Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
T-Minus 1 hour and 35ish minutes until the start of the tournament and brackets lock. Here is the LINK - http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/2014-espn-tournament-challenge-back - fo that.
I'll be watch the games on my computer and/or phone at work using this --> www.ncaa.com/march-madness . Unfortunately taking time off has been blocked by the superiors. Also an app available on the Apple Store and GooglePLAY.
Apparently it's popular for guys to schedule a vasectomy this time of year --> www.cnn.com/2014/03/16/us/march-madness-vasectomies/
Some matchups that I'm looking forward to watching (besides the obvious):
Dayton vs Ohio State - Dayton is a trendy upset pick here. We'll see.
Pittsburgh vs Colorado - this could end up being the game of the day
NC State vs St. Louis - this is my upset pick, if it can be considered an upset based on seeding
Arizona State vs Texas - scouting our potential next opponent
What are other games you're keeping an eye on?
Now that we've had a couple hours to calm down and digest what has happened, it is FINALLY that time to get all your brackets filled out! Good luck to everyone!
I just got done listening to every single ESPN analyst pick Sparty to win the tournament. Apparently, beating Michigan for the B1G tourny title puts them back on that horse. <sigh> I'm sure no one here is going to make that mistake.
