March Madness Is Great - Part I


A mere 7 days left till the Big Dance. I'm giddy. All week I'll throw out a random Tourney moment to get you in the mood.

"Who The Hell Is This Guy?"

Every few years, some no-namer comes out of nowhere and makes a name of himself. I was in college when Weber State's Harold "The Show" Arceneaux shot the titties off the ball in the first weekend of the '99 Tourney. The guy lit up #3 seed North Carolina (36 points) and #6 Florida (32) in rounds 1 and 2. Everywhere I went, people were talking about "The Show." It was crazy. Hot chicks who didn't know a bracket from a beer bong were talking about this guy. Alas, they lost to Florida in OT. But Arceneaux is the poster child for guys that you've never heard of before the tourney, and never hear from afterwards.

I'll bet Harry's lighting up some C league in Norway right now, taunting scrubs like Ray Nixon and Todd Townsend the whole time - "YOU CAN'T STOP THE SHOW! THE SHOW MUST GO ON, BITCH! "

Honorable Mention: Ken "Mouse" McFadden, Cleveland State. Jon Bryant, Wisconsin. Bo Kimble, Loyola Marymount. Fennis Dembo, Wyoming.

Basketballs have titties? Who knew?

Not so anonymous Jake said...

A quick bit of research shows that "The Show" is lighting it up in the Mexican Basketball league currently.

Is he dogging Nixon South of the border?

Check that Brad, "The Sheaux." One of the best nicknames from the NCAAs ever.

Isn't a choke when you're up by a bunch, then lose? Not sure which game you were watching.
