The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (2/27/08)

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Wednesday edition of the Morning Shotgun/Throwdown, presented by a big room full of empty beer cans.

If you hadn’t noticed, a few of us on this site went to law school. In fact, one of us is finishing the bar exam tomorrow. I won’t say exactly who, but it’s 5th Year Senior. So, when the exam is over, the rest of us are going to take our boy out and get him stinking drunk. By stinking drunk, I mean tanked enough to fill up a bedroom full of empty beer cans. Not a small bedroom, like in the picture, but a really big bedroom, like you see on Cribs.* Somewhere in there, there’s the bed where “all the magic happens.”

Note: Not Redman’s crib.

OK, on to the throwdown!

What You (May Have) Missed:

  • I Am a Fucking Genius: Yesterday, I told you Vandy would beat Tennessee. What happened? My omnipotence, that’s what.  Bow down.
  • We Can Beat A Bunch of White Guys: Right now, according to Bracketology, we’re in the tournament as a #10 seed. Also, apparently, the word “bracketology” is not recognized by my spell check.
  • The Dan Dakich Experiment Begins: Sure, last night was a win, but tell me what happens in 8 more days. Actually, we’re probably close to a week into this thing, so Indiana should have a new coach any day now. Trust me, they’ll be better off.

Videos of (Hilarious) Disinterest:

  • If he’s (bleeping) Ben Affleck, can I (bleepity bleep) Jennifer Garner?  I mean, because we went to the same high school, I tell people I have anyways.
  • Here’s the original.  For those who know me, they can probably guess who’d want to (bleep) in this next video.  Hint, it’s the dude.

What To Watch For:

  • West Virginia (+4.5) @ DePaul: Must, must, MUST win.  Seriously, must win.  Not like that Villanova game last week that we all thought was a must win until we lost by a thousand.  This is actually a must win.  But considering our performances on the road, this isn’t my lock…
  • Penn State (-3.5) vs. Iowa: …but this is.  You want investment advice?  Take Penn State.  Also, invest all your money with me.  Remember, as I told you last week, I now have my GED and I only embezzle a little.

  1. This has precious little to do with anything, and I’m not one of these people who gets all bent out of shape about West Virginia stereotypes, but I think it’s funny that someone from Pittsburgh lost their job over a casting call for inbred WV types.

    In the words of Stewie Griffin, “Your agony sustains me.”

    Maybe I’m just surly because when I arrived at the dealership this morning to drop my car off for service, they told me there’s no courtesy driver when it snows. Do they call what we got in Charleston today snow? It’s hardly worth mentioning.

  2. Also, the ESPN gang keeps calling the guy Dan Dah’-gidge or something like that. I pronounce it Dan Dack-itch, or “soon-to-be-unemployed.”

    Who’s right?

  3. To-may-to, To-mah-to.

  4. Ben Affleck once asked me what it was like to grow up in Charleston, and then acted shocked when I said it wasn’t that bad. He said “there’s not alot of development here, huh?”
