Actually, Syracuse didn't even make it out of the first round. But how could this shocking revelation be true, you say? We all witnessed the Orange dispatch Indiana State with relative ease, didn't we? And then certain atrocities were committed by Scoop, Rick, KJo and the rest of the basketball team first hand as we succumbed to Marquette, right?
Heck, we've even got the facepalm photos to prove it.
Well, the bad news is those things did happen. But I wasn't even talking about mens NCAA basketball tournament in the first place, ya young rapscallions! I was talking about the Big Dance that really matters. I'm talking about the America's Toughest Weather City tournament. Featuring 64 carefully selected cities hailing from all over the country grouped into four regions, this shameless attempt to make weather seem remotely interesting to the under-70 age group kicked off last week and features some of the nations best shit-holiest weather locales.
I have a perfect bracket. Do you?
Turns out, in a massive upset, Syracuse was bounced in the first round by Caribou. Yes, I s'pose Maine can now finally celebrate a victory over Syracuse in something. Obviously it wasn't working out in sports. No sir.
So it turns out, Syracuse fans everywhere can celebrate a small victory today, because it's not home to the nations shittiest weather. Matter of fact, Hartford, CT even advanced to the second round (suck on THAT, UConn!). So did Washington DC (F you, Hoyas!). And Chicago is still alive and well in the Sweet 16 ( DePaul!!! na na-na na-na na-na HEY YOU SUCK!).
So lets look on the bright side today, and every day going forward. We're not #1 where it counts in the hearts and minds of the people that really matter. Y'know, the friendly folks at your very own national weather service. And no one can take that away from us.
