Round of Reubens

This Ruben should have just stayed in and watched Skinamax.The Maryland basketball championship drive stalled this weekend. The Terps fell to some white dudes from Butler that may have had a little help from the referees. At least on the charge call on D.J. Strawberry at the end. The result of the first week is that my brackets are in flames. There is no real underdog this year, UNLV is the lowest seeded team to advance with a 7-seed. I guess it was a bad year to take Long Beach State to the Elite 8 and Texas/Louisville aren't going to make the runs I thought they were.

One of the main questions this spring with the football team is whether Adam Bednarik can return and ifso can he get those guns on the field? The Charleston Gazette catches up with the former starting QB, now third string and speculates where he would go if he changed positions. The conclusion from the Gazette is wide receiver. That would not make a lot of sense considering the size and speed of Bednarik, but his shoulder problems could preclude the move to TE which would seem more appropriate. The Gazette believes that a move to defense is out due to the stress involved in trying to learn that you are trying to keep people from scoring instead of trying to score.

WVU women have a rematch tonight versus LSU in the NCAA tournament. The two teams played in the first game of the season with LSU sqeaking out a 64-25 win. The 11th seeded Mountaineers have already defeated Xavier in the tournament and another win would probably ruin the majority of the five women's brackets in existence (currently all being played by female gym teachers in the mid-west having fem-mullets and carrying a whistle at all times). The team has rebounded well this season after losing Meg Bulger for the second straight year with the same ACL injury. Meg is currently rehabbing both the knee and her wet hair at Kegler's.

WVU plays NC State in the NIT on Tuesday in a 9 pm game. This game is also a rematch from earlier in the season, WVU won in Charleston 71-60 earlier in the year. The winner goes to Madison Square Garden for the final four. The loser is somewhere around the 74th best team in the nation.

Texas, Wisconsin, and Louisville each had a hand in ruining my brackets. I guess maybe taking Purdue to the round of 8 to play Wisconsin was not a good idea.

I do like to see celebrities in Keglers. Most famous people who sit down next to ya are not as attractive, and rarely play with hairs as wet as those.

So who is leading in this heated bracket competition?

Just wondering, that's all...

You'd better hope Florida holds up better than that picture in you've embedded if you think you're going to win.

The only reuben left that I can think of is actually a ruben. Peter paul. But he's Phlegmish.
