Which teams do you predict will make it to the NCAA Final Four showdown? Which team will win the championship? Which teams will pull off the big upsets? How far will Belmont make it?

Who cares except team fans; of which I am not one.

I haven't given it much thought, off the top of my head I'll say either Louisville or Indiana wins it all. Or not. No bracket for me this year.

I lost interest in Basketball in high school, so I have no opinion. I do enjoy the excitement in the people that do.

The Mighty Mouth returned yesterday and attacks Loner, after the Lone one had already left the board. Rasputin tires ever so hard to infuriate Loner by referring that he is an old hippy. However the great wit of Make Believe seems to forget his attempt at being a hippy. In a time when love and sex was the norm, our want-a-be sex god, could not get laid by the pretty drudged induced sex nymphs. Thus his life of scamming low self-esteem women and mean begin.

that someday before he expires that LONER finally understands that peace and diversity cannot co-exist.

Raspy reasoning is that the world has many different kinds of people, none of which he gives a rats ass about.

Nemo.......What Loner knows is that your net worth is lower than your education and your IQ combined.

In both situations is far more than your total life’s worth, Raspy old boy.

Calfornia State University-Pomona?


Idaho State?

that someday before he expires that LONER finally understands that peace and diversity cannot co-exist.

That sounds like the keynote speech at a Hitler Youth Rally.

Raspy has admitted he doesn't know Loner, but yet the sleezeball knows what Loner knows! He doesn't know Nemo but knows his net worth. As I said the nerd slithered out long enough to post more sleeze,

If raspy has ever gotten ahead it is due to some woman’s wealth, because the old boy has never worked for anything other than to leech of someone else.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:03

Good observation gdia.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:06

Kosh has made his predictions and now we will see if he has got it right.

By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 7:09

Number 1 reason for enemy: Are you so jealous because he "outleeched" you, dumba$$? Jealous because the women preferred him instead of you? It sure 'sounds' like it.

Now let’s scrutinize this post. The first five words tell us that yogi does not care for Basketball. The next five words tell us that does not like Basketball. Now what is wrong with his statement?

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:22

What is the matter yogi? Was I spending too much time on Raspy that you just have to lash out with the most stupid post of all?

When Raspy talks of the simple six, you are among that total.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:29

Grandpa yogi, once again comes to the aid of his genetic inferior descendant Raspy.

Dose this make you feel better, yogi?

By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 7:41

Yes it 'dose', dumba$$. It's easy to compare the two, and you're at the bottom standing 'upside down' on your head.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:55

Thinks for pointing out my yogi....yogi.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:56


By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 7:56

Will the simpleton see it.

By: bfra on 3/21/13 at 7:57

yogi can't stand on his head because everybody knows it stays up his ass.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 8:02

LOL bfra

By: dargent7 on 3/21/13 at 9:31

I've never followed college BB.
Maybe college football. Always when Michigan played whomever.
I love NFL football. Now am a 49ers fan. Fu!*k the Titans.
re: yogi: I thought Brrrrk hit the EASY button and made that old fool disappear?

An interesting letter you Obama fans should love to read. You should also read the interview noted in the letter.

Then consider: Barry said he was going to stop the wars when he went in office... but we're still in a war.


By: gdiafante on 3/21/13 at 9:47

I think all the yogi fans out there would be interested in a recently discovered xray of his head.


By: bfra on 3/21/13 at 10:03

LOL gdiafante!

Yeah, jughead! They use balls when playing basketball. Good guess!

Good morning, Nashville.

Thank you, for the kind words posted yesterday. I have been on the road a lot this week and have not kept up with the conversation in real time.

This morning, I posted some stuff on the "Obama visits Israel" board....the following rant was one of those posts:

For news with a local twist, check this WSJ piece out:

March 20, 2013, 11:40 a.m. ET
Klan Plans to Protest Park Names in Memphis .

Source URL:


I left this comment on that WSJ comment board:

The South never repented of its original sin: White Supremacy.

The 2nd amendment enabled the great secession, the ensuing war between the states and the KKK... it should have been struck down while the South was boycotting the Congress....nobody connected the dots.

The South should never have been readmitted to the union with their state borders still intact; the entire region should have been declared a US Territory, administered to by the federal government in Washington DC.

Actually, since 618,000 soldiers and sailors died in the Civil War, it could be argued that Abe Lincoln screwed up, by trying to keep those wicked people in the American fold....he should have let those haters leave the union...they never did understand the concept of all men being created equal....the bedrock of the American experiment.

(end post)

It is difficult to believe that it has taken this long to change the names of those 3 Confederate themed public parks...in a black majority city yet...those parks rubbed shit in the face of every black person in Memphis everyday for many, many years....and now, the KKK plans to protest the name change...oh yeah, the South never repented....still hasn't.

