Baracket busted again! The Curse of the Obamabino continues!

The Curse of the Obamabino continues! Last year, Barry O's picks fell by the wayside. This year, same thing! His Baracket has been busted! The O-Man went out on a limb and picked a Final Four of Ohio State (a #1 seed), Duke (another #1), Kansas (still another #1), and Florida (a #2 seed, risky call there, Barry). But the O-Man Omen does not BOde well! Barry's teams are now the Final Forgotten!

Let's see what the DUmmies have to say about the Marx Madness, here in this THREAD, "Sunday's NCAA Tournament Thread (Elite Eight)" and this THREAD, "Does anyone really care about the UK UNC game?" and this THREAD, "Who is going to win today's game- the Wildcats or the Tarheels?"

So let us follow the Road to the DU Lounge, where the remarx are in Down-in-the-Paint Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who usually roots for the team with the fewest tattoos, is in the . . . [Barackets], of course!

Sunday's NCAA Tournament Thread

[Most DUmmies would rather watch the CCCP Tournament.]

Sunday's NCAA Tournament Thread (Elite Eight)

["Elite Eight"?? Isn't that rather, well, elitist??]

Winners go to the Final Four.

[Unfair! EVERYBODY should go to the Final Four!]

Sh*t, thanks. Had no idea the games started yet.

[Put down the bong pipe, DUde, and get to a televison.]

They're early on Sunday so 60 Minutes starts close to 7:00 Eastern Time. CBS doesn't care about its Saturday prime-time line-up. None of the networks do.

[D*MN them! Corporatist pigs!]

VCU off to a pretty solid start

[VCU?? They're not on Obama's bracket!]

it's worth losing a bracket, I think, to see an 11 seed make the final four


Kansas creeping back in it.

[Of course. They're a #1, and the main thing is, The One picked them to win it all, so they've GOT to win!]

Oh, My!

[Is that you, franksolich?]


[Baracketology Made Easy.]

Holy upset Batman!!!

[Barack, Choke, Jayhawk!]


[Barry is deeply saddened.]

Does anyone really care about the UK UNC game?

[The United Kingdom is playing?? I'll take North Carolina. Brits are more into soccer.]

all of the energy is done

[Don't worry. Obomber will get some of that Libyan oil.]

I have less than zero clue what you're talking about

[That's never stopped a DUmmie before.]

why isn't the winter sport of basketball over with by now?

[Climate change. Bush's fault.]

What's "VCU"?

[Viet Cong University?]

Virginia Commonwealth University.

[Obama's new favorite team. I mean, come on: "Common wealth"? Marx Madness, bay-bee!]

Who is going to win today's game- the Wildcats or the Tarheels?

[Look, if you put a wildcat up against a tarheel, who SHOULD win? Why, a wildcat would rip the tar right off that heel!]

Should DU pull for Paul Wellstone's alma mater or Jim Bunning's? I have no idea who's going to win but no progressive could possibly root for Kentucky.

[Jim Bunning, from Kentucky, is a red-state Rethuglican. Wellstone is a DUmmieland saint who, apparently, attended UNC. That means DUmmieland must now be pulling for UNC. They're all wearing DU-UNC caps.]

I'm so confused.

[The state of mind at DUmmieland State.]

At that point of the day I will be emotionally spent as my frenetic controlled chaos VCU Rams will have already played. And hopefully won.

[They did. It was frenetic kinetic action.]

So the Final Four is set: Kentucky v. UConn and VCU v. Butler

[Duke, Florida, Ohio State, Kansas? GONE! Barried! The Curse of the Obamabino continues!]

- - - - -

CORRECTION: Obama went even more chalk than I said, in that he picked Pittsburgh, not Florida. That makes him even more of a LOSER, since Pitt--how appropriate!--went out right away. Obama went with all four #1 seeds, and they're all out!

Gratz to VCU. Being a VA girl, I'm happy to see them as one of three double-digit seeded teams to oust the No. 1.
Five years ago my Alma Mater GMU did it. It's a lot to hope VCU can make it all the way, but they certainly have reason to be proud of themselves today.

Yes, please tell everyone what basketball team they are allowed to support.

Just another litmus test in lock-step land.

You must conform!!


These idiots make me retch.

I don't think anyone could have predicted the teams that got into the Final Four.

Both Wisconsin teams (UW and Marquette) went down in ignominious defeat in the Sweet Sixteen so I'm rooting for UConn for no other reason than my brother-in-law is an alumni.

Out of the millions of brackets at ESPN, only TWO picked the Final Four correctly.

Sheer luck on display....
