Trash Talk Tuesday: College Hoops and Professional Droops

S’up, peeps!

I realized I never provided the results of the NCAA pool winners. Here then be the info:

Team Name
Best Score
Best Correct
1 Jivin Jenny 109 38 109 38 Louisville (131)
2 David Richardson 60 37 60 37 Gonzaga (129)
3 Chris Thomas 52 30 52 30 Indiana (123)
4 Chicago Realist 41 25 41 25 Marquette (115)
5 Wellness Center 0 0 0 0

A quick summary then, of and for the winners and uhm, the not winners, and hopefully not whinners, of this pool:

Jivin Jenny – Well done! Congratulations! Somethin’ tells me you’ve done this before. Maybe I’ll ask you to fill out my bracket next year.

David Richardson – Moral of the story: It don’t pay to go on sabbatical. You lost your edge. Best to get back in the mix of things and try again next year.

Chris Thomas – A newbie to the bracket competition. For a rookie, you done ok. Better luck next year. You’ll be expected to finish higher in the standings.

Chicago Realist – This is what I get for leaving picks in the hands of Camp Realist members. At least we had our fun. We’ll see what happens next year.

Wellness Center – Wha’ happened? Missed the deadline? Got too busy on the 10th floor? Either way, best that they stay focused on our students. Free pass this year, WC. But don’t forget, it’s called March Madness for a reason. Can’t try to make picks in April.

And that wraps up another pool competition. I ain’t keepin track, but I think PhiloDave still has more overall wins in our competitions that include World Cup and NFL winners. Still, Jivin Jenny made her statement here by winning with an amazing margin of victory. Jivin Jenny, braggin rights are all yours for the time being – until he next friendly on The Lounge.

Now, on to some trash talking…

Thanks for clicking on the read more link!

This past Saturday was a joke! All the professional teams in Chicago lost. Talk about an awful day! Misery does love company – and the city of Chicago! Ugh!

As of today, the Bulls righted their ship and tied the series. Good for them. Now, can they win this series? With or without you know who? Perhaps. But I believe the Heat will be waiting for them. I think they’re up for that match too!

Hawks. Have lost two in a row (tie or no tie = no win). Are they bored of the regular season? Will they get their act in order for the playoffs? Methinks so. Stanley Cup? Shhh….

Cubs. What can I say ’bout these North Siders? I thought they’d have more wins. 5 don’t cut it. Rebuilding year II? Will they match their loss total from last year. At the pace they’re going looks like it – and then some. It’s a pain to watch. They have no relief pitching. I don’t think I could do any worse. Where do I sign?

Sox. Now weren’t they suppose to be better than the Cubs this year? Weren’t they going to be this city’s answer to MLB? If ya ask me they’re playin’ like a AAA team. What gives? Maybe they should call it a rebuilding year too??

Ok, have your say. Best to vent and get it out of your system. It’s gonna be a looooong summer, peeps.
