Final Four MUPPETS!!!!

Submitted by Seth on March 31st, 2013 at 4:31 PM

I just spent the last 2 hours pinching myself, so either this dream is completely immune to pinching or that just happened.

And you can't have one without the other…

You guys have it HUSBAND went to Syracuse. We've been rooting for both teams the whole season. What are the odds at the beginning of the season that they would face each other in the Final Four?

Today is my birthday, though, so I''m just enjoying the great gift this team has bestowed. Go Blue!

If you ever have to choose between the two, root for Michigan. Those are my words of wisdom.

Last years's Northwestern OT game at the big house, the lady next to me went to UM for undergrad and Northwestern for law school. She said she was just rooting for a good game and I said, "no.". Root for Michigan.

I think muppets are getting old now. We've used them way too frequently. 

Final Four appearance calls for Kate Upton on the front page.

Who do you all want - Duke or Louisville?

Hate Duke forever and ever, but how nice would it be to play them in the finals?

Louisville is better, I think, but a style that might fit us a little better, right?

Duke with Kelly has been amazing.

(yes, I know we have to beat Syracuse first).

I can't be prouder of our team and how they are playing.

I will say I am worried about Syracuse and how much time they have to plan for us....they had a full week to plan for Indy and spanked them.

When we play like this tho I feel like we are close to unstoppable.

Go blue! hail.

I asked my 13 year daughter "what's the appropriate comment?" She didn't miss a beat and said "You can't have one without the other." This day just keeps getting better.

I freaking love muppets.

Said this shit is ours right after pulling out KU. Came out and played inspired. So happy and proud. It's been a LONG time since I was a junior at UM, i.e. 1993.

Long-time lurker, figured this would be a great place to get some help. I'm going to Australia tomorrow (Monday evening) and will be in Melbourne for the Final 4 (and then in Sydney if we win).

Anyone have any experience either watching the NCAA tourney abroad (I read that CBS MMOD doesn't work outside US) or know of any bars in Melbourne and/or Sydney to watch the games? I can't wait for the early-mid morning start over there.

I'm doing a google search also, but so far no luck and will certainly ask people over there, but just wanted to see if any of you had first hand experience either in Australian bars or watching the tourney from anywhere else overseas.  I did check the bar locator map, but didn't see anything.

Thanks for any input!

Blueinuk and Burge333 - appreciate the responses. I forgot ESPN was showing these overseas (as I heard everyone's favorite, Dickie V will be calling the Final 4 on ESPN International). I'll be staying at fairly large hotels, but should be close to bars and I will keep in mind that it will be on ESPN International - thanks Burge! I'll actually be in NZ from April 16-May 1. Not enough time, but checking out Queenstown, Wanaka, Franz Josef, Christchurch/Akaroa and then Auckland before hitting the Great Barrier Reef area back in Aus. If you're in one of those areas and UM happens to win, we should get a celebratory drink! (Traveling alone, I know no nobody!)
