Just sit back and enjoy the high-flying styles of C.J. Leslie. McDonalds All-American and possible Kentucky Wildcat.
Sure, its not the peephole, but Erin Andrews on Dancing With the Stars is worth of a Chub of the Day.

I'm too tired to throw much at you tonight....due to another 10 hour drive for work, but I will just say this and we'll get back to business tomorrow.
Most boring final four ever? I THINK SO.

The Reds finished the 2009 season 78-84, and that is encouraging, but this club has nothing but questions. Will Joey Votto have a breakout season, Can Scott Rolen stay healthy? Will Aaron Harang perform in a contract year? Will Homer Bailey’s strong second half carry in 2010? How good is Aroldis Chapman? Of course the last question is, can the Reds shock the world and contend in the National League Central?

One of the most beautiful ballparks I've visited is Miller Park. Home of the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers have won 80 games in the last three seasons, which has not happened since 1987-1989, and after missing the playoffs in 2009; their fans were a bit disappointed. Baseball fans now expect the Brewers to compete, to be a good team. However, after the star sluggers of Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder and budding ace Yovani Gallardo, they have a lot of questions.
Matt Jones called them "elitist" and "racist," and while that may not be true... pompous pricks is definitely a fitting description. Shaugnessy started this argument with his attack of the Kentucky program, and now has made it beyond personal.
What a ridiculous individual.

We get it, everyone. Cornell hasn't been here before. They're a cinderella story. It's David versus Goliath of epic proportions. Ivy League vs. The Apparent College for the Deaf, Dumb & Blind. Non-scholly "athletes" vs. Coach Cal's semi-professional one and done's.
The media has pitched every single stereotype possible in regards to this matchup. Well, I'm here to give you the truth.
Seriously, what kind of parents produce an offspring that is so ridiculously hideous? Joakim Noah's parents sure must be proud of the lovely son they forced us to deal with for the last 8 and next 10 years. Goodness.

Welcome to the DUKE National Invitational Bracket. I am of the personal belief that Coach K and Kirk Singler picked out every single team that they wanted within their bracket, e-mailed it to the selection committee with naked pictures of themselves, and the offer of sexual favors. Since the selection committee is obviously made up of blowhard's, this offer was accepted and in return they received an absolute cake-walk to the Final Four.
The best part? I still think Baylor is the best team in this bracket! Onward.
The East Bracket is home to two number 1 seeds, Kentucky & West Virginia, and a former #1 team in the country, Texas. The selection committee made no bones with this bracket, and in my mind, it may be tougher than the treacherous Midwest.

The West could widely be considered the second easy bracket among the four, and with Jim Boeheim and company blatantly lying about the injury to Onuaku, we now have to wonder if the 'CUSE is truly safe for the entire first weekend....let's take a look.
The Midwest Bracket is one of the deepest brackets that we have seen in recent memory, and the committee did not serve Kansas a silver platter, especially as the #1 overall seed. While the upper-half of the bracket appears to be favorable for the Jayhawks, once they reach the sweet sixteen they, could run into some trouble, but thats for another day. Let's take a look at each game on tap for the Midwest Bracket.
When this blog first started, Megan Fox was our very first Chubby of the day....with our resurgence...its time to bring her back. :)

Wow, its official, the selection committee has completely LOST their damn minds. Explain to me how Kansas and Kentucky, the supposed top two seeds in the tournament, were handed the toughest draws throughout this tournament? We got some beef with a few of the committee's decisions.
-How in god's name is Tennessee labeled as a six seed? This is a team that beat the two top seeded in the ENTIRE tournament! Sure, they got derailed by a buzz saw in the SEC tournament, but this is just ridiculous.
-How can Kansas land the second rated 2 seed when they are the # overall seed??? (You'll see a theme with the 2 seeds.)
-What exactly did Duke accomplish in the ACC tournament by squeaking by 3 seeds in the lower-half of the ACC bracket that warranted them jumping Syracuse for the #3 overall seed? Bias? I think so.
-Then Duke lands the LOWEST rated #2 seed overall? I'm calling it right now. The Baylor Bears win that bracket!
-Kentucky is somehow rewarded by being the #2 overall seed in the tournament by being handed WVU. WVU was the last team considered as a #1 seed and is just won the country's best conference tournament! However, to even approach that game, they have to beat Texas and their former #1 ranking! Tough draw for the Wildcats.
-I'm sorry, Utah State is not a better team than several teams that were left out. The Aggies could not beat Virginia Tech or Mississippi State. Hell, I think they'd struggle with Rhode Island.
I'm sure I'll have more bitching to do, as we break down each bracket individually throughout the week, but I'm still in shock at the ridiculous draw that Coach K and the Dukies received. He must suck a mean dick.
Get in on our bracket challenge! Winner gets a t-shirt from the store!
It’s kind of hard to imagine that just a few seasons ago the Twins were a candidate for contraction. Now in 2010 they open a new ball park. Of course giving up the confines of the Homer Dome is one of the big questions facing this team, which will feel like they are in limbo until they can get catcher Joe Mauer’s autograph on a big phat contract extension. They have Mauer for this year, and they might have to make a serious run at a title to keep him.
I cannot believe that they are going to play baseball outside in Minnesota in early April, or late fall. The Twins have given up one of their key advantages, they knew how to play in the dome and hit very well there. I cannot imagine, balls flying out of the new park in frigid air like they did in the dome.
While we wait for Mauer to re-up with this team, Twins fans have more anxiety over pitcher Francisco Liriano. Will he be back? Will he resemble the pitcher he was in 2006? He did put on a clinic in Winter Ball, but he was terrible last year and the Twins may need his arm to be considered legitimate World Series contenders.
The last concern for Twins fans is whether or not their bull pen is an elite unit? Closer Joe Nathan struggled late in 2009, and recently suffered a possible season-ending injury last week during a Spring Training game. Two other pitchers in the Twins bullpen are also recovering from off season surgery. However they do have late season edition Jon Rauch for the entire 2010 campaign.
1. CF Denard Span
2. 2B Orlando Hudson
3. C Joe Mauer
4. 1B Justin Morneau
5. RF Michael Cuddyer
6. DH Jason Kubel
7. LF Delmon Young
8. SS J.J. Hardy
9. 3B Brendan Harris
SP: Scott Baker
SP: Carl Pavano
SP: Nick Blackburn
SP: Kevin Slowey
SP: Francisco Liriano
CP: Jon Rauch or Matt Guerrier (Pending Joe Nathan injury)
Sure, shes the voice of the most hideous cartoon character on television, Meg Griffin, but that doesn't mean she's not worthy of Chubby of the Day.
Ah, the day has finally arrived. We are just seven short hours away from finding out the destinies of 65 teams and their path to super-stardom come March.
65 teams, one goal. A national championship is within their sights. What 12 seed is going to earn that matchup that will eventually turn into the usual 12-5 upset? What #1 seed is going to be handed a path that is uncross-able?
Tonight is the night these aforementioned questions will be answered.
Tonight is the night that a champion can likely be determined.
Enjoy it. I know I will be.
