PROTEST PLAYOFF '07: Final Four

New, 5 comments

2007-4

16 DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF!

Words fail me.

I seem to remember some accusations of homer-ism from other fan bases the first two weeks I did this, when K-State won it all both times.

Well, I think it's safe to say my objectivity is no longer in question. Allowing The Team That Shall Not Be Named to advance to the championship game makes me unimpeachable, I dare say.

You would think that USC, a 41-0 winner over the real-life defending national champion, would be able to take care of business against Chesty McWino and the boys, but I thought Oklahoma would cream them and they didn't, so what the hell do I know? Besides, the Fat Man's Gang is technically the high seed and thus the favorite. The entire world's gone mad, I tell you.

I now know how Dr. Frankenstein felt. I have seen my child, the work of my own hands, rise and become a monster, terrorizing the populace. And I feel great shame, indeed.
