Blind Item #8

This bracket bust of a team had an early exit. A very early exit. I wonder if it has anything to do with their star player staying out late the night before the game with his soon to be signed agent and the agent's female friends who spent some alone time with the future NBA pick. The drinking probably didn't help. Apparently the missed curfew violation was overlooked too.

Someone from Duke? Parker?

sandybrook said...

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Finally Enty throws Uncle Sandybrook a bone at the 230 blind and he's not here for it.

Brian Boitano
Flyers
No idea

Kno Won Uno said...

A March Madness Blind. No thanks, I'm good.

sandybrook said...

Wrong sport Kristin. There is no team in ice skating. :(

CocoaBeachBunny said...

You gonna be watching this week, Sandy?

sandybrook said...

I'm leading my bracket pool and in ESPN that same bracket is in the top .1% of all their entries (which means 5989).

sandybrook said...

Yes Cocoa I will be.

Count Jerkula said...

Absolutely Duke and Parker. Sports shows the next day saying that if that is Parker's A-game, he needs another year in school.

If he screws up that bad when trying to showcase himself for the draft, whats he going to be like when he gets a fat contract and is traveling the country night in and night out, playing on a horrible team?

CocoaBeachBunny said...

I'll be in Anaheim watching Arizona and San Diego, and Baylor and Wisconsin. Then whoever on Saturday.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Who is this Jabba The Duke? Is he the Brian Boitano of college basketball?

sandybrook said...

That ought to be fun. San Diego should bring in a lot of their fans and so should Arizona.

Sass71 said...

Good job Cocoa!!

sandybrook said...

Uh not really Kristin he didn't win anything and disappeared all game long. Unlike Mr. Boitano.

sugarbread maker said...

My pick..Iowa State is still in it.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Count! I thought you said college basketball is boring as shit!

I wish I knew, Kristin. I'm just a savant. :)

sandybrook said...

Good luck Sugarbread but I need them to lose their next game, sorry.:(

Kloie said...

Not Michigan - go blue!

sandybrook said...

Sorry Kloie I need them to lose too. :(

Count Jerkula said...

@Cocoa: I do hate college BB. I was in my car for 8hrs on Friday, listening to sports talk, and that was what they were mostly talking about.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

At least you had cigarettes then, Count? ;-)

Count Jerkula said...

2 packs with me in the truck when I head out for deliveries. I aint payin $13/pk in NY.

Nolesgirl said...

MUCH prefer NCAA Football, and my team is not a bball contender, so I'll pull for the Gators to represent my state. Go Gaturzzz!

Katie said...

To our readers abroad: March Madness is a college basketball tournament, it all happens in march. It's pretty intense and there's lots of games everyday.
Many people who follow the games write their brackets guessing how the matches will end and which universities will be on the Final Four.

Violet said...

@runswithscissors thanks for the explanation. I thought I had entered some weird alternative universe although I am still none the wiser what all this brackets stuff means. Give me some premiership football with 3 points for a win and a bit of goal difference and I'm sorted. Go Liverpool!

Becca Parker said...

Parker is a Mormon. So he's really getting it on & dumping his upbringing!

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@Violet, I'm American and I still don't get it, but I think it goes something like this.

Following the preliminary group stages, the evening gown stage, and the final lightening death match, one team will triumph. The school that wins the Mad March pageant sash takes over the presidency for the next 5 years. The losing teams are sent to Cleveland. God bless the USA.

Did I get it right, Count? Sandy?

Flicknik said...

It's Wiggins from Kansas NOT Parker from Duke.

Violet said...

@Kristin. Thanks. Perfect sense.I can sleep easy now.

Rosso said...

No idea about basketball but Jay Z for the agent taking the player out? He's setting up a sports agency or already has done.

JoElla said...

All I know is, my Stepdaddy is CRUSHED that Duke got their asses handed to them.

Me being evol, totally laughed my ass off!

s.breezy29 said...

This is probably Jay-z trying to sign whoever to his sports management company

Vera L- said...

--Brian Boitano
Flyers

sandybrook said...

Sherry said...

I love it when Duke looses although I do like Coach K. just the students can be little shits because I'm a Carolina fan. Miss Coach Dean. He was amazing as was Jimmy V.

cocokate said...

@Kristin now that is funny, right there!!!

TLP said...

It's Wiggins. I don't see Coach K ignoring a curfew violation. He wouldn't announce it but he'd deal with it. Plus they're basically joined at the hip when they travel during the Tournament
