Will that shoulder be healed enough to audition for next years Bloggers On Ice roadshow?
ETA: BTW I measured the heights of both of my daughters last night. My 7.5 year old daughter is 19 inches shorter than me. I’m 6’2″. Hoo boy.
Is futon kitteh watching the game with you?
Saw this linked to on a GOS diary:
The crazies are turning on each other.
Does Lily get dressed up for hoops like she did for football?
Called my rep. again. David Dreier (R, CA-26), formerly Rules Committee chair, responsible for all the deem and pass bills that were shoved down our throats over the last decade. He had the temerity to go whining (whining! I tell you! like a bloody fool concern troll!) about the Rules used to pass the bill in the house.
Spoke earlier this week with his field rep; called his DC office to again offer my wholehearted support for a bill that I know he’ll vote against.
Best weekend of the year for hoops junkies; some good ball played yesterday all around. I may OD on it by tonight, talking in my sleep about “sweet little kisses off the glass”, but I’ll be ready for tomorrow somehow.
Best thing? After 4 days of hoops, HCR will pass on Sunday and the Right can commence Operation Shitfit.
Syracuse lost yet?
vandy, marquette and murray state completely f’d my bracket. i had my alma mater OU to loosing in the first round (its a liberal arts school and i hate it when they try to do division one sports) but didn’t care too much about g’town as i had them out in the next round anyway.
Watching some hoops, myself.
Do you think the whitey tape is going to show up right before the health care vote on Sunday?
I like how my crazy-ass bracket is scoring. I’m 6 for 16, but that’s good enough for 46th place!

I’m betting on Orly finally releasing Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate. I think she may be a closet liberal, because that is the only reason I can think of why she hasn’t made it public yet.
How in the hell did Obama know Murray St would upset Vandy?
Hey, turns out Sean Hannity might be bilking veterans and their kids through his bullshit Freedom Alliance charity:
…thinking about Hannity getting caught doing something like this literally makes me hard.
Hey, we’re talking about a guy who was saavy enough to put a birth announcement in a Honolulu newspaper just days after he was born. Bracketology ain’t nuthin’ but a thang for him.
Putterin around in the kitchen.
I can’t wait to wake up on Monday to my new socialist medicine overlords!
Yesterday’s games were so good to me and my bracket. Nowhere to go but down. Fast.
Do you really think the a goes before the e in Judean? I would’ve thought the reverse. But I’m no Hebrew scholar.
Hannity and Palin, two peas in a pod. Fucking grifters.

@jeffreyw: Thanks. I haven’t eaten since 6:30 am.
But please accept my compliments on all of your excellent food photos. You have a good eye for composition. Kudos.
It could be Judaean or Judean, but not Judaen. Needs another “a.”
@jeffreyw: Delicious. What’s that on the toast? Looks like devilled kidneys, but I’m sure it’s not. . .
@The Grand Panjandrum: My pleasure, sir. Thank you.
@Fergus Wooster: Click the link under the pic and I’ll tell ya all about it :)
Both Minnesota and Xavier are two of the worst teams I’ve seen this year. From their play here, neither deserve to be in the tourny and whoever wins will be quickly ousted.

It’s a beautiful day outside, and I just read this story which made me happy.
I want to be a wingnut and find some Unconstitutional Republican laws need repealed. (other than mccain-feingold)
Can someone cite the Laws that the Republicans used deem and pass “demon pass” to enact?
@jeffreyw: Very nice. Sounds like something the wife might like. . . I’ll have to try it out.
@ Mike Kay
Our President has powers beyond the ordinary man. Didn’t you know?
If ever there was a time…

-Don’t forget about the Hamsherites.
Stopped by Congressman Capuano’s Cambridge office today, to say that as a voter, Senate primary campaign contributor, and former fan of the Congressman I was really upset that he wan’t a strong supporter of the health care bill. The person behind the desk – who was fielding about one call per minute – was happy to hear from a bill supporter, but didn’t promise his support. On the other hand, when I said how upset I was that he was against the bill, she said that he wasn’t against the bill “but had some concerns about the process”. So maybe he won’t go full metal asshole on this one.
The Big East finally wins a game easily.

Just when you though wingnuts couldn’t get any more cynical and depraved.
The loyal opposition/snark
I am sure now with Citizens United the wingnut wurlizer will run round the clock on concentrated high performance pixie dust, with Malkin head steam afterburners.
@General Egali Tarian Stuck: What this means is we let them bring the amendments up for vote (and failure), and then in November, run commercials saying “Richard Burr voted for the Cornhusker Kickback and Louisiana Purchase.”
[insert standard disclaimer of how Democrats can’t strategize their way out of a paper bag here]
Yes, the competition is intense this year …
What? That’s what *I* mean by March Madness!
Best Headline Typo Ever.
Just read the reputedly-Democratic-authored ‘doc fix memo‘ and I have to say, if someone on the Democrats’ side did write this memo, it’s the cunningest trap the Republicans have fallen for in a very long time. And if it’s a Republican fake-out, well, Michael Steele is the ‘moran’ that just keeps giving.

Look upon my works, and fear me.
Over 4.4 million people submitted brackets to ESPN’s contest. Less than 60 went 16-for-16 yesterday.
I went 11-for-16 yesterday, and I am 5-for-7 so far today.
