Morning Tweet: Someone's after me NCAA picks!

Mar 17, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

I can think of no better way to mark our first St. Patrick’s Day here at OOB than with a Twitter offering from Conan O’Brien, my favorite unemployed talk show host. Two things we can learn from Conan here: 1. If you’re going to have a Twitter profile pic, it might as well be with a monkey; 2. There really is a Savannah College of Art and Design, although it has no men’s basketball program. They do have baseball, however. The Fighting Bees improved to 17-11 after a 5-4 win over the Indiana Institute of Technology on Tuesday.
Do you have your NCAA tourney picks in? Only 24 hours until the big action starts, my little leprechauns. Get those brackets filled out. Orange moons, green clovers, crippling shame and regret for picking Duke.
Don’t sell yourself short, Wednesday. You’re a terrific slouch.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT …

What you missed while engaging in an ‘Italian filibuster”

* The baboon uprising started with golf, will end with the World Cup.

*The question is, will South Africa spend more on its World Cup safe sex campaign, or on president Jacob Zuma’s 20 children?

* Old man will race you to Applebee’s.

You know they’re bad guys because they’re scruffy-looking.

    I don’t know whether to pick the Cal-Irvine Anteaters or the Cal-Santa Cruz Fighting Banana Slugs in the Elite 8. Thoughts, anyone?
