Yo!

Jason said...

Boom! And on to the next round.

Betsy said...

Halo! And we're off running

Josh S. said...

And boom goes the dynamite.

Loney Fan said...

Movin' to the next round. Where are you Quad?

Dusty Baker said...

Oy!

Dusty Baker said...

Your asterisk comment cracked me up, EK! Nice.

Jason said...

Not another phantom right?

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason-

Boo!

Keven C said...

Dagger!

Greg said...

I pity the fool who comes up against me the next round.

Greg said...

actually, damn, it looks like I'm up against Jason the next round. Time to take some time off work!

fanerman said...

Ahhh I just woke up. I forgot to set BOTH my alarms!

Neeebs said...

Like strolling through the park.

Neeebs said...

I think we have a timestamp problem on the first three comments.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs-

THose were from yesterday's inadvertant and nullified post. Nothing to see here, except Paul getting smoked.

Steve Dittmore said...

Greetings from downtown Cleveland and the Summit on Communication & Sport.

BWrightson said...

IINNNNNNN!!!!! Come on, just 4 hours and 40 minutes!

Curious Gene said...

Dammit! Stupid kids. Gotta go to school every freaking day. Car FTL.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

sigh

jmk said...

Shut

Neeebs said...

@DB:

Actually, those would be void and therefore, Betsy still hasn't "officially" posted, has she?

Hmmmmmmmmmm. Since she would be my next opponent...Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

That is correct, per EK's ruling of yesterday evening.

Eric Karros said...

Hmm those first 3 comments from the phantom are indeed in there. those 3 will get credit for them. I'll figure something equitable out.

Curious Gene said...

Okay, I'm out of the car now. I can be more verbose. I congratulate my opponent, who beat me to the punch, not once but twice in one round. Well done.

On the bright side, I actually commented from the car without killing myself or anyone else. Droid FTW.

Mr. Customer said...

...and across the line!

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, my road to the final four looks formidible if current trends hold.

Eric Karros said...

Sorry as all powerful commissiner, those 3 phantom comments will count somehow. I earlier said they wouldn't count cuz I didn't know they'd be preserved

Dusty Baker said...

I think the first two are irrelevant anyway, as Jason and I posted early on today.

Poor Betsy, though...

J. Steve said...

I didn't realize that this changed from "standings" to "2nd half" until just now...

Will I win by default again?

J. Steve said...

I guess it didn't "change" - I was just observant enough to not realize it was a new post!

Josh S. said...

Mr. C, you've got a good shot at the first half if it starts on Monday. I'm off that day and for some reason I'm not on SoSG nearly as much when I'm not at work.

Betsy said...

dang..where does time go

Eric Karros said...

DB - Betsy's comment in the phantom post will count. Either way I'm pretty sure she'll move on anyhow, even if she defaults this half, given the double-default rules.

Betsy said...

No defaulting this round and yay for keeping the earlier post! Take that Neebs :P

Eric Karros said...

I feel a Neeebs vs Betsy smackdown on the horizon, made more intriguing given that Betsy left out an 'e' in his name.

So there are a few potential must-see matchups:

Sweet 16: Neeebs vs Betsy
Final Four: Greg vs Greg
Finals: Quad vs Loney Fan

QuadSevens said...

No upset here.

Betsy said...

Blame it on the happy fingers ;). He might win considering I'll be in AZ this weekend.

Fred's Brim said...

here comes the meaningless dunk to cut it to a 38 point lead

Erin said...

I have a feeling this will be the only round I win.

fanerman said...

Eek. Facing off against Loney Fan next. When is the next round starting? Mondayish?

Eric Karros said...

Nobody here knows how to smack-talk.

Josh S. said...

"Nobody here knows how to smack-talk."

Mr. Customer is always WRONG, bitch!

(How was that?)

Neeebs said...

Oye Betsy. Mira tu espalda porque yo soy El Gringo Loco. Mas loco del todo mundo.

How's that for smack.

Mr. Customer said...

The only thing wrong here is how I'm going to boat race Josh S. next week!

Mr. Customer said...

Nah, I just don't have it in me.

Dusty Baker said...

RB, you will be a worthy opponent more than capable of holding your own, if not possibly prevailing, over me in the forthcoming round. Nonetheless, I express confidence that I, too, have the skills and acumen to advance.

Dusty Baker said...

TBLA just Tweeted this:

Vin Scully, most humble person alive: "I apologize for any concern that I caused."

Humble, indeed. Glad Vinny is ok and ready to broadcast this Sunday.

Greg said...

Ah, shucks ...

Betsy said...

Neeebs I've been watching my back but every time I turn around all I see is you huffing and puffing trying to keep up...

Smack talk is on!

fanerman said...

Yeah... I'm a pansy.

djansson said...

Aww...crap. I concede defeat.

Paul said...

I didn't even see this post.

Ahh well Dusty make me proud and win the whole thing like Bohemond across the Adriatic sea or Alvin and the Chipmunks.

I am leaving early and going pro now.

Dusty Baker said...

This one's for you, Paul!

TD said...

Second post.

rbnlaw said...

Comment.

rbnlaw said...

Screwed.

Eric Karros said...

Ok I think the sweet 16 is set! Only rbnlaw vs BWrightson was even a contest. I will make an official post at some point.

And next round kicks off Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday of next week...

Paul said...

Can the losers go to a specially designated bar like the Assassian game?

Slow to the computer quick to the bar pub...need help with a shorter name.

BWrightson said...

@rbnlaw: I think you thought you were screwed, but in actuality you were not. By my math you've beaten me by about ~38 mins. Alas, my #8 over #1 upset bid was not meant to be.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, we've got an 8-1 upset brewing? That would make SoSG March Madness history if it played out....

Loney Fan said...

So, as it correlates to the NCAA I am a Badger. Better than being an Orangeman any day.

Felix Pardalis said...

huh? how did this disappear yesterday and then come back this morning so that it never reached my rss reader? I smell a fix.

Fite Club said...

Congrats on moving on, QuadStevens.

rbnlaw said...

Thank Gawd Ebglich ist me strongk soot. Knot maths.

Thanks for a good match up, B.

EK can suck it (my smack talk).

DB. No quarter; no mercy. biznach.
