Someone who doesn't get sarcasm (vs. Real political post), or doesn't think Stalin playing basketball is funny. Or REALLY likes Obama. I know it wasn't Barack reading and negging...I saw him on tv shooting baskets. He was no where near a computer. (The guy would have hated what I FIRST found when I searched "Stalin playing basketball" - #1 google is an Obama/Stalin lawn sign. Now THAT I thought was too political. Heck, I don't even think my pick is Stalin...I think it's Lenin).

I mean, you or I don't really need the points. But it seemed to be overflowing to everyone (all those -1). I just hate someone being a dick. And a cowardly one at that.

And I thought the idea of Stalin shooting hoops (you know, instead of gypsies), hilarious. I was trying to think of a basketball skill he couldn't do. But we all know he could dribble drive, and penetrate...into Germany. And not being able to do a pick and roll just didn't seem witty enough. So I let a picture be a thousand words. But apparently a statue of a Russian leader shooting a basketball is too much like POLITICS ARRRGGHH for some.

But if it ends up Butler-Duke has Could you set up a better David vs. Goliath match-up for fans outside of Durham to root for? Sure we had our NC State's, and Villanovas. But they weren't a true mid-major, playing at home, in basketball rich, Hoosiers Indiana. And while the teams they were playing were better, and thus bigger giants, none engender the hate that Duke does.

That would be pretty epic. If Duke doesn't kill 'em.

OMG ITS JUST LIEK HOOSIERS! BUTLER IS SO BRAVE! MY FAVORITE PLAYER IS THE GUY IN THE WHEEL CHAIR!!!!!!

Can we give that storyline a rest? Butler was a top ten team in the preseason coaches poll. This isn't Florida Atlantic or Cal Poly. Butler is a very good team.
