Steinz's Sports Bog Bracket Madness
So the other day I heard The Bearâ„¢ talking about how next week's radio show would be devoted to NCAA tourney picks, which is swell. I mean, Phil's mom? You just can't top that. Bob Ryan? Well, perchance that could be topped.
Anyhow, that reminded me that I need to again tease you with a preliminary hopeful knock-on-wood list of people who are fairly likely, we think, possibly, to submit brackets for the first-ever Sports Bog-Comcast SportsNet-Washington Post Live NCAA Bracket Celebrity Pick 'Em Extravaganza, also known as the SBCSNWPLNBCPEE. The genesis of this scheme was, we wanted to think of something that would make The Bearâ„¢ think we were ripping him off. As always, I'd like to stress that I have nothing but admiration for The Bearâ„¢, that I cannot possibly be worth his time, and that every Cheese Boy reference on the TK Show earns me approximately $1.73 in additional Q Rating.
I'd like to dedicate all the work I've done soliciting tourney brackets to the Fredonia (N.Y.) Central School District administrators who, if memory serves, considered not letting me graduate high school because of an NFL pick 'em pool I was running in the hallways. Little did they realize I would one day get paid for doing basically the same thing. And here's a tip for all you prospective high school bookies: if you're running a pick 'em pool in your school hallways, you might want to consider not splashing your name all over the entry form.
It's also worth nothing that, in the week before I conduct the annual unearthing of my extensive NCAA Tournament Bracket Guide files, I've instead occupied myself with the not dissimilar Daily Baby Chart files. Yesterday, baby Ida set a career high with nine wet diapers in 24 hours.
Anyhow, here's the list of hopefuls, which doesn't include all the WaPo and CSN talent. If we get 50 percent of these people, it'll be one of the greatest accomplishments of my life.
Marc Nigel Sterne (the headliner), Ryan Zimmerman (Nationals), Nook Logan (Nationals), Jason Campbell (Redskins), Jim Williams (Washington Examiner), Jenn Sterger (SI.com), Max Bretos (Fox Soccer Channel), Christy Winters-Scott (Former Terp), Bob Novak (talking head), Tucker Carlson (sweetly talking head), Ted Leonsis (Caps), Alex Ovechkin (Caps), Chris Clark (Caps), Congressman Heath Shuler, Congressman Robert Wexler, D.C. Council Chair Vincent Gray, Bobby Boswell (DC United), Greg Roche (DC101), The Junkies, Alecko Eskandarian (Toronto FC), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), Jacqui Rimando (formerly of the Washington Freedom), random Washington Glory player, random Chesapeake Tide player, random Washington Bayhawks player, Randy "White Chocolate" Gill (Nighthawks), Sun Ming Ming (Nighthawks), Michael Weiss (figure skater), Jimmy Lange (boxer), Brendan Haywood (Wizards), Roger Mason (Wizards), Morgan Wootten (legend), Nikki Teasley (Mystics), Alana Beard (Mystics), Ken Pomeroy (KenPom.com) and Kate Michael (Miss DC 2006).
Still working on a few others. Jeanne McManus, for example. If you or your friends are legitimately famous, feel free to nominate yourselves by writing to me.
