So, Drexel and Syracuse are out…Syracuse having gone 10-6 in the Big East…but Illinois, Stanford and Purdue are in? I don’t really get that.

Either way, it’s Tournament Time and everyone is going to start filling out those brackets, the link below is a link to a PDF of a printable NCAA Tournament bracket. Do you want to be looking at ESPN/Pontiac logos all week? Hell no. Print out the Joboo bracket with not a damn corporate sponsor.

2007 NCAA Tournament Bracket

The rest of this, let’s see if we can’t turn the comments into some actual discussion…since it seems like we’ve been lacking in that category for a while. Tournament selection/seeding complaints, upset predictions, Final Four predictions, that sort of thing.

I’m a bit surprised that this story isn’t making more news. An Indiana man is suing the Pacers, their mascot and claiming injury when he took part in a free throw contest.

What the article says is, “the lawsuit states that Jackson began to leave the basketball court but was tackled from behind by the team’s mascot, “Boomer,” a 6-foot-tall blue cat with gold whiskers.”

After reading this lawsuit in its entirety, I’m a bit surprised by the media’s handling of this incident. What was presented was a much more scaled down version of the events of that night. Surprisingly, the media did not cover the thuggish actions of several Indiana Pacer ballplayers. Thankfully, we here at Joboo believe in several things, one of them being presenting the information to the public.

Oh, who the hell am I kidding, I saw that the lawsuit was not on the internet in its entirety (I’m looking at YOU thesmokinggun…) and we decided we just had to put this gem up. The beginning is a bit stale and mostly covered in the news article, however, this thing gets entertaining when Jeff Foster hits the scene. I know I’m asking for a leap of faith, but Trust me on that one.

The PDF should hopefully have attached itself below…

Pacers Lawsuit

While watching Game 3 of one of the most depressing World Series of my short life, I was cheered up immensely by catching the preview for the upcoming 24 season. It got me pretty excited about everything 24, which got me thinking of other things making there return in the near future. Since the NBA making a return is a little more on topic for this blog, but given my inability to shake 24 from my mind, I decided, instead of rolling out an NBA season preview full of information you can gather from more reliable sources, I would let you know which NBA franchise corresponds to your favorite/least favorite 24 character. We’re going to start with the Western Conference merely to avoid any appearance of a Midwest bias.

Oh, yeah, that’s the 24 Season 6 trailer debuted Tuesday night.

Those who know, know Joboo only live blogs the major sporting events. When I flipped on my television briefly after 4pm this Afternoon, I immediately went to some knucklehead on Disney talking about football. Going to ESPN2 I noticed that some pre-season basketball was on. When I noticed that my beloved Sixers were facing CSKA MOSCOW, I knew it was fairly mandatory to live blog the happenings.

4:06: Iverson makes a steal and goes in for a layup, the Sixers are actually putting their foots on some throats it seems, as they’re up about 14 in the second quarter, but the bottomline is that the live blog is called for because they could blow this lead at any moment. Plus, these Russians could just start showing off their punching power at any moment.
