NCAA Tourney Open Thread: Championship Game

It's an all-canine matchup! Who's a widdle bulldog! You are! That's right, you're just a widdle puppy! And who's the cutest widdle husky who wants to win the game tonight? Good puppy! Are you two gonna work your widdle tails off to try to win the championship? Even when the basketball is bigger than you are? Now who wants a tummy rub?

The puppy talk bit cracked me up.

I want a tummy rub!

Steve Sax said...

Will Butler lumber its way to victory this time?

Jimbo said...

Who doesn't want a tummy rub?

Eric Karros said...

The scary thing is Orel talks like that in real life.

Steve Sax said...

Elmer Fudd left a voicemail (on 1-360-TO-JIMBO, by the way). He wants his credit for the post, Orel.

Orel said...

Shhh...I'm hunting wabbits.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

There's not much participation in this game thread.

Orel said...

Looks like the crowd's going to get tacos. 22-19 Butler at the half.

Jimbo said...

The game has already started? This Jimbo is staying at work a touch late today to take care of a few things.

Orel said...

I was going to say I blame Jimbo. And it looks like I'm right!

Dusty Baker said...

THIS IS ONE PIECE OF SHIT GAME.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, this game is not very good.

Orel said...

These teams are jackin' up more threes than a Sesame Street mechanic.

Dusty Baker said...

Just let them inbound the fuckin ball!

Orel said...

Yeah, this is pretty ugly.

Orel said...

Apparently someone put Saran Wrap on the rims.

Dusty Baker said...

It's end-of-the-first-period-score time.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to be really disappointed if UConn wins.

el montanero said...

Well shit. Switching over to the Kings' game.

Spank said...

Fuck this. I'm going to watch Touched by an Angel.

Orel said...

Get prepared to be really disappointed.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

You don't want to watch the Kings game, El M. Trust me.

el montanero said...

Shooting 15% in a championship game, doesn't get any uglier than that.

el montanero said...

Will Dustin Penner ever score again for the Kings? Memories of Anson Carter come flooding back.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't even know anymore, man.

Dusty Baker said...

This is one of the shittiest end of season finales in a sport that I can recall. Except for a lot of Super Bowls.

Jimbo said...

This goddamn game is so stupid. How does this happen in a title game? UConn could play Butler 100 more times and the game wouldn't go like this.

el montanero said...

Agreed, Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

It's like Butler's coach sent the guys out there and instructed them not to score. And they have made mistakes on executing that directive to the tune of 38 points.

@DB RE Those awful super bowl in the late 80s and early 90s? Especially the ones the 49ers, Cowboys and Redskins were winning. Were the niners 45 points better than the broncos? No. They were 45 points better than the Saints or Falcons, but the best team from the AFC

Something weird happens in title games and things go completely haywire. I blame the refs and how they control (or don't control) the games. This game was letting everything go down low. Shit that every ref calls in every other game

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like the Huskies have themselves a championship.

An ugly, ugly championship.

Dusty Baker said...

94 total points. Just...shitty.

Fred's Brim said...

I blame Pat Riley

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Yeah recent Super Bowls have been much better, presumably at least partially as a result of NFL's parity goals.

Dusty Baker said...

I blame the shitty Butler shooting. These guys could order a PBR at the Short Stop.

Josh S. said...

The remaining Jimbo is Mr. F, right?

Orel said...

Post-Game Thread up, for some reason.

Josh S. said...

Oh,and I bought The Show 11 tonight. Haven't had a chance to try it, though.
