Have you ever been on a flight or a train with your dad, and realized he’s fallen asleep while you’re talking to him. Just sitting there, eyes shut, knee deep in REM as if he was in a bed, except he’s upright with his mouth open, head cocked back. Ya, Jim Boeheim can do that too. Photographic evidence after the jump.
No one likes being asked questions on national TV after a Final Four loss (SYR 56 – MICH 61). Especially when you know it could’ve been your last chance to win an NCAA title. Enter Jim Boeheim, your friend’s angry dad that is always yelling at him, in front of you, during mostly silent car rides to and from practice. “Mom, why can’t you take me, I don’t like Mr. Boeheim.” Video after the jump.
Last night wasn’t really a matter of watching sports on television, so much as it was a matter of yesterday afternoon. And late morning. And early evening. And evening. Basically there was a lot of college basketball.
March Madness is almost officially here. No, I don’t count conference championships as part of March Madness. We got a taste of the craziness to come, though, thanks to the Big East Championship between Syracuse and Louisville. Get caught up on that, plus a look at Tim Duncan’s resurgence in the absence of Tony Parker.
Jim Boeheim is no longer forging a reputation. He’s a dude coaching a successful and stable college basketball program and his only job is not to scare away parents of prospects. He doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. So when he’s fist deep in his own nostril on national television during the Seton Hall-Syracuse game in the Big East Tournament, well he doesn’t care.
From 1980-2013, the Big East Tournament reigned as the single most exciting event in college sports. There were no obscure teams. No lopsided match ups. And no mention of anything North Carolina related for 5 days. The most physical, most competitive conference tournament in NCAA basketball will be missed. Good night, sweet prince…
Missed what happened in sports last night? Eh, don’t worry about it. You only missed a huge college basketball upset and one of the ugliest NBA games of the season. Of course Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett were involved.
