March Madness... I'm MAD.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. I love College basketball, and I love filling out my bracket and seeing how well I do, but it's driving me "MAD". I have had my eyes glued to the television for 4 straight days. I even bought the NCAA package so I can watch all the games at once. The games are so close and there is so much good competition between under dogs and favorites, big schools and small schools that I'm getting confused. I know who I picked, but while I'm watching the game sometimes I get confused about who I want to win. For example, I have Pitt making it to the Final Four, but while watching their games against East Tennessee State University and Oklahoma State University I wanted them to lose. Am I the only person who does this? Am I the only person who watches the game and wants someone else to win other than who they picked? I feel like something is missing... Where are George Mason, Gonzaga (before they were top 25 every year), Davidson, Valpo, Princeton in the Sweet 16? No where to be found 2 years in a row. I'm getting a whole lot of March, a whole lot of MAD, but no Madness!!!

I guess it's just when you see the underdog small school David playing so hard and being successful against the big school Goliath, that you can't help but respect that and root for them to win. Maybe I just want drama regardless of who wins, I want Valparaiso to win on a last-second shot, Christian Laettner to hit an improbable turn around, or Tyus Edny to drive the length of the court and break my heart. Between last year's tournament and this year's tournament, I'm feeling cheated! All of the number one and number two seeds are still alive. It's like if you pick the higher seed to win you will be right.

I remember watching games in the good old days and you didn't have a clue who was gonna win. One minute you wanted to pull your hair out because it seemed like it would take a miracle for your team to win, then when the horn blew to end the game you were jumping for joy. At the end of the tournament we should be able to watch "One shining moment" and get chills down our spines from the excitement and heartache we have felt from watching the NCAA tournament. I'm enjoying watching the games, but I miss the good old days!!!

Now I'm just MAD from March Madness. I'm MAD because the teams I picked are winning. I'm MAD because I haven't seen a last second half court shot to win the game. I'm MAD because I'm confused. I'm MAD because the underdog keeps losing in games that I picked them to lose but watching the game makes me want them to win. I'm MAD because Wake Forest lost. I'm Mad because I know the tournament is half over and that makes me sad.

And to top it all off... I'm MAD because I had to turn to the last seconds of the Heat-Pistons game and watch the Pistons get cheated out of a win to get the drama I was craving. I can't stand the Heat. Go Lakers!!!!

White Men Can Jump, Just Not Good Though!!!!

This is hilarious. If you can't complete a dunk without this happening then you need to play below the rim!!! How did he manage to do this? The funniest part is after it happens, he gets up and runs back down the court like nothing ever happened. I would think his ego would be bruised, but this guy doesn't look like he has an ego.

At what point did she think this was a good idea? She was so into the song I think she forgot where she was and thought she was performing in from of a packed Madison Square Garden.

Trophy

I want a trophy wife that has everything I want and need to raise a family, and will love me and stay with me until death do us part.

Athletes and entertainers are held to a high standard when it comes to fashion and style. But another talked about area is wives and girlfriends. I was in the barbershop a couple days ago and regular barbershop chatter was going on about sports; and the topic of players wives came up and I heard a comment that bothered me: "Man, I saw PLAYER X and his wife during the all star weekend and she is not an NBA wife." That's not the first time I've heard a comment like that. I don't understand why so much emphasis is put on athletes wives appearance. In this certain instance, the player has been married to his wife for a long time, so I look at it like his wife may not be Halle Berry, but shes doing something right to keep a marriage going 10+ years in 2009.

When a man is looking for a wife, hes supposed to be searching for a woman of high moral character who will take good care of him, turn his house into a happy home, and be there to support him and help him and the family grow mentally, physically, and spiritually, and is attractive to him. (Because these qualities are very important,) While you are looking for all that, you may not get a beauty queen but a great woman with a great heart. Would you rather have eye candy on your arm that may leave you in 5-7 years, or a good woman that may not have the look of the stereotypical "athletes wife" but will be your best friend for a lifetime? 

Reality is, it's possible to have both, a beautiful woman that is down for you and loves you till the end but it does not always work out like that. My point is: why should how pretty an athletes wife is define who she is as a woman or a wife? After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

This Guy Drinks Diet Sprite

Do you remember the "Grant Hill drinks sprite" commercials, where the guy tries to dunk and gets the ball caught on the rim? Well this guy doesn't even drink regular sprite, he drinks diet sprite because this is just embarrassing. He hits his face on the rim because he had NO business on the court attempting that dunk. Rasheed Wallace rightfully throws the towel at him in disgust. I know all fans want to be "part of the game", but please leave the stunts to the professionals.




I know what is wrong with the economy and the country.  This is the new dance craze!!! Kids and ADULTS (GROWN PEOPLE) are doing this everywhere. I hate it. This is soooooo retarded. People thought the soulja boy dance was bad, this is just outrageous. Hip-hop could quite possibly be dead.







Please tell me none of you are doing this at home or in public.

Iron Mike

Mike Tyson vs Bob Sapp. "Iron" Mike Tyson made more money prize fighting than anyone EVER, grossing over 300 million. That's a big number, but with taxes, expensive habits, leaches taking advantage of him, and Don King those dollar dwindled faster than the stockmarket in '09.

Getting back on topic, Bob Sapp calls out Mike Tyson and is acting crazy. Ironically, Mike Tyson is the one keeping is cool and being professional. I'm so confused. I wonder what goes through Mike's head and makes him tick....hmmmm. actually I don't, that's probably a VERY scary place. I'm afraid I would come back and not be same!
