    @bhizzle: I researched on kayak and the bought via southwest.com as I have frequent flier miles I’m trying to build up with them. My PHL to RDU roundtrip was pretty damn affordable (especially when comparing it to what a tride or Greeks flight woulda cost).

  4. Gavinsdad Says:

    Whooo Hoooo!!! It took me a while to get over my Racers’ heartbreaker today, but with Kansas going down, I am downright giddy. This tourney is now the Cats to lose. Slow breaths, one game at a time. Deacons first.

    8pm tip offs are not fair. Too many nerves, too much wine.

    Re: UNI vs KU

    I just spent the last hour texting back and forth between my buddy from KU and my buddy from UNI. Exhausting. Well, at least one of them won.llfa
    Huge upset for UNI!

  17. Mr.Palmer Says:

    That dude that took that three has some serious balls.

  18. ohhphee Says:

    Yeah, he was making them all game. Not to mention a brilliant behind- the – back pass earlier in the half.

  19. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Good day in the tourney so far. Huskies were fierce. West Virginia will be tough though. And northern Iowa was fun to watch.

    Time for the first cookout of the year. I. March no less. Not bad.

  20. Tzara's Ghost Says:

  21. voopa Says:

    Holy crap this 4/27/71 sounds great!

  22. SillyWilly Says:

    yeah, voopa, i was just listening to it!

    so crisp.

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    I haven’t listened to a lot of Dead since Phish came back, and I forgot how much I love the folksy/bluesy feel of the Dead.

    I wish Phish would let Mike run a little with his tendencies. love blue grass Phish.

  24. Mitch Says:

    so i was right. still didnt know where it came from cause i didnt see anyone else say it.

    glad you made it back in one piece. work was brutal. last night was worth it tho.
