March Madness Part Duex: Sons Strike Back

As the second day of NCAA tourney action draws to a close, we here at Made 'Em Jump Like Rod Strickland would like to take a moment to acknowledge some of the day's best performers:

Singer, songwriter, troubador extraordinaire Delbert McCLinton's son, Jack (pictured inset), went off for 38 points in Miami FL(s) game against St. Mary's this afternoon. Beyond the startling physical resemblence, these two share something beyond the prototypical father-son bond: a love for Thai hookers & Mad Dog 20/20. File that factoid away for future reference....

Performance number two of the afternoon belongs to Stephen Curry, son of Wardell Curry. Stephen, known as one of the deadliest shooters in the country, went off for 40 during today's game against the college basketball team that white people like, the Gonzaga Bulldogs.

Speaking of the 'Zags...ever since Heytvelt took the team on a trip that would make the great Hunter S. Thompson proud, the Blue Devils of the PacWest have been perennial underperformers. Your esteemed editors have a few words of advice: "...shut up bitch and chew up this mushroom!"

Finally, we would like to acknowledge the #13 seeds. Two takedowns today: Siena over Vandy and Los Toreros over the Huskies. Not exactly vintage from stuff from coach Calhoun.
Truly impressive stuff from the underdogs...just like Mr. Nakamura's grass-roots industrialist empire in Japan (Ed note: one of the most gregarious, perveted Japanese business men we have ever met).

More to come from Hiro after the D.C. Regionals tomorrow
