I missed the NCAA selection show on Sunday because I was over at la_poubelle's excellent cookout. (BTW, if I spoke to you on the phone Sunday night and I wasn't making a whole lot of sense, it's because the sangria sneaked up on me and please forgive me and disregard anything stupid I said and smack me hard for being a dumbass next time you see me.) I believe this means I missed sportscasters saying good things about Vandy for once. So I was trying to get caught up later that evening and ended up calling my mother going "Did Vandy really get a six seed?!" Not in my wildest dreams was Vandy getting a six seed this year. And after winning the SEC tournament, the Lady 'Dores got a two seed on the women's side. Though I think they're in the same damn bracket with Tennessee. Hate Tennessee.
Unfortunately, a glance at ESPN's Daily Quickie tells me that in the realm of upsets, "the trendy thing seems to be hopping on the Western Michigan (11) bandwagon." Who's Western Michigan supposed to upset? Three guesses and the first two don't count. *Cartman voice* Ah hate you guys. Ah hate you guys so very much.
But Vandy will prevail and I need to fill out my bracket before the play-in game at 7 pm tonight (also known as "we're so embarrassed that we're only going to let one of these nobodies in the field of 64", or "Who Wants to Be Slaughtered by Kentucky?"). Please tell me I'm not the only one doing this.
