A couple of hours before Kansas lost some idiot on their Scout board started a woof thread regarding Villanova's demise. It looks like one of the stupidest threads I have ever seen. My Cal "friends" have been baiting me to start woofing about how Duke will do in Sunday's game. I'll let the Devil's play on Sunday speak for itself. I hope you will too.
Actually, quite the opposite seems more likely here...
As we seem to have quite the cadre of fretters and doomsdayers.
Woofing just ain't our style in general, unless it involves Kerlina....
there was an engineering semiformal, and when kansas lost, even though no one had a tv, everyone started cheering becuase everyone was following it on their phones
things to do this weekend:
1) watch duke
2) chip in to iron dukes for the average cost of one cleaning bill for "gatorade stain removal"
Because no one will make fun of us if we don't make fun of Kansas and lose to Cal?
I absolutely HATE woofing/trash talking. To me there is nothing more stupid than 40 something, unathletic, bald-headed men (not meant to offend anyone) trying to trash talk about 20 year old extremely athletic, trained young men losing/winning a game!
You have no control of the outcome so why bother saying anything? Just root for your team! Before I left work on Friday, I had 5 people INCLUDING my assistant principal tell me Duke was going to lose to Louisville and NOVA was going to the Final Four...I'm seriously considering filing a grievance against my asst. principal.
Listen, that Cal team is good and we will have a game on our hands today. And the mantra of the Big Dance is and always has been 'survive and advance', so making fun of adversaries is always STUPID!
No preening here. I'm off to church now, and will be on my knees during prayer time hoping the Good Lord felt like watching over a basketball game when he woke up this morning (does he ever sleep?) And watching over a game being played by devils, at that.
Today is going to be a rough day. I'm wearing all black, doing anything I can to reverse that bad mojo. Black slacks (pleated), checkered black shirt, black tie, black shoes, black socks.
Let's Go Devils!
Kind of a Johnny Cash look going there? Except for trhe checkered shirt, of course.
I feel confident Duke will play well and win today.
I am certain that at the end of the day I will be proud of this Duke team.
i read a LOT of the other boards. for the most part, they are nothing like DBR.....
it's very entertaining to go to the other team's board after a duke win and read the in-game thread.....what starts out with all the bravado usually goes something like :
1 - we are gonna kick's duke's butts. They only take 3 point shots.
2 - "what's wrong with________ ? (their player)
3 - " we've got to do better, these guys are SO slow.",
4 - "k bought off the refs"
5 - " is this Skeletor m**f** ever gonna miss a 3? "
6 - "why are we not getting any dunks?"
7 - "we gotta get a new coach
then it's followed invariably by the "duke gets all the calls" thread and another "well, they don't have any lottery picks" and of course, "they will go out in the first round!"
after reading how absolutely stoopid those treads look, i would never post pre-game smack talk...
we're gonna win by 30.
