USA TODAY Sports Published 6:17 AM EDT Mar 21, 2019 If you are one of those fans who parachutes in for the NCAA tournament just to fill out a bracket (no judgment), you might be a little confused by some of the language from TV broadcasters and fans during the games. This tournament features its own special vernacular and catchphrases that you won't find in Merriam-Webster. (Onions!!) Here's a guide to some of the top phrases you'll hear throughout March Madness. Anteaters -- Zot! Zot! Zot!: The UC-Irvine mascot and, according to the comic strip "B.C.," the sound an anteater makes when it strikes. Every UC-Irvine game will feature a heavy dose of "Zot! Zot! Zot!" chants. Use it in a sentence: Anteaters with the bucket [Zot! Zot! Zot!]. Big Dance: You've heard this a lot already ... the tournament as a whole is considered the Big Dance. Which explains all of the dancing cliches used to describe teams (Cinderella, the glass slipper, … [Read more...] about March Madness glossary: Defining onions, other terms in NCAA tourney

Brexit Day is now officially 10 days away — though if you believe that, you’ll believe anything. DRIVING THE DAY THE BEST-LAID PLANS: Theresa May has barely 48 hours to come up with a new Brexit strategy after her plans to hold a third meaningful vote this week were kiboshed by Commons Speaker John Bercow. The PM will chair another fraught meeting of her Cabinet this morning as aides scramble to agree a new approach ahead of Thursday’s seismic European Council summit. No. 10’s grand plan to use the threat of a long Article 50 extension to force the Brexit deal through parliament this week lies in tatters after Bercow’s dramatic intervention yesterday afternoon. The big question now is whether some route can yet be found to get the deal back before the House in the days ahead — and then whether … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook: The best-laid plans — Bercow’s mission accomplished — Brexit in space

MPs voted to rule out a no-deal Brexit last night amid chaotic scenes in the Commons. After the 149-vote rejection of her Withdrawal Agreement on Tuesday, Theresa May suffered a second defeat in as many days when MPs backed the cross-party amendment rejecting a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances on Wednesday. In a surprise move, the Commons voted 312 to 308 - a majority of four - in favour of the proposal tabled by former Conservative chairman Dame Caroline Spelman. The vote was later confirmed by a more emphatic 321 votes to 278, overriding a Government motion from Mrs May that would have rejected no-deal on the scheduled date of March 29 but left it on the table for other times. MPs will now vote on an delay to Brexit tonight. And Mrs May has also signalled a third "meaningful vote" on her EU Withdrawal Agreement could be held, following its two previous rejections. Conservative ministers who abstained from voting last night include Solicitor … [Read more...] about How did your MP vote on the no deal Brexit motion?
