What’s really going on in Joe Lunardi’s bracket bunker?

These days, no matter what game you are watching, they always cut away to Joe Lanardi in his bunker where he breaks down which teams are on the bubble. Here at The Tailgate Society, we thought something didn’t smell quite right about Joe and his bunker so I recruited @KingsCowboyHat and a team of expendables to break into Lunardi’s bunker. These brave souls pictured below sent us some photos, many of which might not be for children’s eyes, of what is really going on. These pictures are the last known photos of the group we call “Capital One.”  These poor souls gave their lives so we could see what really happens behind those closed doors.

I will do my best to try to decipher what is going on in these photos. This first one is anyone’s guess, really, but these mascots look awfully tortured.

This next photo, I can only assume, is where Joe keeps all of his blackmail material on the coaches for uses of which we can only guess. You’ll notice Coach K is front and center. It’s almost like he has a thing for the ACC coaches…

Is that the theory of relativity? No, that is the super secret formula that the Selection Committee uses to make it so Syracuse makes the final bracket at all costs. They have their reasons for why they must include the Orangemen, which will be revealed below.

You know, I have always wondered why they didn’t zoom out when Lunardi was showing he latest bracket during the games. I guess now we know…..

We better get used to Uncle Roy stealing players from the state of Iowa because it looks like Joe has figured out how to keep him alive for the long haul….

It’s all starting to make sense know. I knew there was a reason you never saw Boeheim outside in the daylight. It is a kind of ironic that the coach of a team called them Orangemen is really a vampire. It really makes you think…

Woah sorry, Joe. I didn’t mean to interrupt your private time with one of your ummmmm “sources”???

Safe to say we now know what happened to the “Capital One” squad that sent us these photos. RIP you sweet souls….

Ted's friends often refer to him as the “Angry Panda" because of his cuddly, teddy bear-like nature and his fierce loyalty to those close to him. He's also not afraid to bite if you cross him or any of his allies. Born and bred in small town, southeastern Iowa, Ted took his Iowa State degree and moved to Kansas of all places. Ted loves to hold on to those small town roots though, by refusing to acknowledge any music made after 2005. His major goals include making the internet fun again, seeing the Cubs win a World Series live, and having a beer with Jon Stewart. This website is a step toward one of those goals.
