NCAA Bracket

Posted by Quasar on Monday, March 14, 2011

If anyone's interested, I set up an NCAA Bracket a few years back that we ran at Excelsiornews. I changed the name of the group to Corona, but it seems the orignal url is kind of stuck, so it's still called excelsiornews. Anyway, here's the link (it's supposed to be anyway): http://excelsiornews.mayhem.cbssports.com/e

I honestly thought I was going to have a heart attack there during the last minute and overtime.

She's not teething yet, as far as we can tell. She's almost seven months old, so it should start soon.

I read your post as the above. I found it amusing that my interpretation has you "guessing" her age. I never understood why parents always gave their child's age in months until they were something like 5 years old. Where is the ethical code that tells us we can't start referring to our children's age in years until a certain point in their life?

For the record, I will be 503 months old on Tuesday.

I get the months things up to 3 years old, because the first year you'd keep saying they were zero years old, and 1's almost as pointless. 2 would make sense as a starting point, but parents are probably always counting down their time until they're through the terrible 2's, so the months thing likely continued on as a way of doing that.

 People actually do that into the 2's? I guess I don't know enough parents of toddlers, but I've never heard anyone say "Oh, my son is 28 months old." If I do, I'll post about it immediately in the current annoyances thread, rest assured.

I figure once Jubboiter is nine months old, I'll start telling people she's nearly a year old. Once we get to the one-year point, I'll never look back. The month-by-month count can go right to Hell.

One thing I don't plan to do is continue referring to Jubboiter as "my baby." It chaps my ass when I see parents doing that.

A lot of my former high school classmates refer to their children as their "babies" well up into the kids' teens. "My baby's playing her first softball game today!" "My baby's testing for his license today! Pray for him! Pray for me!"

What, no praying for the softball game?

You're only allowed to pray for overhand-throwing games.

Before you ask:

Those who pray count sidearm and submarine pitchers as overhanders. Because FUCK SOFTBALL.

 Does Handball count as an overhand-throwing game?  Can we pray for that?

 True story: I went to the very first team practice for the one handball team in the state of Minnesota last October. It took two hours of handball to turn what had been a minor back injury to that point into a bulging disk (shut. up.) and a partially ruptured disk in my lower back. 

That sport is the devil. THE DEVIL!

We may be speaking of different handballs. I'm referring to the Olympic sport that's played with a net.

We're speaking of the same thing. We're still not speaking of a sport. Olympic inclusion isn't proper validation. It used to be, but then they started including poodle clipping and decided to exclude wrestling.

I can't trust you anymore, Olympics.

I thought handball was played on a court with two goals. Volleyball is the one with the net.

Touche. Though in my defense it's absolutely a sport and the goals have nettting within them. Like a soccer or hockey net!

I was going to respond with another "handball" video from Christmas Vacation, but the old laziness overwhelmed me.
