If Whoopi and Michael Moore Had a Baby….

UNC Wins

If Whoopi Goldberg and Michael Moore had a baby… it could not be as gosh-awful butt-ugly as “that game”.

Hillary“That game” was the sports event version of Hillary Clinton doing jumping jacks in a thong to Richard Simmons’ Sweating With The Oldies.

A tape of “that game” oughta be in one of those “ugly Wal-Mart shoppers” YouTubes.

The Connecticut vs Butler NC game several years ago moves to #2 as “most painful to watch… ever”.

“It got soooo bad that” I was actually looking forward to the Direct TV commercial wth the obnoxious karaoke guy.

If I had not had a special interest in one of the teams I would have switched over to “Real Housewives of Johnston County” at halftime and not switched back.

Two Special Olympics girls’ teams playing in the dark in wheelchairs could have shot better than either Carolina or Gonzaga.

Somewhere Shammond Williams was thinking “hey Justin…. been there, done that.”.

Roy never disappoints when it comes to disappointing…. Got in another of his jackass comments about Donald Trump in his post-game presser. The phrase “that SOB could screw up a one-car funeral” came to mind.

As incredibly awful as the officiating was (to both teams) how did the refs miss having one of those dreadful 10-minue delays in the last minute to ponder an obvious replay call.

All that referee team needed was Karl Hess and MLB umpire “Cowboy Joe” West.

Now whoever is responsible for what is in “the rafters” of The Dean Dome can take out that goofy Helms Thing. UNC only uses that thing when it needs to “have more titles than Duke”.

The Redemption Tour Thing was beaten to a bloody pulp. The implication that somehow last year’s buzzer-beater loss to Villanova needed to be “revenged” never made any sense.

FINALLY…. An NCAA Championship won by a team NOT from “the other Carolina”.

All of the above “is what it is”……

###

CONGRATULATIONS to what seems to be a great group of kids who will always be part of UNC / NCAA history as National Champions.

CONGRATULATIONS to Roy Williams for his 100th March Madness game and 3rd National Title. Whatever else has been / will be said about Roy Williams …. He deserves tremendous credit or his on-court achievements.

Now on to Baseball and The Masters …..

    Good visual. Hillary & Simmons. WJC would pay to watch that.
    Watched 5 minutes or so. Tired from the Adrenaline rush of first laps of Vette HP driving school..
    Game reminded me of election. Refs played roles of the alleged Russians​ as they supposedly hacked our elections

    I confess to watching the first half and turning in for the night at halftime only because I was tired and looking forward to a perfect Tuesday at Augusta National with my sons. Augusta National was far more perfect than what others thought of the BB game. This Heels team does deserve credit for finding a way to win ugly when it could easily have found a way to lose ugly.

      Paraphrasing a baseball saying…. “line drives and bloop singles all look the same in the scorebook”. UNC won its 6th NCAA Championship PERIOD!

    Egad, As a fellow Tar Heel said this morning, “you couldn’t pay me $100 to watch that game again.”
    Many complaints about too many fouls. Really? While we are complaining about refs, when will they enforce traveling calls eg. fake layups, bunny hops, switching pivot foots, three or four steps. And finally we can never compare this game to game of pre-90’s. Carrying the ball was called in pre-MJ NBA days.

      There seems to be universal agreement with the media and fans that the game was a train wreck.

    Years from now when people are looking at that banner they won’t care what a terrible game it was. I could say the 2009 game was just as boring if it not worse. The game was basically over by the first TV timeout. I would rather win a dog game than lose a beautiful one. The tournament is about surviving to play another day not teach basketball fundamentals. Do I wish the refs would have let the game be played with a flow? You better believe it but all I really wanted was a win by whatever means it took.

    Maybe you can come up with something as appropriate as the “Moochies” baseball analogy to describe this group. Roy just seems to excel at taking what he has and adapting to his present needs, but you have to start with quality material. He won both games by keeping his guys relatively fresh and beating a tired opponent at the end. Berry showed how much heart he has last night on two bad ankles. Please don’t bring up anything like a Whoopi/MM hybrid again, I may not sleep for weeks. I keep visualizijng a manatee with dreads.

      Obviously Roy has proven VERY successful at finding solid players and coaching them up over 2-3 years. I on’t understand why he keeps harping about not signing one&dones. Why not keep doing it the way he is doing it ???? His current way develops depth as well as players who know/understand his system. PLUS, fans get to know the players. WHY ROY WHY ?????

    Couldn’t past the image of Mrs. Clinton doing jumping jacks…. What was the rest of the article about?

    Great stuff, BobLee. Thanks. Hope you eye is getting better.

      $18,000,000 AND COUNTING. The total will top $20,000,000 easy before it’s done.

    Instead of inviting UNC to the White House,

    Trump should just TWEET!

      IMO… the whole Champions To The WH Thing and giving POTUS a jersey w/ his name on it has been old and worn out for many years. Cease and desist with the whole shebang.

        I totally agree!

        “The tradition of sports teams visiting the White House dates to at least Aug. 30, 1865, when President Andrew Johnson welcomed the Brooklyn Atlantics and Washington Nationals amateur baseball clubs.” Thomas Neumann, ESPN.com

        Who is going to be the first POTUS to end the tradition?

    ORW needs to remember “if you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you said”!! Several times in the past few weeks, he mentioned Donald Trump sent out too many tweets for several different topics and reasons. Then on Mike and Mike this morning, he told them he did not know about the redemption feelings of his players until he arrived in Arizona because he knowa nothing, nada, zero about social media!
    Please bring on baseball and little league. Glad its Masters week!!!!

      I heard him say that on M&M …. “I don’t know anything about social media ….”.

    Do you think ole Roy will boycott the White House because of his liberalism?

    • BobLee Reply

      I think he will “screw it up” somehow regardless.

      I don’t think Roy is a liberal at all. I think he is just a total ignorant boob when it comes to politics or pretty much anything not pertaining to “Bayskiball”.

      It was painful. I’m not “that fan” that blames players when the shots don’t fall. They care a lot more than I do; but it was soooo ugly.

        Leading up to the game, did anyone notice that the print media guys were trashing Roy & Co. about TGU and the TV guys were fawning over them? So now both “True blues” and ABCers can accurately say that the media is against them.

        • BobLee Reply
          2 weeks ago

          IMO… TGU has become a low-grade headache that no one (media or fans) expects to ever “go away” OR amount to anything significant.
