error message so I said fuck it. It's not like I had anything truly worth mentioning.

Jay is in the hospital. He has pneumonia. His dad says he's doing better than he was yesterday. That's all the info I got. I wasn't around for the phone call. when I find out more i'll post it.

the grand experiment: http://www.nattysci.com/cs/

what I did was simply import the username / password setup for posting here into the system and set up a weblog.

I did this for Jay, Joanna, Bigworm, Brock and Marc. I think these people have mentioned being interested if I set this up. If anyone else wants to get set up, give me a holla.

As far as that Trot Nixon story goes, I completely agree, but I would take it a little farther. I think the whole team has changed since their great run in the late 90's. Sure they've still got the core of Jeter, Williams, and Posada, but they've lost character since O'Neil, Tino, and Petite left. Also, they had some clutch players off the bench too like Jimmy Leyritz and Shane Spencer. Which is why I am now a Reds fan. And one other thing...I want to know why Giambi is taking most of the heat for this 'roids thing. Bonds and Sosa haven't had their names smeared quite as bad. Personally, I'd like to see Giambi go off this year (off roids) especially following that tumor thing (if that's true). Sorry for the rant, but spring training is right aroiund the corner.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, February 16, 2005 at 12:50 PM

BACHELOR PARTY other ideas/dates/etc

1) Dates - I'm off 4/3-4/10 along with Bill and Scott, so if we go on a road trip I would like to start Thurs and spend 3 nights in wherever we end up - of course, we can leave early and people who work can join whenever vacation time allows

Options
1) New Orleans- Wes which hotel? How close do we want to get to Bourbon street/how much do we want to spend/do we want to go that far? Pros - within walking distance of Bourbon St everyone drinks all the time Cons- driving 700 miles to and from, walking around downtown NO really drunk

2) Go to St. Louis/Chicago for the Cards/Cubs home opening weekend, and party in either of the respective cities. This will start in Louisville Thursday night for the Bats home opener and dollar beers Pros- not as far, we know people in the cities Cons- someone might need to drive when we get there, getting tickets for the home openers -----Cinncy, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh were all out of town

3) Stay in louisville - Pros - can spend travel money on more alcohol, someone to drive us, and boobs Cons - "strip" clubs?, and running into too many people we know

Those are just my thoughts. Open to any suggestions, but if we want to do the road trip, we should decide soon.

Brock on Wednesday, February 16, 2005 at 1:14 PM

4) Amsterdam - Pros: Foreign country, women love Americans in forgien countries, the Las Vegas of Europe, new types of beer, world-renowned strippers. Cons: Close to France, Joe could use the line "remember that time in Amsterdam" and actually mean it.

Marc on Wednesday, February 16, 2005 at 3:02 PM

could go to
(5) nashville - Pro bar open late. strip clubs. possible rednecks to get into fights with. can get there on one tank of gas (but you'll need to refill after that...trust me) cons: know of no sports teams. country music sucks. and possible rednecks to get into fights with.

Phil on Wednesday, February 16, 2005 at 3:39 PM

(6) Vegas, Baby. Vegas.

(1) David Letterman clips of George W Bush and others

(2) Nine cows escape from a slaughter house but are casually roaming the streets peacefully. So the police do the only thing they see as an option ... they repeatedly shoot them at close range until they are dead. Here's the video.

(3) Two girls rang the wrong doorbell when they went to deliver some cookies as an act of kindness to an elderly person. Apparently the person got scared and suffered a panic attack and ended up suing the two girls. A local radio station is helping to pay the girls settlement fees.

(4) X-ray of hook removed from man's head. You may have seen other X-rays (nails in head, light bulb in stomach, small wine bottle in stomach, knife in head, etc) but this one is even more fucked up once you see the size of this hook.

(5) They maybe to cute for Burkett to have sex with but these penguins are definitely going at it at the zoo. Oh yeah, they're gay penguins.

(6) A truck driver for Miller Brewing Company has his photo in the local paper from when he was at a party during his time off work. He is photographed holding a Bud Light bottle. Even though from the picture and the story one cannot tell he works for Miller and he was not working at the time, he still gets fired from his job. That's bullshit.

