  1. That is a nice barn. Kansas falls to TCU is the Big 12 quarters. The worst thing about the arena is that the only thing that fills it up seems to be high school basketball (which makes no sense). But it might be the best in the area - until 5/3 Arena gets renovated.
  2. What Grinds Your Gears...

    I bought two tickets for each night of this year's First Four when they went on sale (January?). When I asked people if they wanted to go, they said wait until it got closer. In the past week I've asked everyone again and now everyone's busy, so now no one go and I have to sell my tickets. I hate my generation so :censored:ing much.
  3. NKU was allowed to play in the Horizon League Tournament last year, but not the NCAA Tournament. Their old conference, the Atlantic-Sun allowed them to do the same.
  4. The Horizon League tournament this year is absolutely bananas. The first FIVE game of the tournament had the worse seed winning, with semifinal matchups featuring the 4 vs. 9 & 6 vs. 10. The best seed remaining? My alma mater, Northern Kentucky University. In their first year eligible for the NCAA Tournament, the Norse are now one win away from the making the Tournament. I interned in the athletic department in their first D-1 year and never dreamed it be this short of a time before they were within one game of the tournament. !
  5. What Grinds Your Gears...

    3+ years ago, when FS1 was launching their first Jay and Dan show, I kept hearing "Why is Andy Roddick talking football?" when they brought him on as part of a panel. Yesterday I stumble upon Colin Cowherd/Jason Whitlock (I have no idea why I kept this on) discussing the Lakers with Cris Carter? And I feel like people are now ok with it. Same sort of thing with Shannon Sharpe. Why is it ok for football players to talk about every other sport, yet no other athlete is allowed to talk about football?

    I keep hearing the same 5-10 songs from the Madden 17 soundtrack on what seems like every other promo on television. It started with a few for every new Fall ABC show promo. But now they're popping up on ESPN, FOX's World Series coverage, and CBS's football coverage. I've never seen anything like it.
  7. (this is the largest picture I could find of my old CCSLC NAHL logo I created almost ten years ago) Should I be upset? Happy? Proud? Are they really that similar? Does the name just lend itself to this design?
  8. Please Explain The Internet To Me

    So far, we don't know why it's funny, but it is funny? What the hell does "Dicks out for Harambe" mean?
  9. Apparently, last night, my old High School had a football game and one of the students dressed up as the, now infamous, gorilla that was shot and killed at the Cincinnati zoo months ago. Three months later, why is this obsession still present? Why is it considered hilarious now, and why was it ever so supposedly goddamn funny? All I want is for someone to seriously explain this to me, since I'm so out of touch with my own generation.
  10. What Floats your Boat?

    Last night I checked a Draft Kings account from 3 years ago and found that I had $13. Entered an NBA contest and won $125. This morning I went back into my Twin Spires account (haven't bet since last year's Belmont Stakes). I made about $60 in bets on the Derby. I boxed a $1.50 Trifecta with Gun Runner, Nyquist and Exaggerator, and won $121. About an hour after making this bet in the afternoon, I placed essentially the same bet: a $1 trifecta with Nyquist, Exaggerator, and Gun Runner. Won $85! No idea why I made almost the same bet twice. Buying a lottery ticket tonight.
  11. This year I said Patrick Rodgers was dark horse to win the Masters. He wasn't even in the field.
  12. THE Video Game Thread

    Just pre-ordered OOTP 17 for Tuesday. Trying to get a good basketball sim as well. Does anyone have any experience with Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball? Is it good? I'm probably going to wait a few months anyway and see if I can save a few dollars.

    After not looking like I would find enough people this year, tings are coming together for my "Draw Team" + the spread Bracket Pool this year. Good times. AND, after like 6 hours of tinkering, I was able to automate the process of keeping up with it this year by finally finding the right conditional formatting in Excel.

    I tried to do a basketball team over the summer and the same thing happened. I ended up paying a crapload of money and we had three people show up and pay. Although, speaking of kickball, if you're back in Cincinnati....
