Hello everyone! It’s the Monday after the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. You know what that means? That’s right, only 361 more shopping days until the next time everyone you know complains about how messed up their bracket is! Not sure how I’m gonna make it that long without hearing about the heartache you all are going through. Oh well, at least fantasy football will be here in six months and I’ll get to listen to tragic circumstances of your last-second loss thanks to Marshawn Lynch’s fumble. That should tide me over until next year’s March Madness.
This is Monday Morning Tweets. This week’s tweets are after the fold.
Say it aient so Bill. RT @BillSimmons: Nobody believes in Denver even after 14 in a row. Crazy. They can absolutely beat OKC in a series.

Back when I was a little kid, I was playing in a junior golf tournament and Mick Cornett’s son was in my group. It was a really hot day, and the now-Mayor bought me a coke. So basically, he can never do any wrong in eyes. But really, how can anyone muster any outrage right now over the idea that Denver could beat the Thunder in a series? That seems completely and totally plausible to me.

The obvious comparison of Lacey Swope and Emily Sutton has been made on this site before, but maybe there’s actually something to it. Expect a bikini pick of Lacey Swope to surface on the Internet sometime soon.
@stevelackmeyer And they're all turning left in Edmond right about now.

You’re all following @dustbury, right? He’s the OKC blogfather, having written online since the mid-90s and every day for at least ten years. He’s always good for a laugh-out-loud quip like the one you see above…
So disappointed in myself…I was ready to dominate some Endless Enchiladas at On The Border and I could only eat 2!! Weak!!!

Wow, someone actually fell for the Endless Enchilada gimmick…and it was Tiffany Tatro. Seriously, has anyone ever left a Mexican restaurant and thought “If only I could of had a couple more enchiladas.”

Okay, yes, those Zubaz uniforms are terrible, but it lets me drop this awesome factoid. If you go to the Wikipedia page for Zubaz, the accompanying picture is of Zubaz “Enthusiasts wearing Zubaz brand pants at the 2008 Zubaz fan club barbecue in Choctaw, Oklahoma.” The picture is exactly what you think it would be. Here it is:
This is what Adidas was inspired by when they came up with those unis?
Only five No. 15 seeds have beaten a No. 2 in the tourney. Could Florida Gulf Coast be No. 6? This game is fun.

According to the notes sheet we just got from the NCAA, FGCU is only the seventh No. 15 seed to defeat a No. 2 seed.

I don’t know why, but I thought that was funny.
Also, if you need a gauge of how far college basketball has dropped in this state, those are the two reporters the Oklahoman sent to cover the OU basketball team.
True, I suppose.
Today I searched Twitter for the words “Derek Fisher.”
Oh… God… Abigail Ogle Really Is Going To Run This Town Someday
If ya have K-State going deep in the tourney, you clearly didn't watch my Skype w @jeffborzello! He said he didn't see what it takes in KSU.
— Abigail Ogle (@KOCOAbigail) March 22, 2013
Well crap, I can honestly say I did not watch Abigail Ogle’s Skype with that guy. I look forward to next year when she’ll be on somewhere a little more visible than KSBI. Maybe they’ll broadcast her Snapchat’s with important beat writers and we’ll all have a perfect bracket.
The Dean Blevins Memorial Tweet From Dean Blevins
A first. On a cruise. OSU fan walks up and interrupts dinner. Says, "Aren't you Al Eschbach?"
— Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins) March 18, 2013
You know, all those cruises have ended in disaster lately? Maybe it was one of those? After a week of living in filth and without electricity, we’d all look like Al Eschbach…
That’s all for this week. Follow me on Twitter here. Good bye!
