No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

It’s tourney time, baby!

by @ 15:46. Filed under Sports.

I still have to finish off my bracket, but there’s a couple of housekeeping items:

– First off, we got the play-in game tonight between Winthrop and Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The winner gets to be sacrificed on Friday by Duke. Take Arkansas-Pine Bluff to be the first team out.

– Second, it’s time to start the annual “Which #1 seed will be knocked out first?” poll. Since we’ve never had a #16 knock off a #1, you’ll most-likely have until Saturday to actually get your choice in. While I may or may not remember to pause the poll while a #1 is playing, I will throw out any guesses entered while a #1 team is playing.

Which #1 seed will be the first out of the NCAA tourney?

I’ll be back with the Bouncing Mozzarella bracket Thursday morning – I don’t want you thieves to steal my bracket and go the other way.

Roll bloat – Cuban influence

I’m at a bit of a loss for words, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that Cubachi is a great addition to the roll and feed reader, and that you should do the same.

Give them an inch, they’ll take you a mile

Mark Tapscott has this morning’s episode of Rank Hypocrisy. Paraphrasing Mark:

  • In 2005, due to a transcription error by the Senate secretary on a single item, the House passed a debt-ceiling-raising bill that was slightly different than the version that passed the Senate. The Senate clerk, realizing the error after the House passed it, changed the item, presented it to the presiding officers, who both signed it and sent it to President Bush, who proceeded to sign it.
  • Public Citizen filed suit in an attempt to annul the law (ultimately unsuccessful), saying that it violated the requirement that identitcal version of a bill be passed by both Houses of Congress before it becomes law.
  • Joining Public Citizen with amicus briefs – Nancy Pelosi, Louise Slaughter and Henry Waxman.

Nothing more needs to be said.
