Welcome to the first game of the Elite 8 where our 1 seed the King Booger looks to be the first time to advance to the final four but to do it he’s going to have to get past the Blowfish. It’s a battle of opposite strengths. The sheer power of Dusty against the psychological bulling of George. Who will reign supreme in this battle of seasoned competitors? The excitement is bubbling in the air already as the fans begin to fill the Wink. There’s something about old man basketball on a beautiful shelter in place Saturday (it’s Saturday right?) that just gets the juices flowing. And speaking of flowing juices let’s pause and remember our sponsor. Coconu. When your juices need help flowing, do it with the all natural help of a giant nut filled with water that grows from a tree. And try our newest product for those alone times…Cocosolo. Cocosolo, when you want to grease up your dolphin and you want it to be USDA certified organic. Cocosolo. Tip off is next!

This game has started off closer than anyone would expect. George came out of the gates bullying Dusty fiercely, going with some oldies but goodies like “four eyes” and “country bumpkin”. Those shots resonated with Dusty who immediately went into a shell and opened the door for the Bully to get off to a quick start. Many pundits felt like this would be the only play possible for George…strike early and strike hard. Keep Dusty on his heels with such classic barbs as “your tabasco shirt is lame” and “you don’t get to have sex at home”. Dusty is doing his best to hang on from these body blows but it’s not been easy so far. It’s 16-9 George early with the Booger looking rattled here in Dubuque.

3/21/20, 12:33 PM - GRC Kubi: That’s funny
3/21/20, 12:38 PM - GRC Baeta: Holy crap. That photo
3/21/20, 12:39 PM - GRC Randy Horn: You all know I give away cups every GRC. Thx for the business Gib.
3/21/20, 12:40 PM - GRC Kubi: Yeah I have a cpl in our games cabinet - I think I’ll break them out 👍
3/21/20, 12:41 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Good call. Could be a golo night!
3/21/20, 12:47 PM - GRC George: The Tabasco shirt!
3/21/20, 12:48 PM - GRC Kubi: Yeah u had some pretty good shots at Dusty
3/21/20, 12:51 PM - GRC Dave Devoe: Good stuff belzer. God bless you.
3/21/20, 12:51 PM - Dustin Boeger: Hmmmm I like the creativity Belzer. But honestly the blue corduroy OP shorts and mullet were a much better shot across the bow. Although glad you didnt unleash the Drinking 101 with the Bacardi 101 bomb.
3/21/20, 12:52 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Some stories stay in the vault DB.
3/21/20, 12:53 PM - Dustin Boeger: Good to know. 😉🤣
3/21/20, 12:54 PM - Dustin Boeger: Could you work in a cheerleading Oompaloompah?
3/21/20, 12:54 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: I almost spit my tea out dude.
3/21/20, 12:55 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Her tiny little arms! So good.
3/21/20, 12:56 PM - Dustin Boeger: 🤭🤫🧝♀️🏃♀️
3/21/20, 12:57 PM - Dustin Boeger: 🧚♀️
3/21/20, 12:58 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Still not my fave
3/21/20, 12:59 PM - GRC Randy Horn:
3/21/20, 1:01 PM - Dustin Boeger: Yeah just gotta test the flavors. Some you just dont go back for seconds.
3/21/20, 1:01 PM - Dustin Boeger: Never dated another chick under 5ft.
3/21/20, 1:03 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: We’re at halftime here in Iowa and it’s still the George show here. The insults are flying fast and there’s no sign of any shellfish in the area (which is good because, well, Iowa). He’s pushed his advantage and Dusty seems to be faltering under the weight of feigned maturity. We know he doesn’t really want to show maturity and be above it all but he’s trying so hard. Bless his little heart. Meanwhile George has used his advantage to his advantage and pressed out to a 34-19 lead. No need to panic yet but one wonders if this is where the top seed falters. Amidst the debates about banking and loan forgiveness, the heady conversations of herd immunity and the greater good one wonders if it’s all just too much for a sensitive, thoughtful modern man? Does the notion of basketball fall short in today’s unpredictable and uncharted world? Does he just take a nap at midcourt like “Sleepy” Baeta (Sleepy Baeta is SUPERMAN!)? We’ve got one half to find out.
3/21/20, 1:08 PM - GRC George: Love that Sleepy Baeta is part of the game.
3/21/20, 1:08 PM - GRC Baeta: Dammit
3/21/20, 1:10 PM - GRC Quinn: You don’t get sex at home is a low blow, even for a bully.
3/21/20, 1:13 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Right Quinn? He took it too far...
3/21/20, 1:13 PM - Grc Jason Belzer:
3/21/20, 1:14 PM - GRC George: So wrong of me.
3/21/20, 1:17 PM - GRC Wags: Who knew Georgie would become bully extraordinare ?
3/21/20, 1:23 PM - GRC Wags: No big black wangs here IMG_11441.3gp
3/21/20, 1:31 PM - GRC Quinn: I would like to bet a gift card for a spa for an alleged rub and tug, on the second half line on the win for No Sex At All.
3/21/20, 1:32 PM - GRC Quinn: Team SD has your back Dusty and your front too.
3/21/20, 1:33 PM - Dustin Boeger: Just yell "GOOD GAME" Quinn and all is golden.
3/21/20, 1:37 PM - GRC Wags: Looks a lot like the Dusty Georgie match up.
3/21/20, 1:38 PM - Dustin Boeger: Belzer forgot about my training growing up as Crusty Boner and as a college town bouncer where insults are hurled at me constantly by small willowy coed with big pillowy breasts bouncing in agitation when their fake ids are confisgated. You would not believe the venom issueing fort from such lovely lips. I think at some point Bullys bluff would get called and Buff Wrangler emerges.
3/21/20, 1:45 PM - GRC Wags: I’m gonna take a Baeta.
3/21/20, 1:48 PM - GRC Quinn: Too funny
3/21/20, 1:50 PM - GRC Baeta: Great. Now I’m a verb
3/21/20, 1:52 PM - GRC Gonen: Could be worse Baeta. There was a time in Mexico when Fowlering meant taking a dump.
3/21/20, 2:11 PM - Grc Jason Belzer:
Nope. It was gas.
3/21/20, 2:11 PM - Grc Jason Belzer:
So apparently the big fella had a whale of a gas bubble and it was cramping him up something fierce. Halftime gave him the opportunity to pop a squat and clear the decks so to speak and he’s a new man here in the second half. Yeah, it turns out George’s bullying wasn’t the obstacle it was last night’s questionable decision to support local businesses with Indian food from a converted ice cream truck in Dusty’s neighborhood playing its siren song of Bollywood classic and promising tikka masala and naan in a Corona-free environment. All good now, Dusty has settled into a rhythm. It’s like a tango on the hardwood…elbow 1 2 3 drive 1 2 3 elbow 1 2 3 score 1 2 3. Dusty has all but erased George’s lead as we head down the home stretch. It’s 47-44 George still clinging to hope like Horsehead to the last chicken wing…
3/21/20, 2:16 PM - GRC Steve Heruty: I thought I would make progress reading this feed today but, much like the virus, the number of unread msgs has gone up exponentially.
3/21/20, 2:16 PM - Dustin Boeger: Belzer have you been spying on my DoorDash account? I did indeed have Indian last night and Tillamook Wafflecone crunch. Its like you can see into my soul... Freaky.
3/21/20, 2:30 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: I've always been able to see your soul DB. Always.
3/21/20, 2:31 PM - Grc Jason Belzer:
3/21/20, 2:35 PM - GRC Quinn: That’s worth more than a Jordan rookie.
3/21/20, 2:37 PM - Dustin Boeger: Nice sun burn bro. Where can I buy that tank its super sweet!
3/21/20, 2:41 PM - Tanner Boeger: I love this tournament... I may not be able to go back. And Baeta you’ve always been a verb.... it’s just that the verbs are changing.
3/21/20, 2:43 PM - GRC Dave Devoe: Total burn on Dusty.
3/21/20, 2:43 PM - GRC George: Brockmire kicked off this week. Some decent laughs
3/21/20, 2:44 PM - GRC Dave Devoe:
3/21/20, 2:58 PM - Dustin Boeger: Belzer do I get to make Jeffersons card?
3/21/20, 2:59 PM - GRC Kubi:
3/21/20, 2:59 PM - Tanner Boeger: You can make mine my brother.
3/21/20, 3:00 PM - GRC Baeta:
3/21/20, 3:00 PM - Dustin Boeger: Yay!😀😉

