NCAA Championship Game Tweets
A collection of my tweets from Monday night’s championship game… Enjoy!
6:01 – How the hell did Diddy get this intro? And are there any actual lyrics in this song? All I hear is “let’s work.”
5:58 – All the experts are picking Duke. I’m gonna say it right now, Butler is winning this thing.
6:07 – Anyone else realize what BS that NCAA “Where does the money go” commercials is? Short answer: into the pockets of our executives.
6:08 – I’m sorry, the money is not going to the kids. It’s just not. And anyone who believes otherwise is delusional.
6:11 – Over/under on how many coaches Tracy Wolfson has slept with: five. I would bet every dollar I have that she’s done Nick Saban.
6:21 – As much as I hate bandwagon Duke fans, the Duke student section is the best in college sports. The Cameron Crazies have no equal.
6:22 – Side note – Did you know Duke only has 6,000 undergrads. Seriously. (http://tinyurl.com/y8cc5f2) Makes the Cameron Crazies that much more impressive.
6:37 – I think Don “Moose” Lewis (http://tinyurl.com/ya33ltr) would love how this game is going right now. Very fundamental.
6:39 – I don’t know if there’s a single first-rd draft pick on either of these teams. I think Singler and Zoubek could make a roster, but that’s it.
6:48 – Butler is making ALL the hustle plays. And Duke just got its second traveling call in two minutes. Seriously…
7:03 – “Veasley’s gotta think about pulling that out, giving up so much size inside, after whipping it out.” – Clark Kellogg
7:08 – Jukes missed the dunk. The only black player on the court just blew a dunk. SMH.
7:12 – The first commercial for the Apple Maxipad. Am I the only person that realizes this thing is just a laptop without a keyboard?
7:19 – They’re replaying the Da’Sean Butler–Bob Huggins makeout. Priceless.
7:24 – I love Evan Turner, I think he’s one of four players this year who will make it in the NBA. POY he is not.
7:25 – Ask yourself this question: If you were making a college basketball team, who would your first pick be?
7:25 – If you said anyone other than John Wall, you’re either an idiot or just lying to yourself.
7:28 – Greg Gumbel’s perm still bothers me.
7:36 – I just looked up Greg Gumbel on Wikipedia and he’s 63-years-old. He’s 63! That’s incredible. This makes his perm even more offensive.
7:38 – I just realized how much Zoubek looks like Zangief from Street Fighter down there on the block.
7:45 – When did Kyle Singler become the white LeBron James?
7:47 – Seriously. Who is this kid in the Kyle Singler jersey? Because it can’t be Kyle Singler. I refuse to believe it.
7:51 – I’m going to start calling Zoubek “Zangief.” It’s official.
7:52 – Big basket by Zangief.
7:53 – Zangief gets his fourth foul. Damn it! I’ve been entertaining myself by imagining him cursing at the referees in broken Russian.
7:54 – Side note: I live in a house with two other supposed-heterosexual males and I am on the couch watching this game alone.
8:11 – Zangief puts too much mustard on the ball and throws it into the backcourt. I’m imagining him cursing in Russian again.
8:17 – There’s a little less than five minutes left and one of two things is going to happen: Singler is going to become a Duke legend or he’s going to lose them the game.
8:18 – Singler has absolutely taken over this game. He’s been the best player on the floor, by a mile, all night. This is officially his game.
8:24 – Duke finally makes a “we want it more” play to force a jump ball. That was big.
8:26 – Singler travels. I think the pressure might be getting to him.
8:28 – Holy shit! Howard just nailed the layup in Zangief’s grill. I imagine Zangief screaming, “Idi na xuy husesos! Mne pohui!”
8:28 – I google’d Russian swear words.
8:29 – Duke up one, 49 seconds left. Duke ball. It’s gotta go to Singler. It’s just gotta. Coach K must know this.
8:30 – Singler bricks off the front of the rim. Yup, pressure got to him.
8:30 – Great rebound by Zangief, by the way. Too bad he lost it off his foot.
8:33 – And we’re back. Butler down one, 13.6 seconds left. Butler ball. Just realized Butler has no go-to guy.
8:34 – Zangief is guarding the inbound pass. He forces Butler to use its last time out. “Na kaleni, suka!”
8:35 – Hayward on the fadeaway jumper?! WHAT?! You have got to be kidding me.
8:35 – Great play by Zangief. He’s been great .
8:37 – The heave…oh…wow. That was close. If you didn’t like that game, you hate America.
8:38 – Zangief runs down the court screaming, “Pokazhi pizdu detka! Pokazhi pizdu detka! Pokazhi pizdu detka!”
