Good morning. I stayed up sort of late last night and I'm definitely feeling it this morning. I played 3 games of College Hoops 2K6 (360, of course) in Legacy mode with Radford. I lost by 10 to Va. Tech, then lost to West Carolina in Game 2 by 4, then beat Bowling Green by 6. I'm loving this game so far, although it was odd in my game at Bowling Green, I couldn't change my camera angle to the broadcast view that I like, I guess it was because the gym was so small and the bleachers would have been in the way of the view. I'm not sure, anyone else notice that? I did play an exhibition games at Duke w/ UNC, just to see the Cameron Crazies. The atmoshere is better, but I think the audio and reactions of the fans can get better. I went on a 10-2 run and the fans never really got into it, I'd love to hear the place just blow up, but I never did. The atmosphere needs to be amped up! Other than that, I have no complaints so far. I can't wait to see how Radford does in the next few games. I just randomly picked them, no real reason for it whatsoever.

I'm going to try and pick up GRAW after work today, I have it on preorder, so I should be scoring myself a copy. I might have to pickup Burnout as well, but I might wait for the impressions before spending the money.

Question of the Day: Which bubble team do you hope makes the NCAA Tournament?

In other news...
Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!
warriorbball, BiggieBaldsie (29), degisme (29), brianbell25 (27), KingofMinot (24)

Enough about me, what's up with you?

OOOH me thinks i'll like watching the NCAA tourney games online. I wonder how good the stream will be?

Anywho I had a late night watching Canada nearly completely embarass themselves at the WBC. I just hope they play better against the US today.

There's no material on my blog today so click it!

Going to see King Kong with my mom after work, we'll probably go out to dinner first too, so that should be a good time. Lost is a re-run again so there isn't much to watch on TV tonight. I watched the shield last night but I was also playing on Party Poker and I didn't really follow along to well. I guess thats what happens when you're grinding out the rent.

QOTD appears to be missing, so I can't answer it.

So you're gambling to pay the rent?

Yeah, hopefully the stream won't be too bad and work doesn't block it.

Grinding out the rent and playing poker...Hmmm...

QOTD is up, thanks.

Well according to the link you gave us:

LOL, but that won't stop the network guys from seeing what you're doing.

Picked up CH 2K6 as well. Great game so far and love the atmosphere. Are you having any problems with hearing the commentary over the crowd noise? It just seems the commentary is rather weak sounding, even with it all the way turned up. In any case, this was the game I was anticipating the most, and I'm not disappointed. Right now, I'm playing with Kansas of course, but will probably start a dynasty with a lower tier team. Especially, once Kansas gets knocked out of the NCAA tourney, I'll want to go with an unfamilar team.

QOTD: Any team from the Missouri Valley Conference....(Missouri State). I'm tired of the east coast bias, and I really think the MVC teams can be competitive against some of the mid major teams.

QotD: Hofstra. My fam is from Long Island, a buncha my friends went there. It'd be cool to see them get in. Not gonna happen though.

Yesterday was a long day, worked from 7:30am-9:15pm. Busy all day too, oh well it was worth it. I'm taking a 2 hour lunch break today, I'm gonna climb in to bed and watch the Cinncy/Cuse game for a bit and prolly take a nap.


Two playoff games tonight in the adult leagues, hopefully two W's.

I'm not hearing any problems w/ the commentary. I'd like the crowd noise to be louder myself and more into the game...sometimes they are, sometimes they definitely are not.

im not really paying rent with my poker money, I work about 40 hours a week, I'm just trying to get better at poker

AOTD-I'd actually prefer that Michigan not make the 65, rather then any bubble teams make it, so I guess I'm rooting for all 6 of the MVC teams make it along with Maryland. Im pretty sure ND has to win the Big East to make it so I don't count them as a bubble team.

I'm busy, busy at work this week. Have a big potential client in for the next 3 days which will seriously cut into my OS time. Bastards!!

Still "geeking out" on The Sims 2. Not sure why... but it is sucking me in. I've even made an OS T-Shirt for my game. Pretty sad. I think I may create the OS7 and see how long it takes Steve and BK to fall in love.

Check out my BLOG when you get a chance. I did Music today and would love to get some feedback on there about your tastes.

Obviously, I'd love to see Eastern Michigan win the MAC Tourny and sneak in... but realistically, I'd like to see Michigan make it in... just because it's been too long.

Whats up?

Its my last day of full class until I head back to Seattle for spring break. Not much going on, got some HW and **** to do, but no big deal.

Question of the Day: Which bubble team do you hope makes the NCAA Tournament? Probably one of the borderline MVC teams.

Decent day, no homework, taped the Spanish thing, the partner isn't going to get the same grade I have (cause I've done all the work) and I just got CH2k6 for 360.

 
# 16 Acid @ 03/08/06 03:28 PM
Well, the team as a whole last yesterday 7 sets to 11. I won 2 out of my 3 sets, so I did ok.

I'm not going to practice today because I'm sore, partly because I ran into the fence while running a lob and...because I want to play CH and pick up GRAW. :y4:
 
# 17 The GIGGAS @ 03/08/06 03:31 PM
Steve, I'll be starting a dyn with Radford soon... look for it!

Finally some nice warm weather around here (mid 40's- but no wind).. saw my parents off on their "world wind" trip to Japan & Austrialia yesterday (14 hr flight - eeecks ).. said the first meal they had over there was good old fashion cheeseburger w/ fries which ended up around $60... anyhoo - got some good news today - found out that I still have my old Sega Genisis around with my favorite sports games (Tecmo Super Bowl, RBI 4, Triple Play..) also saw something sad - the back cover of my World Series Baseball game had Puckett on it ... now to hook it up & give her a good run for her money now..

As far as the QOTD, I dont really know since I dont follow CB until the actual tournament...

Nothing really going on here, lots of schoolwork to "do". Right now I'm logged in during class on my laptop. OS during school, you guys are saving me from the History of CA!
