Now That’s More Like It

April 26th, 2009

I’m just gonna come right out and say it:

March was a major letdown.

Whew. Finally got that out.

I don’t know if it was just me, but it just seemed like March was a month full of total snoozers. March Madness was so Badness I even sat down to watch the Women’s title game hoping for something good—22-point blowout.

But boy, has April stepped it up. We seem to be having at least one great game every night, and today we have 4(!) NBA playoffs games, 2 NHL playoff games, Yanks/Sawx at the Fens, 500 miles of Talladega, AND the 2nd day of the draft!

It’s a smörgåsbord of great games on TV today. Check the snack situation and slide on the sweatpants. No reason to leave the couch today, kids.

Six? Really? Six?

March 13th, 2009

I don’t even know where to start.

The Connecticut/Syracuse game set a new record for roots last night in a game that was absolutely epic. That word is overused a lot these days, but in this situation it’s an understatement.

There is no better of example of why this technology exists than the unreal fun of screaming at my TV as the players willed their way into overtime after overtime. For your sake, if you’re reading this, I sure hope RUWTbot had your back last night.

update: the game is being replayed on ESPN Classic if you can find a tv…

The Return of Eldrick

February 25th, 2009

“You are back, man! You are back!”

The peanut gallery is boisterous, but accurate. After a seemingly endless layoff, Tiger is finally back.

Check out The Golf Channel Schedule to find which channel number Tiger is on.

update: there have been some great commercials so far. definitely not a coincidence that Tiger is wearing the same outfit on the course as he did in some of the spots. my favorite so far:

RUWT? Gear for Playoff Challenge Winners!

February 7th, 2009

before we get started, really A-Rod? really? i never wanted him on the Yankees. still don’t.

Well, it’s been a week. Hopefully the withdrawal symptoms are dying down, and you’re not waking up in a cold sweat screaming, “Cover 2!” Yes, the NFL season is over, but pitchers and catchers report in a week, and March Madness is just around the corner, so don’t fret. But to truly give you pigskin fiends the closure you deserve, I’ve gotta announce the winners of the NFL Playoff Challenge.

The plan was to make RUWT? shirts for the top 3 pickers. Coming up with a random tiebreaker for all the folks tied for 3rd that picked the Steelers over the Cards didn’t seem fair, so they’ll all get one. Congrats to all 5 winners!

Tied for 1st: 7 picks

Tied for 3rd: 6 picks

Down to the Wire in the NFL Playoff Challenge

January 21st, 2009

Ouch. No, really. Ouch. Please don’t ever think that because I run this site I have any intellect whatsoever. After ten games wanna know how I’m doin? Hanging out at the Mendoza Line. That’s right, I picked the Eagles over the Vikings and the Steelers over the Chargers, but that’s it. 2 correct picks. Bleh.

Anyways, you didn’t come here to hear about my picks, you came to hear how you’re doing! With just the Superbowl left, we have a logjam at the top. The three users with the most correct picks will get a handmade RUWT? t-shirt from yours truly (check out senorpepr in his) and bragging rights for life.

one more thing: If there’s a tie, getting the Superbowl right will be the tiebreaker. If we need more tiebreakers I’ll make some up. 🙂

Hey folks, we had a pretty sizable outage today. No scapegoats here, just utter and complete boneheadery on my part. Scores and news will be caught up soon.

update: the site and the toolbar should be all caught up and back to normal.

Are you ready?

December 28th, 2008

Are you sure? ‘Cause we’re getting into “there’s no good reason to leave the couch” territory. Seemingly every NFL game today has playoff implications, and we have a week of great bowl games just around the corner. And I’m in such a good mood about this week, I won’t even bring up how much the highway robbery that doesn’t have the Longhorns in the title game. I’m not gonna do it!

Hope everybody is having a great holiday week…

Keeping the Regular Season Interesting

November 30th, 2008

Well that was fun.

Fresh off of a 10-3, rolling through the playoffs to win it all performance in my NFL Fantasy league last year, I put up a big stinker in 2008. I’ll finish under-.500, miss the playoffs, and I’m still blaming Eli and the Giants D for costing me a must-win back in Week 6.

And just as a side-note, you shot yourself Plax? Really? Really?!?

Anyways, without Fantasy to keep me occupied my productivity on Sundays is threatening to skyrocket, and I just can’t have that. So to keep things interesting I’m dipping my toe into the world of, out first NFL sport sponsor at I’m a sportsbook n00b, but I figure this is a great way to add some spice to the rest of the regular season. This week? I’m liking the Colts giving 6½ at the Browns.

This should be fun.
