Breakfast with the Hysterics

Oh sweet happy day, the tournament is about to begin today. Finally, no more talks about every #1 seed making the Final Four, and Dick Vitale foolishly picking Duke to reach the Final Four. Today the games start, of course most of us are going to be stuck at work, but remember CBS sportsline is streaming all the games this year, so if you are sneaky enough, you can get away with it. But for most of us who are watching because of a bracket we have filled out, this is the day when you tear it all up. For many of us, our "sleeper" picks usually fall flat on their face, some team you've never heard of tears up the tournament, and leaves your bracket, and probably your money in the shitter. Last year it was Davidson and Western Kentucky that royally fucked most of us over (not me, I nailed both, but I seemed to miss just about everything else), this year who the hell is it goign to be? Robert Morris? Florida St?

If you haven't already heard on Slowbreaker our fantastic editor/pervert GHABBY is in NYC watching the tournament. The lucky mf got Thursday and Friday off of work, so he is basically living the American dream: watching college basketball for two days straight while directly assaulting his liver. So as you sit and watch streaming games at your desk, or that terrible "Gamecast" on ESPN, silently pray that someone slips GHABBY a Rufee and he ends up tied up in the basement of a guy named Larry in Brooklyn.

Finally the Celtics beat the Heat, and guess what? NO ONE GOT HURT!!!! WOOOOOOO. True the Heat were playing without D-Wade, and they were not wearing Green to confuse the Celtics, but hey a win is a win. Especially with the Magic winning their game. On the "Oh Shit" side of things, we learned that Leon Powe is going to be out for at least two weeks. One step forward, two steps back.

Hey, join our bracket challenge:

Ok, ok, I'm in. Just filled out my bracker. Wasn't going to do one this year, but I figured that would make me gay or something.

And in case anyone cares, I pulled a Ghabby as well.
