Final Four: Confetti Warning - Protect Your Popcorn

By David Scott - April 02, 2007

The NCAA has just distributed a courtside advisory that there will be a "Confetti Drop" at "immiediately following the final horn of tonight's championship game."

"Media are advised to protect their laptop computers, radio equipment, drinks, etc. from confetti that may fall in the press table areas."

The warning is helpful for a number of reasons but mainly because we would have surely thought the sky was falling. It's probably a good idea to protect your own valuables at home in case the NCAA has rigged it so confetti will pour forth all over the nation.

. . . The absconded seat that we are occupying is that of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and we'd like to thank them for not having anyone here tonight. It puts us diagonally behind the radio broadcast crew for CBS Radio and play-by-play man Kevin Harlan has been up and down more than all the players combined. He is the Mexican jumping bean of announcers and it would be comical if it weren't so annoying. Compared to his partners, Bill Raftery and John Thompson Jr. it's the sharpest of contrasts.

. . . Yannick Noah walked by our perch during halftime and his son was right when he said yesterday, "My parents are rock and roll." Without question.

. . . This whole seat stealing thing isn't as bad as I made it out to be when the culprits were Butch (Palm) and Sundance (Sorenson) on Saturday.
