    I might put a small token on the Oregon Ducks this year. I know it would probably end up as a donation but . .. you never know . . . ;)

    The bruins won and gonzaga was upset by byu, so ucla should be moving up to #3 in the nation :tup:

    Weirdly they will still be #3 in the Pac-12 as well, since that's where all their losses are :lol:

    Duck's just swept the bay area . . . on our way to Oregon State for the last regular season game. The Pac-12 tournament should be very interesting this year.

    GO DUCKS!!!

    Oregon defeats Arizona State 80-57. On to the semi-finals . . . :argh:

    Looks like we are going to play Cal since they just beat Utah.

    Ucla just squeaked by their crosstown rivals the trojans, hopefully it was a wake-up call because they will have their hands full playing arizona tomorrow. If they both win tomorrow, the tourney championship will be the ultimate tiebreaker for the bruins and ducks for this season. Unless they meet in the show that is :)

    Well . . . maybe not. What happened @grokit ? :huh: I was looking forward to that rubber match . . . :(

    Edit: I just watched the highlights from the game and AZ was on fire . . . I'm not sure we could have beaten them from what I saw. Hopefully they will be a little more tired tonight.

    I think the pac-12 is the strongest conference in ncaa div 1 men's basketball, and that arizona, oregon and ucla can all beat each other in any given game. It was arizona's turn to win last night, as ucla won last time they beat ucla the time before. Same with the ducks, we beat them last time so we would've probably lost to them last night as well. Ball's thumb injury played a big part but so did lauri markkanen, who was on fire last night. Hopefully ball will heal quickly, and the bruins won't see either team again until the ncaa finals :)!

    Geeeeeeeeze . . . I can't believe Boucher tore his ACL against Cal and played on it. Not only did that fuck up our championship game with AZ last night but it has serious ramifications for the big dance . . . fuck it all, now I have no football team and a seriously wounded basketball team. What the fuck is left?

    Well I guess we still got the cheerleaders . . . ;)

    Rock Chalk Jayhawk up in this house. This is by far my absolute favorite time of the year. I'm not sure there's a busier sporting event at least not in the first 2 days. It's Total Madness Baby. As a very annoying commentator says.

    ...many times.... throughout the years I've watched...I've turned off the sound...very few announcers actually add anything ...that you can't see with your own eyes..

    I'm the opposite as I watch most live sports via low-def streaming, and the announcers are how I stay engaged in the game/match/race/fight/etc. I have it displayed on a pretty nice tv but am visually focused on other things like the laptop browser screen in front of me most of the time. I usually do watch the ~5% of a given contest that actually contributes to the outcome, and it's easy to determine when to actually pay visual attention by the audio cues. So for me it's like old-time sports radio with an optional visual bonus.

    Chick hearn and vin scully stick out over all others for me big-time :tup:

    I grew up with my dad listening to Harry Kalas (at his best with Richie Ashburn). I was lucky.

    And Vin Scully, man. Say no more. I lived in AZ for a while and enjoyed listening to Dodgers games on the radio. Vin carried the broadcasts on his own, game after game. Never a dull moment on those hot Tucson evenings (especially at the end of the year in '91 when they were chasing down the Braves), sweating Coors can (or cans) in my hand. Ah but I was younger then. Much older than that now.
