The power of the internets

Kansas is going to be a joke this year.

There, we said it. And the Jayhawks football team heard us. Needless to say they were not to happy... at the basketball team. And they proceeded to beat them like a drum.*

Katie Summers, Tulsa junior, said she was shocked when she saw the altercation as she walked to Anschutz library.

"It was so intimidating to have these insanely big football and basketball players shouting at each other," Summers said. "I just ran to the library and got out of the way."

In the end we got guard Tyshawn Taylor with a dislocated finger.

The Promise

Mrs. M2M has bought us a cable package that will allow us to see virtually any college basketball game we want!

To all college b-ball fans we are truly sorry for the lack of posts this off season. We were hoping for at least one post a week. That was our goal, something we've done prior off seasons.

But we promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this cable package we now have. We promise that you will never see a group of bloggers write as hard as we will once the season starts. We promise we will make more snarky comments, bullshit analysis and predictions than anyone else.

Even if the game is in it's 6th overtime we will push ourselves to stay awake trying to record fans acting stupid.

God bless.

A proper goodbye...

No, this blog is not going away. You wish.

But I did. It's Gabby, one part of the writing crew here at M2M. And no, I'm not going away from this blog either. I just left the place where I founded this blog.

Ok, see I have lived in Los Angeles for about 20 years. And because of job stuff I find myself here in Richmond, VA with Mrs. M2M. Not a huge shock for me because I was born in Hampton, VA which is about 80 miles from Richmond. So I know what to expect from the area. I was reading the awesome Snarkastic and she just moved from LA too and her post inspired me to do a similar post. Because I have no original thoughts of my own. So, here are the things I will miss the most being away from the city of angels...

1) Sunset Blvd.

This is where I first started partying at 18 years old. And this is where I had my last big night out with my friends 20 years later, eventually ending the night at Toi Thai. The restaurant that is so popular they need a doorman as well as a hostess. The choices between bars, restaurants and clubs still boggle my mind. But my fav was...

2) Red Rock

Don't tell Mrs. M2M but this was the place I probably met the most ladies at when I was single. I use to go here BY MYSELF before I knew anyone in the area. Oh, and the food is kind of good too.

3) The Arclight (formerly known as the Cinerama Dome)

Where else can you have a three star dinner, get liquored up, stumble a couple of feet and see a synapse-melting blockbuster movie on a two story high screen all in one building? That place.

4) Club Violaine. The Mayflower restaurant afterward. Locals hangout. Enough said.

5) 3.5 Hour drive to Las Vegas.

6) Elegance has a name and it is Takami. If the sashimi doesn't blow you away, the view will. I'm starting to weep a little.

It's been fun Los Angeles, but now it is time for me to settle down. Get in that good southern country living. Taking it slow.

Basketball in two months, people!