By: Loner on 3/21/13 at 11:45

As for the topic of the day on this thread, I do not follow basketball....not sure that I even know the rules of the modern game....to me, the game had fundamental flaws....over the years, those flaws were exploited to produce the hi-scoring, buzzer-beating effect that fans seem to crave...IMO, it's just too easy to score in basketball....and in hockey, it's just too difficult to score....again, just my own biased view....no offense intended.

By: dargent7 on 3/21/13 at 11:59

Loner: Hi ya!
If you're ever visiting the West Coast, make sure to stop by.
Bring those naked pictures of your ex-wife I keep seeing pop-up on the Internet....

By: gdiafante on 3/21/13 at 12:11

I agree about basketball, loner. It isn't the same game I played as a child. Back then, you couldn't touch anyone or it was a foul. Now, you practically have to beat the hell out of the defense in order to just maintain your position. Crazy.

I also agree about hockey...the defense and goalies have gotten better, they need to make the goalie pads smaller or make the net larger or something. I miss the days of Gretsky, when you'd get a 90 goal scorer...hell, even a 50 goal scorer now is rare.

"Given the demographics west of the Jordan River, the only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine," Obama said.


Wow, he actually said it!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 3/21/13 at 12:27

He added that "neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer," saying, "just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land."

By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 12:31

Everyone's personal opinion is considered as biased by any one who doesn't agree, Loner. With the rest of the "silly six", you shouldn't feel too alone on this site.

I hope the muslims slaughter liberals first.

It looks like congress has passed a bill that will keep mail delivery on Saturday. You won't have to wait until Monday to get your latest bill.

By: gdiafante on 3/21/13 at 12:38

Let me guess, Jughead is a fine young Christian...that happens to be a closeted gay and sociopath.


By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 12:57

A good joke on state legislatures: The Minnesota legislature was in a discussion of possibly allowing same sex marriages. They gave an 11 year old child (girl) the floor to make a comment.

It's obvious the child didn't make that speech herself but it shocked the legislators. They never gave her an answer when she asked 'which parent do I not need, my mom or my dad'?


A good laugh at the legislature.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/21/13 at 12:58



Jughead wish he had some.

By: gdiafante on 3/21/13 at 1:17

Keep dragging those knuckles yogi...

By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 1:24

Another good laugh for you Obama fans.

[A man died and went to heaven.

As he stood in front of St.Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clock before him.

He asked, 'What are all those clocks'?

St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.

'Oh', said the man, 'Who's clock is that?'

That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating she never told a lie.
'Incredible', said the man. And whose clock is that one?'

St Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice telling us Abe only told two lies in his entire life.'

'Where's President Obama's clock?', asked the man.

'Obama's clock is in God's office... He's using it as a ceiling fan.']

How many of you are old enough to remember 1976? It's strange times never seem to change.


By: Loner on 3/21/13 at 3:04

Darge...those pictures of my "naked" ex-wife were photo-shopped...by her. If I ever get out to the Golden State, I'll stop by...check out the medical marijuana rules, regs. and prices for me, good buddy....I need motivation.

By: Jughead on 3/21/13 at 3:06

@ gdiafante: balls.

By: Jughead on 3/21/13 at 3:06

@Loner: Will you leave today and never return?

By: Loner on 3/21/13 at 3:51

Blanketnazi...thanks for the link.

Obama continued on after the quote you posted...this is also noteworthy:

Obama said. "Given the frustration in the international community, Israel must reverse an undertow of isolation. And given the march of technology, the only way to truly protect the Israeli people is through the absence of war -- because no wall is high enough, and no Iron Dome is strong enough, to stop every enemy from inflicting harm. "

In my opinion, the Israelis, the Palestinians and the US are all in a state of denial....the 2-state solution was dead on arrival in 1948 and that corpse is not coming back to life anytime soon...in fact, it was never viable...a stillborn idea.

The proposed state of Palestine would not have contiguous borders, Israeli territory would surround small enclaves of Palestinians....the proposed state of Palestine would not control its own airspace or ports....would not have its own army, navy or air force.......would be subjected to periodic Israeli incursions and or the garrisoning of IDF troops....I would call that "Sovereignty Super-Lite". The Palestinians would be fools to accept such a deal.

Obama is wrong to state that Israel is both a "democratic" and a "Jewish" state...those two concepts are naturally opposed to each other...."democratic", being secular by nature and "Jewish", being theocratic by nature.

A democratic Jewish state is oxymoronic, Mister President.

Jughead's 4:06 post appears to be a veiled death threat....that crosses the line on the NCP's Terms of Service....you gotta go Jughead....seriously your IP needs to be banned here...you are creeping people out big time.

By: yogiman on 3/21/13 at 4:12

No big deal here, Loner. If there's anything detrimental on jughead's remarks just consider the source and ignore it.

You know, like the detrimental remarks you all make about me. I understand you don't know what you're talking about so your remarks are insidious. I just ignore them.

Cry like a baby yogi.
