March Madness Results Round One!!!!!!!

Hello all in Blogland, once again it is I, the slaminist sith around, Darth Bill!!!!!!! I don't know why Carl keeps saying I was sick on these posts. The really, real true story was that I had to put down a Jedi uprising on Coruscant (bet you didn't know that the Sith had reconquered the planet, did ya?). You will never guess who showed up to give me a hand on this occasion!!!! The one, the only Darth Jordan (bet ya didn't know he was a Sith Lord). He plays for our Sith Basketball Team against the Jedi Team all the time.

Darth Michael Rules the Courts!!!