3/21/20, 3:25 PM - GRC Quinn: Way to get out in nature GRC.
3/21/20, 3:28 PM - GRC George: With all of this activity it is to time for a Baeta.
3/21/20, 3:28 PM - GRC Baeta: Adapt or die
3/21/20, 3:29 PM - GRC Baeta: Damn you George
3/21/20, 3:30 PM - GRC Randy Horn: I hate to nitpick but pretty sure “time for a Baeta” is turning him into a noun not a verb.
3/21/20, 3:35 PM - GRC George: I see home schooling is keeping you sharp.
3/21/20, 3:39 PM - GRC Quinn: As sharp as Dusty’s elbows?
3/21/20, 3:42 PM - GRC Baeta: Word.
3/21/20, 3:44 PM - GRC George: This first game of the elite 8 has taken quite some time.
3/21/20, 3:47 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: Sorry. I took a Baeta too
3/21/20, 3:47 PM - Grc Jason Belzer:
The one seed advances. As Dusty’s gas subsided, his inside/outside game became too much for George who decided to take one last dip in the midwestern shellfish pool before his tourney ended. With the game well in hand, he met Dusty at mid court and toasted him with a shrimp cocktail. Face bloated, belly satisfied (and hair still perfect), the Bully enjoyed the last few minutes of the game in anaphylactic shock as Dusty cruised to a 62-51 victory and the first berth into the Final Four. Dusty, we’ll see you in Shurmur, IL at the Steven Segal Center for Performing Arts in a week for what is sure to be a heck of a weekend. George, we’ll save you a seat at the bar! Where we will all be (virtually) soon enough! To all the wonderful fans here in Dubuque, thank you for making the Midwest Regional so special. As Dusty cuts down the nets here, we’ll remind you to keep your social distancing and, if all else fails, drink heavily!
3/21/20, 3:54 PM - GRC George: Congrats Dusty. Another safety school scholar advances.
3/21/20, 3:55 PM - GRC Baeta: Sensing a pattern
3/21/20, 3:56 PM - GRC George: Liz just woke from her Baeta and time for the afternoon walk. Cheers🥃
3/21/20, 3:58 PM - Grc Jason Belzer: It’s interesting that I hadn’t thought of an all safety school final four. I’m contemplating the idea.
3/21/20, 3:58 PM - GRC Baeta: Let all the money on DeVoe’s next opponent
3/21/20, 4:01 PM - Tanner Boeger: Is Davis a safety school? If so, Chico is a Geico insurance school
3/21/20, 4:04 PM - GRC Gonen: Just awoke from a Baeta. A long Baeta. Was quite nice. And catching up after a nap is a great laugh.
3/21/20, 4:05 PM - GRC Wags: Let me tell you guys, an hour and forty minute Baeta does wonders. I am ready to go!!!
