Ha, yep! Wings, Beers for other(not old enough to drink here in the USA), and some other stuff. Was a good time. Nothing better then hanging out, watching sports, eating, and well for everyone else drinking. My best friend order 11 beers during the time we were there(the big glasses). His bill alone was 60+ for himself. LOL

I would say you're lucky too to open a fridge and have one more beer left. Nothing better then that. Enjoy it!

All the weak GM's will buy into the "athleticism" knock (which is BS, the world is full of high flyers that can't crack a D-league squad), and a team like SA will grab up, and this kid will fill it up for 15 years in the NBA and make a great living as a NIGHTMARE for opposing teams.
My guess is that he doesn't get past Utah... for reasons obvious... or not.

I was 3 off on my guess

But I wasn't impressed with that team, you're likely right.

Paying close attention to the top 5-10+ prospects in this tournament.

I put this in the draft thread, but Kemba Walker with 18 points (on 11 shots), 12 assists and 8 rebounds. Very nice start to the tourney for him. When all's said and done, he may end up being our draft pick.

St. John's vs. Gonzaga should be a really good game... coming up next on TSN (and CBS?)

Sentimentally going for Gonzaga, with their 2 big Canadians, but it's going to be hard to beat a team from the East, where competition is tougher - it makes it harder to judge.

I have St.John's going all the way to the Elite 8, so despite the Canadian content on Gonzaga, I gotta root for the Storm.

At this point he's still more of a score-first PG, but I think he could find the happy medium, between being a scoring guard and a distributor.

Like I said in the draft thread, some teams may shy away from him, based on his measurements, but BC hasn't shied away from smaller PGs.

I took Gonzaga for a few reason.

1. DEEP team
2. St John isn't good away from home.
3. This game is being played on the West Coast. I know it doesn't seem like a huge thing but that favors Gonzaga over St John.

I would like to see St John win but I just didn't like this match up for them.

Yeah, I'm kind of glad I didn't fill out a bracket this year, because then you just cheer for your picks. Now I'm just cheering for good games, and some upsets.

I get a chance to watch a lot of Zags games here out West, and they've been destroying teams, but the competition is pretty easy, so it made it really hard to pick.

St John's has had some massive wins this year, and I thought that they'd step it up in the tourney, when the heat is on.

Still a lot of game left, but Zags' size is dominating in this one so far.

Sacre has some stone hands. He's gotta play better than that if he's reppin' van city.

Uhhhh Ohhhh... barring a HUGE comeback, it looks like your bracket may be busted.

Two Canadians playing in the early morning game for Texas (vs. Oakland)

Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph.

Thompson with a good start so far.

I've never really watched Thompson play before.

He's a beast. Kind of built like Elton Brand.

I am both saddened and not surprised that my Red Storm are out. We kinda struggled the last little bit but I thought we'd be better with a heavy Senior line up.

Oh well, cheering for Purdue (sorry R+B) and BYU (go Jimmer) and even the SDSU
