Welcome back, though the FA Cup semis (nae exactly raging, MOAR LIEK a quarter-chubb, just enough to make you glad you wore jeans).
As such, ALL the Prem action on Saturday is in the 10:00 window (Daylight Savings Times are back in alignment). Palace and Newcastle are the featured match (NBCSN),
Yes, I have no fucks to give about this year's Flacco Eight. What a wretched, boring, vanilla-ass torneo. But the big leagues in Europe and Sudamerica are back, by God. So let us enjoy some proper Lesser Footy.
Perhaps you wish to sleep in. The Premiership has you covered, starting with
Pardon me, but I have nothing to say!
#6(E) Maryland (+3, +135) v. #3(E) LSU (12:10, CBS)
Well, two sides I didn't expect to do anything at all. Now one will make the Powdered Donut Round. I don't much care for that. Full national game, so have a book ready.
#7(MW) Wofford (+5,
Fortunately, I went to bed at around 11 EST, and didn't wait up to see confirmation that my brackets made ded. To the games! I will just preview all since the Friday night thread goes up late.
#10(S) Iowa (+4.5, +178) v. #7(S) Cincinnati (12:15, CBS)
Perhaps JV Cincy is a tad
Huzzah for life distractions!
#10(E) Minnesota (+5.5, +210) v. #7(E) Louisville (12:15, CBS)
Don't bet the over/under on "Minute Man" Pitino crowd shots. You don't want to die of liver failure this early in the tourney.
#14(E) Yale (+6.5, +250) v. #3(E) LSU (12:40, truTV)
Oh, the taeks about these fine, upstanding, future white
This weekend, we are truly all Anteaters. Mad props for you ladies making the NC State "wolf sign" to make me feel sightly less shitty about the NIT. Spam, spam, glorious SPAM!
3) The “Dueling Banjos” Regional (i.e., South)
Who Can Reasonably Win? Yes, Wahoowa was the first 1 seed in EVAR
Welcome to this year's edition of me spouting off my mouth recklessly and stupidly. Due to the generosity of the #ContentFairy (no ofence), we are smushing these into two entries this season. Yes, the play-in games are covered here to keep you on-schedule.
Also yes, I fucking know that Eastern Washington
Yes, that obnoxious bleating Geordie will be creaming his knickers all over Real and Barca this afternoon (2:45 EST, BeIn). Yet another el Clasico, coming off the heels of a dull as dishwater Copa tie mid-week. Same location, even.
But my blood is up, yet again, for the Merseyside Derby (Sunday,
Jared Goff is liquid shit. The Baby Buster moniker is now unfair to Mr. Bluth.
But the hidden villain here is Andy Reid. How in the name of Sweet Jeebus Tittyfuck did he not beat those dickass P*ts? They have NOTHING. You had the NFL's most valuable player, and somehow didn't
Fuck it, I hate everything and since RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!! lucked out, there will be no Narrative Owl. So I guess I have to watch in two weeks, but BLECH.
Thanks to BLEERGH, Greg the Leg, and a pretty great defensive gameplan - Los Angeles will represent the NFC in the Superb
For your non-reading, non-pleasure - while you no doubt enjoy the Huddersfield/City and Spurs/Mighty Whitey double bill on NBCSN:
Son of Spam
NFC: Rams over the Saints because I'm an unabashed homer (mmmm...beer...) and the Gumbo offense has been kinda mediocre for a while. Let's say 106-20.
AFC: Chiefs beat the Evil Empire by 10,
After a season chock-full of entropy, the Divisional Round returned us to normalcy. #1 v. #2, both AFC and NFC.
By the time one had made Q1's K-Cup of coffee...the early match was pretty much in the barn. Clippers du Merde were playing their second consecutive "10 am body clock" game,
