Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture, and life in general.
And thus begins the madness...
Here again are the rules, and here's the bracket:
kill Kill KILL!
Who you calling a git?
Sock Monkey Regional is underway!
Deltalina! Oh wait...
What do I do?
I didn't think I was signed up. Ex..ell-ent.
@FanermanJust remember not to call a timeout if you've already used up all three of yours already.
Still deciding whether I care to fill out a bracket with no UCLA or North Carolina in the field of 64....
^minus the second, superfluous "already"
From way downtown ... BANG!
Personally I think the Sock Monkey regional is the toughest. The 1-8 matchup of FB vs Fanerman is brutal, and there's 3 or 4 other regulars too.The Mr X regional has both returning final four competitors from last year (Neeebs and w.d.d.i.m.), but I think Sock Monkey top to bottom is stronger.
And I haven't even started drinking yet!
In like Flynn
First matchup is locked down: Jason leads Curious Gene by 14 minutes at the half out in the Robot Regional.
D... amn. I was on the other thread.
I love being in the Robot bracket.
This could be bad.
I swear I refreshed the website at noon before lunch and this post wasn't here. Still got in before my opponent though, so it's all good.
I love that "GregPhoto" and "GregNoPhoto".
Dusty!!!!!Seeing Tommy in green. Seeing Andre in green. And now I am green with envy I didn't check the site early!!!!
I was going to say 14 minutes isn't great, but if we're the first completed matchup for this half of this round, then maybe it's better than I thought.
James just crushed one! Top of the morning to ya Chicago!
You still da man, Paul.
I just realized I have to go the finals in order to face Quad.We are going to have to work hard to get to destroy each other.
GregPhoto checking in!I am definitely not clicking "email follow-up comments." :)
"I love being in the Robot bracket."Kismet, Erin.
Any surprises so far? No Mr. LASF yet?
The second half of this game could be interesting... Flying to Cleveland tomorrow to present at a conference on Friday. May not have good access.
It just occurred to me. I'm flying Delta tomorrow. Do you think the flight attendant on my 50-seat regional jets could be Deltalina?Yeah. Me neither.
I'm flying Delta to Venice. Deltalina might be there, but I won't care. I voted for Flo.
Completed matchups so far:Paul > DB by 48mS Dittmore > Greg Photo by 98mJason > Curious Gene by 14mKeven C > Booger by 82m(please doublecheck)
I thought the diff b/t Paul and me was 57 mins (I posted right at 12 and he at 12:57).
Bleah. Damn you meetings, damn you.
personally, i'm looking forward to the epic final four match between GregPhoto and GregNoPhoto.
I saw the same thing LoneyFan. When the bracket first came out, I searched for you to see how soon I would need to come up with a game plan. If we do meet in the finals, that will have lots of elbows thrown and a few technicals I'm sure.
Yeah Sorry DB, don't know how I screwed it up that particular way. Corrected score:DB > Pau by 57mS Dittmore > Greg Photo by 98mJason > Curious Gene by 14mKeven C > Booger by 82m
Well Quad, I know you and I have the experience and the motivation to get there. I'm going to plan on meeting you in the final for the epic battle we so deserve. Facing off in the finals is the only proper thing anyway. If we had played first round it would have been anticlimactic.
Neeeeebs is the defending champ, right?
Yeah Loney Fan and Quad were put on opposite sides for the potential TV ratings bonanza. BUT...you both have to get there first.Yup, Neeebs is reigning champ. He and w.d.d.i.m. are the only returning final four-ers.
Dammit, I'm really behind
I've been injured all year. I'm not sure whether I have what it takes to make it back to the championship, let alone, get out of my bracket.
FYI I'm changing a minor rule that says comments always remain open and instead say I reserve the right to end a round (1st or 2nd half) when I deem appropriate. I'll leave plenty of time, but it's just too much tracking confusion to leave things open forever...
Whew. I'm in ahead of my competition.I hate firewalls, by the way. Why can't my employer just trust me like every other sucker, er, let me rephrase that.
Now to analyze possible second round matches. . .ME VS. DUSTY?????The bracket gods must be crazy. I'm throwing the Coke bottle over the cliff.
Nice reference RB. Now firewall do your job.
Fake basketball doesn't seem to generate the same response as debating the appeal of two marginally famous women.
Or trying to "assassinate" other readers by posting in a pre-determined order.
here we go
Wow, missed it by that much!
first round upset in the making
my dedication to St Paddy's Day has killed my chances of advancing :(
hey folks, fyi I will try to post a recap sometime today...or when the next comment-time thread posts, whenever that may be...
Doh!! Not a good start.
Am I too late? Damn, I thought games were starting on Thursday
