Mortal Lock Week 1 – The Punishments

Tomorrow sees both Squire and I staring agony in the face. The punishments for the first week of our Mortal Lock picks has been set. I am afraid dear reader, very afraid.

Squire had to be a big man and took Zaga earlier in the week. At the time Squire didn’t know who Zaga would be playing. Squire was bold enough to take them on the spread. Tomorrow Gonzaga takes on Seaton Hall. If Zaga can’t cover the spread Squire will be heading off to a C list comedy act on Sunday night all by his lonesome. Squire is a pretty sulen and quite man. He doesn’t enjoy crowds or company. The idea he might have to attend this hour and a half event in a theatre full of people just warms my normally cold heart. Oh, and he’ll have to blog about it. So we might all be winners here.

I wasn’t quite as brave. I took the Penguins over the Hurricanes tomorrow night. No spread. No Lines. Just the Pens getting the W. The Hurricanes have been showing signs of life lately and Pittsburgh is without Malkin. Nothing is certain here. I’ll be live blogging the game tomorrow night. That should be interesting. If the Pens lose, Squire has decided I will be attending some sort of EDM Rap Battle at a local night club next week. I will be going alone. The nightclub draws huge numbers from the undergraduate programs in our town. I also don’t like crowds or a lot of people. Also, generally not a fan of EDM, at all. I will also have to blog about my experience. I think I’d rather eat a bowl of salt.

Gritty fucked the whole thing up. It was like trying to watch your parents play Call of Duty. It was almost impressive. Squire and I think he should have to pick another game that takes place before Sunday or just suffer a punishment for his actions. If anyone wants to weigh in on this, or what Gritty’s punishment should be, please, let us know. Or you can just tweet him. Call him a coward. Or a fool. Either one works.

Pray for Salt. Pray for no EDM. Pray for no rap battles. Lord knows I need it.

Gonzaga is dancing again, and that’s a good thing

 

imageGonzaga, punched their ticket to the dance for the 18th straight year and that is a good thing. I can’t say exactly, why, but I have always been a huge Gonzaga fan. Perhaps, I just like a good underdog, or the number of Canadians they have had, but no it is more than that. It’s the fact that they were the little guy, they got their taste of the big time and instead of saying we had a nice run, or looking for greener pastures, they decided to stay there among the elites and that is exactly what they have done, made their own program the big time. And that is something I admire. I would have hated to see their consecutive streak that ranks them among the Dukes and Michigan states ended by some bullshit RPI ranking, but once again they did the right thing and took matters into their own hands.

Sidenote: I knew there (Editor’s Note: The wrong use of “their” was used previously by Squire. Gritty couldn’t stand for it) was know way Mark Few was letting them lose this game and that’s why I bet the Zags, moving the HardNo House to 1 and 0. Go me! And go Zags!

yes Gus, the Slipper Still Fits, and it’s not going to stop fitting.
