Hooters Establishes National Hooky Day for NCAA Tourney, Offers Doctor's Notes for Fans to Call Out of Work Sick No matter how much Dick Vitale appears on your TV, surrounded by scantily clad models while yelling at the camera in 30-second intervals this month, chances are, you’re not planning a trip to Hooters for NCAA hoops action.

Basketball simply isn’t synonymous with hula-hoops and hot wings (the fiery red sauce makes for a tough grip when shooting 3-pointers or slamming home an alley oop). But if you think about it, tank tops and tight shorts were a staple on the hardwood for decades before Michael Jordan came along with his lucky UNC undershorts. So maybe Hooters is on to something.

The chesty chain is taking things to the next level this month as they’re planning a National Hooky Day for sports fans who want to enjoy the first round (second round?) games on March 17 and 18. They’re even tossing in a fake doctor’s note to show to the boss man as well as a free appetizer.

Quote of the day

“Don’t come. If you don’t like it, don’t come to the games. I think the players realize they could get hurt. They don’t want to do it, but unless you’ve played and see what goes on at the speed of the game, you’re not gonna be able to argue with it.”
–Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau, referring to the Canadiens fans protesting violence in hockey

Comment of the day

Sports in Hotlanta don’t sound too hot.

“Atlanta fans cheer for: (1) Braves (when they’re winning), (2) Falcons (when they’re winning), (3t) Georgia football, (3t) NASCAR, (5) Hawks (when they’re winning), … the Thrashers are way down the list after The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Some folks in Cleveland would love to see Wild Thing toe the rubber once more. Others, well, they want to see him take one in the ear.

I blame the weak rally clap for this guy’s broken back.
