Holy Thursday

It is the holiest day of the year...the start of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. I have been distracted from posting because, as usual, I am poring over basketball stats in the hope of making a bracket that doesn't suck. I will also be using my combined powers of wireless Internet and working at home to attach my office to the couch today and tomorrow. For the record, I have North Carolina, Wisconsin, Memphis, and UConn in the Final Four. Upset special is Davidson over Georgetown in round two, and Marquette getting to the Elite Eight. My bracket should be ruined by 4:15 Eastern today.

The comedy elves are at work on new jerking, but until then, there are a couple Obama-related items that cracked me up:

The Onion: Black Guy Asks Nation for Change

Chappelle's Show: Black Bush (which seems funny after the Obama/Wright kerfluffle this week) Note: uncensored and not work safe.

One last note: I saw the curb out in front of my house for the first time since late November. Spring is in the air!

OH MY GOD. Bruins not even making the Final Four?!

Brando is banned. FOR LIFE.

Brando said...

You want to know what sealed me not picking UCLA? Bill Simmons picked them to win it all. That's the kiss of death.

Fun facts: Dave didn't mean to knock over the water on the table, but it was the best take. There was more to that shot, but it had to be cut because everyone was laughing and cleaning up the water.

The woman's voice-overs that you hear are from Blair, who did music rights clearances. She was dating a guy named... Blair.

It took all night to edit that sketch, it was originally over 20 minutes long.

(Did you know I used to work as a Post Production PA for Chappelle's Show? Thanks for taking me down memory lane!)

Noelle, had you mentioned that on your blog? I didn't recall it. I love the second season of Chappelle's Show. That's some of the best sketch comedy I've ever seen. It's funny how the water getting knocked over was an accident because them fleeing the press conference is so perfect.

great. as if I couldn't hate Bill Simmons enough.

Oh Kathleen, you are such a girl. The Boston Bruins are a hockey team.

I suck so much at this. My big time sleeper in one pool, Baylor, is already toast. Did I mention that I suck at this?

Churlita said...

Holy Thursday, Batman. It's March Madness time! Wisconsin, eh? We'll see...

Brendan said...

Thanks for the Chappelle link. Never saw that one before.

Sorry about UConn.

We have now reached the limits of my awareness of March Madness.

Brando said...

Thanks, Brendan. I obviously know nothing about college basketball either.

The irony is that I went to University of San Diego High School, across the street from the USD that screwed my bracket hopes this year. I almost went with the homer upset, then said don't be such a homer.

Oh well, now I get to focus on the beauty of the game instead of scooping up a few extra bucks.
