Yes, we have reached the end.  No lovable underdog, everyone is cheering for the flat track bully.  But a worthy champion they would be, so hopefully they will finish the job in fine fashion this evening.  With no further ado…

#3(W) Michigan (+7, +270) v. #1(E) Villanova (9:20, TBS)

Make no bones about it, this line tells the story of a Nova side that has the momentum of a runaway freight train (h/t Friends of Monty Burns FOAR Governor), as Michigan has been pretty ruthless against non-Houston opponents.  Both sides are fairly perimeter oriented, and play very good defense.  One could call them evenly matched, except that the Wildcats have more ways to score, and more options on the floor.  Beilein’s Wolverines, like all Beilein sides, chuck up way too many threes, and rely to an unhealthy extent on the hideous Mo Wagner.  That said – this is no fait accompli – there’s a very realistic shot that UM will cut down the nets at the end of our evening.  Let’s just hope not.  Jesuit power, one last time!

It’s a Mets game; they probably both got injured on the play.

Now onto a very important playoff-making game between Ice Rams and Ice Broncos.

Ice Rams currently up 2-1 about halfway thru the game.

Also, I am kinda buzzed and Trump is a dangerous lunatic, so some things are eternal.

Gotta say, with all the “anything can happen” going on this tourney, Villanova was fucking dominant and was absolutely not gonna be denied. I didn’t (totally) mind the whitey-fellating done by the announcers since dude was the truth tonight. Great team and a great season-long performance.

Plus I came (heh) in 2nd in my own pool and will profit a little over $100. BEER FOR EVERYONE HERE! (As usual, I am alone)

Speaking of daggers, I just ordered this book for my father’s birthday.

And yes, I am going to try to read it before wrapping it.

Every time Mark Emmert speaks, I hear Elmo’s voice.

Horatio Cornblower

Emmert is the fucking worst. Talk about a guy who defines “failing up”, (besides me); he was a goddamn joke at UCONN, (https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2013/4/3/4176742/mark-emmert-ncaa-president-usa-today), and apparently didn’t do much better at LSU. Every time I see him talk I’m surprised his forked tongue doesn’t dart out and nail a passing fly.

Seriously, fuck Mark Emmert.

I had dinner with a couple of neighbors in their nineties on Friday and I just remembered because I’m watching Babylon Berlin (good Netflix series, BTW) that we talked about how they were old enough to remember when people died from getting syphilis. It seems amazing sometimes how 50 years from now some kid is going to look at, say, chemotherapy the way we look at bloodletting or the crazy, bad “treatment” they had for the fucking clap before the war.

I had to nearly strangle mine on his walk tonight to get him to let go of some dead animal bone he hauled out of the woods.

Me: WE FEED YOU!!! YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THAT’S BEEN AND IT’S GOING TO LACERATE YOUR THROAT!!!!

Dog: Fuck it, I’m gonna chew it to splinters and swallow it anyway

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Mine is pretty good about that now, but it has taken a few years to get train to not eat and/or roll in old dead carcasses. The ones I get at the store seem like wildebeest or something, or a LARGE cow. Bone splinter makes me thing huuummmm, how about a $6,000 surgery.

Horatio Cornblower

Mine is just over 2 years old and has gotten better but if there’s anything left on the bone he will hold on like grim death. I’m not even sure what this bone was; might have been some kind of fish.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

What kind of dog? Two is still in puppy mode.

A friend husky found an elk bone when we were snowshoeing on about eight feet of snow. That was a challenge to get it from him.

That first tequila went down way too easily.

Let’s see if the second puts up more of a fight…

/Horatio is never heard from again

Horatio Cornblower

Michigan announcers calling for a carry every time the Eyetalian kid has the ball. I think you have to actually be moving for it to be a carry, and every replay they show has him with his pivot foot still firmly planted.

“Margin of error here for Michigan is slim”
