Congrats to the UConn Huskies for winning another national championship, even though the game was so poorly played that it appeared both teams wanted to lose badly.
Butler must have wanted it worse.
At the half, the announcer said it was the lowest scoring first half in a final since 1946. At the end of the game they said it was the lowest winning score since 1949.
At about eight minutes into the game we began ridiculing both teams. Every missed hoop and turnover was cause to creatively insult the team. We eventually had to get a thesaurus to come up with new adjectives to describe the level of sucklitude that was pouring out of my TV screen.
Which, by the way, is an old-style standard definition tube TV. My friend casually complained about it for the first few minutes, but after the game he thanked me for sparing him the visual immediacy of watching a game that bad in high definition!
It would've been like watching "Gigli" in 3-D!
(Hey it's a Bennifer reference! How often do you see those anymore?)
I guess when you win, you win. But for the announcers to have to go back seven decades to find a championship team that did worse than you is kind of amazing.
And boy, the 1940s must have been one shitty decade for NCAA hoops, huh?
