It's time to get mad, you guys. Or go mad. Or do something mad. Because it's time for March... well, we're not going to say the rest of it because it's copyrighted and we don't want to get sued.

You guys, I have an addiction. I'm addicted to puns. I need them. I can't get enough of them. I HUNGER FOR THEM. That's why I've set up this weekly blog feature: so you guys can feed my addiction.

There Can Be Only Pun: Shootin' Hoops

by Sean Adams

It seems like I face some new, frustrating dilemma almost every day. For a while, I tried to solve each one on my own, but I just can't do it anymore. I'm in over my head, and I need your help, Wooters! So, each week, I'm going to post a problem that I'm facing and you're going to help me solve it. But here's the catch: the solutions need to be puns. That's right: logic is secondary; puns are the primary goal here. I'll choose the best pun and announce it in next week's post.

THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: The Woot Shot!

Okay, so this week, I'm not EXACTLY looking for puns. Here's the deal. During NBA basketball games, they'll have replays and graphics and whatnot. Well some of them are sponsored - like the Mazda Drive of the Game, or the KFC Bucket Chart - and that got me thinking: Woot should sponsor one. BUT WHAT WOULD WOOT SPONSOR?! Here are some example ideas:

The Trivial Eye: March Madness Team Logos

by Jason Toon

Bracket season is here! Americans across the U.S.A. are competing against their friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow netizens in filling out brackets. There's even a bracket group for Woot fans (which must seem like easy prey for true bracketologists). For the next few weeks, millions of obsessives will follow the action to see whose bracket will overcome all comers and overpower all powers to take the most coveted title in online sports. (I think there's also some kind of "basket ball" tournament going on out there in meatspace.) But if filling out an entire 64-team bracket sounds too much like work to you, here's a game that demands much less commitment. Name the eight NCAA men's basketball tourney teams whose logos are partially shown below. No bracket required.

Here there be answers. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.
