Oops: CBS Sports Store declares NCAA National Champion five days early

The NC shirts, up close.

The NC shirts, up close.

Jayhawk Nation, let the outrage commence! Here is a classic error made new. On sale over at the CBS Sports shop (still on sale at 12:23 6:12 PM CDT), you can pick up a bit of what they clearly must think is “future history”. They are selling University of North Carolina National Champions t-shirts for the low, low price of $17.99. I don’t know about you, but this kind of stuff really gets my wheat waving! I can think of a few Jayhawks that might think this a bit premature, not to mention UCLA and Memphis fans. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Go KU!

UPDATE: Courtney points out that if you look closely at this image, you can see a completed bracket! Perhaps someone with better eyes than I can use this info to make a small fortune in Vegas! If you do, don’t forget your friendly neighborhood blogger!

UPDATE PART DEUX: If you follow the original link now (9:30 AM CDT, 4/4), they are now offering “National Champion” and “Championship Run” shirts for all four teams. Equity is nice, but should they really be selling these before the games have even been played? Are they really going to press shirts for the teams that aren’t champions? Doubtful.

The 'March Madness' category, with the NC shirt included.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Support craic over genocide!

Support craic over genocide!

Might I suggest, on this highest of holidays, that you consider lending your support to the Proposition 3-17 movement? I signed the pledge and so should you! Make this a national holiday! If a genocidal freak like Columbus gets a holiday, why not a noble Irishman?

Here’s hoping you are enjoying a bit of the craic today and wishing you an t-áadh na nGael. Sláinte!

Pog mo’ préataan!
