Notre Damn Is ‘Poppin Their Collars Now’

masonloss.jpgSo, that went well.

To paraphrase Mike Donnelly in Black Sheep, it’s kinda easy to win when you NEVER MISS A SHOT! Or at least that’s how it felt during the five minutes of the game that I actually got to watch. The bar I went to turned it off (and rightfully so) less than halfway through the first half. So, already embarrassed enough, my GMU hoodie (and Final Four t-shirt underneath) and I left to watch the game at home. But, of course, CBS had already turned it off as well (and rightfully so).

Based on the highlights below, I guess it’s all for the better. Perhaps worse than the loss itself was that Gus Johnson couldn’t even get his “rise and fire!” on. Although at the 1:42 mark he does give us a gem:

Maryland lost as well last night to ‘Cuse, so my only rooting interest left this March is for Jamie’s bracket to implode when Louisville loses today.

After the jump the completely insane pre-game speech from Jim Larranaga.

From The Sporting Blog (via HHR):

Slightly less inspiring that his “UNC is Superman, but our fans know we’re Kryptonite” speech two years ago.

    “Ever since I can remember I’ve been poppin’ my collar.”

    If GJ had worked that in with the same grace he worked in “Pause” on Spike Lee, I would give him the title of G.O.A.T.
