RAB Bracket Busters

A weaker lineup with Matsui limited
AL East chat at Beyond the Boxscore

The NCAA Tournament kicks off this afternoon, and I started a Tournament Challenge group at Yahoo that you can join. There aren’t any prizes, just bragging rights, but you’ll get to pick your brackets and have fun following along. The scoring doubles each round, from one point in the first round to two points in the second to four in the fourth, and so on. If you want in, go here and click “Join A Group.”

League ID#: 187724
Password: hiphipjorge (not sure if it’s case sensitive)

There’s a limit of 500 people in the group, so first come first serve. The games start in like, an hour, so get to filling your brackets out. Oh, and if you have anything you want us to answer in today’s podcast, email it to either Joe or myself using the links on the right.

      The first two rounds of March Madness is like the Dominican Republic v. The Netherlands, except it’s 48 of those games packed into 4 days.

      Rooting for underdog Davids to pull upsets of incredible Goliaths is fun. Brings out the inner populist in everyone, even Republicans.

      • jsbrendog

        nope, still dont care.

        • Mike Pop

          You….jerk!

          nope, still dont care.

          JSB, if I were to give you some money out of my wallet, would that help ease the pain?

          • jsbrendog

            yes. yes it would. and i think that has become one of my favorite lines due to its (possible over)use here.

            another one i feel we need to work in more is…well, i’ll wait to see if a time comes when it applies.

            • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

    Alright, my bracket’s in. I eagerly look forward to being beaten by UWS, Rebecca, YankeeGirl49, RCK, or Marsha.

    • whozat

      Always have a safe word!

    • UWS

      Meh, I don’t have time for this nonsense. The only team I care about (Cornell) will get knocked out in the first round anyway.

    • Yankeegirl49

      I wasnt going to enter as I am in a few pools, but after Tommie’s comment, I guess I have to. Tho I thought it was too late, but they let me submit one of my brackets that was done already. Its still saying incmplete tho..so dont know if Im in or not.

  • Tony

    Screw the davids – I’m rooting for goliath

  • Rafi

    Got my bracket done in 10 minutes…and it looks really similar to my espn bracket

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I somehow ended up with both #1’s and both #2’s in my Final Four. Yeah … that ain’t happening.

      • Mike Pop

        Heh, got that too.

        (Praying that Lawson is able to play by the second round)

      • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

        I’ve got 3 ones and a 2.

        • Mike Pop

          Michigan State or Memphis?

          • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

            MSU.

            • Mike Pop

              Izzo = my favorite coach.

              • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

                Yeah, I like him.

  • Stryker

    awesome – signed up and bracket is filled out. looks like i’m a louisville fan this year (sorry matt).

  • Steve in MN

    couldn’t get my bracket in on time, wish they had posted this yesterday instead of the day of the tourney…

    • Joey

      yea me 2, keep getting an error “this is not a private group” which I guess means you’re too damn late. Oh well, don’t like basketball (in general) to begin with, only would do one of these with RAB.

  • Mike Pop

    No Calhoun for UConn. Hope he turns out alright, UConn should still dominate.

  • Drew

    MAN!! i wish i wouldve known earlier, im in a stupid lohud group. If Cal doesnt turn it around i’m screwed anyway tho