(7) Hot 23 year-old blonde teacher has sexual affair with a 13 year-old boy. Sounds like a old story from last year, right? Wrong. This is a different girl, hottier even. Although highly-unlikely, if convicted on every count she could face 100 years in prison. [Marc's Punchline] It is only is a case like this (female teacher-young male) that it is safe to safe... "hey, the victim was asking for it."

(8) Bill Murray shanks his shot at a celebrity golf event. Then he makes a couple more funny shots. ...its a cinderella story really.

(4) A "nothing but net" hole-in-one golf shot pops out and then becomes a water hazard.

(5) A collection of clips from Jimmy Kimmel: Michael Jackson, foul-mouth Cabbage Patch Dolls, and stupid drivers.

(6) Coming to your grocery store...checking out by fingerprints. What's next a bar scan on the back of our neck like Jessica Alba in Dark Angel. Oooooooh....Jessica Alba.

(1) Warner Brothers, in their spectacular wisdom, thinks that the Looney Tunes characters that we and other generations grew up with are dated and need to become edgy and updated for the newer generation. It is a total revamp of the characters. This is bloody awful. Can't wait to see someone get fired over this idea.

(2) Hey kids want to see a video of a train running into a truck? Of course you do. A man set up multiple cameras to prove a traffic light was faulty in order to combat his traffic ticket. But he also managed to get a train colliding into a delivery truck on his cameras....from different angles. Now that's just funny.

(3) I already told you of two girls being sued for delivering cookies to someone's door because the person suffered a panic attack. Now hear the woman's rationale for suing the girls.

(4) A hugh brawl at a high school basketball game that would make the NBA proud.

(5) Need your troops and tanks in Iraq, and they absolutely have to be there by 9AM tomorrow? No problem, teleport them. Hear how the government spend money to study teleportation for military purposes.

(6) Valentine's Day would be a romantic day to take your lover in a balloon ride and propose why sailing in the air...at least until the balloon gets caught by a huge gust of wind and pulls you uncontrollably and drags you along the ground violently. Ahh, love.

(7) WAVE 3, the local NBC news affliate, made national news when a reporter was attacked by the head of a company. They were investigating the company as a possible pyramid scheme when the CEO decided the best idea would be to put a choke-hold on the reporter and try to vicsously beat him. Cool video.

The Machinist, with Christian Bale, is intriguing me more than just beyond the concept of the movie, because I have not seen it yet. This movie was already out at select theaters. It was a limited-release. And I saw the trailer and just thought "oh my god, he's dying."

Interesting fact:
The producers of the film claim that Christian Bale dropped from about 190 pounds in weight down to about 130 pounds in weight to make this film. They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 110 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 130 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. His 63 pound weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role. He since gained the weight back.

http://kdka.com/topstories/local_st..._055105609.html
With the absolute dumbest caption ever, didn't even match the story.
However, upon reading, it is quite funny indeed, or sad.
You see, Whittaker's grandaughter was "found wrapped in a sheet and a plastic tarp behind a junked van on property owned by a boyfriend's father more than two weeks after she was last seen."

Apparently, "police reported early that Bragg's death did not appear suspicious, Whittaker said he's not convinced foul play wasn't involved"

Yah, because being attacked and suffocated by a sheet and his plastic tarp friend are apparently classified under "natural cause of death".

Someone please remind me what planet I am on.....
Or better yet, I think I'll just pray for an abduction.

Phil on Thursday, February 24, 2005 at 10:45 PM

Hey Baron, if I recall what happened the girl OD on drugs, and everyone else around her freaked out about it and tried to hide the body.

So, technically, no foul play was involved in her death, but her friends aren't very honest.

Green Baron on Friday, February 25, 2005 at 11:22 AM

"Whittaker says the autopsy ruled there was not enough drugs in Bragg's system to suggest she died as the result of an overdose"

Of course, this is coming from a drunk-driving, champagne-room visiting, nutcase. The official report is not yet released.
However, attempting to hide a body, even if innocent, should, in my opinion, be ruled foul play. But that's just my opinion, from a drunk-driving, champagne-room visiting, communist.

