So now that DePaul is done butchering the game of basketball, we bring you another open thread for tonight’s main events: Florida and Syracuse from the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, and of course, the funniest show on television at the moment — Jersey Shore. We’ll get to Jersey Shore in a minute, but first, the game of the night.
Both UF and Syracuse come into the game undefeated. We all already know how good Syracuse has been this season, thanks to Fetch. Since that exhibition loss to LeMoyne (LEMOYNE!), Syracuse has been ballin’ out, and junior transfer Wesley Johnson has been superb for the Orange, averaging 17 points a game. The bigger surprise this season though has to be the Gators. They lost their best player from last season, Nick Calathes, to Greece and are coming off of back-to-back NIT trips. And despite starting the season unranked, a convincing win over Florida State and a win against then-second ranked Michigan State has vaulted the Gators just outside of the top 10.
I don’t feel like getting too much into Florida, because I’m sure I’ll post more about them throughout the season (since I do attend the school), but one name you should look out for is freshman guard Kenny Boynton, even though Florida’s best weapon is, arguably, PF Alex Tyus. Anyways, it should be a good game — at least that’s what I’m hoping for.
Now, onto Jersey Shore. It’s the funniest show on television right now… after just premiering last week. What makes it so funny? Where to start: The Situation. The “guidettes.” The awful fake tans. Then there’s this:
Bottom line, the show is television gold, and it airs tonight at 10 … real time, not that fake central time nonsense. /glares at Fetch and SC.
So there you have it. Enjoy our late-game open thread. You know the rules, everything’s open to discussion, just don’t mess with SC’s Starting Lineup figurines, or else he’ll be pissed.
Now let’s enjoy some quality entertainment, and of course, FIST PUMP LIKE A CHAMP!
