The Morning Shotgun/Throwdown (3/17/08)

Welcome, By-Godders, to the drunken shit-faced hammered tanked St. Patrick’s Day edition of the Morning Shotgun/Throwdown, presented by Guinness.

St. Patrick’s Day is one my absolute favorite holidays, mostly because of the approved drinking status it enjoys. I mean, Fourth of July and Memorial Day are great to get drunk — along with President’s Day, Flag Day, and Frank Stallone’s Birthday — but St. Patrick’s Day takes it to a whole new level. Plus, it’s about the only time where it’s OK and accepted to admit your Irish.

OK, on to the (drunken) Throwdown!

What You (May Have) Missed:

  • Attack of the Bracket: It’s not really an attack, but they rhyme so I ran with it. Basically, everything for the next three to four weeks is going to be nothing but NCAA tournament. National productivity will probably hit an all-time low. And just so my employer knows, I will be returning to work the first full week in April.
  • Two Step With A Little Twist: CBS has the Selection Show video up, split into regions. If you want to see Da’Sean Butler’s award winning celebration, this is the link for you.

Best Televised Reaction Shot: West Virginia’s high-stepping, track-suited celebration was made for TV. And just so Bob Huggins. We must ignite this couch!

  • The NIT Selection Shit Show: That’s the great thing about college basketball. Sure, we might be defending NIT champions, but that’s not going to stop me from making fun of Virginia Tech for the next week.

What To Watch For:

  • College Basketball Invitational: My guess is that this selection special comes live from a Newark area Holiday Inn. Maybe Jersey City, but definitely New Jersey.
  • Two and a Half Men: Really, there’s not much else sports-wise going on until Thursdays, so please enjoy this hilarious TV-14 comedy. Or you could…
  • Get Ridiculously Drunk!: Yeah, whoooo, party! Boobs! $^$#&*$(^%*$^*!!!!!!1!!!

  1. Anybody hear something about WVU getting a commitment from a top WR from VA?

  2. Yeah, that was Logan Heastie, the #1 WR in the country. We have something coming this afternoon on both he and another verbal, #21 QB Tajh Boyd.

  3. i went to the Rivals.com snapshot you have a link to, and was underwhelmed. The guy was hung up on the idea that WVU lives and dies by the three-pointer. did he not watch any WVU games the last three weeks?

  4. You guy’s are about 3 days late on breaking the news of possible the 2 biggest committs on 09. Basketball comes second to football int the mountain state. Christ sake people, the HCBS is shaking up CFB recruiting right now! Tajh Boyd is the most mechanically sound junior QB that you will ever see in high school!

  5. I went to a bar/restaurant in Santa Fe NM for Saint Patrick’s Day and they ran out of Guinness before 7 PM, WTF????????????