Marc on Sunday, February 27, 2005 at 4:07 PM

someone will have to explain those signs to me. but what i assume is that some player with the intials "J.J." who plays for Duke has some phrase or something where it is a compliment for someone to say he is "redickulous". and some UofL fan saw that sign near them and made a make-shift addition for it. am I correct with my deduction? (this is just like " How Would You Move Mount Fuji " all over again.)

Marc on Sunday, February 27, 2005 at 4:08 PM

my bad not UofL

Phil on Sunday, February 27, 2005 at 7:14 PM

The guys name is J.J. Redick.

So the duke fan, thinking he's funny made a sign saying he's Redickulous. The Maryland fans around him made the second sign. Now, I wouldn't be suprised to find out the two "duke fans" were maryland fans planted to do that. I've seen at least 5 different games with guys with someone from the away team with them wearing a t-shirt or holding a sign that says "I'm with stupid"

Marc on Sunday, February 27, 2005 at 7:18 PM

followup guess on the picture of fans holding up signs. is the "ly gay" sign-holder male or female?

Plow King on Monday, February 28, 2005 at 1:07 PM

Wrecking Crew on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 12:43 PM

I agree with Brock about the fact that plans need to move along. Dates are 4/7-4/10. Who's going? Who's going on the Thursday and who's going fri? We need to decide on a place. Who's driving?

Jay on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 1:41 PM

I'm going on Friday. I would really prefer not to drive my piece of shite car.

Bigworm on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 1:56 PM

I took a vacation day for that Friday. We can take my car, I don't really care, however, we also need to decide if we are going to New Orleans or where we are going to.

Since I am off on Friday, I can leave early Friday morning or Late Thursday depending on you are looking at it. I have room for 3 others in my car, let's figure it out.

Phil on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 2:37 PM

it's probably best if I only take Friday off myself. I could take my car close, but with my lease New Orleans might be a bit of a stretch.

I'm up for anything really.

Phil on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 2:38 PM

oh, and my saturday story is best told in person so you can see the shame in my eyes when I tell it.

Brock on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 3:02 PM

I already have rescheduled our lab meeting for that Thursday, so I'll probably drive into Louisville Thursday morning/afternoon.

Also, I could con my dad into borrowing the new conversion van (Shaggin' Wagon)which seats 7 comfortably - just Marc can't drive, I don't want to run out of gas. This would work well if we were walking to pretty much every place where we were since driving and parking the beast van is a pain in the cities.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, March 07, 2005 at 9:27 PM

I believe the plan is for New Orleans. Bill, Scott, and I are looking to go down Thursday hopefully with his Durango, so we do have room for others.
Now we just need to reserve rooms...

Brock on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 11:52 AM

So whats the current head count for the trip then? Can we crash in a single room with sleeping bags or do we need another room? I guess the head count would tell us how many cars we need since it looks like two waves of people going on Thursday and Friday. What time do you plan to leave on Thursday?

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 1:42 PM

I am guessing atleast 2 rooms.

Marc on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 3:34 PM

i'm going, and i can go whenever. already asked off for the friday. i can ask off for the thursday too, with assumably no problem, if that would be easier. i don't care.

we should book it by this week, so we need an official head count.

Brock on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 4:26 PM

If its only like 8 of us, then two cars would be more than enough. How fast have you gotten the Beamer to go Marcus Brody?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7128012/

Marc on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 5:30 PM

priced some hotels near or in french quarter. some are really high but there are a few in the $159-$189 per night (per room) range. so for a a two-night stay for four people going there on friday would be around $80 each (plus taxes) and other expenses. once we know who is for sure all going and where we would like to stay, then we can check the various websites as well as calling the hotels direct to get the best price.

still need a head count though. but sounds like: chris, joe, bill, scott, marc, wes, phil, brock, marc cuban, and jay? (sorry, didn't see that one coming.) anyone wrongly on this list? anyone supposed to be be on this list?

Marc on Tuesday, March 08, 2005 at 5:41 PM

if that number of 10 is correct, then BROCK, maybe you should borrow the van to hold 7 people to go down to new orleans on friday morning(/thursday night) and those who are going thursday (chris, bill, scott, ?) have whatever car they are taking.

