TBS Sullivan & Son bracket challenge
The bar regulars are back for another round of laughs as Sullivan & Son returns for its third season this June on TBS. Starring popular comedian Steve Byrne, Sullivan & Son is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn. With a dynamic and diverse cast of characters, the show brings outrageous humor and politically incorrect zingers that only friends and family can get away with. Especially when they’ve had a beer or two at their favorite bar.
Given their affinity for smack-talking, we engaged the show's four comedians -- Roy, Owen, Steve and Ahmed -- to offer weekly insight (or lack of insight) every Wednesday on their featured bracket, tipping off with their bracket challenge choices:
|The great Ivan Drago said it best in Rocky IV -- "I must break you." Remember that as you see me cruise to victory. Tar Heels over Gonzaga for the championship. You're welcome. Go Ramsay Baseball.|
|For the most part I picked the statistically most-probable teams. My Achilles' heel is Syracuse. A boy from upstate N.Y. can dream. Aside from that, I just went straight probability because the house always wins. Being 6-foot-7 and bad at basketball, my bitter side hopes everyone loses. Kind of like if Byrne was bad at math or Roy was bad at being super loud in public.|
|News flash, nerds: There are two and a half Asian men that know basketball: Jeremy Lin, Yao Ming and Steve Byrne. My bracket is the best because I trust my gut. I go with my instincts and it's this very strong intuition that has won me a sum total of $36 in winnings over the last nine years of performing in Las Vegas. I went with Kansas because the Jayhawks were a favorite early on but they've lost momentum as of late. I think it'll kick back in and now they've got to up there game. Plus, my wife likes the colors of their jerseys and my daughter thinks the mascot is Winnie the Pooh. It's a NO-LOSE situation for me!|
|The Egyptians were one of the first civilizations known to man and basketball was the top sport of choice by the Gods. Ironically only two Egyptians ever went on to play American college basketball and that was Omar Samhan from St. Mary's and Alaa Abdelnaby from Duke. Alaa went on to play pro ball so my pick is Duke!|
