Hitachi Duo Pro 4TB External Hard Drive

by Wootbot

It’s hard to decide who to hate the most.


It takes a lot of computing power to process all the ins and outs, all the probabilities, the injuries, the extenuating circumstances, but I think I’ve finally found a way to calculate my NCAA bracket to perfection. Winner? No, I don’t care who wins. I just want to know which team I can feel the most sanctimonious hatred towards. You think I can accurately predict a winner from this ever-expanding freak show? No way. But I can tell you who’s most deserving of your rancor.

I’ve got it all stored on this Hitach Duo Pro Quad 4TB External Hard Drive.

First off, Memphis: they spend each year beating up on a league full of nobodies and as soon as their big name coach jumps ship (after getting their 2008 ticket to the dance voided) they can’t attract a recruit worth a sack of beans. Penn State? Penn State might not be able to outscore a hockey team.

Of course you can’t forget Princeton. Princeton gets to go to the tournament because they won the Ivy League, which is a lot like inviting your little league team to the NBA playoffs because they beat the “Dave’s Groceries Bombers” 6-2. And Kansas! If you hate Kansas, you hate them because they’re always a number one seed stocked with real-life jerks (and alleged domestic violence offenders). If you’re a Kansas fan, you hate them because despite being a perennial number one seed they choke out early almost every single year.

Yeah it’s taken a long time to calculate all the data, but I’ve finally done it. All I needed was a huge storage unit for so much information. This hard drive has really been a big help, and I-

Winner? You want to know the team most deserving of hatred in the NCAA tourney? Come on, man. Duke. Like you even needed a computer for that.