Wrecking Crew on Wednesday, March 09, 2005 at 8:18 AM

The count that I have so far...

Thurs- Me, bill, Scott
Fri- Joe, Wes Jay
? day- Marc, Brock
Maybes- Phil, Lynnie, Fu (another med school guy)

I think the majority want 2 rooms, and people will probably still need to sleep on the floor.

Cars- Depending on who goes on thurs we can take Bill's car (4 people) or his Durango (6-7 people). Fri Wes has offered a car (4 people). That could do it depending on a final head count or we need Brock's van or a second car.

I think first thing's first, we need a couple rooms and decide about transportation later. How much Does anyone want to spend on a room? Joe and Bill have offered to put it on their credit cards and be reimbursed later, but we need to find a place by the end of the week.

closer sounds better too me too, aand when you take in the fact that the rooms will be shared by at least 4 people each the price isn't really a factor with those choices. so 2 blocks sounds good to me.

and you're right wes. "a blind homicide detective who carries a gun, a seeing eye dog, and a hot latina partner" That should make one hell of a television show ....or one hell of a porn anyway.

I can go down on Thursday, just let me know when you want to leave. If the car is full for Thursday, I'll wait until Friday.

But I would prefer to start killing Burket with alcohol as soon as possible. I'll probably start the intravenous feed on the drive down when he falls asleep, so he'll wake up hammered.

Phil on Wednesday, March 09, 2005 at 1:46 PM

money for hotels won't be a problem for me either. we'll only be able to kill burket once, might as well do it up proper. because after we kill him once, he'll be dead.

Star Wars II -- Vader to Amidala:

"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere."

(Touching Amidala's skin)

"Not like here. Here everything's soft ... and smooth ... "

... and they begin to make-out ...

At some point, someone has to:

a) Tell George Lucas that this kind of dialogue is not okay; and

b) Create a show where a guy goes to the beach and just replays that scene with unsuspecting strangers.

Phil on Thursday, March 10, 2005 at 4:55 PM

i think 5 people per room might be pushing the limit. but then again, I live in a two bedroom apartment by myself.

I'll volunteer the Jetta for use. The problem is that it is a stick, so I'd have to drive the whole 10 hours I fear. But I think I do owe about 98 hours worth of driving to even the score with big jay. Another issue is that short people only in the back seat. No one taller than 5'8" would be comfortable for more than an hour.

Brock on Friday, March 11, 2005 at 12:37 AM

Man!!! You all are a bunch of pussies sometimes! 2 rooms is more than enough... are you planning to sleep for more than 2 hours anyway??? I know I plan on drinking, passing out on the street, waking up, drinking, and maybe crash on the balcony for a night. This is all peaceful relative to what I expect Burket to go thru. As for cars... just get in the damn thing and drive. Are you driving Ms. Daisy?? Come on!

Bigworm on Friday, March 11, 2005 at 8:53 AM

It's not about being a pussy Schweitzer, it's about being comfortable. Last time I checked I am not a poor college student any longer and have the means to be able to get another room.

I don't mind sleeping next to a dude, we are all friends. With that being said, if I am sleeping next to someone and realize their underwear is by the door on the floor (i.e Brock in Daytona), you will never live it down.

Bigworm on Friday, March 11, 2005 at 8:56 AM

Besides if the rooms cost an average of 150 bucks a night. Here is the cost breakdown per room based on the number of occupancy:

5 people - 60 bucks
4 people - 75 bucks
3 people - 100 bucks

Which I think we can all easily justify.

Phil on Friday, March 11, 2005 at 11:23 AM

another room might keep some of us from having to sleep in one of the many puke stains that might decorate the rooms. also no one will have to sleep with a naked brock.

Wes, the US-England game will be frickin awesome, I am trying to get out of work that week for the sake of going.

Phil on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 1:21 PM

so, uh, i'm still drunk from last night.

joe on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 5:34 PM

so we really are going to new orleans. One room is booked from thurs to sunday and the other is booked fri thru sunday. both are at the baronne. good times!! party on!!

