The Epic Final Four Graphic Post

Gotta be a super quick one today, heading on a plane to New York in a minute.

So: I wasn't sure if CBS' graphics people needed some free help, but if so, they have my permission to use this:

YOU'RE WELCOME. (And see if you can solve the "riddle." Hint: one of them is "Butler.")

I'm picking UConn to beat Butler in the championship.

Quick Yankee thoughts:

1. You're on the MARK, Teixeira!

2. Our bullpen is sick mcnasty.

3. Russell Martin is an offensive juggernaut.

See you all Monday. Have a great weekend.


  1. VCU = Viet Cong
    Kentucky = Fat Redneck riding a motorcycle because that's all they do there
    Uconn = no idea

    I stand corrected on Russell Martin... so far. But it's only been 1 game.

    No, no:

    VCU = Vietcong
    Butler = Butler
    UConn Huskies = "husky" guy riding on a motorcycle
    Kentucky = "Kentucky Colonels" of the ABA = Eli (Owen Wilson) as Colonel George Custer in "The Royal Tennenbaums"

    Did I win?

  3. From IMDB, re: Owen Wilson picture

    Peter Bradley: [Eli is on drugs while being interviewed on television] Now, your previous novel...
    Eli: Yes, "wildcat".
    Peter Bradley: Not a success. Why?
    Eli: Well... wildcat was written in a kind of obsolete vernacular...
    [long pause]
    Eli: ... wildcat... wild... cat...
    [he stares into space]
    Eli: ... pow... wildcat... I'm going to go.

    Well played, Anonymous.

  5. The Grandy Man can! Want to know what song Curtis heard as he stepped up to the plate to hit a massive homer?

  6. Good work, you got it. I guess Kentucky was the only hard one.
