This Weekend's Tourney Games at The Q

Unread postby swerb » Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:13 am

Insanity what the NCAA did.

Games at 2:20, Buckeyes at 5:00. Gotta get 20,000 people out of the Q after the Buckeye game (which will end at 7:00 at the earliest), then back in for a 7:27 start for the first night game.

11 hours of basketball. No alcohol. No break in between games.

Column in this mornings PD touches on it.

Hey c'mon, Tuscon's done it before, I'm sure Cleveland will be up for the challenge :pb:

Complete stupidity for everyone involved...

Right now, I'm hoping Mason/Nova goes into triple OT and the Bucks don't start until 5:30...

Networks don't want games going after midnight??? Yet MLB's biggest games in October can? What about all the Pacific games throughout the year???

Games shoulda started @ noon, who cares if they overlap? Everyone's got multiple screens nowadays...

Fans & local bars/restaurants got royally screwed here...

best matchup of the day is Xavier/Marquette, we'll probably get seated by halftime :thud:

Gonna be like cattle around 7:00pm on Huron, Friday night

The Q and it's staff are slaves to the NCAA and the four networks covering the tournament. TV $$$ mean much more than the coin the average fan wants to spend to see the games in person. Sad really
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

5:15 start time on a Sunday!! C'mon NCAA.

Anyway, a great experience at the Q yesterday. Loved watching all the different schools' fans come in wearing their respective gear. Great atmosphere as Cleveland represented with virtually no empty seats and then making it a home game for the bucks.

Highlights, outside the actual games. The GMU band was more entertaining than the game (up until the end) with their pimped out band director complete with all-yellow suit with sunglasses and septor. The ISU fans thought they got hosed on every single call. Thought those poor bastards were going to riot.

You're salty and dismissive today.

Fucking hungover German jagoff.

Wanna meet in Mansfield for a few beers and the evening games?

My favorite part of this is where you call me names then ask to get drinks, effin perfect. And yeah I was a jagoff earlier, my bad.

Enjoy Mansfield. :cheers:
