It is Final Four weekend. And while there are many storylines, there is just one overarching theme: Good vs. Evil. Bracket Giants vs. Bracket Busters. David vs. Goliath. The Dark Side vs. the Force. <best Darth voice> Brad Stevens, I am your mother. I am 28, but he is like 15, so I guess that is sort of possible? Let’s move on for now. In addition to Final Four weekend, do you know what today is? It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday. Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend. And here at CDTF, we totally are.
On one side of the bracket, we have giant evil overlords Kentucky (#4) and Connecticut (#3); on the other, we have surprising midget heroes in Butler (#8) and Virginia Commonwealth (#11).
Butler (#8) vs. VCU (#11): Saturday at 6:09 p.m. on CBS
UConn (#3) vs. Kentucky (#4): Saturday at 8:49 p.m. on CBS
Ugh, and then there is UConn and Kentucky. Jim Calhoun, a dirty old man who reminds me of Al Bundy, was recently suspended for major violations at Connecticut. And with John Calipari at the helm, it might be a good thing if Kentucky wins – because then we will have two winners for 2011, after it gets vacated in a few years. Sharing is caring, right? Neither coach cares gives a damn about academics, but both make a mockery of the recruitment process. They are gross, the equivalent of coaching chlamydia. Which is why the Dark Side MUST be defeated this weekend.
Just remember, no matter who wins: Tomorrow is Saturday, And Sunday comes afterwards, I don’t want this weekend to end. In Brad Stevens’ spectacles and Shaka’s smarts, we trust.
