Obama Picking Tar Heels, Biden Isn't

Sorry, President Obama: Vice President Joe Biden can't root for the University of North Carolina at the Final Four this weekend because love is thicker than a tournament bracket.

During a visit Wednesday to Wayne County, Biden told the crowd
that he likes the Tar Heels -- except when they're playing Villanova. That's because Biden's wife, Jill, graduated from the Pennsylvania school.

The two teams play in the second of the two national semifinal games in the NCAA men's basketball tournament Saturday in Detroit.

Biden said if he went against Villanova, "I'd be sleeping alone."

Obama picked the Tar Heels as his winner in a bracket he filled out and revealed on national television prior to the start of the tournament.

    Tad, do you and Ashley go to the same school and study English together?

    Dave, Ashley is also talking about someone named Caroline beating Villanova and somebody named Nove. Be careful, somebody might start telling you about her five degrees. That's probably the way they spell lose at her school. Carolina will likely win, if for no other reason than the fact that Botox Head biden is normally wrong 97.8% of the time about anything that comes out of his mouth. I like the odds. I'd still like to see Bidens daughter in that video that is floating around. She's kind of good looking.

    ALPHA FEMALE one of my major pet peeves is people who spell lose with two o's. The word loose means free or released from fastening or attachment while lose means to be defeated.

    If UNC wins it will be no surprise (yep I like Duke), and will be good for the ACC. However if 'Nova wins as they "surprisingly" did against my Dukies well remember what happened in 1985 when they won it all. This could be a deja vu, but we shall see.

    There is not a chance that Caroline will beat Villanova...NO WAY NO HOW
