I "won" the right to purchase these seats for $190

I “won” the right to purchase these seats for $190

Attending the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four has been a dream of mine since I was about 12 years old.  It was a bucket-list item on my non-existant bucket-list.  When I heard the NCAA offers tickets at face value through a lottery system, I fronted the $760 for four $190 tickets plus the non-refundable $20 fee for the chance at a once-in-a-lifetime trip.  When I got the email notification that my application had been successful, I was ecstatic.  When I got the email notification of where I’d be sitting, 3 words came to mind: What. The. Fuck.  Read the rest of this entry »

Last night Earl, Jon, and Matt talked about a variety of topics. The show opened up with the Ultimate Warrior’s theme music. It was only fitting that his music was played, 24 hours after his tragic death. The guys bounced around a lot of baseball for the first half of the show, but then talked about NCAA Basketball, NHL, NBA, Ultimate Warrior, and finally, The Masters. Take a listen and let us know what you think!

Last night Matt and Earl got their first taste of New York Mets fans ready to jump off the Shea Bridge. Regular callers @MidnightBashem and @xTomatoez weighed in while the Mets were still playing. The New York Knicks were slaughtering the Brooklyn Nets, but that didn’t stop a discussion about the Knicks sneaking into the playoffs. Matt and Earl also touched on the Final Four and gave their picks.

Going into the Elite 8, three of my Final Four predictions and Kentucky (who I said would make it if they beat Wichita State) were still alive.  As it turns out, I went 1 for 4 (c’mon, give me 2 with that Kentucky call) as Florida, UConn, Wisconsin, and Kentucky cut down the nets in their respective regions.  I’m heading down to North Texas on Friday, so before I go I’d like to give you my predictions for the 3 remaining games.

After knocking off the UNC Tarheels to advance to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Iowa State Coach Fred Hoiberg broke it down in the locker room… sorta. Read the rest of this entry »


2 weeks ago, SMU was ranked 18th in the nation and seemed destined for their first trip to the NCAA tournament in over 20 years.  After ending the season on a 3 game losing streak, though, Larry Brown’s squad will have to settle for the NIT.  They’re the only real snub I see not in the tournament this year.  Some will say Green Bay at 24-6 deserved an at-large bid, but they didn’t really beat anyone worth talking about all year.

Looking at the brackets, it’s possible we’ll see a 9 seed in the Final Four.  Here is my list of the probable Cinderella’s in this years NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament: Read the rest of this entry »

Marcus Smart

After losing 7 games in a row, 3 of which occurred during Marcus Smart’s suspension, the Oklahoma State Cowboys seemed destined for the NIT.  With pretty much no statement wins (split with Memphis) and a 16-10 record, they seemed to be toast.  Then they blew out Texas Tech in Marcus Smart’s return.  Then TCU.  And last night, the Cowboys got their marquee win as they stunned #5 Kansas.  Take them off the bubble, the Cowboys are going dancing.

Tyler Ennis

Behold exhibit 8,591,459 of the NCAA profiting off of college athletes while the students themselves get nothing in return.  Darren Rovell retweeted an image of t-shirts being sold at the Carrier Dome and University bookstores in Syracuse that blatantly reference star freshman point guard, Tyler Ennis from Canada.  Read the rest of this entry »

20130726_arena2Auburn’s most famous golf alumni, 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner, would be rather proud of what took place at halftime of the Tigers’  basketball game against Mississippi State.

And you know what would make your first college game a lot better? Getting picked out of the crowd to attempt a putt the length of the floor for a new car and making it despite never having picked up a golf club in your life. 

That happened this weekend at Auburn when Patrick Burch got pulled out of the crowd.

Check out the impressive video after the jump.
