This Weekend in Running: Fearless Predictions (Special March Madness Edition)

We here at Less Than Our Best are concerned with very little. One of those few interests is how we're doing in our office pool. The other is acting like we have some expertise in predicting things. After the jump, a few things that will LITERALLY happen this weekend:

1a) Having beaten Southern Illinois in their tournament game, Herb Sendek's Arizona State Sun Devil basketball team will swagger around campus drinking and disrespecting women... until they receive numerous Facebook messages from their counterparts on the ASU track team, reminding them that it's the NIT.
1b) Basketball team responds by Facebook messaging back: It was indoors.

If you meet someone to go for a run over the weekend, they will bore you with which upsets they "had" and which they "almost had." You will want to kill yourself.

3) The opening rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament generate more interest than the just-past NCAA Indoor Championships. What? It's nice to be right at least every once in awhile.

4) I have to do it, right? ben's Final Four: UNC, Georgetown, Memphis, Duke.

5) Enraged that two of his four picks for the Final Four get ousted in the second round (Stanford and Tennessee), Brian Sell kicks the dry wall in his basement (that he constructed), wall breaks, Sell leaves the house and does an easy 15.

Ben... not good when half of your Final 4 isn't in the tournament anymore... why is Arizona State even running indoors I thought there was this thing called Global Warming...

oh yeh, I should have put in there to never trust my judgment in any sport (it took all I had not put the bearcats in my final four) and I dont think Ive ever scored in the top half of any bracket pool Ive ever participated in.
