Tourney Liveblogging, plus open thread on who the Eagles should draft, fantasy baseball, etc.

While I would like to go back and forth on who the Birds should draft, this is a wide-open thread: feel free to drop a line on anything sports, really. I’ll be doing a liveblog for pretty much the rest of the evening, only breaking to eat/help a buddy with his fantasy baseball draft. So, any thoughts on fantasy baseball are welcome as well – I’m pretty new to the game. Always been more of a fantasy football guy. But I’m thinking I want to go with Utley, unless I can grab a guy like Hanley Ramirez or Pujols at the top. I think Utley is about to have a very big year.

Plus, don’t forget to vote in the March Madness Beer Bracket Extravaganza – 64 beers battling it out for ultimate bragging rights. Your votes will decide the champ. Check that out here.

Here’s what I think will end up happening with the Eagles in the draft. They probably end up using number 21, and either their second or third to move down, drafting one of the top OT prospects. Then, they trade out at 28, probably early in the second round, picking up either another second or a higher third. They use the first second to pick up Donald Brown, and use their next two picks (which will fall somewhere in the late second/early third range) to pick up some combination of players at the following positions: TE, S, WR.

What would I like them to do? Trade the first and their third for Anquan Boldin. At 28, take the best RB left on the board. With their second round pick, select the best OT/TE left on the board.

Thoughts? What guys would you love to see them bring in? Sleepers? The (cough) floor is yours.

And now, to the liveblogging. Open thread in the comments. I’m pumped. Continue reading

The March Madness Beer Bracket Extravaganza, Round One. 64 beers enter – who will you vote in as Champion?

Alright, on the first day of Beer Tournament play, we’ll be doing the Finnigan’s Wake Regional and the Fox and Hound Regional. Tomorrow we’ll continue Round One with The Bishop’s Collar Regional and the Eulogy Belgian Tavern Regional.

A quick note on the seeding: the order of the seeds comes mostly from my own preference, with the help of a few beer-educated friends of mine. While I consider myself a beer advocate, I am by no means a connoisseur or expert. Thus, you will likely disagree with some of my rankings; I tried to take into account craftsmanship, taste, popularity, and the environment in which you are likely to partake in the beverage. All of that aside, if I preferred a beer to another in any given regional, that beer was ranked higher. Ain’t no democracy at The Pundit.

With that in mind, let’s get to the voting! Continue reading
