Smell That? That’s Sweaty Basketball in Bars During the Workday!

NCAA Tournament

Thrusday is almost upon us. And with that is the NCAA Tournament.

Only in recent years have I gotten excited about this. My favorite part? Not the games – but the media attention. When a sportswriter has to come up with as many adjectives for “defeat” as possible. Sadly, my work only consists of 4 people – so a “bracket” doesn’t really make sense. But I watch… And totally dig what CBS Sportsline did last year – you could watch the games leading up to – I think – the Sweet Sixteen free online. There was even a “boss” button that would flip it to a spreadsheet.

Let’s go Cinderella – For you, Adam – I’m going with Miami (Ohio) – kick those jerks from Oregon!

After the jump – a list compiled from last year of adjectives heard on morning radio…