Brock on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 8:56 PM

Solid work Joe!

UC vs. UK in second round???

I only wish it was a more solid UC team that got that opportunity, but still fun.

Bigworm on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 9:17 PM

Okay so we have 2 rooms? Should I book another one then?

mowgli on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 9:46 PM

Brock, How do you log on to the Natty Sci bracket page? I am having issues or maybe I'm just retarded.

Marc on Sunday, March 13, 2005 at 10:28 PM

personally, i'm up for a 3rd room, brent said the double beds at the baronne were small. and we got so big guys going and i think it would just be better.

Phil on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 12:08 AM

To get on the bracket, you first have to login to the ESPN.com page. Then click Add an Entry or whatever, which has a link called "join a group." then type in Natty Sci, and it will ask you for the password.

Jay on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 3:16 AM

I'm certainly up for a third room.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 6:53 AM

3rd room will be up to everyone else. I don't think bill or scott care about sharing a bed. Joe and I will pass out wherever the hell I fall down. The final count that I have is 10, so that's only one person on the floor per night.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 6:55 AM

Fuck the NCAA in all sports. The BCS sucks and so does the fucking selection comitee. UL got screwed!!

Church on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 8:04 AM

A couple things
1. Fuck the selection committee
2. who the hell is Washington and why does the number 14 team in the country get a one seed.
3. Northern Iowa?
4. Northern Iowa, Iowa, and Iowa State all get in the tourney and the Iowa AD is the committee chair. Interesting?
5. Fuck the selection committee

adrian on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 8:30 AM

Come on Brock, don't you have any faith in Jihad?

Brock on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 8:38 AM

Nope, I'm just not going to jinx myself. 7 seed vs. a 2 seed. We have nothing to lose!

Marc on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 10:12 AM

hey adrian, my phone completely died. Must've been an EMP. Damn you Morpheus!. j/k anyway, if you want to grab lunch this week, post a message here. I gotta see my panda soon.

"Hey Marc, her name's Panda... like a BEAR." Rrrrrr

Phil on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 10:16 AM

brock, you have nothing to loose except the round one game. see, you just jinxed yourself.

Brock on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 12:17 PM

True, but you forget the UC "One and out" syndrome. I'd almost rather lose to Iowa than have that happen again.

On the other hand, the uproar the media and Louisville fans are dishing out for the 4 seed, I'd be more worried about that jinx, since they "should" be a 2 seed.

Eventually, you will all rue the day you picked on the poor UC fan.

Phil on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 12:26 PM

yeah, the we should be a two seed thing will bite us. bad karma, right there.

btw, in the ESPN.com national bracket Louisville is the only non-#1/#2 seed in the elite eight.

Give me a little bit and I'll throw together something like I did last year for the basketball stuff.

Brock on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 1:43 PM

What did you throw together? Wasn't it just another post?

adrian on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 1:57 PM

Louisville did get screwed. I will pull for louisville over any bullshit acc team.

Phil on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 2:26 PM

i'm going to throw together a whole seperate basketball related post that has all the info on how to sign up and the such.

but work comes first. look for it around 6:00

Brock on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 4:00 PM

Work? Who actually does work?

I agree with Adrian, the ACC is jocked far too much, but the Big 10 gets way too much praise and most of the teams play terribly weak non-conference schedules. Works for the Big East, but not the Big 10, which has been a mediocre conference for years, but no one will admit it.

I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time. Only afterwards when they realize the world doesn't give two shits about their islands, nor their fingers, did they probably start to miss their digits.

Jay on Monday, March 14, 2005 at 6:13 PM

Phil- this is the girl I think your friend shannon kind of looks like. You know, the one I wouldn't shut up about?

Brock on Tuesday, March 15, 2005 at 10:54 AM

Jay, stop posting pictures of her and just go after her... you've convinced me she's your type. The question is... can she handle the rampaging crazed buffalo?

Green Baron on Tuesday, March 15, 2005 at 1:49 PM

so, this is the way they do things in Romania....

Jay on Tuesday, March 15, 2005 at 2:58 PM

I trying to prove that she looks like Phil's friend. She's not my type at all.
