Summing up last night’s NCAA championship game

April 8th, 2008
 

The Dead Guy has the best summary of last night’s victory by the Kansas Jayhawks over the Memphis Tigers to win the 2008 NCAA men’s basketball championship. Even his title is great: “Score one for Decent Society…

Could there have been a more fitting end to the college basketball season than what occurred last night? Joey Dorsey – fouled out of the game on a cheap foul he had no business getting. Fatal coaching flaws by Calipari showing a lack of basic understanding about when to foul and when to play defense. And the free throws… ah yes… the free throws. One glorious brick after another. Basically, the Tigers’ season in a microcosm. They lost a 9-point lead quicker than anyone since the Knicks against the Pacers.

Finally free of the shackles of basketball, the Memphis players can get back to doing what they do best… getting arrested. They’ll have plenty of time to beat up ex-girlfriends, incite riots, solicit prostitutes, punch people and take off running, and all the other activities that make their motors hum. Reserve guard Andre Allen was so anxious to get back to real life, that he failed a drug test the week of the Final Four. Good to see that he was taking this opportunity so seriously.

But seriously. Was that an exciting game or what?
