March Madness

Well, it’s that time of year again everybody. It’s that time of the year when 64 colleges/universities compete against one another to claim basketball supremacy. The question on everyone’s mind: “Who is Showalter rooting for?”

It’s an easy answer: I’m rooting for good sportsmanship!

I want to see guys shaking hands before tip-off.
I want to see guys helping each other up off the floor after scrambling for a loose ball.
I want to see guys hugging and kissing after the game.
I want to see guys holding hands and staring longingly into each other’s eyes.
I want to see guys slow dancing together during the half-time performance.
I want to see guys laughing, giggling, cuddling together on the bench.
I want to see guys giving each other back rubs during timeouts.

That’s what I want to see old fashioned good sportsmanship.
Go Wildcats!!!

    I’d also like to see that kind of good sportsmanship (without having to rent a “special” DVD).

    The Wildcats are my favs too! And I agree, cuddling would be a good addition to the sport.

    Extraordinarily lovely post!

    I was just talking with someone about “The Baxter” yesterday. And “Stella,” and all your other projects.

    Though the boys may think this fancy, us girls think this is hot. Why are dudes cuddling and smooching and giving back rubs hot? Dunno. But it is is. Horrah for dandy sportsmanship! Sexy.

    YAY! You and Michael Black are going to be at Bonnaroo! But wait… are they saying you guys are going to premier the show there? All I can say is, I am incredibly excited to see you guys perform. I’ve been re-watching a lot of STELLA with my girlfriend and this is the perfect follow-up! Oh, and two more things:

    1) The Michael Showalter Showalter is AMAZING! When I saw the first episode that you interview Michael Black I was in tears. Way too hysterical.

    2) Love your comedy album! It’s so interestingly fresh and new. I love your writing being read over music. Really comedic and strangely epic. What a great album!

    hey man, i just heard your MOM is going to be at the harvard book store tonight.

    i tried to make that sound like a “your mom” joke, but instead it just sounds like your mom is an awesome noted feminist author/critic.

    I think he meant the Wildcats from High School Musical…but I don’t think they made the tourny, maybe next year.

    Ok a little off topic, but I stumbled upon this girl’s post, and maybe you can make her day by saying hello :P

    I personally think she’s hilar (oh and so are you :D)
