2011 NCAA Tournament: Final Four Open Thread

I feel like I should be sitting here, swilling the brownest of brown liquors and cursing my TV because Purdue should be in Houston. I should be in Houston right now instead of Indianapolis watching Butler and VCU play on my TV. At least it is happening in a parallel universe. Somewhere out there Robbie Hummel never got hurt, Scott Martin never became a traitor, and the Baby Boilers stayed together for four years, with LewJack running point the last three. They stayed together and won the 2010 title, then came back to defend their title with an undefeated run to Houston this year.

Instead, we have our Final Four open thread, greatly unfulfilled and full of bitterness as we cheer on in state Butler. Go Bulldogs.
